Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AYTU Review & More

Aytu Bioscience Inc. AYTU

Our attention is being drawn back to AYTU this morning, a stock that we placed on watch at the end of March. From the low of 1.55 we observed on the morning of our initial report on the 27th, AYTU had been gradually stair-stepping its way up the chart, reaching a high of 2.47 just last week (+59%).

This morning in the premarket, AYTU reached a brand new high of 2.90, marking an increase of 87% over our initially observed low, and leaving us anxious to see how the activity unfolds from here.


Amplitech Group, Inc. AMPG – Update

We also want to provide another quick update on AMPG, which printed new highs yet again yesterday for the second consecutive session. The stock hit .065, which marks a 51% rise over the .043 low we witnessed at the beginning of last month, when we released our first Special Report on AMPG.

A lot has happened in that span, which you can learn more about by exploring the links in the update we provided on AMPG in yesterday’s premarket report. We would not be at all surprised to see AMPG continue to add to the gains we’ve seen thus far.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEA:

Friday was a fantastic day for the markets, and yesterday was quite poor by comparison. Today it appears as if the see-saw may continue with another bullish session, so we’re going to place the SPY 05/15 $281-282.50 Calls on watch to coincide with our current market sentiments.

Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX – Recap

Following the FDA fast-tracking of the company’s Annamycin drug, yesterday morning we noted that this stock we began tracking late last month had risen by 89% (.7772-1.47) right on the heels of the good news. It would appear that the development took some time to fully filter through the investment community, because even we weren’t prepared for the enormous continuation of momentum that has now transpired.

From yesterday’s 1.25 low-of-day, MBRX shot up like a rocket and ultimately reached a new peak of 3.15. That worked out to a single session surge of 152% From our initially observed low, it represents an increase of 305% in just over three weeks of trading. This has not turned out to be our biggest stock-only call of the year so far just yet, but it is right up there among the best.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Options & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL -Options Idea

Apple has been getting beaten back over the past several sessions, even as the company unveiled new product upgrades in Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and the Goldman Sachs/Mastercard-powered Apple Card. We will look for a rebound on the heels of some relief in the Apple camp over the company’s international dispute with Qualcomm currently under review at the International Trade Commission.

We’re going to radar the AAPL Weekly $187.50-190 Calls and track the activity there for the rest of the week. The stock has been especially volatile on a daily basis over the past week, as compared to the previous couple of months. It could lead to some sizable opportunities for us.


More Fresh Ideas

Shoe Carnival, Inc. SCVL – The setup on Shoe Carnival couldn’t be much better at the moment. The stock had come down to its lowest prices since last year prior to yesterday’s big post-market earnings beat.

We are going to want to put some contracts in this chain on watch as well- particularly, the SCVL 04/18 $35-40 Calls.
_____

Centene Corp. CNC – Centene just got pushed down well below what appeared to be a strong double bottom, and is now trading at new 52-week lows. We’re going to begin monitoring on a longer-term basis for an eventual recovery, with the CNC 09/20 $50-55 Calls.

Briggs & Stratton Corp. BGG

We want to close things out this week by commenting on Briggs & Stratton’s gap down to its lowest PPS since the the early 1990′s. While it may see more short term losses first, we still want to radar this as a bottom-watch play.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Watch Play & More

Aytu Bioscience, Inc. AYTU

We’re always on the lookout for a bargain, and we may have a prime bottom play opportunity in AYTU in the near future. The stock has been on the downtrend for a couple of months, and is presently very heavily oversold.

We’re going to put this play on our radar and watch carefully for a bottom-bounce which appears to be imminent. Gaining back even half of the ground its recently lost would mean more than a dounble from the current PPS.


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We’re also looking at the SPY today after a lackluster finish to last week. Market sentiment still appears to be bearish as we ready ourselves to kick off this fresh trading week.

We are going to be tracking a set of bearish options, particularly the SPY 10/08 $288.50-$287.50 Puts. Keep in mind that these expire at the end of the day, thus should be treated as weekly options on a Friday. Only expert traders with disposable income should attempt these kinds of trades.
