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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Yesterday’s Movers & More

Yesterday’s Movers

Among the stocks we were mentioning in yesterday morning’s premarket report, there were quite a few that ended up turning in positive performances on the day.

Terra Tech Corp. TRTC – TRTC stood out among cannabis stocks with a healthy intraday increase of 21% as it ran from .108-.131. The stock closed with strength, just a tick below the HOD at .13.

We will continue to monitor, not only TRTC, but the marijuana space as a whole, like we were saying yesterday. There is a resurgence of activity in the sector that we feel will only increase as voting season is upon us. The legalization of industrial hemp in North Carolina this week is also a factor in re-generating a ‘buzz’ around cannabis in all its forms.

Global Digital Solutions, Inc. GDSI – GDSI is a stock we’ve continuously tracked for months now, as a quick tag search of our archives reveals. Yesterday, after including it in our extended watchlist, the stock made a healthy 51% intraday pop from a low of .0045 on up to .0068.

As measured from our recent observed low of .0012 (09/24), yesterday’s high registered as an incredible 466% swing in just a little over a month’s time.

__

Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. LBSR - Another inclusion from yesterday’s extended watchlist, LBSR put up a respectable intraday performance as well. The stock traded in a range from .0034-.0049, giving traders the chance at up to 44% profits.


Continued Recovery Watch

Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. APDN & MFC Industrial, Ltd. MIL

We wanted to take a minute to update folks on this pair of stocks that we’ve been tracking as recovery plays since Friday. While they didnt break out by any means yesterday, both managed to log higher highs and higher lows on the day, qualifying them for continued observation.

In fact, both APDN and MIL have managed to record three consecutive sessions of higher highs and higher lows since we entered them into the conversation. We’ll be interested in each case to see how far the trend will carry.

Added Note:
Speaking of bottom-bouncers, another stock with which we have been familiar in the past, is Liquid Holdings Group, Inc. LIQD. It has brought us some solid chances for gains previously, and we’ll want to closely observe as it appears to be quite oversold at the moment, and coming off of a bottom. Conditions appear to be ripening for a possible protracted rebound.
