Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ATVI Review & More

Activision Blizzard, Inc. ATVI

On Friday, our primary focus was a bottom play in the form of ATVI, which had just been beaten back to its lowest prices since December of last year. Our inclination was to signal a range of longer term calls in the options chain, and we had instant results from those ideas.

All four of the contracts contained within our designated range produced single-session gains of a significant nature.

$55 Calls – Range: 3.20-5.00 - Max Gain: 56%
$57.50 Calls – Range: 2.30-3.60 – Max Gain: 57%
$60 Calls – Range: 1.40-2.68 - Max Gain: 91%
$62.50 Calls – Range: .90-1.84 – Max Gain: 104%


Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACB

We have followed ACB for years, but this is the first time we’ve done a feature on the stock since it was ACBFF trading on the OTC Markets. The company uplisted to the NYSE, making it one of the few cannabis plays to do so.

After having been trading at a relative bottom toward the end of last month, the stock has been gaining some ground, and is gapping up a bit this morning on the heels of its quarterly earnings report.

Aurora’s revenue increased four-fold, and its earnings surpassed $100M in the first report issued by the company since the legalization of marijuana in Canada barely a month ago. We’ll be very interested to follow up with its conference call and expected guidance, as well as track it more closely through this new quarter.


Cronos Group, Inc. CRON

Speaking of earnings, CRON has a report upcoming early this week, and despite the PPS tapering back over the past couple of sessions, we’ll be interested to follow along with its post-release activity.

We tracked CRON over its recent solid 53% run from 6.50-9.95, and we’ll be eager to see if a solid earnings report can help reinvigorate the stock. We also made some great options calls on CRON last week, which we may swing back around and do again tomorrow, with favorable enough quarterly figures.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks NKE Bear, KMX Bull & More

Earnings-Related Options Ideas

Our regular readers know that quick-strike options trading of plays that have just seen their quarterly earnings releases are among our favorite scenarios. The volatility afforded to us by these events is key to the type of opportunities we are commonly after.

This morning, we have NKE which has untraded-upon earnings reported in the post-market yesterday, and Carmax which dropped its report in the premarket today. We’ve got a set of bearish ideas for NKE and bullish ideas for KMX.

We’ll place the following targets on our watchlist today to monitor throughout the remainder of the week:

CarMax, Inc, KMX Weekly $77-79 Calls
Nike, Inc. NKE Weekly $83.50-81.50 Puts

L.B. Foster Co. FSTR

We also have a longer term idea for the FSTR chain. As you can see on the chart snapshot we’ve included below, the stock is presently exhibiting a strong multiple-bottom.

We’re going to place the FSTR 10/19 $22.50 & $25 Calls on watch in the likely event that a recovery does occur.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DPW Recap & More

Digital Power Corp. DPW

We began to track DPW in Monday’s premarket report, and with the help of a key Bitcoin related PR, the stock has performed quite well since then. We suggested that Monday’s bullish activity could be followed up with more of the same in yesterday’s report, and that’s certainly what occurred.

DPW traded in a daily range from an early low of 2.70, all the way up to an afternoon high of 4.27, marking an intraday burst of 58%   As measured from our observed low of 2.15 on Monday, that high represented a two-day swing of 97%

We will once again track this play very closely, with Bitcoin streaking to new all time highs yet again, touching $12,798.78 shortly after 8AM Eastern this morning. The company just released plans to launch a line of Bitcoin mining hardware, and anything related related to the space should continue to be a hot ticket item amid the current crypto-craze.



American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO

We’ve come to rely on going after big options trading opportunities, especially after a company releases its earnings. Despite having fallen short of Q3 expectations for profits and revenue, AEO posted solid same store sales growth, and issued promising guidance.

As a result, the stock has continued its recent bullish run, and we’re going to want to signal the AEO Weekly $16.50-17.50 Calls for observation over the remainder of the week.


Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. TTNP

We’re going to place TTNP on watch this morning as a potential bottom play. One look at the chart snapshot below clearly shows that the stock is currently exhibiting a strong double bottom signal. We can also see the nearly 100% move it recorded in recent months. We’ll be looking for similar activity in coming sessions.

More Ideas -
We’ll keep the post-earnings retail options train rolling today with two fresh sets of ideas using the Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF and Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR chains. We’ll have the ANF Weekly $10 & $11 Calls, and the DLTR Weekly $78-82 Calls on watch as we head into week’s end.


Rimrock Gold Corp . RMRK

We included RMRK in yesterday morning’s premarket report, after noticing some abnormal activity building up in the previous session.

It was a good thing that we did, because yesterday’s performance from the stock was explosive. It traded in a range from .0006 to .0025 on the day, for a fantastic single-session rip of 316%

The move occurred on volume of more than 1.8 billion shares traded; an all-time high for RMRK.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NEWC Executive Interview & More

New Colombia Resources, Inc. NEWC On Monday of last week, we offered up a special report highlighting the business of NEWC, a company with its hands in both the mining and cannabis sectors. If you missed out on that report, we’d suggest you check it out now: NEWC Special Report.

Today, we’re going a step further, with an exclusive executive interview video that we’d like to present. Our interview outlet, Stock Traders Talk is back this morning after having conducted a talk with New Colombia President John Campo about the various facets of his business. It gives our readers a chance to get the skinny on NEWC straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, so don’t miss out!

We also took a minute to prepare a snapshot of the current NEWC chart:


BioNovelus, Inc. ONOV

Beginning in April and up until our most recent mention of the stock last month, we tracked ONOV to exponential gains which took it from .006 to .15; a 2400% increase!

This week, the stock has been ramping up to incredible new highs yet again, logging three consecutive sessions of higher highs and higher lows that have taken it up to .43. That works out to a 187% jump from our observed low last month, and a mind-melting 7067% over our all-time low from this spring.

Anything from this point on would be icing on the cake, but we’ll want to see the stock maintain support off of a recent swing high at .185 to remain interested.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX -  Options Idea

Yesterday we signaled the NFLX Weekly $88-85.50 Puts after a poorly received earnings report from the prior day was causing the stock to backslide in the premarket.

Our hunch to stick with a bearish sentiment payed instant dividends, with every single contract contained in our observed range making notable intraday increases:

$88 Puts – Range: 2.50-4.00 – Max Gain: 71%
$87.50 Puts – Range: 2.24-3.69 – Max Gain: 64%
$87 Puts – Range: .85-3.23 – Max Gain: 292%
$86.50 Puts – Range:  .74-2.90 – Max Gain: 280%
$86 Puts – Range: 1.56-2.56 – Max Gain: 65%
$85.50 Puts – Range:  1.35-2.30 – Max Gain: 60%
