Blue Horseshoe Stocks: The Incredible Run of OWCP & More

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

Our primary order of business this morning is to do a nice recap of what is perhaps the most profit-potential-packed pick in the long history of our newsletter’s existence! We’ve had percentage gainers of 5,000, 10,000 with relative regularity- and even the occasional 20,000 percenter- but nothing even approaching the move we’ve witnessed since tagging OWCP as a bottom play this fall, in our premarket report from September 29th.

The climb from the .0036 low we observed that morning would have been difficult to fathom at the time, but over the next four months, it has gone on to impress in a monumental way. Despite slight consolidations along the way, OWCP has persisted through multiple patches of resistance in arriving at yesterday’s new high of 2.10, marking a ridiculous overall run of 57,956%

Considering the fantastic bullish close the stock had yesterday, we wouldn’t even be surprised to see our unreal observed range extended even further over coming sessions.


Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Update

In yesterday’s premarket report, we updated readers on our WMT options idea from January 31st. We were looking for an extended-term rebound when we signaled the WMT 03/03 $68-$69.50 Calls, and that’s exactly what we’ve gotten.

Leading into yesterday’s session we touted the excellent gain opportunities we had seen to that point in our selected contracts, which ranged from 166-246% We also made it a point to caution that with the way the stock was behaving in the premarket, we expected to see those ranges extended in a significant manner.

As you can see from updated figures below, the overall ranges on our observed plays were more than doubled with yesterday’s activity:

$68 Calls – Range: .86-4.20 – Max Gain: 388%
$68.50 Calls – Range: .57-3.75 – Max Gain: 558%
$69 Calls – Range: .48-3.25 – Max Gain: 577%
$69.50 Calls – Range: .41-2.75 – Max Gain: 570%

Kate Spade & Co. KATE – Recap

We began tracking a set of options ideas for Kate Spade in Thursday morning’s premarket report, targeting the KATE Weekly $20 and $21 Calls in the wake of earnings, despite the retail market as a whole being a bit shaky of late. We observed them at lows of 1.41 and .65, respectively.

We then updated our readers as to the excellent gains made by those contracts on Friday, but the party wasn’t over yet. New highs were reached in both cases, with the $20 Calls shooting as high as 3.65 marking a two-session swing of 159% and the $21 Calls topping out at 2.37, a two-day rip of 264%


Unilever PLC (UL)

New for Friday’s morning report was our idea on Unilever following its own earning  report. We caught the stock exhibiting some bullish premarket activity, and came forward to highlight the UL Weekly $42.50-47.50 Calls for potential daytrades.

We were spot on in targeting that range of contracts, as they all provided ample opportunities for intraday profits, including a chance at a massive windfall with the $47.50′s:

$42.50 Calls – Range: 3.80-6.18 – Max Gain: 63%
$45 Calls – Range: 1.40-3.60 – Max Gain: 157%
$47.50 Calls – Range: .05-1.33 – Max Gain: 2560%



Other Updates From Friday

VNUE, Inc. VNUE - We tagged VNUE in Friday morning’s extended watchlist, and it ultimately ended up being our top pick of the day on the stock side of things.

Starting out from a low of .0015, this subpenny streaker broke out to a subsequent high of .0033, marking a 120% rip on roughly three times the monthly average volume. We’ll want to keep an eye skinned for the possibility of further action, as VNUE ended up closing at its high of day.
______

Franchise Holding International, Inc. FNHI – Also performing notably was FNHI, which made more modest, yet still solid intraday moves. It started out with an early pop from .017-.0269, a 58% uptick, before pulling back to .019 and returning to .025. That added a 32% gain to the daily cumulative total.


Petrogas Co. PTCO – Potential Bottom-Play

We’ve pointed out on the chart below why we think that PTCO could be primed for a bottom-bounce breakout at any minute. The stock is currently looking oversold, with the price rebounding off of a previous support area, over just the last two trading days.

We’re going to want to watch this one like a hawk, as the technical seem to indicate a major run could occur in the very near future.


Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Update

Lastly, we want to rehash a longer-term options idea we formulated for WMT back on January 31st. We noticed the stock rebounding off recent lows at the time, and signaled the WMT 03/03 $68-$69.50 Calls. It has been almost nothing but bullish activity on the chart since then, and those ideas have panned out quite nicely.

$68 Calls
– Range: .86-2.29 – Max Gain: 166%
$68.50 Calls – Range: .57-2.02 – Max Gain: 254%
$69 Calls – Range: .48-1.80 – Max Gain: 275%
$69.50 Calls – Range: .41-1.42 – Max Gain: 246%

Additionally, WMT is gapping up hard this morning in premarket trading, so we want to stay laser focused on these ideas, as our observed ranges are almost certain to see increases as a result. In fact, the WMT PPS is so high at this point, we’ll be looking to roll up to the range of $72-73 Calls if the bonanza on the WMT chart continues.

