Blue Horseshoe Wishes You a Happy New Year!

View Systems, Inc. VSYM

We tagged VSYM in yesterday morning’s premarket report and despite an early dip to a low of .0014, the stock made a heck of a bounce in the latter portions of the day.

VSYM ran into the closing bell and ended just a tick below its high-of-day at .0028. It marked an intraday pop of exactly 100% and the move occurred on healthy volume to the tune of just over 2.5X the monthly average.

Chimerix, Inc. CMRX

CMRX grabbed our attention on Monday as we were noticing the massive 75% premarket selloff that was occurring. Failed clinical trials can be damning for a stock, but we felt as if the move was too reactionary and placed it on rebound watch.

Our exact words from Monday’s morning report were: “Knee-jerk selloffs of this magnitude don’t come along every day, but when they have in the past, we’ve almost always seen some measure of a recovery.”

The trading action that has followed certainly validated our assumption about CMRX. The stock has managed to record higher lows every day this week, as it has trended from Monday’s daily low of 6.43 to yesterday’s high of 8.56; a three-day swing amounting to 33%

That figure was extended to 43% as of this morning’s premarket high of 9.19. Based on the activity we’ve tracked to this point, it’s likely that we’ll continue our observation of CMRX into the new year.

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW

We’ve made ourselves familiar with WTW ever since the news of Oprah’s involvement with the company hit the wires this fall. We had tremendous success with WTW options at that time, and the stock itself appeared on our premarket watchlist yesterday.

It was a great time re-enter it into the mix as WTW ran from 20.63 to 24.22, marking a 17% move to the upside. We’d consider that quite an impressive single-session advance for $20+ stock.

We also drew attention to the WTW $22 Calls in our live trader’s chat (which are currently free and open to all of our readers*) and those went on to make a stellar performance, running from .40-2.15 (+437%) subsequent to our signal.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates, Fresh Ideas & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

For the third consecutive session yesterday, we were treated to exceptional intraday performances by the AAPL Weekly $114-116 Calls that we initially signaled on Tuesday.

AAPL continued to bull its way to its highest PPS levels in over two months, and managed to close above $120 on the day. As a result, the contracts we were monitoring provided the following opportunities:

$114 Calls – Daily Range:  4.34-6.70 – Max Gain: 54%
$115 Calls - Daily Range: 3.47-5.70 – Max Gain: 64%
$116 Calls - Daily Range: 2.53-4.70 – Max Gain: 86%

While those gains were respectable, sharp traders will have seen greater opportunities in rolling up their strike prices to stay closer to the money as AAPL continued to run. The stock gapped up to crack the $121-mark in the premarket this morning, and so we’ll definitely be looking for quick-strike chances* in the range of the Weekly $119-121 Calls.

*Just remember, contracts with weekly expiration represent exploding offers. Extreme caution is required for trading these options on Friday!

LinkedIn Corp. LNKD

Speaking of fresh options ideas, LNKD is soaring in the premarket this morning, so we’re going to be tracking a range of contracts in this chain as well. We had tremendous success with LNKD calls this summer, and given the current conditions, we believe history could repeat itself today.

We’ll be prospecting a wide range in the LNKD Weekly $235-245 Calls as the session commences, as it seems that things could get very interesting(…and don’t forget the warning above about trading weeklies on a Friday!).

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MAXD Update, Options Ideas & More

Max Sound Corp. MAXD

The first thing we want to do this morning is update our readers the performance of MAXD this week. Since we tagged MAXD for observation on Tuesday morning, the stock has gone for quite a ride. It has managed to record higher highs and higher lows every single day, and the overall span we’ve witnessed in just three sessions has been notable to say the least.

Yesterday’s high was .0478, which represented a 74% swing over our observed low of .0275 from Tuesday. Volume in that span has been significantly heavier than average, and we’ll want to continue to monitor MAXD for signs of a protracted uptrend. In order to keep our interest, the stock will need to hold support at or above a previous level of significant resistance at .032 on any pullbacks.

Nutrafuels, Inc. NTFU

We want to follow up on yesterday’s NTFU Special Report with a video presentation of the NTFU Chart, in which we’ll highlight some of the key aspects. 

If you didn’t catch yesterday’s report on NTFU, we invite you to check that out now. The company has a full line of products that are currently available, not to mention an impressive game plan for moving its business forward, that we feel warrants special consideration.

