Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Closing Out Another Great Week

More Great Options Winners
-
This has been yet another great week for us with regard to the success of our options ideas. We’re very proud of our ability to consistently identify and present some of the best opportunities for quick-strike traders to profit from. We’ll go over the potential gains brought on by yesterday’s session, and then we’ll provide a handful of fresh ideas to official close out the week. 

Overstock.com, Inc. OSTK – New for yesterday’s report was our interest in the OSTK Weekly $18.50-19 Calls. We were encouraged by the premarket volatility caused by comments from the CEO, as well as an analyst upgrade, and the potential single-session returns were rather impressive.

The $18.50 Calls ripped their way from a low of .28 and reached 1.50, for a mega-move of 436% while the $19′s ran from 20-1.20, topping out at an intraday upswing of 500%
____

eBay Inc. EBAY – eBay was another target in yesterday mornings report, with the EBAY Weekly $40-41 Calls being our focal points. Multi-bag gains across the board were to be had here as well, which were as follows:

$40 Calls – Range: .80-2.01 – Max Gain: 151%
$40.50 Calls – Range: .48-1.54 – Max Gain: 221%
$41 Calls – Range: .32-1.11 – Max Gain: 247%

More Fresh Ideas*:

SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY $288-290 Calls
Crowdstrike Holdings, Inc. CRWD $80-85 Calls
Microsoft Corp. MSFT $139-141 Calls
Weight Watchers International, Inc. WW $24-26 Calls

*Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an advanced level trader with access to disposable funds!


Tautachrome, Inc. TTCM

We were just mentioning TTCM last Friday, and once again, we’re closing out the week with a mention of TTCM’s recent success on the chart.  Our initial alert on TTCM was on Monday of last week, subsequent to which point we would observe a low of .0103 in the stock. Yesterday, it shot up to a new high of .022, which marks an upswing of 114% inside of two weeks.

The activity can perhaps be partially explained by the buzz over the company’s upcoming launch of the KlickZie smartphone app for both iPhone and Android devices. We’ll certainly be anxious to continue tracking this volatile, and thus far, high-momentum play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RARX Review & More

Ra Pharmaceuticals. Inc. RARX

It was the morning of December 12th that we most recently highlighted RARX, and it is one stock that has weathered the ups and downs of the past few weeks quite well. In fact, subsequent to that report, we’ve observed a run from a low of 15.23, up as high as 22.15. That amounts to a run of 45% which is highly respectable for a $15+ stock over a short time span.

That high also represented a new 52-week high for the stock, which is especially impressive when you consider that most stocks out there are just now coming off of recently established annual lows. We’ll be highly interested to see if RARX can continue to push its upper limits.

For what it’s worth, our first-ever mention of RARX came last February, when it was trading at less than $6/share.


Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) PBR

We’ve got a long history with PBR options that stretches back years, as you can see in our PBR Archive. Like a lot of other stocks we’re seeing, PBR is coming off of recent relative lows, and has gained a quick boost from the loosening pressure on the markets over the past week.

PBR has breached its 50-day moving average in the premarket, and we want to line up a pair of quick-strike options trading possibilities to correspond with this volatile activity. We’ll be watching the PBR Weekly $14 & 14.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INSY Recap & More

INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we’ve been tracking the INSY 01/19 $8 and $9 Calls since Wednesday morning.

After Friday’s session brought us some solid gains, we mentioned that we could be in line to see an extension to those moves, and that we’d look to roll up our strike price to the $10-level if the stock held above its premarket low of  9.75, which it did with no problem.

We were able to see some nice extensions to the highs we had already observed in the $8 and $9 Calls, and as a nice move on the $10′s as well. We’ve now witnessed the $8 Calls run from .90-3.20, for a gain of 255%, while the $9′s have gone up from .60 to 2.70, which works out to a 350% run. Excellent gains were there for the taking on the $10 Calls as well, as they ran from .70-1.80 on the day, a 157% rip.

A play on the stock alone from the low on Wednesday following our initial alert at  7.64, to yesterday’s high of 11.62, would have been good for gains of up to 52%and the stock has trended even higher in the premarket this morning, so we’ll be on the lookout for this party to possibly keep rolling.



Pot Stock Updates

We’d also like to swing back around to provide updates for a couple of our favorite cannabis plays. Back on November 7th, we reminded our readers of what a big year 2018 was gearing up to be for the marijuana business. We included a list of cannabis plays to watch closely, and among them was ACBFF and TRTC. Two stocks that we’ve been tracking for years.

Neither one has gone any lower since November, and in fact each have gone on to make some fantastic moves in the last 7 weeks. The excellent gains made available by these plays were as follows:

Aurora Cannabis, Inc. ACBFF -  Range: 2.7776-9.50 – Max Gain: 242%

Terra Tech Corp. TRTC – Range: .1885-.578 – Max Gain: 207%

There;s not going to be any slowdown in our tenacity to cover cannabis stocks as we progress into the new year. California kicked off legal recreational sales this week, and Canada will do so in just six short months. 2018 is set to be a very green year!

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: Options Ideas, Fresh Plays & More

Fresh Options Ideas

We had a good run of success with equities early on this week, so we thought it was high time to split our focus and turn our attention back to some options trading ideas. We’ve had monstrous success identifying winning calls in recent weeks, and there’s a couple of events driving the following stocks to gap up this morning. As usual, we’ll be on the lookout for dip-and-rip formations to unfold in these scenarios.

Facebook, Inc. FB – FB is soaring on the heels of a tidy earnings beat yesterday, and as a result, we’ll be scanning the FB Weekly $106-111 Calls for some exciting action today. If the premarket volatility is any indicator, we can expect to see some vigorous intraday swings from those contracts.

Expedia, Inc. EXPE – Following a confirmed buyout of HomeAway, Inc.AWAY, EXPE is popping in early trading as well. For this one, we’ll be tracking the EXPE Weekly $138-142 Calls.


AEterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

We’re going to be turning back to a stock that we’ve talked about in the past in AEZS. The stock registered a brand new 52-low of .04 a week ago today, and has been making solid progress in establishing higher lows off of that bottom since then.

We’re going to begin watching AEZS more closely in the sessions ahead. We’re looking specifically for a break of the current 50DMA at .074, after which there isn’t much in the way of resistance until the .10-area.


General Steel Holdings, Inc. GSI

GSI has been backsliding for quite some time and has breached well into oversold territory. When we come across a chart like this, our natural instinct is to place it on bottom-watch.

We had critical success calling out the bottoms on MIL and APDN toward the end of last week, and GSI is looking like it could be the next bounce-play.
