Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APHA, MDCA & More

Aphria, Inc. APHA

Yesterday morning in our premarket report, we said that the unusually high short interest in APHA was one of the factors playing into our decision to designate it as a bottom-watch play. The rebound we were looking for came instantaneously for us with APHA heating up, and the short squeeze was on.

From a low of 3.75, the stock cruised on up to a high of 5.59 for a daily burst amounting to 49% on considerable volume. We’ll be looking for APHA to continue to make up some of the ground it has lost over the past month.



MDC Partners, Inc. MDCA

Another stock we included as a bottom play yesterday, MDCA also experienced a solid performance on the day. It traded from a low of 2.57 on up to 3.29, for a moderate but respectable 28% gain.

It also factored in as the NASDAQ’s fourth largest gainer of the session. The run came to an end right around an area of previous resistance, so we’ll look for it to break that top in the sessions ahead.

Aphria, Inc. APHA

We’ve had an eye on Aphria, and indeed the whole Canadian cannabis market, for years.  Having previously been traded under the symbol APHQF on the OTC Markets, the Canadian cannabis company now trades on the NYSE and bills itself as a drug manufacturer in the healthcare industry.

As a result of allegations against the company, the stock has taken a severe beating in recent sessions. We’re going to begin to observe more closely as a potential bottom bounce play in the days and weeks ahead, as it has reached the point of being heavily oversold with a huge short interest. We’ll want to be hanging around when the shorts start to get squeezed.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Zillow on a Roll

Zillow Group, Inc. Z – Update

We’ve been tracking Zillow since last Wednesday, at which time the stock was trading at a low of 27.92. We were prompted to highlight the play after noticing some big Form-4 submissions near the bottom, with a large gap to the upside on the chart. That morning we signaled the Z 01/18 $30-40 Calls which have produced some really nice gains so far.

The stock itself, after 6 consecutive green days, attained a high of 37.20 yesterday, which marked a 33% increase in just over a week’s time. That’s fantastic volatility for a stock in this price range. That activity has led to some mind-numbing gains in our group of tracked contracts. 

The following figures are the ranges  and total possible gains on those from last Wednesday, through yesterday’s highs:

$30 Calls – Range: 1.57-7.43 - Max Gain: 373%
$35 Calls – Range: .57-3.70 – Max Gain: 549%
$40 Calls – Range: .10-1.45 - Max Gain: 1350%


Bottom Watchlist

We also have a couple of longer-term bottom watch plays that we wanted to include in today’s report and monitor for potential rebounds going forward.

We are looking at both Bio-Path Holdings (BPTH) and Ampio Pharmaceitucals (AMPE) in a similar fashion today. Neither stock has shown a great deal of volatility of late, hovering around their recent relative lows for some time. Both charts also boast gaps to the upside. We’ll place this pair on recovery watch in the weeks ahead.
