Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AVEO Recap, Options Ideas & More

AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AVEO

We’ve tracked AVEO in our reports from Wednesday and yesterday to what has turned out to be a strong intraweek swing. From Wednesday’s low of 1.50, the stock surged to a new 52-week high of 3.50 early in yesterday’s session, during which it traded more than thirty times its 3-month average.

It marked a two-day move of 133% which began when the company released favorable drug trial results on Wednesday. Strangely, the PR (View It Here) seemed to go largely unnoticed by the investment community until yesterday. Despite that fact, we showed up early to the party, and had a heck of time watching others catch on, producing yesterday’s annual high-setting push.

After consolidating into the close, AVEO appears to be gapping up slightly this morning, so we’ll stay tuned to the price action as the session unfolds.


Holiday Island Holdings, Inc. HIHI

We played HIHI like a fiddle this week; it’s yet another example of us providing our readers with advanced notice on prime-time chances to profit.

We alerted folks to the situation in our premarket report on Wednesday, at which time the stock was trading at a low of .0015. Word of a massive share reduction via purchase and return to treasury hit the newswires early, providing us with all the incentive we needed to include it in our daily interests. HIHI proceeded to run more than 70% over the course of that afternoon.

Then yesterday, we caught wind of a promotion on the stock with which we had no involvement, and it prompted us to remain focused on HIHI. We mentioned that the promo might produce “an impeccably-timed boost to extend our profits as we look to take them off the table” and it worked like a charm. The stock ended up touching a new high of .003, marking a two-session swing of exactly 100%.


Morning Gapper Watchlist
While a Friday preceding a holiday weekend is usually a relatively subdued affair, there are a couple of items hitting our scanner that we’ll be monitoring for opportunities.  Each of the following is gapping up in the premarket:

Emerald Oil, Inc. EOX
We drew up a chart to illustrate the situation on EOX. The stock was kicked hard during yesterday’s session so we’ll be on alert for some rebound action today.

Oncothyreon, Inc. ONTY
ONTY is the other gapper that will retain a portion of our of our focus this morning.


Quick Options Trading Ideas:

 Apple, Inc. AAPL has been on a wicked run all week, so we’ll watch for a dip-and-rip scenario; the $131 and $132 Weekly Calls should be in play today.

For Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR, we’re going to zero in on $9.00 & $9.50 Weekly Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recap of Yesterday’s Huge Session

Our first order of business today will be to go over the wealth of premium gain opportunities contained in yesterday’s premarket report. We had not one, but three of our selections make major moves, not to mention a couple of other modest gainers.

Prima BioMed, Ltd. PBMD

Quickly shooting to the top of our watchlist was PBMD. Its performance was exhilarating to behold as the stock went on an absolute tear from a low of 2.08 on up to 6.48. It marked an epic intraday run which produced total possible gains on the order of 211%

The move occurred on monstrous volume to the tune of nearly 62X the 3-month average, and stemmed largely from some positive results on one of the company’s trial drugs, announced Tuesday. >> READ PR

With the kind of momentum we’ve witnessed building up in just a single session from PBMD, we’re very interested to continue to follow the price action. A significant dip-and-rip scenario could soon present itself.


IsoRay, Inc. ISR

We also tagged ISR in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and it too shot up rapidly with the help of optimistic results from one of its own drug trials. From an early low of 1.86, the stock ran up as high as 3.38, carving out an intraday rip of 82%

This morning, we saw ISR go as high as 4.00 in premarket trading, extending the overnight range on this play to an eyebrow-raising 115%

We’ll certainly be monitoring this stock as we cruise into week’s end. Like PBMD, we’ll be on the lookout for profit-taking to possibly put a dip-and-rip scenario into effect.


Holiday Island Holdings, Inc. HIHI

In our closing thought from yesterday’s report, we called attention to a massive one-third share reduction being enacted by HIHI, and were extremely pleased to have done so. From a low of .0015, the stock broke out to hit .00265; a healthy move totaling 76%

We then saw it pull back into the close, but we’re not finished monitoring the stock by any means. We caught wind of a promotion (in which we are not involved) going out on HIHI this morning, which could provide us with an impeccably-timed boost to extend our profits as we look to take them off the table.


