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.

To refresh your memory, we slated the AAPL Weekly $150-155 Calls for observation in Tuesday’s premarket report, and they provided solid gain opportunities ranging from 78-146% that day.

Here are the updated figures showing the lows from Tuesday, to the new highs attained yesterday.

$150 Calls – Range: 2.30-4.80 – Max Gain: 109%

Fresh Options Ideas


While we’re on roll with options calls, we might as well let it ride by selecting a couple of other ideas that are worth monitoring.

Tiffany & Co. TIF - Tiffany’s chart is showing a decent bottom setup, while some insider buying was reported this week near 4-month lows. We’re going to highlight the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls and keep them on our radars in the days and weeks ahead.

Blackberry Ltd. BBRY - For a more short-term idea, we’re going to signal the BBRY Weekly $9.50 & $10 Calls on the heels of Blackberry’s premarket earning beat. Prior to today, the stock has hovering around a solid level of support at roughly $9 for quite some time, but today’s release could definitely have a positive effect on the chart. The company posted a beat on profits and revenue, while software sales set company records.
