Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success & More

Options Success

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options  -We signaled a range of options contracts on NFLX in yesterday’s premarket report, citing the earnings beat of the previous afternoon. We specifically mentioned that we were looking out for a dip-and-rip formation on the chart and the stock produced a classic example of such. NFLX’s big day, which ultimately facilitated those multi-bag profit opportunities, was fueled by an impressive 5 million new subscribers to the Netflix streaming service.

Right out of the gate, it dipped briefly to the high $175 area before going on an hours-long bullish push to the upper $184′s. That activity led to some really nice gains in our highlighted options, the NFLX Weekly $172.50-180 Calls:

$172.50 Calls – Range: 3.80-12.75 – Max Gain: 236%
$175 Calls – Range: 2.50-10.50 – Max Gain: 320%
$177.50 Calls – Range: 1.40-8.30– Max Gain: 493%
$180 Calls – Range: .85-6.42 – Max Gain: 655%

Nutanix, Inc. NTNX – We also want to circle back to recap the moves made by an options idea we included in Friday morning’s report. NTNX continued to climb yesterday, and so the NTNX 7/21 $20-25 Calls we signaled have turned up some really nice moves.

$20 Calls – Range: 1.65-3.90 – Max Gain: 136%
$22.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.56 – Max Gain: 290%
$25 Calls – Range: .05-.28 – Max Gain: 460%


Yesterday’s Movers

We also had a number of the stocks that we highlighted in yesterday’s report yield chances for solid gains, and of them gave us a reason to look out for further moves:

Caprico Therapeutics, Inc. CAPR - The biggest gainer of the day from our mentions and on the NASDAQ itself, CAPR traded in a range from a low of .901, on up to a high of 1.62. That worked out to an 80% rip, and it came on an incredible 291X the monthly average volume.

The huge session was catalyzed by the announcement that the FDA has granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to CAP-1002, Capricor’s development candidate for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. (>>View PR)
_________

Marijuana Company of America, Inc. MCOA - There was a nice move in MCOA as the stock traded up 38% from .02685-.037 on close to five times its monthly average volume, and the table may be set for a continuation of the trend with a new PR hitting the wires this morning.

The company is reporting that it has received the first round of funding for a joint venture to construct a 30,000 sq. ft. greenhouse grow facility in Oroville, Washington. Once completed, the greenhouse facility will accommodate a cannabis production and processing tenant with a Tier 3, I-502 license… (>>View PR)
_________

Novavax Inc. NVAX - This one recorded a very respectable gain on the day, running steadily from 1.17 up to 1.53, a 31% upswing. More importantly, the stock maintained the vast majority of its daily advance into the close, so we’ll want to continue to track NVAX as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BMXI Recap & More

Brookmount Explorations Inc. BMXI

Having written our daily newsletters for such a long time, occasionally we run back across a stock that we haven’t seen in quite some time, and that was the case with BMXI. Before yesterday’s signal on it, we hadn’t mentioned it since May of 2012 back when it was regularly trading in the subpenny range.

It found its way to our radar screens and into our premarket report yesterday morning on word of a promotion (Disclosure: We were not involved in the deal), and what followed was one of the biggest breakouts the stock has ever had. From a low of .0831 it soared to a new all-time high of .1279 . That’s an intraday gain of 54% which came on enormous volume.


Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL – Options Idea

Our regular followers know that we’re always on the lookout to take advantage of the hype-fueled moves that stocks tend to make following an earnings report, using their options chains. Delta whiffed on profits this quarter, falling well short of expectations on the Street, and despite issuing solid guidance for Q3, we want to signal a range of short-term puts to watch into the end of the week.

DAL stock was already at a top, and in a price range where profit-takers could be a factor as well. For that reason, we are going to radar the DAL Weekly $55.50-53.50 Puts.


OncBioMune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. OBMP

OBMP had an update that it issued this morning on its mid-stage cancer treatment (>>View PR), but our interest is really being drawn to this play for technical reasons.

As you can see below, the stock recently established a new annual low, followed by a rebound off of that low, and now it is making its way back down to find support. We will be interested in this as a potential rebound play in the event that the stock maintains support at or above a nickel. We’re presently looking at an impending bearish cross on the MACD so we’ll see if the stock can hang in there without losing more than a penny off of its current PPS.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNDX Recap, Options & More

Syndax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. SNDX

Despite the markets getting crushed yesterday we managed to find and tag in our premarket report, what would ultimately be the NASDAQ’s top gainer of the day. SNDX had been gradually coming up off a bottom in the few sessions prior, but yesterday things really kicked into gear.

It traded in a range from 10.76 to 15.335, a fantastic intraday move of 43% which is really impressive for a $10+ stock. That move inside of the first 90 minutes of the session. That was followed by a dip-and-rip pattern from 12.16 and back to 13.62; a 12% rebound into a strong close at 13.58

The stock traded 56x its 30-day average volume yesterday, and held more than half of its daily advance, so we’ll be treating this as a potential momentum play as we head into week’s end, looking out for higher highs and higher lows out of SNDX.


