Genesis Healthcare, Inc. GEN – Bottom Watch

We would like to place GEN on bottom watch this morning, after taking notice of the chart setup on our routine scan this morning.

As you can see from the included snapshot, we have a number of factors contributing to the stock’s attractive bottom setup. The stock has been falling sharply all week, cruising down toward its 200DMA at an alarming rate. Additionally, we have a MACD which is exhibiting unsustainable downward divergence, and an RSI indicating the stock has just entered extremely oversold territory.

This is exactly the sort of setup we look for in potential bottom bounce plays, and we’re going to slot GEN for observation in coming sessions to be ready for that eventuality.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Ideas

BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Inc. BMRN

BioMarin had a really solid performance yesterday after we signaled some contracts in our premarket report, the BMRN 03/16 $80 & 85 Calls. The stock ran from 81.01 to 84.19 facilitating some modest but solid intraday moves in our contracts.

The $80 Calls ran from 4.40-6.00 for a 32% rise, and the $85′s traded from 2.70-3.50, a gain of 26%

With a strong close at 83.28, and a lot of ground to cover to recoup the losses the stock has seen in the month of February, we’ll look for BMRN to establish a more sustained recovery pattern, and we may see some further increases in these contracts, which still have over a month until expiration.


Under Armour, Inc. UAA

We want to formulate an idea for Under Armour on the heels of the company’s earnings report this morning. The stock had already begun to trend off of its bottom a few sessions ago, and despite posting a Q4 loss, sales were better than expected and the stock is gapping up pretty significantly here in the premarket.

We’re going to want to keep tabs on the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls, which could bring us sizable gain opportunities in the day or days to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Revisiting TASR & More

TASER International, Inc. TASR

We’ve been tracking TASR since late November, and the stock has gained a good bit of ground over the last month, so we wanted to touch base and update readers on its performance so far. December 1st was the day we witnessed the low on TASR with the stock touching 20.79 during that session, and it hasn’t looked back yet.

Continuing orders from police agencies for TASER’s body-worn video cameras has fueled quite a run, as  the stock managed to break to new highs since we’ve been paying attention on Friday, despite the holiday-shortened week. TASR ran as high as 27.65, which, from the low we observed roughly one month ago, represents an increase of 33% It also puts the stock effectively in blue skies, trading as high as it has in ten years.

We like the trajectory TASR is on, with current events seeming to support a case for the stock going even higher. Amid growing calls for more law enforcement accountability from both the public and the agencies themselves, during a time when incidents between citizens and officials appear to be reaching critical levels, TASR is positioned perfectly to capitalize on the fallout. As we’ve mentioned before, TASER is a trusted name in law enforcement and the public arena, and thus a natural choice for technology that promises to create more transparency in local police departments. It makes it a story that we’re likely to follow over the long-term.



General Employment Enterprises, Inc. JOB

JOB has been on quite a run lately, coming up from the .20-range earlier this month, and we’re going to be monitoring the stock as we kick off another split-week. Over the past several sessions, JOB has pushed its way into blue sky breakout mode, and we’re going to be on the lookout for a continuation of the significant momentum that has been building in the stock.

At a certain point, profit-taking should begin to peel JOB back a bit, and so we’ll also be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip when that pullback leads to an eventual bounce.


American Apparel, Inc. APP

The last time we mentioned APP roughly a week back after seeing nearly 100% in gains, we gave the prices at which we wanted to see support hold as the .85-1.00 range. The stock has managed to maintain above a dollar for the most part, and we wanted to give it another nod this morning, and remind people that it still remains on our watchlist.

There seems to be a Golden Cross setting up on the chart, another reason why we want to establish a close watch over this play. Additionally, last year around this time and from roughly this price range, APP began a three-month run that brought it to well over two dollars. This has traditionally been a seasonal play for us, so we’re always open to the possibility of history repeating itself.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Update on AAPL & Extended Watchlist

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options

On Friday, our morning report contained a blurb in which we stated we’d be “hot on the trail of potential gains in the Apple options chain”, and we certainly hope folks got in on some of the action that ensued. We have been following AAPL quite heavily since our report on Wed. the 14th, wherein we commented on the Apple-Beats buyout rumor.

