Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Updates

FutureLand Corp. FUTL

After already showing us a multi-bag swing from our initial alert on Friday to new highs on Monday, FUTL put up another solid performance yesterday. The stock traded in an intraday range from .0024 in the morning, and edged it way up all day to hit a new high of .0037 shortly before 2PM. That works out to a 54% push on the day, accompanied by roughly six times the monthly average volume.  .

From our observed low of .0012 on Friday, the stock has now managed a three-session swing amounting to 308% and will hold our interest as long as it continues to register higher base levels of support.

Apple, Inc. AAPL  – Options Recap

We figured to take advantage for the hype surrounding Apple for its big iPhone 8/X event, and there was enough price action and volatility throughout the day so as to present two separate opportunities for intraday swing trades.

We were looking at the AAPL Weekly $160 & $162.50 Calls, each of which exhibited the same pattern of an early run, followed by a dip-and-rip for a secondary move in the afternoon.

The $160′s first ran from 2.44-4.58 (+88%), and then from 1.07-1.98 (+85%), while the $162.50′s traded from 1.29-2.77 (+115%) initially, followed by a later move from .45-.80 (+78%). All in all, some nice activity for our first AAPL calls in quite some time.

 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

Drawing us to CBRL this morning is a solid setup on the chart with the stock having recently reversed off of a bottom, in conjuction with a premarket earnings beat.  This is just the sort of scenario we’re always scanning for, and in this instance, we’re going to formulate both a shorter and longer-term options idea.

We’re going to place the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch in the days and week ahead.

Honorable Mentions:

Forterra, Inc. FRTA – After tagging FRTA in Friday’s premarket report, we’ve seen a pretty nice uptrend from the stock. It’s traded up from 3.66 to 5.25, a move of 43% We’ll want to continue to monitor its activity as we head through midweek.

Quotient Ltd. QTNT - We had QTNT in yesterday’s watchlist, and want to continue to track it after it made a similar move.  Also from a low of 3.66, QTNT saw a subsequent high of 5.14, which comes out to an intraday pop of 40%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: IMNG Goes Parabolic & More

Innovativ Media Group, Inc. INMG

Our regular readers may be tiring of so many mentions of INMG in such a short span, but the stock continues to soar to new heights on practically a daily basis, and yesterday, the intensity of the bullish pattern increased to impressive levels.

As we were just saying in yesterday morning’s report, we had already seen no fewer than three separate multi-bag rips from INMG in the past week. We also noted Tuesday’s strong close on heavy volume, and that we’d continue to stay on its heels. It’s a good thing we did, as INMG traded in a daily range from .012 to a new high of .0285, for an intraday pop of 138%

From last Thursday, over a span of just four sessions, we’ve now witnessed a total increase of 470% over our observed low of .005. Of course, participants in our daily chats* could have caught our original alert the previous day when the stock traded as low as .0019, from which yesterday’s high represents a five session swing of 1400%

Once again, the stock maintained more than half of its daily increase into the close on more than five times the monthly average volume, so we’ll need to continue to keep our heads on a swivel with INMG. At some point, the stock will peel back off of these impressive highs and that’s when we’ll be looking for what could be a serious dip-and-rip pattern.

SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

We alerted on SPU in Monday’s premarket report after noticing the stock was searching for a bottom, with a monstrous gap to fill on the chart to the upside.

Tuesday’s session brought an end that search for a reversal, with SPU bottoming out at 2.30 before reaching 3.3299 yesterday. That’s an upswing of 45% and we will certainly want to continue to monitor SPU, which still has a mammoth gap to fill on the chart.

04/20 Holiday Reminder: We always have our eyes on the cannabis sector, but will intensify our focus today especially, given that it is the marijuana counter-culture’s main day of celebration for the year! Many companies in this arena use it as a promotional tool, and activity in the recreational space usually reaches a frenzy during this period, so be vigilant, and Happy 4/20 to all!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ESPR Options, MVIS Recaps & More

Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR

ESPR found new highs once again yesterday for the second straight session after we initially tagged it for options trading potential on Tuesday.

In addition to monitoring Weekly In-the-money Calls, which yielded up the opportunity at gains ranging from 400-1400% on Tuesday, and continued their own runs yesterday, we also had specified a longer-term idea that continued to work extraordinarily well.

That idea, the 04/17 $90 Calls, traded from a low of 11.60 all the way up to 21.90 yesterday. It represented an excellent single-session intraday increase of 89%, and a whopping 525% jump over our observed low from Tuesday (3.50).

Big congratulations go out to any of our readers who reaped the benefits ESPR, which has easily emerged as our top target of the week! The stock is gapping up in the premarket this morning, so it appears as if we could see a further extension of those gains.

