Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Related Options Ideas

Earnings Related Options Ideas

As our regular readers are well aware, a majority of our focus in recent years has been shifted from straight stock trading ideas to options. More specifically, short-term options in companies that have just reported their quarterly earnings.

We are the absolute best newsletter for options daytrading in existence, routinely providing ideas with multi-bag gain potential each and every week. Our record, which anyone can view at any time in our archives, speaks for itself.

After a huge number of reporting companies just released their quarterlies and several high impact economic reports came back positive this morning, we’re going to revisit some ideas in a few chains that have been good to us in the past:

Shake Shack, Inc. SHAK Weekly $67.50 Calls
Weight Watchers International, Inc. WW Weekly $22.50 Calls
SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) Weekly $292.50 Calls

____

Bonus Idea:

Biogen, Inc. BIIB has been largely trading sideways since its huge flop on its alzheimer’s drug back in March caused a massive cratering of the stock. We look for large gaps on charts like this, along with signs that a stock has reached its lowest likely trading value. The latter signal, we can infer from the huge blocks of insider buying at current levels which have been reported over the past week. Two Form-4′s amounting to a total of roughly $20M in insider buys suggest that the current base is solid. We’ll look to take advantage of a longer-term idea and track the BIIB 07/19 $240-250 Calls.


ARCA Biopharma, Inc. ABIO

Occasionally we do still provide straight stock ideas as well, when a solid bottom or news play catches our attention. We put ABIO on bottom watch at the end of March when it was trading in the upper-$6 to $7 range. The stock was under steady consolidation for the whole of April, and reached as low as 5.01 just this week before launching into a huge two day uptrend.

Yesterday it reached a new high of 20.45, which marks an overall rise of 308% We also re-tagged it in our premarket report yesterday, and for those that only put it on their radars following that alert, yesterday’s intraday move alone was fairly impressive. It ran from 12.03 up to the previously mentioned high, which marks a one day upswing of 70%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MBRX Blows its Lid

 
Kimberly Clark Corp. KMB

We want to kick things off this morning by highlighting the fantastic options idea we included in yesterday morning’s premarket report. That was the KMB Weekly $125-128 Calls, and we’re pleased to relay the stellar first-day performance of those contracts, all four of which produced enormous multibag intraday moves, including a thousand-percent-plus play in the $128′s.

$125 Calls – Range: 1.40-7.14  – Max Gain: 410%
$126 Calls – Range: 1.00-6.50 – Max Gain: 550%
$127 Calls – Range: .72-4.90  – Max Gain: 581%
$128 Calls – Range: .36-4.80  – Max Gain: 1233%

Hasbro, Inc. HAS Weekly $97-101 Calls
Lockheed Martin Corp. LMT Weekly $327.50-$337.50 Calls


Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX – Recap

Following the FDA fast-tracking of the company’s Annamycin drug, yesterday morning we noted that this stock we began tracking late last month had risen by 89% (.7772-1.47) right on the heels of the good news. It would appear that the development took some time to fully filter through the investment community, because even we weren’t prepared for the enormous continuation of momentum that has now transpired.

From yesterday’s 1.25 low-of-day, MBRX shot up like a rocket and ultimately reached a new peak of 3.15. That worked out to a single session surge of 152% From our initially observed low, it represents an increase of 305% in just over three weeks of trading. This has not turned out to be our biggest stock-only call of the year so far just yet, but it is right up there among the best.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAT Updates & More

Caterpillar, Inc. CAT – Update

After having some success earlier in the week with some higher priced CAT options, we observed a course correction, and yesterday informed readers that we would be rolling our strike prices down to the CAT Weekly $143-145 Calls.

It’s a good thing that we did, too, because we saw some excellent intraday gain opportunities off of those ideas after the session commenced:

$143 Calls – Range: 1.82-5.05 – Max Gain: 177%
$144 Calls – Range: 1.49-4.20 – Max Gain: 182%

Fresh Options Ideas:

Chipotle Mexican Groll Inc. CMG Weekly $380-385 Calls
Facebook, Inc. FB Weekly $165-172.50 Calls


Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. SGSI

We tagged SGSI along with its news yesterday morning, and the stock performed very well as a result. Those PRs alluded to some exciting things happening for the company, namely being awarded $1.5M in new contracts, along with a massive share reduction.

SGSI traded in a range from .0055-.0094, for a 71% rip. It was enough fuel to start the fire, now we’re going to want to continue to monitor the situation on the chance that further swing trade opportunities present themselves.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Post Earnings Options Review

Our premarket report on Friday focused on two sets of options ideas from companies which had just posted earnings beats that morning. As it turns out, there was a big time opportunity in each of them.

General Electric Co. GE - We signaled the GE Weekly $14-15 Calls, and it was the $14 and $14.50′s that produced solid chances to profit from that idea. The $14′s ran 106% from .36-.74, and the $14.50 really shined with a move from .03 to .25, a whopping gain of 733%
___

HoneyWell International, Inc. HON – We also highlighted our interest in tracking the HON Weekly $150 & $152.50 Calls for possible day-trades, and while the 152.50′s didnt see a lot of action, the $150′s were a perfect idea, trading in a mind boggling range from .01 to .52, a 5100% single session gain! Big cheers to anyone who caught a piece of that action!


Hasbro, Inc. HAS

Hasbro came out with their quarterly earning report which disappointed, according to the company, because of the Toys ‘R Us shutdown. The stock had already registered a new 52 week low on Friday after nearly two months of backsliding, and we’re still thinking it has a ways to fall.

That’s why we’re going to adopt a bearish stance and signal the HAS Weekly $78-76 Puts to start of this new trading week.
