Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, New Ideas

ITUS Corp. ITUS 

As we were just mentioning yesterday, we first highlighted ITUS in Thursday’s premarket report, and later that day we observed a low of 1.92. Friday and Monday both brought the recording of higher highs and higher lows, and yesterday followed suit.

We watched as ITUS pushed upward once again, trading in a daily range from 4.00 to a new high of 5.15. It worked out to an intraday move of 29%, and an overall increase of 168% over the low we witnessed on the morning of our initial alert. For a stock that was already approaching $2/share when we came upon it, that’s a fantastic four-day swing.


IZEA, Inc. IZEA

Speaking of higher priced stocks we’ve called that have made some impressive moves, we’re talking about IZEA again as well. We called it on Monday morning, and saw a move from 4.54 to a high of 6.35 (+40%) that day, and specifically reiterated our signal yesterday morning.

It’s a good thing we did, because the stock wasn’t finished running. It made a modest 25% move up from a low of 5.73 to a new high of 7.17. That works out to an admirable two-day swing of 58%


Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Recap

Yesterday morning we noted the fact that AAPL was showing signs of a reversal and rebound after a selloff period. We mentioned that we’d radar the AAPL Weekly $150-155 Calls for quick-strike trade opportunities and our idea worked very nicely.

Regardless of which strike price was chosen in our selected range, the chances for considerable intraday profits were on the table. The potential gains on the day were as follows:

$150 Calls – Range: 2.30-4.10 – Max Gain: 78%
$152.50 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.07 – Max Gain: 107%.
$155 Calls – Range: .28-.69 – Max Gain: 146%


Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We also want to talk about MARA this morning, as we’re noticing an interesting chart setup currently in effect. The laast time we mentioned the stock was in July, and while we were a little early to party as it was still searching for a bottom, it didn’t take more than a few weeks for the stock to ultimately establish support and launch a rebound off a low of .22.

Since that time, the stock has made a nice move to the tune of 127% as it reached a high of .50 this week. We’re going to look out closely for a potential breach of a previous resistance point at .56, after which the stock could see another leg-up. As you can see on the snapshot below, the MACD is executing a bullish cross while the RSI shows MARA about to break into the Power Zone.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADPT Review & More

Adeptus Health, Inc. ADPT

We tagged ADPT in yesterday morning’s report after noticing some abnormal price action and volume in Tuesday post-market trading and in the premarket. It’s the first time we’ve ever mentioned the stock in our long history, and it set the bar high with an excellent rip right out of the starting gate.

The stock shot up like a rocket from a low of 1.12 to a high 3.70, which works out to a 230% pop. Following that huge morning run the stock pulled back and is searching for support, but with the kind of volume and activity we witnessed yesterday, we won’t write this one off entirely. The potential for another bounce is definitely there.


Bravatek Solutions, Inc. BVTK  - We were just mentioning yesterday morning how a participant in our chatroom raised a flag on BVTK Tuesday before it went on a huge run of more than 500% on enormous volume. That momentum carried over really nicely into yesterday’s session, as the stock traded in a range from .0009 early on, all the way to a new high of .0035.

That 288% intraday pop coupled with the previous days enormous increase reinforces what we’ve been talking about in terms of certain plays in the subpenny arena being on fire right now.

To further enhance our point, the big gainers didn’t stop there for the daily trader’s chat. We picked up on a key PR put out by Innovativ Media Group, Inc. INMG tying them to cannabis shortly following the opening bell yesterday, and that put up an impressive performance for the day as well, running 195% from .0019 to .0056.

This call was made well after our premarket reports hit the wires, which demonstrates why we encourage all of our readers to also join in on our daily in-session live chats. Once again- to participate, simply create/sign into your Skype account and send a contact request to ‘stocksumo’.


Celsion Corp. CLSN

We also want to flag CLSN, which put out an interesting PR this morning pertaining to preclinical studies on its bladder cancer treatment under development. (>>View PR)

Meanwhile, the stock itself has been stair-stepping up off of its bottom since February, and must return to the 1.00-level or face delistment from the NASDAQ. We’ll be interested to keep an eye on this play in the weeks and months ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VNR Recap & More


Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC. VNR

We began watching VNR as it hit its annual lows back in the fall, initially tagging it in our report from October 6th. We’ve seen some pretty impressive swings since then, and have routinely included the stock in several of our reports.

Most recently was the first trading day of 2017, and we’ve since witnessed another bullish push out of VNR as it has traded in a range from .70-1.11 (+58%) over the past couple of weeks. From our overall observed low of .46 in VNR just after our first alert in October, this week’s new high represents a 141% increase.

