Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAN, RFMD, FTNW & Extended Watchlist

Aarons, Inc. AAN – Options

One item of interest that we’ve been waiting to touch upon is AAN. We’ve watched as the stock has taken quite a beating over the past few weeks, and are presently scanning for a bottom. After losing so much ground over so short a time period, when support is found, the recovery on AAN could end up allowing for some rapid profits in the options chain.

While we need to first observe a solid base of support before setting our short-term call strategy, there are already a pair of longer-term contracts that we’re going to put on watch. The November 22nd $29 and $30 Calls (trading yesterday at 3.20 and 2.05, respectively) could see significant rises in value once a reversal occurs on the chart.

RF Micro Devices, Inc. RFMD

We brought RFMD up as a topic of discussion this past Friday, mentioning that the spike catalyzed by the release of record revenues was likely to lead to a classic ‘dip-and-rip’ scenario. That keen instinct has thus far paid off, as the stock did indeed dip to 10.74 before rebounding as high as 11.79 (+10%), achieving higher lows each day over the past four sessions.

As a result of the trend, we’re going to have our eyes on the September $12 Calls, which closed at .70 yesterday.

FTE Networks, Inc. FTNW

FTNW hit our news scanner this morning and will be a stock that we monitor as the trading session opens today. The PR alludes to some lucrative contracts, so we’ll be interested to see how it reacts to such significant press.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Revisiting CETV & More

Central European Media Enterprises, Inc. CETV
CETV is a stock we’ve looked in upon a few times over the past year or so, first catching it all the way back in May of 2013. We like to keep a continuous eye on all of our past winners in the event that they might bring future opportunities, and that’s why we’re going to revisit CETV this morning.

The stock is coming off of recent lows, and is showing some signs of life on the heels of improved earnings released today, presently gapping up past the 50DMA, up 10% in the pre-market, and trading in the high 2.70’s. We’re going to want to watch closely as the stock reacts to some favorable numbers:

In Ovations Holdings, Inc. INOH

INOH popped up on our scanners this morning as a sub-penny play with bottom-bounce potential. The stock is coming off of a recent sub-.001 bottom, and began to rebound during yesterday’s session.

INOH had a rapid spike to more than .008 back in June, so we know the potential for a move is there, and will keep a close watch over INOH in coming sessions.

Side Notes:


Speaking of bottom bouncers, we just wanted to make a quick mention of yesterday’s extended watchlist play, PGTI. The stock gapped up and reversed course, trading in a daily range from 8.76 – 9.77, an intraday move of 11.5%. We’ll be looking in on PGTI today to see if it can maintain course.

NQ Mobile, Inc. NQ

NQ has made repeat appearances in our reports, most recently July 21st, and since that time, has been trending off of its own bottom. Even after several sessions of positive trading, we want to pay special attention to NQ following word of a possible buyout:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: XUII and PLUG Updates

Xumanii International Holdings Corp. XUII

XUII continued to run following the afternoon update we sent out yesterday, achieving a new high of day just prior to the close at .0026, marking a full 100% move in just a single day. The stock closed just one tick below at .0025, and ended up trading 744M shares, well over 10x the 3-month average volume going into the session.

Moving forward, we’ll be keeping a close eye on XUII, which will need to maintain support at or above .0018 in the worst case scenario to hold our interest.  That would be our theoretical stop-loss point, and as you can see on the included chart, the next major area of resistance doesn’t crop up until .0033.

Based on the momentum into yesterday’s close, we may be looking at a gap up from XUII first thing this morning. Ideally we’d like to see the 50DMA of .0024 hold as support.

Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

Reigning as one of our most successful picks of all time, PLUG has appeared in our reports more than 40 times since we first caught it at .135, near all-time lows on February 28th, 2013. We tracked this play from those levels all the way up to an astonishing high of 11.72 roughly a year later, so PLUG will always hold a special place in our trading hall of fame, and never really get taken off of our watchlist.

We want to bring PLUG back to the forefront of the conversation again this morning, on the heels of a PR that just hit the wires, regarding a big purchase order from the world’s largest retailer. The stock is gearing up for a gap-up in pre-market trading, so we’ll want to keep a sharp eye on this one. This is the kind of press that can lead to rapid short-term gains.

ATHAM, N.Y., July 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plug Power Inc. (PLUG) today confirms the company has received a follow-on GenKey purchase order from Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. to add an additional, seventh, GenKey site to the original six-site contract it announced in February 2014. This additional site in Sterling, IL consists of 286 GenDrive fuel cell units and is planned to deploy in the third quarter of 2014. >> FULL PR
