Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review, Other Updates

Options Review

Just to refresh our readers’ memories, we highlighted a range of call contracts for three separate plays on Friday, and we’re pleased to report that sizable gains were there for the taking regardless of which idea was chosen. It marked the continuation of a flawless streak of such ideas that we offered up over the past few weeks.

Our tracked calls and the magnitude of the gains that were available were as follows:

SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) Weekly $199-202 Calls – We’ve successfully played the SPY so many times it doesn’t even bear counting, and Friday was no different. From the low end of our range to the high, gains of 80-427% were made.

Finisar Corp FNSR Weekly $15 and $16 Calls – An earnings beat made the gains in FNSR calls possible, with the $15′s running 88%, and the $16′s making a 92% upswing.

Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. ULTA  Weekly $175-185 Calls -  Last but not least, we had the ULTA contracts on our watchlist bank gains running from 59-117%

Again, it was yet another great week for options, and we’ll be doing everything in our power to keep the streak alive with some more ideas this week so be sure to stay tuned!


Friday’s Stock Gainers

In addition to our great success with options plays from Friday’s morning report, we had a number of other intraday movers which were also highlighted.

Propanc Health Group Corp. PPCH

This was our top-billed mention on Friday, having been following it for most of last week. A string of solid performances led the stock on a great intraweek run to that point which spanned from our observed low of .0188 to .037 (+97%) in just a few sessions.

We saw even more gains tacked on there during Friday’s trading, wherein we witnessed another nice intraday pop from the daily low of .0355 to .0516 (+45%), and the high extended our total observed range to an impressive 174% in a matter of four sessions.

_____

Mexus Gold US (MXSG)

Mexus was another point of discussion in Friday’s newsletter, and it too saw appreciable gains on the day.

We’d already been very familiar with the stock after tracking over a more than 1000% move in early February. We then re-tagged it the Wednesday before last and subsequently witnessed a 61% swing from .011-.018.

Friday’s session brought a continuation of that run from .017 to a high of .0299, a 71% intraday rip, and increased the total swing range to 172%

_____

Spectrascience, Inc. SCIE

SCIE was included in Friday’s tracklist and the stock would end up trading in a range from .003 to .0047, for total possible intraday gains of up to 56% on slightly heavier than normal volume.

It also managed to close just a tick below the high of day, so we’ll keep an eye peeled for the possibility of momentum spillover into this new trading week.


GW Pharmaceuticals, Inc. GWPH

We want to pin GWPH to our tracklist after catching a significant PR coming across the wires this morning. Late-stage studies on a cannabidiol (CBD) treatment of a rare pediatric disease has yielded positive results, and the stock has thus far gapped up over 100% in the premarket.

We’ll take our classic stance of monitoring for a possible dip-and-rip situation and look to get positioned in some in-the-money Calls, dependent upon where the bounce occurs.

LONDON, March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GW Pharmaceuticals plc (GWPH) (GWP.L) (“GW,” “the Company” or “the Group”), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics from its proprietary cannabinoid product platform, announces the positive results of the first pivotal Phase 3 study of its investigational medicine Epidiolex® (cannabidiol or CBD) for the treatment of Dravet syndrome.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning Options Calls & More

Options Updates

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF

We had very good fortune with most of the ANF options contracts we signaled in yesterday morning’s premarket report following an earnings beat. We were after intraday trade possibilities in the ANF Weekly $29-32 Calls, and with the exception of the $32′s which weren’t pushed into the money, gains of over 200% were available across the board.

$29 Calls – Trading Range: .50-1.51  – Max Gain: 202%
$29.50 Calls – Trading Range: .29-1.10 – Max Gain: 279%
$30 Calls – Trading Range: .19-.75 – Max Gain: 295%
$30.50 Calls – Trading Range:  .13-.53 – Max Gain: 308%
$31 Calls – Trading Range: .07-.34 – Max Gain: 386%
$31.50 Calls – Trading Range: .05-.16 – Max Gain: 220%
$32 Calls – Trading Range: .05-.11 – Max Gain: 120%

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

We also want to give a quick update on another extended-term idea we had recently. On Tuesday, we submitted PBR 04/01 $4 Calls for observation, and those have made a run from .13-.25 (+92%) as PBR has traded up from 3.55 to 4.13.

