Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CSOC, Options & More

Caduceus Software Systems Corp. CSOC

We want to bring CSOC into focus this morning on the heels of a filing that hit wires yesterday alluding to an interesting development at the company. (>>Read Filing)

We’re witnessing CSOC’s entry into the cannabis space, as they have announced their intent to provide SaaS (software as a service) to cannabis growers, and have also registered domain names to facilitate that. ( www.Inventory420.com and www.Inventory420.info)

We’ll be taking up regular monitoring of this play as part of our initiative to keep a close eye on the marijuana market, which just increased in size by a significant margin with the elections earlier this month. That will include keeping our ears to the tracks as we wait for further updates on its plans.


Options Ideas 

Itau Unibanco Holdings S.A. ITUB - In addition to reversing off of a recent relative bottom, ITUB is currently showing us a set of favorable-looking circumstances on the chart, as we’ve pointed out on the included snapshot.

We’re going to be tagging a couple of moderate to long-term contracts for this play, namely the ITUB 01/20 and 03/17 $11 Calls.

Tiffany & Co. TIF – Tiffany’s is also on our radar on the heels of its premarket earnings release which showed increases sales and revenues. We want to formulate a short-term idea for the TIF chain, as we’ve done quite successfully in the past.

Our focus here is going to be the TIF Weekly $80-83 Calls for possible daytrades and/or intraweek swing trades.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: OPTT, MSFT Recaps & More

Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. OPTT

It was June 16th when OPTT started appearing on our scans, and subsequent to that, we’ve witnessed the stock trading as low as 2.33.

The stock has really been ramping up the intensity in recent sessions, causing us to tag it on Monday (low of 5.72), and then again in yesterday’s report. OPTT had a really nice intraday performance in yesterday’s session, wherein traders could have banked up to 97% in gains as it ran from 7.94 to a new high of 15.65.

From our alert on Monday, that high represents an upswing of 174%, and from our overall observed low from last month, a PPS increase of 572%  For us to stay keen on OPTT moving forward, we’ll want to see it hold at Tuesday’s swing high of 9.87 on any forthcoming pullbacks.


Microsoft Corp. MSFT – Options Update

With MSFT’s recent aquisition of LNKD and an exciting earnings beat yesterday, MSFT was causing a buzz on the Street. We honed in on some corresponding options ideas for a potential daytrading opportunity, and it unsurprisingly turned out quite well in our favor.

The specific range we highlighted was the MSFT Weekly $54.50-56.50 Calls and the total possible gains on each were as follows:

$54.50 Calls – Range: 1.16-2.31 – Max Gain: 99%
$55 Calls – Range: .76-1.86 – Max Gain: 148%
$55.50 Calls – Range: .46-1.36 – Max Gain: 196%
$56 Calls – Range:  .24-.95 – Max Gain: 296%
$56.50 Calls – Range: .10-57 – Max Gain: 470%

We’ll continue to trail these contracts for the remainder of the week, as further opportunities may be present.

Fresh Options Idea:

QUALCOMM, Inc. QCOM – We’ve got an earnings beat causing this stock to move in the premarket, so we’re going to be monitoring the QCOM Weekly $58-61 Calls.


SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

We placed SPU on watch on Friday, and the stock has been gaining some excellent ground this week over our observed low of 4.00 from that morning. Yesterday it hit a high of 10.13, marking a move of 153%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Ideas & More

Options Ideas

JP Morgan Chase & Co. JPM 
- The first item on our agenda this morning is going to be to formulate an options trading idea for JP Morgan on the heels of the company’s earnings beat this morning, which has the stock gapping up here in the premarket.

We’re going to be zeroing in on the JPM Weekly $63.50-65.50 Calls for potential daytrades, and/or swing trades into tomorrow, depending on how the activity unfolds.

______

Seagate Technology Holdings, Inc. STX – STX has recently been making a nice move after a large gap-up earlier this week. In the premarket it is pressing past the 200DMA(30.20) and looks as if it could continue to truck higher and fill the gap on the chart to $33.

We have a couple corresponding options ideas that could be in line for some nice gains; for daytrading opportunities this week, the STX Weekly $30-31 Calls, and the STX 07/22 $30.50-31.50 Calls for potential swing trades into next week.



