Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Sector Heating Up Again

Cannabis Comments

We got head-faked a little bit in terms of the cannabis sector in the past year or so. Leading up to last fall, anything even remotely tied to marijuana was going through the roof, with seemingly no end in sight. Then a regime change in Washington led to the appointment of self-avowed cannabis hater Jeff Sessions to the head of the DOJ. That led to a considerable cooling of what was previously the hottest market sector.

That being said, it has been business as usual for companies operating in the space in places that have taken the step of ending prohibition. Growth is happening all around, and the investment community has taken notice. The cannabis sector is showing signs of heating up once again, so we want to return to some of the plays we’ve covered in the past and highlight a few that could stand to see some good moves in the days and weeks ahead.

Dewmar International, Inc. DEWM – We just signaled our interest in DEWM in Friday morning’s premarket report, and the stock made a solid two-session swing. From Friday’s low of .0108 to .0163 yesterday, marking a move of 51% We’ll want to continue to track its movements,particularly after this morning’s news.

DEWM announced today that it filed a provisional patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the treatment of lung cancer with cannabinoids, so that’s going to be another interesting storyline to follow with respect to DEWM.

Our targets are going to be the NFLX Weekly $172.50-180 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off a New Trading Week

Ocean Rig UDW Inc. ORIG

We’ve had ORIG on bottom-watch for just under a month now, as the stock was undergoing a consolidation that appeared unsustainable. It seemed just a matter of time before it began to rebound, so we were monitoring it for a signal and got one in a big way on Friday.

ORIG came off its newly-registered annual low of .12 and traded up as high as .237, a 98% rise which occurred on ten times the monthly average volume. More importantly, the stock managed to crack through its 50DMA at .19, and held above that mark with a closing price of .20.

We’re going to want to continue to track ORIG, looking for the registering of higher lows off of its recent bottom. The RSI is also screaming toward the power zone, so we’ll hope to see ORIG string together a multi-day run.


Camber Energy, Inc. CEI

Speaking of stocks that are gaining strength, CEI has been in a pretty convincing ascending wedge pattern recently, routinely recording higher highs and higher lows off of its annual lows established late June.

We’ve pointed out on the chart below where the next key areas of resistance are, so we’ll want to track CEI to see if it can maintain its current trajectory and make a run at those areas on the chart.

Our formulated ideas for the TWTR options chain from yesterday morning’s premarket report turned out to offer up some fantastic chances to profit. We spotted just the right conditions before market hours and pounced, designating the TWTR Weekly $15-16 Calls to be our targets.

It certainly wasn’t the first time we’ve used Twitter in this manner, and it probably won’t be the last. Regardless of which set of contracts was chosen, multi-bag, single-session gains were there for the taking:

$15 Calls – Range: .30-1.49 – Max Gain: 397%
$15.50 Calls – Range: .40-1.00 – Max Gain: 150%

FRESH Options Idea: UPS 05/05 $108-111 Calls


Akebia Therapeutics, Inc. AKBA

An honorable mention from yesterday’s report was AKBA, which we tagged for observation after noticing some abnormal premarket activity on our routine morning scan.

The stock traded in a respectable range from a low of 11.08 to as high as 13.94. That works out to an intraday move of 26% which came on massive volume of an astonishing 110X the 30-day average! It also managed to close holding roughly half of its daily increase at 12.50, so we’re definitely going to be on the lookout for continued activity in AKBA, which could include a dip-and-rip pattern at some point.


American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH

We tracked AMLH over some monstrous gains from the end of March, to earlier this month. The move took it from super-subpenny lows of .0003 to a high of .007 (+2233%), so we weren’t at all surprised to see a consolidation period follow over the next several sessions.

The stock did however find support and make a reversal off of the .0029 level beginning last week, and heading back up to its previous high of .007 yesterday, marking a 141% swing. We’ll look for the stock to break through that resistance at .007, which would effectively put AMLH into Blue Sky Breakout mode, and trading at its highest prices since the Fall of 2015.
