Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Wrap-Up, Bottom Play

Options Wrap Up

After a fantastic week of options trading, which followed several weeks of the same, we continued to roll the dice with a couple of fresh day-trading ideas on Friday, and unsurprisingly got some great results from those as well.

We had the SPY Weekly $282-283 Calls on the radar and all three returned excellent multi-bag gain opportunities for the session:

$282 Calls – Range: .62-1.64 – Max Gain: 165%
$282.50 Calls – Range: .29-1.16  – Max Gain: 300%
$283 Calls – Range: .10-.67 – Max Gain: 570%

We also had included a fresh idea with the TSLA Weekly $345 Calls after absolutely crushing it with the $320-330′s earlier in the week, and those also performed nicely on the day. They traded up from a low of 2.07 all the way to 10.19, marking a whopping 392% single-session rip!


Tyson Foods Inc. TSN – Fresh Idea

We are going to kick things off this week by formulating both a short and longer-term set of options ideas for TSN. The company has just released a mixed earnings call, beating on Q3 profits, but missing on sales. Despite that, it is the technical setup of the chart that has us most intrigued.

Having been beaten back for close to two months to extreme-oversold levels, the stock began to show signs of a bottom bounce toward the end of the week, with a gap to fill on the chart from the mid-$60 to mid-$63 range.

For the possibility of quick strike chances, we’re going to monitor the TSN Weekly $58-59.50 Calls, and for a potential extended term recovery play, we’ll also keep watch over the TSN 08/31 $62-63 Calls.


Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Run Continues

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Final Update

We’re coming back around to mention AAPL for the third consecutive time today, with the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls we selected on Wednesday morning continuing to pile on bigtime gains.

Practically every options idea we’ve looked at in this incredible bull market has been working out in our favor, and this old favorite has been no different. Here are the updated figures for the total possible gains which could have been attained as a result of our report on Wednesday:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-13.25 – Max Gain: 314%
$197.50 Calls – Range: 1.71-10.80 – Max Gain: 531%
$200 Calls – Range: .81-8.40 – Max Gain: 937%


More Options Success

Our premarket report yesterday also contained two fresh sets of options ideas for Tesla, inc. TSLA with the Weekly $320-330 Calls, as well as the Wayfair Inc. W Weekly $110-115 Calls.  Both ideas produced fantastic chances for huge single session multi-bag profits:

TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls,
$320 Calls – Range: 7.20-30 – Max Gain: 316%
$322.50 Calls – Range: 6-28.27 – Max Gain: 371%
$325 Calls – Range: 5.25-25.26 – Max Gain: 381%
$327.50 Calls – Range: 4.20-22.25 – Max Gain: 430%
$330 Calls – Range: 3.10-20 – Max Gain: 563%

We’ll be looking at the possibility of rolling up to the TSLA Weekly $345 & $350 Calls for today, but please, do not trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are expert trader with disposable funds. While the rewards can be great, the risks are of equal gravity!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

Apple, Inc. AAPL

We handed our readers Apple on a silver platter yesterday, suggesting they look to the AAPL Weekly $195-200 Calls for opportunities, and those who heeded that suggestion were met with extremely pleasant results.

Our success with options trading ideas has become so commonplace that we hardly need to mention that all three of the ideas contained in our targeted range produced excellent intraday moves.

The single session gains available to sharp traders were as follows:

$195 Calls – Range: 3.20-6.90 – Max Gain: 116%
$197.50 Calls – Range: 1.71-4.55 – Max Gain: 157%
$200 Calls – Range: .81-2.51 – Max Gain: 210%


SodaStream International, Inc. SODA

Apple wasn’t the only options chain we successfully called yesterday morning. SODA was the other highlighted play for which we signaled our interest, and it ultimately ended up as the NASDAQ’s #3 gainer of the session. We zeroed in on the SODA Weekly $99-105 Calls and two out of the three produced multi-bag moves on the day. 

The $100 Calls traded in a range from 4.42-10.30, marking a gain of 133%  The $105′s fared even better, shooting up 200% from 2.00 to 6.00.


Tesla, inc. TSLA

For a fresh idea, we’re going to be looking at TSLA, which, despite a miss on Q2 earnings, is still gapping up here in the premarket. That’s enough to get get our attention here in the short term regardless of where the stock is ultimately headed .

We’ll look at the TSLA Weekly $320-330 Calls as we head into week’s end, for potential quick strike trading opportunities on a dip-and-rip.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PEP Recap & More

PepsiCo, Inc. PEP – Options Recap

Yesterday morning Pepsi’s earnings provided us with one of the pair of options ideas included in our report. We were focused on the PepsiCo, Inc. PEP Weekly $109-112 Calls and are pleased to report that we found success with those immediately.

The single-session gain opportunities available to anyone who partook were substantial to say the least, continuing an impressive pattern of huge options winners we’ve uncovered over the last several sessions.

$109 Calls – Range: 1.23-4.00 – Max Gain: 225%
$110 Calls – Range: .70-3.05 – Max Gain: 336%
$111 Calls – Range: .38-2.05 – Max Gain: 439%
$112 Calls – Range: .19-1.30 – Max Gain: 589%


Tesla, Inc. TSLA

On Friday we began tracking some TSLA Calls, and we did remind our readers of these contracts yesterday, cautioning that it appeared as if the stock was ready to facilitate some good moves in our targets.

The TSLA 08/02 $300-315 Calls were those targets, and our hunch proved correct. While we swept the range, finding gains in all seven sets of contracts, in the interest of time, we’ll simply provide the moves from the bottom and the top of the range. Just keep in mind that the sets in between also enjoyed commensurate moves to the upside.

The $300 Calls ran from a low of 22.54 to a high of 35.81 for a gain of 59% while the $315′s ran from 16.70 to 26.01; an increase of 56%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

After following up a string of successful SPY calls from last week, we added a fresh quick-strike idea yesterday morning. With the markets looking ready to pop after positive jobs numbers were released, we signaled our interest in tracking the SPY 07/09 $275.50-277 Calls.

Trading options with same-day expiry always carries a high risk, but in this case, it was well worth it, with each of our designated contracts producing gains of a significant nature on the day.

$275.50 Calls – Range: 1.18-2.74 – Max Gain: 132%
$276 Calls – Range: .80-2.01 – Max Gain: 151%
$276.50 Calls – Range: .48-1.42 – Max Gain: 196%
$277 Calls – Range: .23-.93 – Max Gain: 304%
_____

Tesla, Inc. TSLA

An idea that we formulated on Friday was with some extended term TSLA Calls. We wanted to remind readers of these contracts this morning, as the stock is behaving like we might now see the move that we predicted at the end of last week.

The TSLA 08/02 $300-315 Calls should be in line to see some nice gains with the stock itself gapping up hard here in the premarket.

Fresh Idea:
For another fresh options trading idea on the heels of PEP’s earning beat, we’re going to be tracking the activity in the PepsiCo, Inc. PEP $109-112 Calls.


RiceBran Technology RIBT

We have included RIBT in our reports on each of the past two Mondays, and the stock has made appreciable moves to the upside in that time span.

Between our initial alert last Monday, after a low of 2.21 from which the stock hasn’t looked back, yesterday’s new high reached 3.09, marking a one week upswing of 40% We’ll be interested to see how far the stock can continue to streak into blue skies.
