SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

Yesterday morning in our premarket report, we formulated a fresh options idea with the SPY 05/15 $281-282.50 Calls after seeing that market conditions appeared to be gearing up for another session-over-session reversal after Monday’s selloff.

Our hunch proved accurate, with a bullish session similar to Friday’s going on the books yesterday, and it provided for some nice chances in our highlighted contracts.

$281 Calls – Range: 2.13-4.35 – Max Gain: 104%
$281.50 Calls – Range: 1.87-3.85  – Max Gain: 106%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AYTU Review & More

Aytu Bioscience Inc. AYTU

Our attention is being drawn back to AYTU this morning, a stock that we placed on watch at the end of March. From the low of 1.55 we observed on the morning of our initial report on the 27th, AYTU had been gradually stair-stepping its way up the chart, reaching a high of 2.47 just last week (+59%).

This morning in the premarket, AYTU reached a brand new high of 2.90, marking an increase of 87% over our initially observed low, and leaving us anxious to see how the activity unfolds from here.


Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Update

We also want to provide another quick update on AMPG, which printed new highs yet again yesterday for the second consecutive session. The stock hit .065, which marks a 51% rise over the .043 low we witnessed at the beginning of last month, when we released our first Special Report on AMPG.

A lot has happened in that span, which you can learn more about by exploring the links in the update we provided on AMPG in yesterday’s premarket report. We would not be at all surprised to see AMPG continue to add to the gains we’ve seen thus far.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEA:

Friday was a fantastic day for the markets, and yesterday was quite poor by comparison. Today it appears as if the see-saw may continue with another bullish session, so we’re going to place the SPY 05/15 $281-282.50 Calls on watch to coincide with our current market sentiments.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge SPY Gains, AMPG New Highs

Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Update

We were all over AMPG once again last week, as we have been since the beginning of April when we initiated coverage on the stock. The move on Friday followed the news that the company virtually doubled their yearly expected sales via acquisition of a long-established, privately-held company.

AMPG made a 15% intraday push to a new high of .063 which works out to an overall increase of 47% over the .043 low we observed on the day of our initial report on the company (04/01/19). It also came with the biggest single-session volume recorded over these past six weeks.

Friday’s gains pushed AMPG‘s market cap above the $3M mark, although we would argue that even at that price, the stock is still grossly undervalued at present. Especially when one considers that it’s notably less than the combined expected annual sales of AMPG and the pending acquisition target, which you can read about in the link to the news above, or in the 8-K filed this morning.

We remain excited for the future potential of this company, and its stock. Stay tuned for future updates and be sure to commence your own due diligence, starting at AmpliTechInc.com.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh AMPG News

Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Big News Alert

First thing’s first- Amplitech has just dropped a fresh PR this morning in the premarket that we wanted to pass along to our readers. As we were just mentioning yesterday, this stock has made a solid 28% increase since we first began tracking it on April 1st (.043-.055), so we’re very interested to take a look at the key news update that has just been provided.

For a sum of just over $2M, AMPG has executed an acquisition of the business assets of privately-held, NY-based, microwave tech firm, Specialty Microwave Corp. (SMW), which boasts an average annual rate of $1.75M in sales over the past three years. A continuation of that trend following the final completion of the acquisition would nearly double AMPG’s 2018 sales! (>>View PR)

What this means for AMPG stock, which was already plenty attractive to us prior to learning of this development, is massive potential for more gains in the immediate future. Remember, we’re dealing with an incredibly tight share structure in AMPG, with just 22M shares in the float, so news of such an acquisition has the potential to be a springboard to a significantly higher PPS!

The deal is for all of SMW’s assets, customers, team members, and upon final completion in the next quarter, AMPG will move its own operations to SMW’s headquarters, just a few miles down the road from Bohemia in nearby Ronkonkoma, NY, and is expected to be wrapped up by July.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMPG Update

Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Updates

We first began covering AMPG at the beginning of April. In the five weeks since then, the stock has made some solid progress on the chart, trading up from a low of .043, to its new high, just reached this week at .055. That’s a solid 28% increase, with no significant pullbacks along the way.

Our interest in the potential of AMPG was obviously justified, but we’re just getting started and we’re as excited as ever. As we’ve mentioned before, Amplitech is in the business of high-end signal amplification technologies with a veritable myriad of applications in a world which is becoming increasingly reliant upon wireless technology.

The transition has already begun- 5G is soon to be the gold standard in wireless communications, and AMPG is among the best OTC stocks we’ve run across to invest in the domestic 5G phenomenon. All of AMPG’s technology is Made in the USA.

With no toxic or long-term debt, and a float of just over 22M shares, AMPG is attractive to traders and longer-term investors alike. With a market cap of just $2.65M along with a pipeline of military-grade RF products and more in development, it’s also safe to say that AMPG is grossly undervalued. The company isn’t just resting on its laurels, either. AMPG recently added a highly experienced investment professional to act as an independent member of the board, chairing several special committees, and free up the CEO to more closely manage the company’s extreme growth potential and execution of strategy.

CEO Fawad Maqbool stated: “I am thrilled to have a seasoned investment banker, entrepreneur and investor such as Wayne committing his time and energy to our emerging company.  He should be invaluable to me in this next phase of our growth as it will allow me to better focus on our products, our customers and the opportunities that are emerging in the industries that we currently serve (custom and standard amplifiers for radar, missile systems, drones and many microwave communications systems), and will seek to serve in the future (innovative power and cryogenic amplifiers for 4G/5G wireless base stations, Wi-Fi for airlines, military jamming, quantum computing, internet of things, cyber security, life sciences and others).”  (>>View Full PR)
