DRYS, FREE & Extended Watchlist

DryShips, Inc. DRYS

DRYS appeared in Tuesday morning’s extended watchlist, after which time we observed a low of 3.40. Yesterday the stock hit a high of 3.99, marking an overnight move of 17% This morning, it looks like it is gapping up, so we will be monitoring this play today for added gains that could result from the current momentum.

Our first ever mention of DRYS was back on August 22nd, when the stock was trading around 2.20. From that point, yesterday’s high represents a move of 81% As you can see on the chart included, DRYS has been on a steady uptrend since it first hit our radar.


FreeSeas, Inc. FREE

We had FREE on bottom-watch back in July, and it wasn’t too long after that when we saw the stock touch a low of .1652 (08/01). After generally trading sideways for the month of August, FREE began a rise that has lasted all the way through this month, culminating in yesterday’s .59 high, a move of  257% off of its bottom.

This morning it looks like FREE is gapping up into the mid-.60′s range, so it seems further gains are on the menu. Today the company reported details of a deal that will clean a significant amount of debt from its balance sheet:
