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!

MJNA, TRTC, MJTK, AGTK, GRNH, HEMP, ACBFF, APHQF,  TWMJF, CBIS, XXII,

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Updates & More

FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS

Seagate Technologies plc. STX -We’re interested in the situation with STX this morning after the company impressed with its post-market earnings report yesterday. Expectations were exceeded for revenues and earnings-per-share, while a bullish outlook for the remainder of 2017 was provided.

Our first inclination here would be to place the STX Weekly $41-43.50 Calls on watch for the rest of the week in an attempt to ride the wave of enthusiasm for the company’s impressive quarterly figures.

_____

General Electric Co. GE – GE showed signed of a possible reversal yesterday as it began to rebound off of the precipitous decline effected by Friday’s underwhelming earnings report.

The stock perhaps over-corrected with its PPS loss of more than a dollar between Friday and Monday, and we’re interested in potentially hitching a ride with some extended-term options calls.  Provided the stock doesn’t fall further than the $30-mark on any pullbacks, we’ll be tracking the GE 03/03 $30-31.50 Calls.


Heron Therapeutics, Inc. HRTX – Form-4 Alert

We always glance at the chart of a play for which there are insider buys of a significant nature, and that’s just how we’d classify the Form-4 that came in on HRTX late last week.

Director Kevin Tang executed an order for nearly $30M worth of HRTX stock at the stock’s 52-week low of 12.20, per the filing (>>View Here).

We’ll be very interested to see if that indeed was the bottom on this play, which has a relatively recent track record of making volatile swings to more than $20.


Added Note: Puration, Inc. PURA

We also want to provide a quick update as to the progress of PURA, which we initially signaled on Thursday the 12th, subsequently witnessing a low of .03.

Yesterday, despite tapering back slightly into the close, the stock did achieve new highs for us, reaching as much as .094 during the session, a new 52-week high. It extended our observed range on the play in just a few week’s time to an impressive 213%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NDEV Recap, Pot Stocks Rock & More

Novus Acquisition & Development Corp. NDEV

We were just mentioning yesterday morning how we had first begun tracking NDEV on December 12th, and had subsequently witnessed a huge 250% move to the upside from our observed low of .30 to a high of 1.05.

Some people might have figured that the party was over after such a significant rise, but NDEV had other plans. The stock kicked off the short week yesterday on an impressive note, managing the biggest single-session swing we’ve seen yet, running from its morning low of .731 to a new high of 1.51. That was a super intraday push of 107% and the new high marked an overall jump from our .30 low amounting to 403%


Momentous Entertainment Group, Inc. MMEG

Speaking of continued movers, a week ago today was when we caught on with MMEG, and it has been nothing but bullish activity since then.

We initially observed a low of .0017 before the stock shot to .0055, a move of 224%. But it too kicked off the short week on a high note, with an intraday spike of 55% as dipped-and-ripped from a morning low of .0044 to a new high of .0068. It also extended our total observed gain on the play in less than a week to an even 300%


Ecolocap Solutions, Inc. ECOS

New to our reports yesterday was ECOS, which produced two noteworthy intraday moves during the session. It first ran from .003 to a high of .0048 (+60%) before pulling back to bounce off a low of
.0025 and return to .0037, adding another 48% to its cumulative gain totals on the day.

A stock with this kind of volatility is definitely worthy of continued observation.


Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. PVCT

We also want to provide a quick update on PVCT which we tagged in yesterday’s extended watchlist. The stock made a modest but solid 28% move from .018-.023, and we’ll want to continue to keep an eye peeled for signs of a continued uptrend.


Cannabis Stocks Rocking Again

Last but most certainly not least, we want to share an image of yesterday’s top traded OTC stocks, nearly all of which are in the cannabis space, which we’ve been drawing heavy attention to over the past several months. We released a reminder video to that effect over the weekend and published it in yesterday’s report, and were obviously met by a huge sector-wide surge.

Moving forward here are a few specific cannabis related stocks to continue to keep a close eye on: AGTK, FTPM, MJTK, MYDX, PMCB, GRNH, AMMJ, CNBX


Oceanic Research & Recovery, Inc. ORRV – Chatroom Call

We spotted ORRV in our chatroom yesterday, signaling it to our members at .0002 x .0003, and it went on to close at the high of day of .0008. That was good for a single session gain of 167%, and since ORRV closed at its high on abnormally high volume, we want to place it on momentum watch in the event of a possible continuation today.


Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom-Plays & More

New Options Ideas

After a relatively subdued half-day to close out the short week on Friday, we’re going to wipe the slate and start fresh today with a couple of options ideas. Based off of our initial scans and the premarket activity, we think each of these plays has the potential to help us start the week on a high note.

AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. AU – For this one, we’re attracted to the positioning on the chart, where, as you can see below, the stock has just begun to rebound off of its lowest PPS in roughly 9 months. Add that to some bullish premarket activity, along with a number of ripening indicators, and we’re very interested in the possibilities.

We’re going to be focusing in on the AU 1/20 $11 and $12 Calls, which gives us more than enough time to see the extended recovery we’re looking for.


_____

Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. CTSH – Our interest was roused by CTSH in this morning’s routine scan, and it too is currently in a favorable position on the chart, coupled with an appreciable premarket gap-up which could lead to a strong session performance.

For this one, we’re going to be looking at the CTSH Weekly $57-60 Calls.


Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. LEXG

Here we have another prime bottom-play with LEXG, which has managed to put together a pretty good rebound off of 6-month lows over the past few sessions.

Currently trading at a low multiple around .0025, we’re looking at a stock that ran from similar levels to over .02 back in August. Even a fraction of such a move from current PPS levels would equate to sizable gain opportunities, so we’ll be putting LEXG on watch in the days and weeks ahead.


_____

CollabRx, Inc. RNVA – This one belongs in the bottom-bouncer category as well. RNVA is coming off of its recently established 52-week low, and appears to be geared up for a continued comeback. We’re going to have this one on close watch as well.
