Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LAHO Recap & More

Lans Holdings, Inc. LAHO

When we picked up on LAHO on Tuesday, it was what we refer to as a super-subpenny stock, trading at a low of just .0005/share. Over the past two sessions it has made an incredible move. Yesterday, after gapping up in the morning, LAHO went on to set a new high of .0017, which works out to a 48-hour swing of 240%

Following that high, the stock came back down to fill the gap it left, and we are going to want to see .0009 hold as support in order to give us a good likelihood of seeing further moves from LAHO in the near-term, but as it currently stands, it has already been a great intraweek play for us no matter how you slice it.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS

We’ve also got a pair of options ideas from companies that have untraded-upon earnings reports. We’re bearish on Palo Alto Networks, which reported yesterday post-market, and bullish on Dollar General, whose report dropped this morning in the premarket, including a solid beat on both earnings and same-store sales for the quarter.

PANW $202.50-200 Puts

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGC – Update

As we were mentioning yesterday morning, ICG was a near-perfect bottom call we made roughly three weeks ago in our report on September 10th and thereafter we would observe a low of 1.03.

For the past couple of weeks the stock has been on fire, gaining ground by leaps and bounds, and yesterday it recorded yet another huge session. From a daily low of  9.50 the stock ran to a new high of 14.58, for an intraday gain of 53%

From our initially observed low midway through last month, that marks an overall increase of 1316% Cheers to any of our readers who have been in on this mega-runner!


Tesla Inc TSLA – Recap

Yesterday morning we mentioned that our idea from Tuesday morning, the TSLA Weekly $300-310 Calls, most likely stood to gain even more ground based on the stock’s premarket activity.

As it turned out, we were absolutely correct, with each of the five contracts we designated as items of interest extending their highs on the day. Here are the updated figures from Tuesday’s session through yesterday’s closing bell:

$300 Calls – Range: 11.10-18.60 – Max Gain: 68%
$302.50 Calls – Range: 10.00-16.25 – Max Gain: 62%
$305 Calls – Range: 8.65-15.30 - Max Gain: 77%
$307.50 Calls – Range: 7.70-13.45 – Max Gain: 75%
$310 Calls – Range: 6.60-12.00 – Max Gain: 82%

Tesla is gapping up today and looks to be ready to push these contracts deep in the money, so we’ll expect to see these ranges and possible gains extended even further from here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stocks & Options Movers

General Mills, Inc. GIS – Options Idea

As our regular readers are perfectly aware, we never stop looking for earnings related options plays. Even now, amid a relative lull in quarterly reports, we’re seeing an interesting possibility with General Mills.

After its Q4 earnings report this morning, wherein a solid beat on profits was achieved, the stock is up to the tune of 2% in the premarket. There is also a large gap on the chart to the $50-area. In this situation, we’re interested in tracking the GIS Weekly $45 & $47.50 Calls for the remainder of the week.


TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We wanted to come back to comment on TRXC this morning as well. We tagged this stock for observation just a shade over a month ago on May 23rd, and since that time, the stock has enjoyed a very solid uptrend which has led to new highs this week.

On the day of our initial alert on TRXC, we had observed a low of 2.82, and the srtock never fell below that point. Yesterday’s new high came in at 5.70, marking an upswing of 102% in a matter of four and-a-half weeks!



Kopin Corp. KOPN

For something new to put on our radars this morning we also want to make mention of KOPN. As you can on the annotated chart below, at the present time, KOPN is displaying a strong multiple bottom formation, in addition to having just reached heavily oversold territory.

We are going to place KOPN on watch in the days ans perhaps weeks ahead and will be interested to see how it behaves with this cherry of a technical setup.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSLA Recap & More

Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea
-
TSLA stock was running hard after KeyBanc analysts predicted a 50% rise in Model 3 deliveries, and we entered the mix yesterday morning with a set of options ideas to take advantage of the situation. We certainly hope that our words didn’t fall upon deaf ears, because of the five contracts in the range we slated for potential quick strike trades, all five produced single-session gains of over 100%

Our designated targets were the TSLA Weekly 337.50-347.50 Calls and we were very impressed with the total potential gains made available by all of those contracts:

$337.50 Calls – Range: 8.00-19.00 – Max Gain: 138%
$340 Calls – Range: 6.76-17.10 – Max Gain: 153%
$342.50 Calls – Range: 5.75-15.16 – Max Gain: 164%
$345 Calls – Range: 4.97-13.50 – Max Gain: 172%
$347.50 Calls – Range: 4.20-11.90 – Max Gain: 183%

From what we’ve seen thus far, we have reason to believe that we may see some further opportunities in these ideas before the week is out, so we’ll allow them to keep their slots on our radar screens for the time being.


H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea

As a fresh options trading idea this morning, we want to bring attention to HRB, which despite turning in a beat on earnings yesterday in the post market, is taking a beating here in early trading.

Combined with the fact that the stock was already looking toppy and about to breach into heavily overbought territory, we’re ready to look at a range of puts, to take advantage of what may be a significant course correction to the low side. We’ll be tracking the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Post-Earnings Options & More

Dollar General Corp. DG

First up this morning is a look at DG, which revealed its Q3 earnings report early this morning, and appears to be gearing up for some continued bullish activity, for which we’ll want to formulate an options trading idea.

The stock has been in a general uptrend for many months, seeing its annual lows in June, and trading in a general upward channel ever since. DG is gapping up roughly 5% in premarket trading, and we’re going to look for action in the DG Weekly $93.50-96 Calls today and possibly tomorrow as well.


Lululemon Athletica

This is another stock that has put up a good performance since late spring. After seeing its own annual low at the end of May in the $66 area, LULU has recently breached the $90 mark.

That upward climb could continue on the heels of what was a solid beat on both sales and earnings in the post-market yesterday, as well as boosted sales guidance. When coupled with the $200M share repurchase the company has just authorized, and we have another excellent candidate for some options trading ideas. In this case we’re interested in tracking the LULU Weekly $72.50-74 Calls.