AAPL stock tore out of the gate, bulling its way up all day to more than $614 just prior to the close. As a result, the options contracts we were following in the $605-610 range steadily ramped up in price over the course of the session.

As you can see on the graphic below, some truly notable gains were possible for anyone trading these contracts. The daily ranges on these things were quite impressive:

$605 Calls – Day’s Range: 2.15-9.76 – Max Gain: 354%

$607 Calls – Day’s Range: .83-7.13 – Max Gain: 759%

$610 Calls – Day’s Range: .25-4.70 – Max Gain: 1780%

It really wouldn’t have mattered which Calls you were into on Friday- traders literally could have thrown a dart at a board filled with contracts and come up with a winner!

AAPL continued to press upward this morning, as the stock has traded as high as the 618.90′s in pre-market activities. Now that it has broken well above the previous resistance point of $607.33, that’s the level we’d like to see hold as support in the event of any pullbacks.

Other stocks that had significant gains in the options calls from last week that we want to continue to monitor this week include: DDD, TSLA, GOGO, DDD & FEYE



Side Note:

Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. TTDZ now trading as:
Green Cures & Botanical Distribution Inc. GRCU

TTDZ, a stock that has given us many chances to profit in 2014, finally underwent the name and symbol change that we had been anticipating, becoming GRCU.

If you recall, this play was one of the largest runners we encountered during the “green rush” earlier this year. We caught it at a low of .0012 on January 30th, and subsequently rode it to a high of .049 in early April. For anyone without a calculator handy, that equates to a staggering move of 3983% in just over two months time! It’s hard not to call that one of our biggest successes of the year so far.

The company has also gone live with a new website that you can find @ http://gcbdinc.com/

We’re going to begin monitoring this, and other marijuana related plays more heavily in coming weeks. As many of you will remember, we’re anxiously awaiting the start of legal sales in Washington State, presently slated for mid-July. It could very well provide the cannabis sector with another swell of interest and buying, much like the beginning of sales in Colorado did back in January, which of course sparked one of the most monumental sector surges the penny markets have ever seen.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GBGM & Fresh News Plays

Global Gaming Network, Inc. GBGM

After undergoing consolidation in recent sessions, GBGM has made its way down to find support at .0012, where it has begun to bounce.

This is a stock that was trading over half a penny as recently as late March, so we’ll want to stay open to the possibility that a bounceback from these low levels could produce notable gains.

The RSI is currently looking extremely oversold, while accumulation and distribution is on a steady upswing, so we believe that monitoring this play for a possible recovery could yield results in upcoming sessions.

Today, following the stock’s first green candle in six trading days, we’ll be on the lookout for GBGM to make higher lows and higher highs, which would confirm that it has begun to trend off of its bottom.


Fresh News Plays

The following stocks have news out this morning, that we felt was worthy of passing along:

Merrimack Pharmceuticals, Inc. MACK

We’ve highlighted MACK in the past, and were pleased to see that company has come out with news today outlining the positive clinical progress of its pancreatic cancer treatment trials, as well as releasing its Q1 financials, and filing an 8-K. We’ll provide links to all of these developments here:

Fuelstream, Inc. FLST

In addition to this morning’s news, FLST boasts a tight share structure (updated recently), and is currently trading near a bottom on on the chart. A turnaround from here could get really interesting, so we’ll be anxious to see how this play responds in coming sessions.

SUNRISE, FL–(Marketwired – May 1, 2014) – Fuelstream, Inc. (OTCQB: FLST) (“Fuelstream” or the “Company”), a international reseller of Aviation Jet fuel, is pleased to announce the official launch of a new website that will allow clients to access fuel pricing and other information on a real-time basis. >>> FULL PR
