Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

GW Pharmaceuticals plc GWPH
.
We said we’d be looking for action in the  in the GWPH Weekly $125 & $130 Calls yesterday after we learned the company had reacquired the rights to develop Sativex, a 1:1 THC/CBD extract blend oral spray product.

The result was a run from the stock that brought it to its highest PPS since March, and that move facilitated some very nice activity in our designated contracts. The $125 Calls saw a move from  3.00-5.90 for gains of up to 97%, while the $130′s tore up the chart, running a whopping 900% from .15-1.50!

There’s also a reasonable chance the solid trend could continue today, so we’ll be sure to stay on the lookout for that.


Fresh Options Ideas

Under Armour Inc. UAA – First up for new options ideas this morning we’ve got UAA, which is building a heck of chart setup in the wake of the revelation earlier this week that the company’s third-largest stakeholder had increased their position.

We’re going to set up shop with a short and extended term idea, homing in on the UAA Weekly $13.50-14.50 Calls, in addition to the 01/12 $14.50-15.50 Calls, in the event that its recent run of bullish activity is set to continue over a longer time frame.
_________

Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE – In the case of ADBE, the company posted beats on both revs and earnings for Q4, and we’re always looking for a good post-earnings options trade. We’ll look to the ADBE Weekly $175-180 Calls.

Eagle Bancorp, Inc. EGBN

After realizing that EGBN had been the target of dishonest short-seller tactics, we tagged some options ideas on the morning of December 5th – the EGBN 12/15 $50-60 Calls. The stock had been absolutely hammered in the previous session.

We saw some really nice moves from those contracts when EGBN immediately began to rebound ranging from 73-200% The stock dealt with some resistance over the later portion of last week and into this Monday, but managed to continue its recovery and go on to set another new high yesterday.

That produced another opportunity in a couple of the contracts we highlighted, with the $55 Calls trading from 1.20-4.40 for a 267% swing, and the $60′s exploding for a 600% rip from .10 to .70.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Play, Options & More

EnteroMedics Inc. ETRM

ETRM is the first in a group of plays that we’ve been familiar with in the past, that we’d like to circle back around to this morning.

We never stop looking out for stocks giving a bounce signal off of their 52-week lows, and ETRM raised that flag yesterday. The stock hit a new annual low (.123) as the short week kicked off on Tuesday, and yesterday’s session showed a clear rebound , trading between .14-.15, so we’ll just want to keep our eyes peeled for a mid-to-extended term recovery.


GW Pharmaceuticals plc GWPH

GWPH is another stock that we’ve had experiences with in the past, and today we’ve spotted a possible opportunity to take advantage of it once again.

On the flip-side of the coin from the previously mentioned play, GWPH has just hit its highest PPS since last October (104.58) yesterday on an epic single-day surge. That’s quite an impressive jump over its levels the last time we mentioned it in our reports, when it was trading just above $80.

Additionally, looking back over GWPH’s track record, it seems every time the stock makes a major move to the upside, there’s always a commensurate consolidation that follows. For this reason, we’re going to signal a range of extended-term puts in the GWPH options chain to track over the coming days and weeks.

Our four potential targets are going to be the GWPH 10/21 $105-90 Puts.


Rite Aid Corp. RAD

Also among stocks we’ve tracked at various times and for various reasons in the past, is RAD, though it has been quite some time since we last had our eyes on it closely.

Today we’ve been provided with an update on the status of the pending buyout of the company by Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) (>>View PR)

We’ll be watching the stock which is presently trading at a low multiple in the 8.30-range, as well as an options idea; the RAD Weekly $7.50 and $8 Calls, with the possibility of rolling up to the $8.50′s if and when the stock breaks its premarket high 8.42.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APRE Recap, Other Updates & More

Aperture Health, Inc. APRE

When we took a glance at the APRE chart in the premarket yesterday morning, we felt confident that there was a possibility of a continued uptrend carried over from Friday’s big move. Our feelings weren’t misplaced, as the stock recorded another nice intraday run beginning right at the opening bell.

