Nouveau Life Pharmaceuticals, Inc. NOUV
As if the two-day, 1102% swing we had already witnessed from NOUV between Thursday and Friday weren’t enough, the stock continued to show volatility with a nice intraday move yesterday following its inclusion in our morning report.
NOUV traded in a range from .0046 up to .008, marking an intraday rip of 74% which came on roughly eight times the 3-month average volume. It also closed having held more than half of its daily advance, which puts us on alert to continue monitoring its activity as we progress through the week.

New Gold, Inc. NGD
We want to place NGD on an extended bottom-watch after the activity which has transpired over the past few sessions. The stock fell off of a cliff, dropping more than a third of its total value in less than a full trading week. The move comes in conjunction with the announcement that production costs per ounce would rise in 2017, as well as the company coming up short on financing for the buildout of its ‘Rainy River’ mine by more than $100M.
While those are certainly noteworthy occurrences, we look at the rapid drop-off in PPS more as an opportunity to get some skin in the game at a discounted price. We’ll be watching NGD closely for a reversal, which admittedly might not happen right away, but could be quite a prime rebound opportunity when it does.
It’s worth mentioning that despite production costs per ounce rising from just under $700 to more than $800 for NGD, even at the higher figure, it still places them well in the profitability range (gold currently trading for, and at a significantly lower cost than many mining outfits.
Wal-mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Idea
Speaking of longer-term ideas, we’re looking at WMT this morning after the stock posted a near 9-month low on Friday, followed by a bullish candle to kick the week off yesterday.
It comes on the heels of the news that the retail giant had fired a shot across Amazon’s bow, with the revelation that it would be offering free two-day shipping on over 2 million items via Walmart.com, which cuts Amazon Prime’s main incentive off at the knees.
We’ll be very interested to see how the market responds to such a development over a longer time frame. In correlation, we’re going to be monitoring the activity in the WMT 03/03 $68-69.50 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.
