Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Several Key Updates

Intercloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

In yesterday’s report kicking off the new trading week, we backtracked to our alert of ICLD coming in our report from two Thursday’s ago, at which time the stock was trading at a low of .0157.

We mentioned how it had risen exponentially since that report, and specifically cautioned our readers to track its movements closely right from yesterday’s opening bell. The strength of the ICLD close on Friday was simply too strong to ignore and despite already having spiked considerably for us up to that point, the stock turned in another fantastic intraday performance.

From an early low of .05, the stock ran all the way to .0869 during the course of a session where it steadily climbed all day long and closed near its high. That marked an intraday boost of 74% and and an overall move up of 340% from our observed low from Thursday the 2nd,

Once again, with the intensely bullish close to another session, we’re going to have our eyes peeled for further moves from ICLD, whether they come in the form of a continued push upward, or are preceded by a dip-and-rip pattern off of these impressive highs.


Ciber, Inc. CBR

Prior to yesterday, CBR had been stuck in a rut for quite some time, but we noticed some abnormal premarket activity and decided to include it in yesterday’s report. It was a good idea, with CBR running from .4329 to .65, which works out to a 50% intraday pop.

The move came in conjunction with the company announcement that it was mulling over an unsolicited offer to be acquired through merger by Ameri Holdings, Inc. (AMRH) which values it at .75/share of CBR stock.

Given that the stock is still trading in the low .60′s at present, we’ll be interested to continue to monitor its progress as the company deliberates the merger offer.


More Key Updates

Cerulean Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CERU - We began tracking CERU just over a month ago, and after an extended period of slow and steady increases, finally yesterday the stock broke out in a more significant manner.

Our initial alert on CERU came on the 3rd of February, at which time the stock was trading at a low of 1.11. Yesterday the stock streaked to an impressive new high of 2.65, which comes out to a total upswing of 139%

______

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AUPH -  AUPH is another stock we’ve been tracking for much of 2017 so far that also broke to new highs yesterday. We witnessed a low of 2.95 in AUPH subsequent to our alert on the stock dated January 27th. Gradual increases over the next month would occur, and since we’ve hit the month of March, the stock has been going haywire.

Yesterday AUPH soared to (and closed at) 10.54 which represents a total move of 257% in less than six weeks!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BURL Recap & More

Burlington Stores, Inc. BURL – Options Update

Our first order of business this morning will be to go back to the options idea we signaled for the BURL chain on Thursday morning, the BURL 03/17 $85-95 Calls. We reported the solid gains that the strong earnings report allowed us on that first day in Friday’s morning report, and today we’ll have to follow up once again to relay the added opportunities we saw to close out the week.

We did caution on Friday that based on premarket activity, our ranges could be extended considerably, and that’s exactly what happened. The updates ranges showing the total moves we seen over a two session span are as follows:

$85 Calls – Range: 5.60-11.13 – Max Gain: 99%
$90 Calls – Range: 2.50-7.35 – Max Gain: 194%
$95 Calls – Range: .71-3.50 – Max Gain: 392%


Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

GALT is a stock that we began tracking earlier in 2017, including it in our report on January 17th. Shortly following that alert, the stock saw a low of .935 and it hasn’t looked back since.

We followed up with an update of GALT on February 10th, at which time we had seen a relatively modest range of .935 to 1.29 (+38%). We noted that the gains would be “sustainable if GALT can manage to crack past the current 200DMA” (then at 1.32).

That did happen, and on the 15th we posted another followup stating “One more bullish push will get us into double-bagger territory for this idea, and the stock may well make a run into the 2.00-range.” Our assumptions proved spot-on again, as one week later, the stock went on to hit a high of 2.21, representing a total move up from our observed low of .935 amounting to 136%

Once again GALT is heading to highs, this morning trading as high as 2.30 in the premarket on the heels of some positive clinical trial data (>>View PR). We’re going to want to be paying attention to its activity as we open up another trading week, as expectations of extended gains once again do not seem unreasonable.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Update, GALT Recap & More

Whole Foods Market, Inc. WFM – Options Update

We just wanted to circle back for our WFM options idea that we submitted last week. We designated contracts with a 02/17 expiration instead of weeklies to give our idea time to develop and it ended up being a good call. Our targets were the WFM 02/17 $30 and 30.50 Calls.

Yesterday WFM had a morning pullback which was followed by a nice reversal, and the stock ended up bulling its way into the close near its high of day. The calls we signaled last week had a significant move as a result. The $30 Calls ran from .14-.52 (+271%), while the $30.50′s exploded from .05-.21 (+320%). We are going to want to keep them on our radar for the rest of the week into expiration.

Key resistance is at the 200DMA and 50DMA of 30.38 and 30.76, respectively. If WFM can crack the latter, we may look to roll our strike price up and push out another week to contracts expiring next Friday- particularly, the WFM 02/24 $31 Calls.



Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We’ve now witnessed quite a run from GALT over the past few weeks, validating our previous reports on the stock wherein we contested that a serious run-up appeared likely.

