Good Morning Traders! Here it is- the final report of 2014! We had an amazing year, with huge gainers popping out of the woodwork left, right, and center! We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers for being a part of our community, wish you all a Happy New Year while reminding everyone that the best is yet to come… Each year our resolution remains the same: To make the upcoming year our best one ever! We’ve succeeded time and time again, and have no reason to believe that 2015 will be any different so be sure to stay with us! Cheers!

NeuroDerm Ltd. NDRM
NDRM exceeded all expectations yesterday after we caught it on an early morning news scan; it spent the entire day in full-on breakout mode setting records in both price and volume, trading almost 27X the norm over the six week period since the stock’s IPO.

Positive response to yesterday’s early morning press statement hurtled NDRM from an early low of 8.16 all the way up to 19.07 just prior to the close, making gains of up to 134% possible.

We’ll still be standing at the ready for an eventual course correction and chance for a dip-and-rip maneuver, but any way you slice it, NDRM is getting marked down as a huge winner. It’s a great way to close out what has, on the whole, been an absolutely stellar year.

Precious Metals on Watch: Gold, Silver

GDX and SLV have each been maintaining higher highs and higher lows since reaching a bottom in November. As we head into the New Year, we’re going to devote a good amount of focus to gold and silver, and tracking these indices and their options chains is going to be a good way to do that.

In particular, we’re going to be monitoring a few specific sets of contracts for each play:

  SLV – March $15-15.50 Calls

GDX – March $17.50-$18 Calls

As you can see from the side-by-side chart we drew up below, GDX and SLV are looking similarly ripe. We’ve got SLV breaking the 50-Line on the RSI, and GDX following closely behind in that regard, we’re seeing testing of the 50DMA’s on both charts, and each of the MACD’s are giving the indication of bullish crosses.

Side Note:
We’re also going to radar HMCP, a sub-penny momentum play that has had an interesting past few sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WATT Recap, NDRM & More

Energous Corp.  WATT

We first began tracking WATT on Wednesday of last week, and on that day we witnessed a low of 8.40. Yesterday, just three sessions later, the stock bullrushed its way to a high of 11.20, a highly respectable three-day increase of 33%

This is one that will remain on our watchlist heading into this week’s holiday break, and in order for us to remain interested we’ll want to see the stock maintain support in the  9.60-10.75 range., Inc. AMZN – Options Idea

AMZN started flirting with the 50 DMA ($311) getting above it yesterday for the first time in a few weeks. Chart conditions are ripe with RSI just getting above the 50 line and the MACD having just underwent a bullish cross as we point out in the snapshot below.

As a result of these conditions, we want to radar the January 17th $300-315 Calls which closed yesterday at 15.62 and 6.53 respectively.

NeuroDerm Ltd. NDRM

NDRM, having just come off of a relative bottom, is flying high in the premarket this morning, gapping up to tune of 30% The company announced enccouraging top-line results for one of their treatments currently in testing, and the reaction is being felt on the chart.

We will be looking at this play the way we do most stock that are surging hard on news; observing for profit-takers to cause a pullback off of the top, and a dip-and-rip where we can take advantage of the subsequent rebound.


Extended Watchlist:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Revisiting TASR & More

TASER International, Inc. TASR

We’ve been tracking TASR since late November, and the stock has gained a good bit of ground over the last month, so we wanted to touch base and update readers on its performance so far. December 1st was the day we witnessed the low on TASR with the stock touching 20.79 during that session, and it hasn’t looked back yet.

Continuing orders from police agencies for TASER’s body-worn video cameras has fueled quite a run, as  the stock managed to break to new highs since we’ve been paying attention on Friday, despite the holiday-shortened week. TASR ran as high as 27.65, which, from the low we observed roughly one month ago, represents an increase of 33% It also puts the stock effectively in blue skies, trading as high as it has in ten years.

