Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DLTR Recap & More

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

Yesterday turned out to be a nice bullish session for DLTR, making us glad we added it as a focus in our premarket report. No sooner than we updated our readers on the DLTR options ideas we submitted in last Wednesday‘s premarket report, did they take off to new highs once again.

The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls had already provided us with double-bag gain chances, but yesterday’s activity pushed those figures a lot higher. The following numbers represent the maximum possible gains so far over the last six trading sessions:

$78 Calls – Range: .51-2.05 – Max Gain: 301%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .63-2.05 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range:  .48-1.43 – Max Gain: 198%
$79.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.40- Max Gain: 300%
$80 Calls – Range: .30-1.34 – Max Gain: 347%

We can continue to keep these contracts on our radar, with more than three weeks remaining until their expiration date.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Another set of 04/21 options contracts that we’ve been tracking have also fared well, tacking on new highs yesterday,

We slated the PBR 04/21 $9.50 & $10 Calls for observation a week ago today, and must now swing back around to highlight the excellent moves these plays have made in a week’s time.

04/21 $9.50 Calls – Range: .18-.51 – Max Gain: 183%
04/21 $10 Calls – Range: .09-.27 – Max Gain: 200%

As stated on the above mentioned play, these contracts have more than three weeks before expiration, so we’ll continue to keep tracking their activity in coming sessions. Yesterday the stock closed just under the 200DMA of 9.69, and we’ll remain bullish on these ideas if the stock can break past that barrier.

Sphere 3D Corp. ANY

We want to make mention of ANY this morning after noticing a set of interesting circumstances. Just a few days following the closing of a $4.5M direct offering/ private placement, the company has now announced it has been awarded a $3M contract  (>>View PR)

All of this activity on the newsreel is happening concurrently with a potential reversal and rebound on the chart. The stock has been failing to satisfy its $1.00 minimum bid requirement for the better part of nine months now, and will need to get itself back above that mark or it could face delisting after just three years on the NASDAQ.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BCEI Review & More

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. BCEI

On an otherwise relatively quiet day, we observed a nice move in BCEI, a stock we’ve been tracking routinely for quite some time. The most recent occasion upon which we mentioned the stock was a few weeks back on August 18th, and we subsequently observed a low of .81.

Yesterday’s  move from 1.19 up to a new high of 1.41 was not only an intraday push of 18% but it also represented a total upswing of 74% over our observed low. It has been a fairly steady incline over the past ten sessions or so, and we’ll continue to monitor it higher highs and higher lows.

Other Updates

Signal Bay, Inc. SGBY – We alerted our readers to our interest in SGBY on Tuesday, and the entire week has been a a continual uptrend as it has recorded higher highs and higher lows every single day.

From Tuesday low of .0103 to yesterday’s new high at .0219, we’d seen a total three-session increase of 113% and it will remain on our radar going forward.

Enteromedics, Inc. ETRM – We’ve got a history with ETRM that literally stretches back for years, and yesterday thought to re-signal the stock as it was showing a hint of life coming off of the new 52-week low it established just this week.

We mentioned that we’re going to keep an eye on it for a recovery over an extended period, but it fared pretty well in the short-term also, with a nice 21% move from .1383-.167. We’ll continue to track it for higher highs and higher lows in sessions to come.

InvestView, Inc. INVU

We spotted a possible subpenny bottom-play in INVU. It registered a new 52-week low of .0025 last week, traded in a daily range from .0031 up to .0041 yesterday, with accumulation/distribution picking up considerably in recent sessions.  We’re going to keep watch over this one for signs of a recovery off of these lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FPVD Breaks Out & More

Force Protection Video Equipment Corp. FPVD

We were just mentioning how we wanted to stay on FPVD’s trail yesterday morning, after the stock had shown us a nice 64% move on Tuesday.

We identified .036 as a key point of resistance that we wanted to see broken, and not only did that happen, but the stock smashed through and kept on running to an impressive new high.

