Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EXMT Recap, Options & More

Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

With Tesla posting a big earnings beat yesterday post-market, we’re going to want to signal a range of corresponding options calls to potentially capitalize on this untraded-upon development.

We’ve used the TSLA chain to leverage huge options opportunities in the past, and it would seem that conditions are setting up to give us another good chance at some sizable gains this week. We’re going to focus in on the TSLA Weekly $207.50-212.50 Calls for possible daytrade and/or intraweek swing trade possibilities.

Anything Technologies, Inc. EXMT – EXMT was the standout of the bunch from our morning report yesterday. It was an opportune time to revisit the stock, which we hadn’t mentioned in one of our newsletters since early 2014.

The stock traded in a solid range from .0012 to a high of .0026 for a move of 117% and did so on approximately nine times its monthly average volume. Such activity is more than enough to earn it a continued slot on our watchlist.

IMD Companies, Inc. ICBU - This play that we signaled for observation a week ago today has also been recording solid performances this week, and is related to the aforementioned play in that it is captained by the same CEO.

The stock found its low on Monday at .0033, and has since made one heck of a rebound. Yesterday the stock hit a penny even, marking an intraweek pop of 203%

Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG – Also appearing in yesterday’s report was DNRG, a stock we’ve been actively tracking for well over a year now.

It had been a few months since we last touched upon this play, so the timing here was quite good as well. The stock made a good move from .0022-.0032 on the day, for gains of up to 45%

Tesla Motors Corp. TSLA – Options Update

Our bearish sentiment on TSLA yesterday ended up working in our favor quite well, as the intraday volatility provided traders with not one but three chances to execute lucrative swing trades.  Our specified target range was the TSLA Weekly $200-195 Puts; those three opportunities on the day extended to all three sets of contracts, and were as follows:

$200 Puts – 4.45-8.45 (+55%), 4.15-7.50 (+81%), 4.36-6.35 (+46%)

$197.50 Puts – 4.06-6.35 (+56%), 2.83-5.39 (+90%), 2.83-4.51 (+59%)

$195 Puts – 2.44-5.13 (+110%),1.87-3.81 (+104%), 1.70-2.89 (+70%)

Amid the bombshell that Britain passed a referendum effecting its exit from the European Union (at least a two year process), world markets in general are all feeling the strain at present. TSLA has hit a low of $186 in the premarket, so our observed contracts all stand to produce further gains this morning.

To get ourselves a little closer to the heaviest action in the event of a continued backslide for TSLA, we may consider rolling down our strike range to include the $192.50 and $190 Puts as well.


As we’ve done many times before when attempting to use overall market conditions to our advantage, we’re going to be tracking some SPY Calls for potential daytrades. As long as the SPY can hold above $200, we could be in line to see some major volatility in the SPY Weekly $200-205 Calls. As always, we must issue a strong note of caution with regard to trading weekly contracts on a Friday. It should only ever be attempted by advanced-level traders!

We also want to submit another familiar face for a potential play with much less urgency. For a longer-term idea, we’ll be putting the PBR 07/15 $6.50 and $7 Calls on our radar.

Gold Watchlist:

We also want to provide our readers with a smattering of gold-related stocks to watch this morning. Currencies are taking a big hit, which usually means an influx of investor confidence in precious metals. As such, we will naturally look to plays like these for quick-hit opportunities:

Shire plc SHPG – Options Update

The idea that we formulated earlier in the week with regard to the SHPG options chain has already provided us with gain opportunities, but the gap up we’re seeing this morning could really make things interesting. Just to refresh your memory, our target range was the SHPG Weekly $175-180 Calls.

With the stock gapping up big-time, having already hit a high of 185.00 in the premarket, anyone who entered one or more of these contracts prior to this morning will be in line to reap some serious profits right out of the gate.

Our observed lows for each set of contracts was as follows: $175 – 2.60, $177.50 – 3.00, $180 – 1.65. With every one currently being pushed deep into the money, it will be interesting to see the subsequent highs that are recorded today.

We feel it’s generally a good idea to lock in profits on a gap-up, just in case the stock retraces and fills the gap.



Tesla Motors Corp. TSLA – Tesla took a gut-punch yesterday as Tuesday’s post-market announcement of its offer to purchase SolarCity met mixed reviews, and appears to be setting up for further backsliding.

Should this bearish trend persist into today’s trading session, we’ll be very interested in tracking the activity of
the TSLA Weekly $200-195 Puts.

