Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, Options & More

First thing’s first- we have a few of updates from our premarket report on Tuesday, that we held over until today in favor of the Special Report which we published yesterday.

Neothetics, Inc. NEOT

One of the real standouts from our premarket report on Tuesday morning turned out to be NEOT, which stair-stepped its way steadily up the chart all day long.

From its low of .83, the stock traded up as high as 1.99, which worked out to an intraday increase of 140% and the move occurred on extremely high volume, to the tune of more than 85X the monthly average.

Yesterday, NEOT transitioned into consolidation mode off of that impressive high, so we’ll be monitoring it for support, because the recent volatility suggests that a significant rebound could ensue.


 TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We caught TRXC on Monday after it was reported that the company’s robotic surgery device got regulatory approval. The result was a very nice run from a low of  2.15 to 3.05 (+42%) on that day. Tuesday, we mentioned that we’d be on the lookout for further gains, and the stock did go on to hit new highs.

Tuesday TRXC ran from 3.28 all the way up to an even 5.00, an intraday gain of 52% and an overall increase of 133% from our observed low at the beginning of this week.

Yesterday, much like NEOT, TRXC began to pull back, and so we’ll also want to continuie watching this one for a potential dip-and-rip type formation.


Firefish, Inc. FRFS – Chatroom Call

FRFS was .0047 when we alerted it our trader’s chatroom on Tuesday morning. As of yesterday’s high of .077, we had witnessed a mind-blowing two-day swing of 1538% With the kind of price action and volatility we’ve seen exhibited by FRFS in the past two days, we’ll definitely want to keep our eyes peeled for further activity.

This play is another good example of why we encourage our members to get involved with this aspect of our daily activities. Ideas that come to us after 9AM Eastern don’t make it into our premarket reports, so the chats are your way to keep up with what’s moving in real time.

These Skype-based live chats are open to any of our readers. Just send a contact request to the username “stocksumo”.


Ulta Beauty, Inc ULTA – Options Idea

We’re looking at ULTA as a potential recovery play into the holiday season, as the stock just bounced off of a new annual low this week. Last week, a huge block of insider buying came in, on the order of more than $21M.

For some extended-term recovery ideas, we’re going to signal  and track the ULTA 12/01 $202.50-212.50 Calls and the 12/15 $210-225 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Special Report

SNM Global Holdings, Inc. SNMN – Special Report

We’ve got an item of special interest to present today, in SNMN, a well-diversified holding company. Among the company’s present interests, which we will highlight below, is a recent entry into the cannabis space.

Our regular readers are well aware of our affinity for the burgeoning marijuana markets as a whole, so any time we notice another company attempting to carve out a slice of the pie, we always take notice.

Less than a month ago, SNMN announced the launch of a new wholly-owned subsidiary, Cannabis Payment Solutions, to be involved in all aspects of the legal cannabis industry.

The company describes it as a complete payment ecosystem for the provision of a cashless payment option for the retail, commercial, and industrial sale of legal marijuana. Using a mobile payment app combined with point-of-sale hardware, customers can quickly complete cash-free purchases at cannabis dispensaries nationwide. The registration system is HIPAA, KYC, and AML compliant and will have the most advanced encryption to maintain account security and data integrity.

Also in the pipeline for SNMN are a number of other current projects, including a unique franchising opportunity with a themed bar/donut shop, and plans for a significant share reduction to tighten up the structure.

The company released an update on the donut shop yesterday:

SNMN announced the official acquisition of all franchise rights as well as a joint venture of corporate rights to Naughty Girls Donut Shop (NGD), which features crafted donuts, pastries, desserts, and wine with a 1940′s motif.

Naughty Girls Donut Shop will open in Sterling, Va. with plans to expand into Georgetown, DC and beyond. The company hopes to grow the concept into a national brand in the near future.

So what we have in SNMN is a company with multiple irons in the fire, both of which are of extreme interest to us, and not only that, but the chart is currently setting up for what could be a big run.

We’ve pointed out the key resistance areas on the chart, which as you can see is exhibiting the signs of a potential bottom-bouncer.

SNMN made an incredible run of more than 700% from late this summer until the end of last month, and we’re going to want to keep a close eye out for its next leg-up, which could come at any time.

Side Note: We had some really nice gainers in yesterday morning’s premarket report, which we’ll recap tomorrow morning. See you then!a

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DIS, TRXC Recaps & More

 TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We made a good catch when we included TRXC in yesterday morning’s premarket report, after it was reported that the company’s robotic surgery device got the regulatory approval it needed.