It traded in a range from .022 on up to a nickel, for an intraday gain of 127% which occurred on roughly 7 times the three-month average volume. From our observed low on Tuesday, it represented a session-over-session swing of 198%

The previous resistance we mentioned at .036 will now be the level FPVD will need to hold support at or above in order to maintain our attention going forward.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Idea

We’ve had some excellent fortune recently with earnings-related options plays in the retail sector, and the opportunity to take advantage of yet another one may be ready to present itself today in the form of WMT.

Increased revenue for the quarter has led the retail giant to increase guidance for the remainder of the year, and the news is causing a notable gap-up here in the premarket. As the activity unfolds, we’ll be looking to possibly take advantage of WMT Weekly $73.50-76 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Ideas & More

Options Ideas

JP Morgan Chase & Co. JPM 
- The first item on our agenda this morning is going to be to formulate an options trading idea for JP Morgan on the heels of the company’s earnings beat this morning, which has the stock gapping up here in the premarket.

We’re going to be zeroing in on the JPM Weekly $63.50-65.50 Calls for potential daytrades, and/or swing trades into tomorrow, depending on how the activity unfolds.


Seagate Technology Holdings, Inc. STX – STX has recently been making a nice move after a large gap-up earlier this week. In the premarket it is pressing past the 200DMA(30.20) and looks as if it could continue to truck higher and fill the gap on the chart to $33.

We have a couple corresponding options ideas that could be in line for some nice gains; for daytrading opportunities this week, the STX Weekly $30-31 Calls, and the STX 07/22 $30.50-31.50 Calls for potential swing trades into next week.

Updates on Recent Interests

SAExploration Holdings, Inc. SAEXLast week, we tagged SAEX as a bottom-watch play and after a few sessions of mostly sideways trading, the stock has finally begun to get some legs this week. The bottom, and our observed low, came in at .1385, and yesterday SAEX hit .298. That works out to a four session swing of 115%


Gold Resource Corp. GORO -  We’ve been tracking GORO closely since we entered it into the conversation at the end of June. At the time we had observed a PPS low of 3.19, and yesterday the stock continued to push its upper limits with a new high of 5.50. That represents an overall swing of 72% and a new 52-week high as well. Firmly in blue sky breakout territory, we’ll continue to keep an eye on GORO.


Lot78, Inc. LOTE – After tracking it to some nice gains last week, we saw LOTE pull back slightly yesterday, to a swing low of .016 before it rebounded 37% back to .022. We’ll look for the stock to retest our previously observed high of .03, the breaching of which would put this one into blue sky breakout mode as well!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Pharma Watchlist & More

Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ATNM

We want to start things off this morning by taking a look at ATNM, for a couple of reasons. First, from a technical standpoint, the chart appears to be coming off of a relative bottom, and a number of indicators suggest that a sizable upswing could occur in coming sessions.

Those include a MACD and Histogram that look to be gearing up for a possible cross into bullish territory. Each of the past two times that occurred, the stock saw an appreciable move to the upside. The RSI also looks to be coming off of being oversold- we’ll be looking for a break of that 50-line, and the registering of higher lows and higher highs as ATNM attempts to establish a continued trend off of its recent lows.

The other factor that is indirectly drawing us to ATNM is the fact that it operates in the Pharma sector, which is sure to be at the forefront of the news with a couple of huge buyouts. Pfizer has bought Anacor (ANAC) and Luminex bought Nanosphere (NSPH). Whenever we see groundbreaking events happening in biopharma, there tends to be a rise in overall activity for the industry.

That’s why, in addition to ATNM, we’ll be placing the following couple of stocks on watch as we kick off another trading week: Inovio Biomedical, Inc. INO, and Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. SRNE

3D Systems Corp. DDD

After an impressive run-up on the chart which lasted from January to April, DDD has taken a pretty substantial pounding in the month of May.

The stock came down to bounce off of its 200DMA on Thursday, and recorded higher highs and higher lows on Friday. We’ll look for a continuation of that trend into today, and monitor DDD for a possible recovery. We will need to see the stock hold support at or above the current 200DMA of 11.73 on any pullbacks in order for it to hold our interest. A return to its PPS levels from the end of April from this juncture would produce potential gains of at least 50%