In light of the monumental performances we’ve seen out of news-fueled pharma plays this week, we’ve dug up a few more this morning for us to pin to our watchlists:

Calithera Biosciences, Inc. CALA

Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ATNM

Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PZOO News & Other Updates

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We directed our attention at PZOO to start off the week, and so far the stock has put on a good performance. From a low of a penny on Monday we saw a nice move up, and yesterday the stock continued to build a higher base of support.

We witnessed a trading range from .0131 to .0144, a modest 10% intraday move; from our observed low on Monday, that’s registered as a nice 44% intraweek swing.

We’re going to need to keep our eye on PZOO as the week progresses, especially in light of the important news update we received from the company this morning regarding its ongoing expansion into the marijuana testing business (excerpt below).

WHIPPANY, N.J., May 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pazoo, Inc. (OTC:PZOO), is pleased to announce that wholly-owned subsidiary Harris Lee has gained the exclusive right to operate testing laboratories in the State of Colorado utilizing Steep Hill Labs’ highly-rated testing techniques and methodology.

Colorado is the third state in which Pazoo Inc. subsidiaries have created a license relationship with Steep Hill for their testing technology. Agreements have been established with Steep Hill in Nevada, Oregon and now Colorado. >> FULL PR


PlasmaTech Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. PTBI

PTBI is another call we made on Monday which has also returned a noteworthy two-day performance. It’s one that we had already tracked  over an impressive range earlier this month, and when we rehashed it on Monday, we observed a low of 8.05.

Yesterday the stock pushed its way to a high of 10.83, marking a 35% swing. We want to continue to keep a keen eye on PTBI; this morning’s PR alludes to the granting of Orphan Drug status to a couple of the company’s products by the FDA:


NOHO, Inc. DRNK

DRNK also appeared in yesterday’s premarket report, and we wanted to mention the activity that ensued. After gapping up in the morning, the stock executed a dip-and-rip pattern, coming down to bounce off of a low of .0054 before running back to .0076, providing a chance at up to 41% in intraday gains.

Enviro-Serv, Inc. EVSV

We mentioned EVSV along with MNKD yesterday, and it too made a strong move on the day. From .001 the stock found a subsequent high of .0015 for a nice, round, 50% pop.


Side Note:

We’re going to have an eye on HIHI as well today on the heel of some share reduction news. The company is reducing the outstanding shares by nearly a third, so we’ll be interested to follow the resulting price action. >> VIEW PR

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PZOO Recap & More

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

Our timing in re-alerting our readers to PZOO’s prime positioning in yesterday’s premarket report was absolutely spot-on. The stock had finally found and bounced off of a solid level of support in the prior session, and yesterday’s trading range provided a great chance for traders to make a solid buck.

From an early low of a penny, the needle was pointing up all day as PZOO ran into the end of the session, hitting .0136 for an intraday gain of 36% The stock closed just two ticks below its high of day (.0134) and logged a trading volume of nearly double the 3-month average.

Anytime we see a momentous daily performance like that, we’re always on the lookout for residual gains in following sessions.

We also want to remind our readers that today is the start of the a 4th Annual Marijuana Business Conference and Expo in Chicago, at which PZOO has secured a booth. It’s currently the country’s largest cannabis trade show, and runs from today through Thursday, with most of the activities kicking off tomorrow..

*We know that we have quite a few subscribers in the Greater Chicagoland Area, so we’d suggest going over to the conference at the Chicago Hilton to visit with Pazoo’s reps. The first 200 people to stop at the booth will receive a free custom t-shirt. >> Official PR


Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

We re-tagged PLUG, an old favorite, in our morning report from a week ago today. At the time, we saw a marginal gain from 2.48-2.73, and after spending another few sessions under an overall consolidation, PLUG found support yesterday at 2.53 where it began to rebound. In the premarket today the stock has traded as high 2.80.