Next we’ll be looking for the stock to make a run at a key resistance point sitting at the 200DMA of 1.17



Alkame Holdings, Inc. ALKM

We’ve been tracking ALKM since Wednesday’s premarket report, and over these couple of sessions, we have seen a decent trading range on the stock.

From Wednesday’s early low of .0014, ALKM has touched a high of .002, which works out to a swing of 43% to the upside. We’ll leave the stock on our radar, and be on the lookout for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Avinger, Inc. AVGR – Reminder

We noticed AVGR getting ready for a heavy gap-up after bouncing off of its bottom yesterday. Although it only rose a modest 17% upon the open from 2.90-3.40, we’re going to still want to track its movements heading into next week, as it may yet continue to pile up more gains.

Several indicators on the chart are still looking ripe for that possibility despite all the lost ground it recovered  with yesterday’s gap-up.


Microsoft Corp. MSFT -  Options Idea

We wanted to signal a range of options ideas we feel have potential after Microsoft beat the Street’s estimates in yesterday’s post-market earnings report.

We’re going to be tracking the MSFT Weekly $64.50-66 Calls, starting at the lower strike price, and rolling up if the stock looks like it’s going to continue to break out and push the strike price into the money. The premarket high on MSFT is 65.68, so in order to consider rolling up to $66′s, we would want to see a break past that mark.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap & More

Seagate Technologies plc. STX – Options Recap

Although it would end up reversing and heading lower as the day progressed, STX did ride the bullish wave off of its healthy earnings beat for a solid upswing inside the first hour of trading yesterday.

That did facilitate a window of opportunity on the options contracts we were tracking, the STX Weekly $41-43.50 Calls. Traders who were quick on the draw yesterday morning could have taken away a piece of the following moves:

$41 Calls – Range: 1.78-5.28 – Max Gain: 196%
$41.50 Calls – Range: 2.00-4.48 – Max Gain: 124%
$42 Calls – Range: 1.99-4.50 – Max Gain: 126%
$42.50 Calls – Range: 2.11-3.45 – Max Gain: 63%
$43 Calls – Range:  .86-3.00 – Max Gain: 249%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .78-2.77 – Max Gain: 255%

We did signal our hunch that there would be a reversal in-session and a corresponding idea for the Weekly $46 Puts in our live traders chat, and those ended up doing quite well also, subsequently running from .60-3.29 (+448%) as STX continued to consolidate into the close.

It’s another example of why we urge any of our readers that want to get in on our daily traders chats to get a Skype contact request over to username ‘stocksumo’. That’s all it takes, and you can stay up to the minute on changing ideas throughout the day, and submit some of your own!


Avinger, Inc. AVGR

The current situation with the AVGR chart has caught our eye this midweek as the stock reversed course this week after a steep and rapid decline. We’re seeing increased activity in the premarket and AVGR has pushed its way up regaining much of the ground it has recently lost.

Currently trading around the 3.00 mark, a return to its recent swing high from roughly a month ago would mean gains of up to 50% so we’ll be monitoring AVGR over coming sessions for a possible continuation of the recovery that is presently in effect.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPU, MAXD Recap & More

Friday’s Hot Picks

We had a couple plays that we tagged in Friday morning’s premarket report that went on to provide traders with a good chance at some intraday gains.

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU - We put SPU on watch after noticing the strong session it recorded on Thursday, and the momentum carryover was pretty impressive. From an early low of 4.35, took of and hit a high of 7.90. That worked out to an intraday jump of 82% which came on over 17X the 3-month average volume.

______

MaxSound Corp. MAXD - Also performing well was MAXD, which we tracked over an impressive range from the .002′s to the .008′s back in early April. We circled back around to it at an opportune time on Friday, as the stock launched from .0043 on up to .0064, logging a 49% pop on the day.


Marinus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. MRNS – Update

We want to give our readers a quick reminder on MRNS this morning, a stock we recently tagged with the intent of seeing it try to fill the massive gap on the chart.

After seeing 1.35 following that alert, the stock began to do just that as it hit a high of 2.23 on Friday. That’s a 65% run-up so far, and we’re going to be very interested to see how the activity unfolds as we kick off this new trading week.


Avinger, Inc. AVGR

Speaking of stocks with enormous gaps to fill on their charts, we also want to begin monitoring AVGR, which, as you can see on the snapshot below, is in a position similar to that of MRNS when we began tracking it a couple weeks back.

The stock is searching for a bottom after taking a massive gut punch in the form of a three-dollar gap-down. While it appears it may yet have some bottoming out to do, it’s egregiously oversold at the moment, and we’ll want to be there when its own recovery begins as the resulting rebound could carry some substantial gain opportunities along with it.
