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: Recapping Friday’s Winners & More

South American Gold Corp. SAGD
(soon to be Sativa Growth International)

We initially tagged SAGD on June 21st, signaling our interest in tracking the stock as it was trading as low as .0135. We saw a nice 170% move to .0364 in a matter of week, something we mentioned on Friday when we recapped the stock’s impressive move.

Friday’s session itself brought another opportunity in SAGD in the form of a dip-and-rip scenario. The stock traded for as little as .0255 before rattling off a new high of .0378. It marked an intraday swing of 48% and as measured from our initially observed lows, the new high marked an overall increase of 180% in just over a week.

We’ll be continuing to track the company’s efforts to effect a name and direction change, as it attempts to enter the cannabis space.



SPDRA S&P 500 ETF – SPY Options Recap

On Friday morning, we took a crack at the SPY by signaling some options as the markets looked ready for a solid session. We highlighted the SPY Weekly $270-272 Calls, and the moves exhibited by those contracts were respectable and worthy of mention.

The total possible intraday gains were as follows:

$270 Calls
– Range: 2.32-3.65 – Max Gain: 57%
$271 Calls – Range: 1.37-2.62 – Max Gain: 91%
$272 Calls – Range: .57-1.70 – Max Gain: 198%


UpperSolution.com URSL

We also would like to quickly make mention of URSL, a penny play we took notice of this morning after a recent run of extreme volatility. The stock has come back down to a relative bottom after a recent incredible run from less than fifty cents to more than 5.50/share. On friday the stock fell back off of a cliff down to the 1.50 area.

With these types of swings occurring in the past handful of sessions, we’re interested in tracking the stock’s activity as we kick off this holiday-shortened week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TNDM Recap & More

Tandem Diabetes Corp. TNDM

First up this morning, we want to recap the performance of TNDM, since slating it for observation on April 11th. The following day, the stock found support at 6.62, and hasn’t looked back since.

Yesterday, after what has been a bullish period that has already persisted for weeks on end, the stock hit a new high of 11.30. That works out to an upswing of 71% in just a shade over a month, and the highest PPS the stock has seen for more than eight months. We’re not that far off from seeing TNDM test the highs from its huge run back in August of last year.


Stein Mart, Inc. SMRT

We also would like to backtrack to a call we made even earlier in the year that has made some excellent long term progress. We signaled interest in SMRT back on March 16th, and in these past two months the stock has done little else but continue to bull its way upward.

From the 1.33 low we witnessed shortly after that alert, SMRT has gone on  to reach a high of 3.35. That works out to a gain of 152%



The Home Depot, Inc. HD – Options Idea

HD was already looking a bit top-heavy, and that’s before the company released a an exceedingly disappointing quarterly report.

We’re going to want to track a range of bearish options ideas to correspond with the present situation- the HD Weekly $187.50-182.50 Puts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FL Earnings & More

Foot Locker, Inc. FL

The markets took a beating yesterday, and we appear to be headed for another generally bearish session. On a normal day, we’d look for post-earnings plays that had a beat and were gapping up in the premarket. Today, we were looking for an earnings miss and a stock on its way down, and FL fits the mold.

The company’s Q4 earnings disappointed on sales and guidance and it appears that, coupled with current market conditions, a play on some puts may yield quick strike opportunities today. We’re going to zero in on the FL 03/16 $45-41 Puts.



iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures (ETN) VXX

As we said, another turbulent day for the markets could be headed our way to finish out the week, so we’re going to want to keep mostly to the bearish side of the street.

Much as the SPY trades with the market, the VXX trades inversely to it. Instead of SPY puts, we’ll go with VXX calls today for another possible quick strike options idea. We’re looking at the VXX Weekly $47-49 Calls.

*Trading weekly options on a Friday should never be attempted unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TVIX Update & More

VelocityShares Daily 2X VIX ST ETN (TVIX)

As we’re sure everyone is aware, we’ve seen the biggest two-day downturn for the markets in history. Luckily, we had already added TVIX to our watchlist in our report on the morning of January 30th.

We began tracking this fund, which trades inversely to the market as a whole, and subsequently observed a low of 5.50. With the market bloodbath yesterday, the TVIX was pushed to a new high of 14.77.

That landed our total possible gain on this play at 169% but that figure has grown even further as a new high of 20.30 was registered in premarket trading this morning putting our total observed range on the TVIX at 269% over a span of just a few sessions.


Lumentum Holdings Inc. LITE

We’re also seeing a stock that is bucking the trend this morning. Even as it appears we’re headed for another down day in general, LITE is gapping up in the market after having recently bounced off of its lowest PPS since last May.

We’re actually going to go bullish on this one, and signal the LITE Weekly $44-46 Calls for observation.


Quotient Ltd. QTNT

Speaking of bounceplays, QTNT is looking interesting as well. We wanted to quickly make note of this. As you can see on the chart snapshot included below, it saw some surprising activity yesterday but came back to settle below 3.00, with the MACD on the cusp of a bullish cross and the RSI giving off a heavily oversold signal.

We’ll keep an peeled here as well, for another possible bucking of the ominous trend currently underway for the markets at large.
