Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EKSO New Highs & More

Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. EKSO

What started as a nominal gainer that came off of our extended watchlist on Wednesday, EKSO rolled its 37% performance over into yesterday’s session, carrying on the multiday action. After a  strong close at 1.81 on Thursday, we said we’d be interested in continuing to track EKSO as we head into week’s end, and it was a great idea.

The stock continued its ascent to a new high  and reached 2.18. From Wednesday’s low of 1.40, it works out to a respectable two day swing of 56% Just as we mentioned yesterday, the stock closed strong again, and we’ll want to keep monitoring for higher highs and higher lows .


Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea

Valeant has been working its way down to an area of relative support recently, consolidating after a nice run off of its 52-week lows from April to May. This morning in the premarket, we’ve taken notice of the fact that VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.

We want to be waiting in the wings with an options idea to take advantage of the action following what could very well be an early dip-and-rip formation. We’ve called VRX and a ton of other such stocks in these positions, and done very well in the past.

We’ll be looking to the VRX Weekly $12 and 12.50 Calls* for possible swing trades today.

*We never include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers that trading weekly options at the end of the week is a hugely risky proposition that should not be attempted unless you are an expert trader! 


Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE

We want to point out a possible momentum play in AMPE. We’ve talked about this stock in the past, and as you can see from the included chart snapshot, it has been mounting a decent rebound effort off of a double bottom over the past few sessions.

We’re going to place AMPE on watch into next week, as a similar move to the one exhibited by the stock earlier this spring would mean considerable gains from this point.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NIHD Review & More

NII Holdings, Inc. NIHD

We initially tagged NIHD in our premarket report from last Thursday, and on that day we would observe a low of .5472 in the stock. It’s been stepping its way up, but this morning in premarket trading things have really kicked into high gear, with NIHD cracking through the dollar barrier.

As of this morning’s premarket high of 1.14, we’ve now witnessed an increase of 108% in NIHD over a span of just three trading sessions. In order for us to remain highly interested in this play, we’ll want to see it maintain support at or above its current 50DMA of .83 on any pullbacks that may occur.


Celsion Corp. CLSN

We called out CLSN in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and saw a modest yet respectable move out of that play as well. From a low of 3.85 the stock ran as high as 4.96, marking an intraday move of 29%

The stock was number four on the NASDAQ’s top gainer list for the day, and while it did end up tapering back to close near its daily lows, this morning it is gapping up again in the premarket. This surge of activity is primarily due to yesterday’s announcement of positive results in its ovarian cancer treatment trials.

We’ll definitely be keeping CLSN on our radars and watching for the continued establishment of higher lows off of our recently observed bottom.


Bitcoin Services, Inc. BTSC

BTSC was a part of the bitcoin watchlist we issued on May 25th in the midst of a bitcoin frenzy where the crypto-currency was soaring to new all-time highs.

The residual effect for plays like BTSC has been impressive, with with stocks PPS making a jump from our observed low of  .0366 up to a new high of .164 yesterday, which represents a 348% rip which occurred over a period of just seven sessions.


Egalet Corp. EGLT

Not only is EGLT coming off of a bottom on the chart, but in the space of the past 36 hours, the company has made two major announcements.

Yesterday, it was made known that EGLT had “received a U.S. patent for its proprietary Guardian™ Technology tablet architecture used to create precise delivery of combination products with immediate-, delayed- and/or extended-release properties.” (>>View PR)

Today, the announcement was that “one of the largest payers in the United States will provide coverage of ARYMO® ER (morphine sulfate) extended-release tablets” (>>View PR)

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FL, CNXS Recaps & More

Franchise Holding International, Inc. FNHI

On Friday morning, we were giving our readers an update on the stellar performance of FNHI since we’d first called it back on the 8th. subsequent to which time, the stock was trading at a low of .0061.

Not only did FNHI follow it up with a solid intraday pop, but also extended our total observed range in just over three weeks by a significant margin.

Connexus Corp. CNXS

Speaking of big movers, our tag of CNXS in Friday’s report came just in the nick of time for us to catch a fantastic intraday performance.

The stock traded up from a low of .0051, cracked through the penny barrier, and reached as high as .0159, for a whopping run of 212% on the day!

That performance marked the third straight session of higher highs and higher lows, so we’re definitely going to be on the lookout for a possible continuation of that trend. Ideally, we’d like to see CNXS hold support at or above Thursday’s swing high of .0092 on any pullbacks.


Foot Locker, Inc. FL - Options Update

We also need to bring readers up to speed on the excellent  post-earnings options idea we formulated on Friday for Foot Locker, the FL 03/17 $70-75 Calls.

$70 Calls – Range: 2.00-5.00 – Max Gain: 150%
$72.50 Calls – Range: .95-3.60 – Max Gain: 279%

Special Note on Bitcoin

Prior to last week, the all time high for Bitcoin was $1160, last week that high was broken, and has been making higher highs since.

Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust ETF (Pending:COIN) is subject to approval. Essentially, if the SEC raises no issues by the end of the comment period, the ETF can move forward unhindered. It has caused an increased interest in the space, and as a result, we’ve got our eyes on stocks like the above-mentioned CNXS, along with others like BTSC and GAHC

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FNHI, Bottom-Plays & More

Franchise Holding International, Inc. FNHI

It’s about time that we came back to rehash one of our top performing stocks of the month in FNHI this morning. We’ve been continuously monitoring this play all February, since our initial alert which came on the 8th, subsequent to which we would observe a low of .0061 in the stock. We continued to follow up on this play, including reminders in last Friday’s report, and on Tuesday as well.

It’s been quite a ride since then, as FNHI has gone on to barrel into Pennyland, and eventually break both the two and three cent marks.

Yesterday the stock reached an impressive new high of .0357, which represents an overall upswing of 485% in just a shade over two weeks! Big congratulations go out to anyone who got involved and reaped some serious rewards off of this fantastic subpenny-to-penny mover!


Northern Dynasty Minerals, Ltd. NAK

We spotted a potential recovery play in NAK, which has gotten beaten up in recent sessions, but is exhibiting the traits of a stock that could be headed back up in sessions to come.

Whenever we see a bottom-bouncing stock which has established support at a previous resistance level, especially one this oversold, we’re always on the lookout for the possibility of a rebound. We’re going to keep NAK on our radars indefinitely, as we feel that a significant push back to the upside could be just a matter of time.


Fresh Options Idea

Foot Locker, Inc. FL – For a quick options trading idea this morning, we’re going to signal a range of longer-term contracts in the Foot Locker chain. Our targets, the FL 03/17 $70-75 Calls will have plenty of time to see the type of activity we’re looking for, with exactly three weeks until expiration.



Cemtrex, Inc. CETX – Quick Reminder

We tagged CETX as a bottom play in yesterday’s report, and we just wanted to update readers on its healthy performance. The stock traded up from a daily low of 3.51 to 4.43, a gain of 26% which is a good start to the recovery we were hoping to see.

We’ll continue to have our eyes on this one, as a return to 5, 6, or perhaps even 7 dollars is not out of the realm of possibility in weeks to come.