BioScrip, Inc. BIOS

We also want to provide a brief update on BIOS, a stock we alerted on Friday just in the nick of time to catch a nice uptrend. From a low of 2.23 that day, the stock has recorded higher highs and higher lows every session since, culminating in a new high of 2.87 yesterday. That works out to a respectable four-session boost of 29%

We still like the look of the BIOS chart, which is showing hints of potential for further moves to the upside. Key resistance is sitting at the previous swing high of 3.10, so we’ll be on the lookout for a breach of that level,.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings-Related Options Ideas

Earnings-Related Options Ideas

We’ve uncharacteristically neglected the options trading arena a bit this week, so this morning we’re going to start off by signaling a range of Calls in the chains of a couple stocks whose earnings have just been released.

Tesla Motors Corp. TSLA – Despite a miss on earnings released yesterday post-market, we’re seeing TSLA rebounding from its week-long slide in premarket trading this morning.

We’ll go ahead and formulate a conditional idea to correspond to the situation. Stipulating that the stock can hold support above the current 200DMA (225.98) on any pullbacks following the opening bell and break back above the 50DMA, we’re going to be monitoring the activity in TSLA Weekly $225-230 Calls for the possibility of some nice intraday upswing action.


Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – In early trading BABA is gapping up after an earnings beat this morning which included a 39% boost in Q4 revs, and a 42% monthly rise in active usership via mobile platforms.

We’re going to signal a range of short-term calls for this play as well, zeroing in on the BABA Weekly $77-81 Calls for potential quick-strike trades.

Pot Stocks on Watch Again

There has been a lot of ebb and flow to general interest in cannabis plays, and it appears that we’re heading into another hot zone. We keep a continual watch over the entire sector, and there has been rising activity in many of the pot stocks that we track routinely.

The usual suspects to which we are referring are GRNH, MJNA, CBIS, TRTC, & CANV. We’ll be sure to keep each of them on closer watch in the sessions ahead.

Added Note:

xG Technology, Inc. XGTI, which we tracked from a low of .08 late last month and have been mentioning all this week, is seeing another early push today in the wake of some patent news(>>View PR) . Reserve a slot on your radars as the stock has reached a new high of .18 in the premarket today.

Options Update

Medivation, Inc. MDVN

The fresh idea that we produced in yesterday’s morning report was a rousing success. We had our sights set on MDVN Weekly $41.50-43.50 Calls as outlined in our watchlist, and from within that range came multiple chances for outstanding intraday gains.

$42 Calls – Trading Range: .54-4.29 – Max Gain: 694%
$42.50 Calls – Trading Range: 1.75-3.70 – Max Gain: 111%
$43 Calls – Trading Range: .80- 2.07 – Max Gain: 159%\

The stock is gapping up drastically in the premarket, so we expect it to add to those gains this morning.


Fresh Ideas:

Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA - Today we’re going to hone in on TSLA Weekly $240-250 Calls* for possible daytrades.

ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures UVXY – The markets don’t seem to be responding well to the new jobs figures. Our related target is going to be Weekly UVXY $19-21 Calls*.

*Don’t forget, trading weekly options on Friday is very risky. Not to be attempted if you’re anything less than an expert trader!

Bottom-Watchlist Updates


Yesterday morning, we gave our readers a heads-up on four big board plays that were trading at relative bottoms that we wanted to watch for rebound activity. While it was the most pronounced in SKYS, all four of them produced some level of intraday upswing.

Sky Solar Holdings Ltd. SKYS – As we said, the clear winner for the session was SKYS which rode a wave of upward momentum from a morning low of 1.30 to a subsequent high of 2.58. That gave anyone who caught our alert a chance at gains of up to 98% on the day! The ranges and gains on the remaining trio of bottom plays were as follows:

Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. RCPI - Range: .295-.365  – Gained: 24%

United States Anitmony Corp. UAMY – Range: .1997-.243 – Gained: 22%

Towerstream Corp. TWER – Range: .1099-.129 – Gained: 17%

We’ll leave all four on our radars in sessions to come to spy for signs of continued recoveries, with the recording of higher lows and higher highs.


Strikeforce Technologies, Inc. SFOR

We also had SFOR come off of our extended watchlist to put up a solid session. The stock ran from a low of .0007 and reached .0013 for an 86% intraday rip.

Latest From the Chatroom

As many of you already know, we conduct daily live traders chats via Skype, and one of our valued participants produced another bigtime winner yesterday. DJ was at it again with his knack for sussing out hidden gems, and the whole group benefited.

He spotted NVNT and shared with the room, and what followed was an epic run from .002-.024 (+1100%).
