Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MNKD Recap & More

MannKind Corp. MNKD

We’ve been tracking MNKD pretty closely since April (saw a low of .6662 in May), and more recently, mentioned it in both Monday’s and yesterday’s premarket reports.

The intraweek swing made by the stock has been rather impressive, as it ran from a low of 2.01 on Monday to a new high of 6.51 yesterday. That works out to an increase of 224% Even readers who only caught yesterday’s alert still had a shot at gains of up to 80% (3.62-6.51).

Now’s a good time to mention our daily traders chats for the first time in awhile. These Skype-based live chats are open to any of our readers (Send contact request to “stocksumo”), and often provide added ideas over and above what we include in our daily premarket newsletters.

We signaled the MNKD Weekly $3.50 Calls and as you can see on the included snapshots, those subsequently ran from .40-2.80 for an intraday burst of 600%


Today we’ll want to keep an eye on the $5.00 and $5.50 Calls* in case MNKD wants to test that 6+ range again. We may also look to the 10/20 $5.50 and $6.00 Calls for possible swing trades in coming sessions.

*Important: Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s extremely risky.


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ – Options Update

After a premarket earning beat and outlook hike. we alerted on a range of contracts in the STZ options chain yesterday morning. We were looking to the STZ 10/20 $210-220 Calls and all three produced notable moves on the day.

The $210′s ran from 2.05-4.96 (+142%), the $215′s from 1.10-2.37(+115%), and the $220′s from .55-1.01 (+84%). We’ll definitely want to continue to keep an eye on these calls, which don’t expire for another couple of weeks.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VNR Recap & More


Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC. VNR

We began watching VNR as it hit its annual lows back in the fall, initially tagging it in our report from October 6th. We’ve seen some pretty impressive swings since then, and have routinely included the stock in several of our reports.

Most recently was the first trading day of 2017, and we’ve since witnessed another bullish push out of VNR as it has traded in a range from .70-1.11 (+58%) over the past couple of weeks. From our overall observed low of .46 in VNR just after our first alert in October, this week’s new high represents a 141% increase.

Next we’ll be looking for the stock to make a run at a key resistance point sitting at the 200DMA of 1.17



Alkame Holdings, Inc. ALKM

We’ve been tracking ALKM since Wednesday’s premarket report, and over these couple of sessions, we have seen a decent trading range on the stock.

From Wednesday’s early low of .0014, ALKM has touched a high of .002, which works out to a swing of 43% to the upside. We’ll leave the stock on our radar, and be on the lookout for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Avinger, Inc. AVGR – Reminder

We noticed AVGR getting ready for a heavy gap-up after bouncing off of its bottom yesterday. Although it only rose a modest 17% upon the open from 2.90-3.40, we’re going to still want to track its movements heading into next week, as it may yet continue to pile up more gains.

Several indicators on the chart are still looking ripe for that possibility despite all the lost ground it recovered  with yesterday’s gap-up.


Microsoft Corp. MSFT -  Options Idea

We wanted to signal a range of options ideas we feel have potential after Microsoft beat the Street’s estimates in yesterday’s post-market earnings report.

We’re going to be tracking the MSFT Weekly $64.50-66 Calls, starting at the lower strike price, and rolling up if the stock looks like it’s going to continue to break out and push the strike price into the money. The premarket high on MSFT is 65.68, so in order to consider rolling up to $66′s, we would want to see a break past that mark.
