Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ANW Bottom Bouncer & More

Aegean Marine Petroleum Network, Inc. ANW

We hope everyone had a pleasant midweek holiday break; we expect a relatively subdued closeout to this short week, but one stock that is hitting our scanners as a high potential bottom play this morning is ANW.

As you can see from the included chart, the stock has been oversold for quite some time now, reaching unsustainable low levels, while a massive gap exists to the upside.

The stock has begun to fill that gap this morning, and we’re interested to see where the spike in activity is going to take ANW.

Five Below, Inc. FIVE – Options Recap

The fresh options idea we included in yesterday morning’s premarket report, the FIVE Weekly $90-95 Calls, was related to the company’s Q1 earnings report and strong guidance.

Unsurprisingly, those ideas provided us with solid chances for intraday profits as the stock ran from the $95 to the $100 range on the day. Be aware that despite the odd increments, the following are all of the contracts contained within our listed range. The moves they made were as follows:

$90 Calls – Range: 6.50-10.70 – Max Gain: 65%
$91 Calls – Range: 6.00-8.65 – Max Gain: 44%
$95 Calls – Range: 2.85-6.00 – Max Gain: 111%

Axovant Sciences, Inc. AXON

This will be third consecutive day we’ve had to mention AXON, which we initially tagged on Wednesday morning following a large group of Form-4 buy on Tuesday. This insiders were obviously pre-informed about the news of an $840M+ licensing deal for AXON’s Parkinson’s gene therapy that would be released the following day.

Our sleuthing gave us a leg-up and our call was timed with precision. We observed a low of 3.27 on Tuesday and yesterday the stock saw a high of 6.59, which represents an excellent three-day swing of 102%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Recap & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Followup

Only seven trading days have elapsed since we slated some longer-term Apple options ideas for observation on the 1st of this month. We were looking at the AAPL 06/01 $167.50 & $170 Calls and we’re pleased to return just over a week later to report that AAPL has mounted a heck of a seven day upswing, facilitating some fantastic gains in our flagged contracts.

So far the $167.50′s have traded in a range from 4.36-19.98, an increase of 358%, while the $170′s exploded 435% from 3.30 to 17.64.



Trip Advisor, Inc. TRIP Weekly $45.50 & $46 Calls

We also had some fresh options ideas in yesterday’s morning report, the TRIP Weekly $45.50 & $46 Calls. What we got from those, was a highly respectable intraday performance.

The $45.50 Calls surged up from .85-2.30 for a single-session rip of 170%, and the $46′s ran from 1.35-2.77, a 105% pop.



Helios & Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We want to place HMNY on intensive bottom watch this morning after noticing the setup on the chart. The stock has been absolutely punished over the past couple of trading days, and as you can see below, the RSI is now in heavily oversold territory.

The last time the stock was this oversold, at the beginning of April, it recorded an upswing of over 100% so we’ll want to keep an eye on its activities. at least for the remainder of the week, and possibly longer.


More Fresh Options Ideas:
ROKU Weekly $38-40 Calls
FARO 05/18 $50 & $55 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT New Highs & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

We’ve been closely tracking VTVT since including it our report on Tuesday morning as a bottom play. As we mentioned yesterday, the timing was essentially perfect. It took off on Tuesday, and yesterday that run persisted just as we suggested it may.

The stock traded in a range from 1.24 to a new high of 2.67 yesterday, representing an intraday move of 115% From Tuesday’s low of .79 the stock has registered a two-day upswing of 238% and has easily been the NASDAQ’s top play of the week.


Onconova Therapeutics, Inc. ONTX

Speaking of bottom plays, we’re always searching for the next heavily oversold stock, and we’ve got a candidate to bring forth today in ONTX. As you can plainly view on the chart snapshot below, the stock has been heavily sold off, and the RSI is definitely giving off that heavily oversold signal.

The last time that happened the stock did mount an appreciable recovery in the ensuing weeks, so we’re going to put ONTX on extended watch.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Watch Plays & More

Ford Motor Co. F
Ford is the first of a couple of bottom-watch plays we want to signal for observation as we kick off a fresh trading week. The month of January was rough for the Detroit automaker, bringing a precipitous fall into heavily oversold territory.

We are just now, in February, beginning to see the signs of a recovery. As you can see on the snapshot of the chart below, the stock has just started to come off of being oversold and bounce off of its lowest PPS since August. The MACD also appears to be converging for an upcoming cross, and there’s a gap to the upside as well.

We’ll look to take advantage of this setup by tracking the F 03/02 10.37-11.37 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.


BioMarin Pharmaceutical, Inc. BMRN

Another potential bottom play we want to look at this morning is BMRN, which also recently has been beaten down to what we feel are unsustainable low levels. We’re getting a heavy multiple-bottom signal as the strength index is tumbling toward extremely oversold territory.

The look of the MACD suggests some further decrease or sideways trading could occur, which is why we’ll want to look at a set of extended term options contracts, the BMRN 03/16 $80 & 85 Calls. With over a month until expiration, that should give us ample time for the stock to realize the recovery it appears to be building toward.
