Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

FutureLand Corp. FUTL

After already showing us a multi-bag swing from our initial alert on Friday to new highs on Monday, FUTL put up another solid performance yesterday. The stock traded in an intraday range from .0024 in the morning, and edged it way up all day to hit a new high of .0037 shortly before 2PM. That works out to a 54% push on the day, accompanied by roughly six times the monthly average volume.  .

From our observed low of .0012 on Friday, the stock has now managed a three-session swing amounting to 308% and will hold our interest as long as it continues to register higher base levels of support.


Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Recap

We figured to take advantage for the hype surrounding Apple for its big iPhone 8/X event, and there was enough price action and volatility throughout the day so as to present two separate opportunities for intraday swing trades.

We were looking at the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls, each of which exhibited the same pattern of an early run, followed by a dip-and-rip for a secondary move in the afternoon.

The $160′s first ran from 2.44-4.58 (+88%), and then from 1.07-1.98 (+85%), while the $162.50′s traded from 1.29-2.77 (+115%) initially, followed by a later move from .45-.80 (+78%). All in all, some nice activity for our first AAPL calls in quite some time.


 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

Drawing us to CBRL this morning is a solid setup on the chart with the stock having recently reversed off of a bottom, in conjuction with a premarket earnings beat.  This is just the sort of scenario we’re always scanning for, and in this instance, we’re going to formulate both a shorter and longer-term options idea.

We’re going to place the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch in the days and week ahead.


Honorable Mentions:

Forterra, Inc. FRTA – After tagging FRTA in Friday’s premarket report, we’ve seen a pretty nice uptrend from the stock. It’s traded up from 3.66 to 5.25, a move of 43% We’ll want to continue to monitor its activity as we head through midweek.

Quotient Ltd. QTNT - We had QTNT in yesterday’s watchlist, and want to continue to track it after it made a similar move.  Also from a low of 3.66, QTNT saw a subsequent high of 5.14, which comes out to an intraday pop of 40%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AEZS Recap & More

Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

It had been quite some time since the last time we mentioned AEZS in one of our reports, but were prompted to do so yesterday, after noticing some unusual premarket activity on our routine morning scan.

It’s certainly a good thing that we did, because the stock became our number one play of the day with an outstanding performance. It also happened to be the NASDAQ’s top gainer of the day. From an early low of 1.48 the stock shot up to a high of 2.80 shortly after 1:30, marking a single-session rip of 89%

The big move came on volume exceeding the monthly average by roughly 40 times, and the stock managed to hold well over half of its gains into the close, so we’ll be sure to leave AEZS on our radar as we head into the end of the week.


Marijuana Company of America, Inc. MCOA

Another point of focus for us yesterday was MCOA, which we signaled the previous morning, and subsequently witnessed a 38% (.02685-.037) upswing. We were mentioning that, along with the fact that an interesting PR had hit newswires which we felt could set the table for further gains, and we were correct in our assumption.

Perhaps also riding the wave of invigoration that has flowed back into the cannabis space as a whole over the past few sessions, MCOA continued its ascent, trading in a range from .0361-.0467 on the day. That was good for an intraday move of 29% and extended our two-session observed range on the stock to a respectable 74%



Sears Holdings Corp. SHLD – Options Idea

We’ve had some good fortune in the past with SHLD, and more specifically, its options chain. This morning, we’re spotting another possible opportunity on that front. The company will now be selling Kenmore appliances via Amazon.com, and as a result, the stock is gapping up over ten percent in premarket trading this morning.

To take advantage of the commotion, we’ll have our eye on the SHLD Weekly $9-10 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MYO, HOS Reviews & More

Myomo, Inc. MYO

In terms of intraday gainers, MYO stole the show on Friday after appearing in our premarket report. Considering the fact that it was a ten dollar stock to begin with, the single-session rip we got from this play was fantastic.

From a low of 10.10 in the morning, MYO cruised its way to a high of 18.20 on over three times the monthly average volume. That worked out to an 80% move, and the stock closed with strength.