Microvision, Inc. MVIS

On Monday we tagged MVIS in a gap-up watchlist, and it has found its way into every one of our reports this week, setting new highs each day.

Yesterday the stock traded in a range from 3.42-4.23, a healthy intraday move of 24% From our observed low of 2.88 on Monday, that high marked a rise of 47% overall.

As you can see below, given the extremely over-bought look of the chart, now might be a good time to lock in any profits gained over the course of the week. This major move has been fueled by a PR out Monday in which the company announced orders totaling more than $14M it had received for components of its patented PicoP® display technology >> VIEW PR

Side Note:

Yesterday in advance of the FOMC Meeting, we cautioned readers to stay alert and watch for the effect that Janet Yellen’s commentary would have on the markets. To take advantage of this expected surge in either direction, we mentioned trading options calls on either the SPY, if the markets went up, or UVXY and/or VIX if they slid back.  Either way it played out, we said, we wanted “to stay in-the-money with our strike prices.”

As it turned out, the Fed announcement caused a sharp rise in the markets, and as a result the SPY Calls were the ones to play. We saw substantial gains on in-the-money Calls as the SPY spiked to $211.27.

For example, the SPY $209.50 Calls traded in a range from .80-2.00, for an intraday move totaling 150%  $210 Calls also spiked heavily from a low of .40 to as much as 1.59, a huge 297% jump.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ESPR Highlights & Much More

Yesterday, on a day when the market as a whole was faltering, we’re proud to say we managed to bring our readers several opportunities to gain in both stocks and options:

Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR- Options Ideas

ESPR turned out to be a great call for us in yesterday’s morning report. The stock itself made an impressive session-long move from a low of 82.69 up to 100.50 (+22%), resulting in some monstrous spikes for the options ideas we highlighted.

We raised a flag of interest on in-the-money Weekly Calls, and were rewarded with mega-spikes across the board:

$80 Calls – Trading Range: 4.00-20.00  Max Gain: 400%
$85 Calls - Trading Range: 2.15-14.50  Max Gain: 574%
$90 Calls – Trading Range: .70-14.50  Max Gain: 1400%
$95 Calls – Trading Range: .64-7.25  Max Gain: 1032%

Even the play we designated as a longer-term selection, the 04/17 $90 Calls, were immediately and significantly impacted, trading in a range from 3.50-14.50. That move was good for intraday gains of up to 314%

As far as our other options calls were concerned, we met with success there as well:

American Airlines Group Inc. AALFor AAL, we zeroed in on the 04/02 $55 Calls which ended up trading up from .79, to as high as 1.11, marking a 40% intraday gain. Any other contracts that got pushed into the money would have also provided excellent opportunities for successful day-trades.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – On AAPL, we mentioned that we’d be watching the 04/02 $129 Calls and those made a healthy run from 1.25-1.80, for a chance at profit in excess of 44% on the day.

Other Standouts From Tuesday

There was significant excitement over the success of our options calls yesterday, but we still don’t want these other notable gainers from our watchlist to get lost in the shuffle:

Propanc Health Group Corp. PPCH - Trading Range: .0211-.03 – Max Gain: 42%

Microvision, Inc. MVIS - Trading Range: 3.07-3.55 – Max Gain: 16%

NovaBay Pharma, Inc. NBY – Trading Range: .56-.65 – Max Gain: 16%

Black Diamond, Inc. BDE – Trading Range: 8.45-9.84 – Max Gain: 16%

Side Note:

We are going to be sitting on the sidelines watching like hawks until we hear from Janet Yellen as the big FOMC meeting kicks off today. What she ultimately has to say will likely sway the markets one way or the other; we will wait to see which direction they’re going to go.

If the bull market remains intact, we’ll be looking to go long on SPY Calls.  Should the direction be a downward one, we can entertain UVXY and/or VIX Calls. Remember: Whatever way it plays out, we’ll want to stay in-the-money with our strike prices.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MVIS, IBIO Recaps, Options Ideas & More

Monday’s Watchlist Movers

iBio, Inc. IBIO - A quick search of IBIO in our archives reveals a lengthy history of mentions. We have definitely seen some impressive moves from this play in the past. History tends to repeat itself, and did so once again as IBIO stood out on yesterday’s extended watchlist.

The stock made a solid intraday move, trading in a range from .72-.89. That was good for gains of up to 24%, and the move came on great-than-average volume. We’re going to keep a continued watch on this play; if it manages to break through its recent resistance area around 1.00-1.05, things could get very interesting from there.

Microvision, Inc. MVIS - This one appeared in yesterday’s gap-up watchlist, and it too would make a modest, yet solid move. The stock made a continual move-up in the first two hours of trading, rising from a low of 2.88 to a HOD of 3.44. That marked out an intraday gain of 19%
