Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Bouncers, Options & More


FXCM, Inc. FXCM
- Update

FXCM was part of the bottom-play watchlist we put together for yesterday’s premarket report, and as it turns out, we made a very timely alert on this play.

The stock did in fact begin the rebound for which we were on the lookout, trading in a daily range from 8.16 to 9.64. It represented a modest, yet notable intraday increase of 18% on more than three times its 3-month average volume. We’re going to continue monitoring FXCM for signs of a protracted resurgence.


Earthstone Energy, Inc. ESTE

Speaking of stocks trading at or near recent relative lows, we have another candidate to put on our watchlist for closer monitoring this morning. ESTE has been establishing a pattern of violent swings on the chart over the past several weeks, and recently fell off of a cliff from nearly $16 back at the end of May, to the $12-range this week.

The stock received another gut-punch yesterday as it gapped down considerably on news of an approximately $45M public offering of ESTE common stock at a price of 10.50/share (>>VIEW PR). The revelation wasn’t received well and ESTE tumbled further, to a new 52-week low.

That’s where we come in; we’re going to be keeping a close eye on ESTE in the sessions to come, not only because it is approaching heavily oversold territory on the strength index, but also due to the track record it’s built up for violent and rapid swings to the upside. We’ll be interested to track its activity into next week for the possibility of a bottom-bounce.


Lending Club Corp. LC

We also wanted to circle back around to LC this morning, a play we alerted off of its bottom on May 23rd and followed to respectable gains over the following few sessions.

After a consolidation that brought it back down close to our original alert price, the stock has strung together a few bullish sessions, and is now on the cusp of breaking past a point of previous resistance. If the stock can break through the channel between 5.07 and 5.42 (highlighted in blue), it will have a chance at filling the considerable gap on the chart.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CPXX Buyout & More

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPXX

Just under a couple of weeks ago, we chose to alert CPXX in our morning report from May 19th. The stock had been gaining significant ground in sessions prior to that, to the point we felt it warranted our attention.

It was a good thing we drew attention to it when we did, because what followed was a solid run-up from our observed low of 15.73 into the $18-range. This morning, our witnessed gains received yet another big boost, as a takeover has been announced that will see CPXX acquired by Jazz Pharmaceuticals for $1.5B, or, 30.25 a share.

As of this morning’s premarket high on CPXX, our observed PPS increase on the stock in a matter of just seven trading sessions has been extended to a very solid 95%


Lending Club Corp. LC

Speaking of extended gains from plays that we’ve been discussing recently, we also had LC put up a noteworthy performance on Friday that culminated in new highs for us since we began tracking the stock.

Just to refresh our readers’ memories, we called LC as a bottom-bounce candidate last Monday, at which time we observed a low of 4.19. Friday’s run carried it to a high of 5.10, marking an intraweek move of 22%

We’re going to want to continue to monitor its progress as the chart is still looking quite ripe for a continued uptrend. As you can see on the provided chart snapshot, we’ve got a steadily-strengthening RSI combined with a recent bullish MACD cross in addition to a significant gap on the chart that runs from the 5.50′s to the 6.70′s.


Cliffs Natural Resources, Inc. CLF

We’re also going to place a tag on CLF this morning. We like the recent activity and the look of the current chart. Like the aforementioned play, we’re faced with a number of bullish indicators that are urging us to keep CLF on our radars as we kick off a new trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BBEP Recap & Other Updates


Breitburn Energy Partners, Inc. BBEP – Another Update

After signaling BBEP in Thursday morning’s premarket report as a “Bankrupt Bottom-Bouncer” we witnessed a low of .055 followed by a 100% jump to a high of .11 on Friday.

As we were congratulating those who took advantage of the move in yesterday’s premarket report, we also mentioned that we’d remain interested in BBEP as long as it managed to maintain support above the .06-.065 range on any pullbacks. The stock achieved that feat right from the outset as it gapped up, opened at .078, and kept running.

We ultimately witnessed a trading range from that morning low of .078 up to a new high of .132. That represented an intraday upswing of 69% and a three-session swing of 140% over our observed low of .055 on Thurdsday.

We’ll continue to stay on the stock’s trail, watching for continued registering of higher lows and higher highs.


Terra Tech Corp. TRTC

When we began re-alerting and closely tracking an old favorite in TRTC toward the end of March, it was just coming off of a nice run-up that had followed a long period of mostly sideways trading.  Subsequent to that point we ended up clocking this play over an impressive range as it ran from a low of .2162-.7455; a 245% upswing in a period of just under three weeks.

Following that mega-move, the stock began to see a good deal of consolidation over the next few weeks. That came to an abrupt halt yesterday as the stock bounced off of a higher swing low at .2698 and managed a nice 30% increase. Now trading in the low-to-mid .30′s, we’re going to watch intently in coming sessions for the possibility of a protracted rebound.


 LendingClub Corp. LC 

We took an interest in LC yesterday, alerting the stock as a potential bottom-bouncer in our morning report. It had been coming off of being egregiously oversold, and setting higher lows off of its 52-week lows for the preceding few sessions.

We ended up seeing a modest intraday run of 9% from 4.19-4.58, but most importantly, the stock registered higher lows and higher highs over the prior session, and we’ll keep tracking it for a continuation of that pattern We’ve pointed out on the chart below, a significant one-dollar gap that could be filled if the stock maintains the present trend, as well as an impending bullish cross on the MACD.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Review, Fresh Plays & More

PLCE Options Recap

On Tuesday, we submitted our interest in PLCE Weekly $70-75 Calls for a quick mid-week strike, and what we got instead was a supremely strong performance that lasted the remainder of the week.

On Wednesday, contracts within our target range yielded gains from 112-315% On Thursday
possible profits were a bit more subdued yet still highly respectable, giving us chances at gains ranging from 30-100% on the day.

On Friday, our idea managed to offer up yet another solid performance. The $70 Calls ran 45% intraday from 3.19-4.64, while the $72.50′s scored a double-bag-plus gain for the third straight day, spiking from .90-2.18, a 142% swing.


Breitburn Energy Partners, Inc. BBEP – Update

In Thursday morning’s premarket report we signaled BBEP as a “Bankrupt Bottom-Bouncer” slating it for observation, and the tag came with excellent timing. Despite a recent Chapter 11 filing looming, we managed to catch it at a bottom and track it over an impressive gain. Observing a low of .055 Thursday, we watched as the stock subsequently ran to a high of .11 Friday for a perfect 100% session-over-session upswing.

BBEP closed at .07, and in order for us to remain interested in the play moving forward, we’re going to need to see it maintain support at or above the channel between .06-.065 on any pullbacks.


MyDx, Inc. MYDX

We’ve taken notice of a stock that is showing a confluence of several attractive features at the moment in MYDX. What we’ve got here is a play that qualifies as a low-float, low volume, bottom-bouncer, and it’s got an interesting back story to boot.

MYDX produced a strong bounce off of its recently-recorded 52-week low (.17 on 05/18-05/19) on Friday, after crumbling for a more than 50% loss since the beginning of last week, when it was trading around .40.  We’re going to want to keep an eye peeled for signs of a continued rebound as we kick off this new trading week.
