Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CPXX Buyout & More

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPXX

Just under a couple of weeks ago, we chose to alert CPXX in our morning report from May 19th. The stock had been gaining significant ground in sessions prior to that, to the point we felt it warranted our attention.

It was a good thing we drew attention to it when we did, because what followed was a solid run-up from our observed low of 15.73 into the $18-range. This morning, our witnessed gains received yet another big boost, as a takeover has been announced that will see CPXX acquired by Jazz Pharmaceuticals for $1.5B, or, 30.25 a share.

As of this morning’s premarket high on CPXX, our observed PPS increase on the stock in a matter of just seven trading sessions has been extended to a very solid 95%


Lending Club Corp. LC

Speaking of extended gains from plays that we’ve been discussing recently, we also had LC put up a noteworthy performance on Friday that culminated in new highs for us since we began tracking the stock.

Just to refresh our readers’ memories, we called LC as a bottom-bounce candidate last Monday, at which time we observed a low of 4.19. Friday’s run carried it to a high of 5.10, marking an intraweek move of 22%

We’re going to want to continue to monitor its progress as the chart is still looking quite ripe for a continued uptrend. As you can see on the provided chart snapshot, we’ve got a steadily-strengthening RSI combined with a recent bullish MACD cross in addition to a significant gap on the chart that runs from the 5.50′s to the 6.70′s.


Cliffs Natural Resources, Inc. CLF

We’re also going to place a tag on CLF this morning. We like the recent activity and the look of the current chart. Like the aforementioned play, we’re faced with a number of bullish indicators that are urging us to keep CLF on our radars as we kick off a new trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KGNX Review, Options & More

KollagenX Corp. KGNX

After initially mentioning KGNX in Tuesday morning’s premarket report and observing a big intraday swing from this subpenny momentum mover (.00189-.0037, +96%), we mentioned yesterday morning that we wanted to continue to monitor its activity.

It ended up being a smart idea, as we bore witness to yet another solid upswing. After touching a low of .0025 right out of the starting gate, it didn’t take very long for KGNX to begin a run that lasted for the better part of the entire day. The stock ran hard into the close, touching a new high of .0044. It marked an intraday rip of 76%, and an increase of 133% over our observed low on Tuesday.

Once again recording higher lows and higher highs along with stronger than average volume, we’ll need to leave a slot on our radars open for KGNX as we head into week’s end.

Speaking of subpenny momentum plays, we want to keeping watching the activity in On4 Communications, Inc. ONCI.which we also put on watch in Tuesday’s premarket report. We saw the stock trade as low as .0021 that day and it hit .004 yesterday, a move of 90%

With the stock building a continuously higher base of support in each of the past four sessions and running to new highs, it is currently in blue-sky breakout territory. We continue to stay on its trail.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Update, New Idea & More

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX-  Options Update
 
We wanted to circle back to touch upon an update for the VRX 04/22 $32 Calls we initially slated for observation on Tuesday.  VRX trading activity allowed for us to witness a run from 2.90-3.90 that day, for possible gains of up to 35%

We stated as much in yesterday’s morning report, with the added reminder that we felt certain the scope of those gains would increase, and we were spot-on once again.

For the day we observed a move from 4.25-5.25, a relatively modest 24%, however as measured from the low we saw on Tuesday morning, it marked a two-day swing of 81%, so cheers to those of our readers who were following along with us on this play!


Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – New Options Idea

Up until yesterday’s session, TSLA had been enjoying an epic rally which began in early February, however, that began to fizzle out over the past couple of days. The stock now appears very top-heavy, and that was confirmed by a fall below its 200DMA yesterday.

In the event that this is a protracted backsliding event, we’re going to want to be ready with a corresponding options trading idea.  We’re going to zero in on contracts in the range of TSLA March 24th $220-215 Puts, which qualify as Weekly contracts*, as the markets are closed tomorrow.

*Please remember, trading weekly options contracts on a Friday is an extreme high risk/high reward proposition, and is recommended for highly experienced traders only.


Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPXX

CPXX was a point of focus for us last Wednesday, when we caught a hot PR hitting the wires, and despite the stock already being up considerably at that point, we were able to glean a healthy 41% gain out of the stock that first day (from a low of 6.44).

As we’ve kept observing the play over the course of the week, we’ve seen a continual stream of higher highs and higher lows, which culminated in a new high of 12.64 yesterday. In exactly one week’s time, we saw CPXX make an overall swing totaling 96%


Great Basin Scientific, Inc. GBSN

We also want to give ourselves a quick pat on the back for calling GBSN to our readers attention via our extended watchlist yesterday. The stock was experiencing highly abnormal activity due to some FDA News and despite gapping up to the extreme, we still saw a dip-and-rip which carried the stock on an intraday run from .222-.29, a 31% swing.

Cannabis Sativa, Inc. CBDS

CBDS was part of our cannabis stock watchlist yesterday, and even as the majority of the sector was seen to be fading, CBDS bucked the trend and produced an excellent intraday opportunity.

We watched as the stock took off like a rocket right at the opening bell from a low of 1.26, and didn’t stop until hitting its 2.45 high-of-day shortly before 11′clock. That works out to a 94% swing and it came on immense volume, to the tune of 23X the 3-month average.

Cheers go out to any of our readers who caught a piece of the action on CBDS, which was the first in a trio of selections from yesterday’s premarket report to produce respectable intraday performances.


Cardinal Resources, Inc. CDNL

Next in line was CDNL, which is a stock that we’ve referenced in our reports on numerous occasions over the past several months. This subpenny runner turned in an intraday rip of 77% as it ran from .0047-.0083 on a little more than twice the average trading volume, and managed to hold the majority of its daily advance into the close at .0074.

It marked the second consecutive big day for the stock trending off of its lowest prices in roughly six months, so we’ll certainly want to continue tracking its activity, watching for it to record higher highs and higher lows in coming sessions.


Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPXX

We caught CPXX yesterday on the heels of an attention-grabbing PR (link below) which hit wires post-market on Monday afternoon, relating to encouraging results from a late-stage clinical trial. Despite already being up close to 300%, we still felt it warranted a tag in our watchlist, and we weren’t disappointed.

As is often the case in such circumstances, we saw a dip-and-rip unfold early, after which time the stock ran from a low of 6.44 to 9.10, for a solid 41% swing on absolutely massive volume.


Bottom-Watchlist

We’re going to designate the following stocks as bottom-watch plays and reserve a spot on our watchlist for each of them over the next several sessions:

Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc.  PTX
Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc  SNSS
Peak Resorts, Inc.  SKIS
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc.  QTWW


Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. CMG -  Options Idea

We want to throw in a quick options idea this morning as well, and it’s going to come in the form of a short. Specifically, we’re going to be looking at the CMG Weekly $485-475 Puts.