We like the trajectory TASR is on, with current events seeming to support a case for the stock going even higher. Amid growing calls for more law enforcement accountability from both the public and the agencies themselves, during a time when incidents between citizens and officials appear to be reaching critical levels, TASR is positioned perfectly to capitalize on the fallout. As we’ve mentioned before, TASER is a trusted name in law enforcement and the public arena, and thus a natural choice for technology that promises to create more transparency in local police departments. It makes it a story that we’re likely to follow over the long-term.

General Employment Enterprises, Inc. JOB

JOB has been on quite a run lately, coming up from the .20-range earlier this month, and we’re going to be monitoring the stock as we kick off another split-week. Over the past several sessions, JOB has pushed its way into blue sky breakout mode, and we’re going to be on the lookout for a continuation of the significant momentum that has been building in the stock.

At a certain point, profit-taking should begin to peel JOB back a bit, and so we’ll also be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip when that pullback leads to an eventual bounce.

American Apparel, Inc. APP

The last time we mentioned APP roughly a week back after seeing nearly 100% in gains, we gave the prices at which we wanted to see support hold as the .85-1.00 range. The stock has managed to maintain above a dollar for the most part, and we wanted to give it another nod this morning, and remind people that it still remains on our watchlist.

There seems to be a Golden Cross setting up on the chart, another reason why we want to establish a close watch over this play. Additionally, last year around this time and from roughly this price range, APP began a three-month run that brought it to well over two dollars. This has traditionally been a seasonal play for us, so we’re always open to the possibility of history repeating itself.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WATT Recap & More

Energous Corp.  WATT

WATT was included in our extended watchlist on Wednesday before the holiday break, and the stock went on to make a modest yet solid move, despite having only a short session in which to do so. We saw the stock rise from an early low of 8.40 on up to a high of 9.50, which represents an intraday spike of 13%

Apart from its bullish chart, one of the main reasons that WATT is so interesting is that its “WattUp” technology is so close to the cutting edge. Wireless charging has gained a fair bit of steam with charging mats over the past several years, but those require that the device be sitting on the pad. A technology that can rout power wirelessly over a much larger area has yet to make its way to the mainstream.

We’ll be keeping watch over WATT, which could really make a splash if the WattUp technology proves to be as versatile and efficient as the company claims, and is able to clear FCC Certification for which it is currently undergoing tests. >> LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NQ, RAD Reviews & More

NQ Mobile, Inc. NQ

NQ appeared at the top of our extended watchlist yesterday and stood out as the day’s top pick. The stock increased gradually all day long from an early low of 3.86, and touched 4.77 just prior to the closing bell. That solid intraday move was good for gains of up to 24% as NQ traded close to 6X its 3-month average volume.

The spike came on the heels of a big announcement from the company as it gears up for an $80M buyback program that will last for the duration of 2015.

BEIJING and DALLAS, Dec. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – NQ Mobile, Inc. (“NQ Mobile” or the “Company“) (NQ), a leading global provider of mobile internet services, announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to US$80 million of its shares over the next 12 months. >> FULL PR

Rite-Aid Corp. RAD

Just a reminder for those who might have missed our close coverage of RAD over the past week, we latched onto this stock last Tuesday, catching it at a low of 5.79. We’ve seen incremental gains from this play from that time, and yesterday it continued to press upward, setting a new high at 7.45. That marked an overall increase of 29% that we’ve observed in just one week.

The stock continues to push its way up in premarket trading this morning, having traded as high as 7.54 so far, so we’ll be certain to pay close attention as we close out the early portion of this split trading week, and once we return on Friday.

As we stated yesterday, according to the opinions of many analysts, RAD has room to see a PPS in the $8-range, and with the movements we’ve tracked over a short period of time we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see that happen.

The markets wrap up at 1PM this afternoon for the start of the holiday break. We want to take this opportunity to extend our warmest Season’s Greetings to all of our readers regardless of how you will be spending the hiatus. Be safe and well, and we will be back bright and early on Friday to close out the week! Cheers!