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: WFM Followup, ZSAN & More

Whole Foods Market, Inc. WFM – Options Update

Our primary focus for yesterday morning’s premarket report was our running options idea from last week. We were mentioning that the WFM 02/17 $30 and 30.50 Calls had begun to heat up, and we didn’t want to miss out on the activity that seemed ready to kick our idea into effect.

Our assumptions turned out to be accurate, with WFM stringing on another good session performance. The $30 Calls traded up from a low of .54 to .90 (+66%), while the $30.50′s made their way from .20-.42 (+110%).

We also mentioned that a break of the 50DMA at 30.76 for WFM would prompt us to look at contracts with a higher strike price and later expiration, the WFM 02/24 $31 Calls. We did indeed witness a breach of that price point toward the end of the session, and those calls came into play as well, running from 20-.35 for a chance at a nice 75% gain.

Should the solid uptrend WFM has been putting together continue into future sessions, these could be an ongoing item of interest for us.


Zosano Pharma Corp. ZSAN

ZSAN is a play we highlighted on Monday after the company reported that in its ZOTRIP pivotal efficacy study, its M207 transdermal migraine therapy patch met both primary, as well as secondary endpoints.

We mentioned that not only were we going to experience the effect of positive study data, but a technically ripening chart as well, leading us to put the stock on high alert in coming sessions.

It was a good decision, as the stock has really gained momentum this week, putting together some solid sessions. In fact, yesterday the stock closed as the NASDAQ’s top gainer of the day. We’ve watched as ZSAN has traded up from a low of 1.65 to yesterday’s new high of 3.49, representing an intraweek upswing of 112% Cheers to those of our readers who came along for the ride!



Opko Health, Inc. OPK

We put OPK on bottom watch earlier this month, and after a few sessions of further consolidation, the past four trading days have shown some convincing bottom-bounce action.

The stock ultimately found support at the 7.99-level last week, from which it has logged five straight sessions of higher highs and higher lows, reaching 8.66 yesterday. While that action only equates to an 8% increase, it’s the massive gap on the chart to the upside from just under $10 to just over $11.50. We’ll look for the stock to continue to build gradually and maintain the current trend in hopes of seeing a run toward a gap-fill.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Update, GALT Recap & More

Whole Foods Market, Inc. WFM – Options Update

We just wanted to circle back for our WFM options idea that we submitted last week. We designated contracts with a 02/17 expiration instead of weeklies to give our idea time to develop and it ended up being a good call. Our targets were the WFM 02/17 $30 and 30.50 Calls.

Yesterday WFM had a morning pullback which was followed by a nice reversal, and the stock ended up bulling its way into the close near its high of day. The calls we signaled last week had a significant move as a result. The $30 Calls ran from .14-.52 (+271%), while the $30.50′s exploded from .05-.21 (+320%). We are going to want to keep them on our radar for the rest of the week into expiration.

Key resistance is at the 200DMA and 50DMA of 30.38 and 30.76, respectively. If WFM can crack the latter, we may look to roll our strike price up and push out another week to contracts expiring next Friday- particularly, the WFM 02/24 $31 Calls.



Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We’ve now witnessed quite a run from GALT over the past few weeks, validating our previous reports on the stock wherein we contested that a serious run-up appeared likely.

It began with our report on 01/12, in which we noted GALT’s ripening chart, and surmised that forthcoming gains of 100% were not out of the question. We observed a low of .935 subsequent to that followed by a nice 38% push to 1.29 leading into our most recent report on GALT last Friday.

In that report we had this to say “We feel these gains are sustainable if GALT can manage to crack past the current 200DMA at 1.32. As you can see on the included snapshot, the chart continues to bear the look of potential for even further increases“.

Yesterday GALT met those expectations nicely with a run to a new high of 1.85, which marks an overall increase from our observed low of 98%, falling just a hair shy of our initial speculations. Yet, our prediction seems to be coming full circle this morning as the stock is gearing up to fill its gap on the chart that we pointed out in our initial report. One more bullish push will get us into double-bagger territory for this idea, and the stock may well make a run well into the 2.00-range.


Green EnviroTech Holdings Corp. GETH – Recap

We were quite pleased with the performance of GETH following our featured report yesterday morning, as the stock provided traders with a pair of solid intraday swings amid an onslaught of volume.

Right from the opening bell, GETH shot up from .165 to the high of day at .235, marking an initial rip of 42% The stock subsequently pulled back to a daily low at .1514, before surging up once more to .215, matching the morning’s 42% gain exactly.

All of this useful volatility was accompanied by massive volume on the order of 39X the monthly average, or 19X the 3-month average. It represented an all-time record high for shares of GETH traded in a single session!

Yesterday we had identified .15 as the key support level that needed to hold in order to make GETH interesting, and our sentiments in that regard haven’t changed.
