Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGC – Update

As we were mentioning yesterday morning, ICG was a near-perfect bottom call we made roughly three weeks ago in our report on September 10th and thereafter we would observe a low of 1.03.

For the past couple of weeks the stock has been on fire, gaining ground by leaps and bounds, and yesterday it recorded yet another huge session. From a daily low of  9.50 the stock ran to a new high of 14.58, for an intraday gain of 53%

From our initially observed low midway through last month, that marks an overall increase of 1316% Cheers to any of our readers who have been in on this mega-runner!


Tesla Inc TSLA – Recap

Yesterday morning we mentioned that our idea from Tuesday morning, the TSLA Weekly $300-310 Calls, most likely stood to gain even more ground based on the stock’s premarket activity.

As it turned out, we were absolutely correct, with each of the five contracts we designated as items of interest extending their highs on the day. Here are the updated figures from Tuesday’s session through yesterday’s closing bell:

$300 Calls – Range: 11.10-18.60 – Max Gain: 68%
$302.50 Calls – Range: 10.00-16.25 – Max Gain: 62%
$305 Calls – Range: 8.65-15.30 - Max Gain: 77%
$307.50 Calls – Range: 7.70-13.45 – Max Gain: 75%
$310 Calls – Range: 6.60-12.00 – Max Gain: 82%

Tesla is gapping up today and looks to be ready to push these contracts deep in the money, so we’ll expect to see these ranges and possible gains extended even further from here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WFM Followup, ZSAN & More

Whole Foods Market, Inc. WFM – Options Update

Our primary focus for yesterday morning’s premarket report was our running options idea from last week. We were mentioning that the WFM 02/17 $30 and 30.50 Calls had begun to heat up, and we didn’t want to miss out on the activity that seemed ready to kick our idea into effect.

Our assumptions turned out to be accurate, with WFM stringing on another good session performance. The $30 Calls traded up from a low of .54 to .90 (+66%), while the $30.50′s made their way from .20-.42 (+110%).

We also mentioned that a break of the 50DMA at 30.76 for WFM would prompt us to look at contracts with a higher strike price and later expiration, the WFM 02/24 $31 Calls. We did indeed witness a breach of that price point toward the end of the session, and those calls came into play as well, running from 20-.35 for a chance at a nice 75% gain.

Should the solid uptrend WFM has been putting together continue into future sessions, these could be an ongoing item of interest for us.


Zosano Pharma Corp. ZSAN

ZSAN is a play we highlighted on Monday after the company reported that in its ZOTRIP pivotal efficacy study, its M207 transdermal migraine therapy patch met both primary, as well as secondary endpoints.

We mentioned that not only were we going to experience the effect of positive study data, but a technically ripening chart as well, leading us to put the stock on high alert in coming sessions.

It was a good decision, as the stock has really gained momentum this week, putting together some solid sessions. In fact, yesterday the stock closed as the NASDAQ’s top gainer of the day. We’ve watched as ZSAN has traded up from a low of 1.65 to yesterday’s new high of 3.49, representing an intraweek upswing of 112% Cheers to those of our readers who came along for the ride!



Opko Health, Inc. OPK

We put OPK on bottom watch earlier this month, and after a few sessions of further consolidation, the past four trading days have shown some convincing bottom-bounce action.

The stock ultimately found support at the 7.99-level last week, from which it has logged five straight sessions of higher highs and higher lows, reaching 8.66 yesterday. While that action only equates to an 8% increase, it’s the massive gap on the chart to the upside from just under $10 to just over $11.50. We’ll look for the stock to continue to build gradually and maintain the current trend in hopes of seeing a run toward a gap-fill.

MarilynJean Interactive, Inc. MJMI

We want to circle back around to a play we tagged for observation last week. MJMI has been making a good deal of progress, showing upward momentum over the past couple of sessions.

Subsequent to our mention of the stock we took note of a .091 low (Friday), and after a couple days on the upswing, MJMI reached a high of .216 yesterday afternoon. It represents a three session-swing amounting to 137%

We’ll want to see the stock maintain support at or above the 50DMA at .16 on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.


Potential Momentum Plays

Each of the following stocks represents the possibility for continued momentum coming into this morning’s sessions. Both closed just a shade under their respective highs-of-day, and will be placed on watch as we cruise through midweek.

CollabRx, Inc. RNVA – We’re no strangers to this stock, which is in the midst of filling a sizable gap on the chart that presently runs from current PPS levels in the mid-to-upper .30′s, on up to around .47.

Yesterday RNVA hit a high of .39 before closing just below at .37. We’re looking for the stock to produce its fourth consecutive session of higher highs and higher lows today.
______

Intermolecular, Inc. IMI – IMI is new to our reports this morning, and qualifies as both a bottom-bouncer as well as a potential momo-play. It also ended up closing with strength, just a hair shy of its daily high yesterday.

It comes less than a week removed from a big PPS dropoff, so we’ll be on the lookout for the stock to continue this rebound and regain some of the ground it has lost over the past week or so.


