Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ERBB Recap, Options & More

American Green, Inc. ERBB

In lieu of a typical extended watchlist yesterday morning, we included a series of cannabis related plays. From that list came the familiar face of ERBB, which had itself a solid session which included a strong close.

On more than three times its monthly average volume, the stock traded in a range from .00289 to a high of .0045 (+56%) before closing just a couple of ticks below at .0043. That’s the highest PPS since June of 2015, yet another indication that a second green rush is currently in force.

Procter and Gamble Co. PG – Options Recap

We also wanted to give a quick rehash of the moves made by the options we signaled for observation in yesterday’s report, the PG Weekly $85.50-88 Calls.

We mentioned we’d be on the lookout for a gap-and-go to start the session, and that’s exactly what took place. Despite tapering off toward the end of the day, some nice gains were there for the taking in the morning.

$85.50 Calls – Range: 1.70-2.43 – Max Gain: 43%
$86 Calls – Range: 1.36-2.04 – Max Gain: 50%
$86.50 Calls
– Range: .97-1.53 – Max Gain: 58%
$87 Calls – Range: .66-1.25 – Max Gain: 89%
$87.50 Calls – Range: .41-.88 – Max Gain: 115%
$88 Calls – Range: .25-.61 – Max Gain: 144%

Lockheed Martin Corp. LMT – Options Idea

We’re going to formulate an options idea for major defense contractor Lockheed Martin today, which posted a healthy beat on earnings yesterday, causing a major spike on the chart that sent it up well past its 50DMA.

We’re going to be keen on the LMT 12/02 $255-260 Calls providing that the stock maintains support above this morning’s premarket high of 247.40 on any forthcoming pullbacks.

Extended Watchlist:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IFAN, NEWC Updates & More

IFAN Financial, Inc. IFAN

We had multiple runners come out of yesterday morning’s premarket report, but the star of the show was was without a doubt IFAN. This was a case of looking in the right place at the right time. The stock had posted a marginal increase the session prior, but yesterday’s run was a cut above.

We witnessed as it traded in a fantastic range from .0031, cracking through the penny barrier and reaching a high of .0118. That worked out to an intraday rip of 281% which occurred on nearly thrice the monthly average trading volume.

In instances such as these, we always keep the stock on our radar in the event that the excellent momentum it’s built up washes over into another session.

New Columbia Resources, Inc. NEWC

Prior to yesterday morning’s mention, we had signaled NEWC for observation most recently a week ago today, and the ramp-up we’ve seen between then and yesterday’s solid session has been pretty impressive.

After witnessing a low of .01 subsequent to last week’s report, the stock has really taken off this week, yesterday trading up from .0231 to a new high of .0449 (+94%), which from a penny, marks an upswing of 349% in just a few sessions.

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK 

Speaking of new highs, we’ve been tracking AGTK heavily of late, and it too set a new high mark for us in yesterday’s session, despite already being up so high. As we were mentioning yesterday morning, we caught this play on September 14th, at a low of .003, and the stock never looked back.

Yesterday’s decent move carried it from .0285-.036, a 26% intraday push, which is incredibly modest compared to the overall run we’ve been watching. Yesterday’s new peak registered as an increase of 1100% on the dot over our observed low.

Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. PLPL

We brought back a familiar play in PLPL last Thursday, and reminded readers to continue paying attention in yesterday’s premarket report. The stock has responded with with a nice performance in that span.

Yesterday’s session brought a healthy 56% move up from .04 to a new high of .0624, which from the three-cent low we witnessed at the end of last week, marks a swing of 108%

The Procter and Gamble Co. PG – Fresh Options Idea

As a result of the confluence of both an attractive technical setup on the chart where it recently came down to 4-month lows, in addition to a well-received quarterly earnings report this morning, we want to tag some PG options for potential daytrades and or intraweek swing trades. We had multiple landmark plays that fit the same description last week, and came away with chances for multibag gains in almost every instance.

To attempt to do the same thing this week, we’re going to look to the PG Weekly $85.50-88 Calls, which should see some nice activity if the action unfolds the way it appears it might. We’ll be looking for a gap-and-go setup to facilitate that.

