Blue Horseshoe Stocks: USRM, ICLD Follow-ups & More

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM
We’ve been tracking USRM very closely over the past few weeks, since initially mentioning it on the morning of February 27th and witnessing a huge subsequent increase( .014-.0545,+289%). We monitored the consolidation off of that high down to .0175, and once again signaled that it was time to give it our close attention last week on the 15th.

The rebound that has since occurred has been very nice, with USRM surging back to .053 yesterday, a jump of 203% over its .0175 swing low. So that’s twice now, in the span of less than a month that we’ve seen a 200% move out of this play. We’re obviously going to continue following it, with the type of price action and volatility we’ve seen so far, USRM is currently a swing-trader’s paradise.


InterCloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

We also had a ringer with ICLD earlier this month, when we signaled it on the 2nd before the stock took off from a low of .0157 to a high .0985, a 527% rip. After watching it consolidate off of those highs for a few days, re brought it back to readers’ attention in yesterday’s premarket report, and our attempted timing of the reversal couldn’t have worked any better.

From an early low of .0302, the stock steadily made its way up to a high .0439 shortly after 1PM, for an intraday spike of 45% and held more than half of its daily gains into the close, so this one will also remain on our watchlist in coming sessions.


Northern Dynasty Minerals, Ltd. NAK

We tagged NAK last Thursday after watching the stock search out a bottom for quite awhile. The stock did bounce, and has thus far posted a 31% increase, reaching 1.58 yesterday and closing just a tick below at 1.57, as you can see on the included snapshot.

Also on the chart, we can see that the RSI is on the verge of cracking the 50-line, and the MACD has just crossed in a bullish manner. Conditions seem to be ripe for the possibility of a continued rebound, so we’ll pay close attention to NAK in sessions to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP, POTN Recaps & More

Potnetwork Holdings, Inc. POTN

Last week, we touched upon the fact that the February comments from the White House pertaining to stricter enforcement of federal recreational marijuana laws appear to have walked back by Jeff Sessions. That led us to reassert our interest in closely tracking pot stocks. as the cannabis industry’s feet have been pulled from the fire, so to speak.

On Friday, we tagged POTN for the first time after noticing some recent increases in volume and price action, and it was a solid idea for the day. POTN traded in a range from .038 to .055, for chances at intraday gains of up to 45% on volume of roughly three times the monthly average. It led to a strong close, just a tick under a nickel at .049. We’ll definitely want to continue to monitor this play as we kick off a new trading week.


Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Recap

After noticing it in a bearish pattern, then getting word of an analyst downgrade, we went with a bearish options idea for SNAP on Friday, and it worked out quite nicely for us. We had signaled the SNAP Weekly $20 Puts for possible quick-strike trade opportunities, and it was there for the taking.

Those contracts traded up from a low of .30, and reached 1.04, an intraday move amounting to 246% Cheers to anyone who was able to use that move to their advantage!


EV Energy Partners, Inc. EVEP

Both of the above-mentioned plays appeared in our reports for the first time ever on Friday, and continuing along that track, we’re going to highlight another stock this morning that we haven’t covered before.

EVEP has the look of a bottom-bouncer as you can see from the following chart snapshot. We’re going to put this one on our watchlist as a potential extended rebounder, with the RSI about to crack above the 50-line and the MACD just having underwent a bullish cross.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CCTC, EBIO, Options & More


Potential Momentum Plays

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. CCTC - In a characteristic move, CCTC repeated the history of its own chart, as a stock that seemingly likes to make volatile swings to the upside. It breached its 50DMA in a bullish manner yesterday, so we are going to tag it for observation today in the event of continued momentum.

The chart is showing a series of ripening indicators as well. In order to hold our attention, CCTC will need to maintain support at or above that 50DMA, currently at .153 on any pullbacks.


______

Eleven BioTherapeutics, Inc. EBIO
– EBIO is a stock we’ve come back to on several occasions in the past, and today, we want to circle around to point out its current status as a bottom-bouncing momentum play.

It hit four-month lows just five sessions ago, and has made a decent effort at a rebound since then, so we’ll keep it on watch for the possibility of further recovery.


Options Ideas

We’ve got a couple of earnings-related options ideas this morning as well. As our regular readers are surely aware, post-earnings options trading is one of our favorite and most reliable ways of rooting out rapid short term gain opportunities.

