MannKind Corp. MNKD
We tagged MNKD a week ago today in our premarket report on May 4th, and wanted to circle back around this morning to go over the excellent performance the stock has recorded since then. At the time the stock had been looking like it wanted to rebound after crashing down to a bottom and our decision to mention it turned out to be timed perfectly.
In each of the past five sessions MNKD has registered higher highs and higher lows, continuing to gain back ground that it had lost in previous weeks. From last Thursday’s low of .688, the stock has gone on to reach a high of 1.88, which represents an increase of 173% while volume over the same period has been impressive. The stock traded its highest volume since 2014 yesterday, so we’re really eager to continue tracking the activity in MNKD.
Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX
Despite already showing us amazing single-session gains ranging from 380-3600% on Tuesday, which we recapped in yesterday’s premarket report, our options idea for the VRX chain, the Weekly $10.50-12 Calls saw even further advances once the session kicked off.
We’ve included the total possible intraday gains from yesterday’s session, as well as the overall gains from our observed lows on Tuesday morning.
$10.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.43-2.36 – Daily Gain: 65% – Total Range: .40-2.36 – Two-Day Swing: 490%
$11 Calls – Daily Range: .92-1.99 – Daily Gain: 116% – Total Range: .18-1.99 – Two-Day Swing: 1005%
$11.50 Calls – Daily Range: .53-1.42 – Daily Gain: 68% – Total Range: .08-1.42 – Two-Day Swing: 1675%
$12 Calls – Daily Range: .29-.99 – Daily Gain: 241% – Total Range: .02-.99 – Two-Day Swing: 4850%
Even though it’s not even close to our only percentage gainer in the thousands, this round of options calls with VRX is certainly going down as one of our most solid picks of the year so far. Even if someone had only bought shares in VRX stock itself, they could have been up just over 22% on this two-day swing.
Groupon, Inc. GRPN
We want to place GRPN on recovery watch after noticing the stock coming up off a double-bottom, with a gap on the chart to fill to the upside, as you can see on the included snapshot.
We like to monitor plays in this position, so we’ll put it on our radars in the days and weeks ahead. Given the look of this chart, we’d classify this as relatively low-risk, low-reward in comparison one of our average plays.
