Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Potential Bottom-Plays & More

Potential Rebound Plays

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM  -We caught USRM for some nice gain opportunities a couple of weeks back. We had initially begun tracking this play after mentioning it on the morning of February 27th. Subsequent to that, we had witnessed an impressive run from a low of .014  to .0545, for a 289% gain in a span of just two sessions.

That was followed by an expected period of consolidation, but it appears as if USRM has found support at .0175. We’re going to want to return to monitoring this play more closely on the chance that it could be gearing up for another run. If it produced a move even a fraction of what we saw before, it will be worth its slot on our watchscreens.


Iconic Brands, Inc. ICNB – Speaking of familiar plays that could be in line for a rebound in upcoming sessions, we want to swing back around to ICNB this week. We had tracked this one to some decent gains after tagging it for observation on January 24th. Following that, the stock would trade in a range from .018 up to .0339, a respectable move of 88%

But like the above-mentioned stock, after its run, it basically underwent a big-time consolidation which lasted nearly a whole month. That brings us up to yesterday, when we noticed ICNB giving off something of a rebound signal. We’ll go back to watching more closely in the next few sessions.

Aralez Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ARLZ – Bottom Watcher

ARLZ has been falling off a cliff this week, and despite the fact that it may yet have further to fall, we’re going to want to begin monitoring it as it attempts to sniff out a solid support level. There could definitely be some opportunities waiting for traders that can properly time the recovery.

Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF  (JNUG) – Reminder

Apart from some quick chances for early gains yesterday, our freshly formulated options idea for JNUG may need some time to mature. That’s why we chose an expiration date a couple of weeks out. We’ll continue to have the JNUG 03/31 $7-8 Calls on our radars moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review, Fresh Ideas & More

Wynn Resorts Ltd. WYNN – Options Review

It was the wide range of options contracts we highlighted in the WYNN chain that stole the show among our interests from yesterday morning’s premarket report.  We signaled the WYNN Weekly $93-96.50 Calls for observation, and not surprisingly, saw appreciable intraday gains from every single one of them.

Just take a look at the excellent single-session profits that were on the table for traders who fell in step with our idea. There was literally no way to go wrong with these selections, but at the top end of the range, the $96.50’s were obviously the star of the show with a nearly incomprehensible intraday move of more than 2700%!

$93 Calls – Trading Range: 2.98-7.68 – Max Gain: 158%
$93.50 Calls – Trading Range: 3.61-7.15 – Max Gain: 98%
$94 Calls– Trading Range: 2.53-6.20 – Max Gain: 145%
$94.50 Calls – Trading Range: 3.71-6.08 – Max Gain: 64%
$95 Calls – Trading Range: 2.40-5.62 – Max Gain: 134%
$95.50 Calls– Trading Range: 2.43-5.00 – Max Gain: 106%
$96 Calls – Trading Range: 1.47-5.00 – Max Gain: 240%
$96.50 Calls– Trading Range: .15-4.30 – Max Gain: 2766%

The stock is gapping up again this morning, so we expect the figures on these gains to be pushed even higher upon commencement of trading at the opening bell. We’ll also look for opportunities at a higher strike range with the $100-103 Calls as well.

Fresh Options Ideas

We’ve formulated a number of other options trading ideas to close out the week, but please heed our standard warning regarding Friday trading of weekly contracts- Only expert traders should attempt such a high-difficulty and risky venture. Both of the following are options chains from which we’ve pulled down mammoth gains on countless occasions in the past: 

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – For the SPY, which of course is a general market analog, we’re going to be monitoring Weekly $205-207 Calls with both the general markets and oil gapping up this morning.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – For PBR we’re zeroing in on the Weekly $5-6 Calls. PBR has made notable intraday upswings on more than one occasion this week, and a continuation of that pattern could lead to some nice gain figures for these contracts.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VNDA, NQ & More

NQ Mobile, Inc. NQ

Yesterday, we pointed out all the reasons why we felt that NQ was in a good position to make a run, and we certainly hope folks took it to heart, because the stock followed it up with an solid session.

We first observed a morning low of 9.40, and NQ subsequently made a healthy move to a high of 10.85 on the afternoon, which was good for an intraday gain of 15%

On the options side of things, the $10 Calls dipped as low as .35, and went on to trade as high as a 1.00. This provides a good example of why we’ve gotten more and more into trading options on big board plays. Even just a modest move on the chart can translate into huge gains on the right contracts.

NQ is gapping up to the tune of another 5% this morning, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on things as we head into week’s end.

So far, from the low we observed following our tag of NQ toward the end of last month (6.25) we’ve seen gains on the order of 77%

Vanda Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VNDA

VNDA was another NASDAQ-listed stock that appeared in yesterday’s report on the Extended Watchlist. It would trade in a range from 11.00-12.99, an 18% increase. Another modest move compared to what we’re accustomed to with the pennies, but coming from a big board play, 18% in a single afternoon is very impressive.

Like NQ, VNDA was trading near a relative bottom when we passed it along to readers, and with this new-found momentum, it will be interesting to see what happens next.

Whether or not VNDA can crack through its 50DMA (13.04) is going to be the deciding factor as to whether there’s more upside here. Yesterday’s high came in just shy of that mark, so we’ve got some resistance to contend with, but we’ll certainly be monitoring very closely for a break of that level on the chart.

Shamika 2 Gold, Inc. SHMX

SHMX is a sub-penny breakout play that we want to add to our radar this morning. Yesterday the stock traded 9x its 3-month average volume, and traded in a range from .0003-.0006. It always a good idea to be cautious when dealing with these triple-zero stocks, but as most of you know, when the potential risk is high, the potential rewards can be even higher.

We’re going to monitor this play for further activity, more specifically, a potential dip-and-rip. Should SHMX taper off and pull back, that’s where we’ll be waiting to strike. Correctly timing the bottom on one of these super–subpenny stocks can treat traders to a heck of a bounceplay as we’ve seen so many times in the past.

Side Note: AAPL Options

AAPL continued to break out yesterday past last week’s swing high of 644.17. Remember, on Monday we reminded everyone that the AAPL options chain was a good candidate to provide us with opportunities over the course of the week, and that has certainly been true thus far.  The $640 Calls were as cheap as 1.35 on that day, and by yesterday, they were going for as much as 9.50.

Huge moves like that have almost become commonplace, as we’ve tracked AAPL through a more-than 100-dollar increase in just the past couple of months.
