Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DRL, PLUG Earnings & More

Doral Financial Corp. DRL

Following yesterday morning’s mention of DRL and the opportunities it has sent our way over the past couple of months, the stock once again provided for us. This time, it came in the form of a classic dip-and-rip, making its way down to an early-morning low of 6.80 before spending the rest of the session on the rise. We saw shares changing hands at 7.68 just prior to the close, a modest yet solid intraday move of 13%

Estimates have DRL’s earnings release pegged for the end of next week, so it should be interesting to see how this play fares over the next handful of trading days.

Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR Update

PBR has fallen into a consolidation pattern over the past couple of sessions, and we are monitoring the chart for signs of a bottom. The stock crept below 15.50, its lowest price in a month.

We’d like to see PBR get back above the 50DMA of 15.68, but in the meantime, we’llĀ  need to see support hold above the 14.50-mark. Once we observe the telltale signs of another turnaround, we’ll be able to re-form our options trading strategies.

Plug Power, Inc. PLUG– Earnings Released

Our regular readers are well familiar with PLUG, a stock that has graced our reports dozens of times over the years, which we tracked over a mind-numbing range, .135-11.72, from early 2013 to March of this year. This morning will be a good time to turn our attention back to this hall-of-famer.

We want to keep an eye on PLUG in the wake of its earnings release early this morning. The stock is presently gapping up on the strength of record revenues, and looks to be gearing up for an interesting session. We’ve taken an excerpt from the PR, and provided a link to the full release below:

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $17.3 million, comprised of $12.6 million of product revenue, $4.4 million of service revenue and $0.3 million of research and development (R&D) contract revenue. This compares to total revenue of $7.5 million in the second quarter of 2013, which was comprised of $5.6 million of product revenue, $1.5 million of service revenue and $0.4 million of R&D contract revenue.