We expect the figures on those gains to keep rising today as PBR has advanced as high as 4.39 thus far in the premarket. We’ll be sure to stay on the trail of those contracts, with nearly a month left on the contracts before expiration. We’ll also keep an eye on the $4 and 4.50 Weekly Calls. Of course, we’ll look to roll our strike prices up if the situation dictates.



Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

AEZS is a familiar play that we’d like to touch base with again this morning after noticing some interesting chart activity. The stock broke its 50DMA during yesterday’s trading session and is presently trending up in the premarket, testing resistance in the $4-area. The next area of resistance comes in at 5.18, where a gap on the chart begins, and extends up to the 6.50 level.

We’ve prepared a snapshot below which outlines the highlights of the current AEZS chart.



EffTec International, Inc. EFFI

EFFI is another recent mention we’d like to update our readers on this morning. After signaling EFFI in our watchlist on Friday, the stock has gone on to make a solid move. We observed a low of .0024 followed by a high of .0049, which works out to a 104% swing.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Watch Plays, Options Ideas & More

Recent Winner Roundup

We’ll kick things off this morning by highlighting a few of our recently tracked plays that came by solid moves to the upside start the week off yesterday. In each case, we’ll be on the lookout for possible continued momentum on the heels of yesterday’s strong showings.

USA Restaurant Funding, Inc. USAR

We were following USAR beginning on Wednesday of last week, and would observe a low of .0067 on that day. It has been off to the races in the four sessions since, as USAR streaked to a high of .0148 during yesterday’s session. That’s a hefty rise of 121%

SpectraSCIENCE, Inc. SCIE

SCIE was another of our interests from last Wednesday’s report, and it too has performed superbly in ensuing sessions. The total gain on this stock has also gone into double-bagger territory as it rose from Wednesday’s low of .001 to a new high of .0021 yesterday; a 110% jump.

Service Team, Inc. SVTE

In the case of SVTE,  we followed this play over a huge two-session rip on (February 9-10th) as the PPS shot from .0039 to .0188. (+382%). We then observed a consolidation that eventually resulted in a low of .0049 on Friday. Yesterday’s high came in at .011: a two-session swing of 124%


Blue Earth, Inc. BBLU – Bottom Watch Play

We’re quite intrigued by the massive selloff undergone by BBLU between Friday and Monday without so much as a fluff PR, or negative filing to explain the dramatic losses. The stock is now trading at all-time lows, and as our regular readers are surely aware, this is exactly the type of situation for which we’re constantly scanning.

We’ll go ahead and reserve a slot on our radar screens for BBLU with an extended bottom-watch designation. It’s far better to show up to the party early and be ready to strike immediately upon the slightest hint of a rebound, than to wait until it has occurred, and more opportunistic traders have already reaped most of the rewards.


Bonus: Options Ideas

Finally, we’ve got some longer-term options ideas relating to stocks we’ve been very familiar with in the past, that are now beginning to show signs of recovery off of recent bottoms. We’re going to signal  PBR 04/01 $4 Calls and WTW 04/01 $13 Calls  and keep them on a close watch in sessions to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Leap Day Report

Happy Leap Day!

Good morning, Traders! Before we jump into today’s report- it’s February 29th- so we’d like to wish our readers a Happy Leap Day! On this, the rarest of occasions, we thought it’d be interesting to use our archives to do a four year time-warp back to the last leap day and see what we were talking about.

It turns out that we had signaled Energy Recovery, Inc. ERII as a bottom-play opportunity on the morning of February 29th, 2012, and it  turned into one heck of a long-term idea. The stock actually ran from it’s then-price in the 2.50-range to nearly 8.00 over the course of the next two years!

