Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GEVO Recap, Potential Bottom-Plays & More

Gevo, Inc. GEVO
We tracked GEVO to some nice gains late this spring, and re-admitted the stock into the conversation in yesterday’s report. We were met with a respectable intraday increase as it traded up from a low of 2.37 to a daily high of 3.00. It registered as an opportunity of single session gains of up to 27% on volume of more than twice the 3-month average.

The stock is pulling back slightly in the premarket today, but we could see some further chances from this play into next week, provided it can continue to build a higher base of support in coming sessions. We’ll want to see the stock maintain above yesterday’s swing low of 2.37 to remain interested at the moment.

Potential Bottom-Plays

PostRock Energy Corp. PSTR

We spotted some potential in PSTR after catching it on a routine scan recently, and thought it’d be a good time to mention it as it is coming up off of recent relative lows.

The stock ran into some resistance just a tick below its 50DMA of 2.76 yesterday, and that’s going to be the figure we watch for a break. A move past that point, and there doesn’t seem to be much standing in the way of this low-float play running up to the level of its current 200DMA, presently sitting at 4.01.

Wizard World, Inc. WIZD

WIZD is a stock that has recently been beaten back to new 52-week lows, and as our regular readers are well aware, we’ve had an exceptional amount of success in the past with stocks in just this position. As you can see on the prepared chart below, WIZD is drastically oversold at the present time, and trading at just a fraction of its moving averages.

We’ll keep this stock on the radar heading into next week, and have our eyes open for a move up off of these newly attained lows. On a side note, the company just announced that the comic convention it is hosting the third week in September has secured an appearance by legendary boxer, Mike Tyson. >>VIEW PRĀ 

Fresh Options Ideas

LinkedIn Corp. LNKD – Despite a hefty beat on earnings and raised guidance by the company, LNKD shared slipped more than 5% during yesterday’s session. The reactionary slide was primarily due to the perception of weakness in some of the areas of LinkedIn’s core business. Despite that fact, we want to offer up a longer-term options idea relating to the stock’s potential recovery over the next several weeks. We’re going to give specific attention to LNKD Sept. 11th $210-220 Calls.


GoPro, Inc. GPRO & Expedia, Inc. EXPE – Both of these stocks are gapping up in the premarket this morning, so as a closing idea for the week we’ll be monitoring Weekly Calls in each of them for a possible dip-and-rip. Those ranges of highest interest to us are GPRO $63-64.50 Calls, and EXPE $115-117 Calls.

Options Trading Side Note:

Don’t forget about the success we’ve had this week with the Weekly Ford (F) $14.50-15 Calls, and Weekly MU $19.50-20.00 Calls. We’ll have our eyes peeled for the possibility of seeing some added spikes as the trading week comes to a close.