Updates on Recent Interests

SAExploration Holdings, Inc. SAEXLast week, we tagged SAEX as a bottom-watch play and after a few sessions of mostly sideways trading, the stock has finally begun to get some legs this week. The bottom, and our observed low, came in at .1385, and yesterday SAEX hit .298. That works out to a four session swing of 115%

______

Gold Resource Corp. GORO -  We’ve been tracking GORO closely since we entered it into the conversation at the end of June. At the time we had observed a PPS low of 3.19, and yesterday the stock continued to push its upper limits with a new high of 5.50. That represents an overall swing of 72% and a new 52-week high as well. Firmly in blue sky breakout territory, we’ll continue to keep an eye on GORO.

______

Lot78, Inc. LOTE – After tracking it to some nice gains last week, we saw LOTE pull back slightly yesterday, to a swing low of .016 before it rebounded 37% back to .022. We’ll look for the stock to retest our previously observed high of .03, the breaching of which would put this one into blue sky breakout mode as well!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RSH, KNDI, PBR & More

Some Recent Favorites on Bottom Watch

Each of the following stocks brought us large gains earlier this year, and have all been in recent consolidation patterns. They began to exhibit signs of a turnaround on Wednesday.  We want to have them all fresh in our minds in coming sessions as we scan for potential bounce-play opportunities that present themselves. 

Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. KNDI

We mentioned last Friday that we would be monitoring KNDI for a bottom this week, and began to witness it yesterday as the stock came down to hit 14.79 before snapping all the way back to 16.30, a 10% intraday move. We’ll be on the lookout for signs of continued recovery.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

PBR appeared to find its low at 17.06 yesterday, and began to rebound into the close at 17.38. As our readers already know, it’s the PBR options chain that has provided us with the most opportunities this year, so once we get a good indication that the bounceback will be sustained, we’ll get a better gauge of the most interesting contracts.

RadioShack Corp. RSH
RSH took a substantial dip to the .77-range to start the day yesterday in anticipation of a disappointing quarterly earnings call taking place at 9am this morning. There was a brief bounceback over a dollar and the stock did end the day back up in the lower .90′s. Rumor has it that there is a high probability of the company declaring bankruptcy, so while there is still a lot of uncertainty in the air, we’re just going to want to monitor RSH to hold support at or above the 50DMA of .83, otherwise we may want to prepare for further decline.


Others to Watch

We’ve got another pair of plays that carry some potential as we head into week’s end, ones that have yet to appear in our reports prior to today.

Wet Seal, Inc. WTSL

WTSL was a hit on a routine scan today; the stock is gapping up this morning. We’ve noticed a large gap to fill on the chart between .90 and 1.00, and trades are presently going off in the pre-market at .73, up over 7% already. The filling of that gap and returning to 1.00+ would mean sginificant gains from here so we’ll be watching this one closely.

Natural Health Trends Corp. NHTC

Yesterday we took notice of NHTC hitting its own low point on Tuesday, and the stock did actually see a significant bottom bounce to more than $17 before pulling back into the close to fall below $13. We’ll want to keep an eye peeled to see if we can use some of that volatility to our advantage.


Added Note:
Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU Calls

LULU is gapping up on an earnings beat this morning, so we’ll be looking for profit-taking to create a potential dip-and-rip scenario that could lead us to opportunities in the $41-$43 Calls.

SCOK, OTIV, AKS

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EVLI, KNDI, ADMD & More

Everlert, Inc. EVLI

We’ll continue to have an eye on EVLI into next week. The stock essentially traded sideways on relatively light volume during Thursday’s session, thus all of our observations of this play still remain true. A recovery pattern is in effect with EVLI as it reached 52-week lows five sessions ago, and has registered higher lows each day.

We’re going to be looking for EVLI to hold support at or above a nickel, while .07 is acting as resistance. A look at the chart still shows bullish indicators; the MACD which recently crossed is diverging sharply as the stock continues to trend off of its recent lows.


Kandi Technolgies Group, Inc. KNDI

We started off this short week with a note on KNDI, mentioning that it had been hit hard the previous Friday, and that we would be waiting for the dust to settle which has been occurring all week.

Currently the stock is holding support above $17, and this is going to be another one that we monitor into next week for potential rebound.


Advanced Medical Isotope Corp. ADMD

ADMD caught our eye after coming down to touch .0028 yesterday, one tick above  52-week low, and then rapidly snapping back to the .005 to .006-range.

We’ll want to be ready to take quick advantage of any further rebound chances the stock might offer up from here. It was trading over a penny as recently as the third week in August and the chart looks to be ripening.