From its starting price of .027 APRE broke out to a high of .0428, which registered as a 59% upswing. We then saw a consolidation into the close, exhibiting the type of volatility we’d mentioned in our report, but notably held support above the .03-mark.

We’re going to look for APRE to continue to build higher base levels of support moving forward. We can imagine a play with such technical characteristics providing us further opportunities in sessions ahead, so we’ll want to keep it on close watch.

Updates on Recent Ideas

We get so caught up with our seemingly innumerable interests at times, that we sometimes find ourselves having to backtrack a bit to provide updates on past ideas. Such is the case with the following stocks:

PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. PCSV, which we tabbed for longer-term watch two months ago to the day, ended up making a beautiful upswing of multi-bag proportions. Subsequent to our alert, we witnessed it trading in a range from .025-.14, a 460% move to the upside.

Skyline Medical, Inc. SKLN is a play that we zeroed in on late last month, and it too yielded a sizable move recently. The stock ran from .17-.29 for a comparatively modest but still very solid 71% spike.


Eyes on the Cannabis Sector

Our regular readers are certainly familiar with our repeated tracking of marijuana-related stocks, a pool from which we’ve pulled a great many big-time gainers in the past. We began drawing attention back to the sector in our reports early this spring, and it has really paid off.

GreenGro Technologies, Inc. GRNH – We’ve come back to this one time and time again over a period of years, but began tracking it more heavily beginning in late February. Since then, the general trend has been in a northerly direction, and over the past month or so, things have really begun to kick in high gear. In that span, we’ve seen GRNH run from a low of .0171 to an amazing ten-cent high yesterday. That’s a 485% swing! The stock has gapped up even further today, as high as .12 so far in the premarket, so it’s definitely occupying a portion of our attention this morning.

Terra Tech Corp. TRTC - We began re-alerting TRTC around the same period in late March at which time we observed a low of .2162 , and our most recent reminder came on April 5th. For this play as well, it has been mostly big moves to the upside since then. Yesterday the stock reached .7455, marking a 245% swing over our observed low.

Other big pot-plays that we dialed up near the end of March included Marijuana Company of America, Inc. MCOA and CannLabs, Inc. CANL. We’ve seen multi-bag moves from them as well, culminating in impressive new highs yesterday. MCOA ran from our observed low of .005 to a new high of .012, a gain of 140% while CANL made a move from .167-.449 for a solid 169% rip.

It’s become increasingly apparent over recent weeks that the cannabis industry heat-up we had anticipated is in full-swing. We’re going to need to stay aware and continue to monitor the entire sector, including stocks such as CANN, and CBDS as spring progresses.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GWPH, GRNH Updates & More


GW Pharmaceuticals, Inc. GWPH

Yesterday morning, we suggested our readers pay attention to the activity in GWPH, which had just published a blockbuster PR regarding top-line success in a late-stage trial of a cannabis-derived treatment (>>View PR).

The breakthrough nature of the study caught many people’s eyes, and throughout the course of the day’s news cycle, the story got significant national attention from multiple media outlets.

As we’d mentioned in our premarket report yesterday, we were going to do some cherry-picking, waiting for the gap-up to lead to an early dip (which it did), and then track in-the-money calls. To give an idea of the sort of scenario that was possible, the GWPH $75 Calls ran from 7.70-16.70 (+116%)

We’ll continue monitoring in-the-money calls in the $75-85 range, and if GWPH appears to want to break $90, consider rolling our strike price up to that level.


GreenGro Technologies, Inc. GRNH

The national attention cast upon GW Pharma also brought some nice activity into other cannabis-related plays, and GRNH was one of them. We’ve got an established history of tracking this stock that stretches back for years. A search of our archive shows that this morning marks the 35th occasion on which we’ve mentioned the stock.

The most recent of those mentions came this past Wednesday, when we tagged it in our morning watchlist, after which time we observed a low of .02.

Yesterday, the stock rode the wave of attention for the sector to an impressive 62% rip as it ran from .0215-.0349. It also marked a total swing of 74% over the low we witnessed last week.

Added Note: We prepared a list of some other marijuana stocks to monitor more closely in the light of heightened investor awareness of the sector:  CANV, CBDS, CANN, CNBX
