Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BLNK, Bottom-Play & More

Blink Charging Co. BLNK

We signaled our interest in BLNK in yesterday morning’s premarket report via the Extended Watchlist, and we’re happy to report on what was a very productive first day of observation.

From a low of 4.34, BLNK made a highly respectable intraday run to 6.34, marking an intraday push of 46% Prior to Monday’s session, wherein the stock picked up in a big way, it had been trading sideways for quite some time. We will be interested in monitoring this play for the possibility of a more sustained uptrend in the days ahead.


Gogo. Inc. GOGO

We want to also bring some attention to the massive selloff which has occurred over the past three trading days. After trading for nearly $10/share, a disappointing earnings release and subsequent Moody’s downgrade has precipitated close to a 50% drop, leaving GOGO trading at just above $5.

We’re going to want to put this one on intensive bottom-watch, as we prepare for possible course correction leading to a bounce play opportunity.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Form-4 Alert & More

Snap, Inc. SNAP – Update

Even as the markets got crushed yet again yesterday despite it appearing as if the worst of the downturn was over, SNAP still managed to produce gains in our updated options trading targets.

It was in our premarket report yesterday that we were updating readers on the previous idea we had with the SNAP $16-17.50 Calls, which made moves ranging from 335-700% the day prior.

The stock had risen by such a large margin that we rolled up our potential strike prices to the $21-22.50 levels, and we got very nice activity out of half of those calls to keep our success with the SNAP options chain rolling.

The $21 Calls ran from .04-.32, for a fantastic 700% rip, while the 21.50′s made a 400% from .03-.15.

LendingClub Corp. LC

With turmoil in the markets persisting, this is a time when we want to stick to our technicals, and look for stocks that are currently boasting the type of chart setups we routinely scan for, and LC currently matches the profile.

The stock has come down to double-bottom with a gap to fill to the upside, as you can see on the included snapshot. We feel that over the next few weeks, LC could be in line for a solid recovery.

In addition to the stock itself, we’re going to radar a pair of options contracts to track over a more extended period of time, with the LC 03/16 $3.50 & $4 Calls.


Seattle Genetics, Inc. SGEN – Form-4 Alert

While we’re on the subject of bottom-plays, we’ve got SGEN hitting our scanner this morning. We’ll include a chart snapshot of this one as well, so you can see what we find so attractive about it. We’ve got a triple-bottom formation happening with the stock coming down to he $50-range, and a recent track record of the type of volatility we’re after.

To sweeten the pot, a major Form-4 buy came in the last week at $52, to the tune of $200M (View EDGAR Filing) in addition to a multi-program immuno-oncology collaboration with Pieris Pharmaceuticals announced this morning.

We’re going to track the SGEN 03-16 $50 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.

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.