It began with our report on 01/12, in which we noted GALT’s ripening chart, and surmised that forthcoming gains of 100% were not out of the question. We observed a low of .935 subsequent to that followed by a nice 38% push to 1.29 leading into our most recent report on GALT last Friday.

In that report we had this to say “We feel these gains are sustainable if GALT can manage to crack past the current 200DMA at 1.32. As you can see on the included snapshot, the chart continues to bear the look of potential for even further increases“.

Yesterday GALT met those expectations nicely with a run to a new high of 1.85, which marks an overall increase from our observed low of 98%, falling just a hair shy of our initial speculations. Yet, our prediction seems to be coming full circle this morning as the stock is gearing up to fill its gap on the chart that we pointed out in our initial report. One more bullish push will get us into double-bagger territory for this idea, and the stock may well make a run well into the 2.00-range.


Green EnviroTech Holdings Corp. GETH – Recap

We were quite pleased with the performance of GETH following our featured report yesterday morning, as the stock provided traders with a pair of solid intraday swings amid an onslaught of volume.

Right from the opening bell, GETH shot up from .165 to the high of day at .235, marking an initial rip of 42% The stock subsequently pulled back to a daily low at .1514, before surging up once more to .215, matching the morning’s 42% gain exactly.

All of this useful volatility was accompanied by massive volume on the order of 39X the monthly average, or 19X the 3-month average. It represented an all-time record high for shares of GETH traded in a single session!

Yesterday we had identified .15 as the key support level that needed to hold in order to make GETH interesting, and our sentiments in that regard haven’t changed.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom Bouncer & More

Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

This morning we’re taking a look back at GALT, which we highlighted as a ripening play that we felt was worthy of observation last month.

Our suspicion that the chart had growth in store turned out to be correct. Since we put this play on our radar it has gone on to trade in a solid range from .935 to 1.29, which works out to an increase of 38%

We feel these gains are sustainable if GALT can manage to crack past the current 200DMA at 1.32. As you can see on the included snapshot, the chart continues to bear the look of potential for even further increases, so we’ll stay on the lookout for that.


Whole Foods Market, Inc. WFM

WFM is showing some nice volatility and positive price action despite a fairly uninteresting earnings release this week.

We like to follow the activity regardless, and today it’s leading us to focus on some WFM options. Rather than selecting weekly options that will expire this afternoon, we’ll go out to contracts that expire next Friday; the WFM 02/17 $30 & $30.50 Calls.


NantKwest, Inc. NK – Bottom-Bouncer

The NK chart gave off a pretty good bottom-bounce signal yesterday and the day before, so we’ll be interested in tracking the action in this play over the next several sessions on the chance that it can string together a multi-session uptrend.

From the chart below, it’s easy to see why we feel NK could be ripe for the picking. The RSI is increasing, while the MACD is a hair’s breath away from a bullish cross that generally indicates some significant move to the upside is in the stock’s near future. We’ll have our eyes peeled for that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: 3 Stocks Hitting All-Time Highs

Uranium Resources, Inc. URRE

First thing this morning, we want to highlight the recent performance of URRE, which we slated for tracking in last Friday’s report. It has since made an appreciable move to the upside that is worthy of note.

We saw shares changing hands for as little as 1.62 before yesterday’s session carried the stock to a new high of 3.94, demonstrating a rise of 143% in just a few days’ time. Yesterday’s big push also came on record volume, to the tune of more than 25M shares traded.

It puts the stock in unprecedented territory in terms of momentum, so we’ll be very interested to watch the activity unfold from this point forward. We would have to surmise that a signifcant dip-and-rip could very likely take place at some point in the near future, so we’ll be looking to time that to our advantage.


OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

Continuing along with our coverage of OWCP’s stellar performance this week, we have yet another new high to report this morning. We mentioned yesterday that the stock was trading at its highest prices since 2014, a fact which firmly designates OWCP as a Blue Sky Breakout play, and lo and behold, the breakout was destined to continue for yet another session.

The stock traded in a range from .26 to .41, an intraday pop of 58% which occurred on the highest volume in more than two months. The new high achieved pushed our already mind-melting observed range on the stock since our alert on September 29th, to an incredible 9011% in less than ten weeks!

Like the above-mentioned play, OWCP is now in uncharted waters, trading at its highest PPS levels of all time, and thus must be characterized as a Blue Sky Breakout, and treated as such.


PM&E, Inc. PMEA

Also coming out of yesterday’s premarket report to make quite a respectable intraday move was PMEA. This subpenny play traded in a range from .0008 to .0015 for a solid 87% move on the day.

Incidentally, it represented the third mention of the morning yesterday that would go on to set a new all-time high!


Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

Lastly, we want to radar an unfamiliar stock in GALT this morning after noticing a ripening chart setup. We have included a snapshot below pointing out the various aspects that we find attractive.

We’re going to place GALT on watch in the days and weeks ahead. A filling of the highlighted gap on the chart and return to September pricing, from current levels, would be a move of more than 100%
