Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPHS, OPXA, PPCH Highlights

Sophiris Bio, Inc. SPHS

SPHS was the first mention from yesterday’s morning report to grab our attention with an early surge that provided the chance at a rapid, substantial gain. From the low-of-day at 1.02, the stock made a big move to 1.64; an increase of 60% inside of the first half-hour of the session. The bulk of the day’s volume, which came in at more than 18X the three-month average, traded in that short time-span as well.

In addition to the heavy volume, making its biggest moves early in the trading day seems to be an established pattern with SPHS, so we’ll have an eye peeled as the session commences today.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

The other standout from yesterday’s report was OPXA, which spiked on word of coverage initiation by large investment banking and research firm, Maxim Group. (>>View PR)

From its daily low of .43, the stock stair-stepped its way up throughout the session and eventually hit a high of .54; an intraday gain of 26% As it appears to gapping up in the premarket and has already touched .58, the total increase we’ve seen gets pushed to 35% We’ll be interested to follow the impending activity as well as check out the CEO’s presentation which we detail below.

Per a news release from last week, “Neil K. Warma, President and Chief Executive Officer, will present at the 2015 Marcum Microcap Conference on Thursday, May 28, 2015, at 11:30 a.m. EDT in the Plymouth Room.

A live webcast of the company presentation can be accessed here, or via the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at www.opexatherapeutics.com.


Propanc Health Group Corp. PPCH

PPCH is a stock that we began tracking in the second week of March, and over the period of several weeks since that time the stock has made some truly epic moves. Subsequent to our tag of PPCH on March 18th, we observed a low of .0116, followed by an impressive run up to an even dime. That 762% mega-run was followed by a tapering back to a low of .021.

Yesterday the stock soared almost all the way back to its previous high, touching .094, which marks another swing of 348% that we;ve seen from this incredible mover. If the stock can breach that previous swing-high, it’ll be off to the races, so we’ll definitely keep PPCH an item of interest moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PZOO Recap & More

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

Our timing in re-alerting our readers to PZOO’s prime positioning in yesterday’s premarket report was absolutely spot-on. The stock had finally found and bounced off of a solid level of support in the prior session, and yesterday’s trading range provided a great chance for traders to make a solid buck.

From an early low of a penny, the needle was pointing up all day as PZOO ran into the end of the session, hitting .0136 for an intraday gain of 36% The stock closed just two ticks below its high of day (.0134) and logged a trading volume of nearly double the 3-month average.

Anytime we see a momentous daily performance like that, we’re always on the lookout for residual gains in following sessions.

We also want to remind our readers that today is the start of the a 4th Annual Marijuana Business Conference and Expo in Chicago, at which PZOO has secured a booth. It’s currently the country’s largest cannabis trade show, and runs from today through Thursday, with most of the activities kicking off tomorrow..

*We know that we have quite a few subscribers in the Greater Chicagoland Area, so we’d suggest going over to the conference at the Chicago Hilton to visit with Pazoo’s reps. The first 200 people to stop at the booth will receive a free custom t-shirt. >> Official PR


Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

We re-tagged PLUG, an old favorite, in our morning report from a week ago today. At the time, we saw a marginal gain from 2.48-2.73, and after spending another few sessions under an overall consolidation, PLUG found support yesterday at 2.53 where it began to rebound. In the premarket today the stock has traded as high 2.80.

We’re going to extend an options idea for PLUG that is significantly long-term; the September 18th $3.00 Calls (Last Traded: .19) could be in line to provide us with a solid opportunity/opportunities in the weeks and months ahead.


OraSure Technologies, Inc. OSUR

We also wanted to remind our readers of another timely alert we entered into the mix in yesterday’s report. OSUR traded in a range from 6.40 to 7.59, a respectable 19% increase.

Today the stock has surpassed that high in the premarket, running as high as 8.00, which extends the total overnight gain we’ve seen so far to 25% We’re going be watching for OSUR to possibly continue this run on the heel of some joint press with Walgreens this morning.


Potential Momentum Plays

Here we’ve got a couple of ‘momo-plays’ (one of which with a fresh PR out this morning) that we’re going to be keeping an eye on today:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing Friday’s Picks & More

Recapping Friday’s Options Ideas

We made it a point to pass along a handful of quick-strike options ideas on Friday. We mentioned the high-risk, high-reward nature of trading weekly contracts on a Friday, and we certainly were rewarded as every single idea we formulated bore fruit, to varying degrees.

Here’s a breakdown of the prime possibilities for profit that we observed:

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – The rather broad range we provided for NFLX were Weekly $595-612.50 Calls, and every set of contracts in that range made highly impressive moves:

$595 Calls - Daily Range: 6.58-23.00 – Max Gain: 250%
$597.50 Calls - Daily Range: 5.30-20.67 – Max Gain: 290%
$600 Calls - Daily Range: 3.63-18.02 – Max Gain: 396%
$602.50 Calls - Daily Range: 2.80-15.45 – Max Gain: 452%
$605 Calls – Daily Range: 1.10-12.82 – Max Gain: 1065%
$607.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.00-10.62  – Max Gain: 962%
$610 Calls – Daily Range: .80-8.17 – Max Gain: 921%
$612.50 Calls – Daily Range: .53-5.54 – Max Gain: 945%

____

Apple, Inc. AAPL - Our idea for AAPL was the Weekly $128 and $129 Calls, and a relatively volatile outing brought several significant swing-trade opportunities in each:

$128 Calls started out by first trading from an early low of 1.06 to 1.58 (+49%). It then pulled back to find support at .53 before taking off again to hit .99 (+86%). That swing was followed another ranging from .43-.92 (114%), and then by a final dip to .53 and run back to .81 (+53).

