Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SYMC Bottom-Play & More

Turtle Beach Corp. HEAR

We were very pleased with HEAR on Friday, mentioning the incredible 400% move the stock had made since our initial alert on April 9th, from a low of 2.76 to 13.88.

As it happened, the stock wasn’t done impressing us yet. HEAR made an excellent run on Friday from a daily low of 10.60 to its new high of 18.62. That’s an intraday move of 76%, and an enormous 575% increase over our observed low from last month.

Symantec, Inc. SYMC

We are always on the lookout for potential bottom plays, and Symantec is going to go on our watchlist as such a candidate as we kick off a new trading week.

A sweeping round of analyst downgrades from Piper Jaffray and others, effected a massive selloff in SYMC, and we’re already seeing a start to a rebound this morning with the stock gapping up roughly 5% in the premarket.

We’re going to keep an eye on SYMC Weekly $19.50-21.50 Calls as well, in the event that the stock continues to rebound.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAPL Recap, MDCN News & More

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Recap

To start things off this week we want to look back to Friday’s report wherein we suggested that $131 and $132 Weekly Calls would be in play for possible daytrading opportunities, and our assertion was spot-on. The trading range on the $131 Calls was from .63-1.98, which was an overall spike of 214%, while the $132′s jumped from .14 to 1.00; a total increase of 614%

Those ranges, while extremely impressive, only reflect a fraction of the total possible gains for folks with daytrading ability. As you can see on the following chart snapshots of Friday’s intraday activity, these AAPL Calls were both what we commonly refer to as a “Flipper’s Dream”. Not one, but three big swings could have provided major ammunition for top-shelf profits.

Medican Enterprises, Inc. MDCN

MDCN is a marijuana-related stock that we’ve tracked in the past that has cropped up with a noteworthy PR this morning that we think our readers ought to check out.

Additionally, following a huge a huge run in late March, the stock has been under serious consolidation so it also qualifies as a potential bottom play as well. This will definitely be one to keep on our radars this week.

More News Plays
Here are a couple morning gappers with hefty PRs hitting the wires today:

IntelliPharmaCeutics International, Inc. IPCI

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recap of Yesterday’s Huge Session

Our first order of business today will be to go over the wealth of premium gain opportunities contained in yesterday’s premarket report. We had not one, but three of our selections make major moves, not to mention a couple of other modest gainers.

Prima BioMed, Ltd. PBMD

Quickly shooting to the top of our watchlist was PBMD. Its performance was exhilarating to behold as the stock went on an absolute tear from a low of 2.08 on up to 6.48. It marked an epic intraday run which produced total possible gains on the order of 211%

The move occurred on monstrous volume to the tune of nearly 62X the 3-month average, and stemmed largely from some positive results on one of the company’s trial drugs, announced Tuesday. >> READ PR

With the kind of momentum we’ve witnessed building up in just a single session from PBMD, we’re very interested to continue to follow the price action. A significant dip-and-rip scenario could soon present itself.

IsoRay, Inc. ISR

We also tagged ISR in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and it too shot up rapidly with the help of optimistic results from one of its own drug trials. From an early low of 1.86, the stock ran up as high as 3.38, carving out an intraday rip of 82%

This morning, we saw ISR go as high as 4.00 in premarket trading, extending the overnight range on this play to an eyebrow-raising 115%

We’ll certainly be monitoring this stock as we cruise into week’s end. Like PBMD, we’ll be on the lookout for profit-taking to possibly put a dip-and-rip scenario into effect.

Holiday Island Holdings, Inc. HIHI

In our closing thought from yesterday’s report, we called attention to a massive one-third share reduction being enacted by HIHI, and were extremely pleased to have done so. From a low of .0015, the stock broke out to hit .00265; a healthy move totaling 76%

We then saw it pull back into the close, but we’re not finished monitoring the stock by any means. We caught wind of a promotion (in which we are not involved) going out on HIHI this morning, which could provide us with an impeccably-timed boost to extend our profits as we look to take them off the table.

In light of the monumental performances we’ve seen out of news-fueled pharma plays this week, we’ve dug up a few more this morning for us to pin to our watchlists:

Calithera Biosciences, Inc. CALA

Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ATNM

Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AMPE

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PZOO News & Other Updates

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We directed our attention at PZOO to start off the week, and so far the stock has put on a good performance. From a low of a penny on Monday we saw a nice move up, and yesterday the stock continued to build a higher base of support.

We witnessed a trading range from .0131 to .0144, a modest 10% intraday move; from our observed low on Monday, that’s registered as a nice 44% intraweek swing.

We’re going to need to keep our eye on PZOO as the week progresses, especially in light of the important news update we received from the company this morning regarding its ongoing expansion into the marijuana testing business (excerpt below).

WHIPPANY, N.J., May 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pazoo, Inc. (OTC:PZOO), is pleased to announce that wholly-owned subsidiary Harris Lee has gained the exclusive right to operate testing laboratories in the State of Colorado utilizing Steep Hill Labs’ highly-rated testing techniques and methodology.

Colorado is the third state in which Pazoo Inc. subsidiaries have created a license relationship with Steep Hill for their testing technology. Agreements have been established with Steep Hill in Nevada, Oregon and now Colorado. >> FULL PR

PlasmaTech Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. PTBI

PTBI is another call we made on Monday which has also returned a noteworthy two-day performance. It’s one that we had already tracked  over an impressive range earlier this month, and when we rehashed it on Monday, we observed a low of 8.05.

Yesterday the stock pushed its way to a high of 10.83, marking a 35% swing. We want to continue to keep a keen eye on PTBI; this morning’s PR alludes to the granting of Orphan Drug status to a couple of the company’s products by the FDA:


DRNK also appeared in yesterday’s premarket report, and we wanted to mention the activity that ensued. After gapping up in the morning, the stock executed a dip-and-rip pattern, coming down to bounce off of a low of .0054 before running back to .0076, providing a chance at up to 41% in intraday gains.

Enviro-Serv, Inc. EVSV

We mentioned EVSV along with MNKD yesterday, and it too made a strong move on the day. From .001 the stock found a subsequent high of .0015 for a nice, round, 50% pop.

Side Note:

We’re going to have an eye on HIHI as well today on the heel of some share reduction news. The company is reducing the outstanding shares by nearly a third, so we’ll be interested to follow the resulting price action. >> VIEW PR
