Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Form-4 Alert, AAPL & More

 Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options

We used to trade AAPL options like they were going out of style, but have not actually talked about the stock in roughly six months.

This morning, on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat which featured better-than-expected iPhone sales, we’re going to be coming back to AAPL with a short-term options idea.

Having traded as high as 127.67 in the premarket, we’re going to be looking for a dip-and-rip off of this gap-up once the session commences. We’re going to be focused on the AAPL Weekly $125-127 Calls provided the expected early dip doesn’t take the stock lower than the $125-mark.


Opko Health, Inc. OPK

OPK is a familiar stock to us, albeit one that we haven’t touched upon in awhile. Recently, it has been under heavy consolidation, beginning with a large gap-down from the mid-$11 to the $10 area in late December, and persisting throughout last month.

We’ve also noticed a series of Form-4 filings which show the CEO was soaking up shares at these lows all last week and into Monday, to the tune of more than $300K worth purchased at market prices in just a few days.

We like to follow plays where directors are actively supporting their stock with confidence buys like those, so we’re going to be keeping a closer eye on OPK in sessions to come, as a rebound may be forthcoming at any time.


Tuesday’s Honorable Mentions

Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. CEGX – We placed CEGX in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist and were pleased with the stock’s modest, yet noteworthy intraday performance.

The stock traded in a range from .0026 to .0038, marking an intraday pop of 46% There was a consolidation into the close, and the stock failed to hold at least 50% of its daily advance, however, with the volatility exhibited in the past couple of sessions, we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CEGX as we cruise through mid-week.
_____

Players Network PNTV – We were just mentioning our coverage of PNTV on Monday, and the 400%+ gains we’d observed recently. What has followed is a solid couple of sessions that has the stock well on its way to an impressive intraweek performance.

Monday’s low came in at .028, and yesterday it reached as high as .04, marking a two-day swing of 30% We’ll be looking for the stock to continue posting higher highs and higher lows today, which would solidify PNTV’s multi-day runner status.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NOUV Update & More

 Nouveau Life Pharmaceuticals, Inc. NOUV

As if the two-day, 1102% swing we had already witnessed from NOUV between Thursday and Friday weren’t enough, the stock continued to show volatility with a nice intraday move yesterday following its inclusion in our morning report.

NOUV traded in a range from .0046 up to .008, marking an intraday rip of 74% which came on roughly eight times the 3-month average volume. It also closed having held more than half of its daily advance, which puts us on alert to continue monitoring its activity as we progress through the week.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve just started trading, or if you’ve been doing it for ages, all of our readers are most welcome. Simply send a Skype contact request to username: ‘stocksumo’ and join us!


New Gold, Inc. NGD

We want to place NGD on an extended bottom-watch after the activity which has transpired over the past few sessions. The stock fell off of a cliff, dropping more than a third of its total value in less than a full trading week. The move comes in conjunction with the announcement that production costs per ounce would rise in 2017, as well as the company coming up short on financing for the buildout of its ‘Rainy River’ mine by more than $100M.

While those are certainly noteworthy occurrences, we look at the rapid drop-off in PPS more as an opportunity to get some skin in the game at a discounted price. We’ll be watching NGD closely for a reversal, which admittedly might not happen right away, but could be quite a prime rebound opportunity when it does.

It’s worth mentioning that despite production costs per ounce rising from just under $700 to more than $800 for NGD, even at the higher figure, it still places them well in the profitability range (gold currently trading for, and at a significantly lower cost than many mining outfits.


Wal-mart Stores, Inc. WMT – Options Idea

Speaking of longer-term ideas, we’re looking at WMT this morning after the stock posted a near 9-month low on Friday, followed by a bullish candle to kick the week off yesterday.

It comes on the heels of the news that the retail giant had fired a shot across Amazon’s bow, with the revelation that it would be offering free two-day shipping on over 2 million items via Walmart.com, which cuts Amazon Prime’s main incentive off at the knees.

We’ll be very interested to see how the market responds to such a development over a longer time frame. In correlation, we’re going to be monitoring the activity in the WMT 03/03 $68-69.50 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Move for ORRV & More

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV

On Wednesday, we were mentioning ORRV, and how we’d seen it make a nice move after discussing it in our traders chat the day before. We hinted at the possibility of seeing further gains from this volatile mover, and yesterday provided a truly excellent opportunity to make some fast money, just as we’d hoped.