Tempur Sealy International, Inc. TPX – Options Update

We also want to provide a quick update on the TPX longer-term options idea that we’ve been tracking for over a week now. We were initially interested in the TPX 08/19 $70-80 Calls. The $70′s have since been pushed too deep in the money, but over the past week both the $75′s and $80′s have performed quite well:

$75 Calls – Range: 1.91-4.50 – Max Gain: 135%
$80 Calls – Range: .38-1.35 – Max Gain: 255%

We’ll continue to track these plays leading into their expiration next Friday.

Tempur Sealy International, Inc. TPX – Options Update

In Friday morning’s premarket report, we were providing updates on an options trading idea that we’d initially put forth on Thursday, the TPX 08/19 $70-80 Calls. The three sets of contracts had managed to yield gain opportunities ranging from 60-118% in that first session.

We also mentioned that because of the extended expiration date, we’d want to stay hot on the trail of this idea, and it was a good thing we did, because potential profits were extended with new highs in every case.

Our total observed gains over a two session span are as follows:

$70 Calls – Range: 3.00-6.10 – Max Gain: 103%
$75 Calls – Range: .90-.2.54 – Max Gain: 182%
$80 Calls – Range: .25-.60 – Max Gain: 140%

Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – Recap

As a fresh daytrading idea, we also submitted the AMZN Weekly $762.50-770 Calls for observation on Friday, and saw some nice chances for solid gains there as well, early on in the session.

All of these huge moves occurred prior to the lunch hour:

$762.50 Calls – Range: 1.56-4.57 – Max Gain: 193%
$765 Calls – Range: .88-3.46 – Max Gain: 293%
$767.50 Calls – Range: .64-3.00 – Max Gain: 368%
$770 Calls – Range:  .16-1.15 – Max Gain: 619%


Vapor Hub International, Inc. VHUB

VHUB appeared in our morning report on Friday as well, and put up a notable intraday run itself. From a low of .008, it broke out of subpenny territory and reached as high as .018. That was good for gains of up to 125% on the day.

Ideally, we’d like to see the stock maintain its penny-plus status moving forward, but technically, it would hold our interest as long as it stays above Thursday’s swing high of .0094 on any dips.


Kraig BioCraft Laboratories, Inc. KBLB

We recently came back to stock that we’ve covered a lot in the past. On July 13th we alerted the play, when it was trading as low as .0261, and on Friday, the stock hit a high of .069, marking an upswing of 164% in just over two weeks’ time.

We’ll continue to follow its progress as we kick off a new trading week, granted that it closed with strength just a tick below its high of day. In order to keep our attention, we’ll need to see it hold support at or above .04 on any forthcoming consolidations.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Weekly Wrap-up, Fresh Ideas

Evoke Pharma, Inc. EVOK

Leading into yesterday’s session, some people might have looked at a gapped-down, backsliding, new 52-week low play like EVOK, and dismissed it out of hand. Those people would have missed out on the prime opportunity we provided our readers in tagging the stock for observation in yesterday’s premarket report.

Whenever we see a stock showing any indication of bounce activity off of an annual low, it puts us on high alert, and plays like EVOK are the reason for that. The stock traded in a range from 2.51 up to 3.28, a solid single-session swing amounting to 31% and it appears as if the massive gap on the chart beginning at 3.50 is already in the process of being filled, with the stock trading as high as 3.70 in early trading this morning.

We want to see the premarket low of 3.15 hold as support on any pullbacks in order to sustain our immediate interest in EVOK.

______

Added Notes:
Tokai Pharmaceuticals. Inc. TKAI and CytRx Corp. CYTR – These plays are currently boasting charts that are incredibly similar to the situation we found EVOK in yesterday, with major gap-downs leading to new lows, with a hint of bounce activity in yesterday’s session. We’re going to place these stocks on alert this morning as well.


Tempur Sealy International, Inc. TPX – Options Idea

Yesterday, as we caught TPX coming off of an earnings beat, we wanted to put a range of call contracts on watch to leverage the expected subsequent activity to our advantage. Due to the fact that there were no weekly calls to track, we submitted a longer-term set of contracts, yet the gain opportunities were immediate.

Our target calls, the TPX 08/19 $70-80 Calls, all made appreciable moves on the day:

$70 Calls – Range: 3.00-5.40 – Max Gain: 80%
$75 Calls – Range:  .90-1.96 – Max Gain: 118%
$80 Calls – Range: .25-.40 – Max Gain: 60%

We’ll continue to monitr these plays in the week ahead leading into their expiration.

Fresh Idea:
Expert traders may want to take a look at AMZN Weekly $762.50-770 Calls for potential daytrades today on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat.


North Springs Resources Corp. NSRS

NSRS was also an item of interest from yesterday’s report, having been entered into the extended watchlist as a potential bottom-bouncer. We got just the type of rebound we were after, as the stock traded up from a low of .033 to a high of .043. That was good for a nice 30% gain opportunity, and the stock will remain on our radar provided it can continue to build a higher base level of support off of its bottom.
