Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WIZD Update, Options Recap & More

Wizard World, Inc. WIZD

We want to provide an update on WIZD as we kick things off this morning, but first a quick memory-refresh; we called this stock as a bottom-play on Friday, July 31st after noticing it had been beaten back to new 52-wk lows just prior to that. On that day, we observed a low of .33, and WIZD did an excellent job of sustaining a recovery throughout last week, during which we provided multiple updates.

On Friday, the stock attained yet another new high, reaching a PPS of .53, which represents a respectable one-week increase of 61%

The chart continues to exhibit a bullish look, as we’ve pointed out on the following snapshot. Ideally we’d like to see the stock hold support at .48 on any pullbacks, and below that, .45. We’ll have it on steady watch as trading for the week commences.



Options Rundown

To recap a couple options-trading ideas we put forth at the end of last week. We cautioned that they may be subject to volatility, and were correct in that assumption. The result was several chances for prominent gains:

Apple, Inc. AAPL - On Friday we were mentioning our interest in AAPL Weekly $115 Calls, and the trading action that ensued was quite noteworthy. We were witnesses to an initial pop of 207% (.43-1.32), followed up by a pullback to .74, and subsequent spike to its high-of-day at 1.44, good for an added intraday move of 95%  That was followed by several lesser, yet still significant  swings; from .28-.54, .20-.45 and .20-.62.

___

First Solar, Inc. FSLR - Similar volatile trading action in the FSLR options we specified occurred on Friday (Weekly FSLR $51-52 Calls.). Several opportunities were there for the taking as those contracts all made healthy primary runs followed by multiple dips-and-rips.

The $51 Calls ran 170% from .63-1.70,  and again from .76-1.10 (+48%). The $51.50 Calls first pop carried them from .34-76 (+124%), and later it registered added swings from .18-37 and then from .05-.19 in last hour of trading. Finally, the $52 Calls took off on a 163% rip from .38-1.00 , and managed an extra move from .24-.60 in the last hour.


Added Notes:

Aquinox Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AQXP is catching our eye off of the scanner; the stock has been on a major tear since the release of positive mid-point data on one of its drug trials, as well as an earning beat late last week.(>>>View PR)

Also on our watchlist to start things off today will be Value Setters, Inc. VSTR.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Celebrating Four Great Years!

Options Wrap-Up

We’ve been going heavy on our options tracking this week, and have unearthed some real gems as usual. To close things out today, we’ll identify a couple of things to watch for once action commences. 

Apple, Inc. AAPL - To reiterate our AAPL idea, we were tracking the stock and observing for a bottom early this week, which it found Wednesday. It led to some impressive gains in the Weekly $115 Calls, and those are the contracts that we’ll watch for added activity. *Remember: Trading in options with a weekly expiration on a Friday carries an elevated risk/reward dynamic.
___

First Solar, Inc. FSLR - Earlier this week we saw intraday gains running from 188-579% from our FSLR ideas. We’ll roll our previous tracking range ($47-50.50) on Weekly FSLR Calls up to the $51-52 Level.
___

FitBit, Inc. FIT - We’ve witnessed gains approaching the 100%-mark from Weekly FIT Calls in prior sessions, but today we’re going to enter a longer-term idea into the log for extended observation. We’re interested in the FIT September 18th $64 Calls.


Sub-Penny Bottom-Watchlist

Stragenics, Inc. ASAB & Pervasip Corp. PVSP

As you can see from the side-by-side snapshot below, each of these .0008-stocks appear ready to rebound off of their recent relative bottoms, and we’ll want to be paying close attention when they do. Especially in the case of PVSP; a play that we tracked over a monster run from late-June, early-July.

American Green, Inc. ERBB

We’ve been familiar with this stock since back when it was still trading as Tranzbyte Corp., although 2015 has been a near-constant downslide for the stock. One look at the chart and it’s self-evident.

It did however, respond to the logging of a new 52-week low on Wednesday with a higher low for yesterday’s session, so we’ll want to see if it can continue to establish a higher base of support. A rebound could be forthcoming at any time, so we’ll re-submit this to our running watchlist.


SPECIAL NOTE:

Today we are celebrating the 4th anniversary of Blue Horseshoe Stocks. It’s been a great ride so far, and we can’t wait for all the great things the future holds! Our thanks go out to our many valued subscribers and readers from around the globe for your continued support! Without you we’d have no reason to do what we do, so, Happy Birthday to the entire Blue Horseshoe Stocks community, one and all!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Rundown & More

Wizard World, Inc. WIZD

We’d like to start things off this morning with an update on a stock we’ve been tracking since the end of last week. We introduced WIZD in Friday’s premarket report, presenting it as a potential bottom-play. We noticed that it had recently been crushed down to new annual lows, and drew up a chart to illustrate the opportunity.

Over the last few sessions the stock has done a good job of building a higher base of support and regaining some of the ground it lost this summer. Yesterday it attained a daily high of .45, which marks a 36% upswing over our observed low.

We’ll want to see WIZD continue to make a healthy recovery, ideally holding support above .40 on any pullbacks. The stock was trading up close to a dollar as recently as June, and a return to those levels from current pricing would mean gains approaching 100% The chart is still bearing the look of potential, as you can see a number of bullish indicators on the snapshot below.


Options Rundown

First Solar, Inc. FSLR – Yesterday we identified a couple of potential options ideas, and one of them provided several chances for lucrative intraday trades. Our targeted range was the Weekly $47-50.50 Calls and while every set of contracts within did make increases, for time’s sake we’ll just highlight some of the top gainers.

