Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CSX Review & More

CSX Corp. CSX – Options Review

We presented our readers with an options idea concerning CSX yesterday morning in the wake of the company’s solid quarterly earnings report, the CSX Weekly $65-67.50 Calls.

What followed was an exceptionally bullish session for the railroad giant, which facilitated some really nice intraday multi-bag gain opportunities.

Not surprisingly, big moves were exhibited by every single contract in our designated range of six sets:

$65 Calls– Range: 1.64-4.00 – Max Gain: 144%
$65.50 Calls – Range: 1.42-3.54 – Max Gain: 149%
$66 Calls – Range: .91-3.00 – Max Gain: 230%
$66.50 Calls

 Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. WBA – Recap

Also included in our morning report yesterday were the WBA 08/17 $67.50 & $70 Calls, and those too enjoyed some notable intraday gains for the session.

Despite selecting calls with August expiration, the payoff to this idea was all but instantaneous, with each of our two ideas logging significant intraday runs to the upside. The $67.50′s traded in a range from .93 to 1.45, a gains of 133% while the $70′s went from .40-.65, which works out to a gain of 63%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WBA Recap & Special Alert

 Walgreens Boots-Alliance Inc. WBA

We made our interest in the WBA options chain very clear yesterday morning, stating that “in addition to exceeding expectations with their quarterly report, the stock was already looking ripe for a bottom bounce.”. As it turned out, our shrewd premarket observation made it possible for our readers to bag some truly epic gains on the day in three out of the four highlighted contracts .

Our designated targets were the WBA Weekly $69-70.50 Calls and the moves they made on the day were astonishing, including an absolutely eye-popping 78-bagger, even as the markets as a whole had the worst down-day in months!

$69 Calls – Range: .01-.79 – Max Gain: 7800%
$69.50 Calls – Range: .06-.59  – Max Gain: 883%.
$70 Calls – Range: .05-.35 – Max Gain: 600%

We’ll continue to keep an eye on these ideas as we head into the end of the week.


Twitter, Inc. TWTR

We’ve also got a frsh options idea for TWTR, after noticing a significant gap-up in the stock here in the premarket. The company Q3 earnings showed it is inching very close to profitability, which could happen as soon as next quarter, and traders are responding. TWTR is presently filling a big gap on the chart, and has the look of a play that could produce a significant dip-and-rip once the session commences.

We’re going to be looking at the TWTR Weekly $18-19.50 Calls.
