Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recent Winners


Recapping Recent Hot Picks

First thing’s first- we would like to include a quick update on two of the stocks to appear in our report yesterday, in which we had already witnessed very nice gains.  Both stock pressed to new highs during yesterday’s session, so we wanted to update readers on their continued success.

Tandem Diabetes Corp. TNDM  -  We called TNDM initially on April 11th, whereupon we observed a low of 6.62.  Yesterday the stock rose another 12% intraday, running from 10.75 to 12.05. That new high represents an 82% jump since our first alert, just over a month ago.

Stein Mart, Inc. SMRT – Also appearing in yesterday’s report for having put up impressive figures following our March 16th alert and subsequent observed low of 1.33, was SMRT. The stock reached a notable new high of 3.94. marking a two-month uptrend amounting to 196%



Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. RKDA

To come back to yet another great call we made last Tuesday (05/08), we’ve got RKDA. A couple of sessions following that first call, the stock would register a low of 7.31, and this week, we’re seeing the stock reaching new heights.

Yesterday it hit 12.25, which marks a rise of 67% in a matter of just six trading days. There is still a lot of room to the upside on the chart for RKDA to travel, so we’re definitely going to keep our eyes peeled for further bullish activity from RKDA.

Heat Biologics, Inc. HTBX

Speaking of charts with potential, we tagged HTBX on Monday, and it has been trending in the right direction, trading up from 1.35 to 1.74 so far. As you can see on the provided snapshot, it still has a very ripe-looking chart.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ALDX Review & More

Aldeyra Therapeutics, Inc. ALDX

The big standout from yesterday morning’s premarket report turned out to be ALDX, which initially drew our attention with an abnormal volume signal, and the release of positive Phase 2a study data for a Dry Eye Disease treatment.

The stock recorded a continuously bullish pattern throughout the day, trading in an impressive range. From it’s early morning low of 6.60, the stock reached a high of 11.05 just prior to the closing bell. That’s an increase 67% on the day, on more than twenty times the monthly average volume. It also easily took the top gainer spot on the NASDAQ board for the session.

ALDX increasing in value by two-thirds in a single session worked well for us yesterday, but such moves also rare and often unsustainable events. It’s difficult to imagine a scenario where the stock doesn’t undergo a consolidation in the session or sessions to come.


Macy’s, Inc. M – Options Review

We want to swing back around for a recap of the performance in a set of Macy’s calls we made a few weeks ago as a longer-term options idea. Typically, when a stock seems set for an extended rebound, we’ll signal contracts whose expiration doesn’t occur for a longer period of time. In this case we highlighted the

It worked out nicely, with M stock making a steady increase over these last few weeks that facilitated a move in those calls from .60-1.37, which comes out to a respectable gain of 128%

______

Fresh Idea:

We also look for quick strike chances as well, and may have one with Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. MRTX today after the stock soared following the presentation of positive cancer trial data at a conference in Chicago.

We’ll be looking for a dip-and-rip pattern off of this morning’s significant premarket gap-up, and will be tracking the MRTX Weekly $7.50 Calls* and possibly even the $10′s if it appears as if MRTX wants to break that ten dollar barrier.

*Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are A.) An expert trader and B.) Have money you can afford to lose. It’s an extremely risky proposition.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Retail Focus

Retail Focus

Macy’s, Inc. M - With the holiday season fast approaching, we’ll be on the lookout for retail plays with good upside potential, and Macy’s could be a good fit in that regard.

You can take a look at the chart below and see that the stock has just begun to show signs of a rebound after getting absolutely hammered earlier this month. Indicators suggest that the stock is rather oversold.

We’re going to radar a set of longer-term contracts, the M 11/17 $23 Calls, which should see a nice move if the stock can indeed regain the ground it’s lost over the past few weeks. There’s also a gap on the chart to the $28 area, the filling of which would propel those contracts to huge gains.


______

JC Penney Co. Inc. JCP - Another retailer we’ve talked about many times in the past, particularly leading up to and during the holidays, is JCP.

