Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Happy New Year!

Huge Winners from Friday

We highlighted multiple options ideas on Friday, and are pleased to report that we found major success across the board. Despite closing flat, the markets as a whole produced an intraday run which was sufficient to push everything on our radar to huge gains. It was a great way to close out 2018 with a bang, especially considering the poor trajectory we were on just a few sessions prior.

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – For the SPY we formulated two sets of ideas, one for calls and one for puts, and because of the market, both ideas were hugely successful. They were the  SPY Weekly $248-249.50 Calls, and the SPY Weekly $251-250 Puts. For the Calls, the crux of the gains came in the 2 o’clock hour, while the heaviest moves for the Puts came at Power Hour.

$248 Calls – Range: .84-3.47 – Max Gain: 313%
$248.50 Calls – Range: .64-2.80 - Max Gain: 338%
$249 Calls – Range: .50-2.50 – Max Gain: 400%
$249.50 Calls – Range: .40-2.05 - Max Gain: 410%

$251 Puts – Range: .81-3.81 – Max Gain: 370%
$250.50 Puts – Range: .62-3.21 - Max Gain: 418%
$250 Puts – Range: .43-3.02 - Max Gain: 602%

Tesla, Inc. TSLA

We also had a range of TSLA Calls lined up on Friday, and those all fared extremely well also. The gains were even more impressive than those of the SPY, with a five, a six, and an eight-bagger in the mix!

$322.50 Calls – Range: 2.14-13.50 - Max Gain: 531%
$325 Calls – Range: 1.39-11.05– Max Gain: 636%
$327.50 Calls – Range: .90-8.80 - Max Gain: 878%


HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM BLUE HORSESHOE!

Despite the last few weeks of horrid market conditions, 2018 as a whole was another great year for us, and it was nice to finish it on a similar high note. We focused on, and will continue to focus on high risk high reward options plays, with stocks peppered in when appropriate. We appreciate every single one of our readers, and will strive to continue serving you well, as we head into Blue Horseshoe Stocks’ ninth calendar year!

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Options Ideas

We’ve now had two consecutive sessions of gains for stocks following a weeks-long downtrend, and are eager to see if this reversal of fortune has a more lasting effect. With a high degree of uncertainty at play, and the potential for volatile swings in either direction, we’re going to signal two opposing sets of ideas in the SPY chain, to set ourselves up for any eventuality. We may even see a case of another dip-and-rip kind of session, where we play one set early on and another later in the day.

Our two sets of ideas are going to be the SPY Weekly $248-249.50 Calls*, and the SPY Weekly $251-250 Puts*.  If the SPY can get above the premarket high of 251.16 during the session, we’ll look to our bullish ideas. Failure to do so, will cause us to track the bearish ones. Either way we should have good opportunities laid before us by the SPY today.


Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

We’ve also formulated an idea for the TSLA chain. Tesla stock is getting another boost this morning after proposed additions to the board of directors, including Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle Corp. (ORCL), are being very well received by investors.

We’re going to track the TSLA Weekly $322.50-327.50 Calls* on the heels of this announcement.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Tech Options Review

OPTIONS REVIEW

We were banking on a market reversal yesterday in tandem with good performances from a couple earnings plays that we formulated some options ideas for, and got everything we wanted.

Both of the plays were in the tech sector, which turned out to see some of the highest incidences of recovery, and it facilitated some very nice gain opportunities for anyone who was paying attention to our ideas.

Despite the appearance of yet another reversal and possibly another down day, we are quite pleased with the double-bag, single-session gains afforded to us by these two tech stocks.

TSLA Weekly $310-317.50 Calls
$275 Calls
– Range: 3.73-8.81 - Max Gain: 136%
$275.50 Calls – Range: 3.10-7.35 – Max Gain: 137%
$276 Calls – Range: 2.41-6.21 - Max Gain: 158%
$276.50 Calls – Range: 2.05-5.04 – Max Gain: 146%

We also had a fresh idea on Wednesday morning with The Boeing Co. BA Weekly $357.50-367.50 Calls and the surge in the markets yesterday also allowed those contracts to get legs and make some very respectable moves:

$275 Calls – Range: 4.00-7.70 - Max Gain: 93%
$275.50 Calls – Range: 2.60-6.00 – Max Gain: 131%
$276 Calls – Range: 1.85-4.32 - Max Gain: 134%

Blue Horseshoe Stock: Tech Options Plays

TECH OPTIONS

We’re seeing a bit of a rebound in the markets this morning after they once again got crushed yesterday. Partially due to a better-than-expected economic report on Durable Orders, we’ll look for the highest profile companies with fresh earnings out that appear set to move this morning.

TSLA and MSFT both dropped their reports in after-market hours yesterday, and look to be our most promising potential targets today.

The tech sector as a whole was among the hardest hit in the recent spate of losses for domestic stocks, with many, if not most of its players being beaten back to unsustainably low levels, so the timing is actually quite good for some solid movement off of these earnings reports.

We expect a market recovery to provide us with plenty of chances to take advantage of all of these underpriced stocks as they rebound in the days and weeks ahead.

TSLA Weekly $310-317.50 Calls
MSFT Weekly $104-107 Calls

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.
