Blue Horseshoe Stocks: News Plays & Special Reminder

Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

AEZS is gapping up this morning on the heels of some news. It’s been quite a few months since we last mentioned this stock. That was back in the fall, and we subsequently witnessed quite a surge from the stock after that.

Since then, so far in 2017 the stock has come down to record new annual lows, and recently has been making incremental increases off of that bottom. In light of today’s news, described below, we think it’s a good time to put AEZS back on a more intensive watch.

The company announced this morning, following a comprehensive review Phase 3 clinical data on Macrilen™ for the evaluation of growth hormone deficiency, that Macrilen™ demonstrated performance supportive of achieving registration with the FDA. The FDA has agreed to consider the Company’s conclusions during a Type A meeting, which is currently being scheduled. (>>View PR)


Zosano Pharma Corp. ZSAN

Speaking of fresh news plays, we also want to highlight the announcement coming from ZSAN this morning that presently has the stock gapping up in the premarket to the tune of 50%

This morning ZSAN reported that in its ZOTRIP pivotal efficacy study, the company’s M207 transdermal migraine therapy patch met both primary, as well as secondary endpoints. It certainly explains the premarket hoopla, and warrants our observation as we kick off a new trading week.

The chart also has some attractive features which we’ve pointed out on the snapshot below:


**SPECIAL REMINDER**

To wrap things up this morning, we want to leave our readers with a quick heads up on a big Tuesday coming up. We’ve got a special report coming out tomorrow prior to the opening bell. It could represent quite an opportunity, so tomorrow is definitely not the day to miss out on our premarket report!

Be sure to stay locked onto your email inboxes or BlueHorseshoeStocks.com tomorrow between 9:00 to 9:15AM, and lean on those refresh buttons!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Momentum Plays & More

Top Ships, Inc. TOPS

We are going to place TOPS on bottom-bounce watch this morning. Yesterday the stock held in there just above its 50DMA, and recent support levels. Earlier this summer, the stock shot up exponentially so the ability to make drastic moves to the upside is present.

We’re going to throw TOPS on the radar and will remain interested in tracking its progress provided it holds above its recent swing low of 3.67. As you can see on the included chart snapshot, the MACD appears to be converging toward an impending bullish cross, to that will be a signal to watch for as well.


Northwest Biotherapeutics, Inc. NWBO

Here’s a stock that has had a whirlwind couple of sessions this week, breaking a long pattern of consolidation with two extremely bullish sessions.

We’re going to want to place NWBO on watch as a possible momentum play on the chance that it continues this multi-day run. As long as it can maintain support above yesterdays low which coincides with the 50DMA at .43, we’ll be watching for more solid intraday moves.


Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK

We began tracking AGTK at the beginning of August (08/02), and most recently reminded readers about the stock yesterday morning.

What followed was a nice intraday pop, and new overall high as it ran from .0026 to .0035, for a 35% swing. From the .0013 low we observed just after our initial alert on the play last month, yesterday’s high represented a total increase of 169%

It both cracked and held above its 200DMA into the close and the RSI just managed to breach into the power zone. We’ll be anxious to continue tracking its progress moving forward following these bullish signals.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Season Continues to Yield Results

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT – Update

We caught SRPT yesterday after the stock had just registered a new annual low on Tuesday, and recognized an opportunity to pounce on some short-term gains using the options chain. We said we wanted to see the stock flirt with the swing high from the previous session, and it did just that. Our options idea of tracking the SRPT Weekly $10.50 and $11 Calls worked out immediately.

We witnessed a range on the $10.50′s from .40-1.35 (+237%) and from .39-1.01 on the $11′s, an intraday pop of 159% But those big gains are going to pale in comparison to the new highs we’re going to witness this morning as the stock has gapped up with vigor in the premarket this morning to a new high of 14.40.

In the stock itself, that’s an impressive overnight swing of 38% and as we said, those options contracts are sure to show us new highs as things get going today. All in all we’d have to say that we made a heck of a bottom call on SRPT, and will continue to track its progress.


Options – More Updates, More Ideas

We also want to follow up with the Idea we had from earlier in the week, the BP Weekly $32-33.50 Calls, which already provided us gains ranging from 30-95% on Tuesday. There were intraday profits to be made for the second straight day, which were as follows:

$32 Calls – Trading Range: 1.55-1.88 – Max Gain: 21%
$32.50 Calls – Trading Range: 1.10-1.40 – Max Gain: 27%
$33 Calls– Trading Range: .62-1.06 – Max Gain: 71%
$33.50 Calls – Trading Range: .35-.57 – Max Gain: 63%

We had a good two-day run with BP, but with Q1 earnings season in full swing, its time to turn our attention to the next opportunity.

