Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Celebrating 6 Years!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

First thing’s first- today marks the SIX YEAR anniversary of when we launched BlueHorseshoeStocks.com, our home on the web, and place to store and make available every single newsletter we’ve ever sent out during that time! We’ve unfailingly brought ideas to the table every trading day since then and want to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers who we value so much. From the most loyal who have been with us from the beginning, to every single person we picked up along the way. Cheers to all!


GoPro, Inc. GPRO

We put a set of options on watch for GPRO on Friday morning, and the potential single session gains that were there for the taking ranged from very good to downright fantastic!

Our highlighted range was the GPRO Weekly $9-10 Calls, and the intraday move that the stock itself made from a low of 9.31 up as high as 10.38, facilitated the following gain opportunities:

$9 Calls – Range: .34-1.35 – Max Gain: 297%
$9.50 Calls – Range:.13-.84 – Max Gain: 546%
$10 Calls – Range:.01-.40 – Max Gain: 3900%

As you can see, the chances for profits were exponentially greater, the higher the strike price chosen, but all around the idea turned out to be solid no matter what.


Eros International, plc EROS

We want to place EROS on watch as a possible bottom-bounce play this morning, after noticing a couple of different factors at work. The stock spent the past several sessions getting pummeled down to new 52-week lows, which in itself would be enough to catch our attention.

This morning we’re seeing a notable gap-up in the premarket, on the news that the Indian film company has entered preliminary talks with Apple to sell its entire content library. (>>View PR)

The stock was recently trading in the $14 range, and a return to that level does not seem out of the question, so we want to keep an eye on EROS as we kick off a new trading week.

Blue Horsesehoe Stocks: DLTR, MMEX Recaps & More

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

We’ve got updates on our DLTR options idea for send morning in a row today. Just to recap for those who may have missed it, we formulated an idea for last Wednesday‘s premarket report, the  DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls.

With a very nice multi-day bullish run for DLTR in effect and continuing yesterday brought the stock to new highs once again, which means updates to our observed ranges on these contracts that we began tracking last week.

$78 Calls – Range: .51-2.22 – Max Gain: 335%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .63-2.05 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range:  .48-1.95 – Max Gain: 198%
$79.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.69- Max Gain: 383%
$80 Calls – Range: .30-1.40 – Max Gain: 367%

DLTR has now traded up from the $74 area, to nearly $80 over that spanm and in the event it breaks that $80 barrier, we would have to look at rolling up our strike prices to stay in the thick of things.


MMEX Resources Corp. MMEX

We saw a fantastic intraday run out of MMEX yesterday after once again tagging it in our premarket report. It included a continual climb throughout the session as the stock traded up from a low of .0081 first thing in the morning, to a high of .0169 just prior to the closing bell. That works out to a daily pop of 108%

Considering we alerted MMEX in last Friday morning’s report, and observed a low of .0046 at the time, we’ve now seen an overall increase of 267% from this play in just five trading days,


Athersys, Inc. ATHX

We want to swing back around for a quick mention of ATHX, which was a stock we put on our radars back in February. We would observe a low of 1.10 last month, but for the most part, ATHX just did a lot of sideways trading for the next few weeks.

All that finally began to change this week, with a run to a new high of 2.01 yesterday, marking a 83% rise off of our observed low. We may need to watch for a pullback before jumping back in for another run as the stock is now is extremely overbought territory.


Added Notes:

We want to pay attention to a couple of stocks we’ve come across in the $3-range, that  based on a number of factors, appear to be ripening for rebounds that could very well take each one to the $5 level or higher.

Leju Holdings, Ltd. LEJU – This stock has been trying to get up off of its recent relative lows, and this morning appears to be gapping nominally. We’ll be watching for a more sustained rebound.



Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CYCC
– We’ve identified a strong double-bottom signal from CYCC as well, along with the clear potential for volatility. This one’s going to go on our running watchlist as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VDRM, ABVG & More

ViaDerma, Inc. VDRM

VDRM was the first of a pair of plays from yesterday morning’s extended watchlist. The stock enjoyed a gradually increased PPS over the course of the entire session, and ran into the closing bell with strength.

VDRM’s daily trading range was from .0145 to .03, which works out to an intraday pop of 107%  The double-bag move came on well over twice the 3-month average volume, and as stated above, VDRM ran into the close, so we’re going to be maintaining our watch over the stock for the time being, looking for it to record higher lows and higher highs once again.


Affinity Beverage Group, Inc. ABVG

The other item of interest from yesterday’s premarket watchlist was ABVG, which also commanded a fantastic performance which led to a doubling in PPS.

