Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Beats & Bottom-Plays

Bottom-Bouncer Watchlist

Each of the following stocks qualifies as a bottom-bouncer, a couple of which are just coming off freshly-set annual lows. They’ll be reserved a place on our radar as the week comes to a close:

Organovo Holdings, Inc. ONVO – In recent weeks this stock has been under consolidation, and yesterday it found a new 52-week low of 3.99 before rebounding into the close in the low 4.40’s. This morning ONVO is gapping up into the 4.60’s. We’ll have our eyes on this stock, likely over the next few sessions as it attempts to recover off of its annual low.

Neuralstem, Inc. CUR – Following some ill-received news on its ALS drug currently under study yesterday, CUR absolutely fell off a cliff. It’s gapping up in the premarket, so we’re anxious to follow it today. Stocks that get blasted on knee-jerk reaction to news can often see a rapid recovery, so our interest is high in this case.

Endeavor Silver Corp. EXK – This stock is also coming off of a new 52-week low that it recorded on Wednesday. It managed to make higher highs and higher lows during yesterday’s session, and we’ll look for it to continue that trend moving forward.

Earnings Beat Watchlist – Options Ideas

The next pair of companies each had an earnings beat, and are both gapping up over 10% in premarket action this morning. What we’ll do is monitor for dip-and-rip scenarios, and take advantage of In-the-money Calls on the rebound:

El Pollo Loco Holdings, Inc.  LOCO – For this one, we want to radar Weekly $25-26.50 Calls for possible day-trading opportunities.

Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. ULTA – Here we’ll be observing the action in Weekly $154-155.50 Calls