That’s going to come in the form of Facebook Inc. FB options. The stock is gapping up to new all-time highs at the moment in the wake of its own earning beat, currently trading over $121 in the premarket.

Provided it holds support at the previous all-time high of 117.59 on any pullbacks, we are going to want to pay close attention to the FB Weekly $118-122 Calls. If the momentum appears strong enough, we may even consider rolling up our strike price to the $123-level and higher, as the situation dictates.


Others to Watch

Finally, we have a couple of other plays to add to a watchlist this morning. Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS, and Immune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IMNP.

We first began tracking AEZS in 2016 in late January, shortly before witnessing a low of 2.71 (02/11). The stock has made a couple of nice moves in recent months, and is currently gapping up in the premarket to new high 4.87. That represents an 80% over our observed low from a few months back. We’ll have our eye on its activity as things kick off this morning.

In the case of IMNP, we’ve got a stock that has seen a good deal of insider buying, and is trying to maintain an uptrend off of its recent lows over the past few sessions. It’s gapping up slightly this morning to .43, so we’re going to want to watch for a break of the current 50DMA of .46 today.

We also want to pay attention to Dreamworks Animation SKG Inc. DWA which we signaled in yesterday’s report over buyout talks that were occurring. The buyout has been confirmed, so hold on to your hats if you made entry at yesterday’s prices!

Options Updates

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF

We had very good fortune with most of the ANF options contracts we signaled in yesterday morning’s premarket report following an earnings beat.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

We also want to give a quick update on another extended-term idea we had recently. On Tuesday, we submitted PBR 04/01 $4 Calls for observation, and those have made a run from .13-.25 (+92%) as PBR has traded up from 3.55 to 4.13.

We expect the figures on those gains to keep rising today as PBR has advanced as high as 4.39 thus far in the premarket. We’ll be sure to stay on the trail of those contracts, with nearly a month left on the contracts before expiration. We’ll also keep an eye on the $4 and 4.50 Weekly Calls. Of course, we’ll look to roll our strike prices up if the situation dictates.



Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

AEZS is a familiar play that we’d like to touch base with again this morning after noticing some interesting chart activity. The stock broke its 50DMA during yesterday’s trading session and is presently trending up in the premarket, testing resistance in the $4-area. The next area of resistance comes in at 5.18, where a gap on the chart begins, and extends up to the 6.50 level.

We’ve prepared a snapshot below which outlines the highlights of the current AEZS chart.



EffTec International, Inc. EFFI

EFFI is another recent mention we’d like to update our readers on this morning. After signaling EFFI in our watchlist on Friday, the stock has gone on to make a solid move. We observed a low of .0024 followed by a high of .0049, which works out to a 104% swing.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPDC Update, Options Ideas & More

Speed Commerce, Inc. SPDC

We tagged SPDC for observation in our premarket report on Friday, and what has followed is two consecutive days of upward momentum.

We observed a low of .018 on Friday morning, and a subsequent high of .0289 for an intraday gain of 61% Then yesterday the stock traded in a range from .0289 to .041, for a 42% intraday rip. All told, SPDC made an total session-over-session swing of 128% since we began tracking the stock.

We’ll continue to do so for the time being- the recovery off of recently recorded annual lows has been rapid, as can be seen on the following chart snapshot. A return to PPS-levels of just a few weeks ago would mean significant gains from the current price, so we’ll have our eyes peeled for the possibility of a continued uptrend.


Fresh Options Ideas

After poring over the earnings calendar from post-market yesterday and this morning, we came across a pair of interesting plays for which we’ll formulate a couple of correlated options ideas.

FirstMerit Corp. FMER

Despite an earnings miss this morning, FMER is flying in premarket trading on concurrent news of a $3.4B buyout/merger with Huntington Bancshares in a deal that will effectively create the state of Ohio’s largest regional bank. We’re going to tag the FMER 02/19 $17.50 and $20 Calls for potential dip-and-rip scenarios.

____

Rambus, Inc. RMBS

Regarding RMBS, we’re seeing a classic earnings-beat gap up to the tune of 7% in early trading today. Better than expected figures were released post-market yesterday, so we’ll be tracking a set of contracts here as well. Specifically, the RMBS 02/19 $12 Calls.