ABVG ran a cool 100% from its super-subpenny low of .0007 right up to a subpenny high of .0014. Like the aforementioned play, it closed very near to its high-of-day, and did so on immense volume. To be exact, ABVG traded 13 times as many shares as its 3-month average, so we will also have room on our watchscreens for this one in sessions ahead.


Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. KORS – Options Idea

With KORS disappointing on Q3 revenue, as well as issuing shaky guidance, the stock is taking a hit in early trading here in the premarket.

Accordingly, we are going to want to signal a range of bearish options to monitor in the event that an even more precipitous decline is in the cards. We’ll be watching the KORS Weekly $39-36 Puts closely, and choosing our specific strike point/s based upon how the activity unfolds once these earnings revelations are traded upon during regular hours.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPU Continues Epic Run & More

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

Since we tagged SPU in our morning report the Friday before last, the stock has done nothing but break into blue skies. The first day we caught it at a low of 4.00 and its performance since has been nothing short of incredible, with Friday being the fifth consecutive session it recorded higher lows and higher highs.

On Friday, we were remarking about just that, and mentioned that based on premarket activity, we thought SPU could be in line for another solid session despite having reached overbought status.

Our instincts proved reliable, as SPU once set a new high for us, running  24% intraday from 11.54 to 14.29, before closing with strength at 14.25. The new high represented an total increase of 257% over our observed low from just a week earlier! Congrats to anyone who was along for this epic ride!


QUALCOMM, Inc. QCOM – We’ve also got some updated figures on the QCOM Calls we began tracking on Thursday. The QCOM Weekly $58-61 Calls, despite having already brought us chances for gains ranging from 79% up to 575% that day, still produced further opportunities on Friday.

Astonishingly, some of the single-session gains we observed actually made Thursday’s opportunities seem small by comparison!

$58 Calls – Range: 2.10-3.14 – Max Gain: 49%
$58.50 Calls – Range: 1.49-2.63 – Max Gain: 97%
$59 Calls – Range: 1.03-2.16 – Max Gain: 77%
$59.50 Calls – Range: .53-1.60 – Max Gain: 202%
$60 Calls – Range: .15-1.18 – Max Gain: 687%
$60.50 Calls – Range: .05-.56 – Max Gain: 1020%
$61 Calls – Range: .01-.21 – Max Gain: 2000%


Universal Apparel & Textile Co. DKGR

DKGR was an inclusion in Friday’s watchlist, and it saw a modest yet solid intraday upswing. It ran from a low of .036 to .048 for a gain of 33% which came on slightly over twice the average monthly trading volume.

We’ll keep an eye skinned for further activity as the stock maintained more than half its daily advance into the close at .045.


Golden Cross Watch:

We are going to be monitoring both  Anavex, Inc. AVXL and Kopin Corp. KOPN in sessions to come, as both chart appear to be working toward the possibility of a Golden Cross.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Update, Bottom-Watcher & More

Alibaba Group Holding, Ltd. BABA

First up this morning will be a review of yesterday’s options trading idea that we had for BABA as it came off of an earnings beat. The range of contracts we wanted to track were the BABA Weekly $77-81 Calls and while the stock didn’t make a big enough push to facilitate gains in all of them, we saw some nice action on the lower end. The $77-78′s each made two significant intraday swings that could have been traded upon for the following gains:

$77 Calls – Trading Ranges: 2.00-2.75 (+37%), 1.50-2.30 (+53%)
$77.50 Calls – Trading Ranges: 1.55-2.32 (+49%), 1.37-1.87 (+36%)
$78 Calls– Trading Ranges: 1.20-1.90 (+58%), .83-1.45 (+75%)


Nate’s Food Co. NHMD

There was no need to be patient with NHMD after we tagged it for observation just prior to the opening bell in yesterday’s premarket report. We noted that the stock had seen some momentum buildup; we were looking for a carryover and found it.

The sizable intraday swing came early in the session as NHMD ran from a low of .004-.0074, an 85% pop. It enacted a bit of a dip and rip into a close at .006. We’ll leave a space on our radar screens reserved to monitor NHMD moving forward, as volatile subpenny plays like this can often be good for daily flip opportunities.


JTH Holding, Inc. TAX – Bottom-Watcher

We’ve got an interesting chart setup in TAX, which as you can plainly see without the aid of annotation on the snapshot below, is currently looking egregiously oversold. Even as Liberty Tax was recently voted “Best of the Best” by Entrepreneur magazine(>>View PR) the stock has been taking a tremendous beating.

Over the past few sessions the stock seems to have been trying to find support in the low $11-range, and that is where we come in. We like to track stocks after they’ve been pounded into the pavement for possible rebound plays, as our regular readers knew very well. In the case of TAX, a return to its 50DMA at which it was trading less than a month ago, would mean gains exceeding 50% over yesterday’s closing price.
