Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ALQA Recap & More

Alliqua, Inc. ALQA

The big winner off our premarket watchlist in yesterday’s report turned out to be ALQA, which had a hard spike early in the session and continued to push more steadily upward over the course of the day leading to a strong close. The activity was fueled by the news that the FDA granted 510(k) clearance for ALQA’a SilverSeal Hydrogel wound dressing.

From its early low of .258 the stock traversed its way up to .45, which goes down as a 74% intraday gain. The move came on nearly forty times the monthly average volume on the stock, and as we just mentioned, it also closed with strength, just a penny below the high of day.

After hours trading also saw the stock achieve a high of .51, and it appears as if it could gap up slightly to start the day. We’ll be on the lookout for signs of a continued uptrend here as we head into this midweek.


Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL

Despite looming bankruptcy proceedings for UNXL, our bottom-feeder instincts have kicked in as the stock was punished down to a new all-time lows yesterday and is showing signs of a possible rebound this morning.

This NASDAQ could certainly be on its way to an OTC Markets listing in the future, being nowhere near the minimum bid requirements for the higher exchange. But for the time being, we’re only interested in its immediate situation. Over-abused stocks have had a historical tendency to produce some very nice moves for us as they correct course, so we’re going to place UNXL on watch in coming days.


Rimrock Gold Corp. RMRK

We also wanted to swing back around for a quick update on RMRK this morning. We placed this one on watch last Wednesday morning, catching it before it ran over 300% from .0006-.0025 that afternoon.

After a sharp pullback to .0008 over the ensuing few sessions, the stock  rebounded yesterday, returning to a high of .0019 which marks a 138% swing.

We’ll be watching for it to continue to register higher lows on any further pullbacks. Any stock with this kind of price action and volatility is one that we definitely want to keep a close eye on for more quick strike trade opportunities.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Potential Bottom-Plays & More


Potential Rebound Plays

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM  -We caught USRM for some nice gain opportunities a couple of weeks back. We had initially begun tracking this play after mentioning it on the morning of February 27th. Subsequent to that, we had witnessed an impressive run from a low of .014  to .0545, for a 289% gain in a span of just two sessions.

That was followed by an expected period of consolidation, but it appears as if USRM has found support at .0175. We’re going to want to return to monitoring this play more closely on the chance that it could be gearing up for another run. If it produced a move even a fraction of what we saw before, it will be worth its slot on our watchscreens.

______

Iconic Brands, Inc. ICNB – Speaking of familiar plays that could be in line for a rebound in upcoming sessions, we want to swing back around to ICNB this week. We had tracked this one to some decent gains after tagging it for observation on January 24th. Following that, the stock would trade in a range from .018 up to .0339, a respectable move of 88%

But like the above-mentioned stock, after its run, it basically underwent a big-time consolidation which lasted nearly a whole month. That brings us up to yesterday, when we noticed ICNB giving off something of a rebound signal. We’ll go back to watching more closely in the next few sessions.


Aralez Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ARLZ – Bottom Watcher

ARLZ has been falling off a cliff this week, and despite the fact that it may yet have further to fall, we’re going to want to begin monitoring it as it attempts to sniff out a solid support level. There could definitely be some opportunities waiting for traders that can properly time the recovery.



Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF  (JNUG) – Reminder

Apart from some quick chances for early gains yesterday, our freshly formulated options idea for JNUG may need some time to mature. That’s why we chose an expiration date a couple of weeks out. We’ll continue to have the JNUG 03/31 $7-8 Calls on our radars moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing IMMU, EBIO & More

Immunomedics, Inc. IMMU

We began tracking IMMU last month, mentioning it for the first time on May 13th, and then again in a followup on the 20th. Our timeliness in bringing what was already a steady climber to the table, as you can plainly see on the chart below.

It’s been a solid few weeks for the stock since that time. It has risen from our observed low of 3.59 to a new high of 5.44 yesterday, marking a solid 52% PPS increase in just a short time. We can also see that the volume has been steadily creeping up as well.

The last time the stock was this overbought, we saw a leveling out but not much of a consolidation. We’ll look for a similar phenomenon to occur from this point forward, and for IMMU to ultimately continue its general uptrend until we see evidence to the contrary.


Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Speaking of plays we called last month that have enjoyed extended moves up, we’ve also got on update on EBIO this morning. We tagged this stock for observation in the first week of May, and would catch it trading at a low of .80.

From there it’s been a fairly steady climb, and yesterday it too shot to new highs. As of yesterday’s top mark of 2.10, we’d witnessed a one-month rise of 163% as the stock temporarily cracked through the 200DMA. We’ll look for it to hold support at or above previous resistance in the 1.70 area on any pullbacks.


Fresh Options Idea

For a closing idea on this short week, we’ve taken notice of the chart on iShares Silver Trust SLV. It’s gapping up moderately in the premarket this morning after recently bouncing off of its lowest price in a couple of months.

Accordingly, today we’re going to look to possibly take advantage of the activity in the SLV $15-16 Weekly Calls* for intraday flip opportunities.

*Caution: As always, heed our caution with regard to trading options contracts with a weekly expiration on Friday. It’s something only to be attempted by advanced traders!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PLCE Options Recap & More

The Children’s Place, Inc. PLCE – Options Review

The first thing we want to mention this morning is the performance our running options idea for PLCE that we formulated earlier in the week. We continued to stay on the trail of PLCE Weekly $70-75 Calls in yesterday’s premarket report, even after they had provided us with chances at gains ranging from 112-315% in the prior session.

Despite the $75′s being a bit too far out of the money for any notable action, the other two contracts from within our target sets performed solidly once again.

The $70 Calls traded in a daily range from 2.85-3.70, which marked an intraday rise of 30% The $72.50′s fared even better, running from a low of .65 to a high of 1.30, marking an even 100% rip and the second consecutive session wherein the stock provided the opportunity at at least a double-bagger.


Immunomedics, Inc. IMMU

We tagged IMMU for observation on Friday of last week, and since that time the stock has made an appreciable swing to the upside. Our observed low on the stock is 3.59, which gave way to a new high of 4.25 yesterday. That represents a modest yet notable 18% increase.

We’ll want to continue to monitor the activity in this play which will hold our interest moving forward, provided it can maintain support at or above its previous resistance point of 4.00 on any pullbacks.

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., May 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Immunomedics, Inc. (Nasdaq:IMMU) today announced that the Scientific Program Committee of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has selected two of the Company’s abstracts for oral presentation at two Clinical Science Symposium Sessions during their 2016 Annual Meeting, scheduled for June 3-7, 2016 at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Global Equity International, Inc. GEQU

GEQU has proven to be a solid winner for us in the past. We recently re-tagged it at a perfect time on 11th of this month, just as it was coming off a bottom. We saw the stock  trading as low as .0123 yesterday it closed at a new high of .03, which goes down as a 144% swing.

We’ll keep our eyes on this one as well, in the event it can maintain support above the 200DMA of .0235.

The $70 Calls traded in an impressive range from a low of 2.25 on up 6.85 for an intraday gain of 204% The $75 Calls fared even better as they ran from .39 to 1.61, a single-session rip of 313% With performances like those, we’ll continue to track these contracts through to their expiration next week.
