Taronis Technologies, Inc. TRNX

On Monday morning, we highlighted TRNX as a prime bottom-bounce candidate, and we’d like to wrap up the week by going over the solid swings which we subsequently observed in the stock.

On Monday itself, our choice in timing on calling this play was affirmed as we saw a solid 52% run from  .25-.38. This was followed by a pullback to a low of .1832 the following day, and over the course of the rest of the week, TRNX has stair-stepped its way back up to .34, which represents an additional 86% swing.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Pharma News

Pharma News Drives Sector

Somewhat of a reversal of fortunes has befallen major healthcare middlemen this week, and for them it’s good news. The Trump administration is doing a 180° on proposed changes to drug rebates that would have cost the healthcare industry.

The development is causing healthcare stocks to rise here in the premarket, and a few that have caught our eye in particular, are UNH, CI, and CVS. Each of these plays is flying high in early trading, so what we’re going to look for is a classic dip-and-rip scenario. Profit-taking right out of the starting gate should drive these stocks down off of their lofty premarket highs, and that’s when where we come in with the following ideas.

CVS Health Corp. CVS Weekly $57-58.50 Calls
Cigna Corp. CI $167.50-175 Calls
United Health Corp. UNH $250-255 Calls