Fresh Options Ideas

Speaking of the markets getting crushed, it appears as if we may see a continuation of that pattern today, so we want to have a few sets of options ideas to fall back on in the event of a continued slide.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – BABA had been on an incredible bullish run for the better of part of 2017 thus far as you can plainly see on the chart snapshot we’ve included here. You can also see that the strength index is sharply declining after having recently been indicating the stock was extremely overbought.  We can also see the MACD pinching toward a bearish cross.

That’s why, along with an earnings miss in the premarket and the overall current of the markets as a whole, we’re looking at the BABA Weekly $120-117 Puts for potential quick-strike swing trades.


____

SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY)  – Also in the vein of our general bearish view of today’s overall conditions, we want to line up a set of SPY Puts for observation. Our regular readers know that the SPY is one of our favorite market analogs, and has been a wellspring of gains for us on the options front when we correctly gauge investor sentiment.

Today we want to put the SPY Weekly $237-235 Puts on watch, as a sustained tumultuous period for stocks would likely produce some good chances for us there.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BIg Day for WB & More

Weibo Corp. WB – Options Recap

We decided to track WB on the heels of its earnings beat yesterday and formulated a range of call contracts that we thought would see some nice activity as a result. Post-earnings options ideas are among our favorite types of plays, and WB serves as another example of why we’re always coming back to that well.

We signaled the WB Weekly $67.50-70 Calls, and with the exception of the $68.50′s and $69′s which didn’t trade a lot of volume, we saw some killer single-session moves from the other four contracts in our highlighted range:

$67.50 Calls – Range: .70-10.78 – Max Gain: 1440%
$68 Calls – Range: 4.40-10.80 – Max Gain: 145%
$69.50 Calls – Range: 1.50-7.80 – Max Gain: 420%
$70 Calls – Range: 1.30-8.90 – Max Gain: 584%

Target Corp. TGT – Fresh Idea

Weibo was our fresh idea for yesterday, and today we’ve got another set of ideas to enter into the mix today with TGT.

Based purely on the look of the chart, this morning’s earnings notwithstanding, we’re attracted to the massive gap to fill to the upside, part of which has begun to fill as TGT is gapping up in the premarket.

We’re interested to follow progress on a range of both short and longer-term ideas, namely the TGT Weekly $57-59 Calls, as well as the TGT 06/23 $60-62 Calls. .


xG Technology , Inc. XGTI

We tagged XGTI for observation yesterday morning, and the stock did make a modest move of 24%, trading up from a low of 1.72 to 2.14 on the day.

While not an eye-popping move in and of itself, it did occur on massive volume, on the order of roughly 70X the 30-day average, and this morning in the premarket the stock has hit a new high of 2.19. We’ll definitely be on the lookout for a continuation of the momentum that is built up in this stock.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP Review, New Ideas

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Update

We correctly called the bounce on SNAP in our premarket report on Friday and signaled a couple of contracts for observation, the SNAP 6/16 $18 & 19 Calls.

After those made intraday moves of 69% and 93% respectively to close out the week, we rehashed them in yesterday’s report along with mentioning that rolling up to the $20-level was something to consider, given the activity we were observing.

Not only did the $18′s and $19′s extend their gains, but the $20′s got in on the fun as well:

06/16 $18 Calls – Intraday Range: 2.00-3.10 (+55%) – 2-Day Swing: 163%
06/16 $19 Calls – Intraday Range: 1.38-2.34 (+70%)  – 2-Day Swing: 212%
06/16 $20 Calls - Intraday Range: .85-1.65 – Max Gain: 94%

With SNAP gapping up in the premarket once again, we expect to see these ranges extended even further today. Cheers to anyone who grabbed a piece of the action!

Weibo Corp. WB – Fresh Idea

To try to continue along with our options success, we’re looking at the Chinese social media network Weibo and its earnings beat this morning.

The stock has already been breaking out and it appears as if today’s earnings figures could propel it to even more gains over the short term, so we’re going to be looking at the WB Weekly $67.50-70 Calls.


Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. LEXG

It was only yesterday morning in our premarket report that we were encouraging our readers to get involved with our daily in-session trader’s chatroom*. Sure enough, more proof of why we periodically remind our subscribers of these daily Skype chats came to us in the form of LEXG.

As you can see from the screen snap below, it was just after 10am when we alerted our members to movement in the stock, and it subsequently ran from .0009 to .002, which represents an intraday rip of 122%

We always find winners to put here in our premarket reports, but to catch even more opportunities on the fly as they come up after the open, our trader’s chats are the way to go.

*Do you subscribe to our mailing list? If so, you’re eligible to participate and/or observe our daily trader’s chats via Skype. Simply send a contact request to username ‘stocksumo’ and we’ll take care of the rest.
