Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VXX Calls & More

Under Armour, Inc. UAA

Our targeted contracts for the UAA options chain worked out fairly well yesterday. We signaled the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls. As the stock gapped up and ran over $17, it facilitated the following respectable gain opportunities:

$15.50 Calls – Range: .70-1.60 – Max Gain: 128%
$16 Calls – Range: .57-1.25 – Max Gain: 119%
$16.50 Calls – Range: .35-.85 – Max Gain: 143%

We’ll look for UAA to re-test its 200DMA as it did yesterday to potentially bring further chances, but as it stands, our ideas worked out very well for a single-session play yesterday, so we’re pleased with our calls either way.


iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures ETN (VXX) – More Options Ideas

There’s been quite a bit of turbulence in the markets as a whole recently, and this morning it appears as if we could be headed for another down day. If that is indeed the case, we’re going to set ourselves up with a new idea that could produce immediately.

The VXX trades inversely to the markets, so a backslide could effect significant chances to profit through the options chain. We’re going to put a tag on the VXX Weekly $46-50 Calls We’re going to want to look at the SPY as an indicator, and if it falls below 262.62, we’ll be actively tracking these VXX Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NEPT Review & More

Neptune Technology & Bioresources, Inc. NEPT

To start off the new calendar year on a high note, we’d like to track back to a stock we placed on our radars on the morning of November 28th, and recap the solid bullish performance that followed.

NEPT has been in a general uptrend ever since our alert, and is showing a strong sign that it may continue. Subsequent to our initial report, we observed a low of 1.30 in the stock, and as of the new high achieved to close out last week at 2.44. it marked an increase of 88%

We’ll continue to observe this stock, and will want to see it maintain support at or above the 2.20-area on any pullbacks.


INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY

We formulated an options trading idea for the INSY 01/19 $8 and $9 Calls on Wednesday morning, and on Friday. mentioned that despite only moderate gains in the previous session, that we’d still be looking for our opportunity to come along.

Friday’s session facilitated some solid moves in our highlighted contracts, and current conditions suggest we could see an extension to the already significant gains that were there for the taking to close out the 2017 trading year.

The $8 Calls ran from .90-2.27, for a gain of 152%, while the $9′s traded up from .60 to 1.51, which works out to a 151% move.

INSY has traded as high as 10.25 in premarket trading today, and we will look to roll up our strike price to the $10-level if the stock holds above this morning’s premarket low of  9.75 once the session gets rolling.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WATT Recap & More

Energous Corp. WATT

On our premarket watchlists for both Wednesday and yesterday morning, has been WATT, which received some exciting news this week.

The company revealed that the FCC has granted consumer safety certification for its wireless charging technology, marking the first FCC approval for remote wireless charging, and opening the door to commercialization.

Its applications are plentiful, and the potential is high, and it’s showing on the chart. On Wednesday morning following our alert, the stock was trading for as little as 15.30, and at its high of day yesterday, the stock had reached 33.50. That represented a two-session swing of 119% as it set new all-time highs for volume two days in a row.

We will be very interested to continue tracking the story behind this huge turn of events for WATT.


Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We also would like to recap HMNY’s performance yesterday. We tagged this one as a bottom play and ended up timing the bounce with absolute precision.

The stock had been in an overall downtrend since the end of November, and yesterday, began what could be just the start of a more sustained recovery.

HMNY traded up from a low of 5.45 and went on to reach a high of 6.98, for a modest but respectable increase of 28% on the day. It happened on roughly three times the monthly average volume, and closed near the high of day, so we’ll definitely be on the lookout for momentum carryover.



INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY

Just a quick reminder about the options idea we had for INSY recently. We already reported the solid gains we’ve witnessed in the INSY 01/19 $8 and $9 Calls on Wednesday morning, but given the current conditions on the chart, we’ll want to keep an eye peeled for further bullish activity in those contracts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Pot Stocks Heating Up Again

Pot Stocks Still Heating Up

We have literally never stopped pounding the table on our interest in marijuana related stocks for more than five years now. While we cover something in the space practically every day, occasionally we sense a greater trend coming for the sector as a whole and issue reminders to our readers accordingly. The last such post, we published on November 9th, reminding our audience that we expected a resurgence heading into 2018, which figures to be a huge year for cannabis based business in general.

We gave a list of a handful of the symbols we routinely track which included MJNA, TRTC, MJTK, AGTK, GRNH, HEMP, ACBFF, APHQF,  TWMJF, and CBIS.

GRNH and CBIS are have always been two of our favorites, although as we said, the sector as a whole will continue to be a major point of focus for us going forward. GRNH. since November 7th, has trended up from a low of .0341 to a high of .072; an increase of 111% Meanwhile, CBIS, in the same span has run from .0311 to .11, for a big 254% rise.

Some of the other fantastic moves to come out of that watchlist are as follows:

MJTK – .0005-.0028 – 460%
APHQF – 6.14-13.75 – 124%
AGTK – .0099-.0415 – 319%
ACBFF – 2.77-6.86 – 148%

These are just to name a few. Our docket of cannabis plays that we follow regularly is far too large to update all in one report, but once again, we’re going to be placing a high amount of focus on everything pot related heading into and throughout 2018.


Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. APDN

We also would like to highlight APDN, a stock that has an interesting bottom setup on the chart. As you can see on the included snapshot, the PPS has been beaten back to its lowest levels since this summer, and are hovering around a solid support level.

Couple that with the company being slated for a post-market earnings report, and we’ll be interested in tracking the activity in APDN at least through the remainder of this short week, and possibly into the upcoming short week as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Commentary & More

NeoPhotonics Corp. NPTN

We’re always bargain hunting for stocks that have been recently beaten back to what appear to be unsustainably low levels, and we’re observing one heck of a double bottom setup on NPTN at the present time.

Twice now the stock has touched and rebounded off of the mid-$4 range, with the annual low coming in at 4.56. We’re going to want to place NPTN on watch in sessions to come and look for the stock to establish higher levels of support.



Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX

It’s been awhile since we had a look at VRX, and as it turns out, this is another stock that looks ready to start a trend off of a recent relative low.

VRX is gapping up considerably into the $14-range this morning on the heels of a solid earnings beat. We’re going to signal a range of options contracts to watch for some possible dip-and-rip activity. This is just the type of setup we routinely look for, and we’ll be tracking the VRX Weekly $13-14 Calls for the remainder of the week.



Cannabis Commentary

It has been a slow year in general for many domestic cannabis stocks, due, at least in part, to a DOJ led by outspoken marijuana opponent Jeff Sessions. It has created an environment of uncertainty pertaining to the federal government’s likelihood of creating problems for marijuana businesses, even in states where voters have officially spoken and legalized the plant. The marijuana movement is here to stay, but at present, is dealing with this roadblock of sorts.

That doesn’t mean our interest in the sector has diminished. In fact, we’re as exuberant about the future of the cannabis industry as we ever were. North of the Border, Canadians will enact a nationwide end to prohibition just 8 months from now.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, which was formed by the International Olympic Committee to police the use of performance enhancing drugs in athletics, also recently removed Cannabidiol (CBD) from its list of banned substances, opening up a huge market for the hemp-derived product.

Here are just a few of the cannabis plays that we track on a regular basis, and will continue to do so as we head into 2018, which we feel is going to be a big year for the industry and all of its subsectors. Maybe the biggest one yet!
