Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PIXY Review & More

ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY

As we were mentioning on Monday morning, we included PIXY in Friday’s report on its first ever trading day. Generally speaking we don’t tend to cast our lot in with brand new IPO’s, but a trusted source in our network gave us a heads-up on PIXY, and didn’t let us down.

We of course passed it along to our readers immediately in our premarket report on Friday, and the stock, after two trading days has made some really nice progress.

From the initial opening price of 6.30 we observed in PIXY, it went on to hit a high of 9.70 to kick off the short trading week on Monday. That marks a two-day swing of 54% for this newly-trading juggernaut. We’ll continue to be on the lookout for PIXY to keep recording higher base levels of support.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

An honorable mention from Monday’s report is OPXA, especially considering that sessions just prior to a holiday break are typically low-key affairs.

The stock put up a solid intraday performance, running 35% from a low of a dollar up to 1.35, and pulling back into the close at 1.15. However, premarket activity this morning has seen the stock trade back to just below Monday’s high. This is one we’ll want to keep on our radar for the time being.


Aphria, Inc. APHQF

We’ve been familiar with APHQF for quite a time, but today will be the first occasion we’ve actually mentioned it in our reports.

Today, we wanted to point out that the company released two PR’s yesterday, the more significant of which was the announcement of a 1-year cannabis supply deal with a licensed Canadian medical provider which will bring upwards of $5M in revenue beginning midway through next year. We’ll provide links to both PR’s so you can check them out for yourself.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge Options Calls & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

If any of our readers had ever been in any doubt as to why we occasionally try to “shoot the moon” with a risky options idea containing weekly expiration contracts on a Friday, then this past Friday’s session answered their questions for good. We try to shoot the moon, because occasionally you can actually hit it! That was certainly the case with the SPY Weekly $238-50-239.50 Calls that we highlighted in Friday morning’s premarket report.

We stated our reasoning behind the idea as having noticed a “promising jobs numbers release, and what seems like it could be a bullish day for the markets as a whole.”  It really worked out exactly as we hoped, and because the SPY can be traded 15 minutes into post-market hours we got an extra boost to the monster moves we saw, which were as follows:

$238.50 Calls – Range: .33-1.41 – Max Gain: 327%
$239 Calls – Range: .07-1.00 – Max Gain: 1328%
$239.50 Calls – Range: .01-.47 – Max Gain: 4600%

As you can see, those gain opportunities ranged from really good, to ridiculously good, to full on eye-popping! Cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!


Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL

We’ve taken notice of what could be a prime rebound opportunity in UNXL. As you can see plainly on the chart below, the stock bottomed out at the end of last month, and has thus far been building a higher base of support in the month of May.

We’re eager to track this play to see if the trend will continue because if you’ll notice two of our favorite technical indicators on this chart, the RSI and the MACD, both are exhibiting an extremely bullish look at the moment. We’re going to place UNXL on intensive watch, because the party could just be getting started.


____

Extra Note: For an added bottom-bounce possibility, we’ll also have California Resources Corp. CRC on our radar, as it just underwent a bullish reversal on Friday, and maintained more than half of its daily gains.

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.
