Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DIS, TRXC Recaps & More

 TransEnterix, Inc. TRXC

We made a good catch when we included TRXC in yesterday morning’s premarket report, after it was reported that the company’s robotic surgery device got the regulatory approval it needed.

The result was a very nice run from a low of  2.15 to 3.05, the highest PPS the stock has seen since the spring of 2016. That works out to an intraday push of 42% and this morning TRXC is edging even higher in before-hours trading, so we’ll want to continue to keep an eye on it moving forward.


Walt Disney Co. DIS

We highlighted some options ideas for Disney yesterday morning, after noticing that it had  a nice bottom setup on the chart, trading near its ten-month lows.

For a near-term idea we signaled the DIS Weekly $96-98 Calls and among those five contracts, three produced opportunities for solid single-session gains.

$97 Calls – Range: 1.15-1.57 – Max Gain: 37%
$97.50 Calls – Range: .81-1.22  – Max Gain: 51%.
$98 Calls – Range: .49-.89 – Max Gain: 82%

We also noticed that the $98.50s had the highest open interest, so we will want to roll up our observed range a little and keep an eye on those for the remainder of the week.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX

We also want to put a few options contracts in the NFLX chain on watch. The stock has been in a general uptrend for nearly all of 2017, with the exception of one month between late July and late August. Currently the stock is approaching extreme overbought levels on the strength index just as it was prior to that downturn.

On the flip side, boosted guidance and a strong earnings call this morning could make things interesting. Due to these opposing factors, we’re going to want to watch some contracts on both sides of the fence, depending on NFLX’s behavior once regular market hours kick in.

If the stock can’t get above $207.50, we’re going to zero in on the NFLX Weekly $207.50 and $205 Puts. Conversely, if it holds above $200 on any pullbacks, we’ll focus on the Weekly $200-205 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Momentum Plays & More

 Possible Momentum Plays

We’re looking at a pair of stocks this morning that have broken out, and that we’d like to monitor on the chance that they produce sustained uptrends.

Leading Brands, Inc. LBIX - This was a fairly illiquid stock until just recently, when it broke out of a mundane pattern of low volatility and began a run into blue skies which lasted from Tuesday through Friday. We’ll stay wary of the possibility for course corrections, but a dip-and-rip scenario could definitely come into play here in coming sessions. The volatility has ramped up in a huge way, which is what we always look out for as swing traders.
______

22nd Century Group Inc. XXII – In the case of XXII, the stock has traded in a fairly predictable pattern over the past few months, during which time it has formed a solid upward channel. The company also recently closed a $54M direct offering at 2.65/share. We’ll look for this one to continue to build, keeping an eye on it as we kick off a new trading week.


Walt Disney Co. DIS – Options Ideas

We also want to signal a couple of options ideas for Disney, which has a pretty nice bottom setup on the chart, trading near its lowest per-share pricing since December.

For a near-term idea, we’re going to be looking at the DIS Weekly $96-98 Calls and the DIS 11/24 $98-99 Calls in the event of an extended recovery, which seems due at any time now.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OWCP’s Epic Run Persists & More

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

At this point, over a week since we first alerted on OWCP, we’re beginning to run out of superlatives to describe the uptrend that has now persisted over the span of an entire trading week. It’s increased by leaps and bounds each day, and yesterday produced one of the biggest intraday rips yet.

From its morning low of .035, the stock pushed its way to a new high of .073 for a solid double-bagger (+109%) on the day, and an absolutely massive rise of 1522% over our observed low from last Thursday.

Just as we stated in yesterday morning’s report, we want to keep our heads on a swivel concerning OWCP moving forward. When this monstrous breakout finally does end, opportunities for a subsequent dip-and-rip may present themselves, and at that point we’ll be ready to strike once again.


Ruby Tuesday, Inc. RT

We haven’t talked about Ruby Tuesday’s in our reports for nearly two years, but we see good cause to take a moment to revisit it today. Instances in which we see clear-cut short to moderate-term opportunities in both a stock and its associated options chain are rare indeed, but it appears we have just that with RT.

As you can see on the snapshot below, it just set a new 52-week low yesterday, but there was a notable recovery before market close wherein the stock recouped more than half of its daily losses. It makes RT a prime bottom-bounce candidate, and our other favorite indicators, the RSI and the MACD are both strongly suggesting that a more sustained rebound could be in the cards.



Additionally, we’re going to keep an eye on the RT 11/18 $2.50 Calls for a possible short to mid-term options trading opportunity if the recovery in RT plays out as we suspect it might.

