Blue Horseshoe Stocks: UNXL Recap & More


Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL

Our premarket report yesterday morning may have left some of our newer readers wondering why we would put forth a stock that had just been crushed to new all-time lows amid forthcoming bankruptcy and the layoff of its entire workforce. Our more seasoned readers will recall many times in the past where just such a set of circumstances has allowed for big opportunities, and yesterday was no exception.

UNXL began its rebound immediately following the opening bell, and in the first 90 minutes of trading, shot up from a low of .07 to as much as .16. That worked out to an intraday rip of 128% which occurred on massive volume on the order of nearly forty times the monthly average.

It just goes to show why we are constantly scanning for stocks coming off of their 52-week lows, because quite often they become fantastic rebound plays just like UNXL did yesterday. In fact, it ended up being the NASDAQ’s biggest gainer of the day, so cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!


Coty, Inc. COTY

We like the setup of the current COTY chart and would like to signal a pair of options contracts for observation in the days and weeks ahead.

Here we have another stock that was battered down in rapid fashion, having been trading over $20/share as recently as the beginning of this month. That includes a large gap left on the chart. It reached it ultimate low on Thursday, and since then has shown signs of a possible extended recovery, not to mention some insider buying.

On that note, we’re going to be looking to the COTY 10/06 $17 & $17.50 Calls  for potential swing trades in the days and weeks to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IDXG Keeps Rolling & More

Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. IDXG

Yesterday morning, we were mentioning our call of IDXG from last Thursday, and subsequent run from a low of .72 to more than a dollar. It had reached a new high at 1.28 in the premarket and we said we wanted to see it register higher highs and higher lows en route to a more sustained rebound.

So far we’ve gotten just what we were looking for from IDXG, with the stock posting an intraday run of 24% from 1.17-1.54 for yesterday’s session. It pushed the overall move we’ve observed in under a week’s worth of trading into double-bag territory, having risen 114% thus far.

It was helped along by yesterday’s announcement that a large healthcare provider would be covering the company’s thyroid cancer screening tests, which is now covered for up to 250 million Americans. We’ll continue to keep a spot on our radars for IDXG, which was trading over the $2-mark as recently as May.


Alibaba Group Holding Ltd - Options Idea

Shares of BABA are streaking to new highs this morning as the company posted a solid beat on profits and revenue in its premarket earnings report.

The last time we visited an idea in the BABA chain was back on June 8th, when we signaled $140-145 Calls and saw them register single-session gains ranging from 1167-3160% so we are definitely familiar with what can happen in an ideal situation.

Today, given the fact of another similar scenario where earnings lead to a large gap up into blue skies, we’re going to be tracking contracts in the range of the BABA Weekly $162.50-170 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBY Options, XTRN Recap & More

Las Vegas Railway Express XTRN - Update

As we were just mentioning yesterday, a member of our daily live trader’s chat* allowed participants to snag gains of up to 300% on Tuesday as XTRN ran from .0003-.0012.

We also noted the immense volume flowing through the stock, along with a bullish close and suggested that a continuation of momentum was possible. Sure enough XTRN followed up one strong session with another, trading in an intraday range from a low of .001 and reaching as high as .0027, which works out to an intraday run of 260%

That is certainly a premium single-session gain opportunity that was available to all of our subscribers, but chatroom members* could have had a shot at the full two-day swing, which comes out to an incredible 800%

XTRN received an offer to be bought out and merge with XREE, another ‘X-Train’ company that runs scenic train tours, so we’ll be interested to see how that situation plays out.

Best Buy Co. Inc. BBY – Options Idea

Post-earnings options ideas for high-profile companies have produced some of the biggest gains that we come across, so we want to formulate one for BBY today. A unexpectedly strong Q1 release has catapulted the stock here in the premarket where it has touched eleven-year highs.

We are going to be very interested to track BBY Weekly $55-58 Calls for potential swing trades, especially if the stock behaves predictably and executes an early dip-and-rip.

Bonus Idea – Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF

ANF posted a mixed earnings release, beating on sales but taking a heavy loss for Q1. Still, the markets as a whole seem bullish, and ANF is gapping up moderately in the premarket. We’ll be looking at the ANF Weekly $13 & $13.50 Calls.


