Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Bouncers & More

Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

Things move pretty fast around here, but we do our best to keep up with tracking on all of the stocks we mention in our daily reports. In certain cases, we see slow buildup, and in others we see a quick rocket to new highs, but in the case of RIOT, we actually got both.

After we highlighted our interest in RIOT roughly two months ago on December 19th, it had been on a rather steady climb, until Friday when the lid blew off the top. Our observed low subsequent to our mention of the stock was 1.29, and Friday’s new high came in at 4.24. That’s a gain of 229% in a span of just eight weeks!


Bristow Group, Inc. BRS

We also wanted to quickly highlight a bottom-bouncer with some real potential to the upside. We ran across BRS this morning, noticing that it had just produced some activity off of a relative bottom.

There is a gap to fill on thwe chart and room to run for some potentially solid gains, so we’ll be keeping an eye peeled for that as we kick off a fresh trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADIL, AMTX Review

Adial Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ADIL

Just as we were lauding ADIL yesterday morning on its recent bucking of the terribly bearish trend that had been building for several weeks, we get that epic one day reversal and bullish surge in the markets. It was especially fortuitous timing in the case of ADIL, being that it was already up considerably. The added boost took the stock to new heights, and added considerably to the positive movement we’ve witnessed over the past couple of weeks.

At the time of our initial alert on ADIL on the morning of the 13th, we saw trades going off as low as 2.55. As of yesterday’s new high mark set at 7.45, which represents a two week upswing of 192%


Aemetis, Inc. AMTX

As for the the other mention from yesterday’s premarket report, AMTX, it too felt the effects of the huge rally in the markets, trading up from a low of .60, up as high as .97. That worked out to an intraday push of 62%

Regardless of the market conditions, we’ll have a slot on our watch screens reserved for AMTX going forward, after the company just received a considerable round of non-toxic financing to effect the execution of the next phase of its business plan.



DVB Technologies, Inc. DVBT

Among the countless stocks that have been at or near their annual lows recently, we want to highlight DVBT, to watch going forward. There is a considerable gap on the chart which the stock has been beginning to fill. The opportunity for a considerable swing trade may be present, provided that yesterday’s activity wasn’t merely an isolated event in the midst of a continued downward trajectory for the markets in general.

In addition to the stock itself, we’ll also go ahead and signal some options to watch, specifically the DVBT 05/17 $7.50 & $10 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADIL Update

Adial Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ADIL

It has been an absolutely awful end to 2018, with a market bloodbath beginning roughly six weeks ago and amounting to perhaps the worst conditions we’ve seen in a decade. Despite that fact, with most big-board stock hovering at or near their annual lows, we have still managed to find a few plays that have bucked the trend.

One such stock is ADIL, which we signaled a couple weeks back on the morning of the 13th. That day, the stock was trading for as little as 2.55 a share. It has mainly experienced bullish activity even as everything around it has been going the opposite way. On Monday ADIL reached a new high of 5.75, marking a move of 125% in a span of two weeks.


Aemetis, Inc. AMTX

If you’re searching for a bottom play, you won’t have far to look in this market, as we just mentioned above. However, among all these bottom-feeding stocks we’ve got AMTX, which has a compelling reason to perhaps begin to recover some ground.

This morning, the company announced a huge round of non-toxic funding which is going to allow it to begin implementing a key element of its strategy in the New Year. We’re going to place AMTX on watch into 2019, especially with the company having a conference call scheduled for the second week in January. Things could get interesting between now and then thanks to this morning’s news.

CUPERTINO, CA, Dec. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Aemetis, Inc. (AMTX) announced today that its subsidiary, Aemetis Biogas LLC, closed a $30 million equity investment without any dilute stock issuance by Aemetis, Inc. and funded the first $8.3 million tranche to subsidiary Aemetis Biogas to build, own and operate dairy biomethane digesters, pipelines and gas cleanup/compression facilities primarily under 20-year agreements with dairy farms in California (>>View Full PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DRI Recap & More

General Mills, Inc. GS

First up today, we are taking a look at General Mills following the company’s solid quarterly figures on earnings and profits released here in the premarket.

The stock itself has gotten badly beaten up recently, as have most stocks in what is shaping up to be a very turbulent finish to 2018. However, the strong numbers reported could be just the catalyst to effect a convincing reversal. We’re going to be waiting in the wings with our eye on the GIS Weekly $37.50 Calls to try to take advantage of the situation.


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI

We highlighted some calls in the DRI chain yesterday, the DRI Weekly $95-105 Calls. Of those three sets of contracts, we got some very nice activity from two out of the three. While the $95′s were too far in the money, the $100′s and the $105′s fared quite well.

The $100 Calls traded up from a low of 2.85 and hit an even 5.00 for a gain of 75% and the  $105′s surged from .65-1.60, producing a gain opportunity of up to 146%
