Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WMT Options Recap & More

Wal-Mart Stores, inc. WMT – Options Review

We signaled a wide range of options contracts in the Wal Mart chain yesterday, the WMT Weekly $92-96 Calls, and every single one of them produced the opportunity for huge single session gains. It was a post-earnings beat idea, and those have a tendency to work well in our favor.

WMT made a considerable move which allowed for multi-bag gains regardless of which strike price was selected. Those potential profits were as follows:

$92 Calls – Range: 2.55-7.40 – Max Gain: 190%
$92.50 Calls – Range: 2.13-7.15 – Max Gain: 236%
$93 Calls – Range: 1.42-6.58 – Max Gain: 363%
$94 Calls – Range:1.03-5.53 – Max Gain: 437%
$95 Calls – Range: .60-4.50 – Max Gain: 650%
$96 Calls – Range: .23-3.50 – Max Gain: 1421%

It appears as if WMT could keep this train rolling today, so we may look to roll up to the WMT Weekly $98-100 Calls* to stay close to the money.



Fresh Options Ideas:

We also want to put a few contracts from the Foot Locker and Verizon chains on watch today. Footlocker currently has a ripe bottom-play setup happening on the chart, while Verizon is another post-earnings beat idea.

FL Weekly $38-42 Calls*

VZ 01/19 $45-48 Calls

* Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Watch Play & More

Synergy Pharmaceuticals Inc. SGYP – Bottom Watch

We noticed SGYP start to sell off rapidly last week, after a poor earnings report and the pricing of a public offering on the stock with shares being offered at 2.58. Combined with the start of tax-loss selling season, and SGYP has approached extreme oversold territory.

We’ve now begun to take interest in this as a bottom watch play to monitor for a rebound in coming sessions, and it could ultimately be quite a recovery. We’ve got a stock that was trading for nearly seven dollars a share at the beginning of this year, beaten all the way down to new annual lows. If SGYP were to regain even a portion of the ground it’s lost in recent months, it would be worth our time to track it.


Wal-Mart Stores, inc. WMT – Options Idea

Looking at this morning’s premarket earnings calendar, it was WMT that jumped out at us the most, with a solid beat, and heightened guidance propelling the stock to a moderate gap up at the moment.

We’re going to formulate a quick options idea to try to take advantage of the situation. Walmart has been exceptionally bullish for most of this year, and is currently soaring into blue skies, setting a new annual high with every uptick.

We’re going to put the WMT Weekly $92-96 Calls on watch for the remainder of the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Options Success & More

Huge Options Success

We went all-in on the options front on Friday, with both of our primary focal points being high-risk options plays, and the rewards were considerable. Both sets of ideas turned out to be successful, regardless of the strike prices chosen.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA – On Friday morning, we were just patting ourselves on the back for Thursday’s successful alert of the BABA Weekly $162.50-170 Calls which had provided some nice gain opportunities on the order of 119-311% Those figures were nice, but they paled in comparison to Friday’s performances. We did specify that we’d want to “continue to keep our eye on these plays to close out the week, as further increases are a possibility.”

“Further increases” may be the understatement of the year. Explosions would have been a more accurate term! Our highlighted range actually contained an ultra-rare FIFTY-bagger, so anyone who had been following our BABA options coverage had a chance to make a mint!

$244.50 Calls – Range: 2.00 – 6.95   – Max Gain: 247%
$245 Calls – Range: .53-4.41 – Max Gain: 732%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .10-2.18 – Max Gain: 2980%
$246 Calls – Range: .01-.51 – Max Gain: 5000%

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc  WMT – Our other options focus from Friday was for Walmart, with the WMT Weekly $79.50 & $80 Calls. An early run by the stock created the necessary volatility to push our ideas to multi-bag status inside of the first hour.

The $79.50 Calls were the big winner there, running from .19-.86 for an intraday pop of 353% The $80′s weren’t too far behind with a solid push from .15-.46; a gain of 207%


China Information Technology Inc. CNIT

We saw a wave of increased activity in several China-based plays on Friday, and CNIT is one among them that seems worthy for observation as we kick off another trading week this morning.

We like the chart setup- the stock had a really solid run from May to June after which there was a consolidation, and has recently been showing strength off of its established support in the mid-.80′s. There was also a recent bullish breach of the 50DMA.

The company will need to get and keep its shares above $1.00 to satisfy NASDAQ’s minimum bid requirements, and we think there’s a fair chance of that happening.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BABA Review & More

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA – Options Review

We saw the contracts we highlighted yesterday morning in the BABA chain make solid multi-bag moves. The BABA Weekly $162.50-170 Calls were our targets, and each one took off for the following moves starting at around 10AM.

$244.50 Calls – Range: 2.58-5.65 – Max Gain: 119%
$245 Calls – Range: 1.26-3.50 – Max Gain: 171%
$245.50 Calls – Range: .52-1.79 – Max Gain: 244%
$246 Calls – Range: .18-.74 – Max Gain: 311%

We also want to continue to keep our eye on these plays to close out the week*, as further increases are a possibility. While BABA’s PPS tapered back into the close, we’re seeing yet another gap up in the premarket this morning.


Wal-Mart Stores, Inc  WMT

Despite seeing a pullback following its earnings report yesterday, WMT rebounded off of support and managed to close near its high of day and is up slightly in early trading this morning.

There may be an opportunity in the WMT Weekly $79.50 & $80 Calls* so we’ll have those on our radars as we wrap up another trading week.

*We don’t include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers every single time. Trading weekly options at the end of the week is an exceedingly risky proposition that should never be attempted by beginning or novice traders!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: The Incredible Run of OWCP & More

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

Our primary order of business this morning is to do a nice recap of what is perhaps the most profit-potential-packed pick in the long history of our newsletter’s existence! We’ve had percentage gainers of 5,000, 10,000 with relative regularity- and even the occasional 20,000 percenter- but nothing even approaching the move we’ve witnessed since tagging OWCP as a bottom play this fall, in our premarket report from September 29th.

The climb from the .0036 low we observed that morning would have been difficult to fathom at the time, but over the next four months, it has gone on to impress in a monumental way. Despite slight consolidations along the way, OWCP has persisted through multiple patches of resistance in arriving at yesterday’s new high of 2.10, marking a ridiculous overall run of 57,956%

Considering the fantastic bullish close the stock had yesterday, we wouldn’t even be surprised to see our unreal observed range extended even further over coming sessions.


Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Update

In yesterday’s premarket report, we updated readers on our WMT options idea from January 31st. We were looking for an extended-term rebound when we signaled the WMT 03/03 $68-$69.50 Calls, and that’s exactly what we’ve gotten.

Leading into yesterday’s session we touted the excellent gain opportunities we had seen to that point in our selected contracts, which ranged from 166-246% We also made it a point to caution that with the way the stock was behaving in the premarket, we expected to see those ranges extended in a significant manner.

As you can see from updated figures below, the overall ranges on our observed plays were more than doubled with yesterday’s activity:

$68 Calls – Range: .86-4.20 – Max Gain: 388%
$68.50 Calls – Range: .57-3.75 – Max Gain: 558%
$69 Calls – Range: .48-3.25 – Max Gain: 577%
$69.50 Calls – Range: .41-2.75 – Max Gain: 570%