Bitcoin Watchlist

With Bitcoin soaring to its all-time highs, it’s taking a lot of the related stocks along for the ride. In light of this, we want to hash together a bitcoin watchlist to keep an eye on amid this historic trend:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Yesterday’s Major Movers & More

It was a great start to the 2017 trading year yesterday, with multiple movers offering up opportunities for solid single-session gains. In addition to a handful of the stocks we were watching streaking their way upward, our options idea also fared well, with the markets in general kicking off the year on a strong note.

Mountain High Acquisitions Corp. MYHI – First up is MYHI, which exhibited a big breakout from a low of  .09 and running as high as .1745. That was good for the largest intraday gain, coming in at 94% and occurring on considerable volume.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation with MYHI, and possibly be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip pattern. Should the stock briefly come down off of these highs, there could be another opportunity to time the subsequent bounce. 
_____

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV – ORRV has continuously pushed the envelope since we first began talking about it a week ago today and yesterday was no exception. We observed yet another big run, with the stock jumping from .0019 to a new high of .0036. That goes down as an intraday pop of 89%, and extends our observed range on this play inside a week by a considerable margin.

As of the .0005 we witnessed last week, yesterday’s top mark represented a total upswing of 620%

*Side Note: Anyone who participates in our daily traders chats could have gotten in even lower the previous day, at .0003, from which point yesterday’s new high marked a move of 1100%  *Send a Skype contact request to “stocksumo” to participate in our in-session traders chats!

Hiru Corp HIRU – Another excellent play was HIRU, which started the day off at a low of .0008 and persisted with a steady climb throughout the session to wind up closing at its high of day, at .0013.

That was a daily increase of  63% and of course, anytime we see a stock end the session at its high, we always want to be on the lookout for continued momentum.


ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY

Suspecting that the bullish premarket sentiment would spill over into yesterday’s trading session, we signaled some options in the SVXY chain, namely the SVXY Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.

While we didn’t sweep the range in terms of hefty gains, there was considerable open interest in two sets which allowed for significant profits- the $94 and $95 Calls. The $94′s ran from  2.30-3.64 (+58%), and the $95′s traded up from 1.75 as high as 3.39 (+94%)

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF – Fresh Options Idea

We want to signal a range of options ideas for ANF, which is just coming off of its annual lows, and showing some signs of a reversal.

We’ll want to be ready to take advantage of a recovery, by using the ANF 02/17 $12-15 Calls, which gives us several weeks for a rebound to materialize. That being said, the gain opportunities could come sooner rather than later, so we want to be mindful of that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off the Short Week

Options Ideas

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) -  It’s been awhile since we dabbed in some SPY options and the fund is gapping up moderately in the premarket, so as we kick off this holiday-shortened 3.5 day week, we thought we’d float an idea for some calls across everyone’s desk this morning. We’re going to focus on the SPY 11/23 $218.50-220 Calls. for possible daytrades and/or swing trades over the next few sessions.

Given the Thanksgiving break on Thursday followed by just a half day for Black Friday, these contracts, which would normally be weeklies expiring on Friday, will instead expire Wednesday afternoon, so we’ll be monitoring them up to that point.

We’ll hold to this idea as long as the SPY doesn’t dip below that 218.50-mark on any pullbacks.
______

Tyson Foods, Inc. TSN – Next up on the menu of options ideas today is Tyson, which we’re going to go in the opposite direction with, signaling some puts to track on the heels of an earnings miss.

We’re going to zero in on the TSN Weekly $62-59 Puts in the event that TSN records a continued backslide. Unlike the previously mentioned idea, these do expire at the end of Friday’s session (1PM) so we’ll have the entire week to watch these contracts.

______

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – An old-time favorite from the past is making another appearance this morning, in PBR. We noticed the stock coming back down recently after a surge well past the $10 mark last month, and this morning, it is re-testing the $10-level with a solid premarket gap-up.

We’re going te set ourselves up tracking the PBR $9.50-10.50 Calls (also expiring Friday @1PM), which could be in line for some serious moves if the stock can maintain its present momentum through the session and perhaps over the course of this short week.


Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG

This is a play that we’ve mentioned on occasion in the past, most recently two Friday’s ago, when we tagged it at .0014 and saw a decent 44% run to .0023 the following day.

Since then the stock has consolidated back down to that .0014 level, and we’re noticing a PR out this morning that could help DNRG on its next leg-up. (>>View PR)
