Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Leap Day Report

Happy Leap Day!

Good morning, Traders! Before we jump into today’s report- it’s February 29th- so we’d like to wish our readers a Happy Leap Day! On this, the rarest of occasions, we thought it’d be interesting to use our archives to do a four year time-warp back to the last leap day and see what we were talking about.

It turns out that we had signaled Energy Recovery, Inc. ERII as a bottom-play opportunity on the morning of February 29th, 2012, and it  turned into one heck of a long-term idea. The stock actually ran from it’s then-price in the 2.50-range to nearly 8.00 over the course of the next two years!

Flash forward to the current situation; ERII has been trending upward for the past two weeks solid, after having just announced an upcoming share buyback program a few weeks prior to that (>>View PR). Meanwhile, we have an RSI heading toward the power zone, and a MACD (not pictured) showing sharp upward divergence. We’ll monitor the stock in coming sessions on the chance that it continues the nice head of steam it has built up at the moment.

Updates on Recent Winners

INTREorg Systems, Inc. IORG

We first introduced IORG to our reports two Fridays ago, when the stock was trading as low as .62, and it has since gone on to reach a high of .88. This 42% rise came on relatively light volume. Given that IORG has such a low float (just 14.4M shares outstanding) it’s possible that only a slight amount of buying pressure can effect even larger gains than we’ve seen thus far, so we’ll have an eye peeled for increased activity.

Provision Holding, Inc. PVHO

PVHO first began appearing in our reports a few weeks back, and has continued to do so with regularity. On the day of our initial mention we observed a PPS of .084, and subsequent high of .18 (+114%). That was followed by an eventual dip back to .106 before rocketing to a new high of .25 (+136%). We’ll continue to track PVHO as long as it keeps inching its way up the chart.

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. PANW – Options Update

Among our options daytrading ideas from Friday morning’s report, one stands tall among all the others. The PANW Weekly $147 Calls ran from .10-2.00 for an incredible 1900% rip, marking not the first or second, but *third* gainer of 1500% or more for the week!

Fresh Idea: Taser International, Inc.TASR (03/04 $18.50-20.50 Calls)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More, Inc. CRM – Options Update

Our fresh options idea in yesterday morning’s report panned out very well for us when all was said and done. We highlighted a range which encompassed six sets of contracts, the CRM Weekly $67.50-70 Calls, and regardless of which strike point was chosen, hefty intraday profits were there for the taking from around lunchtime, right up until the close.

The magnitude of the potential profits we observed were certainly not as epic as the two separate chances at 1500% gains provided to us by our Macy’s calls from earlier in the week, but in and of themselves, still very impressive.

$67.50 Calls – Trading Range: .70-2.04  – Max Gain: 191%
$68 Calls – Trading Range: .37-1.70 – Max Gain: 359%
$68.50 Calls – Trading Range: .35-1.20 – Max Gain: 243%
$69 Calls – Trading Range:  .12-.83 – Max Gain: 591%
$69.50 Calls – Trading Range: .13-.60 – Max Gain: 362%
$70 Calls – Trading Range:  .08-.30 – Max Gain: 275%

We must be doing something right when a 500% rip begins to seem small by comparison! In an attempt to extend our extreme good fortune with options plays this week right up to the end, we’ve prepared a couple of ideas* for possible day-trades based on premarket activity this morning.

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. – PANW Weekly $147-152.50 Calls

Baidu, Inc. – BIDU Weekly $172.50-177.50 Calls

*Pertaining to both of the preceding ideas, remember to always consider the inherent elevated risk associated with trading weekly options contracts on a Friday!

USA Restaurant Funding, Inc. USAR

After USAR offered us the chance at intraday gains of up to 51% on Wednesday as it ran from .0093-.0148, we suggested that a bounceplay could be in the cards, given the volatility we had observed- the stock had pulled back considerably toward the end of the session.

The rebound we referred to did come to pass during yesterday’s session, as USAR traded up from its daily low of  .0071 to a high of .0098. That represented a modest but solid 38% move on the day.

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK – Update

We placed AGTK in our reports multiple times earlier this month, and the stock has responded with quite a nice performance in the intervening weeks since those tags.

Shortly after our most recent mention, we’d observe a low of .003 followed by a steady ramp-up at first, giving way to more significant increases this week. It culminated in a high of .0121 yesterday which marked an overall swing of 303% in fewer than a dozen sessions!

Based on its heightening activity, we’ll continue to leave a slot open for AGTK on our radar screens moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: USAR Recap, Options Update & More

USA Restaurant Funding, Inc. USAR

We included USAR in our watchlist yesterday morning, and for the first half of the day it was off to the races with a healthy surge in PPS. We witnessed as the stock ran from its morning low of .0093, punched through the penny barrier, and reached a high of .0148. That worked out to an intraday pop of 51%

The latter portion of the session saw USAR slide back to new daily lows in the high .006-range. With such volatility present in the stock, we’ll certainly need to exercise caution, while at the same time continuing to scan for similar chart activity that could lead us to similar intraday gains moving forward.

Macy’s, Inc. M – Options Update

After serving up the chance at a 1500% intraday gain on Tuesday, our range of observed contracts, the M Weekly $41.50-45 Calls, had already served their purpose wonderfully.

We expected to see those contracts continue to make moves if the trading action in Macy’s stock allowed for it, but even we were blown away when yet another 15-bagger surfaced for the second consecutive session!

With the exception of the $44.50 and $45 Calls, which were too far from the money to offer up any real chances, every other contract in our tracked group yielded excellent opportunities for massive one-day profits:

$41.50 Calls – Trading Range:  .40-1.48 – Max Gain: 270%
$42 Calls – Trading Range: .22-1.20 – Max Gain: 445%
$42.50 Calls – Trading Range: .15-.81 – Max Gain: 440%
$43 Calls – Trading Range: .07-.48 – Max Gain: 586%
$43.50 Calls – Trading Range:  .05-.29 – Max Gain: 480%
$44 Calls – Trading Range:   .01-.16 – Max Gain: 1500%


Fresh Options Idea –, Inc. CRM

Today, we’ll look to possibly take advantage of the activity in CRM in the wake of its untraded-upon earnings beat yesterday. We’re going to zero in on the CRM Weekly $67.50-70 Calls for daytrade opportunities today and possibly even swing-trades into tomorrow.

Mexus Gold US  MXSG

We also want to provide a quick update on the success of another recent interest of ours. We’ve been tracking MXSG all month, and after seeing the stock trade as low as .0016 when we first started including it in our selections, we’ve witnessed it rocket to a new high of .008. That’s a huge 400% increase in just a few week’s time!