We’re going to be looking to MYO again as we kick off a new trading week today, as the stock has already bested Friday’s highs in premarket trading this morning. There may be a dip-and-rip formation, or a straight continuation of momentum, but either way we’ll want to see higher highs and higher lows established in order to confirm MYO as a multi-day runner and remain interested.


Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc. HOS

Coming in as an honorable mention, also from Friday’s report, was HOS. The stock traded up from 2.26 and ran as high as 2.93. That logs as a intraday rise of 30%, and it traded six times its 30-day average volume.

Like the above-mentioned play, HOS had a pretty solid close, and is showing signs of potentially sustaining the trend it established leading into the end of last week.


Smart & Final Stores, Inc. SFS

Many grocery stocks took a hit at the end of last week amid the huge Amazon-Whole Foods deal, and there could definitely be rebound opportunities forthcoming as a result.

One such stock that caught our eye is SFS, which was hammered down to new 52-week lows on Friday. Purely from a technical standpoint we’d be interested in this for potential bottom plays in the stock and the options chain as well. We’ll signal the SFS 08/18 $10 Calls for observation over an extended term.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh News Plays & More

FreeSeas, Inc. FREE

We mentioned FREE in yesterday’s morning report as a bottom-play that was gaining momentum. The stock had begun to show signs of life after recently establishing a new 52-week low, and our focus paid off almost instantly.

We witnessed a slight dip to a low of .1113 shortly before 10AM, after which time FREE proceeded to surge its way to a daily high of .179. It registered as a 61% intraday swing before the stock tapered back to close at .091.

We’ll continue to observe the activity on the FREE chart as the week progresses, as there is a fair chance that we will continue to see sizable swings in PPS.


Axion Power International, Inc. AXPW

Speaking of major runners, the call we made on AXPW on Monday continued to extend its gains early in yesterday’s session. We caught this gem at a low of .0421, and watched as it went on to touch .36 before it began its pullback.

The move extended the total range we witnessed over just a two-session span to a whopping 755%

For us to remain interested in AXPW for further opportunities, we’ll need to see it maintain support at or above yesterday’s swing low of .14. Key resistance is sitting between .18-19.


Fresh News Plays

Synergy Pharmaceutical, Inc. SGYP
came with some positive news this morning, and is gapping up heavily in the premarket. We’ll look for a potential dip-and-rip scenario to occur following the opening bell.

_______

Blue Shere Corp. BLSP announced a tentative share buyback program this morning that would allow for the company to acquire up to $500K-worth of its common stock from the open market and/or via privately arranged transactions. Couple that with a chart that has the look of a classic bottom-play, and we’re very interested to include BLSP on our watchlist this midweek.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSLA Sustains Uptrend & More

Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – Options

TSLA registered its fourth consecutive session of higher highs and higher lows yesterday. In our morning report, we had just finished congratulating those of our readers who took advantage of the options trading ideas we ventured (05/22 $230-240 Calls). Returns ranging from 78-140% were made possible between Friday and Monday, and yesterday’s performance extended those opportunities even further. We could see a continuance of that pattern into today as well.

News coming down the TSLA presswire has likely contributed to the strength of this run, with the State of Maryland giving the company the green light for four direct-sales outlets in the state, a major victory for the burgeoning automaker. >>LEARN MORE

With all that having been said, with TSLA’s PPS settling in the high $244-range upon yesterday’s close and breaching the $248 mark in this morning’s premarket trading, we’re going to want to roll our range of monitored contracts up for action that’s closer to the money.

Should TSLA continue its bullish patterns, we’ll be scanning 05/22 $240-250 Calls for quick-strike chances just like the ones we’ve already witnessed.


Gevo, Inc. GEVO

On Thursday of last week, we caught GEVO as it made a great run from a low of 3.28 that day to 7.26 the following day; allowing us to close out the week with a premium chance at up to 122% in profits.

Following that impressive move we mentioned that we wanted to see the stock hold at the 200DMA of 4.90 upon pulling back, and while the stock wasn’t quite able to do so, support ultimately came Monday at a low of 4.43.

We want to eye GEVO once again this midweek as premarket activity is carrying the stock past mid-$5 range.
