Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Stock and Options Ideas

Yesterday’s Runners:

BioNovelus, Inc. ONOV -In April ONOV, back when the stock was trading in the subpenny range. (.006) We’ve been hot on its trail since then, and the PPS rise has been absolutely exponential. We included it in yesterday morning’s watchlist, and it responded with yet another solid intraday performance ( .51-.715, +40%), while setting an eye-popping new high that extended our observed range to ridiculous proportions. From the low we witnessed subsequent to our first mention of ONOV this spring, the stock has exploded to a dizzying 11,817%

A paltry $100 flyer taken on the company at its low, would have been worth upwards of $11,916 at yesterday’s peak pricing!

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU –  SPU has been on its eye opening run almost the entire time we’ve been tracking it since the Friday before last. We witnessed shares changing hands at 4.00 that day, and yesterday marked the sixth consecutive session that the stock achieved a new high.

This time the intraday run carried it 30% from 16.16, all the way up to 20.95. It represented a total increase of 424% that we’ve observed in just over a week, during which time we’ve tried to make certain all of our readers were aware of the situation. We’ve now mentioned the stock five times in that span.

Sophiris Bio, Inc. SPHS – The daily run we saw here was modest, but still notable. SPHS traded up from 4.92 to 5.98; an intraday upswing of 22%

Tianyin Pharmaceutical, Inc. TPIY

We took notice of TPIY yesterday when the stock broke through a key prior resistance point at .0295, along with a breach of the 50DMA (.02). We want to see those both hold as support on any pullbacks, with .04 being the next key resistance we would like to see broken.

Texas Instruments, Inc. TXN – Options Idea

In the wake of an untraded-upon post-market earnings beat for Texas Instruments yesterday, we’re going to be focusing in on a range of call contracts to potentially take advantage of any upward momentum the stock should encounter this week as a result. Our target range is going to include the TXN Weekly $70-72 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OPTT, MSFT Recaps & More

Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. OPTT

It was June 16th when OPTT started appearing on our scans, and subsequent to that, we’ve witnessed the stock trading as low as 2.33.

The stock has really been ramping up the intensity in recent sessions, causing us to tag it on Monday (low of 5.72), and then again in yesterday’s report. OPTT had a really nice intraday performance in yesterday’s session, wherein traders could have banked up to 97% in gains as it ran from 7.94 to a new high of 15.65.

From our alert on Monday, that high represents an upswing of 174%, and from our overall observed low from last month, a PPS increase of 572%  For us to stay keen on OPTT moving forward, we’ll want to see it hold at Tuesday’s swing high of 9.87 on any forthcoming pullbacks.

Microsoft Corp. MSFT – Options Update

With MSFT’s recent aquisition of LNKD and an exciting earnings beat yesterday, MSFT was causing a buzz on the Street. We honed in on some corresponding options ideas for a potential daytrading opportunity, and it unsurprisingly turned out quite well in our favor.

The specific range we highlighted was the MSFT Weekly $54.50-56.50 Calls and the total possible gains on each were as follows:

$54.50 Calls – Range: 1.16-2.31 – Max Gain: 99%
$55 Calls – Range: .76-1.86 – Max Gain: 148%
$55.50 Calls – Range: .46-1.36 – Max Gain: 196%
$56 Calls – Range:  .24-.95 – Max Gain: 296%
$56.50 Calls – Range: .10-57 – Max Gain: 470%

We’ll continue to trail these contracts for the remainder of the week, as further opportunities may be present.

Fresh Options Idea:

QUALCOMM, Inc. QCOM – We’ve got an earnings beat causing this stock to move in the premarket, so we’re going to be monitoring the QCOM Weekly $58-61 Calls.

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

We placed SPU on watch on Friday, and the stock has been gaining some excellent ground this week over our observed low of 4.00 from that morning. Yesterday it hit a high of 10.13, marking a move of 153%
