Blue Horseshoe Stocks: USRM, TSLA Updates & More

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

On Wednesday morning, we followed up with USRM after tracking it over a 289% rip subsequent to our alert on the play on February 27th. The stock had come down quite a bit off of those highs, and started to take on the appearance of a possible bottom-play. We mentioned the need to “return to monitoring this play more closely on the chance that it could be gearing up for another run.

It did find its bottom and it most certainly was gearing up for another run, which took up the entirety of yesterday’s session. The stock traded in a range from .0181 to .03, for a solid intraday rip of 66%, nearly all of which was held into a strong close .0289.

That type of blatantly bullish activity warrants continued close observation of USRM as we close out the week.


Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Update

Just yesterday, we identified TSLA as being ripe for a recovery, citing the TSLA 04/07 $270-277.50 Calls as our targets of interest. It was another solid options trading idea for us, with every single set of contracts in the range providing opportunities for solid single-session gains.

$270 Calls – Range: 3.37-6.65 – Max Gain: 97%
$272.50 Calls – Range: 2.77-5.35 – Max Gain: 93%
$275 Calls – Range: 2.52-4.70 – Max Gain: 87%
$277.50 Calls – Range: 1.93-3.85 – Max Gain: 99%

We also could see more bullish activity out of these plays, which we chose to hopefully take advantage of a more extended-term recovery for TSLA.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JNUG Recap & Much More

Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF  (JNUG) – Recap

Despite only providing a fleeting opportunity for gains on Tuesday morning after we submitted our options trading idea for the JNUG chain, we followed up with a reminder in yesterday’s report that the idea was still in play, and that we’d need to keep our heads on a swivel looking out for the move we were hoping for.

With the help of a Fed rate hike of a quarter of a percentage point, announced by Chairperson Janet Yellen yesterday, our specified contracts, the JNUG 03/31 $7-8 Calls took a serious turn for the better.

The daily ranges and potential profits were as follows:

$7 Calls – Range: .40-1.40 – Max Gain: 250%
$7.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.00 – Max Gain: 186%
$8 Calls – Range: .20-.87 – Max Gain: 335%

Once again, we’re going to reiterate our interest in these ideas, which could be in line to extend their highs, with JNUG gapping up in early trading this morning.


Aralez Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ARLZ

We placed ARLZ on bottom watch yesterday morning in what turned out to be a fantastic stroke of good timing. We just wanted to update readers this morning on the reversal which did indeed occur during the session. While the intraday gain potential topped out at 25% as the stock ran from the open (and also low of day) at 2.11 to as much as 2.63.

The inverted hammer candle that the stock posted yesterday is often thought to be an indicator of the end of a downward pattern, so we’ll be very interested to continue tracking ARLZ in sessions to come. Chart indicators are still looking very ripe, and we’d be surprised if the show was over after just a 25% rise.


Cannabis Sector Comments

Lastly, we just want to address the cannabis sector, particularly those stocks that are connected to legal recreational marijuana. After some very damaging comments made recently by the Trump Administration wherein it was suggested that the government could crack down on legal weed, yesterday we witnessed something of a reversal from Jeff Sessions.

Sessions appeared to hint at insufficient DOJ funding as a primary reason that perhaps the current regime will not be changing Obama-era guidance on leaving the treatment of recreational weed as a states’ rights issue.

On the heels of this development, we’re going to want to keep closer tabs on the cannabis sector once again, particularly those plays that lost a lot of ground after the first round of comments from Washington.

Some of our go-to favorites in the space have been OWCP, TRTC, SING, SGDH, CBIS, and MJNA, so we’ll be tracking these more closely in the days and weeks ahead, along with the sector as a whole, as stated above.


Fresh Options Idea:

The TSLA chart is looking ripe for a recovery, and the stock is gapping up moderately in premarket trading this morning. We want to signal a range of calls to monitor in the TSLA chain to potentially take advantage of what could be a protracted recovery. We’re going to zero in on the TSLA 04/07 $270-277.50 Calls, and monitor them in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Potential Bottom-Plays & More


Potential Rebound Plays

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM  -We caught USRM for some nice gain opportunities a couple of weeks back. We had initially begun tracking this play after mentioning it on the morning of February 27th. Subsequent to that, we had witnessed an impressive run from a low of .014  to .0545, for a 289% gain in a span of just two sessions.

That was followed by an expected period of consolidation, but it appears as if USRM has found support at .0175. We’re going to want to return to monitoring this play more closely on the chance that it could be gearing up for another run. If it produced a move even a fraction of what we saw before, it will be worth its slot on our watchscreens.

______

Iconic Brands, Inc. ICNB – Speaking of familiar plays that could be in line for a rebound in upcoming sessions, we want to swing back around to ICNB this week. We had tracked this one to some decent gains after tagging it for observation on January 24th. Following that, the stock would trade in a range from .018 up to .0339, a respectable move of 88%

But like the above-mentioned stock, after its run, it basically underwent a big-time consolidation which lasted nearly a whole month. That brings us up to yesterday, when we noticed ICNB giving off something of a rebound signal. We’ll go back to watching more closely in the next few sessions.


