Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom-Plays & More

Twitter, Inc. TWTR – Options Idea

We have yet to talk about TWTR in 2017, namely because the stock has been in an overall downtrend over nearly that whole span. However, in recent weeks, it found a bottom and slowly has begun stair-stepping its way to a recovery. That process is getting a kick in the pants this morning with a significant morning gap up on the heels of Twitter’s earnings. The company posted losses, though not as big as expected, while also reporting an increase in users.

We’re going to see about possibly using the commotion to our advantage with a range of options ideas. Provided TWTR can maintain support at or above its 50DMA (15.19) on any pullbacks, we’re going to be interested in tracking the activity in the TWTR Weekly $15-16 Calls, on which we’ll be looking for a classic dip-and-rip pattern. If properly timed, it could spell some big gains in those contracts.


Apricus Biosciences, Inc. APRI

We want to put APRI on our radars today as a potential bottom-bouncer. At the beginning of the year, from a level comparable to current prices, the stock ran into the mid-$3 range. Now, after a long period of getting beat back nearly to its annual low, it is showing signs of a rebound that we’d like to monitor on the chance that it turns into a full-scale reversal.

You can see just what we mean on the snapshot below. The RSI is indicating that APRI is about to enter extreme oversold territory, while the MACD is just beginning to curl upward and show some convergence. We wouldn’t be surprised to a see cross in the days ahead.

Even just a run back to the 200DMA from here would be a move of almost 100% so we’ll definitely want to keep an eye peeled.

.


NoHo, Inc. DRNK

We’ve been saying how hot the super-subpenny market has been recently, and the trend has been persisting now for quite some time.  We initially slated DRNK for observation in Monday’s premarket report, after which we saw a soild 70% pop from a low of .0003. We stated as much in yesterday’s report, mentioning that we’d certainly want to continue to pay attention, based on a number of factors.

The stock did manage to record a new high for us for the second straight day, making an intraday move of 50% from .0004-.0006, and extending our two-session observed range to a nice, round 100%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review & More

Options Review – Yesterday’s Big Winners
___
For some of our readers that may not have previously understood why we like to mix options-trading ideas in with our equities ideas, yesterday’s session served as an excellent example. All three of the stocks whose options chains we were tracking provided folks with substantial opportunities for lucrative daytrades. Here’s a breakdown:
___

Ford Motor Co. (F) - On the heels of the revelation that Ford had set revenue records and beat earning expectations for Q2, we saw the chance to leverage the resultant action on the chart to our great advantage. The range of contracts that we flagged for observation was the F Weekly $14.50 and $15 Calls. As the $15′s fell just shy of being pushed into the money, the main thrust of the action was in the $14.50′s. Those contracts went big, with a surge from a low of .18 all the way up to .42; an intraday spike of 133% We’ll be on the lookout for potential dip-and-rip scenarios in Ford to create the possibility of further opportunities as the week wears on.
___

Pfizer, Inc. PFE – it was also a beat on earnings that propelled our PFE ideas to substantial intraday gains. Our specific area of interest were the PFE Weekly $34.50 and $35 Calls. The $34.50′s made an impressive move from .26-.88 for total possible gains of 238% and the $35′s really performed with a monster 410% run from .10-.51!

___

Baidu, Inc. BIDU – In a departure from our standard options M.O., we identified a chance to play some Puts as BIDU was taking an absolute shellacking after its own earnings missed the mark. The downfall continued throughout the session, and fueled the success of our observed contracts, which were the BIDU Weekly Puts in the $180-175 Range. The trading ranges and maximum gains on all three sets of contracts were as follows:

$180 Calls - Daily Range: 8.00-18.05 – Max Gain: 126%
$177.50 Calls - Daily Range: 5.20- 14.90 – Max Gain: 187%
$175 Calls - Daily Range: 3.88-13.10 – Max Gain: 238%

___

MORE IDEAS

Cheers to any of our readers who were able to parlay those ideas into some solid intraday profits. We’ve got some fresh ideas to monitor during today’s session as well:

Twitter, Inc. TWTR Weekly $34-32 Puts

Micron Technologies, Inc. MU Weekly $19-20.50 Calls


Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We also want to make a quick note of the PZOO news that hit wires right at market open yesterday. The storyline we’ve been continuously following with Pazoo regarding the company’s foray into the medical marijuana testing business received a significant update.

