Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. EKSO
What started as a nominal gainer that came off of our extended watchlist on Wednesday, EKSO rolled its 37% performance over into yesterday’s session, carrying on the multiday action. After a strong close at 1.81 on Thursday, we said we’d be interested in continuing to track EKSO as we head into week’s end, and it was a great idea.
The stock continued its ascent to a new high and reached 2.18. From Wednesday’s low of 1.40, it works out to a respectable two day swing of 56% Just as we mentioned yesterday, the stock closed strong again, and we’ll want to keep monitoring for higher highs and higher lows .
Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea
Valeant has been working its way down to an area of relative support recently, consolidating after a nice run off of its 52-week lows from April to May. This morning in the premarket, we’ve taken notice of the fact that VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.
We want to be waiting in the wings with an options idea to take advantage of the action following what could very well be an early dip-and-rip formation. We’ve called VRX and a ton of other such stocks in these positions, and done very well in the past.
We’ll be looking to the VRX Weekly $12 and 12.50 Calls* for possible swing trades today.
*We never include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers that trading weekly options at the end of the week is a hugely risky proposition that should not be attempted unless you are an expert trader!
Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE
We want to point out a possible momentum play in AMPE. We’ve talked about this stock in the past, and as you can see from the included chart snapshot, it has been mounting a decent rebound effort off of a double bottom over the past few sessions.
We’re going to place AMPE on watch into next week, as a similar move to the one exhibited by the stock earlier this spring would mean considerable gains from this point.
