Blue Horseshoe Stocks: UURAF Update & More

Ucore Rare Metals, Inc. UURAF – Update

We wanted to return to UURAF today, a company we covered last month, which is in the process of designing and building a rare earth material extraction facility near Ketchikan, Alaska which it believes could help the US end its dependency on China for rare earths.

UURAF’s Bokan – Dotson Ridge rare earth property is considered as having some of the richest deposits of rare earth materials in North America, and is so promising that the Alaskan government pledged a $145M funding package to assist in development of the property, including $30M for the new processing facility.

A few weeks ago, the company announced it would be executing a private placement to help cover general expenses as it continues to develop the Bokan property, and just yesterday, we saw that the company has completed the first portion of that deal, quickly making good on its earlier statement:

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, June 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSXV:UCU) (OTCQX:UURAF) is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated May 23, 2018, the Company has successfully closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement by issuing 6,344,074 units at a subscription price of $0.18 per Unit for gross proceeds of approximately $1,142,000.

Tesla, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

TSLA stock is getting a jolt after KeyBanc analysts predicted as much as a 50% rise in Tesla Model 3 deliveries, and as is the case whenever something causes a stir on the chart, we are going to be looking to take advantage of the situation using some weekly options ideas.

For TSLA, which just recently cracked through its 200DMA, we are going to be looking to the TSLA Weekly 337.50-347.50 Calls for potential quick-strike trades.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More Options Ideas

BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Inc. BMRN

BioMarin had a really solid performance yesterday after we signaled some contracts in our premarket report, the BMRN 03/16 $80 & 85 Calls. The stock ran from 81.01 to 84.19 facilitating some modest but solid intraday moves in our contracts.

The $80 Calls ran from 4.40-6.00 for a 32% rise, and the $85′s traded from 2.70-3.50, a gain of 26%

With a strong close at 83.28, and a lot of ground to cover to recoup the losses the stock has seen in the month of February, we’ll look for BMRN to establish a more sustained recovery pattern, and we may see some further increases in these contracts, which still have over a month until expiration.


Under Armour, Inc. UAA

We want to formulate an idea for Under Armour on the heels of the company’s earnings report this morning. The stock had already begun to trend off of its bottom a few sessions ago, and despite posting a Q4 loss, sales were better than expected and the stock is gapping up pretty significantly here in the premarket.

We’re going to want to keep tabs on the UAA Weekly $15.50-16.50 Calls, which could bring us sizable gain opportunities in the day or days to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMZN Review & More

LiNiu Technology Group, Inc. LINU

Among yesterday’s tracked stocks was LINU, which we signaled after noticing some abnormal volume and price action in the previous session.

While the stock didn’t necessarily break out in a big way, the intraday move it did make was reasonably solid. From a low of  1.79, it ran as high as 2.36 on the day, marking a 32% pop. The move came on 39X the monthly average volume, and the stock did hold more than half of its daily advance into a strong close.

With that kind of momentum built up, we’ll certainly want to let LINU remain on our radar in upcoming sessions and look for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.


General Electric Corp. GE

We like the setup on the current GE chart, which as you can see from the included snapshot below, has been pounded down to new lows this week.

We’re always looking to track the potential recoveries of heavily oversold stocks, and GE is certainly in that category. There’s also a sizable gap from July which needs to be filled, as well as some insider buying being logged near these lows last week.

We’ll put this one on watch for what seems like an inevitable rebound, while signaling a pair of options contracts to add to our radars, the GE 11/17 $26 & $27 Calls.


Amazon.com Inc. AMZN

We also have to swing back around to pat ourselves on the back for our options ideas on AMZN, which we submitted on Monday morning.

We noted that the AMZN 10/06 $965-980 Calls should have some nice moves once the stock saw a reversal, and it turned out to be a good hunch. The $965′s traded from 19.25-27.00 (+40%), the $980′s went from 11.39-20.20 (+77%) and the five contracts in the range in between those two all made similar gains.

AMZN is gapping up in the premarket this morning, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see our overall observed gains increase further.


Dextera Surgical, Inc. DXTR

Starting a couple of weeks ago on the 16th, and then again midway through last week, we’ve been signaling DXTR, which was coming up off of recent relative lows just a few sessions earlier.

