PEIX, BIOF, DARA, CGUD & Extended Watchlist

Pacific Ethanol, Inc. PEIX &

BioFuel Energy Corp. BIOF

Back in February, we caught these two ethanol stocks and rode them for some pretty nice gains. On Friday, both stocks appeared in our extended watchlist, and both stocks had another runaway performance.

BIOF opened at 7.55, and hit a high of 9.89 before closing at 8.98.Intraday gains of 19-30% were possible there.

PEIX had a day’s range of .4513-.52, marking possible gains up to 15%

With the way these two traded on Friday, we definitely want to keep them on our radar this week.


DARA Biosciences, Inc. DARA

DARA is another play from Friday’s Extended Watchlist that really fared well. A possible gain of 16% came when the stock closed at its high of day at 1.09, after dipping as low as .941. Also noteworthy was the huge amount of volume, 7.45M shares traded, to the tune of nearly 30x its 3mo average.

____, Inc. CGUD

CGUD did not get off to the start we were anticipating on Friday. We added it to our watchlist as a result of the huge volume we saw roll in on Thursday, to no avail. We didn’t see a continuation of that volume, as the stock trended down for the day, seeing a low at .0031 before closing out at .0039.

We are still watching however, to see if the news out late Friday has any positive effect moving forward:

ENCINITAS, CA, Sep 14, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CGUD), the technology company that has been designing and developing security applications for over ten years, has announced that it will be focusing on applications for the Apple(R) iPhone 5.

“The iPhone 5 ushers in new opportunities for software developers such as Com-Guard, Inc.,” said Dr. Edward W. Savarese, Chief Executive Officer of Com-Guard, Inc. “Apple’s iPhone 5 Release Could Break 170 Million Sales In A Year, Analyst,” says Lisa Eadicicco in an article dated August 8, 2012.


Added Note: Our mention of the AAPL $680 calls paid dividends on Friday. They traded as low as 8.00, and surged to close at 15.35.


Extended Watchlist:



EGCT, CGUD & Extended Watchlist

Ecologic Transportation, Inc. EGCT

We brought EGCT back into focus yesterday and the stock performed as we had hoped, making higher highs and higher lows for the second consecutive day. After gapping up in the morning, the stock held all day above the moving averages (20, 50, 100DMA’s), never dipping below .30.

The RSI punched through the 50 Line as well as the 50 MA overlay, and is getting ready to make its way into the powerzone. The blue bars on the histogram look ready to jump up to the bullish side, and the PPO is pinching toward a cross which could come as soon as today. The Slow STO also had a cross. All the indicators are improving on yesterday’s outlook as the stock bounces back from being oversold. Twice now we’ve seen EGCT run to the mid-to-high .40’s. This time around, we are looking to breach the .46-.48 area, as a break past that level would mean pressing new highs.

____, Inc. CGUD

We are adding this play to our radars today as a result of yesterday’s huge volume increase. The stock has a 3mo average volume under a million shares; yesterday it traded over 15 million shares, leading us to believe that something big could be brewing.

According to, the last reported shares outstanding was just under 380 million, with a float of just 65 million. If those figures are still accurate, yesterday’s volume accounts for a quarter of the total float. Should the buying continue into today, the float could be locked down, leading to a massive run.


Added Note: Last week we highlighted Apple options, and we made out pretty well with the $680 Calls. This week we saw a pullback going into Wednesday, as the 680’s traded as low as .70. Yesterday’s high was over 7.00; for anyone in Wednesday and out yesterday, you could have been looking at up to 1000% in gains. It isn’t the first time we’ve seen a ten-bagger around here, but it is always exciting when it happens.We are keeping an eye on these calls as Apple gaps up and tests new 52-wk highs.