______

Added Note: We also placed the DIS 11/11 $94-96 Calls on extended watch yesterday and the stock did begin to make the move up we were banking on there, so we’ll continue to track those closely as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Updates, Options & More

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

We hardly need to tell our regular readers that we caught and alerted OWCP last Thursday at a low of .0045, because it has appeared in every single one of our premarket reports since then.

It’s rare to come across a multi-day runner of any duration, but one that continues for the span of an entire week without so much as a hiccup is really something special. Yesterday the stock parlayed its four-day head of steam into another great intraday run from .0261-.0468, a jump 79%  That new high represented an overall five-session swing totaling 940%

Huge cheers go out to anyone who has participated in this epic run, which is part of the cannabis space, a sector that we’ve been tracking more closely as the landscape has been heating up. We’ll continue to track OWCP, not only for the potential of continued momentum, but for the eventual consolidation and subsequent bounceplay that’s sure to arise when that occurs.


Cannabis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CNBX

Speaking of the cannabis space, another related play that appeared in yesterday’s report went on to have itself quite a nice single-session performance.

CNBX traded in a daily range from a low of .06 to .0819 on more than triple the monthly average volume, and closed at that high. That was good for a 37% move, and with the bullish close to consider, we’ll certainly want to keep a close eye on CNBX for the possibility of continued momentum.


Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPRX

We’d also like to take a minute to update readers on the performance of CPRX over the past couple of weeks, a stock that we tagged for observation back on September 16th. On that day we observed a low of .99, and CPRX hasn’t dipped below that point since.

Over the past couple of sessions, things have really ramped up, with the stock setting a new high of 1.58 yesterday, up 60% from our witnessed low. That occurred on the third highest traded volume in the stock’s history, and the highest number of shares traded in a single day since 2013.


Aurinia Pharmceuticals, Inc. AUPH

While we’re on the topic of pharma plays we’ve tagged recently that have taken off to new highs, we also have to make mention of AUPH. We placed this stock on watch in Monday morning‘s report, and the ensuing run has been solid enough to warrant continued observation.

From a low of 3.07, the stock traded up to 4.13 (+35%) on roughly four times the monthly average volume, and is gapping up this morning to around $5, extending that figure even higher.


Fresh Options Idea – Disney Co. DIS

We like the current setup of the DIS chart, and the chances for a long-term recovery, so we want to signal a range of extended term options calls to correspond with that.

We’re going to radar the DIS 11/11 $94-96 Calls and keep track over them in the weeks ahead. .

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SUNE, DIS Updates & More

SunEdison, Inc. SUNE

We first began mentioning SUNE last month, as we were noticing the stock had been steadily beaten back since midsummer. We placed the stock on bottom-watch and since reaching its ultimate low of 2.55 on November 20th, it has been making steady strides to the upside.

We tagged the stock for more intensive tracking in yesterday’s premarket report, and were met with even more advances. SUNE put forth a modest but solid 15% increase as it traded in a range from 5.65-6.47. From our observed low just a few weeks ago, SUNE has produced an overall increase of 154%  We’ll continue to stay hot on its trail for as long as the bullish trend remains intact.


Options Recap – The Walt Disney Co. DIS

We were able to take advantage of the excitement surrounding DIS yesterday morning by submitting Weekly DIS $112-116 Calls for tracking, and in what seems like it’s become a regular occurrence for us, each and every set of contracts in our specified range made excellent intraday moves.

Here are the gains that were possible during yesterday’s session with these calls:

$112 Calls – Trading Range: 1.25-2.32  – Max Gain: 86%
$113 Calls – Trading Range: .80-1.58  – Max Gain: 98%
$114 Calls – Trading Range: .46-.95 – Max Gain: 107%
$115 Calls – Trading Range: .29-.54 – Max Gain: 86%
$116 Calls – Trading Range: .16-.29 – Max Gain: 81%


More Chatroom Success

Our good friend and chatroom participant, DJ, was up to his old tricks yesterday, entering yet another winning play into the mix.

NUVI was .008 x .009 at the time of DJ’s post (pictured above) and the stock ended up pushing to .0272 for an awesome 240% intraday surge.

Once again, a great example of why its a good idea to participate in our daily trader’s chats. To get involved, just send a Skype request to ‘stocksumo’.


Fresh Options Ideas – AAPL

This morning we’re looking to AAPL for a possible rally; the stock is gapping up and thus we will be looking for a potential dip-and-rip scenario. We are going to want to keep the Weekly $111-113 Calls on watch for today and tomorrow.

In the event AAPL pushes past the $113-mark, we’d of course look to roll up our strike prices to the $114′s and possibly even $115′s, depending on the magnitude of the surge.
