We observed a low of 1.05, and after a huge run on Friday, LINU reached as high as 3.20. It represents a very nice 205% move for us in under a month’s time.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GYST Video, Other Updates

The Graystone Company GYST

Our first order of business this morning is to provide an update on GYST, which was the subject of our special report yesterday. If you did not catch our report, you can do so by hitting the following link >>GYST REPORT

To illustrate GYST’s performance during yesterday’s session, what better way to go over it than a video chart from our very own Stock Sumo! Click through to the video below, and also receive a quick lesson in understanding Level 2 quotes, which is vital for any beginning trader to take the next step!

>>GYST Video

The dip-and-rip we saw in GYST from .007 to .012 represented an intraday upswing of 71%, so, a very good first day of observation. As Stock Sumo was mentioning, we want to see GYST hold support at or above the channel between .0064-.007 on any pullbacks, and will look for an eventual break of resistance at .0125.


OTHER UPDATES:

Viva Entertainment Group, Inc. OTTV -We tagged OTTV in  Friday’s extended watchlist and we wanted to circle back this morning to mention the solid activity that followed from this stock over subsequent sessions.

On Friday, we observed a low of .0004 and witnessed a pretty nice 75% rip to .0007. As of yesterday, OTTV had extended its high to .001, and boosted our three-session observed upswing on the stock to a nice, round 150%
_____

Pilgrim Petroleum Corp. PGPM – For another quick update, we’ve witnessed a pretty good two-day swing in PGPM after alerting it in Tuesday’s premarket report, and observing a low of .011. Yesterday, the stock hit .0183, which was good for a respectable overall move of 66%


Dollar General Corp. DG

We want to leave off this morning with an earnings-related options idea. We’ve had a ton of success this earnings season, and will try to keep that going with Dollar General.

Not only did the company reveal a beat on sales and profits for the quarter, but the current chart setup was already primed for a bullish move. We’ll be putting the DG Weekly $75-78 Calls on watch for potential day and/or swing trades.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Update, Bottom-Watcher & More

Alibaba Group Holding, Ltd. BABA

First up this morning will be a review of yesterday’s options trading idea that we had for BABA as it came off of an earnings beat. The range of contracts we wanted to track were the BABA Weekly $77-81 Calls and while the stock didn’t make a big enough push to facilitate gains in all of them, we saw some nice action on the lower end. The $77-78′s each made two significant intraday swings that could have been traded upon for the following gains:

$77 Calls – Trading Ranges: 2.00-2.75 (+37%), 1.50-2.30 (+53%)
$77.50 Calls – Trading Ranges: 1.55-2.32 (+49%), 1.37-1.87 (+36%)
$78 Calls– Trading Ranges: 1.20-1.90 (+58%), .83-1.45 (+75%)


Nate’s Food Co. NHMD

There was no need to be patient with NHMD after we tagged it for observation just prior to the opening bell in yesterday’s premarket report. We noted that the stock had seen some momentum buildup; we were looking for a carryover and found it.

The sizable intraday swing came early in the session as NHMD ran from a low of .004-.0074, an 85% pop. It enacted a bit of a dip and rip into a close at .006. We’ll leave a space on our radar screens reserved to monitor NHMD moving forward, as volatile subpenny plays like this can often be good for daily flip opportunities.


JTH Holding, Inc. TAX – Bottom-Watcher

We’ve got an interesting chart setup in TAX, which as you can plainly see without the aid of annotation on the snapshot below, is currently looking egregiously oversold. Even as Liberty Tax was recently voted “Best of the Best” by Entrepreneur magazine(>>View PR) the stock has been taking a tremendous beating.

