Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recent Winners


Recapping Recent Hot Picks

First thing’s first- we would like to include a quick update on two of the stocks to appear in our report yesterday, in which we had already witnessed very nice gains.  Both stock pressed to new highs during yesterday’s session, so we wanted to update readers on their continued success.

Tandem Diabetes Corp. TNDM  -  We called TNDM initially on April 11th, whereupon we observed a low of 6.62.  Yesterday the stock rose another 12% intraday, running from 10.75 to 12.05. That new high represents an 82% jump since our first alert, just over a month ago.

Stein Mart, Inc. SMRT – Also appearing in yesterday’s report for having put up impressive figures following our March 16th alert and subsequent observed low of 1.33, was SMRT. The stock reached a notable new high of 3.94. marking a two-month uptrend amounting to 196%



Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. RKDA

To come back to yet another great call we made last Tuesday (05/08), we’ve got RKDA. A couple of sessions following that first call, the stock would register a low of 7.31, and this week, we’re seeing the stock reaching new heights.

Yesterday it hit 12.25, which marks a rise of 67% in a matter of just six trading days. There is still a lot of room to the upside on the chart for RKDA to travel, so we’re definitely going to keep our eyes peeled for further bullish activity from RKDA.

Heat Biologics, Inc. HTBX

Speaking of charts with potential, we tagged HTBX on Monday, and it has been trending in the right direction, trading up from 1.35 to 1.74 so far. As you can see on the provided snapshot, it still has a very ripe-looking chart.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SYMC Bottom-Play & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We were very pleased with HEAR on Friday, mentioning the incredible 400% move the stock had made since our initial alert on April 9th, from a low of 2.76 to 13.88.

As it happened, the stock wasn’t done impressing us yet. HEAR made an excellent run on Friday from a daily low of 10.60 to its new high of 18.62. That’s an intraday move of 76%, and an enormous 575% increase over our observed low from last month.


Symantec, Inc. SYMC

We are always on the lookout for potential bottom plays, and Symantec is going to go on our watchlist as such a candidate as we kick off a new trading week.

A sweeping round of analyst downgrades from Piper Jaffray and others, effected a massive selloff in SYMC, and we’re already seeing a start to a rebound this morning with the stock gapping up roughly 5% in the premarket.

We’re going to keep an eye on SYMC Weekly $19.50-21.50 Calls as well, in the event that the stock continues to rebound.
