Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMLH Update, Options Idea

American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH

After watching it run more than 2000% several weeks ago, we began tracking AMLH’s subsequent consolidation and rebound, and the results have been quite pleasing to this point. On Thursday morning, we recapped the stock’s progress to that point as it bounced and ran from .0029-.007 (141%). We also said we’d be on the lookout for the stock to break that resistance at .007, and on Friday, that’s just what it did.

AMLH traded in a daily range from .0058 to .0093, which goes down as an intraday jump of 60%, and a big-time increase of 220% over the previous week’s swing low.

Our regular readers will recall that AMLH started out as a call from our daily live trader’s chatroom on March 27th*, and from the low we witnessed at that time (.0003) this stock has posted an astonishing 3000% upswing!

DISH Network Corp. DISH – Options Idea

We noticed that not only is DISH looking relatively toppy on the chart at the moment, as you can see on the snapshot below, but this morning the company also had a rather ugly earnings release. It included declines in revenue and profits,not to mention more subscriber loss.

We don’t often jump to the bearish side of the fence with our ideas, but in this case it seems appropriate. We’re going to have the DISH 05/12 $62-60 Puts on our radar to take advantage of what could be a significant backslide over the next several sessions.

Ocwen Financial Corp. OCN
& First NBC Bank Holding Co. FNBC

We want to put this pair of finance plays on watch after noticing that both stocks have been beaten back quite a bit over a relatively short period of time.

In the case of OCN, the stock is massively oversold after falling off a cliff a couple of weeks ago, but began to bounce last week, and is gapping up significantly in the premarket.

FNBC is actually gapping down heavily (roughly 90%) in the premarket, so we’ll have to monitor this one for its bottom, but after it’s reached we could in in for a heck of a bounce here as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Continued Options Success

Twitter, Inc. TWTR – Options Recap

Our first order of business in today’s options-heavy report is to go over the second straight session of excellent intraday runs TWTR Weekly $15-16 Calls which we designated as targets in Wednesday morning’s premarket report.

This midweek, Twitter had posted losses that were less than expected in conjunction with rising user numbers. It has provided us with some really good opportunities, which were as follows:

$15 Calls – Range: .84-1.61 – Max Gain: 92%
$15.50 Calls – Range: .39-1.10 – Max Gain: 151%
$16 Calls – Range: .13-.63 – Max Gain: 384%

At this point these contracts owe us nothing. Granted that these are weeklies and it’s Friday, coupled with the fact that the stock has rushed into heavily overbought territory in just a short time, we’re fine moving on to the next thing which we’ll get to in a moment.

United Parcel Service, Inc. UPS

First we want to go over our UPS options idea that we formulated fresh for yesterday’s premarket report. This was another earnings-related idea, as a great deal of our options calls tend to be, and it worked like an absolute charm.

We signaled the UPS 05/05 $108-111 Calls and every single contract in that range produced chances for spectacular multi-bag gains on the day, with the $111′s stealing the show on a seven-bagger!

$108 Calls – Range: .48-1.70 – Max Gain: 254%
$109 Calls – Range: .23-.99 – Max Gain: 330%
$110 Calls – Range: .21-.52 – Max Gain: 148%
$111 Calls – Range: .04-.33 – Max Gain: 725%

These plays, we can leave on our radars as they don’t expire until the end of next week. If UPS manages to convincingly crack through the 200DMA at 109.00, things could get very interesting.

Western Digital Corp. WDC – Fresh Idea

As for the play that’s catching our attention on this morning’s scan, we’ve got yet another post-earnings target with WDC. The stock has been trading in an upward channel for the better part of a year now, and the company just put out a solid beat for Q3 while issuing a bolstered Q4 outlook.

We’ll try to take advantage of the commotion it’s causing on the chart with the WDC Weekly $90-92.50 Calls, but please remember the warning we always give in these situations: Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Updates & More

Twitter, Inc. TWTR – Options Recap

Our formulated ideas for the TWTR options chain from yesterday morning’s premarket report turned out to offer up some fantastic chances to profit. We spotted just the right conditions before market hours and pounced, designating the TWTR Weekly $15-16 Calls to be our targets.

It certainly wasn’t the first time we’ve used Twitter in this manner, and it probably won’t be the last. Regardless of which set of contracts was chosen, multi-bag, single-session gains were there for the taking:

$15 Calls – Range: .30-1.49 – Max Gain: 397%
$15.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.00 – Max Gain: 150%
$16 Calls – Range: .21-.61 – Max Gain: 190%

FRESH Options Idea: UPS 05/05 $108-111 Calls

Akebia Therapeutics, Inc. AKBA

An honorable mention from yesterday’s report was AKBA, which we tagged for observation after noticing some abnormal premarket activity on our routine morning scan.

The stock traded in a respectable range from a low of 11.08 to as high as 13.94. That works out to an intraday move of 26% which came on massive volume of an astonishing 110X the 30-day average! It also managed to close holding roughly half of its daily increase at 12.50, so we’re definitely going to be on the lookout for continued activity in AKBA, which could include a dip-and-rip pattern at some point.

