Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ZAZA Update & More

ZaZa Energy Corp. ZAZA

We tagged ZAZA last Thursday on the heels of an earnings beat, and at the time, we mentioned that we’d put the stock on watch for a classic dip-and-rip scenario.

While it took more than a full session for it to settle back and find support, it did so on Friday, bouncing off of the 2.87-mark. Yesterday ZAZA continued to trend off of that bottom and reached a subsequent high of 3.60. For us, that marks a three-day turnaround on ZAZA with possible gains of up to 25%

In order for us to remain interested in ZAZA, we’ll need to see support hold at or above the 50DMA of 3.24.

Geron Corp. GERN

We also want to make mention of GERN, which we put on watch Friday after the company announced it had licensed its cancer treatment to a unit of Johnson & Johnson in a contract that could reportedly be worth up to $935 million.

After seeing a low of 2.72 from GERN initially on Friday, the stock began to rebound up to yesterday’s high of 3.10. (+14%) and appears to be gapping up slightly in the premarket today.

Folks might be interested in tuning in to the live webcast of GERN presenting at the Stifel 2014 Healthcare Conference in New York,  NY today at 1:50 p.m. EST. Webcast link can be found at GERN’s Website, HERE >>>

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TWTR Options, ZAZA Earnings & More

Twitter. Inc. TWTR – Options

Part of our attention this morning will be given to TWTR, and, more specifically TWTR calls, as we’re catching the stock in the midst of rebounding off of it’s lowest price point since the end of July. The stock found support just shy of the $40-mark on Tuesday and registered higher lows and higher highs during yesterday’s session.

We’ll look to take advantage of a possible continuation of the trend using the TWTR options chain. The $42 and $43 weekly calls are going to be where we look for intraweek flip opportunities, and for a longer-term swing trade idea, we’ll track the December 12th $44 calls (Last Traded: 1.45).

If TWTR can fill the remaining gap on the chart to the $47-range before 12/12 we could be looking at a 100% increase in those calls from here, so it’s going to be something we’ll pay close attention to over the next month.

ZaZa Energy Corp. ZAZA

ZAZA has us on alert this morning as well; the stock is gapping up heavily on a post-market earnings release that included some interesting figures. The company has a conference call scheduled to begin at 10:00AM EST >>> Listen In via Yahoo! Finance

ZAZA’s Q3 Highlights

  • Total production of 54.8 MBOE, a year-over-year increase of 145%.
  • Revenues of $2.7 million, a year-over-year increase of 144%.
  • Total operating expenses declined by ~60%; G&A declined by ~30%.
  • Net income of $10.1 million vs. a net loss of $20.6 million.
  • Total debt declined by $7.7 million or ~8% over the past nine-months (3Q14 vs. CY13).


We’re going to be monitoring this play for an early run-up on the untraded-upon earnings report, followed by a possible dip-and-rip scenario. We’ve sniped out rapid gains on both sides of the fence in situations just like this one, just by staying extra vigilant, so ZAZA will be another interesting play to follow as we close out the week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JNUG, RAMO & More

Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF (JNUG)

We’ve been tracking JNUG in the wake of last week’s annual low on the price of gold, and as the price of the precious metal has rebounded it has provided us with a few swing-trade opportunities.

Initially we saw JNUG run from 3.59-4.44 (+24%), and after pulling back slightly to 3.65 yesterday morning, the ETF ran back to 4.40, an intraday increase of 20% on several times the average trading volume.

We expect to witness similar patterns of activity in JNUG as long as the price of gold continues to rebound. We’re looking for it to hold support at or above $1161 (Trading in $1166-range this morning)

Ramoil Management Ltd. RAMO

We want to tag RAMO this morning and add it to our list of cannabis-related stocks; according to a PR we just caught coming over the wires, the company is set to begin clinical testing with both CBD and THC (chemical compounds found in marijuana).

It is conveniently timed with the “major hurdle” that was just cleared with regard to government approval of using cannabis for the treatment of soldiers diagnosed with PTSD. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has given its stamp of approval, with the measure only needing DEA clearance before becoming policy. >> Read Article in US Today

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — RAMOIL MANAGEMENT, Ltd (RAMO) wants to honor and support our veterans by announcing that RAMO Bio-Med, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, is beginning with controlled clinical testing of “RAMO CBD” and “RAMO THC” formulas for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly known as PTSD. >> Full PR

Dendreon Corp. DNDN

We’ve been watching DNDN for a bounce opportunity this week, as the stock has been way oversold of late. This morning it appears as if the stock is trying to gap up slightly, so we just want to throw in a reminder that this stock could turn into a hefty bounceplay at any time.
