Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Winners & More

Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We initially brought MARA into the fold on Thursday morning, when we highlighted it in our premarket report as a bottom-bouncer. The stock had just made a considerable move of off its recent relative lows the session prior, and looked set to continue into a multi-day run.

That certainly came to pass, with a solid performance on Thursday leading into yet another for Friday. On Thursday we observed a low of .22 and a moderate run into the .30′s but Friday, things ramped up to another level with MARA running from .24-.48 for an even 100% move on the day and a total rise of 118% over a two-day span.

That’s certainly a heck of a bottom-bouncer call. If things were to progress in a similar fashion to kick off the new trading week, today MARA could be looking at the fifty-cent range or better.


Defense Technologies International, Corp. DTII

We tagged DTII in Friday morning’s extended watchlist, and were very pleased with the solid intraday performance yielded by the play. The stock ran from a low of .0042 to as high as .0075 on the day, marking a move of 79%

The PPS pop was accompanied by a considerable influx of volume, on the order of more than six times the monthly average of shares changing hands. The past two sessions, in terms of price action and liquidity, have blown all others of the past few months out of the water, so we’re interested in seeing whether the stock can sustain this level of activity moving forward.


AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AVEO

We also tagged AVEO on Friday morning for the first time in a couple years, and the stock promptly turned around and set a new 52-week high on the day.  While the move itself was relatively modest, running 31% from 1.05 to 1.38, it did occur on mammoth volume, just a hair shy of 22X times the monthly average volume.

It did lose having held more than half of its daily advance, and is gapping up slightly in the premarket today, so we’ll definitely keep a slot reserved for AVEO on our watchscreens as we kick things off today.


Bed Bath and Beyond, Inc. BBBY – Options Recap

We went bearish on Bed Bath & Beyond on Friday with a set of options contracts to follow in the wake of their disappointing quarterly results, and it turned out to be a fantastic idea.

Our targets were the BBBY Weekly $31.50-30.50 Puts and regardless of which strike point was chosen, sizable gains were there for the taking:

$31.50 Puts – Range: 1.07-2.07 – Max Gain: 93%
$31 Puts – Range: .64-1.58 – Max Gain: 147%
$30.50 Puts – Range: .31-1.05 – Max Gain: 239%


Adobe Systems Inc. ADBE – Options Recap

We signaled some options for the ADBE chain on Wednesday, and the stock finished the week strong, and we witnessed some nice gains there as well. We were looking at the ADBE 06/30 $147 & $148 Calls, and both ideas have worked out nicely thus far.

The $147′s traded up from .35-.62 (+77%) while the $148′s ran from .17-.35 (+106%). Granted the nature of Friday’s session for ADBE, and these contracts not expiring until the end of this week, we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see these gains extended before it’s all said and done.

Blue Horsesehoe Stocks: New Highs on DCTH & More

Delcath Systems, Inc. DCTH

We brought DCTH back into the fold in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and it wasn’t a moment too soon. We mentioned our prior alert on the stock from last Monday. after which we would see a low of .0413 and subsequent run to a dime leading into yesterday’s session.

Then things really kicked into motion, with DCTH ripping its way from a daily low of .1037 all the way up to a whopping thirty cents! That worked out to an intraday bull run of 189% and extended our overall observed range from last Tuesday’s low to a mammoth 626%

That range has been extended even further to 745% in the premarket this morning as DCTH has hit a new high of .349. Unsurprisingly, volume over this period of huge gains has also been extremely heavy. We’ll continue to monitor DCTH in the hopes that it can sustain this fantastic multi-day run.



Vivint Solar, Inc. VSLR

In addition to including a remind tag on VSLR in yesterday’s report, we initially alerted this play on May 18th, and it’s been nothing but smooth sailing since then, en route to some pretty nice gains.

On the morning of the 18th VSLR touched a low of 2.75 and it never looked back. Yesterday, it managed a new high of 5.30, which represents a move of 93% over the course of roughly a month’s time. The sudden extra boost it received this week coul be due, in part, to a Goldman Sachs upgrade from Neutral to Buy on the stock and the raising of the price target to $6.