The result was a very nice run from a low of  2.15 to 3.05, the highest PPS the stock has seen since the spring of 2016. That works out to an intraday push of 42% and this morning TRXC is edging even higher in before-hours trading, so we’ll want to continue to keep an eye on it moving forward.


Walt Disney Co. DIS

We highlighted some options ideas for Disney yesterday morning, after noticing that it had  a nice bottom setup on the chart, trading near its ten-month lows.

For a near-term idea we signaled the DIS Weekly $96-98 Calls and among those five contracts, three produced opportunities for solid single-session gains.

$97 Calls – Range: 1.15-1.57 – Max Gain: 37%
$97.50 Calls – Range: .81-1.22  – Max Gain: 51%.
$98 Calls – Range: .49-.89 – Max Gain: 82%

We also noticed that the $98.50s had the highest open interest, so we will want to roll up our observed range a little and keep an eye on those for the remainder of the week.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX

We also want to put a few options contracts in the NFLX chain on watch. The stock has been in a general uptrend for nearly all of 2017, with the exception of one month between late July and late August. Currently the stock is approaching extreme overbought levels on the strength index just as it was prior to that downturn.

On the flip side, boosted guidance and a strong earnings call this morning could make things interesting. Due to these opposing factors, we’re going to want to watch some contracts on both sides of the fence, depending on NFLX’s behavior once regular market hours kick in.

If the stock can’t get above $207.50, we’re going to zero in on the NFLX Weekly $207.50 and $205 Puts. Conversely, if it holds above $200 on any pullbacks, we’ll focus on the Weekly $200-205 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Momentum Plays & More

 Possible Momentum Plays

We’re looking at a pair of stocks this morning that have broken out, and that we’d like to monitor on the chance that they produce sustained uptrends.

Leading Brands, Inc. LBIX - This was a fairly illiquid stock until just recently, when it broke out of a mundane pattern of low volatility and began a run into blue skies which lasted from Tuesday through Friday. We’ll stay wary of the possibility for course corrections, but a dip-and-rip scenario could definitely come into play here in coming sessions. The volatility has ramped up in a huge way, which is what we always look out for as swing traders.
______

22nd Century Group Inc. XXII – In the case of XXII, the stock has traded in a fairly predictable pattern over the past few months, during which time it has formed a solid upward channel. The company also recently closed a $54M direct offering at 2.65/share. We’ll look for this one to continue to build, keeping an eye on it as we kick off a new trading week.


Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Ideas

We also want to signal a couple of options ideas for Disney, which has a pretty nice bottom setup on the chart, trading near its lowest per-share pricing since December.

For a near-term idea, we’re going to be looking at the DIS Weekly $96-98 Calls and the DIS 11/24 $98-99 Calls in the event of an extended recovery, which seems due at any time now.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INFI Review & More

Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. INFI

The stock with the most notable performance from yesterday morning’s watchlist was definitely INFI, which began trending up in the premarket, and continued its climb throughout the entire session.

The stock traded up from a low of 2.44 to 3.75, which works out to an intraday rise of 54% and it came on roughly 38X its monthly average volume. An early pullback from profit taking this morning would be a likely scenario, but if INFI can find support at a higher point than yesterday’s low, from



AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ACRX

After the FDA’s rejecion of the company’s ‘Dsuvia” opioid painkiller, ACRX took a monstrous pounding yesterday down to its lowest price in three months.

As you can see on the chart, it fell all the way down to an area of support it had established back in July. We’ll be interested to monitor this play for a bottom, which could come at any time. Moves generated by FDA news, whether positive or negative, tend to be over-exaggerated and are almost always followed by a course correction.


Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corp ITEK

Here we have an example of being extremely ‘early to the party’ as we sometimes say. We alerted on ITEK back in July, after which point it saw a low of .89. It mostly traded sideways throughout the remainder of the summer, but recently began quite an impressive climb.

This morning, the stock hit news highs of 4.15 in premarket trading on news of a proposed merger with a clinical stage gene therapy company. It may have took a few months to realize, but it works out to an increase of 366%

For an added angle going forward, we’ll also signal the ITEK 10/20 $2.50 Calls for possible daytrades and/or swing trades into next week, and the 11/17 $2.50 & $5.00 Calls for a longer term idea.
