Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADIL Update

Adial Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ADIL

It has been an absolutely awful end to 2018, with a market bloodbath beginning roughly six weeks ago and amounting to perhaps the worst conditions we’ve seen in a decade. Despite that fact, with most big-board stock hovering at or near their annual lows, we have still managed to find a few plays that have bucked the trend.

One such stock is ADIL, which we signaled a couple weeks back on the morning of the 13th. That day, the stock was trading for as little as 2.55 a share. It has mainly experienced bullish activity even as everything around it has been going the opposite way. On Monday ADIL reached a new high of 5.75, marking a move of 125% in a span of two weeks.


Aemetis, Inc. AMTX

If you’re searching for a bottom play, you won’t have far to look in this market, as we just mentioned above. However, among all these bottom-feeding stocks we’ve got AMTX, which has a compelling reason to perhaps begin to recover some ground.

This morning, the company announced a huge round of non-toxic funding which is going to allow it to begin implementing a key element of its strategy in the New Year. We’re going to place AMTX on watch into 2019, especially with the company having a conference call scheduled for the second week in January. Things could get interesting between now and then thanks to this morning’s news.

CUPERTINO, CA, Dec. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Aemetis, Inc. (AMTX) announced today that its subsidiary, Aemetis Biogas LLC, closed a $30 million equity investment without any dilute stock issuance by Aemetis, Inc. and funded the first $8.3 million tranche to subsidiary Aemetis Biogas to build, own and operate dairy biomethane digesters, pipelines and gas cleanup/compression facilities primarily under 20-year agreements with dairy farms in California (>>View Full PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

UPDATES ON RECENT WINNERS

New Age Beverages, Inc. NBEV – Early last month, we caught NBEV before it went on a ride from 1.50 to 10.34, a gain of 589% but thanks to some excellent volatility, it wasn’t the last we’d hear from the stock. Following that, NBEV saw a pullback off of those highs to a low of 3.61 before retuirning to 8.95.

That works out to a 148% swing, and we’re going to be very interested to see if it can make another run and possible even surpass its previous swing high, mentioned above.
______

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGC – We caught the bottom on IGC very well, highlighting the play in our report on September 10th and seeing a subsequent low of 1.03. Yesterday, to kick off the fresh trading week the stock reached an impressive new high of 9.24. That registers as an excellent three-week upswing of 897%
______

Fate Therapeutics, Inc. FATE – Speaking of solid bottom-plays, we want to track back a little further to FATE, which we signaled for observation 8 weeks ago on August 1st. Following that report, the stock traded for as little as 9.001, and after a steady bullish incline for essentially the entire time between then and now, FATE has reached new highs at 16.9365, a highly respectable increase of 88%


Tesla Inc TSLA – Update

We also signaled the TSLA Weekly $300-310 Calls yesterday morning, and so far those ideas have worked out great. The single session gains available to traders on the day were as follows:

$300 Calls
– Range: 11.10-17.00 – Max Gain: 53%
$302.50 Calls – Range: 10.00-15.15 – Max Gain: 52%
$305 Calls – Range: 8.65-13.70 - Max Gain: 58%
$307.50 Calls – Range: 7.70-12.10 – Max Gain: 57%
$310 Calls – Range: 6.60-10.96 – Max Gain: 66%

Tesla is gapping up today and looks to be ready to push these contracts deep in the money, so we’ll expect to see these ranges and possible gains extended even further from here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT Recap & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

Our report yesterday morning included  a look at the VTVT chart, and establishing our interest in tracking it as a bottom play. Our timing in this really could not have been any better as the stock not only made it biggest single session move of the year, but also traded its highest volume.

VTVT ran from a low of .79 and reached as high as 1.67, a 53% intraday rip, and ended up closing at 1.19, filling a portion of the large gap which you can plainly see below. Based on the activity we’ve now witnessed, and the still-ripe look of the chart, we’re going to continue to keep a close watch over VTVT.


Van Eck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX)

We also want to begin tracking a pair of options contracts in the GDX chain. Gold has been doing well and looks as if another solid day could be in the cards.

On that event, there should be some nice activity in the GDX Weekly $22.50 & $23 Calls, so we’ll be monitoring for that.



Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. TNDM – Update

It was a week ago today that we were commenting on our coverage of TNDM in 2018. We caught this stock at a low of 2.14 earlier this year, and it has come a long way since then.

This week the stock has traded up to a high of 7.75, marking an increase of 262% since we began tracking it.
