Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Chatroom Calls, Fresh Ideas & More

Chatroom Reminder

It had been awhile since we reminded our reader of our daily stock and options traders chats on Skype. They are a free and open forum for any of our readers to participate in, and a great way to get extra ideas that aren’t included in our morning reports.

Often the hottest plays don’t become apparent until just prior to, or just after the open, and those are the ones that you can catch in our chats, along with sharing ideas of your own.

DRUS was a big winner uncovered by DJ, a regular participant in the chats, yesterday just seconds into the session. Following DRUS being mentioned in the room, the stock ran from .0057-.0325, for whopping gains of 470%

As you can see, there were some SPY calls mentioned in the room as well, and those too did very well on the day. Both those, and DRUS appear to want to continue moving today as well.

As stated above, all of our subscribers are free to join in these chats, by simply sending a Skype contact request to username ‘stocksumo‘.

Fresh Options Idea:
We’ll also look to roll up strike prices and observe the SPY Weekly $272.50-274 Calls


South American Gold Corp. SAGD

What did make it into our premarket newsletters yesterday was SAGD, a stock whose company is about to make a shift into the cannabis space. While it didn’t begin to run just yet, we’re still very interested in the current setup of the chart.

We have posted a video chart going over why we believe SAGD is worthy of continued observation which we encourage you to view by clicking the graphic below:


UpperSolution.com URSL

Another honorable mention from yesterday’s premarket report is URSL, and it too is one we’ll want to continue to keep an eye on based on its setup on the chart.

We identified URSL as a potential bounce play yesterday, and the stock subsequently rebounded from a low of 1.70 to 2.27; a 34% swing. Further recovery could be in order so this one will remain on our radars into the holiday break.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MBRX Update & More

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. LL
LL is gapping up heavily in the premarket this morning, and we want to look to take advantage of the increased volatility.

With the stock trading up into the $30-range, we’re going to be looking for a possible dip and rip setup as the session kicks off. We’ll look for LL to come down off these premarket highs before ramping back up, and our targets are going to be the LL Weekly $27.50-29.50 Calls.


Moleculin Biotech, Inc. MBRX

A lot of our regular readers will remember the excellent run we witnessed in MBRX not too long ago, after signaling interest in the stock back on the morning of June 21st. It went on to run from .96 all the way up to 3.75, which was followed by a precipitous decline back to the 1.30′s.

We re-alerted on MBRX on July 18th as it began to cycle up for another run, and the upswing it has put together over the past couple of weeks has been nearly as impressive as the first major run. The stock has run from 1.83 back up to the 3.00-mark yesterday, so we’re really going to want to be on the lookout for it to test that previous swing high if it can continue on its bullish pattern.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DXTR, Options Recaps & More

Dextera Surgical, Inc. DXTR

Among our extended watchlist plays slated for observation in yesterday’s premarket report, was DXTR, a stock that we intially tagged on June 1st, and in which we witnessed a subsequent low of .1745. We included a second reminder on June 12th, and of course once again yesterday morning.

Yesterday the stock put up a fine intraday performance en route to setting new highs for us. From its daily low of .275, it ran as high as .3855, which comes out to a 40% jump. From our original low earlier this month, DXTR has risen 121% Volume over the past week has picked up considerably, and yesterday the stock traded more than five times its monthly average volume.

It also held more than half of its daily gains on that volume. In such instances, we always lookout for a continuation of momentum into the ensuing session.


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI – Options Idea

In the wake of a hearty earnings beat on DRI, whose chains include Olive Garden, Red Lobster and LongHorn Steakhouse among others, we focused on some options ideas, the DRI 07/21 $90-97.50 Calls.

While the moves weren’t quite on the level of many of our options calls, which often yield percentage gains in the hundreds and thousands, there’s still plenty of time before expiration and all the contracts in our observed range got off to a solid start.

$90 Calls – Range: 3.40-5.70 – Max Gain: 68%
$92.50 Calls – Range: 1.94-3.50 – Max Gain: 80%
$95 Calls – Range: 1.02-1.95 – Max Gain: 91%
$97.50 Calls – Range: .52-.94 – Max Gain: 81%

As we pointed out, these contracts don’t expire for a few weeks, so we’ll continue to keep an eye out for further activity in DRI.

