Beyond Commerce, Inc. BYOC

We like the setup of the current chart on BYOC, so we wanted to include this one as well. Its setup is currently sporting several key indicators that we always look for, and have also pointed out on the chart below.

We’ll put the stock on watch in coming sessions; with a break past the current 50DMA of .10, things could get interesting. We noted the prior resistance around .16, which would represent a nice gain from current levels if the stock were to return there.

________

Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CASI, BYOC, HMNY Recaps

Beyond Commerce, Inc. BYOC

It was the morning of September 25th that we tagged BYOC for observation and it has essentially undergone a continual uptrend over that time period.

That morning we witnessed a low of .0035 in the stock and as of yesterday’s new high reached just prior to the close, was .0189. That amounts to a very impressive boost of 440% over a time span of just 13 trading days.


CASI Pharceuticals, Inc. CASI

We placed CASI on watch in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and wanted to come back this morning to talk about its performance. The stock ran extremely hard out of the starting gate and attainted its high within the first half hour of trading.

Despite failing to maintain its gains into the close, the run it made was impressive nonetheless. CASI’s low came in at 2.82 and it reached as high as 4.84, for an intraday pop of 92%


Helios & Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We also want to take a final look at the overall move HMNY has made for us. It appears as if its epic run is over but it brought with it one of the biggest, fastest moves we’ve ever seen in a stock in its price range.

From our observed low of 5.47 subsequent to our alert on the stock on September 20th, to yesterday’s mind-bending high of 38.86, represents a rise of 610% Congratulations to anyone who was able to take this one for a ride.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KMX Recap & More

CarMax, Inc. KMX 

First up this morning, we’re going to start off the fresh trading week by reviewing the performance of the CarMax options we signaled in Friday’s premarket report on the heels of the company’s Q2 earnings beat.

We’re constantly pounding the table on post-earning options trading, simply because we are so very often successful in our selections. Volatility is a swing trader’s best friend, and few things create it more quickly and effectively than a solid beat on earnings.

So we signaled our interest in tracking the KMX Weekly $69.50-71.50 Calls and it worked like a charm:

$69.50 Calls - Range: 1.21-4.96 – Max Gain: 310%
$70 Calls – Range: 1.10-4.40 – Max Gain: 300%
$70.50 Calls – Range: .55-3.78 – Max Gain: 587%
$71 Calls – Range: .35-3.50 – Max Gain: 900%
$71.50 Calls – Range: .30-2.41 – Max Gain: 703%



Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We just updated our readers on our coverage of HMNY last Wednesday, when we pointed out that we slated the stock for tracking on August 15th and observed a subsequent low of 2.42. By midweek the stock had already made a considerable move up, but Friday’s session brought another big pop to new highs.

HMNY traded in a daily range from 5.67 to 7.95 gaining 40%, a very respectable intraday move in and of itself. The new high marked an overall move of 229% from our observed low.

Volume was much higher than average all last week, and the stock maintain roughly half of its daily advance into a fairly strong close, so we’ll need to keep monitoring HMNY for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.