The 47.50 Calls surged 188% from 1.91-5.50. The $50′s traded in a range from .63-3.15 , a whopping 400% jump, while the $50.50 Calls had the biggest day with a run from .38-2.58, an amazing 579%.
___

FitBit, Inc. FIT - Also on our radar was FIT, which we mentioned on Tuesday with the idea of tracking the $50-51 Calls. Those contracts ended up making wild runs into earnings:

The $50 Calls traded as low as 2.19 on Tuesday and reached a high of 4.40 yesterday (+101%). The $50.50 Calls went from 2.14-4.10 (+92%), and the $51′s jumped from 2.00-3.85 (+93%).

After getting beat up on the heels of that earnings report, this morning we’ll watch for chances with the FIT $45-48 Calls.
___

Apple, Inc. AAPL - We also want to make mention of AAPL, which we’ve been following this week via our extended watchlists, and in our traders chatroom*. After a period of consolidation, we were awaiting an AAPL rebound, and yesterday we got what we were looking for- big moves occurred in the Weekly $115-116 Calls. Moving forward, we’re going to be on the lookout for the possibility of added gains in those plays, especially heading into tomorrow when they close in on expiration.

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We also want to shine a light on PZOO again today, with the company making a significant press announcement right at the open this morning:

WHIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – Pazoo, Inc. (OTC Pink: PZOO), is pleased to announce that the company has signed a lease to secure a location for its Oregon testing lab facility.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BIOC, Options Ideas & More


Biocept, Inc. BIOC
-
BIOC came off of yesterday morning’s extended watchlist making a big move to start the week. The stock traded up from a low of 1.71 and ran as high as 2.95, registering as an intraday increase of 72%  on heavy volume in the neighborhood of 17X the 30-day running average.

After pulling back slightly into the close at 2.20, BIOC is presently gapping up in the premarket this morning( High of 2.64), so we’re going to keep it on our watchlist for the time being.

The strong session came in conjunction with a positive PR which hit the wires yesterday:

SAN DIEGO, Feb 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — Biocept, Inc. (Nasdaq:BIOC), a molecular oncology diagnostics company specializing in biomarker analysis of cell-free circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) and circulating tumor cells (CTCs), today announced that its blood-based diagnostic, OncoCEE-BR(TM), was used to determine hormonal status of metastatic breast cancer patients in a prospective study performed at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. Findings from the Columbia study were recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical and Translational Oncology.>>> FULL PR


Direxion Daily Russia Bear 3X ETF (RUSS)

The idea we brought forth yesterday of monitoring RUSS, which trades inversely with the Russian economy, is probably going to be one that we follow for a longer period of time given the drawn out nature of the events currently playing out in the Ukraine, and how they’re affecting Russia.

That being said, we did see some immediate upward price action as RUSS ran into the close, recording a daily trading range from 12.58 – 13.74, a modest, yet solid 9% appreciation on the day.


Added Note:

We also want to make note of a proposed joint venture in the works between two companies whose stocks we’ve mentioned in the past: First Solar, Inc. FSLR and SunPower Corp. SPWR. Both stocks began to move on word of a possible IPO for a new vehicle to be comprised of existing assets from each party. We’re going to keep them on watch as we await further updates on the situation.

They’re both gapping up further this morning, so we’ll be on the lookout for potential dip-and-rip scenarios caused by profit-taking. In such an event, we’ll be fixating on In-the-money Weekly Calls for options daytrading possibilities.

TEMPE, Ariz. and SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — First Solar, Inc. (FSLR) and SunPower Corp. (SPWR) announced today that they are in advanced negotiations to form a joint YieldCo vehicle (the YieldCo) to which they each expect to contribute a portfolio of selected solar generation assets from their existing portfolio of assets. Upon the execution of a master formation agreement, the parties intend to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) for an initial public offering of limited partner interests in the YieldCo (the IPO). >>> FULL PR

FB Calls, PLUG, LTCHD, INO, GRPN & Extended Watchlist

Facebook FB Options

Many of you will recall Wednesday’s report, wherein we outlined our interest in the FB 9/13 $41 Calls. As you can see on the chart below, after a quick spike they mostly tapered back, to a low of 1.29, before surging as high as 2.04 yesterday afternoon. That move represents a 58% gain.

With FB closing at 42.75 yesterday, it appears to be gapping up this morning, having last traded at 43.25 pre-market. Provided this upward trend continues, we could be looking at even further profits as we head into next week’s expiration date.


Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

After an appearance on yesterday’s watchlist, PLUG  appears to be gearing up for a move. The stock traded at a low of .572 yesterday, and appears to be gapping up today, currently trading at the .66-level.

PLUG has brought us big gains in the past, which is a large part of why we are monitoring it so closely at present. Back in February we followed PLUG coming off of its 52-week lows as a bounce play from the .125-area, which have obviously led to triple-digit gains.

We’ll be watching PLUG to maintain support at a previous swing high of .55, and the next key level of resistance is going to be at .76.


mCig, Inc. LTCHD (Soon to be MCIG)

LTCHD continued to line our pockets on Thursday, with a 52% intraday move from the daily low of .171 to its new high of .26. Remember, on Wednesday, the stock provided us with a chance at 92% in gains in a run from .12-.23. Overall, a buy at the low following our alert and a timely exit at its peak would have amounted to a profit of 117%


Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. INO

We were looking at INO a couple of weeks back as it was rebounding from a recent consolidation, and the stock was around 1.60. It looks as if it is continuing its recovery today as it is trading pre-market at 2.17, a rise of 36% from Friday the 23rd’s low.


Groupon, Inc. GRPN

We first started talking about Groupon this spring at around the 6.00-range. We followed up with an early August mention upon a good earnings report, and we saw highs in the 11.20′s. After receding back to 9.27, the stock is currently trading once again at the 11.00-range.