Adobe Systems Inc. ADBE – Options Idea

Adobe had its Q2 earnings call yesterday post-market, and blew expectations on the Street out of the water. As a result the stock is gapping up considerably this morning in the premarket, and we’d like to have an options idea ready and waiting to take advantage of the commotion.

We’ll radar the ABDE 06/30 $147 & $148 Calls and track them over the remainder of this week and possibly into the next.

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: Huge Options Wins & Much More


Options Updates

We targeted a range of options calls in both FedEx and Adobe yesterday, as both stocks were showing good premarket activity on the heels of their earnings reports. It illustrated perfectly why we’re always formulating post-earnings options ideas.

FDX Weekly $165-170 Calls
$165
– Range: 5.35-9.00 – Max Gain: 68%
$167.50 – Range: 3.16-6.71 – Max Gain: 112%
$170 – Range: 1.42-4.18 – Max Gain: 194%

ADBE 10/21 $100-110 Calls
$100 – Range: 6.55-8.58 – Max Gain: 31%
$105 – Range: 2.80-4.21 – Max Gain: 50%
$110 – Range: .83-1.41 – Max Gain: 70%

Both stocks are gapping up again this morning, so we expect to see extended gains on these contracts today.



Recovery Play Updates

Yesterday’s session confirmed validation of all three of the bottom-bouncers  that we highlighted in Tuesday’s premarket report.

MGT Capital Investments, Inc. MGT and ACRE Realty AIII – These were both new for us on Tuesday, getting our attention as stocks that were heavily oversold after reaching new lows. As it turns out, we timed those bottoms perfectly, as you can see in the side-by-side chart snapshot below.

So far the range we’ve observed on MGT is from 1.77-2.58, a 46% rise, and in AIII, a move up from .90-1.20 (+33%). We’ll stay on their trails to watch for a continuation of these rebounds.

_____

NovaVax, Inc. NVAX -  While it did appear on our Bottom-Bounce Watchlist on Tuesday, NVAX began its own recovery when we initially brought it to the table in Monday’s report.  We’ve included a snap of this chart as well so you can see the excellent progress it’s made since then.

To this point we’ve witnessed a three day swing of  43% from 1.36-1.94. The stock closed at that high, so it too will be granted a reserved slot on our radars in coming sessions.

_____

Jammin’ Java Corp. JAMN

We alerted JAMN as a potential bottom-play last Tuesday and it too has made a solid move to the upside since then.

We saw the low come in at .0011 following that mention, and yesterday the stock reached a new high of .0025. That represents a 127% rip off of its lows in just over a week’s time.


StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. SFOR

This is a stock that we’ve been familiar with in both the distant and recent past, and we included it once again in yesterday’s report. The stock kept piling on the excellent momentum we’ve observed over the past few sessions, and ultimately set a new high for us, falling just short of breaking the penny barrier.

SFOR traded in a modest intraday range  from .008 up to .0095, a 19% increase, closing strong once again at .0094. From the low we observed following our next most recent mention of the stock  (.0036) the new high represented an overall swing of 164%

We’ll be interested to see if SFOR can maintain momentum and breach into Pennyland. The last time it came close was nearly a year ago.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NWBO Review, Options & More

Northwest Biotherapeutics, Inc. NWBO

We’ve been mentioning NWBO this week beginning on Monday, and yesterday, despite already having seen some solid gains from the stock, we were met with a second consecutive solid intraday performance.

NWBO traded in a daily range from .551 to .76, which marked a surge to the upside of 38% and from our observed low subsequent to its appearance in our morning report on Monday (.5018), yesterday’s high represented a two-day swing of 51%

We’ll continue to track the progress here, and will be anxious to see if the stock can maintain it’s multi-day runner status.


More Bottom-Watchers

Yesterday we submitted a bottom watchlist consisting of three oversold stocks that we’re going to want to keep on our radars for the possibility of an eventual rebound (MGT, AIII, NVAX). This morning, we’d like to add a couple more to that list for us to monitor in sessions ahead.

Each of the following stocks appears to be egregiously oversold, and both have just registered new 52-week lows; two key components we look for when searching for potential recovery plays.

Gordman’s Stores, Inc. GMAN

Towerstream Corp. TWER
