Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBY Options, XTRN Recap & More

Las Vegas Railway Express XTRN - Update

As we were just mentioning yesterday, a member of our daily live trader’s chat* allowed participants to snag gains of up to 300% on Tuesday as XTRN ran from .0003-.0012.

We also noted the immense volume flowing through the stock, along with a bullish close and suggested that a continuation of momentum was possible. Sure enough XTRN followed up one strong session with another, trading in an intraday range from a low of .001 and reaching as high as .0027, which works out to an intraday run of 260%

That is certainly a premium single-session gain opportunity that was available to all of our subscribers, but chatroom members* could have had a shot at the full two-day swing, which comes out to an incredible 800%

XTRN received an offer to be bought out and merge with XREE, another ‘X-Train’ company that runs scenic train tours, so we’ll be interested to see how that situation plays out.

Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We’ve been watching HMNY for awhile now, and tagged the stock in yesterday morning’s premarket report. While it didn’t exactly go to the moon, we were quite pleased with the solid performance it put forth on the day.

It coincided with the company’s announcement that it had obtained licensing rights to a facial recognition technology developed in Israel. The stock traded up from a low of 3.65 to as high as 4.90, which marks a move of 34% and it came on an incredible 285X the 30-day average volume.

That kind of surge in liquidity is sure to produce some interesting results that we will be eager to track as we head through midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap, Cannabis Play & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

Despite market-wide turmoil over Britain’s “Brexit” vote, we saw fit to target a range of SPY options for observation in Friday morning’s premarket report. Our highlighted contracts were the SPY Weekly $200-205 Calls and with the exception of the lower denominations, which were were too far into the money to see any solid gain opportunities, they worked out quite well.

Some intraday volatility was the primary element which allowed quick-fingered traders to reap instant rewards from all but two of the contracts in the $205-202 Put-range. The potential gains were as follows:

$205 Puts – Trading Range:  .77-2.43 – Max Gain: 215%
$204 Puts* – Trading Range: 1.20-3.05 – Max Gain: 154%

*Contracts labeled with an asterisk also saw a late day run of OVER 200% EACH, in addition to the initial moves listed above!


New Columbia Resources, Inc. NEWC

Today we’re circling back around to a play we have tracked in the past. Things have been mostly quiet for NEWC this year, with the exception of a massive run from the .007-range up as a high as a nickel. Since that time, leading up to last week, the stock had been under consistent consolidation. Tuesday, it began to experience a bounce that once again has our interest focused upon this cannabis-related play.

Due to the apparent impending end of over five decades of internal hostilities in Columbia, the company has commented on a bolstered outlook for its projects (both cannabis and mining) in the South American nation. Should the resolution be ratified in an upcoming referendum, it could mean good things for the future of NEWC, and accordingly, its stock.
