Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PIRS Review & More

Pieris Pharmaceuticals Inc. PIRS – Review

Of all the types of plays we search for, bottom watch plays can require the most amount of patience as compared to other quick-strike ideas that we formulate. We highlighted PIRS as such back in mid-February, and over the past quarter, the stock has produced some very favorable results in two distinct runs.

When we initially signaled our interest in this stock, or shortly thereafter, it was trading for as little as 2.83 and over the course of the next two months, it gradually made its way to 4.00 (+41%). After a pullback down near its original level at 2.81 halfway through last month, the stock has begun to run once again. This time it has reached all new highs, with the stock changing hands for as much as 4.68/share on Friday. That second push allowed us to see an overall increase of 67%

We wouldn’t be at all surprised to have to come back to PIRS once again in the near future. In addition to the company’s joint clinical venture with pharma super giant AstraZeneca, the stock itself has recently received analyst upgrades that could just be the beginning of PIRS’s next leg-up.


Xalles Holdings, Inc. XALL

We are also looking at the incredible momentum recently built up by XALL, which has been assisted by the resurgence of Bitcoin here in 2019, which began in January in the mid-$3000 range, and has persisted to the present time to the current highs near $8700.

The company also recently decreased its public float by around 50%, making it that much easier for the stock to move. We’ll be interested to continue to monitor its progress, especially if the latest Bitcoin boom continues to persist as it has in recent months.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY, MAXR Recaps & More

Maxar Technologies, Inc. MAXR – Review

Despite what appears to be a significant downturn looming this morning, the markets as a whole posted a solid bullish session on Friday, and that helped one stock we’ve been tracking in recent weeks to record a new high for us.

We tagged MAXR for observation in mid-March, and before the end of the month, it had consolidated down to a low of 3.83. The month of April brought a fairly steady uptrend, and Friday’s strong performance kicked it up another notch. The stock hit a new high of 6.66, marking a move of 74% in just over six weeks. The stock filled almost the entire topside gap that was on the chart, and the RSI has just cracked into the Power Zone, so we’ll want to continue to keep an eye on its activity.



Sysco Corp. SYY – Options Idea

Despite continued China trade tensions throwing a wrench into the markets to start the week today, we are going to be looking a little further ahead with an options idea relating to the imminent golden cross on the SYY chart, combined with the company’s earnings beat posted this morning in the premarket.

The food wholesaler has a chance to break a double top, and we’re going to be ready with an options idea in the event that it manages to do so. Our highlighted targets are going to be the SYY 06/14 $69.50-71 Calls.

Special Note: Our extended watchlist today contains more penny stocks than usual. The OTC tends to heat up when uncertainty strikes the larger markets. We’ll have an eye peeled for interesting activity on that front.

Midatech Pharma plc MTP

Following its inclusion in our extended watchlist yesterday morning, MTP made a solid intraday run that we wanted to recap this morning. The stock traded in a range from a low of  2.95 on up to 3.86. That was good for total possible intraday gains of up to 31%

We’ll continue to keep an eye peeled for further gains on MTP, which recently surged to more than $10 just last month. The potential for the kind of extreme volatility we look for is certainly there.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HEAR Review & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR – Review

Our primary focus has always been to find near-term trading opportunities first, assigning longer-term calls a secondary priority. However, we’ve had quite a bit of good fortune this year in identifying stocks that have gone on to have considerable extended runs.

HEAR is one such stock, that we first signaled for observation on April 9th, at which time the stock was trading for as little as 2.76. Over the ensuing nine weeks, we have seen an incredible, near-continuous bull run that has resulted in new highs of 23.20 yesterday. That works out to an increase of 740% over a span of a little over two months!

Being in blue skies, there’s no telling what new highs we might see in HEAR; it’s certainly plausible to believe we may see our total observed gain reach a thousand percent at some point in the near future. At the rate things have been going, it’s certainly not an unreasonable thought.


H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea

We also want to provide a quick update on our bearish options idea from yesterday’s premarket report, the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts. We formulated this range after noticing the stock getting kicked hard despite posting an earnings beat in the post-market on Tuesday.

HRB did gap down a little too far for the $26′s to see much action, but we had respectable chances to profit off of the other two contracts in the range. The $25 Puts ran from .65-1.05 for a gain of 62%, while the $24′s put up a double-bag performance with a 133% rip from .15-.35.


Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We tagged GALT on Tuesday morning after noticing a big surge in activity, and its run has continued nicely over the course of the week.

We’ve now observed a solid 37% bullish move from 5.83-8.00, and will be on the lookout for the possibility of more new highs.