$129 Calls traded with similar action; four distinct swings of  53%, 134%, 167% and 300% occurred during the session.
____

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – The PBR Weekly $10 Calls that we tagged for observation made a monster move from .03-.20, yielding the chance at gains of up to 566%

The stock is gapping up in the premarket today, so we’re going to continue keep our eyes on PBR. Our interest to start out the week will be in the Weekly $10 and 10.50 Calls for potential daytrade swing-trade opportunities.

____

Huge congratulations go out to any of our followers that were able to bank some hefty gains off of Friday’s excellent options ideas!


Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We’re touching base with PZOO this morning to update our readers on what the stock has been up to lately. Many of you will recall the monumental April this stock had; we initiated coverage on April 1st, and PZOO essentially spent the entire month on an uptrend. The total range we observed over the course of the month went from .0049 to .0204, which amounted to an epic 316% swing.

We put the stock on the back burner this month as it consolidated off of those impressive highs, and we want to rehash our interest in this play now that it appears to be headed toward its next leg-up. We’d also suggest that folks check out the PR released by the company on Friday, which alludes to its partner’s ribbon-cutting on the Nevada medical marijuana testing facility that we’ve been anticipating.

We’ve prepared a video outlining the key aspects of the PZOO Chart:

MagneGas Corp. MNGA

We also want to pat ourselves on the back for a timely call of MNGA on Friday. We caught the news release highlighting the company’s contract with the US Navy, and it was enough to send the stock on a respectable intraday rip.

MNGA traded in a daily range from 1.08-1.48, which represented a healthy increase of 37% The move occurred on over 17X the 3-month average trading volume, and the stock closed just under the high of day, so we’ll be interested to see how the action unfolds as we kick off a new trading week today.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MNGA News, New Options Ideas & More

Fresh Options Ideas

As we head into the end of another excitement-filled week, we’ve zeroed in on some options ideas for daytrading that could yield positive results. Friday is always an interesting time to trade weekly options; premiums are lowered significantly due to time decay, creating just the kind of high-risk, high-reward environment for which we are always on the lookout.

We have extensively used the options chains of all of the following high-profile stocks to bank enormous gains in the past (PBR Archive, AAPL Archive, NFLX Archive):

Netflix, Inc. NFLX – When we last touched upon NFLX the stock was trading in the high-$300 to $400 range, and since then it has made a monstrous move to its current base in the high-$500′s.

The stock appears to want to gap up this morning into the $600+ range; we’re going to be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip scenario, and as usual, we’ll provide a range where we think the heaviest action will fall- in this case we’re going to monitor NFLX Weekly $595-612.50 Calls.

Strategies may require adjustment on-the-fly as trading kicks off; we’ll start off with in-the-money calls, keeping in mind that we’ll need to roll up our strike prices, should the stock continue to run.

____

Apple, Inc. AAPL - It’s been some time since we ventured into Apple territory. To close out the week, we’re going to be monitoring the Weekly $128 and $129 Calls for potential quick-strike opportunities.

____

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – This old-time favorite has been on a steady incline since March, and recently has been flirting with the $10-level. That has made the PBR Weekly $10 Calls good for intraday flips all week long, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the same were true today. We’ll need to see the stock hold support at or above 9.85 on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.


MagneGas Corp. MNGA

We want to keep a sharp watch over MNGA which is gapping up on the heels of this morning’s big announcement of a contract with a branch of the US Military.

The company also launched a new website earlier this week that you can check out here: www.magnegas.com


Banro Corp. BAA

We also want to quickly pat ourselves on the back for the timely tag of BAA that we placed in yesterday’s extended watchlist. It was the first time the stock has appeared in our reports in almost a year, and it produced the chance for a nice intraday gain.

From an early low of .2991, BAA traded up to a high of .353, a respectable 18% jump. We’ll keep our eyes on this one into next week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GEVO Recap & More

Gevo, Inc. GEVO

We called attention to GEVO in yesterday morning’s premarket report, citing a high-profile PR in which the company announced an agreement with Alaska Airlines (>>Read PR). What resulted was a stroke of flawless timing, with the stock putting up a record performance on the day, and it put a nice cap on what has been a week of multiple great calls.

The stock started out by gapping up into the 3.50′s, and undergoing the dip we were looking for caused by impatient profit-takers, found its daily low of 3.28 and then it was off to the races! The subsequent high came in at 6.11, an unprecedented 86% intraday rip for GEVO, and it occurred on more than 40X the 3-month average trading volume.

The total increase witnessed as of this morning’s premarket high of 7.43 amounts to 126% and marks the second big-board double-bagger we called this week! (Refer to PTBI for the 1st).

The stock has peeled back into the 6.50-range so we could be in line to see another dip-and-style move from GEVO to close out the week. We’ll want to see it maintain a level of support at or above the new 200DMA of 4.90 on any pullbacks.



Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA

We tagged TSLA in yesterday’s extended watchlist and the stock made a nice move from 220.25 to 237.48. While it translates to an intraday gain of just 8%, the spike caused some serious action in the options chain, which is where we’ll have our attention focused.

The sets of contracts that we’re going to be monitoring for potential opportunities in coming weeks will fall into the range of the 05/22 $230-240 Calls. Our interest, of course, will be predicated upon the stock maintaining support at or above the 200DMA of 227.28.


Motorola Solutions, Inc. MSI

We also want to make a preliminary mention of MSI, which we noticed flirting with levels very near to its 52-week low this week, and it has begun to exhibit signs of a bounce. It’s going to be a stock that we monitor for potential continued rebound action into next week.
