Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FRTD & Extended Watchlist Winners

Fortitude Group, Inc. FRTD

We’ve discussed FRTD for the majority of this week, beginning on Tuesday. As of yesterday, it has yet to disappoint.

Yesterday, for the third consecutive session, the intraday activity on FRTD provided us with ample opportunity for profits. The stock played out a textbook dip-n-rip pattern coming down from the .0225 open to trade as low as .0156, before bouncing back up to its high-of-day at .0231. That’s an intraday gain of 48% When added to Tuesday’s 122% move, and Wednesday’s 65% move, that brings us to a cumulative total of 235%

Should FRTD manage to hold support at or above the .015-mark, we like our odds of seeing further intraday bounce opportunities from this play.

Positive ID Corporation PSID

Ever since we brought PSID, an old favorite, back to the table in a report we published on February 18th, the stock has been creeping steadily higher each day. At the time of that initial alert, we observed a low of .0572. That places our total possible gain on this play at 92% as of yesterday’s high mark at .11.

Take a look at the following chart we’ve annotated to highlight some of the key aspects of the chart. Conditions appear to suggest that a sustained uptrend could be in the cards. In the event that another consolidation period occurs we’d like to see support hold at or above the 200DMA.

If you take a look at the search results for PLUG in our archives, you can see that we’ve followed it every step of the way.

You don’t need a calculator to tell how impressive the overall move from PLUG has been, but just for fun, let’s use ours: In one year’s time, PLUG has given us the gift of an absolutely unreal increase of 3,917% measuring from yesterday’s high of 4.64!

The stock reached these heights thanks in part to orders the company has received from the world’s largest retailer. Along its current trajectory, we would not be surprised to see this stock continue its steady advance:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FRTD, A Word on the Cannabis Sector

Fortitude Group, Inc. FRTD

We sincerely hope that our readers caught yesterday morning’s report, and read all the way through to the Extended Watchlist where we included FRTD as new cannabis momentum play. The head of steam that the stock began to build on the heels of a recent series of PR’s regarding the company’s entry into the trendy cannabis sector led to continued advances during yesterday’s session.

We saw FRTD touch a low of .0081 before exploding to its high-of-day at .018, a positive intraday move of 122%

FRTD is just the latest in the long line of companies we’ve seen take advantage of the hysterical nature of 2014’s “Green Rush”. While much of the initial fervor we witnessed in December and January has relaxed, don’t expect to stop hearing about this sector anytime soon. In fact, as more and more data comes in, we expect the marijuana business to grow exponentially as each state realizes the financial benefits and caves to economic pressure.

This hypothesis was reinforced by the January tax numbers from Pueblo Country, CO (where the substance is now completely legal) came in. See THIS ARTICLE, which shows that based on their January tax income from marijuana sales, the county stands to increase their annual bugdet by nearly 5%  Colorado is currently serving as an experimental template, and you can be sure that all across the nation, legislators and business people alike are watching intently.

In other news, US banks are quickly clearing hurdles in the way of providing services to pot-related business, and the general sentiment in Washington, is to let this all play out naturally. Even the current administration has made statements which set the table for widespread marijuana reform. Several legislators have petitioned the president to reclassify marijuana, a relatively harmless substance when considering the fact that it now shares a classification with heroin and similarly dangerous drugs.

While many obstacles remain to be navigated, the proverbial ball has begun rolling, and it seems now that there is little that can ultimately stand in the way of progress.


ERIE, PA, Feb 24, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Fortitude Group, Inc. (OTC: FRTD) CEO Thomas J. Parilla is pleased to announce that on February 22, 2014, the Company executed a Master Agent Agreement with Under the terms of the agreement, Fortitude will offer and facilitate closed-loop transaction processing to legal dispensaries in the medical marijuana industry as well as provide processing for entities in states that have legalized recreational marijuana sales.