ORRV traded as low as .0005 in the morning before ripping its way to a daily high of .0022, which marks a single-session run of  340% so congratulations to anyone who noticed our alert and reaped the benefits.

Moving forward we’ll treat this play like any other that has been making solid strides to the upside, looking for it to maintain its uptrend with higher highs and higher lows.



Fresh Options Ideas


NVidia Corp. NVDA
- This has been 2016′s top performer on the S&P 500, and one that we’ve visited in our reports on occasion. Despite already being up over 200% on the year, we like the feel of the reversal that occurred yesterday after it previously had appeared that a downturn was setting up. Instead shares of NVDA pressed upward, and the stock is gapping up considerably in premarket trading today.

We’re going to focus upon the NVDA Weekly $112-115 Calls to try to turn a quick profit today.

_____

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD – We also want to look at one of NVDA’s direct competitors, which has also been building momentum on the chart, in a general uptrend since the middle of October. Here we’re going to want to monitor the activity in the AMD Weekly $11-12 Calls.

CAUTION: Never trade weekly options contracts on a Friday if you aren’t an expert trader. These are high-risk/high-reward style plays that are not for the faint of heart, or the inexperienced!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Big Movers & More

LifeLogger Technologies Corp. LOGG

LOGG ended the week on an extremely high note, which was particularly impressive considering the fact that we had already witnessed a fantastic 91% pop from .0995-.19 subsequent to our mention of it in Thursday’s morning report.

The stock would follow up one great performance with another, running from an early low of .17 to a new high of .30 on Friday morning. It represented an intraday run of 76%, and a two-day overall rise amounting to 202% Our heartiest congratulations to any of our readers who were along for the ride on this one!

We’ll be sure to keep tracking LOGG for as long as its activity continues to provide these excellent intraday chances.


Encompass Compliance Corp. ENCC

ENCC turned out to be our top-gaining prospect of the day on Friday  when all was said and done. After slowly ramping up from its low of .012 over the course of the morning, the stock suddenly took off in the last hour, streaking to a high of .025.

The move amounted to an intraday increase of 108% and ENCC closed at its high point as well, so we’ll definitely want to assume our standard position for instances such as these, monitoring the stock for continued momentum, in addition to dip-and-rip patterns that could lead to further opportunities down the road.


PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. PCSV

On Friday, we classed PCSV as a stock to watch over the longer-term, and while that’s still the case, it also produced immediate results of an impressive nature.

We witnessed the stock trading in a range from .025-.045, which amounted to a respectable 80% intraday move.  As previously stated, we feel the company’s recent entry into the fledgling sport of competitive drone racing warrants extended observation of this stock. (>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Review of Friday’s Half-Session & More

Repros Therapeutics, Inc. RPRX

We’re looking at RPRX as a potential momentum-play this morning. After drastically falling off of a precipice at the end of last month, the stock spent several weeks stepping its way down to a new 52-week low. However, in the few sessions since that time RPRX has been making a nice rebound that warrants our putting this play on watch today.

As you can see on the included chart there are a number of bullish signals in effect. There’s also a good bit of real estate between the current PPS and the next area of resistance on the chart, thanks to the stock’s big decline in October. A return to levels prior to that point would mean gains approaching the 100%-mark from here, so we’ll reserve a space on our watchlist for RPRX.


Pleasant Kids, Inc. PLKD  – Options

Since our first mention of this stock back on October 13th, we’ve witnessed one heck of a run from PLKD, with very few setbacks along the way.

We’ve showed the epic move the stock has made using a trendline on the following chart, running from our observed low of .0581 all the way up to the new high registered on Friday. at .279. That’s a mammoth 380% swing, and with the way things have been going for PLKD of late, it would be a mistake for us to let it slip off of our radars at this point.


The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. BONT

BONT has proved itself to be an immensely successful bottom-call for us over the past week. We re-introduced this past winner on Monday morning, upon which time we would witness the stock trading at a low of 1.25. It proceeded to record four consecutive sessions of higher highs and higher lows throughout last week, just as we’d hoped to see.

BONT’s fantastic recovery carried it to a new high of 2.83 on Friday, which represented an intraweek increase of 126%, congratulations to anyone who made a play on BONT during the short week!


HydroPhi Technologies, Inc. HPTG We’d also like to comment on HPTG, which made an appearance in Friday’s premarket report and ended the short week with a long intraday run from .0027 to .005. It worked out to a 85% spike, and despite being just a half-day, the stock made that move on heavier-than-average volume.