Similar to the above mentioned play, the stock took a punishing hit to its PPS over the past few weeks, and has shown the beginnings of a rebound. It has an even larger gap on the chart, and a chance to fill it even quicker.

The stock itself could end up being a good recovery play, but we’ll also want to put a couple sets of options contracts on watch as well, with the JCP 11/17 $4 and 4.50 Calls.


______

More Retail Ideas – Also in the retail sector, and each with premarket earnings beats, are American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO and Express, Inc. EXPR. We’re going to radar the AEO Weekly $12 & 12.50 Calls, and the EXPR 09/15 $6 & $7 Calls.


Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ZN

We also wanted to quickly update readers on the performance of ZN, after it was a topic of discussion in yesterday’s premarket report. While the stock didn’t break out by any means, it did trade from a low of 2.95 to a high of 3.42 for a modest 16% intraday move.

It did, however, manage to close just two cents below its high of day, so we’ll have it on continued watch this midweek, looking for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays & More

DISH Network Corp DISH

There’s a possible bottom-bounce opportunity brewing with DISH, with the stock posting its first bullish session after a string of five consecutive days of getting beaten to a pulp.

We want to signal a range of September calls that would stand to make considerable moves if the stock can mount an extended recovery. We like the volatility that DISH provides, and will be looking for it to test the 200DMA (61.38) while  tracking the DISH 09/08 $60-62.50 Calls over the days and weeks ahead.  .


Snap, Inc. SNAP

This is another stock that’s gotten beaten up recently, but instead of a handful of sessions, SNAP has been under consolidation for more than two months. In fact, the vast majority of the time since its IPO has been spent on the backslide.   It only recently began to record higher lows off of its newly established all-time low, and indicators on the chart suggest that a more convincing rebound could be in the cards.

We’ll want to pay close attention to the company’s post-market earnings call this afternoon, which could be a turning point in the early history of this relatively new stock.


Post-Earnings Gappers

We’re seeing premarket gap-ups for all three of the following stocks. We’re going to issue some options ideas for each chain to watch for day trades and or swing trades into tomorrow, depending on the activity we observe.  

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $22-24 Calls
Perrigo Co. plc PRGO – Weekly $73-75 Calls
Canada Goose Holdings, Inc. GOOS – Weekly $19-20.50 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Success, MNKD & More

Eleven BioTherapeutics, Inc. EBIO

Out of four focal points for yesterday morning’s premarket report, three of them worked out very nicely. From the stock side of things, we had EBIO, which we designated as a potential momentum play after noticing it picking up steam in prior sessions.

Our hunch was good, as the stock ran from a low of 2.31 to 2.955 (+28%) on roughly nine times its monthly average volume. It was a relatively modest gain, yet we did see a temporary breach of the 50DMA as well as a strong close at 2.78. It was a solid enough performance to warrant further observation.

______

MannKind Corp. MNKD - We drew attention to MNKD on Wednesday morning and just want to provide an update on its excellent progress so far. In the past two sessions since then it has traded up from a low of .44 to .68 (+55%) in two bullish sessions. We’ll be looking for a possible continuation of that trend.


Options Winners

The other two winners from yesterday were both successful options ideas that we formulated on the heels of strong earnings reports, and the gain opportunities there were quite a bit larger.

We’ve come to routinely expect huge multi-bag intraday runs when we hit on a good post-earnings idea, and that’s just what we got from every single contract we signaled.

Fresh Idea - Nvidia Corp. NVDA – Nvidia beat on earnings in a post-market release yesterday, and to correspond with the activity we’re observing here in the premarket, we want to highlight the NVDA Weekly $77-80 Calls* for potential daytrades.

*Our regular readers are well aware of the warnings we post every time we issue an alert, but for everyone just joining us, please be aware that trading options contracts with a weekly expiration on a Friday is a highly risky proposition, and should only be undertaken by expert traders!