American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH

We tracked AMLH over some monstrous gains from the end of March, to earlier this month. The move took it from super-subpenny lows of .0003 to a high of .007 (+2233%), so we weren’t at all surprised to see a consolidation period follow over the next several sessions.

The stock did however find support and make a reversal off of the .0029 level beginning last week, and heading back up to its previous high of .007 yesterday, marking a 141% swing. We’ll look for the stock to break through that resistance at .007, which would effectively put AMLH into Blue Sky Breakout mode, and trading at its highest prices since the Fall of 2015.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NADL Update, Options & More

North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. NADL

NADL topped our list of potential bottom-plays in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and it ended up being the primary runner of the day.

We picked up on the stock on a routine scan, after noticing a sizable gap-up in the morning, coupled with the fact that the stock had been repeatedly beaten down over an extended period. All the signs seemed to be pointing toward a significant day for NADL, and that’s exactly what transpired.

The stock traded in a daily range from 1.73 on up to 2.87, for a highly respectable single-session swing of 66% that came in on mind-bending volume, on the order of 150X the 30-day average. That type of momentum always has a shot at carrying over, and sure enough, NADL is gapping in the premarket once again today.

The early high is in the 3.50′s, extending to total rise we’ve witnessed in less than 24 hours to roughly 100% and it puts us on alert once again today. We’ll be looking for higher highs and higher lows as usual as we watch this one play out.

Excellent Chatroom Calls

Every once in awhile we like to remind our readers on our website as well as our daily newsletter recipients that we conduct live trader’s chats via Skype on a daily basis, and any of our readers is more than welcome to participate. All you need to do to get in on the action is send a Skype contact request to username ‘stocksumo’. You can sit in and get ideas or offer up some of your own!

Yesterday, one of our chatters gave the room a heads up on Bravatek Solutions, Inc. BVTK shortly before 11AM, and the stock ultimately ran from .0002 to .0011, for an intraday pop of 540% on nearly two billion shares traded.

That brings us to another fantastic call, this time by our very own Stock Sumo, who brought American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH to the attention of the room on March 27th, after which time there was plenty of opportunity to get in at .0003. The stock subsequently ran to a high of .007 two weeks (11 trading days) later, marking an enormous 2233% increase!

If these aren’t reasons to get involved with our daily trader’s chats, then we don’t know what is! There have been a multitude of super-subpenny runners over recent weeks, and these two are prime examples of why we continue to press the issue.

New Options Ideas

We don’t want to spend all of our focus on the stock side of things though, especially with our continued success with options trading, so we want to formulate a few ideas based on some things we’re seeing in the premarket.

Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU – We want to signal both some weekly and extended-range calls this morning on LULU, which has been making attempts at coming off of recent relative lows, with a massive gap on the chart to the upside. We could see this returning to fill at least a portion of that gap. We’ll have our eyes on the LULU Weekly $52-53.50 Calls as well as the 05/06 $55-57 Calls.

Delta Air Lines, Inc.DAL – We’re looking at DAL for a possible short-term play after its earnings beat this morning. Profits fell by a less-than-expected margin, while positive Q2 guidance was issued. Coupled with a major PR disaster for one of its main competitors this week, and we’re definitely interested in seeing if DAL can make an appreciable move. If it does, we’ll be looking at the DAL Weekly $45.50-47.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Bouncers & More

North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. NADL

We’ve got an array of potential bottom-bounce plays to go over this morning, the first of which is NADL. This stock has been getting beaten down incrementally since reaching a high of 4.80 in December. It’s been one selloff after another since then, culminating in a low of .65 during yesterday’s session.

We’re seeing a moderate gap-up this morning, and want to put NADL on our watchlist moving forward on the chance that a multi-day rebound is on the way.


Catalyst BioSciences, Inc. CBIO

Next up on our bottom-bounce watchlist is CBIO, which is also gapping up off of a bottom in the premarket this morning with the help of a key press release, of which we’ll include a snippet below.

The stock recently made a massive run to the $18, so the potential for another major move is certainly present.

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Catalyst Biosciences, Inc., (Nasdaq:CBIO) a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel medicines to address hematology indications, today announced that it has achieved a key milestone under its collaboration with ISU Abxis to advance the Factor IX program towards its first human clinical trial. Completion of the CB 2679d/ISU304 toxicology studies supported the recent Investigational New Drug (IND) approval by the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) and triggered a milestone payment to Catalyst.

Sunshine Heart, Inc. SSH

We tagged SSH as a bottom play a week ago today on the 4th, and subsequently tracked it over a pretty nice run last week as it traded up from 1.67 and hit 2.25 (+35%). It pulled back to the low 1.70′s yesterday and appears to be gearing up for another possible move.

Just two months ago the stock was trading at more than $5/share, so we wanted to add a little reminder this morning that SSH could be line for an extended recovery that we’ll want to look out for in the day and weeks ahead.

Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We were just mentioning yesterday morning the excellent move from GALT we had witnessed between first bringing it up in January and the present. The run, originating at a low of .935 had already reached just beyond the 200% level, and after a very nice intraday performance, our observed range was extended even further.

Trading up from a morning low to 2.75, the stock traded up 34% to reach 3.68. That pushed the overall percentage gain we’ve witnessed in GALT for 2017 to a highly respectable 294%
