Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DPW Recap & More

Digital Power Corp. DPW

We began to track DPW in Monday’s premarket report, and with the help of a key Bitcoin related PR, the stock has performed quite well since then. We suggested that Monday’s bullish activity could be followed up with more of the same in yesterday’s report, and that’s certainly what occurred.

DPW traded in a daily range from an early low of 2.70, all the way up to an afternoon high of 4.27, marking an intraday burst of 58%   As measured from our observed low of 2.15 on Monday, that high represented a two-day swing of 97%

We will once again track this play very closely, with Bitcoin streaking to new all time highs yet again, touching $12,798.78 shortly after 8AM Eastern this morning. The company just released plans to launch a line of Bitcoin mining hardware, and anything related related to the space should continue to be a hot ticket item amid the current crypto-craze.



American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO

We’ve come to rely on going after big options trading opportunities, especially after a company releases its earnings. Despite having fallen short of Q3 expectations for profits and revenue, AEO posted solid same store sales growth, and issued promising guidance.

As a result, the stock has continued its recent bullish run, and we’re going to want to signal the AEO Weekly $16.50-17.50 Calls for observation over the remainder of the week.


Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. TTNP

We’re going to place TTNP on watch this morning as a potential bottom play. One look at the chart snapshot below clearly shows that the stock is currently exhibiting a strong double bottom signal. We can also see the nearly 100% move it recorded in recent months. We’ll be looking for similar activity in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup & More

Options Roundup

We produced three sets of options ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and considering our recent track record with options plays, it should come as no surprise that we hit on some big gainers with all of them.

Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR

We’ve successfully come up with winning options ideas for PBR on so many occasions, we’ve lost count at this point. Our targeted contracts yesterday were the Weekly $5 and $5.50 Calls, and both sets recorded solid moves on the day.

For the $5′s we saw a nice run from .42-.77, an intraday swing of 83%, while the $5.50 Calls doubled that performance with a 166% pop from .12-.32. 

We mentioned that the idea could serve for swing trades into today, and it appears as if PBR’s gap up will extend the gains we’ve seen thus far, especially considering that oil is presently at its highest price in months. In addition to staying on top of those 5.50′s, we’ll explore the possibility of rolling up our strike price to the 6.00-level. We’ll just need to see the stock hold support at its previous resistance point of 5.72 on any early pullbacks.

United Parcel Service, Inc. UPS

The next idea we came up with was to take a look at UPS April 8th $104 Calls, which we found attractive for a number of reasons that we listed in our report, and those contracts put up a top-notch performance as well.

They started out from a low of .47 and would end up hitting a daily high of 1.50; gains of up to 219% were there for the taking.

SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc. SEAS

We were very interested in Seaworld’s PR concerning the halting of the Killer Whale breeding programs and theater show phase-out yesterday(>>View PR). The announcement was received well by the investing community, as well as the company seeing goodwill on social media for doing the right thing- at one point on Twitter, #Seaworld was trending in the Top 3 for the US in the wake of the news.

We set our sights on SEAS April 15th $18 Calls, and were met with an excellent intraday gain opportunity as they ran 150% from .40-1.00.


Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. SRCO

We also want to give ourselves a pat on the back for SRCO, which we included in yesterday’s extended watchlist. The stock made a respectable intraday move for us, to the tune of 60% as it traded in a range from .003-.0048 on roughly six times the 3-month average volume.


Bank of America Corp. BAC – Fresh Options Idea

BAC is currently gapping up in the premarket on news that the company will be increasing the scope of their share buyback program, and we’re going to signal a set of options contracts for observation to correspond with that. We’re going to be taking a look at BAC Weekly $13.50 Calls for a possible daytrade*.

*Don’t forget, trading weekly options contracts on a Friday is a very risky proposition, and is recommended for seasoned traders only.
