$18 Calls – Range: 1.00-2.60 – Max Gain: 160%

Fresh Ideas:

Microsoft Corp. MSFT Weekly $82-85 Calls*

Apple Inc. AAPL Weekly $157.50-160 Calls*

*Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s just about as risky as it gets.


ITUS Corp. ITUS

We’ve been tracking ITUS since September 21st, subsequent to which point we witnessed a really great move in the stock from 1.92-5.15 for gains of up to 168% over just a few sessions.

In the past few weeks ITUS has been under consolidation, but yesterday the stock came down and kissed the 50DMA before bouncing. It’s gapping up this morning in the premarket, so we’ll want to watch closely for it to hold the 200DMA of 2.19 on any pullbacks. If it can manage that, we like the chances of seeing what could be more sizable moves for the stock in coming sessions.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MNKD Recap & More

MannKind Corp. MNKD

We’ve been tracking MNKD pretty closely since April (saw a low of .6662 in May), and more recently, mentioned it in both Monday’s and yesterday’s premarket reports.

The intraweek swing made by the stock has been rather impressive, as it ran from a low of 2.01 on Monday to a new high of 6.51 yesterday. That works out to an increase of 224% Even readers who only caught yesterday’s alert still had a shot at gains of up to 80% (3.62-6.51).

Now’s a good time to mention our daily traders chats for the first time in awhile. These Skype-based live chats are open to any of our readers (Send contact request to “stocksumo”), and often provide added ideas over and above what we include in our daily premarket newsletters.

We signaled the MNKD Weekly $3.50 Calls and as you can see on the included snapshots, those subsequently ran from .40-2.80 for an intraday burst of 600%


Today we’ll want to keep an eye on the $5.00 and $5.50 Calls* in case MNKD wants to test that 6+ range again. We may also look to the 10/20 $5.50 and $6.00 Calls for possible swing trades in coming sessions.

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


Constellation Brands, Inc. STZ – Options Update

After a premarket earning beat and outlook hike. we alerted on a range of contracts in the STZ options chain yesterday morning. We were looking to the STZ 10/20 $210-220 Calls and all three produced notable moves on the day.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CAPR, VYGR, HMNY Recaps & More

Recent Big Winners

We have a large group of updates on previously called plays that we wanted to briefly swing back around and report performance information on this morning:

Voyager Therapeutics, Inc. VYGR – We alerted on VYGR on the 6th of September, witnessing a low of 12.33 and after finishing the rest of the month on a bullish streak, Friday brought a new high of 22.28. That’s a three week swing of 81%, which is fantastic for a stock in this price range.
______

Capricor Therapeutics, Inc. CAPR – We signaled our interest in CAPR later on in September,on the 20th. The following day we observed a low of 1.80, and like the above-mentioned play, it never looked back. Friday’s new high of 3.05, represented a 69% increase in just over a week’s time.
______

Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. HMNY – We’ve discussed this one quite a bit recently, also beginning on September 20th. That morning  we saw a low of 5.469, and once again, it has been nothing but bullish moves ever since. On Friday the stock hit 14.17, marking a fantastic move of 159% in a little over a week.


Blackberry Ltd. BBRY – Options Recap

We also wanted to provide the final figures on the BBRY options we signaled in Thursday’s premarket report, the BBRY Weekly $9.50 & $10 Calls.  Friday’s session brought new highs for both sets.

The final intraweek range on the $9.50 Calls ended up being from .37 to 1.81 for a gain of 389%, while the $10′s breached the ten-bagger mark with an extraordinary run of 1025% from .12-1.35. Even readers who just caught Friday morning’s mention of these plays could still have made single-session profits of up to 103% and 202%, respectively.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Day for TEUM & More

Pareteum, Inc. TEUM

After tagging TEUM in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, the stock went on to become the top story of the day for us. From the opening bell until shortly prior to lunch hour, the stock make a pretty impressive move from a low of .78 to a high of 1.73. That went down as an intraday push of 122% and it occurred on an incredible 200X the monthly average volume.

TEUM held more than half of its daily advance into the close, and with that kind of price action and liquidity, we’re defeintely going to want to continue to keep a watch over this play. The activity was catalyzed, at least in part, to the company’s declaration that it expects to beat Wall Street’s estimates in its upcoming release of quarterly financials.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

It was a week ago today, just as we were returning from the 4th of July break, that we were commenting on the activity of OPXA, which we had tracked over some pretty nice gains at the beginning of the holiday week.

After a couple of sessions consolidating off of those highs, OPXA geared up for another round this week, rebounding off of support at .633, and re-launching itself to a new high of 1.09 yesterday.  That’s a 72% swing on the rebound, which gives OPXA just the kind of volatility we’re always on the lookout for. It will remain on our radars for the time being.


CableClix (USA), Inc. CCLX

We’re going to put CCLX on watch as a news play this morning, after the company announced the launch of its online TV service aimed at ‘cord-cutters’. It’s a trendy space with a good story, and the stock itself qualifies as a potential bottom play. We’ll certainly want to keep a watch over CCLX moving forward.

CableClix (USA), Inc. (OTCPK:CCLX) is pioneering online TV evolution by designing the first ‘lean-back experience’ for online viewing. Lean-back – continuous delivery of TV broadcast, common for cable TV but not yet for online viewing – gives audiences more viewing time, delivered as uninterrupted play of highly personalized content.

Lean-back play solves the problem of audiences losing hours of viewing time just browsing through menus deciding what to watch next. CableClix’s research – with audiences as well as executives from major online platforms, studios and multi-channel networks – revealed a consistent issue across the video content landscape: usability.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VSTM, KTOV Recaps & More

Verastem, Inc. VSTM

With impressive new highs being printed yesterday we thought it was a good time to swing back around and recap the recent progress of a stock we’ve been tracking since early this spring. A quick look at the VSTM tag in our archives reveals that we began tracking this play with a mention in our premarket report on March 24th at which time the stock saw a low of 1.59 and never went any lower. That was followed by another reminder just a few weeks ago when the stock was trading in the 2.10′s.

Despite the usual fluctuations, the stock has been in an ascending wedge pattern on the chart from our initial highlight, generally trading in an upward direction and yesterday, hit new highs of 3.75. From our observed low of 1.59 that works out to a total increase of 142%  For those who may have only caught the most recent mention, gains of up to 95% were still attainable as of yesterday’s new high.



Kitov Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. KTOV

We included KTOV in yesterday morning’s premarket report after picking it up on our routine morning scan. The stock responded with a very nice daily performance.

From a low of 1.80 it ripped 100% to 2.70 for a perfect double-bagger, and it did so on extreme high volume on the order of 155X the monthly average. With that kind of price action and liquidity, we’ll be certain to keep close tabs on KTOV as we close out this holiday-shortened week.


ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (SVXY) – Options Idea

After some positive jobs numbers went out this morning, we want to signal a range of options in the SVXY, which is one of the funds we use as a market analog. A bullish session for the markets as a whole could spell some nice gain opportunities in the SVXY Weekly $152-154 Calls*.

*We don’t include mentions of weekly options contracts on a Friday without explicitly warning our readers every time. Trading weekly options at the end of the week is a highly risky proposition that should never be attempted by beginning or novice traders!
