Weatherford International plc  WFTIQ

Also catching our eye today, thanks to our longtime reader Mark, is a news release by an OTC company which has just scored a huge contract with PBR (Petrobras), a stock that we have an extensive history covering. It is Brazil’s state run oil conglomerate, and the deal represents the biggest score for WFTIQ to date.

We’ll include a clip of, and link to, the PR below, and what we’re looking at for the stock is the potential for some rapid near-term gains as a response to the big news.

BAAR, Switzerland, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Weatherford International plc (OTC-PINK: WFTIQ) (the “Company” or “Weatherford”), announced the signing of an $87 million contract for fishing and intervention services with Petrolio Brasileiro S.A., which is more commonly known as Brazilian-based multinational corporation Petrobras. The four-year agreement represents the largest fishing contract ever signed by Weatherford. It also constitutes the largest single global award for this scope in the recent past. (>>View Full PR)


FuelCell Energy, Inc. FCEL 

FCEL is a play we’ve also been familiar with in the past, and we tagged in yesterday morning’s premarket watchlist after the company’s big Q3 revenue beat on Friday.

It was a solid choice, with the stock making a nice move on day for us. FCEL traded in a range from .48-.64, marking a move of 33% We’ll be interested to see if it can build off of that momentum and continue to rise up off of its recent relative lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bearish Options Ideas

AutoDesk Inc. ADSK 

With things looking choppy for the markets this morning, we are going to turn to a bearish idea for ADSK despite the company’s beat on Q2 earnings yesterday after market hours. The stock began to crumble under the weight of ADSK’s weak Q3 guidance. The poor outlook given, combined with the flow of market tides, could be just the thing for bearish options contracts, namely the ADSK Weekly $135-132 Puts.

There are those of the belief that ADSK stock was already valued too high leading into yesterday’s report, which is why we feel confident choosing to go short at the present time.

TIF Weekly $82-79 Puts 


The Buckle, Inc. BKE – Update

We would also like to update readers on another recent idea we floated. On Friday morning, we selected the BKE 09/20 $17.50-20 Calls for a longer-term options idea, and already it has borne fruit just a few sessions later.

The $17.50 Calls have run from a low of .95 and reached 2.31, marking a gain of 143%  Meanwhile the $20’s have soared by an even higher margin, trading in a range from .20 up to .72, which works out to a 260% run.
