Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GWPH, MCRS, COCO & More

GW Pharmaceuticals, Inc. GWPH

We were hot on the trail of GWPH last week, first bringing to our readers’ attention on Tuesday, and following it pretty intensely after that. It was another winning call, and we were rewarded by huge gains in the options contracts that we were tracking.

If you refer to Tuesday’s report, we put the $80-85 Calls on watch. At the time, the $80 Calls were trading at a low of 2.80, and on Friday, they reached an incredible $15. That’s a mega-move of 471% in just four sessions!

The $85 Calls were even more impressive, starting out at a low of .35 following Tuesday’s tag, and absolutely skyrocketing to Friday’s high of 11.30. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe how pleased we were with that titanic run, which amounted to an intraweek increase of 3,128%

GWPH serves as an excellent example of why our daily coverage of the hottest opportunities on the markets has included more and more options plays than ever before. It is a great way to leverage relatively small moves by a stock, into what you can see are some astonishing chances for major-league gains.

An added note: Granted the fact that GWPH is a cannabis related play, we thought we’d mention the fact that New York just became the latest state to green-light a medical marijuana program for its residents. Between that, the upcoming 1st Annual WeedStock Conference in Denver, and the approaching start of Washington State’s legal sales, we wouldn’t be surprised if the marijuana sector began to pick up as we head into mid-summer. We’ll be keeping this and other related stocks on closer watch over the next several weeks.

MICROS Systems, Inc. MCRS

MCRS took off on Friday when word of a rumored buyout hit the street, and we now have confirmation that Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) will indeed acquire MCRS at a price of $68/share. We’re going to be peeking our heads in on this play as we kick off a new trading week.

The stock is gapping up close to the exercise price of the buyout this morning; often when we run across a situation such as this, the stock can have a hard time superseding the buyout price. However, if MCRS can get over the $68-mark, there could be some room left to the upside that would cause us to take interest in the $65-70 Calls.

Currently, the $65 Calls are trading at 3.75, and the $70’s are trading at 1.35- we’ll be monitoring those closely once we get a feel for how MCRS is going to respond.

Corinthian Colleges, Inc. COCO

COCO is catching our attention today as a stock that absolutely fell off a cliff last week, and appears to want to begin to retrace its steps, after bouncing on Friday, and continuing to gap-up in the pre-market this morning.

We always like to follow plays like this one closely, as stocks in recovery-mode have rewarded us time and time again in the past. News out today reported that the company will be receiving the necessary funds to continue its daily operations.

SANTA ANA, Jun 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — Corinthian Colleges, Inc. (Nasdaq:COCO) announced today that it has reached a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Department of Education (the “Department”) that maintains uninterrupted daily operations at its schools, until the Company and the Department finalize a more detailed transition plan. Corinthian currently serves about 72,000 students at 107 campuses and online. >>> FULL PR

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DEWM, FITX & Much More

Dewmar International BMC, Inc. DEWM

DEWM is a stock that we want to add to our radar as we kick off another trading week. Apart from recently gaining a steam, the stock gapped up on Friday, and followed that with a classic dip-and-rip.There are a couple of interesting aspects with regard to DEWM’s business; in a recent interview, CEO Marco Moran announced Dewmar’s interest in pursuing the industrial hemp and medical marijuana market. We know from recent experience that even the suggestion of entry into this new and hot sector can produce significant gains.

Additionally, the flagsghip product of DEWM’s current business is being offered in over 20 Walmart locations, and the company has the intent to expand thart number as much as possible in 2014. That makes DEWM one story that we are definitely going to want to follow moving forward.

The current chart on DEWM looks pretty ripe as well with a possible upcoming Golden Cross in the making:

FastFunds Financial, Inc. FFFC
This is another cannabis play that we’ll be watching today on the heels of the following PR:

Frozen Food Gift Group, Inc. FROZ

FROZ has some potential merger news out this morning that you might also want to take a look at:

Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc. FITX

In addition to ramping up on Friday, and looking like it wants to gap up this morning, FITX came with an intriguing PR today that we had to pass along:

MADISON HEIGHTS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / February 10, 2014 / Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc. (FITX), is proud to announce that it has accelerated its construction and build-out plans for what will become the world’s largest and most advanced legal cannabis production facility.

Bill Chaaban stated “it is important for our company to receive its license from Health Canada as soon as possible. To fulfill this goal, we have redesigned the layout of our standing 27,000 square foot building to become a self-sustained complete operational production facility. It will have all of the state of the art technologies implemented into the design of our larger facility. This building will be completely compliant with our obligations as promised to Health Canada.

While we retrofit the existing building we will continue the build-out of our 53,000 square foot facility. We have implemented cGMP and USP 797 design and work flow models into the design and build-out of our buildings. Security fencing will begin to be installed in the next two weeks. We have decided to fence the complete 10.3 acre site to facilitate and accommodate the eventual build-out of the entire property. We will be posting pictures and videos throughout the build-out process to keep shareholders informed of our progress.”

From Friday’s Extended Watchlist

The following plays off of our Extended Watchlist made some notable, albeit modest moves during Friday’s session:

GT Advanced Technologies, Inc. GTAT

Extended Watchlist:

GOGO, AZC, PHOT, CBMX & Extended Watchlist


Yesterday after appearing as a focus in our morning report, GOGO responded by posting yet another solid performance. After sinking to a daily low of 27.11, we witnessed a 12% intraday move to 30.26 on twice the 3mo. average volume. That was followed by a strong close, as it held the majority of its gains at 29.70.

The following screenshot captures the activity of the options we were interested in: The 01/18 $30 Calls made a 78% intraday move, and with the way GOGO is trading up pre-market, it’s fair to expect these contracts to be pushed even deeper into the money, adding to our already impressive chances for profit.

Augusta Resources Corp.  AZC

AZC also had a positive showing after yesterday’s report; the stock traded in a range from 1.06-1.25, giving us the opportunity to bank up to an 18% gain. We were correct in assuming that this recovery play was worth our attention, and a return to pre-11/20 levels would still mean significant gains from where it sits now.

Growlife, Inc. PHOT

We’ve continuously covered PHOT for over a year now, and the stock has definitely brought us some prime opportunities for sizable gains, as a quick glance at the chart will show. A recent dip back to the .06-range has been immediately followed by a significant bounce. We are looking at resistance sitting at .095 and from there it has a good chance to re-test recent highs.

We’d like to see higher lows today to confirm that PHOT is indeed back on an uptrend.

To take an even more in-depth look at the PHOT chart, view the video we prepared this morning:

CombiMatrix Corp. CBMX

CBMX came off of yesterday’s extended watchlist to have a big day. The stock opened at 2.48, and would ultimately touch a high of 4.44, which was good for a 79% intraday rip. This came on roughly 48X times the 3mo. average volume, so a stock with this kind of momentum flowing through it will surely continue to be on our watchlist as we close out the week.