Shake Shack, Inc. SHAK – Weekly $35.50-37 Calls

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $38-41 Calls

______

Reminder: We’re also still tracking our idea on Starbucks from last Friday, the SBUX Weekly $53.50-55 Calls. The stock has traded up to nearly $55 in the premarket today, so we’ll be open to the possibility of seeing our gains extended there.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Weekly Wrap-Up, Options Plays & More

Marijuana Company of America, Inc. MCOA

Following today’s session, we will have been tracking MCOA’s movements for exactly one month. When we first began talking about this play in early October it was trading in the subpenny range (.0094), and the results of one heck of a bullish month carried the stock to nearly twenty cents!

We had already seen a rise leading up to yesterday morning’s update on the stock of 1200% but the epic run wasn’t finished. The stock traded in a daily range from a low of .083 and hit an incredible new high of .1985 before tapering off into the close. That worked out to an intraday run of 139%

From our observed low it measures as a one-month overall upswing of 2011% which is one of the largest gainers we’ve bagged all year where stocks are concerned (Our options calls reach percentage gains of more than 1000% fairly routinely).


Galenfeha, Inc. GLFH

Also continuing its multi-day run yesterday was GLFH, which we brought to the table on Monday morning. It has now officially appeared in every report we’ve published for the entire week, on the strength of yet another solid performance yesterday.

We said early on that we’d be looking for GLFH to be a slow and steady riser over these four sessions; it has made gains every day but never exceeding 35%, and yesterday’s move was no exception. What it has done, is maintain those advances and kept piling one on top of the other.

The stock traded in a range from .055-.069 yesterday, for an intraday increase of 25%, and measuring from our observed low of .026, the total intraweek run its posted comes out to a highly respectable 165%

It’s rare that stocks see multi-day runs exceeding three days, so at this point, we’ll begin to ready ourselves for a consolidation that could come at any time.


Fresh Options Ideas

Our incredible success with numerous stocks this week dictated that we shy off of the options trading arena for a few days, but it’s high time for us to enter some ideas into the mix this morning. For both of the following plays, we’ll submit a weekly target* (expiring today) as well as one for next week, just in case these stocks put together multi-day increases of their own.

TWLO Weekly $32-35 Calls & 11/11 $35-36.50 Calls

SBUX Weekly $52-53 Calls & 11/11 $53.50-55 Calls

*Dabbling in weekly options contracts on a Friday should not be attempted by anyone except expert traders!

Lands End, Inc. LE

On the chart below, we’ve pointed out the various reasons for why we like it from a technical perspective. Additionally, we always like to track a wide range retail stocks as the holiday shopping season approaches, and it fits the bill in that regard as well.

We’ve got an extended-term options idea for this one, with the LE 12/16 $12.50-17.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Options Success & More

VXX & SPY Options Recap

We ended last week on an extremely strong note with respect to our premarket options-trading ideas. As we’ve done so many times this year, we offered up some target ranges in which we felt we’d see big activity, and every single contract highlighted therein would go on to make huge intraday swings.

We outlined our interest in the VXX $20 and 19.50 Puts SPY $206-207 Calls, specifying that we’d flip to VXX Calls and SPY Puts in the event that the VXX breached its premarket high of 19.70. That never occurred, we therefore stuck with the original idea, and the possible gains afforded to whoever was paying attention were quite large:

VXX

$20 Puts  – Trading Range: .59-1.79  – Max Gain: 341%
$19.50 Puts – Trading Range: .29-1.28   – Max Gain: 203%

SPY

$206 Calls – Trading Range: .75-3.91  – Max Gain: 421%
$206.50 Calls – Trading Range: .48-3.42   – Max Gain: 612%
$207 Calls – Trading Range: .31-2.05 – Max Gain: 561%

These plays were also topics of discussion in our daily live trader’s chats last week, and we’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries from our readers who want to get involved. We welcome anyone who enjoys our daily reports to join in, and all you need to do is log onto Skype and send a contact request to username stocksumo.


VitaCig, Inc. VTCQ

We put VTCQ on watch in this past Wednesday’s morning report, and the stock made one heck of a two-session swing from the following morning to Friday afternoon’s closing bell.

Friday’s move alone was quite impressive- the stock ran from .008-.145 which comes out to an intraday pop of 81%  Our observed low of .0042 came promptly at the open on Thursday, and measured from that point, Friday’s closing price represents a total move of 245%

Granted the fact that we did see VTCQ close at its high of day on roughly three times its monthly average volume, we will want to leave this play on our radars. As usual we’ll look for it to record higher highs and higher lows, and to retain our attention, it will need to maintain support at or above .01. The next key area of resistance appears to be sitting at .0181.
