Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Options & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Idea

If you root through the seven year newsletter history archived at our website, BlueHorseshoeStocks.com, you would find that we’ve discussed AAPL more times than most stocks, even though we haven’t mentioned it much in recent times.

In fact, AAPL’s was the first go-to options chain that we focused on when we began including options trading ideas a few years ago. This morning, we’re coming back to this old favorite with a fresh idea to coincide with the current Apple hype.

The company is rolling out the new iPhone today, among other things, and iPhone announcements have historically provided some good ammunition for options traders. Today, we’re going to slate the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls for observation in forthcoming sessions as AAPL’s event is expected to drive up activity not only in its own stocks, but likely other tech stocks as well.


FutureLand Corp. FUTL

On Friday morning, we included FUTL in our watchlist, and the stock has made a solid two-swing for us. From Friday’s low of .0012 the stock set a new high of .0026 to kick off the week yesterday, which works out to an overall jump of 117% Yesterday’s big push came on volume of more than three times the monthly average.

We would also include a note of caution in terms of long term interest in this stock. The company dropped the news that it had entered into a joint venture with Greenleaf Holdings  that would “deliver solar technology to the cannabis industry”. Yet here it is, two months later, and there have been no further details given. We tend to be wary of companies that don’t keep a steady line of communication to shareholders.

That being said, we have seen some really nice movement on the chart as we mentioned above, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on FUTL.

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TXHD, AUPH Recaps & More

Textmunication Holdings, Inc. TXHD

We included TXHD in yesterday’s extended watchlist after picking it up on a routine premarket volume scan, and we ended up being extremely happy we did so, with the stock making the top gains out of anything else we mentioned for the day.

Right from the opening bell, it blasted off from a low of .0042 and rocketed to a high of .0094, giving nimble traders the chance at intraday gains of up to 124%

TXHD closed at .0075 having traded massive volume, maintaining a good portion of the ground it gained during the day, so we’ll be eager to continue tracking its movements.


InterCloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

We remained hot on the trail of ICLD after issuing reminders in our reports  on Thursday and Fridays that it had begun to rebound off of its 52-week lows.

Thursday we had witnessed a low of .0157, and in yesterday’s newsletter we commented on the rapidly rising RSI and strong close, and sure enough, the stock continued its solid run-up on the chart.

ICLD traded in a range from .0221 to .0324, a 47% intraday boost, and an overall increase of 106% over our observed low from three sessions prior.


Aurinia Pharmceuticals, Inc. AUPH

The last time we put a tag on AUPH was at the end of January, and at the time, the stock was trading around $3, briefly touching a low of 2.95.

What occurred during the month of February was a slow and steady increase peaking at just under $4, but as we’ve come into March, the PPS has been ramping up much more intensely.

Yesterday, AUPH broke out to a new high of 7.32, which marks an overall upswing of 148% in the span of roughly five weeks.


Bottom-Watchers

Both Function(x) Inc. FNCX and Ocera Therapeutics, Inc. OCRX are going to be on our radars as potential rebound plays. FNCX has a excellent looking , ripening chart, and OCRX is gapping up off its own bottom this morning.

Each of these NASDAQ-listed stocks are required to work toward getting their share prices back above the 1.00 minimum standard, or face de-listing.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NKE Review & More

NIKE, Inc. NKE – Options Update

Yesterday we brought a grouping of NKE options ideas to the table following a post-market options beat the previous day.

Despite the slow market conditions that are to be expected of a week leading into the year-end holidays, we felt that NKE was set to provide some opportunities, and we weren’t disappointed.

Our targets for “daytrades and/or swing trades” were the NKE Weekly $52.50-54 Calls and it appears as if both notions will turn out to be correct, with the stock looking like it could post another strong session today. As for the daytrades that were possible yesterday, we saw the most notable moves out of three sets of contracts in our highlighted range:

$52.50 Calls – Range: .15-.38 – Max Gain: 153%
$53 Calls – Range: .07-.21 – Max Gain: 200%
$29 Calls – Range: .03-.09 – Max Gain: 200%


ERF Wireless, Inc. ERFB

We want to provide a quick update on ERFB this morning, which we highlighted in last Friday’s premarket repot.  The stock saw a subsequent low of .0013 following that alert, and as of yesterday it had pushed as high as .0079.

That worked out to a 508% intraweek move up, so we want to say congrats to anyone who took this subpenny popper for a ride on the heels of last week’s tag.


Potential Bottom-Plays

We found a pair of stocks this morning that are both trading near their relative bottoms, with strong indications of impending rebounds on both of the charts.

Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IMMY
& Ideal Power, Inc. IPWR

In addition to a ripe-looking chart, IMMY has seen some insider buying of late. A recent Form-4 filing revealed a significant buy ($280K) from CEO Mark Baum, who, coincidentally enough, also serves on the board of IPWR. We’re going to keep both of these stocks on recovery watch in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MXSG Review & More

Mexus Gold US (MXSG)

Our first order of business this morning is to give a rundown of the recent performance of MXSG, which has made one heck of a run in the time we’ve been tracking it.

We initially placed this gold play on watch last February 5th when it was trading at .0016 , and the stock, quite incredibly has put together a roughly 10-month uptrend.

Some of the biggest strides have come recently, despite gold prices cratering to their lowest values in that same 10 month period of late. That didn’t stop MXSG from running to a new high of .235 yesterday, which marks a mind-numbing 14,587% increase over the low we observed on the very first time we mentioned the stock in February.

That definitely makes MXSG one of our biggest success stories of 2016, and that includes options trading! Congratulations to anyone who has taken part in such an incredible ride!


IFAN Financial, Inc. IFAN

IFAN is another play we’ve been tracking that has also made big moves for us. When we first brought it to the table on October 24th, it broke out for excellent gains on the order of nearly 400% as it ran from .0031-.0154.

Yesterday, the stock went for a double-bagger, trading in a daily range from .0016-.0033 (+106%). It will interesting to see if it can carry some of its generated momentum of the past couple of sessions into further price surges. Another run at the penny mark from this point would factor in potential gains of up to 200%


GoDaddy, Inc. GDDY

GoDaddy is moving in the wake of news that the company would be attempting to boost its web hosting business with the acquisition of Host Europe in a $1.82B deal (>>View PR).

While the stock is at a good place on the chart, and receiving some attention, we’re going to radar some options to monitor over the next several weeks, in the GDDY 01/20 $35-36 Calls.