Fresh Options Idea: Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. CBI Weekly $20-22 Calls


Sophiris Bio, Inc. SPHS – Update

We want to keep SPHS on watch as well. We tagged this as a bottom play on Monday, and it has since made a modest move from a low of 2.07 to 2.41. While it just works out to a nominal gain of 16% so far, we’ll remain interested for as long as it maintains its new trend of recording higher highs and higher lows as it has each day this week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OCRX Recap, Options & More

Ocera Therapeutics, Inc. OCRX

We noticed OCRX gapping up off of its bottom yesterday in the premarket, relaying that fact along to our readers in our morning report. The stock had a major gap to fill to the upside leading into yesterday’s session which we pointed out with a chart snapshot, and the excellent intraday run that ensued made some good headway in terms of filling a portion of that gap.

The stock traded in a range from .77 to 1.15 yesterday, for an intraday rise amounting to 49% and did so on immense volume to the tune of roughly 15X the 30-day average.

This morning in premarket trading we’re seeing another gap-up, trading as high as 1.37 so far. We’ll need to keep our eyes peeled right from the starting gun this morning as another bullish session could be forthcoming. We’re going to want to see yesterday’s closing value of 1.10 hold as support on any pullbacks in order to sustain our immediate interest.


e.l.f Beauty, Inc. ELF – Options Idea

We caught ELF on the heels of a strong earnings report wherein healthy beats on both earnings and revenues were announced. The stock is gapping up in premarket trading today, having breached the $30-mark with an early high of 30.99.

We always like a good post-earnings options idea so we’re going to formulate one that we can follow for the remainder of this week and into the next. We will be tracking the three sets of contracts in the range of ELF 03/17 $25-35 Calls over the next few sessions for potential quick strike trades.



Northern Dynasty Minerals. Ltd. NAK

We highlighted NAK in yesterday’s watchlist after noticing the stock had been trending steadily downward toward its 200DMA. We banked on the hunch that it would find support around that area, and were essentially spot-on in assuming a reversal was in the cards.

The stock underwent a classic dip-and-rip pattern, trading in a range from 1.08-1.34 for a modest intraday upswing of 24% While it didn’t blow our socks off on the first day, we still believe that serious upside potential exists for NAK from its current standing. All indicators are pointing to the strong possibility of this stock returning to the 2.00-level or better in the near future.

Additionally, a hike in the federal interest rates, which many expect as soon as this month, could have a positive impact on precious metal plays like this one, so it will be interesting to see what lays in store for NAK.

URRE, VTPI, CLNOD & Extended Watchlist

Uranium Resources, Inc. URRE

Our call on URRE yesterday bore fruit almost immediately, as the stock came out of the gate trading as low 4.46, before spiking to the high of day at 5.53 (+24%). For people who missed out on that first surge, there was yet another opportunity after lunchtime, where the stock pulled back to 4.80 before taking off again, running into the close at 5.321 (+11%).

Total intraday gains of 35% seem exceptional for a stock in this price range, especially when you consider the fact that it came on just over 25X it 3mo. average volume.

We also earned an appearance on the Penny Stock Rumble for our mention of URRE:

URRE appears to be gapping down this morning. Remember, the stock was already up significantly prior to appearing in our report, so we wouldn’t expect further gains without first seeing a consolidation.


Vital Products, Inc. VTPI

VTPI has hit our scanners as a possible reversal/bottom play. The stock has been beaten down recently, so we’re going to put it on our watchlist. If it can hold support at a penny, the chance for a bounce-play could present itself.


EQCO2, Inc. CLNOD
(Formerly Cleantech Transit, Inc. (CLNO)

We also wanted to point out that a stock we’ve been following since March, has undergone a forward split and name change, as highlighted in the PR below.

As Cleantech Transit, CLNO provided us some of the biggest gains we’ve ever seen, going from sub-penny prices all the way to .365. We will definitely continue to follow its activity after this change in direction and share structure.

LAS VEGAS, NV – (July 29, 2013) – CleanTech Transit, Inc. (CLNO) today announces that its name is now EQCO2, Inc. and the company will proceed with its five to one (5:1) forward stock split of its common shares. FINRA has finished processing the Company’s request for its new name and forward split to allow for the changes.

At the market opening on July 30, 2013, the Company’s common stock will begin trading on a post-split adjusted basis. The Company’s common stock will trade for 20 business days under the symbol “CLNOD” and then the Company’s trading symbol will revert to “CLNO.”

The change to EQCO2, Inc. was made to reflect the Company’s new direction, which is the offsetting, by equalizing/neutralizing, carbon dioxide emissions, so EQCO2.
