Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Calls, Bottom-Plays & More

Momo, Inc. MOMO

We began tracking MOMO on Friday after noticing the stock coming off of a bottom, and we’ve seen an appreciable move to the upside in the ensuing sessions.

The stock is gapping up this morning on a strong earnings report (>>View Highlights), reaching a high of 12.73 in the premarket. We caught MOMO at a low of 11.52 on Friday and have thus far seen an 11% increase, so we’ll want to leave it on the radar and watch for higher lows and higher highs.

NQ Mobile, Inc. NQ

Speaking of earnings plays, we’re going to be tracking NQ closely over the next couple of sessions. The stock has been trending off of a bottom for the past three sessions and this morning, we’re seeing the stock gap up considerably.

Things are likely to get interesting as the company is slated to release earnings post-market today, and a big PR hit wires just an hour ago.

Hercules Offshore, Inc. HERO

We’re also going to be monitoring HERO, which, like the aforementioned stock, has been establishing a solid move up off of recently-registered two-month lows.

As you can see on the included snapshot of the chart, HERO went on a massive run from the .70-range to more than 4.00 from February to April. Indicators are ripening for what could be the next big leg up after the recent consolidation, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled for the possibility of a continued upsurge.

The Children’s Place, Inc. PLCE

PLCE is yet another bottom-bouncer with earnings that is gapping up in early trading. We’re going to signal a range of options contracts for observation to possibly take advantage of the momentum. Our target range is going to be the PLCE Weekly $70-75 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NUGN on Bottom-Watch & More

NuGene International, Inc. NUGN

We’re mentioning NUGN for the first time this morning on the heels of some interesting events that have recently unfolded. The stock had been on a sustained uptrend for over two months that was apparently the product of a massive promotion (in which we played no role) which resulted in the PPS running from below $2 to more than $4.

On Wednesday, the company issued a public statement to clarify that it was not involved in promotional activities of any sort >>Read PR

What followed yesterday was a massive sell-off to the tune of nearly 40%, and that’s where we enter the picture. Regardless of the catalysts behind NUGN’s gradual rise and rapid fall, we’re only interested in the chart activity that will follow. We’re going to highlight NUGN as a bottom-watch play, because the resultant bounce when the stock finds a solid level of support could make quick-strike gains a snap for those paying close enough attention.

PPHM, PLUG, & Extended Watchlist

Cannabis Sector Update
After an influx of new subscribers joined us over the weekend, we’d like to take this time to welcome our new friends, and try to get you up to speed as soon as possible. In a time that now spans three calendar years, we have been vigorously tracking numerous marijuana-related stocks with some very profitable results.

Last week (possibly aided by the first stores opening for sales of recreational marijuana in Colorado), the sector as a whole began to heat up once again, necessitating heavy discussion in our daily reports.  As can be expected when several sessions of frenzied uptrending carries stocks as high as we saw many of our cannabis plays, several of those stocks began to consolidate on Friday.

The exceptions were GreenGrow Technologies, Inc. GRNH, and Hemp, Inc. HEMP; High volume spread over multi-day runs often leads to high volatility as well, as in the case with HEMP, which did consolidate to a low of .021, but followed that up with a rebound back to .032, a 52% intraday swing.

GRNH continued its run from the previous session where we had witnessed a low of .045, and barreled its way to a high of .124. We’ll take overnight gains in excess of 176% any day!

As for the rest of the pot stocks we’ve been tracking that have relaxed a bit, we are still eager to see how they respond this week, and will be on the lookout for any chances we might have at bounce plays. Additionally, news of how the first week of sales went in Colorado will be sure to get even more eyes turned toward this burgeoning market sector. Check back for future updates, as we stay tuned in every step of the way.

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. PPHM 

Speaking of stocks that we’ve been tracking since 2012, PPHM has proven itself a winner for us on multiple occasions over the years, and our most recent alert is turning out to be no different. Following that last mention, we observed a low 1.35, which at this morning’s pre-market high at 1.99 represents a 37% increase.

FDA-related news out this morning could fuel a serious push in a Northerly direction, so we won’t want to take our eyes off of PPHM for one moment as trading commences this morning.

TUSTIN, CA, Jan 06, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPHM), today announced that the company has received Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its lead investigational immunotherapy bavituximab for the potential treatment of second-line non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

“The fast track designation is a milestone for the SUNRISE trial program and represents a step closer to bringing bavituximab to the market,” said Robert Garnick, Ph.D., head of regulatory affairs at Peregrine. “We are very pleased that the FDA has recognized the potential of this novel therapy as a treatment for this serious and devastating type of cancer and look forward to working closely with them to ensure the most efficient review process.”

Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

Like the rest of the mentions in today’s newsletter, our history with PLUG goes back a long time. It has brought us percentage gains which cumulatively number in the thousands, and the New Year has brought new life for this one as well. This past Thursday, we caught PLUG at a low of 1.89, and were pleased at the solid 23% move it provided to 2.33. That figure is increasing this morning, as the stock is trading as high as 2.77 in pre-market action, a gain of 47% over Thursday’s low.