Flash forward to the current situation; ERII has been trending upward for the past two weeks solid, after having just announced an upcoming share buyback program a few weeks prior to that (>>View PR). Meanwhile, we have an RSI heading toward the power zone, and a MACD (not pictured) showing sharp upward divergence. We’ll monitor the stock in coming sessions on the chance that it continues the nice head of steam it has built up at the moment.


Updates on Recent Winners

INTREorg Systems, Inc. IORG

We first introduced IORG to our reports two Fridays ago, when the stock was trading as low as .62, and it has since gone on to reach a high of .88. This 42% rise came on relatively light volume. Given that IORG has such a low float (just 14.4M shares outstanding) it’s possible that only a slight amount of buying pressure can effect even larger gains than we’ve seen thus far, so we’ll have an eye peeled for increased activity.

Provision Holding, Inc. PVHO

PVHO first began appearing in our reports a few weeks back, and has continued to do so with regularity. On the day of our initial mention we observed a PPS of .084, and subsequent high of .18 (+114%). That was followed by an eventual dip back to .106 before rocketing to a new high of .25 (+136%). We’ll continue to track PVHO as long as it keeps inching its way up the chart.


Palo Alto Networks, Inc. PANW – Options Update

Among our options daytrading ideas from Friday morning’s report, one stands tall among all the others. The PANW Weekly $147 Calls ran from .10-2.00 for an incredible 1900% rip, marking not the first or second, but *third* gainer of 1500% or more for the week!

Fresh Idea: Taser International, Inc.TASR (03/04 $18.50-20.50 Calls)

Salesforce.com, Inc. CRM – Options Update

Our fresh options idea in yesterday morning’s report panned out very well for us when all was said and done. We highlighted a range which encompassed six sets of contracts, the CRM Weekly $67.50-70 Calls, and regardless of which strike point was chosen, hefty intraday profits were there for the taking from around lunchtime, right up until the close.

The magnitude of the potential profits we observed were certainly not as epic as the two separate chances at 1500% gains provided to us by our Macy’s calls from earlier in the week, but in and of themselves, still very impressive.

$67.50 Calls – Trading Range: .70-2.04  – Max Gain: 191%
$68 Calls – Trading Range: .37-1.70 – Max Gain: 359%
$68.50 Calls – Trading Range: .35-1.20 – Max Gain: 243%
$69 Calls – Trading Range:  .12-.83 – Max Gain: 591%
$69.50 Calls – Trading Range: .13-.60 – Max Gain: 362%
$70 Calls – Trading Range:  .08-.30 – Max Gain: 275%

We must be doing something right when a 500% rip begins to seem small by comparison! In an attempt to extend our extreme good fortune with options plays this week right up to the end, we’ve prepared a couple of ideas* for possible day-trades based on premarket activity this morning.

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. – PANW Weekly $147-152.50 Calls

Baidu, Inc. - BIDU Weekly $172.50-177.50 Calls

*Pertaining to both of the preceding ideas, remember to always consider the inherent elevated risk associated with trading weekly options contracts on a Friday!


USA Restaurant Funding, Inc. USAR

After USAR offered us the chance at intraday gains of up to 51% on Wednesday as it ran from .0093-.0148, we suggested that a bounceplay could be in the cards, given the volatility we had observed- the stock had pulled back considerably toward the end of the session.

The rebound we referred to did come to pass during yesterday’s session, as USAR traded up from its daily low of  .0071 to a high of .0098. That represented a modest but solid 38% move on the day.


Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK – Update

We placed AGTK in our reports multiple times earlier this month, and the stock has responded with quite a nice performance in the intervening weeks since those tags.

Shortly after our most recent mention, we’d observe a low of .003 followed by a steady ramp-up at first, giving way to more significant increases this week. It culminated in a high of .0121 yesterday which marked an overall swing of 303% in fewer than a dozen sessions!

Based on its heightening activity, we’ll continue to leave a slot open for AGTK on our radar screens moving forward.