Yesterday’s news with Amazon was a big development too, so if you missed that as well, use the following link to get up to speed:

NutraFuels, Inc. (NTFU) Going Live on Amazon With Three Leading Oral-Spray Dietary Supplements; Weight-Loss, Sleep Support and Spa-Hair, Skin & Nails. (Thu, Oct 22)

We’d also suggest taking a look at the detailed investor presentation outlining the NutraSpray brand:

NTFU Investor Presentation

Fresh Options Ideas:

We’re looking for dip-and-rips out of both of the following stocks after a roughly a 10% gap-up on earnings in the premarket today in each case. For today’s quick-strike options trading radar, we’ll be tracking:

Amazon, Inc. AMZN Weekly $610-625 Calls

Microsoft Corp. MSFT Weekly $51-53.50 Calls

*Don’t forget that trading weekly options on a Friday is an inherently risky proposition, as they are on the verge of expiration. It can, however, be a chance for experienced traders to profit greatly as premiums go down and volatility rises.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APPG, RSH & OTIV Updates

Apptigo International, Inc. APPG

Our readers may recall that we tagged APPG as a potential bottom-play in Friday’s premarket report, as the stock was coming off its 52-week lows a couple of sessions prior.

We mentioned that we liked APPG “provided it can hold support above .365 in order to break the pattern of its recent downtrend”, and it did in fact maintain support above that level. We saw a daily range from .37-.43 which is equal to a 16% move, and the stock closed just a penny below its high-of-day.

We’ll be monitoring APPG as we kick off a new trading week, and looking for the stock to register higher lows and higher highs to confirm a sustained uptrend.

RadioShack Corp. RSH

Despite recent uncertainty caused by talk of possible bankruptcy proceedings, RSH did well on Friday. We’ve been tracking the stock heavily since the beginning of August, where we caught it at its 52-week low of .55.

Following a gradual incline to a high of 1.77, the stock has been under recent consolidation, and toward the end of last week we were looking for it to maintain support above its then-50DMA of .83, and it did just that.

On Friday it traded in a daily range from .86-1.00 (+16%), and closed at .91. Like the previously mentioned stock we’ll need to see RSH record higher lows and higher highs, and test its next key areas of resistance at 1.15 and 1.30.

It should go without saying that we’ll also want to keep our ear to the tracks for updates on RSH’s tenuous financial situation.

On Track Innovations Ltd. OTIV

OTIV made an appearance in Thursday’s newsletter on our extended watchlist. We saw the stock touch a low of 3.12 that morning, and then begin a gradual ascent spanning through Friday’s session as it went on to a subsequent high of 3.94 (+26%).

It’s going to remain high on watchlist today, as we’ve already seen trades in the premarket going off as high as 4.39. At that level, our total possible gain on this stock over the course of just a few sessions is expanded to 41%

Extended Watchlist:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APPG, LULU, SCOK Updates & More

Apptigo International, Inc. APPG

We flagged APPG on August 25th after noticing that the stock was being subjected to a rapid sell-off, and was setting new 52-week lows. That period of consolidation continued over the past couple of weeks, as APPG finally found support just above .25 and began to bounce on Wednesday.

Yesterday we saw it recover nicely, briefly breaching the .40-mark before settling in to close at .38. The chart is exhibiting some signs of a premium-potential bottom play, so we’ll remain very interested in APPG provided it can hold support above .365 in order to break the pattern of its recent downtrend.

Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU Calls

Our options trading idea from yesterday’s newsletter was spot-on, with the dip-and-rip scenario we suggested playing itself out within the first twenty minutes of trading action. If you recall, we expected to see opportunities somewhere in the range of the $41-$43 Calls, and we weren’t disappointed.

The $42 Calls traded as low as 1.00 before ripping to a daily high of 3.38 (+238% intraday move), while the $43′s would trade up over an even more impressive span. Those saw a low of .59 and subsequent high of 3.02, making rapid gains of up to 411% a possibility.

Those were some serious opportunities, so a big cheer goes out to anyone who was able to take advantage.

SinoCoking Coal & Coke Chemical Industries, Inc. SCOK

SCOK, which has been a point of focus for us for most of this week, had another respectable day yesterday after we included in our extended watchlist. After a morning low of 5.60, the stock subsequently ran to 7.78, affording traders the chance to bag up to 39% in profits. Congratulations if you were among them!
