Pareteum Corp. TEUM
The last time we mentioned TEUM was December 8th, shortly after which time the stock was trading for as little as .661. At the time the company had no involvement in the trendy cryptocurrency space.
Flash forward to this week, and an announcement that the company is adding blockchain capability for cryptocurrency support on its global cloud billing platform has the stock soaring to new highs.
TEUM hit 3.15 yesterday, which marks an increase of 377% in less than three weeks’ time. Volume for the day was on the order of roughly five times the monthly average.
Bitcoin itself has been making a nice rebound after the pullback which followed its big run to nearly $20K, and there is no reason to suspect that the push toward blockchain related technologies, both cryptocurrency and otherwise, is just a passing fad.
INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY - Options Recap
We made our interest in the INSY 01/19 $8 & $9 Calls known yesterday morning, and it barely took any time at all for our ideas to come to fruition.
As we were mentioning yesterday, the company recently initiated Phase II trials of its synthetic Cannabidiol (CBD) Oral Solution for Treatment of Refractory Childhood Absence Epilepsy, and the FDA granted Fast Track status to the ‘drug’ for the treatment of a rare genetic disorder (Prader-Willi).
This news allowed for some very nice moves in our designated contracts. The $8 Calls ran from .35-1.00 for a gain of 186%, while the $9′s traded up from .20-.55, trending up 175% on the day.
Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE
We also want to swing back to remind our readers of last week’s alert on AMPE. We tagged this play seven days ago (four trading days), and saw it trading for as little as 2.57. As of yesterday’s high of 3.55, the stock had thus far risen by 38%
The stock’s peak PPS represented a new annual high, so we’ll be interested to see how the stock performs in blue skies.
