Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Wins

Options Reviews

General Mills, Inc. GIS – We were looking at the General Mills chain beginning
on Wednesday morning, when we designated the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls as targets of interest for the week. We got some very nice profit opportunities out of that set, with plenty of time for the possibility to realize further gains.  The $47.50 Calls rose from a low of 1.40-3.55, an upswing of 154% The $50′s traded in a range from .27-1.47, which works out to a huge jump of 444%

Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI  – On Thursday morning, we added the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls to our pool of ideas, and those really made a splash as well. In the two session span following our alert, we witnessed a move up from a low of 1.15 to a high of 4.30. That represents a rapid increase of 274%
_____

Revlon, Inc. REV - Finally, on Friday, we continued our streak of new ideas with an extended-term idea on Revlon. A pair of big insider buys was what led us to place these on watch. We’ll continue to track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls. For Friday, they each managed modest increases, with the $22.50′s running from 2.55-2.90 (+14%) and the $25′s going from 1.25-2.00 (+60%). These will be on our radar for quite some time, but got off to a nice start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WGO Earnings Beat & More

Quick Updates

We won’t go into too much detail on these two plays, as we just did writeups on them in yesterday’s report, but each of the following stocks did continue their impressive runs yesterday so we wanted to update readers on the new highs and updates on the total possible gains since our initial alerts.

Gevo, Inc. GEVO - On Monday, we caught GEVO at a low of 4.42 and saw it explode from more than 300% in gain in a single session. Yesterday the trend continued as the stock traded in a daily range from 16.17-24.74. That represented an intraday move of 53% and the new high put our total observed two-day swing at an incredible 460%

_______

Canada Goose Holdings Inc. GOOS – After successfully calling a slew of winning options ideas in GOOS last week, yesterday we mentioned that the move in the stock itself was notable. Our observed low on GOOS from Friday was 53.18 and yesterday the stock reached a new high of 67.74. That’s a three day swing of 27%, which for a $50+ stock, is nothing short of incredible.


Winnebago Industries, Inc. WGO - Fresh Options Idea

We’re always on the lookout for fresh earnings beats to form options ideas from, and despite not currently being in the heart of an earnings season, we did take notice of Winnebago’s impressive beat. We’ll radar the WGO Weekly $43-46 Calls to coincide with the present activity.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AUPH Update, Options & More

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AUPH

We’ve been tracking AUPH in the roughly seven weeks since our mention of it on January 27th, and for a stock that started out at lows of 2.95 subsequent to that report, it sure has been quite a ride.

We followed it all the way to a high of 10.54 last week, which was an increase of 257% over our observed low. As is expected when a stock sees such a sharp rise in such a short period, AUPH did begin to consolidate, but that was only in preparation of another nice swing. From 7.51, where it ultimately found support, AUPH went on to reach 9.83 yesterday, which marks a 31% upswing on the rebound.

It’s the volatility in AUPH, which has been terrific for a stock in its price range, that makes it such an interesting stock to watch, and we’ll continue to have it on our radars moving forward.


Fresh Options Ideas  - We’ve got a trio of options ideas this morning that are earnings-related. Solid earnings generally give stocks a sizable enough boost to provide great opportunities in the options chain. It’s a phenomenon we’ve observed time and time again, so here’s what’s hitting our scanner this time:

FedEx Corp. FDX- While FDX didn’t meet the expectations of Wall Street on its earnings yesterday post-market, very optimistic guidance from the CEO in which he stated “margins, cash flows and returns are going to increase over the next several years” has the stock gapping up this morning to the tune of 5% We’re going to be standing at the ready with the FDX Weekly $192.50-200 Calls to try to take advantage of the immediate reaction.
_____

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR - We’ve had a ton of success with trading PBR options in the past, and are going to revisitWe are going to signal a range of short and longer-term options for PBR, which had a whirlwind release yesterday post-market in which it revealed a profit for 2016 and a cut to debt levels, which also helped to earn it an analyst upgrade from Credit Suisse Group AG. We’ll be looking at the PBR Weekly $9 Calls, as well as the PBR 04/21 $9.50-10.00 Calls.
_____

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Dollar Tree held its earnings call last week, so the reaction isn’t as fresh, but we’re more interested in what this one is going to do over a more extended period. They reported net sales increases of 5% year-over-year, while diluted earnings-per-share spiked over 40% year-over-year. We also like the look of the chart from a technical perspective, currently at a double-bottom on the chart and looking like it’s ripe for a recovery. We’re going to zero in on the DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls.