We’re going to extend an options idea for PLUG that is significantly long-term; the September 18th $3.00 Calls (Last Traded: .19) could be in line to provide us with a solid opportunity/opportunities in the weeks and months ahead.


OraSure Technologies, Inc. OSUR

We also wanted to remind our readers of another timely alert we entered into the mix in yesterday’s report. OSUR traded in a range from 6.40 to 7.59, a respectable 19% increase.

Today the stock has surpassed that high in the premarket, running as high as 8.00, which extends the total overnight gain we’ve seen so far to 25% We’re going be watching for OSUR to possibly continue this run on the heel of some joint press with Walgreens this morning.


Potential Momentum Plays

Here we’ve got a couple of ‘momo-plays’ (one of which with a fresh PR out this morning) that we’re going to be keeping an eye on today:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing Friday’s Picks & More

Recapping Friday’s Options Ideas

We made it a point to pass along a handful of quick-strike options ideas on Friday. We mentioned the high-risk, high-reward nature of trading weekly contracts on a Friday, and we certainly were rewarded as every single idea we formulated bore fruit, to varying degrees.

Here’s a breakdown of the prime possibilities for profit that we observed:

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – The rather broad range we provided for NFLX were Weekly $595-612.50 Calls, and every set of contracts in that range made highly impressive moves:

$595 Calls - Daily Range: 6.58-23.00 – Max Gain: 250%
$597.50 Calls - Daily Range: 5.30-20.67 – Max Gain: 290%
$600 Calls - Daily Range: 3.63-18.02 – Max Gain: 396%
$602.50 Calls - Daily Range: 2.80-15.45 – Max Gain: 452%
$605 Calls – Daily Range: 1.10-12.82 – Max Gain: 1065%
$607.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.00-10.62  – Max Gain: 962%
$610 Calls – Daily Range: .80-8.17 – Max Gain: 921%
$612.50 Calls – Daily Range: .53-5.54 – Max Gain: 945%

____

Apple, Inc. AAPL - Our idea for AAPL was the Weekly $128 and $129 Calls, and a relatively volatile outing brought several significant swing-trade opportunities in each:

$128 Calls started out by first trading from an early low of 1.06 to 1.58 (+49%). It then pulled back to find support at .53 before taking off again to hit .99 (+86%). That swing was followed another ranging from .43-.92 (114%), and then by a final dip to .53 and run back to .81 (+53).

$129 Calls traded with similar action; four distinct swings of  53%, 134%, 167% and 300% occurred during the session.
____

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – The PBR Weekly $10 Calls that we tagged for observation made a monster move from .03-.20, yielding the chance at gains of up to 566%

The stock is gapping up in the premarket today, so we’re going to continue keep our eyes on PBR. Our interest to start out the week will be in the Weekly $10 and 10.50 Calls for potential daytrade swing-trade opportunities.

____

Huge congratulations go out to any of our followers that were able to bank some hefty gains off of Friday’s excellent options ideas!


Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We’re touching base with PZOO this morning to update our readers on what the stock has been up to lately. Many of you will recall the monumental April this stock had; we initiated coverage on April 1st, and PZOO essentially spent the entire month on an uptrend. The total range we observed over the course of the month went from .0049 to .0204, which amounted to an epic 316% swing.

We put the stock on the back burner this month as it consolidated off of those impressive highs, and we want to rehash our interest in this play now that it appears to be headed toward its next leg-up. We’d also suggest that folks check out the PR released by the company on Friday, which alludes to its partner’s ribbon-cutting on the Nevada medical marijuana testing facility that we’ve been anticipating.

We’ve prepared a video outlining the key aspects of the PZOO Chart:

MagneGas Corp. MNGA

We also want to pat ourselves on the back for a timely call of MNGA on Friday. We caught the news release highlighting the company’s contract with the US Navy, and it was enough to send the stock on a respectable intraday rip.

MNGA traded in a daily range from 1.08-1.48, which represented a healthy increase of 37% The move occurred on over 17X the 3-month average trading volume, and the stock closed just under the high of day, so we’ll be interested to see how the action unfolds as we kick off a new trading week today.