Pazoo subsidiary, Harris Lee, LLC has signed an agreement that will facilitate the takeover of an operational testing facility in Colorado, be sure to check out the PR below:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Revisiting CETV & More

Central European Media Enterprises, Inc. CETV
-
CETV is a stock we’ve looked in upon a few times over the past year or so, first catching it all the way back in May of 2013. We like to keep a continuous eye on all of our past winners in the event that they might bring future opportunities, and that’s why we’re going to revisit CETV this morning.

The stock is coming off of recent lows, and is showing some signs of life on the heels of improved earnings released today, presently gapping up past the 50DMA, up 10% in the pre-market, and trading in the high 2.70′s. We’re going to want to watch closely as the stock reacts to some favorable numbers:

HAMILTON, BERMUDA, July 30, 2014 – Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (“CME” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ/Prague Stock Exchange – CETV) today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 .

In Ovations Holdings, Inc. INOH

INOH popped up on our scanners this morning as a sub-penny play with bottom-bounce potential. The stock is coming off of a recent sub-.001 bottom, and began to rebound during yesterday’s session.

INOH had a rapid spike to more than .008 back in June, so we know the potential for a move is there, and will keep a close watch over INOH in coming sessions.


Side Notes:

PGT, Inc. PGTI

Speaking of bottom bouncers, we just wanted to make a quick mention of yesterday’s extended watchlist play, PGTI. The stock gapped up and reversed course, trading in a daily range from 8.76 – 9.77, an intraday move of 11.5%. We’ll be looking in on PGTI today to see if it can maintain course.

NQ Mobile, Inc. NQ

NQ has made repeat appearances in our reports, most recently July 21st, and since that time, has been trending off of its own bottom. Even after several sessions of positive trading, we want to pay special attention to NQ following word of a possible buyout:

NQ Announces Receipt of Non-Binding Proposal to Acquire All Outstanding Shares of NQ (Wed 8:38AM EDT)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AVOP, CETV, PBR Options

AV1 Group, Inc. AVOP

We’ve been tracking AVOP for a few weeks now, having already seen some pretty impressive moves from the stock. Our initial alerts lead to gains in excess of 200%, and we saw another spike yesterday which led to AVOP coming down to .0012 from a high of .0027.

The stock closed out the day at .0016, and it seems to be searching for a bottom, so we’ll be monitoring for that eventuality. As volatile as trading in AVOP is, a properly timed bottom play could yield significant gains.

In order to remain interested in AVOP, we’ll want to see it hold support at or above its recent base range of .001-.0012.


Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. CETV

It’s been quite some time since we caught CETV on a Form-4 scan back in 2013. We followed the stock to highs well over 6.00 back in October.

After searching out a bottom, CETV again surged from the 2.10-range to the 3.40′s from November, and leading up to the beginning of 2014.

The stock produced yet another spike at the end of February that carried it from under 3.00 to nearly 5.00.

We come across this play as it is once again in a bottom-searching pattern. With the kind of moves this thing has made for us in the past, popping after big consolidations, we would be remiss to ignore its potential once it does find solid support and a subsequent rebound.


Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR

The PBR options chain has been very kind to us in recent months. When we first introduced this play on March 21st, the stock was trading at a low of 11.25.

It seems every time we called out our interest in a particular set of contracts in the weeks that followed, the gains would pile on, often to the tune of 100% or more. A quick scan through our PBR archive will confirm just how many times we took advantage of this stock’s recovery.

After peaking at a high of 14.87 on April 8th, the stock came back to bounce off support at 12.98 on April 15th.

Since then, it has been testing the boundary at $14, and hit a high of 14.03 yesterday, and already in the pre-market the stock is trading as high as 14.10, so we’ll try to take advantage of the trend using options.

We’ll be monitoring the $13.50 and $14 Weekly Calls throughout the rest of the week for potential dip-and-rip opportunities.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Pot Sector Updates & Much More

Commenting on Canadian Cannabis

Perhaps some of you may have already seen the stories that have been circulating about the current state of medical marijuana in Canada. This is a very complex issue that we are going to try to briefly break down to brass tacks. Essentially, beginning on the 1st of April, we are looking at the end of Canada’s MMAR (Medical Marijuana Access Regulations program, introduced more than a decade ago to allow Canadians with a need for cannabis to obtain a license to grow their own, or purchase it through one of the many dispensaries now operating across the nation.

