We also published a longer term options idea in our report on Tuesday morning, signaling the LOGI 02/15 $34 & $35 Calls for observation, and we’ve got an update on those plays as well, which have also turned into multi-bag runners this midweek.

The $34 Calls have thus far traded up from a low of .85 to a high of 2.40 for a gain of 182%, while the $35’s have gone from .55 to 1.65- an increase of 200% With three weeks remaining until expiration we can continue to keep an eye on these for the possibility of higher highs.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BLDV Recap & More

Blue Diamond Ventures, Inc. BLDV

After being discussed in our daily live trader’s chat on Thursday, BLDV went on a run from .0005-.0017, as we were mentioning in Friday’s morning report.

With another solid session to follow, BLDV became the second multi-day cannabis-related runner yielded by our chatroom in as many weeks (INMG being the other). The stock traded in a healthy range from .0016 to .0029, for an 81% intraday pop, which came with a massive surge in volume in the neighborhood of 9X the monthly average.

Those who did happen to catch the low following the chatroom alert on Thursday would have had the chance at carving out a large slice of a two-day swing that amounted to a whopping 480% That’s precisely why we’ve been routinely encouraging readers of our daily reports to get involved with our daily live chats.

The chats are open to any of our subscribers who wish to participate (or merely observe) and are conducted exclusively via Skype. Send a contact request to username ‘stocksumo‘ and get involved today! 


NanoSensors, Inc. NNSR

An honorable mention from Friday’s report was NNSR, which we had tagged in our extended watchlist. The stock made an appreciable intraday move from a low of .00695 to a high of a penny. That was good for a 44% pop, although the stock failed to maintain at least half of its gains into the close.

Still, we’ll continue to monitor this play as we kick off a new trading week, as it has the type of volatility that could easily facilitate another bullish push.


NoHo, Inc. DRNK

Continuing along, with the recent trend of super-subpenny movers, we’re taking a flier on DRNK which was showing an increase in volume last week on the heels of key announcement to hit press wires.

The pickup in activity seems to have been tied primarily to the announcement of a national sales and distribution agreement with BNG Enterprises, Inc. out of Tempe, Arizona (www.bngprodx.com). The agreement provides BNG the exclusive rights to sell the NOHO 2oz Shot throughout its nationwide retail stores as well as online sales through Amazon®.

Assuming that this super-subpenny will break into the subpenny range or higher like some of the similarly-priced stocks we’ve been tracking in recent weeks would be only speculation at this point. But we’ve seen enough triple-zero plays break out in such a short period, that we’ll definitely want to keep a close eye out for more opportunities like that, and DNRK could easily be the next one to go for a big ride.


International Business Machines Corp. IBM

We took notice of the IBM chart this morning, and would like to signal a set of extended-term options contracts for observation based on our perception of the stock. From a purely technical standpoint, IBM looks like it could have slighlty further to fall before making a convincing reversal, but indicators also suggest the stock is heavily oversold, so that change could happen at any time.

The stock showed a slight inclination to come up off of its lows last week, and there is also a pretty sizable gap to the upside to roughly the $170 area. We’re going to place the IBM 06/16 $165 Calls on watch as a result, and if IBM can make a move to return to $170 by the expiration date, these contracts could be in line for a double or even triple-bag move.