Cannabis Watchlist:

The “Green Rush” continues… Aside from the three above-mentioned cannabis plays we want to continue to keep the top traded pot stocks on watch for further gains. The momentum in the sector as a whole, as we’ve cautioned readers, has continued in a big way.

TRTC, HEMP, OWCP, PHOT, MCOA, ERBB are among some of the headliners in that regard, but by no means the only marijuana related stocks that are set to explode leading up to and following election day, whereupon recreational consumption will most likely become legal in the state of California.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NFLX, MCD Options Recaps & More

Options Recaps

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – We persisted in tracking the NFLX options idea that we formulated on Tuesday for the remainder of the week, and they ended up performing great yet again on Friday.  If you recall, our designated targets were the NFLX Weekly $117-120 Calls, and they didn’t have a down day all week.

The following figures indicate the lows we observed on Tuesday morning, and the subsequent highs reached during Friday’s session. What we were faced with were four incredible intraweek increases:

$117 Calls – Range: 2.19-10.77 – Max Gain: 392%
$118 Calls – Range: 1.43-10.02 – Max Gain: 601%
$119 Calls – Range: 1.03-8.87 – Max Gain: 761%
$120 Calls – Range: 1.07-7.83 – Max Gain: 631%


 McDonalds Corp. MCD - Our highlighted range of MCD Weekly $113-115 Calls was fresh for Friday’s session, and it bore fruit as well. While we didn’t sweep the range in terms of hefty gains, the $113′s in particular did provide a nice chance to profit on the day.

Those calls traded in a range from .33 and shot to 1.43, allowing for  single-session gains of up to 333%

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK 

Subsequent to the alert we put out on AGTK last month on the 14th, we would observe an overall low of .003, and the stock has never fallen below that level since. In fact, what began as a subpenny play, has rumbled its way to multiple pennies after a fantastic performance last week.

Running to a new high of .0298 on Friday, the stock registered an overall increase of 893% over our observed low, and with a strong close at .028, we’ll be on the lookout for some momentum spillover into this week. The possibility of a dip-and-rip forming on the chart also appears to be a plausible scenario, so we’ll be on our toes watching for that possibility as well.

AGTK is also a part of the cannabis sector, which of course we’ve been watching more intently, and plan to continue doing so leading into election day the week after next.

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. PPHM

This is another familiar play for us, and we want to tag it for closer observation again this morning on the strength of both a fresh PR hitting the wires along with an attractive technical setup on the chart.

As you can see below, the stock has recorded a higher low in each of the last five sessions since coming off a bottom, and indicators suggest that things could heat up for this play at any time. We’ll keep an eye peeled.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Wrapping Up Another Great Week

Options Roundup

American Express Co. AXP – For a fresh idea yesterday, we signaled a range of AXP options that we felt would see some nice activity in the wake of an earnings beat for American Express. The targets were the AXP Weekly $64-65.50 Calls.

Our assumptions proved accurate, with major moves happening for all four sets of contracts contained within that range:

$64 Calls – Range: 1.10-3.83 – Max Gain: 248%
$64.50 Calls – Range: .81-3.20 – Max Gain: 295%
$65 Calls – Range: .44-3.57 – Max Gain: 711%
$65.50 Calls – Range: .33-2.30 – Max Gain: 597%


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – We also had a running options idea going for NFLX since Tuesday, and the gains were extended even further for us in yesterday’s session. The NFLX Weekly $117-120 Calls have gone up every day since our initial alert, exceeding even our own expectations.

The updated figures below represent the range from Tuesday’s lows, to the new highs recorded yesterday, and the total possible gains therein:

$117 Calls – Range: 2.19-6.70 – Max Gain: 206%
$118 Calls – Range: 1.43-5.71 – Max Gain: 299%
$119 Calls – Range: 1.03-4.66 – Max Gain: 352%

Today’s Fresh Ideas

Microsoft Corp MSFT  – Continuing along our extremely successful pattern of taking advantage of earnings beats for options trading this week, we’re going to submit two last ideas today. With Microsoft hitting all-time highs, we’ll be very interested in tracking the activity in the MSFT Weekly $59-61 Calls*, and if the stock manages to break $61, of course we’d have to roll our strike prices up.

 McDonalds Corp. MCD - McDonalds’ earnings report is also being well received this morning and MCD was a stock that had been previously backsliding. We’ll look to take advantage of the potential reversal with the MCD Weekly $113-115 Calls*.

