Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FL Earnings & More

Foot Locker, Inc. FL

The markets took a beating yesterday, and we appear to be headed for another generally bearish session. On a normal day, we’d look for post-earnings plays that had a beat and were gapping up in the premarket. Today, we were looking for an earnings miss and a stock on its way down, and FL fits the mold.

The company’s Q4 earnings disappointed on sales and guidance and it appears that, coupled with current market conditions, a play on some puts may yield quick strike opportunities today. We’re going to zero in on the FL 03/16 $45-41 Puts.



iPath S&P 500 VIX ST Futures (ETN) VXX

As we said, another turbulent day for the markets could be headed our way to finish out the week, so we’re going to want to keep mostly to the bearish side of the street.

Much as the SPY trades with the market, the VXX trades inversely to it. Instead of SPY puts, we’ll go with VXX calls today for another possible quick strike options idea. We’re looking at the VXX Weekly $47-49 Calls.

*Trading weekly options on a Friday should never be attempted unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge Day for MYO & More

Myomo, Inc. MYO

We were just mentioning yesterday to kick off the week, how our mention of MYO in Friday’s premarket report. and how it had run from 10.10 to 18.20 for an 80% move on big volume. We stated our ongoing interest in the stock, and even cautioned that a dip-and-rip formation could materialize early on before MYO went on to confirm its status as a multi-day runner.

We don’t own a crystal ball, but you might have had a hard time believing that yesterday. The stock behaved precisely as we suggested it may, pulling back slightly in the first 15 minutes of the session before embarking on a day-long bull run to new highs.

MYO dipped to 14.51 before ripping its way to 23.20, for an intraday push of 60% and a two-session swing from our observed low on Friday (10.10) amounting to 130% We can’t remember the last time we called a ten dollar stock and saw it record a double-bagger inside of two days, but it doesn’t happen very often for stocks trading at a high multiple. Cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!


ReWalk Robotics Ltd. RWLK

We also want to give ourselves a quick pat on the back for spotting RWLK  in the premarket yesterday and including it in our report. The stock had just begun to inch up on Friday, but yesterday its run realy kicked into gear.

RWLK ran from a low of 1.40-1.95 for a modest yet solid intraday pop of 39%, but that figure has been notably extended in the premarket this morning with a new high of 2.10, which pushes our observed range in under 24 hours to an even 50%

We’ll look for RWLK to establish higher highs and higher lows once again to confirm it as a multi-day runner and stay interested in tracking it moving forward.


Delcath Systems, Inc. DCTH

We also want to do a recap of DCTH, which we last mentioned at the beginning of last week on the 12th. Subsequent to that report, we observed as DCTH saw a low of .0413 the following day. Despite having a little trouble breaking through resistance in later sessions, yesterday did the trick as the stock hit .10, marking a move of 142% in the span of one trading week.


Enphase Energy, Inc. ENPH

ENPH has slowly but surely been making some headway in coming up off of its annual lows established in May, but this morning the stock is gapping considerably, into the ninety-cent range.

We want to place this stock on watch in the wake of what we believe to be the catalyst for this activity – an Edgar filing alluding to a “Master Licensing Agreement” the company granted to Flextronics Industrial, Ltd. (>>View 8-K)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LPCN Recap, LPDX & More

Lipocine, Inc. LPCN

LPCN served up an opportunity at some decent intraday gains after appearing on yesterday morning’s extended watchlist.

The stock played out a classic dip and rip scenario, falling to a morning low of 6.89 before surging back in the afternoon to a subsequent high of 8.42. That offered traders a chance at intraday gains of up to 22% on plenty of liquidity- the stock would trade 23.5X its 30-day average volume.

The productive session came on the heels of the company announcing favorable results from Phase-3 clinical testing of “LPCN 1021”, its oral treatment for low testosterone >>> VIEW PR


LipoScience, Inc. LPDX

LPDX is gapping up heavily in the premarket, and the interesting story behind it is one that we’re definitely going to want to give our close attention. Early this morning, the company announced that it was the subject of a buyout that would be executed at a share price of $5.25. Barely an hour later, another PR hit the LPDX newswire, concerning an investigation of the managerial board’s handling of the deal, and whether or not they have secured the best possible buyout price.

According to the investigative firm leading the case, “The $5.25 per share acquisition price is far less than where the stock has recently traded. In fact, on January 25, 2013, LipoScience stock opened for trading at $9.75 the day the Company sold 5.0 million shares of stock in its initial public stock offering.” >>> VIEW PR

The playing out of this scenario is going to be an interesting story moving forward, which is why we wanted to flag LPDX this morning, and fill everyone in on this morning’s happenings. The possibility that the investigation could lead to a potential restructuring of the buyout is enough to have us keep our ears to the tracks on this one for the foreseeable future.


Magnum Hunter Resources Corp. MHR

MHR is another morning gapper that we’re putting on our radars. This morning Magnum announced impressive throughput volumes on its “Eureka Hunter” gas gathering pipeline. According to the CEO, “increased capacity has resulted in a record day of approximately 316,500 MMBtu of natural gas”. >>> VIEW PR


Options Trading Idea: PBR Calls 

We’re interested in the PBR October 31st $15.50 Calls  last traded at 1.88. If we can see PBR make its way back to recent $20+ highs within a month, it could put us in position to see returns of up to 150-200% on those contracts.
