Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX – Recap

We highlighted this play at the end of last month, and shortly thereafter we would observe a low of .7772. Last week, MBRX reached a new high of 1.47, which translates to a gain of 89% in roughly three weeks’ time.

The move, which filled the entirety of the topside gap on the chart, was due to Thursday’s revelation that the company’s drug Annamycin had received the FDA’s Approval for fast-track designation. At 4:30PM on Wednesday, MBRX officials will conduct a call to discuss this and other developments on a live webcast, which will be available in the Investor Relations section at www.moleculin.com.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: YGYI Update & More

Youngevity International Inc. YGYI

We began tracking YGYI the Thursday before last, on the 4th, and subsequently witnessed a low of 6.00 before the stock began to ascend sharply.

On Friday, despite already having produced significant gain opportunities for us, the YGYI once again made an impressive move, streaking to a new high of 14.40. That works out to an overall move of 140% accompanied by some of the highest volume sessions in the history of the stock.  As YGYI streaks to seven year highs and into the blue sky, we’ll continue to keep tabs on its activity.


Canadian Cannabis Legalization Finally Arrives

We have been proponents of the Canadian cannabis sector for quite a long time, and we have finally reached the moment we’ve been waiting for- the nationwide legalization of recreational marijuana. Originally slated for July, the delays will now finally come to an end, which means the fun is just getting started. Wednesday is the big day.

Here is a list of Canadian cannabis stocks that we’ve tracked in the past to watch in the midst of this very exciting, key moment in Canada’s history, and indeed the history of cannabis itself:

ACBFF, APHQF, ATTBF, CRON, GLDFF, GLNNF, ISOLF, NXTTF, MRRCF, SPRWF, & TWMJF

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL Options & More

Delta Airlines Inc. DAL

Despite a tumultuous day for the markets yesterday, and mostly everything taking on a bearish characteristic, we’re still going to go bullish on DAL in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report released this morning.

Despite rising fuel costs, the company revealed that profits soared well past expectations as a result of increased demand leading to higher ticket prices.

As we always try to do when a company posts a solid beat, we’ll designate a range of options to place on watch, in this case the DAL Weekly $49.50-52 Calls. We’ll go ahead and track these into the end of the week. DAL stock was already oversold, getting hammered for weeks, so this report may be just the catalyst needed to effect an impressive reversal.



SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

We had great success with the SPY earlier this week, and we want to come back to it this morning in the wake of the markets getting crushed yesterday. With the amount of uncertainty and potential volatility out there, we want to set ourselves up to have an active idea no matter which way the winds blow.

Should the SPY fall below $276, we will target the SPY Weekly $277 & $276 Puts. If it pulls above $276 we will focus on the $276 and $277 Calls, so either way, we should be able to quickly identify the proper course once trading commences. .

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Reviews

We had designated the KMX Weekly $77-79 Calls as our contracts of interest and the 77-78′s came alive for some excellent intraday moves.

$77.50 Calls – Range: .11-.60 – Max Gain: 445%
$78 Calls – Range: .05-.40 - Max Gain: 700%

We included an idea for the Adobe options chain on Monday morning, and have also seen some very nice gains there as well this week. This all three of our targets, the ADBE 10/26 $260-265 Calls have produced chances at big-time multibag gains over the past three sessions.

We reported nominal gains on Tuesday morning, but after an extra couple of trading days, we’ve seen those ranges extended by a considerable margin.

$260 Calls– Range: 8.05-14.28 – Max Gain: 77%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMD Review & More

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD

Our first order of business today is going to be to take a look at the incredible year AMD has had. We’ve mentioned it quite a few times along the way, but if we track all the way back to April 26th, we see that we caught this stock at a low of 10.61.

AMD has been an absolute juggernaught all year, and this morning in the premarket trades are going off at 33.25. That’s 213% higher than our observed share price this spring, and AMD shows little sign of slowing its gradual ascent.

In terms of options ideas, we are going to put an observation tag on the AMD Weekly $32-33 Calls.


Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE

Yesterday morning for a fresh options idea,we stated that if we saw ADBE maintain support at or above 258.49, we were going to be very interested in the ADBE 10/26 $260-265 Calls.

The stock began to make the reversal we expected yesterday, and its activity fueled the first round of gains for our calls, which were as follows:

$260 Calls– Range: 8.05-10.50 – Max Gain: 30%
$262.50 Calls – Range: 7.25-8.50 – Max Gain: 17%
$265 Calls – Range: 4.85-7.85 – Max Gain: 62%

We would not be at all surprised to have to swing back around to report much larger gains down the road on these ideas, but yesterday’s activity was a solid start.