*We always issue an extra warning when highlighting an idea that involves trading weekly options on a Friday. If you’re not an advanced trader, don’t even attempt it!

Other Updates

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP -
We first began talking about OWCP on September 29th, and at the time we had designated it a subpenny bottom-play. Our observed low that day was .0045, and the stock has never looked back as it’s gone on an absolutely epic ride since then.

We were impressed enough after seeing it run over 1500% past the seven cent mark in the first week we were tracking it, but what came next was on another level. We called for our readers to watch for a dip-and-rip off of that initial run, and that’s just what happened.

The stock reached an incredible new high of .191 yesterday, marking a surreal 4144% gain over our observed low from just three weeks ago.


GreenGro Technologies, Inc. GRNH – As we’ve been mentioning all week, cannabis plays are hot once again, and one of the latest movers in that department has been GRNH. We tagged it along with several other pot stocks that have been performing well on Tuesday. Since that time, it has traded up from .0905 to  as high as .142, a 57% pop.

From our next most recent alert on GRNH on October 4th, the move has been even more impressive (.0651-.142; 118%).

As we said, we’ll continue to have it and other marijuana stocks on close watch as we approach election day, with several states having recreational marijuana on the ballot.

We’ve also prepared a video presentation of the charts on both of these plays, which you can view by tapping the image below:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NFLX, BANC Updates & More

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Update

Our NFLX options ideas from Tuesday morning continued to provide us with excellent intraday gains to take advantage of yesterday, despite already logging moves ranging between 54-98%.  Our target range, the NFLX Weekly $117-120 Calls, once again put up fantastic performances, regardless of which strike point was chosen.

Here are the total possible gains for yesterday’s session:

$117 Calls – Range: 2.19-5.59 – Max Gain: 155%
$118 Calls – Range: 1.43-4.70 – Max Gain: 229%
$119 Calls – Range: 1.03-3.87 – Max Gain: 276%
$120 Calls – Range: 1.07-3.09 – Max Gain: 189%

We’ve had a nice two-day run with these contracts and are ready to move on to the next idea, unless we see a dip-and-rip setup on the chart, in which case they would come back into play.

Banc of California  BANC - Update

Our other options idea from yesterday also worked out in spades. We noticed that the stock had been absolutely abused on immaterial news the session prior, and took the chance to pounce with  a signal on the stock for a possible bottom play, and both short and mid-term options ideas.

Those were the BANC Weekly $12.50 and $15 Calls and the BANC 11/18 $17.50 and $20 Calls, and with the exception of the $20′s which are still too far out of the money to have seen any appreciable upswing, they all did rather well.

Weekly $12.50 Calls - Range: .55-1.40 – Max Gain: 155%
Weekly $15 Calls - Range: .05-.25 – Max Gain: 400%
11/18 $17.50 Calls – Range: .15-.35 – Max Gain: 133%

With the stock appearing to gear up for another solid session, those 11/18 $20 Calls could join the rest of the group in making moves for us in upcoming sessions, so we’ll continue to keep a close watch.

Fresh Idea – American Express Co. AXP

We’ve got another post-earnings options idea to add into the mix this morning as well with American Express, which beat expectations and raised guidance on profits for the remainder of 2016. Accordingly, we’re going to want to track AXP Weekly $64-65.50 Calls.

Cannabis Stock Updates

Cannabis Science, Inc. CBIS – CBIS continued to push to new highs after our flag of the stock on Tuesday. After running 44% that day from .034 to .0489, we saw another solid round of gains yesterday. The stock traded in a range from .049 to .077, for a 57% intraday run and an overall increase of 126% over Tuesday’s low.


IMD Companies, Inc. ICBU – Also among the marijuana stocks that we’ve slated for observation was this one that was new to our reports yesterday, and put up a pretty good move for our first day of observance.

ICBU traded up from a morning low of .0039 and surged to .0056, for an intraday pop of 44%

Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. PLPL

Being added to the watchlist this morning is PLPL, as a momentum play. The stock has been on the move over the past couple of sessions, having cracked through key resistance points on heavy volume. If it can breach the 200DMA of .045, things could get even more interesting from here.

We’ll remain interested in this play provided it can hold support at or above .03 on any pullbacks.
