Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Tons of Options

Options Updates

Late last week, we selected a few contracts in the Facebook and Twitter options chains for longer-term ideas. The FB 10/12 $182.50-190 Calls, and the TWTR 10/12 $35 & 37.50 Calls. While they haven’t blown their lids quite yet, we wanted to reiterate our interest in tracking these over a longer time period.

The somewhat nominal gains achieved so far are as follows:
FB 10/12 $182.50′s: .53-.80 (+51%) | $185′s: 40-.54 (+35%)
TWTR 10/12 $35′s: .33-.52 (+56%) | $37.50′s: .28-.40 (43%)

We’ll continue to track these ranges, as there is still plenty of time for them to begin realizing their full potential. What we’ve seen to this point may be just the beginning.

With a major category-4 hurricane currently inbound for the Carolina coastline this week, we’re also going to highlight some plays in Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement, which tend to see surges in the wake of storms big enough to require extensive cleanup and repairs. According to all predictive models, Hurricane Florence definitely fits that bill.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CNET Recap & More

ChinaNet Online Holdings, Inc. CNET

CNET made an excellent move following its inclusion in yesterday’s morning report, as the stock would go on to trade in an impressive range from  a low of 2.41 up to a new annual high of 3.98 on nearly 34x its one-month average volume. The strong 65% intraday run came in the first hour of trading, so folks had the chance at some very rapid, very substantial gains. Congrats if you were among them!


Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bear 3X ETF (JDST)

We introduced JDST as a way to leverage against the falling prices of gold yesterday, and it’s working out in our favor so far. This ETF didn’t waste any time Monday morning, as it began a morning ascent that would last all day and carry it from a low of 14.65 to 16.88, a modest yet solid gain of 15%

We’ll have our eyes on this one for as long as it appears that the dollar will continue to strengthen.


OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST

Our scanner yielded three interesting plays with news out of varying subjects.

NXT-ID, Inc. NXTD, has a mobile wallet product that they bill as the truly the first universal secure payment solution, which, as it does not require a smart-phone, provides certain advantages over other eWallet-type products now being pushed by Apple (ApplePay) among others. The stock made a significant move in yesterday’s trading, and will be on our radars today. >>> Shareholder Update PR

China Jo-Jo Drugstores, Inc. CJJDreleased financials yesterday and received a warm reception from traders. Some of the highlights included:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates on LWSP, TTDZ & PBR

Legacy Platinum Group, Inc. LWSP
-
We’d like to update everyone on the status of one of this week’s successful picks. We first brought LWSP to our readers on Tuesdaymorning, at which time the stock opened up at .187.LWSP spent the next two sessions on the upswing, culminating in yesterday’s push to  a new high of .33. That marks a three-day overall increase of 76%

Moving forward, we’ll need to see support hold at or above .21 in order for us to remain interested in LWSP.

Remember, per Tuesday’s PR, we’re waiting for an upcoming name and symbol change, expected to begin on May 16th.  We’ll also be on the lookout for further updates from the company on its new direction in the e-cigarette and portable vaporizer market.


Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. TTDZ

For some of our newer readers, allow us to do a quick recap of how TTDZ has become one of 2014′s superstar picks for us. Beginning with our first alert on the stock on January 30th, we observed a low of .0012. and it has been pushing its upper boundaries ever since.

By the time mid-March rolled around, the stock had punched above .015, gaining well over 1200% from our first call, but the party was just getting started.

Flash forward to the present, and TTDZ has pressed its way all the way to an impressive high of .0385. Which means that in less than two months, we’ve seen a total increase of 3108% out of TTDZ.

This is another play that recently transitioned into the cannabis sector that has applied for a name and symbol change, and we expect to have an update on that within the next few weeks.


Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR

After picking up on PBR exactly two weeks ago today, we’ve seen some impressive trading action in that short time, especially with regard to the options chain.

Besides coming across this stock shortly after it hit all-time lows, and witnessing the start of one heck of a recovery, we also received news this week of PBR’s boosted production numbers from February, which were significantly higher than those of previous months.

Today we’ll be looking at the $13 and $13.50 Weekly Calls for possible intraday flip-opportunities. For those without the ability to stay glued to your screens all day, for longer-term possibilities, we’ve noted our interest in the May $12 Calls and the April $14 Calls.

In the event that PBR fails to hold support at or above the 13-dollar mark, we would have to reassess our opinions.

SKTO, AAPL & Extended Watchlist

SK3 Group, Inc. SKTO

SKTO was one play from our marijuana watchlist to really have a bang-up session yesterday. On more than 5X the 3mo. average volume, the stock surged nearly 40% from its early morning low of .0135 to a late afternoon high at .0188.

The move not only broke through previous resistance at .015, but continued to roll, surpassing the current 200DMA (.016) as well. Moving forward, we’d ideally like to see support hold above .015.


Apple, Inc. AAPL

Apple’s quarterly earnings exceeded Wall Street’s expectations on Monday, fueling some extremely volatile post-market trading. After hours, we saw a significant pull-back followed by a bounce which has AAPL currently trading in the low 530′s. Yesterday afternoon’s high in the $542-range is going to act as the next resistance barrier.

We made the right choice with our last options call in moving our strike price up to $525, which as it now stands, should be pushed deep into the money with the current trend.