Aralez Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ARLZ – Bottom Watcher

ARLZ has been falling off a cliff this week, and despite the fact that it may yet have further to fall, we’re going to want to begin monitoring it as it attempts to sniff out a solid support level. There could definitely be some opportunities waiting for traders that can properly time the recovery.



Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF  (JNUG) – Reminder

Apart from some quick chances for early gains yesterday, our freshly formulated options idea for JNUG may need some time to mature. That’s why we chose an expiration date a couple of weeks out. We’ll continue to have the JNUG 03/31 $7-8 Calls on our radars moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Several Key Updates

Intercloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

In yesterday’s report kicking off the new trading week, we backtracked to our alert of ICLD coming in our report from two Thursday’s ago, at which time the stock was trading at a low of .0157.

We mentioned how it had risen exponentially since that report, and specifically cautioned our readers to track its movements closely right from yesterday’s opening bell. The strength of the ICLD close on Friday was simply too strong to ignore and despite already having spiked considerably for us up to that point, the stock turned in another fantastic intraday performance.

From an early low of .05, the stock ran all the way to .0869 during the course of a session where it steadily climbed all day long and closed near its high. That marked an intraday boost of 74% and and an overall move up of 340% from our observed low from Thursday the 2nd,

Once again, with the intensely bullish close to another session, we’re going to have our eyes peeled for further moves from ICLD, whether they come in the form of a continued push upward, or are preceded by a dip-and-rip pattern off of these impressive highs.


Ciber, Inc. CBR

Prior to yesterday, CBR had been stuck in a rut for quite some time, but we noticed some abnormal premarket activity and decided to include it in yesterday’s report. It was a good idea, with CBR running from .4329 to .65, which works out to a 50% intraday pop.

The move came in conjunction with the company announcement that it was mulling over an unsolicited offer to be acquired through merger by Ameri Holdings, Inc. (AMRH) which values it at .75/share of CBR stock.

Given that the stock is still trading in the low .60′s at present, we’ll be interested to continue to monitor its progress as the company deliberates the merger offer.


More Key Updates

Cerulean Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CERU - We began tracking CERU just over a month ago, and after an extended period of slow and steady increases, finally yesterday the stock broke out in a more significant manner.

Our initial alert on CERU came on the 3rd of February, at which time the stock was trading at a low of 1.11. Yesterday the stock streaked to an impressive new high of 2.65, which comes out to a total upswing of 139%

______

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AUPH -  AUPH is another stock we’ve been tracking for much of 2017 so far that also broke to new highs yesterday. We witnessed a low of 2.95 in AUPH subsequent to our alert on the stock dated January 27th. Gradual increases over the next month would occur, and since we’ve hit the month of March, the stock has been going haywire.

Yesterday AUPH soared to (and closed at) 10.54 which represents a total move of 257% in less than six weeks!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ICLD, CATB Recaps & More

Intercloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

We caught ICLD coming off of its bottom, and tagged the stock in our report from two Thursday’s ago on the 2nd. Subsequent to that, we would witness a low of .0157 in the stock, and since then it has been one big bullish run that led to an impressive new high on Friday.

We’ve stayed with it each step of the way as it rose from that .0157 low to Friday’s top mark of .0465. That works out to a fantastic move of 196% which occurred over a period of just seven trading sessions.

The sheer amount of activity in the stock on Friday, with more than $6M worth of ICLD shares changing hands, coupled with the strong close has us very interested to track its movements as it leaves the starting gate this morning.

We also prepared a video presentation of the ICLD Chart and its recent movements that you can view by clicking the graphic below:


Catabasis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CATB

Speaking of catching plays coming off of their bottoms, we signaled CATB in Friday’s premarket report, noting the monster gap on its chart to the upside.

We highlighted this one just in the nick of time, as the move it made during Friday’s session ultimately provided for the filling of around three quarters of that gap. CATB ran from a low of 1.58 and went on to hit a high of 2.76, for a very respectable intraday pop of 75%

In terms of what we want to see moving forward, we’ll be looking for CATB to maintain a level of support each day higher than the previous session.

Side Note: These two winners (ICLD, CATB) from Friday’s report also happened to turn in the two top-gaining performances for the entire NASDAQ exchange for Friday’s session!



Aviragen Therapuetics, Inc. AVIR

We also want to issue a quick alert on yet another potential bottom play that appears to be perfectly primed for a rebound. As you can see plainly on the chart snapshot below, there is a sizable gap to fill to the upside, and our favorite indicators are screaming ‘bullish’ at this point.

The chances of seeing a rebound out of AVIR sooner rather than later seem quite good as we kick off another trading week.
