Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recaps, Fresh Ideas & More

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. CMG 

Our extreme success on the options front continues. We cited the CMG chart setup as the reason for wanting to have our eye on the CMG Weekly $297.50-305 Calls yesterday morning, and were very pleased with the intraday performance we witnessed. It also didn’t hurt that the founder stepped down to make room for a new CEO, which went over well with the investment community.

Regardless of which strike price was chosen, there were some serious multi-bag single-session gains there for the taking:

$297.50 Calls – Range: 1.50-8.10 – Max Gain: 440%
$300 Calls – Range: 1.15-6.50 – Max Gain: 465%
$302.50 Calls – Range: .77-5.00 – Max Gain: 549%
$305 Calls – Range: .54-3.83 – Max Gain: 609%


Fresh Idea:

The Kroger Co. KR – We want to signal some options to watch for Kroger as well after the company tidily topped 3Q forecasts with this morning’s earnings report. We’re going to be looking to the KR Weekly 25.50-27.50 Calls to try to take advantage of the conditions. We’re also anxious to listen in on the conference call slated for later this morning.

Crypto Recaps

Whatever you refer to it as, virtual currency, digital currency, or cryptocurrency, the rise of Bitcoin has fueled a hugely popular market sector, and caused many small companies to shift focus to attempt to capitalize on what has become pure hysteria.  Bitcoin breached $11,300 yesterday, and as a result, some of the BTC-related plays we’ve tagged have enjoyed really nice moves on the chart.

Integrated Ventures, Inc. INTV – Having recently lauched its bitcoin mining efforts, INTV is a stock that we slated for observation in our watchlist yesterday morning. The stock responded with a solid run from .551 to .97, marking an intraday pop of 76% on more than ten times its monthly average volume.

Peer to Peer Network PTOP – This one appeared in our watchlist earlier this month on the 7th. We came early to the party on this one, but with Bitcoin setting its new all-time high once again yesterday, it woke up in a big way. That included a serious intraday move of 1780% as PTOP traded from a low of .0005-.0094. It represented the stock’s highest price in three years, and a new all time record high volume, with over 400 million shares changing hands on the day.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recap of NHMD & More

Nate’s Food Co. NHMD

First up today is a recap of NHMD, a stock that we’ve been continuously tracking since February, and one that has brought us multiple chances to profit. We revisited it in March after witnessing a consolidation to our observed low of .0012. It has since rocketed to new highs, breaking through its 200DMA and running to .014 yesterday. That marked an impressive run of 1066% over a span of less than two months!

We’ll be anxious to observe to followup activity to that huge spike. Ideally, we’ll see NHMD hold support at or above its 200DMA of .0115 on any pullbacks.

Cliffs Natural Resources, Inc. CLF

CLF was included in yesterday’s report after noticing a number of bullish indicators forming on the chart. It’s going to remain on our radar after the stock responded with a subdued but respectable performance on the day, as well as gapping up further in the premarket today.

So far we’ve only seen a 12% rise from this play, but will still be observing closely moving forward as it just cracked the 50DMA in a bullish manner, in addition to recently receiving an analyst upgrade as well as exhibiting significantly heightened volume.

New York & Company, Inc. NWY – Update

We wanted to take a minute this morning to update our readers on a recent bottom-watch call we made, and reiterate our interest in tracking its activity over an extended term.

We called attention to NWY in our premarket report from a week ago today, and while it has yet to really blast off, our timing in pointing out the bottom was about as good as it could have been. It has managed to establish higher lows in each of the four sessions since then, despite only seeing a marginal trading range of 11%

The stock remains heavily oversold, and as such will continue to have a slot of our watchlist moving forward on the chance that a more significant rebound is in the cards.

Extended Watchlist:

BOSC, PSUN, ETAK, TGRO & Extended Watchlist

BOS Better Online Solutions Ltd. BOSC

Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. PSUN

& Elephant Talk Communications, Inc. ETAK

Each of these three stocks traded up on unusually high volume on Friday after appearing in our Extended Watchlist, and wrapped up what was a very successful week of trading.

BOSC tapered back from opening above 9.00, and found its bottom at 7.9001. The stock then proceeded to rebound, bouncing back as high 8.80 for a nice 11% intraday gain on more than 10X the 3mo. average volume.

PSUN increased steadily all day on Friday, running from 2.92 to 3.44, good for a gain of 18% on roughly six times the 3mo. average volume.

ETAK saw a low of 1.01 on Friday, and enjoyed a respectable 17% gain to a high of 1.18, besting its average volume by more than 4X.

Tiger Oil & Energy, Inc. TGRO

We caught TGRO on a scan for plays with unusual activity, and thought we’d mention it this morning. This is a stock that was trading by appointment only for quite some time, that has sprung to life all of the sudden.

This comes shortly after a recent press release citing a proposed partnership with Toto Energy, LLC, wherein the two companies would undertake a joint venture of drilling up to three gas wells, in which TGRO would have a 30% interest. >>>More on the Joint Venture
