Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Stock Updates

Catalyst Pharma Inc. CPRX

We saw a very impressive new high for a stock that we’ve been tracking off of a bottom since February 8th. CPRX traded for as little as 2.36 that day, and has never looked back, spending most of the 7 weeks since then in a general uptrend that really kicked into high gear yesterday.

The stock ultimately reached 5.25 before closing just a penny below that point. That works out to an upswing of 122% in well under two months’ time.


Axsome Therapuetics, Inc. AXSM 

Speaking of stock runners, we called out AXSM for observation just last Thursday, and wanted to drop back in on it to comment regarding its performance thus far. From a low of 11.75 on Thursday morning, the stock has now reached as high as 16.38. That’s a relatively modest but still very respectable gain of 39% in a span of just three sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: REV Form-4 Alert

General Mills, Inc. GIS

Tracking back to an idea we formulated on Wednesday morning, the GIS 04/18 $47.50-50 Calls, we saw some really nice activity in those contracts thanks to a bullish session for the markets on the whole.

Both of our designated targets managed to post multi-bag gains. The $47.50 Calls made a nice swing from 1.40-2.85, representing a gain of 104% The $50′s fared even better, trading in a range from .27-.94, an increase of 248%


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI

For a fresh idea yesterday, we went with the DRI 04/18 $115 Calls and saw a solid performance there as well. This set of contracts turned up with an even double-bagger as they ran from a low of 1.15, and reached a 3.30 high.

As is the case with many of the plays we selected this week, there’s still plenty of time remaining until expiration, so the possibility of seeing further useful activity down the line is not out of the question.


Revlon, Inc. REV – Form-4 Alert

Speaking of plenty of time, we are going to go farther out with this next fresh idea than we are typically accustomed to going. This idea could theoretically be in play for the next 5 months. We’ll track the REV 08/16 $22.50-25 Calls.

This is after noticing the stock recovering from a recent severe beating, in unison with Form-4 filings indicating the purchase of over $7M in stock by a REV insider on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, as the stock was flagging heavily.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Epic BPTH Run

Bio-Path Holdings, Inc. BPTH

We’ve been talking about BPTH all week, after the stock we tagged as a bottom watch play in our morning report on January 23rd had come up from our observed low of 2.65 to nearly the $15-mark. It was an incredible gain indeed, but nothing could have prepared us for what was to come.

Yesterday, following the company’s clinical update on its Phase 2 acute myeloid leukemia drug, prexigebersen, we saw an explosion on the chart that can only be described as the rarest of the rare. BPTH shot up from a daily low of 17.01 to an astounding high of 73.52! That worked out to an intraday swing of 332% As measured from the low following our January alert on the stock, BPTH posted an increase of  2,674% in a matter of just five weeks.

The stock pulled back to the high $30′s following that epic run, so it would appear that the above-mentioned figure will be the final maximum gain on our idea. While this has a chance to go down as our best stock call of the year, the chances that we score bigger gains on options ideas are extremely high. So we encourage any non-subscribers reading this to sign up as soon as possible!


Fresh Options Ideas

Speaking of options, which have also brought us several multi-bag gain opportunities this week, we’ll go ahead and close out this incredibly successful week with a pair of ideas that seem to be good bets here in the premarket. Horrid payroll numbers are contributing to what appears to be an impending bearish day for the markets.

SPY Weekly $274.50-273 Puts*
BIG 03/15 $35-37.50 Calls

*Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with access to disposable funds.
