Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

First we’d like to apologize for our email list members for the absence of yesterday’s premarket report. Our service provider was shut down for the most of the day rendering us unable to send our daily report via email. This is an exceedingly rare event, but in these cases, you can always bookmark and visit BlueHorseshoeStocks.com just before market open, as all of our newsletters are archived there for easy reference.

Alcobra Ltd. ADHD

We did include ADHD in yesterday’s report, but since many of readers happened to miss it, we’ll back up to the next most recent mention, when we alerted the stock on September 29th.

The stock did see sub-1.00 prices that day, but took a couple more sessions to see its low of .96. Since then ADHD has been on a steady run-up, culminating in a new high of 2.17, which represented a very nice 127% move in a three week period.


PayPal Holdings, Inc. PYPL

We want to highlight a range of options for PYPL after the company posted its quarterly earnings after market close yesterday. The stock has been on a nearly continual rise all year long, and in premarket trading today, PYPL shares have rocketed into blue skies, setting a new annual high with each uptick.

As we often do in these post-earnings beat gap-up situations, we’ll identify a set of options contracts in the PYPL chain to observe as things kick off this morning, in this case, the PYPL Weekly $71-72.50 Calls* for potential quick strike trades today.

*Important: Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s extremely risky.



AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ACRX

ACRX recently fell off a cliff after the FDA rejected the company’s NDA for its Dsuvia drug, however ACRX believes it can meet the accompanying guidelines to eventually submit a successful application. We did alert that event in last Friday’s report, and meanwhile, the stock is gapping up this morning after having seen and bounced off of new annual lows yesterday. 

Recovering even a fraction of the ground it lost last week, could spell significant upswings for ACRX in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INFI Review & More

Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. INFI

The stock with the most notable performance from yesterday morning’s watchlist was definitely INFI, which began trending up in the premarket, and continued its climb throughout the entire session.

The stock traded up from a low of 2.44 to 3.75, which works out to an intraday rise of 54% and it came on roughly 38X its monthly average volume. An early pullback from profit taking this morning would be a likely scenario, but if INFI can find support at a higher point than yesterday’s low, from



AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ACRX

After the FDA’s rejecion of the company’s ‘Dsuvia” opioid painkiller, ACRX took a monstrous pounding yesterday down to its lowest price in three months.

As you can see on the chart, it fell all the way down to an area of support it had established back in July. We’ll be interested to monitor this play for a bottom, which could come at any time. Moves generated by FDA news, whether positive or negative, tend to be over-exaggerated and are almost always followed by a course correction.


Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corp ITEK

Here we have an example of being extremely ‘early to the party’ as we sometimes say. We alerted on ITEK back in July, after which point it saw a low of .89. It mostly traded sideways throughout the remainder of the summer, but recently began quite an impressive climb.

This morning, the stock hit news highs of 4.15 in premarket trading on news of a proposed merger with a clinical stage gene therapy company. It may have took a few months to realize, but it works out to an increase of 366%

For an added angle going forward, we’ll also signal the ITEK 10/20 $2.50 Calls for possible daytrades and/or swing trades into next week, and the 11/17 $2.50 & $5.00 Calls for a longer term idea.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CASI, BYOC, HMNY Recaps

Beyond Commerce, Inc. BYOC

It was the morning of September 25th that we tagged BYOC for observation and it has essentially undergone a continual uptrend over that time period.

That morning we witnessed a low of .0035 in the stock and as of yesterday’s new high reached just prior to the close, was .0189. That amounts to a very impressive boost of 440% over a time span of just 13 trading days.


CASI Pharceuticals, Inc. CASI

We placed CASI on watch in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and wanted to come back this morning to talk about its performance. The stock ran extremely hard out of the starting gate and attainted its high within the first half hour of trading.

Despite failing to maintain its gains into the close, the run it made was impressive nonetheless. CASI’s low came in at 2.82 and it reached as high as 4.84, for an intraday pop of 92%


Helios & Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We also want to take a final look at the overall move HMNY has made for us. It appears as if its epic run is over but it brought with it one of the biggest, fastest moves we’ve ever seen in a stock in its price range.

From our observed low of 5.47 subsequent to our alert on the stock on September 20th, to yesterday’s mind-bending high of 38.86, represents a rise of 610% Congratulations to anyone who was able to take this one for a ride.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: KMX Recap & More

CarMax, Inc. KMX 

First up this morning, we’re going to start off the fresh trading week by reviewing the performance of the CarMax options we signaled in Friday’s premarket report on the heels of the company’s Q2 earnings beat.

We’re constantly pounding the table on post-earning options trading, simply because we are so very often successful in our selections. Volatility is a swing trader’s best friend, and few things create it more quickly and effectively than a solid beat on earnings.

So we signaled our interest in tracking the KMX Weekly $69.50-71.50 Calls and it worked like a charm:

$69.50 Calls - Range: 1.21-4.96 – Max Gain: 310%
$70 Calls – Range: 1.10-4.40 – Max Gain: 300%
$70.50 Calls – Range: .55-3.78 – Max Gain: 587%
$71 Calls – Range: .35-3.50 – Max Gain: 900%
$71.50 Calls – Range: .30-2.41 – Max Gain: 703%



Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. HMNY

We just updated our readers on our coverage of HMNY last Wednesday, when we pointed out that we slated the stock for tracking on August 15th and observed a subsequent low of 2.42. By midweek the stock had already made a considerable move up, but Friday’s session brought another big pop to new highs.

HMNY traded in a daily range from 5.67 to 7.95 gaining 40%, a very respectable intraday move in and of itself. The new high marked an overall move of 229% from our observed low.

Volume was much higher than average all last week, and the stock maintain roughly half of its daily advance into a fairly strong close, so we’ll need to keep monitoring HMNY for the continued establishment of higher highs and higher lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: UNXL Recap & More


Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL

Our premarket report yesterday morning may have left some of our newer readers wondering why we would put forth a stock that had just been crushed to new all-time lows amid forthcoming bankruptcy and the layoff of its entire workforce. Our more seasoned readers will recall many times in the past where just such a set of circumstances has allowed for big opportunities, and yesterday was no exception.

UNXL began its rebound immediately following the opening bell, and in the first 90 minutes of trading, shot up from a low of .07 to as much as .16. That worked out to an intraday rip of 128% which occurred on massive volume on the order of nearly forty times the monthly average.

It just goes to show why we are constantly scanning for stocks coming off of their 52-week lows, because quite often they become fantastic rebound plays just like UNXL did yesterday. In fact, it ended up being the NASDAQ’s biggest gainer of the day, so cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!


Coty, Inc. COTY

We like the setup of the current COTY chart and would like to signal a pair of options contracts for observation in the days and weeks ahead.

Here we have another stock that was battered down in rapid fashion, having been trading over $20/share as recently as the beginning of this month. That includes a large gap left on the chart. It reached it ultimate low on Thursday, and since then has shown signs of a possible extended recovery, not to mention some insider buying.

On that note, we’re going to be looking to the COTY 10/06 $17 & $17.50 Calls  for potential swing trades in the days and weeks to come.
