Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MYOS Recap, Gold Plays & More

  MYOS RENS Technology, Inc. MYOS

Easily the most solid performer that was discussed in yesterday morning’s premarket report, MYOS stole the show with everything we look for in a daily runner- an early burst that gives traders a chance at some nice intraday gains, high volume, and maintaining a good portion of the gains it makes into the close.

MYOS checked all three of those boxes yesterday, running early from its daily low of 3.61 up to a high of 5.48, which worked out to a nice 52% pop. MYOS closed at 4.72, maintaining over half of its daily advance, and did so on well over eight times the monthly average trading volume.

An all around performance like that certainly earns MYOS a continued slot on our radar screens in sessions ahead.


VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX)

With gold being so solid in the month of February, and indeed for most of 2017 so far, we want to rehash the idea we put forth on some GDX options and update our readers on their performance.

We initially signaled the GDX 02/10 $24-25.50 Calls in our report from January 23rd. Now set to expire on Friday, we wanted to circle back and remind our members of the kind of gains that could have been secured with this idea.

Here’s what they’ve done so far, and with gold continuing its climb, we can’t rule out seeing these upward trading range extended even further between now and the end of the week:

$24 Calls – Range: .32-1.46 – Max Gain: 356%
$24.50 Calls – Range: .19-1.05 – Max Gain: 453%
$25 Calls – Range: .11-.67 – Max Gain: 509%
$25.50 Calls – Range: .06-.39 – Max Gain: 550%

Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X ETF (NUGT) - Another gold analog we’ve got a history with is NUGT, so we’re also going to highlight some contracts that have some potential here as well. Being a triple-leveraged fund, the activity in NUGT resembles that of GDX, but the magnitude of the percentage gains it has made on its chart over the same period are notably higher.

Should the massive gold rally maintain its trend, we could be looking at some serious moves in the NUGT Weekly $13-14 Calls, so that’s where we’ll set our sights with this one.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom-Plays & More

New Options Ideas

After a relatively subdued half-day to close out the short week on Friday, we’re going to wipe the slate and start fresh today with a couple of options ideas. Based off of our initial scans and the premarket activity, we think each of these plays has the potential to help us start the week on a high note.

AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. AU – For this one, we’re attracted to the positioning on the chart, where, as you can see below, the stock has just begun to rebound off of its lowest PPS in roughly 9 months. Add that to some bullish premarket activity, along with a number of ripening indicators, and we’re very interested in the possibilities.

We’re going to be focusing in on the AU 1/20 $11 and $12 Calls, which gives us more than enough time to see the extended recovery we’re looking for.


_____

Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. CTSH – Our interest was roused by CTSH in this morning’s routine scan, and it too is currently in a favorable position on the chart, coupled with an appreciable premarket gap-up which could lead to a strong session performance.

For this one, we’re going to be looking at the CTSH Weekly $57-60 Calls.


Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. LEXG

Here we have another prime bottom-play with LEXG, which has managed to put together a pretty good rebound off of 6-month lows over the past few sessions.

Currently trading at a low multiple around .0025, we’re looking at a stock that ran from similar levels to over .02 back in August. Even a fraction of such a move from current PPS levels would equate to sizable gain opportunities, so we’ll be putting LEXG on watch in the days and weeks ahead.


_____

CollabRx, Inc. RNVA – This one belongs in the bottom-bouncer category as well. RNVA is coming off of its recently established 52-week low, and appears to be geared up for a continued comeback. We’re going to have this one on close watch as well.