Over the past few sessions the stock seems to have been trying to find support in the low $11-range, and that is where we come in. We like to track stocks after they’ve been pounded into the pavement for possible rebound plays, as our regular readers knew very well. In the case of TAX, a return to its 50DMA at which it was trading less than a month ago, would mean gains exceeding 50% over yesterday’s closing price.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

Pazoo Inc. PZOO

PZOO has been progressing well in the past several sessions since we last touched base with the stock a couple of weeks ago. We had just received word from the company that its wholly-owned CannabisKing Distribution subsidiary had struck two significant deals (Links to PR’s below), and witnessed a two-session swing of 74% as a result.

After regrouping and bouncing off of a low of .0046 (07/13), PZOO has made continuously higher lows for the rest of this month, and pushed its PPS back to the current range (.006-.007). We’ve provided the following snapshot illustrating the current bullish characteristics of the chart.

We’ll be on the lookout for further updates regarding the many irons PZOO currently has in the fire, and you can be sure that we’ll pass them along as the stories develop.


Fresh Options Ideas

As we approach midweek with earnings drops in full swing, we’re going to formulate a few corresponding options ideas we feel have the potential to perform well:

Ford Motor Co. (F) - Ford set record North American profits and beat Wall St. expectations handily this morning. The stock is gapping up moderately, so we’re going to taking a look at F Weekly $14.50 and $15 Calls, which should produce some nice action.

Pfizer, Inc. PFE -  Pfizer also had an earnings beat on their Q2 release today, and our related options ideas will be to monitor PFE Weekly $34.50 and $35 Calls.

Baidu, Inc. BIDU – After an extreme analyst downgrade, BIDU is taking an absolute beating, and is leading us to include a rare idea on the bearish side of things; we’ll be tracking BIDU Weekly Puts in the $180-175 Range.


Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. CYTX

We also want to raise a flag on a familiar stock cropping up in the news feed this morning. Early this year we saw CYTX make a huge move, and after spending the last several months in a general downtrend, some FDA-related news out this morning could be just the thing to catalyze a reversal. We’ll be watching intently for that possibility; check out the news below.

Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. (CYTX) today announced that Kerastem Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bimini Technologies, received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conditional Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) approval to conduct a clinical trial studying the safety and feasibility of its technology for the treatment of female and early male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). >> FULL PR

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LNKD Options Update & More

LinkedIn Corp. LNKD – Options

A week ago today, we formulated some options ideas for LNKD including a range of longer-term contracts for our watchlist, specifically August $220.00-230.00 Calls. This morning we wanted to give an update on the trading ranges of those contracts and the opportunities they have afforded us thus far.

08/21 $220 Calls – Range: 9.80-14.30 – Max Gain: 46%
08/21 $225 Calls – Range: 8.02-11.30 – Max Gain: 41%
08/21 $230 Calls – Range: 5.10-9.35 – Max Gain: 83%

We want to keep in mind that we essentially have all summer to continue monitoring these contracts. The swings we’ve seen up to this point could just be the tip of the iceberg, so we won’t let LNKD slip off of our radars. The stock has been on a steady rebound from recent lows since the end of May. We’ll be looking for it to continue to building the chart with higher highs and higher lows; key resistance is presently sitting at the 50DMA of 226.39.


Medican Enterprises, Inc. MDCN

We also need to remind our readers of a recent bottom-watch call we made in the form of MDCN. This cannabis-related play has appeared in our reports several times; most recently on May 26th. At the time we mentioned that the stock was searching for support after a months-long downtrend, and that we felt the possibility of a rebound was forthcoming.

While it took several sessions to occur, MDCN finally found its legs yesterday with an 85% swing from .0013-.0024. It closed with strength, maintaining more than 50% of its daily gains on heavy volume, so we’ll definitely continue to observe the action here for the possibility of a multi-day run.


TapImmune, Inc. TPIV

Another stock that we tagged earlier this spring has been making serious moves. Just to update, we tagged TPIV on April 16th and at the time the stock was trading below .20. Since then, it has increased more than three-fold, now pushing its way up into the mid-.80′s.

This stock could produce ample bounce-play opportunities when it finally does consolidate off of this latest run-up, so we’ll put it on closer watch into next week.
