Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HEAR Review & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR – Review

Our primary focus has always been to find near-term trading opportunities first, assigning longer-term calls a secondary priority. However, we’ve had quite a bit of good fortune this year in identifying stocks that have gone on to have considerable extended runs.

HEAR is one such stock, that we first signaled for observation on April 9th, at which time the stock was trading for as little as 2.76. Over the ensuing nine weeks, we have seen an incredible, near-continuous bull run that has resulted in new highs of 23.20 yesterday. That works out to an increase of 740% over a span of a little over two months!

Being in blue skies, there’s no telling what new highs we might see in HEAR; it’s certainly plausible to believe we may see our total observed gain reach a thousand percent at some point in the near future. At the rate things have been going, it’s certainly not an unreasonable thought.


H&R Block, Inc. HRB – Fresh Idea

We also want to provide a quick update on our bearish options idea from yesterday’s premarket report, the HRB Weekly $26-24 Puts. We formulated this range after noticing the stock getting kicked hard despite posting an earnings beat in the post-market on Tuesday.

HRB did gap down a little too far for the $26′s to see much action, but we had respectable chances to profit off of the other two contracts in the range. The $25 Puts ran from .65-1.05 for a gain of 62%, while the $24′s put up a double-bag performance with a 133% rip from .15-.35.


Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We tagged GALT on Tuesday morning after noticing a big surge in activity, and its run has continued nicely over the course of the week.

We’ve now observed a solid 37% bullish move from 5.83-8.00, and will be on the lookout for the possibility of more new highs.

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.
