Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PNTV, XBIT Recaps & More

The Players Network, Inc. PNTV

PNTV is a stock that we were talking about quite a bit late last year and in the beginning of 2017, and since then, the stock has made some really impressive moves.

In the span of one quarter, from March until June, the stock has risen from lows at .0232 to trade as high as .1315. That’s an incredible upswing of 466%

While many plays in the cannabis space have seen some unexpected difficulty this year, PNTV is not one of them. They recently announced progression on the joint venture they have going with MCIG on the construction of a Vegas-based grow facility.


Xbiotech, Inc. XBIT

We tagged XBIT in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and subsequently bore witness to a solid early-morning pop. The stock ran from 3.75 to 5.61 right from the starting the gate, banging out a solid 51% pop inside of the first hour of trading.

We also have to remember that in XBIT, we have a stock that was trading just a hair shy of $20 as recently as March. We’ll have to be on the lookout in the event that the recent rebound mounted by the stock is just a foreshadowing of an even larger recovery.



Ability, Inc. ABIL

We’ve been mentioning ABIL each day since last Wednesday, and it turned out to be a really nice bottom-bouncer.

We’ve thus far witnessed two definitive swings from ABIL; initially from.6298-1.69 for a 168% run, and then a dip to .90 followed by a run back to 1.60 in premarket trading today. That added another 78% swing to what we’ve observed in ABIL.

We’d like to see it set a higher low, holding the 1.15-1.25 range on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.

FRESH IDEAS:

Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – With Q4 earnings season in full swing, we will include another options idea based on the early activity in AMZN, which posted disappointing figures in its post-market release yesterday.

Here we’re going to be highlighting a range of puts that we feel stand to make decent gains, should AMZN’s fortunes play out as we suspect they might today. The targets we want to place on watch are going to be the AMZN Weekly $810-800 Puts.

______

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – On the bullish side of things, solid jobs numbers could very well lead to an overall uptrend for the markets as a whole, so we’re going to want to designate an a corresponding idea for that.

Generally, we like to use the SPY as a market analog, so we’re going to signal a range of SPY calls to try to take advantage of the current conditions. Our target range here will be the SPY Weekly $227.50-229 Calls.


Cerulean Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CERU

We want to keep our eyes on CERU as we close out the week, and into next week, as the stock is currently boasting a chart that looks as if it could break out at any moment.

As you can see, the stock has been gradually building a higher base of support off of annual lows recorded in the fall, and yesterday, really started to make a bullish move. We’re seeing a slight gap-up this morning to just below the resistance channel between 1.20 and 1.30. As we’ve pointed out below, there is a huge gap on the chart to the upside, and a breach of that channel would begin to fill it in.

This is a stock that we feel could easily make a 100% move inside of the next few sessions, so we will want to watch carefully.

DryShips, Inc. DRYS – Update

We wanted to start things off this morning by providing an update and some reactive commentary on DRYS, whose massive surge from early this week was stopped in its tracks yesterday.

After the mammoth run we tracked it over from 13.60 on Monday to Tuesday’s high of 102.00 (+650%), the stock was halted, and only resumed trading yesterday. What followed was a massive selloff that we did caution would be forthcoming in Wednesday’s report, stating that we’d want to be ready to take advantage of a potential dip-and-rip when that occurred.

That’s why we wanted to remind our readers of the situation today, and put the stock on bottom-watch. Rebounds are often proportional to the surges that preceded them, and if that holds true here, the bounce on DRYS when it reverses could be significant.


Solaris Power Cells, Inc. SPCL

Next up is SPCL, which we began watching for a bottom on Tuesday, and after realizing that bottom the following session, the stock has made quite a respectable move. It traded in a range from it’s low of .0041 on Wednesday, to a new high of .0098 yesterday.

That worked out to a two-day swing of 139% We’ll continue to monitor this play, and will look for the registering of higher lows and a breach from subpenny into penny territory.


Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – Options Idea

We’re taking a look at Amazon this morning for a possible options play. The stock has been building a nice head of steam over the past few sessions, and appears to want to continue that trend today. To take advantage in the event of a continued uptrend, we’ll signal a range of options contracts, the AMZN Weekly $757.50-762.50 Calls.

*Please remember that highly-experienced options traders are the only people who should ever attempt to trade weekly expiring options on a Friday.

Options Roundup

We had put a couple of options ideas in place as we closed out the trading week on Friday, and found success across the board.

Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – It took the better part of the entire morning on Friday for things to heat up for our AMZN puts, but once they did, it sent our highlighted options contracts on one heck of a ride. Those were the AMZN Weekly $780-772.50 Puts and they allowed for profits both approaching and exceeding ten-bagger territory!

Between roughly noon and 3PM, we saw an significant move to the downside which facilitated the following enormous gains:

$780 Puts – Range: .46-4.80 – Max Gain: 943%
$777.50 Puts – Range: .28-3.32 – Max Gain: 1085%
$775 Puts – Range: .14-1.80 – Max Gain: 1185%
$772.50 Calls – Range: .08-1.03 – Max Gain: 1187%

_____

Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd RCL – The contracts we chose for the RCL chain were the RCL 11/18 $67.50-72.50 Calls. These are extended term contracts with plenty of time left until expiration, which explains why the premiums were so high, and the moves were of a lesser magnitude than AMZN. Still, for a first day, we did see some notable gain opportunities, including a double-bagger:

$67.50 Calls – Range: 5.30-7.80 – Max Gain: 47%
$70 Calls – Range: 3.30-5.80 – Max Gain: 76%
$72.50 Calls – Range: 1.70-3.85 – Max Gain: 126%


Axion Power International, Inc. AXPW

We want to circle back to this old familiar play, which up until the past couple of weeks, had been on a continuous downslide for quite some time. Due to a number of factors, we’ll be interested in tracking the stock’s progress off of its recently registered annual lows.

On Friday, the stock made a nice move and temporarily cracked the 50DMA at .0131, which will be the key area of resistance of which we’ll be watching for a sustained break. As you can see on the chart below, the stock recently woke up off of being heavily oversold for an extended period, and we’re going to want to track every step of its recovery.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Updates, Options & More

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CNBX

We began talking about CNBX earlier this month, mentioning it on the 5th and 6th, as part of our ongoing effort to remind our readers of the myriad opportunities there are, and will continue to be, in the cannabis space. We’re now less than two weeks away from an election that should dramatically alter the landscape of the marijuana business.

CNBX is among a number of pot-related plays that we’ve had on our running tracklist, and with the help of a really strong month overall, it has come all the way from our observed low of .06 on the day of our initial mention (10/05) to a new high yesterday of .377. That works out to an increase of 528% inside of three weeks.

It wasn’t the first time we’ve seen such a huge move out of a cannabis stock, and it certainly won’t be the last.


MyDx, Inc. MYDX

Speaking of the cannabis sector, MYDX is another constituent of that space that we’ve been tracking this month only to witness some excellent moves to the upside.

We entered MYDX into the mix on the 10th, and subsequently observed a low of .0225. Since then it’s been a fairly steady ramp-up and yesterday the stock achieved a new high of .0525. It represents a total PPS rise of 133%, which, like the above-mentioned play, occurred in a span of less than three weeks.


Fresh Options Ideas

We’re going to close things out for the week with the following options ideas.

AMZN Weekly $780-772.50 Puts*

RCL Weekly $67.50-72.50 Calls*

*Don’t forget what we always say regarding the trading of weekly options on a Friday. Advanced traders ONLY!
