Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KMX Options Update & More

CarMax, Inc. KMX – Options Idea

We formulated several targets in the KMX options chain yesterday morning in accordance with the solid earnings beat and premarket gap-up we were observing.   We specified some medium and longer-term contracts with the KMX C$57.50 and $60 Calls, and the 05/19 $60-$65 Calls. We were more than pleased with the activity that ensued.

We’re usually pretty good with our targeting, and these ideas were no exception. Every single one of the contracts we mentioned provided traders with the chance for some very nice single-session gains.

04/21 $57.50 Calls – Range: .45-1.70 – Max Gain: 278%
04/21 $60 Calls – Range:  .17-.75 – Max Gain: 341%

05/19 $60 Calls – Range: .68-1.54 – Max Gain: 126%
05/19 $62.50 Calls – Range: .28-.82- Max Gain: 193%
05/19 $65 Calls – Range: .11-.38 – Max Gain: 245%

With that kind of activity on the very first day, we’re definitely going to want to keep these plays in mind going forward. There may yet be more opportunities still to come.


Akari Therapeutics, Plc. AKTX

We tagged AKTX in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist and saw a very nice intraday performance. It traded in a daily range from a low of 13.69 to a high of 18.46, which represents a 35% spike on the day.

That move came on more than thirteen times the three-month average volume. On the whole, the activity in AKTX was extremely impressive, especially for a stock in its price range. The stock failed to maintain the majority of its daily advance, but we’ll remain interested provided it can register a higher base level of support to close out the week today.



In Ovations Holdings, Inc. INOH

We’re going to begin monitoring this super-subpenny stock after it just reappeared with its first filings in quite some time; two quarterlies and an annual report can be found at the company’s OTC Market filings page (>>View Filings). The filings bring the company current on its financial reporting.

We’ve seen a number of triple-zero stocks make exponential gains in recent weeks, and want to take a flyer on INOH on the outside chance that it could be the next rocket to leave the launchpad!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Several Key Updates

Intercloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

In yesterday’s report kicking off the new trading week, we backtracked to our alert of ICLD coming in our report from two Thursday’s ago, at which time the stock was trading at a low of .0157.

We mentioned how it had risen exponentially since that report, and specifically cautioned our readers to track its movements closely right from yesterday’s opening bell. The strength of the ICLD close on Friday was simply too strong to ignore and despite already having spiked considerably for us up to that point, the stock turned in another fantastic intraday performance.

From an early low of .05, the stock ran all the way to .0869 during the course of a session where it steadily climbed all day long and closed near its high. That marked an intraday boost of 74% and and an overall move up of 340% from our observed low from Thursday the 2nd,

Once again, with the intensely bullish close to another session, we’re going to have our eyes peeled for further moves from ICLD, whether they come in the form of a continued push upward, or are preceded by a dip-and-rip pattern off of these impressive highs.


Ciber, Inc. CBR

Prior to yesterday, CBR had been stuck in a rut for quite some time, but we noticed some abnormal premarket activity and decided to include it in yesterday’s report. It was a good idea, with CBR running from .4329 to .65, which works out to a 50% intraday pop.

The move came in conjunction with the company announcement that it was mulling over an unsolicited offer to be acquired through merger by Ameri Holdings, Inc. (AMRH) which values it at .75/share of CBR stock.

Given that the stock is still trading in the low .60′s at present, we’ll be interested to continue to monitor its progress as the company deliberates the merger offer.


More Key Updates

Cerulean Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CERU - We began tracking CERU just over a month ago, and after an extended period of slow and steady increases, finally yesterday the stock broke out in a more significant manner.

Our initial alert on CERU came on the 3rd of February, at which time the stock was trading at a low of 1.11. Yesterday the stock streaked to an impressive new high of 2.65, which comes out to a total upswing of 139%

______

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AUPH -  AUPH is another stock we’ve been tracking for much of 2017 so far that also broke to new highs yesterday. We witnessed a low of 2.95 in AUPH subsequent to our alert on the stock dated January 27th. Gradual increases over the next month would occur, and since we’ve hit the month of March, the stock has been going haywire.

Yesterday AUPH soared to (and closed at) 10.54 which represents a total move of 257% in less than six weeks!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ICLD, CATB Recaps & More

Intercloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

We caught ICLD coming off of its bottom, and tagged the stock in our report from two Thursday’s ago on the 2nd. Subsequent to that, we would witness a low of .0157 in the stock, and since then it has been one big bullish run that led to an impressive new high on Friday.

We’ve stayed with it each step of the way as it rose from that .0157 low to Friday’s top mark of .0465. That works out to a fantastic move of 196% which occurred over a period of just seven trading sessions.

The sheer amount of activity in the stock on Friday, with more than $6M worth of ICLD shares changing hands, coupled with the strong close has us very interested to track its movements as it leaves the starting gate this morning.

We also prepared a video presentation of the ICLD Chart and its recent movements that you can view by clicking the graphic below:


Catabasis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CATB

Speaking of catching plays coming off of their bottoms, we signaled CATB in Friday’s premarket report, noting the monster gap on its chart to the upside.