We wanted to quickly point out its performance over that span, which started from a low of .26 and has run up to new highs in premarket trading today. It’s thus far hit a high of .43, which works out to a respectable two-week swing of 65%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom-Plays & More

Twitter, Inc. TWTR – Options Idea

We have yet to talk about TWTR in 2017, namely because the stock has been in an overall downtrend over nearly that whole span. However, in recent weeks, it found a bottom and slowly has begun stair-stepping its way to a recovery. That process is getting a kick in the pants this morning with a significant morning gap up on the heels of Twitter’s earnings. The company posted losses, though not as big as expected, while also reporting an increase in users.

We’re going to see about possibly using the commotion to our advantage with a range of options ideas. Provided TWTR can maintain support at or above its 50DMA (15.19) on any pullbacks, we’re going to be interested in tracking the activity in the TWTR Weekly $15-16 Calls, on which we’ll be looking for a classic dip-and-rip pattern. If properly timed, it could spell some big gains in those contracts.


Apricus Biosciences, Inc. APRI

We want to put APRI on our radars today as a potential bottom-bouncer. At the beginning of the year, from a level comparable to current prices, the stock ran into the mid-$3 range. Now, after a long period of getting beat back nearly to its annual low, it is showing signs of a rebound that we’d like to monitor on the chance that it turns into a full-scale reversal.

You can see just what we mean on the snapshot below. The RSI is indicating that APRI is about to enter extreme oversold territory, while the MACD is just beginning to curl upward and show some convergence. We wouldn’t be surprised to a see cross in the days ahead.

Even just a run back to the 200DMA from here would be a move of almost 100% so we’ll definitely want to keep an eye peeled.

NoHo, Inc. DRNK

We’ve been saying how hot the super-subpenny market has been recently, and the trend has been persisting now for quite some time.  We initially slated DRNK for observation in Monday’s premarket report, after which we saw a soild 70% pop from a low of .0003. We stated as much in yesterday’s report, mentioning that we’d certainly want to continue to pay attention, based on a number of factors.

The stock did manage to record a new high for us for the second straight day, making an intraday move of 50% from .0004-.0006, and extending our two-session observed range to a nice, round 100%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OCRX Recap, Options & More

Ocera Therapeutics, Inc. OCRX

We noticed OCRX gapping up off of its bottom yesterday in the premarket, relaying that fact along to our readers in our morning report. The stock had a major gap to fill to the upside leading into yesterday’s session which we pointed out with a chart snapshot, and the excellent intraday run that ensued made some good headway in terms of filling a portion of that gap.

The stock traded in a range from .77 to 1.15 yesterday, for an intraday rise amounting to 49% and did so on immense volume to the tune of roughly 15X the 30-day average.

This morning in premarket trading we’re seeing another gap-up, trading as high as 1.37 so far. We’ll need to keep our eyes peeled right from the starting gun this morning as another bullish session could be forthcoming. We’re going to want to see yesterday’s closing value of 1.10 hold as support on any pullbacks in order to sustain our immediate interest.


e.l.f Beauty, Inc. ELF – Options Idea

We caught ELF on the heels of a strong earnings report wherein healthy beats on both earnings and revenues were announced. The stock is gapping up in premarket trading today, having breached the $30-mark with an early high of 30.99.

We always like a good post-earnings options idea so we’re going to formulate one that we can follow for the remainder of this week and into the next. We will be tracking the three sets of contracts in the range of ELF 03/17 $25-35 Calls over the next few sessions for potential quick strike trades.



Northern Dynasty Minerals. Ltd. NAK

We highlighted NAK in yesterday’s watchlist after noticing the stock had been trending steadily downward toward its 200DMA. We banked on the hunch that it would find support around that area, and were essentially spot-on in assuming a reversal was in the cards.

The stock underwent a classic dip-and-rip pattern, trading in a range from 1.08-1.34 for a modest intraday upswing of 24% While it didn’t blow our socks off on the first day, we still believe that serious upside potential exists for NAK from its current standing. All indicators are pointing to the strong possibility of this stock returning to the 2.00-level or better in the near future.

Additionally, a hike in the federal interest rates, which many expect as soon as this month, could have a positive impact on precious metal plays like this one, so it will be interesting to see what lays in store for NAK.
