Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, MILL Recaps & More

Miller Energy Resources, Inc. MILL

More often than not, when highlighting a stock that has recently recorded a new 52-week low, we’ve had very good fortune- yesterday’s premarket tag of MILL was no exception. It had just registered its annual bottom on Tuesday, and it set us up to bear witness to quite a respectable rebound.

From a low of .26, MILL surged as high as .38, marking an intraday pop of 46% and it happened on just over six times the 3-month average trading volume.

The move came in conjunction with an interesting sequence of events-Tuesday the company announced its significant doubt of its ability to continue as a going concern, which is what brought it to a new 52-week low. We caught it on the news scanner yesterday with a more positive message, regarding the receipt of a $33M tax credit from the State of Alaska and a potential loophole on the company’s debt in the form of a possible loan.

From this point forward we’d suggest an added note of caution pertaining to MILL on account of these somewhat mixed signals. The company is still in danger of filing for bankruptcy, but for our purposes, it turned out to be a nice mid-week bottom-play.


NuGene International, Inc. NUGN

We also wanted to point to another PR that hit the wires yesterday on a stock that we’ve been monitoring this summer. Back on June 15th, we tagged NUGN for observation and watched as it ran from 2.67-3.88 (+47%).

This week, after pulling back to find support at a low of 2.55, NUGN is rebounding back past the $3 mark. We’re going to want to watch it into next week, especially after the exposure that it’s set to receive this weekend.

Per a PR released yesterday the world-famous Kathy Ireland, whose namesake products NUGN distributes, will be doing a special on Fox Business Network (Sunday, 5:30pm ET) and Bloomberg International (Sunday, 8:30am CET, 3:00pm HKT, and 10:30am CDT). It’s called Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® and it will introduce a new line of stem cell-based skincare products. >> VIEW PR


Options Recap

It may be hard for some of our newer subscribers to believe, but most of the options calls we made yesterday morning ended up yielding chances at double-bag gains! Our regular readers won’t be surprised at all, as we routinely formulate such opportunities for options daytrades.

FitBit, Inc. FIT

All of the FIT Options ideas we signaled (Weekly $45.50-48 Calls) yesterday gave us the chance for notable gains, with the most significant action coming from the $46-48′s.

The $46 Calls initially ran 192% from 1.06-3.10, then dipped to a low of .79 before rebounding to 1.85 for an added 134% swing. 

The $47′s first burst carried them from .96-2.24 (+133%) dipped to .45 closed at 1.20 (+166%)

$48 Calls went on a 93% run from .88-1.70, and pulled back to .40 before ripping back to .75 for a chance at an extra 87% gain.

Netflix, Inc. NFLX

Our ideas for NFLX Weekly $100-105 Calls are figuring to turn out quite nicely as well before the week is out.  In the image below we can see the closing prices on all of those contracts; with NFLX trading above $110 in the premarket, we expect to see all of those prices increased significantly as they’re pushed deeper into the money. We’ll be on the lookout for dip-and-rip scenarios for the remainder of the week and may consider rolling our strike prices up closer to the money, perhaps somewhere in the 107.14-111.43 range in the event the uptrend continues.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TBIO Review & More

Transgenomic, Inc. TBIO

TBIO was included in yesterday’s morning report, and the stock recorded a notable session with the help of a favorable press release. The stock started out from an early low of 1.58, and ran 29% to 2.04, dipped back to 1.77 before going on to hit its high of day at 2.11, an added 19% swing. Volume was immense, to the tune of more than nine times the 3-month average.

The news release from yesterday was pertaining to the company’s claim that they’ve developed the most comprehensive test to date for the diagnosis of Leukodystrophy, a disorder that has been notoriously difficult to diagnose; in many cases taking years. >>VIEW PR

There are a number of attractive features of the TBIO chart even after the considerable run it has enjoyed over the past few days- The strengthening RSI just broke the 50-line, and the MACD is gearing up for a bullish cross.


We’ll look for TBIO to continue registering higher lows, preferably above the 50DMA of 1.76, and for it to test resistance in the channel between yesterday’s high of 2.11 and the 200DMA of 2.15. TBIO certainly has a history of making breakout-type moves; twice this year the stock has traded for more than 3.50.


New Options Ideas

We’ve identified a couple of fresh options ideas to pass along to our readers this morning. For each of the following movers, we’ll be on the lookout for the occurrence of a dip-and-rip scenario Both stocks are gapping up here in the premarket.

FitBit, Inc. FIT

For FIT, we are going to monitor Weekly Calls (Friday Expiration) in the $45.50-48 range. We want to pay close attention to them the next couple of sessions as FIT has been establishing higher highs and higher lows on the chart. We’re watching for a dip from profit-taking, and subsequent rebound. If and when that happens, we should see some nice action in the range we highlighted.

Netflix, Inc. NFLX

As for NFLX, which has brought us serious options trading success in the past, we’re going to look for chances in Weekly Calls priced from $100-105. The stock just underwent a forward split, and there is some precedent for price increases following such an event (e.g. AAPL).

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APPG, RSH & OTIV Updates

Apptigo International, Inc. APPG

Our readers may recall that we tagged APPG as a potential bottom-play in Friday’s premarket report, as the stock was coming off its 52-week lows a couple of sessions prior.

We mentioned that we liked APPG “provided it can hold support above .365 in order to break the pattern of its recent downtrend”, and it did in fact maintain support above that level. We saw a daily range from .37-.43 which is equal to a 16% move, and the stock closed just a penny below its high-of-day.

We’ll be monitoring APPG as we kick off a new trading week, and looking for the stock to register higher lows and higher highs to confirm a sustained uptrend.


RadioShack Corp. RSH

Despite recent uncertainty caused by talk of possible bankruptcy proceedings, RSH did well on Friday. We’ve been tracking the stock heavily since the beginning of August, where we caught it at its 52-week low of .55.

Following a gradual incline to a high of 1.77, the stock has been under recent consolidation, and toward the end of last week we were looking for it to maintain support above its then-50DMA of .83, and it did just that.

On Friday it traded in a daily range from .86-1.00 (+16%), and closed at .91. Like the previously mentioned stock we’ll need to see RSH record higher lows and higher highs, and test its next key areas of resistance at 1.15 and 1.30.

It should go without saying that we’ll also want to keep our ear to the tracks for updates on RSH’s tenuous financial situation.


On Track Innovations Ltd. OTIV

OTIV made an appearance in Thursday’s newsletter on our extended watchlist. We saw the stock touch a low of 3.12 that morning, and then begin a gradual ascent spanning through Friday’s session as it went on to a subsequent high of 3.94 (+26%).

It’s going to remain high on watchlist today, as we’ve already seen trades in the premarket going off as high as 4.39. At that level, our total possible gain on this stock over the course of just a few sessions is expanded to 41%