We highlighted this one just in the nick of time, as the move it made during Friday’s session ultimately provided for the filling of around three quarters of that gap. CATB ran from a low of 1.58 and went on to hit a high of 2.76, for a very respectable intraday pop of 75%

In terms of what we want to see moving forward, we’ll be looking for CATB to maintain a level of support each day higher than the previous session.

Side Note: These two winners (ICLD, CATB) from Friday’s report also happened to turn in the two top-gaining performances for the entire NASDAQ exchange for Friday’s session!



Aviragen Therapuetics, Inc. AVIR

We also want to issue a quick alert on yet another potential bottom play that appears to be perfectly primed for a rebound. As you can see plainly on the chart snapshot below, there is a sizable gap to fill to the upside, and our favorite indicators are screaming ‘bullish’ at this point.

The chances of seeing a rebound out of AVIR sooner rather than later seem quite good as we kick off another trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Updates, Fresh Ideas

Best Buy Co. Inc. BBY – Options Update

We signaled a range of BBY options yesterday after noticing a hefty earnings beat that was driving the stock to gap up significantly in the premarket.

The bullish trend continued throughout the day, as BBY stock traded in a range from 37.66-39.36. That facilitated some big-time single-session gain opportunities for our specified targets, which were the BBY Weekly 36.50-39 Calls.

It wouldn’t have mattered which set of contracts in the highlighted range were selected, as every single one put up a standout performance, yielding the following potential gains:

$36.50 Calls – Range:  1.43-2.53 – Max Gain: 77%
$37 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.32 – Max Gain: 111%
$37.50 Calls – Range: .77-2.78 – Max Gain: 261%
$38 Calls – Range: .53-1.52 – Max Gain: 187%
$38.50 Calls – Range: .32-2.23 – Max Gain: 597%
$39 Calls – Range: .20-.80 – Max Gain: 300%

For us to remain interested in continuing to track these ideas, we’ll need to see BBY maintain support above the 37.50-mark on any pullbacks.


World Poker Fund Holdings, Inc. WPFH

We also tagged WPFH in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and while it didn’t produce a monster move like the aforementioned options plays, it did manage to make a notable increase on the day.

From a low of .53, the stock traded up to .70, marking an intraday move of 32% We’re going to want to continue to keep an eye on this play as it continues to make headway off of its recent bottom.


Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG

Speaking of stocks where we’ve caught a bottom, we want to comment quickly on the progress of DNRG, a stock which has appeared in our reports on multiple occasions.

Our most recent mention of this play was earlier this month, following which time we observed a low of .0015. Yesterday the stock attained a new high of .0055, representing an increase of 267% in just a few weeks’ time.


Vista Outdoor, Inc. VSTO – Fresh Options Idea

VSTO is an interesting candidate for a forthcoming recovery, and we want to be waiting in the wings for that possibility. Despite a recent earnings miss a few weeks back, coupled with an analyst downgrade, the company’s long-term figures show a slow but steady growth in key areas.

The chart itself is egregiously oversold, with this most recent selloff lasting through the past ten sessions. Whenever we see a stock with solid fundamentals getting abused like this, our bottom-feeding alarms begin to sound.

We’re going to watch this play closely in the weeks ahead, along with a pair of extended-term contracts in its options chain, specifically, the VSTO 10/21 $35 and $40 Calls. A recovery of any significance should produce some interesting activity in those plays.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TEUFF Recap, Options & More

Box Ships, Inc. TEUFF

For the second day in a row yesterday, TEUFF provided us a chance at appreciable intraday gains. On Wednesday, following its inclusion in our premarket report, the stock traded in a solid range from a low of .018 to .0276 for a 53% jump that day.

The momentum continued, spilling over into yesterday dipping slightly in the morning to .0246 before ripping its way up to .035. That worked out to an intraday move of 42%, and an total increase of 94% over our observed low from Wednesday morning.

It marked the fifth consecutive session that TEUFF has posted higher highs and higher lows, and we’ll stay hot on its trail for as long as it continues to do so.


Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. OCUL

We tagged OCUL for observation yesterday as well, and it made a modest but notable move itself, from a low of 5.09 to 5.95; a 17% jump. Perhaps the biggest story with this play is the massive amount of buying that flowed into the stock in a single day. At 7M shares traded, it fell just a tad shy of its all-time single-session volume record (02/15/16, 7.2M).

With that kind of accumulation in effect, we’ll want to leave a slot on our radars open for OCUL in sessions to come.


Viper Energy Partners VNOM

We’re noticing a potential opportunity with VNOM this morning, a stock that is showing some signs of life after what has been a rough couple of weeks. We’re also taking notice of a huge Form-4 buy that came in earlier in the week, to the tune of $31M at an execution price of 15.60.

Yesterday the stock broke the 200DMA in a bullish manner, and it appears to be filling the gap on the chart left by the recent  backslide. We’re going to track this play for the possibility of an extended recovery, and also tag the VNOM 09/16 $15 and 17.50 Calls for observation.