The new rules will relegate supply duty to one of Health Canada’s eight commercial growers, or to one of roughly a dozen new growers that the Canadian health organization expects to lisnce when the new program takes effect. The move certainly has its opposition in the medical community and private sector, but barring some major development (such as a ruling by the Supreme Court of B.C., where the government is being sued under the assertion that the new laws are unconstitutional), all growing will fall to just a handful of state-sanctioned operations. What excites us most about the potential behind this development, is the direct involvement of some of the companies that we’ve been successfully tracking for quite some time which have formed a series of strategic partnerships.

Among the expected participants is one of our recent favorites in the sector, Creative Edge Nutrition, Inc (FITX). We’re eagerly awaiting further news regarding the status of its build on a 53,000sq. ft. grow facility in Lakeshore, Ontario, where it will become the largest such facility in all of Canada.

This also implicates another of our top pot performers, GrowLife, Inc. (PHOT) which has joined forces with FITX’s CEN Biotech subsidiary in this venture. The operation is expected to yield over a million pounds of marijuana annually to be distributed, with government approval, to the nearly 40,000 medical marijuana patients in Canada, a consumer-base that is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years.

Also in on the deal is ENDEXX Corp. (EDXC), whose “M3Hub Seed to Sale Tracking Platform” will be implemented to help track and maintain compliance for the facility’s huge crop output.

Other pot stocks we’ve covered stand to gain from Health Canada’s new regulations as well. Many of you will recall the huge gains we’ve already seen from Easton Pharmaceuticals, Inc. EAPH. Earlier this month, we received word that the company formed an alliance with a private B.C-based firm which has obtained government approval for its own grow operation.

All in all, we see the upcoming changes as even more reason why we can’t let the cannabis sector slip off of our radars. The new developments have been rolling in at a rapid rate, something we expect to continue indefinitely. Be sure to stay tuned as we keep you up to date on all of the exciting happenings!


Other Marijuana Related Interests

Fortitude Group, Inc. FRTD - We observed nice intraday activity from FRTD on Friday, as we had for most of the week up to that point. On the strength of a PR outlining the company’s new medical marijuana product “MariMist” designed for cancer patients, the stock made an intraday run of 43% as it spiked from a low of .0181 to touch a new high of .0259. From our initial alert low (Tuesday) at .0081, Friday’s high represents an overall move of 220%

Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. TTDZ - TTDZ has undergone a recent consolidation period after delivering us some sizable gains. Today we see news regarding the absorption of Triton into Green Cures, a story that we’re going to want to follow closely, as it could be just the catalyst we’re looking for to see TTDZ bounce back and potentially afford us a rebound opportunity:

TIBURON, CA–(Marketwired – Mar 3, 2014) – Green Cures, Inc. and Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. (OTC Pink: TTDZ) managements, announced today the conclusion and the closing of the takeover transaction and the full control of Triton by the Green Cures management. >> Full PR

Advanced Cannabis Solutions, Inc. CANN - Our first alert on CANN came on January 8th, at which point we observed a low of 6.31. What we’ve seen since then has been a rousing success-story, as the stock has gone on to hit a new high of 35.88. That’s a monstrous move of 469%, an unbelievable figure considering the price range of this stock.

Also, we have a couple of new marijuana stocks to add to our ever-expanding watchlist:

Cannabusiness Group, Inc. CBGI

Intelligent Living, Inc. ILIV



Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. CETV

We originally caught CETV on a Form-4 scan back in May of last year.  We were excited to see the buyer listed on the form as Time Warner. At the time, the stock was trading at 2.67. By late October, it hit a high of 6.60. After consolidating gradually to find support near our original alert price, prompting us to include it on Friday’s extended watchlist. After dipping to a morning low of 3.30, the stock would run as high as 5.17. marking an intraday move of  57%


Positive ID Corp. PSID

PSID has been responding extremely well since we re-commenced coverage on the stock on February 18th. At the time we observed a low of .0572. On Thursday, after several consecutive sessions of positive movement, the stock reached a high of .125, good for an overall move of 119%

We prepared a video of the PSID chart, pointing out current levels of support and resistance:
