It was just yesterday morning that we commenting on our coverage of SODE, the subject of a special report we did two weeks ago, at which time the stock was trading for as little as .10.

We didn’t have to wait for new highs to come rolling in- SODE once again pushed its upper limits and attained a high of .27, marking an overall two-week upswing of 170% It traded with volatility as well, providing not one but four separate intraday swings, as you can see on the intraday chart below.

On Friday morning, we selected a pair of contracts in the PSMT options chain, and we want to start off this new trading week by updating our readers on the excellent progress those calls made.

Our targets were the PSMT 04/20 $80 & $85 Calls and some very nice intraday gains were posted on both counts. The $80 Calls made their way from a low of 5.12 up to 10.98 for a move of 114% while The $85′s traded up from  2.50 to 6.70, marking a 168% rip.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RKDA Explodes & More

Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. RKDA

We originally put RKDA on our radars toward the end of January, but in the ensuing weeks, the stock mainly traded sideways.

This week, both Tuesday morning and yesterday, we included it on our watchlist once again as we noticed it was finally building up some momentum. Yesterday that momentum turned into an absolute explosion as RKDA blasted off to an astounding new high.

Just since Tuesday morning it has traded from a low of 11.17 to a new high of 54.9895 yesterday. That’s a two day swing of 370% and a mind numbing increase of 1244% over the 4.09 low we observed subsequent to our initial mention!


Valeant Pharma International, Inc. VRX

On Monday morning, we tagged the VRX Weekly $15 & $15.50 Calls, and after finding success with those as VRX continued to move, yesterday we expanded our target range to include the $16 and $16.50′s  as well. After another bullish session, all of those ideas produced opportunities for big gains.

The $15′s from our observed low on Monday of .65, hit 2.21 for a gain of 240%, while the $15.50′s, from .30 reached 1.73, an increase of 477%

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: HMNY, SANP Review & More

Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We began tracking HMNY closely on September 20th, and since that time it’s been nothing but blue sky breakout for the stock ever since. On that morning we observed a low of 5.47, and it’s never looked back.

To kick off the week yesterday HMNY soared to an astonishing new high of 23.49, marking a 329% increase in a span of less than three weeks. Volume has also been coming in far above anything the stock saw prior to September.


Santo Mining Corp. SANP

We decided to tag SANP in yesterday morning’s premarket report after noticing the manifestation of some unusual trading activity over the course of last week. It ended up being a solid idea to start of this week, with the stock making a very convincing move to the upside.

From a low of .0013, SANP reached as high as .0021, marking an intraday push of 62%, with the better part of a billion shares changing hands on the day. It was the third consecutive session in which the stock registered higher lows and higher highs, and we’ll be in the lookout for a continuation of that pattern.


Cleantech Solutions International, Inc. CLNT

Another inclusion in yesterday’s report was CLNT, which ran pretty hard early on in the session with the help of a PR alluding to a possible acquisition (>>View PR).

The stock made a move from a low of 5.70 to a high of 8.25- a respectable 45% pop. CLNT ultimately ended up trading an incredible 330X its monthly average volume. While it didn’t maintain at least half of its daily gains into the close, with volume like that, we’ll be sure to keep a slot on our watchlists open for CLNT.


MannKind Corp. MNKD

We saw a pullback in MNKD Friday after a solid move, and we signaled some options calls, MNKD 10/20 $5.50 & $6.00, that pullback gave a great potential entry point. This morning in the premarket, MNKD is gapping up past the $6 mark, pushing the strike prices we targeted into the money.

Its always a good idea to lock in some profits on a gap up, in case a stock decides to pull back. In the event we see do a pullback in this case, we may look to take advantage of the dip by re-entering the position.

MNKD has one of our favorite chart patterns- when the 50DMA breaks above the 200DMA, known as a “Golden Cross”. Stocks tend to breakout when this occurs so we definitely want to continue to track this idea going forward.
