Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUM Update & More

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: QURE Recap & More

uniQure N.V. QURE

We included QURE in our premarket report on Thursday, after the company’s hemophilia gene therapy treatment was advanced to Phase III testing.

What followed was an enormous influx of volume, and two really solid, bullish sessions, advancing from a low of 11.55 on Thursday to a new high of 19.34 on Friday. That works out to a very respectable two-day swing of 67%

It’s the highest PPS QURE has attained since 2015, and the two sessions come in at numbers 1 and 2 highest volume days of all time, so we’d say our alert was timed with absolute precision.


Organovo Holdings, Inc. ONVO

We included ONVO in Friday morning’s extended watchlist, and it also put up a pretty good performance on the day.

From a low of 1.45, the stock traded as high as 1.80 on fairly heavy volume. We’ll want to see the stock continue to establish higher highs and higher lows as it’s coming off of its bottom.


PetMed Express, Inc. PETS

We’d like to signal a post-earnings options idea for PETS this morning, after the company set new records with its Q2 numbers. It’s gapping up significantly in the premarket, and the volume it traded on Friday leading into the release was the highest all month.  We’re going to put the PETS 11/17 $40-50 Calls on watch moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INFI Review & More

Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. INFI

The stock with the most notable performance from yesterday morning’s watchlist was definitely INFI, which began trending up in the premarket, and continued its climb throughout the entire session.

The stock traded up from a low of 2.44 to 3.75, which works out to an intraday rise of 54% and it came on roughly 38X its monthly average volume. An early pullback from profit taking this morning would be a likely scenario, but if INFI can find support at a higher point than yesterday’s low, from



AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ACRX

After the FDA’s rejecion of the company’s ‘Dsuvia” opioid painkiller, ACRX took a monstrous pounding yesterday down to its lowest price in three months.

As you can see on the chart, it fell all the way down to an area of support it had established back in July. We’ll be interested to monitor this play for a bottom, which could come at any time. Moves generated by FDA news, whether positive or negative, tend to be over-exaggerated and are almost always followed by a course correction.


Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corp ITEK

Here we have an example of being extremely ‘early to the party’ as we sometimes say. We alerted on ITEK back in July, after which point it saw a low of .89. It mostly traded sideways throughout the remainder of the summer, but recently began quite an impressive climb.

This morning, the stock hit news highs of 4.15 in premarket trading on news of a proposed merger with a clinical stage gene therapy company. It may have took a few months to realize, but it works out to an increase of 366%

For an added angle going forward, we’ll also signal the ITEK 10/20 $2.50 Calls for possible daytrades and/or swing trades into next week, and the 11/17 $2.50 & $5.00 Calls for a longer term idea.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KOOL, TIF Recaps & More

Endocyte, Inc. ECYT

We initially took notice of ECYT on Monday morning just as the company announced it had completed a worldwide license for its prostate cancer treatment now moving into Phase-3 development.

The stock made a solid 130% rip from 1.63 to 3.75 that morning, but it was only just getting started. Yesterday morning the stock ran hard once again, reaching its peak at a new annual high of 6.55. That puts the total on our two-day observed increased of 302% while volume over the same period has been literally hundreds of times greater than the monthly average prior to Monday’s bombshell PR.


Tiffany & Co. TIF – Options Update

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we’ve been tracking the TIF 10/20 $92-93 Calls since the morning of September 28th. TIF stock has maintained its gradual ascent since that time, and with that, we’ve seen the potential gains made off of our ideas grow along with it.

The following ranges represent the lows from the 28th to the highs achieved during yesterday’s session:

$92 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.20 – Max Gain: 120%
$92.50 Calls – Range: .85-2.19  – Max Gain: 158%.
$93 Calls – Range: .83-2.15 – Max Gain: 159%


Cesca Therapeutics Inc. KOOL

After including KOOL in yesterday morning’s watchlist, we watched as the stock made a very nice intraday run on the chart with the help of some positive news.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a Notice of Allowance on the company’s patent application for its proprietary method for separating target cells from blood, marrow, and other sources.

That prompted a solid boost from 3.96 to 6.44 on the day, marking an intraday push of 63% which was accompanied by the trading of 223X more shares than the monthly average!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AVEO Recap & More

AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AVEO

Swinging back around to discuss AVEO is our top order of business this morning after the stock soared to new highs yesterday. We placed this stock on watch on June 23rd, subsequently mentioning it several times.

On the day of our initial alert, AVEO traded for as little as 1.05 per share, and after multiple weeks in a near-contnual uptrend, the gains have been fantastic. Yesterday AVEO reached new four year highs of 3.19, marking an overall swing of 204%

Volume over the same period has been greatly heightened, and yesterday’s close at 3.15 was a strong one, so even though AVEO has had momentum-mover status for several sessions, we’re going to want to continue to watch it closely.


Inotek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ITEK

We’re always looking for a good bottom-bouncer, which is why we want to take note of ITEK this morning after disappointing study results on the company’s eye drug sent shares tumbling yesterday.

As we point out on the chart snapshot below, the stock has been beaten back into oversold territory, leaving a big gap on the chart. We’ll place it on watch for the filling of that gap, which from present pricing would spell gains of up to 60%
