Hot Options Runners, Fresh Ideas & More

Friday’s Winning Selections: 

We’re kicking things off this week the same way we always hope to do, which is presenting the excellent gain opportunities that our Friday options ideas afforded ourselves and our readers. As usual, most of our targets yielded excellent intraday gains opportunities.

The winning plays were the AFRM 09/17 $110-120 Calls, the PLAY Weekly $37-39 Calls, and the TIGR 09/17 $12.50-15 Calls, which all fared quite well on the day. We were commenting on the fact that we’re heading into another period of a relatively thin earnings calendar, but we managed to unearthed some multibag runners nonetheless.

The ranges and total possible gains on those plays were as follows:

AFRM 09/17 $110-120 Calls
$110: 3.10-17.50 (+162%)
$115: 2.00-13.50 (+193%)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KATE Recap & More

Kate Spade & Co. KATE – Recap

We closed out yesterday morning’s premarket report with a fresh options idea on KATE just following the company’s earnings report. While revenues were down, a healthy beat on profits led us to cast our lot in with the bulls.

We targeted KATE Weekly $20 and $21 Calls and were not disappointed with the outcome, with both sets of contracts providing ample opportunities for intraday gains.

The $20 Calls stopped just short of recording a double-bag move, running from 1.41 to 2.70, for a 91% rip. The $21s did manage that feat and then some, with a 131% pop from .65 to 1.50.


Fresh Options Ideas

VanEck Vectors Coal ETF (KOL) –  We want to put an extended watch on the coal industry just hours after breaking news of the signing of “Resolution 38”, which nullifies a recently enacted law barring coal miners from dumping project waste material in streams.

It’s a cost-cutting move that could benefit domestic coal producers in the long run, and could create some chances for us in the process. We want to add the KOL 03/17 $13 Calls, and  04/21 $14 Calls to our watchlist in the weeks and months ahead.

Unilever PLC (UL) – Shares of UL spiked this morning on the heels of Unilever rejecting a $140B+ takeover bid. We’re looking to potentially take advantage of the resulting hype with an idea for possible daytrades.

We’re going to be keeping an eye on the UL Weekly $42.50-47.50 Calls for the chance at some quick-strike gain opportunities.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FWDG, STKO & Extended Watchlist

We’d like to welcome all of our new subscribers to our daily reports. You are entering the fray at just the right time, as our picks of late have been extremely formidable. With winners in GOFF (+128%), MYEC (153%), GESI (+195%), and EXMT (667%), it seems everything we look at recently has done very well, and today’s mentions are no different:

FutureWorld Energy, Inc. FWDG

We would like to congratulate anyone that picked up on our watchlist alert of FWDG on Tuesday.  That day, the stock traded in a range from .0013-.004, closing out at .003. Then, yesterday, we saw the price continue to increase, this time trading from  .003-01, and closing at .0073. A move from the low since our initial alert at .0013 to yesterday’s high of a penny represents a massive 669% gain in just two days.

As you can see on this chart, the main areas of resistance appear to be at .01, .02, .025. Following that, there isn’t any resistance until we reach the mid-teens.

Back in 2009, this stock ran from .004 all the way to .16, gaining a whopping 3900%  While past performance is never a guarantee of future results, provided the share structure hasn’t changed much since then, it could be possible to see history repeat itself with FWDG.

Stakool, Inc. STKO

STKO is another stock we’ve been tracking recently, appearing again on yesterday’s extended watchlist. It has been making higher highs and higher lows this week, and yesterday, it traded nearly 5X its 3mo. average volume. The daily range was .0003-.0006, and it was possible to get in and out for 67%, from the day’s low, to the close of .0005___
