Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Idea & More

Acacia Research Corp. ACTG

Pretty much the entirety of 2017 has been some tough sledding for ACTG, which was in an overall downtrend since last winter when it was trading at more than twice its current value.

That all seemed to change around midway through last month, as the stock has managed to establish a good rebound effort for several sessions. In the premarket the stock has broken previous resistance which coincided with the 50DMA (3.63) and could make a move to fill that gao we’ve pointed out on the chart below.

We’ll put the stock on watch in the days and weeks ahead as we kick off this holiday-shortened trading week.


Insmed, Inc. INSM

After posting key data reflecting positive top-line results in its Phase III lung disease treatment study, INSM has exploded into the blue sky this morning. The stock has rapidly gained more than twice its value in premarket trading, and whenever we come across a situation like this, we begin to look for the options contracts that could give us the best opportunity for rapid gains.

We think that the INSM 09/15 $27-30 Calls could stand to see some nice activity if the stock continues the blue-sky breakout we’ve witnessed so far.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BVTK Pops Again & More

Bravatek Solutions, Inc. BVTK

BVTK was among our mentions in Wednesday’s premarket report after it was unearthed in our chatroom* the previous morning before making a 500% move.  Those who missed that run got another chance right away as the stock ran from .0009-.0035 that afternoon, and topped out at .0041 to close out the short week on Friday. That added another two-day swing of 355% to the activity we had observed in BVTK, which was followed by a pullback to .0015.

Once again, to kick off the new trading week yesterday, BVTK began to run, returning to a high of .0034 on the day, representing yet another two-day upswing out of this volatile runner amounting to 127%  The stock ended the session having traded roughly three-and-a-half times its monthly average volume. Things could get very interesting if it can manage to crack resistance at the previous swing high of .0041.

The company filed an 8-K this morning as well , pertaining to an agreement with i3 Integrative Creative Solutions, pursuant to which i3 Integrative will promote and solicit commitments in the United States federal government military and civilian markets regarding the Company’s cybersecurity email software and telecom services.

Bank of America Corp BAC – Options Ideas 

Whenever we spot an opportunity to swoop in post-earnings with some options ideas, we jump on it right away, and that’s what we have with BAC this morning.

We haven’t highlighted this stock in quite awhile,but with a very solid beat on earnings and a small gap-up in the premarket, we’re going to want to signal a couple of short term contracts for observation in the BAC Weekly $22.50 and $23 Calls.

In the event that a more sustained rebound is in the cards, considering the fact that BAC was already coming off of a relative bottom just yesterday, we’ll have the BAC 05/12 $23.50 & $24 Calls on watch as well.



Bottom-Watchlist

We want to put an observational tag on both Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. SRNE and OncoMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. OMED.  Both of these stocks have taken serious beatings of late, and consequently, are in extreme oversold territory. Chances for recovery plays here seem quite high, so we’re going to watch for these to establish higher lows in sessions ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DLTR Recap & More

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR – Options Update

Yesterday turned out to be a nice bullish session for DLTR, making us glad we added it as a focus in our premarket report. No sooner than we updated our readers on the DLTR options ideas we submitted in last Wednesday‘s premarket report, did they take off to new highs once again.

The DLTR 04/21 $78-80 Calls had already provided us with double-bag gain chances, but yesterday’s activity pushed those figures a lot higher. The following numbers represent the maximum possible gains so far over the last six trading sessions:

$78 Calls – Range: .51-2.05 – Max Gain: 301%
$78.50 Calls – Range: .63-2.05 – Max Gain: 225%
$79 Calls – Range:  .48-1.43 – Max Gain: 198%
$79.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.40- Max Gain: 300%
$80 Calls – Range: .30-1.34 – Max Gain: 347%

We can continue to keep these contracts on our radar, with more than three weeks remaining until their expiration date.


Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Update

Another set of 04/21 options contracts that we’ve been tracking have also fared well, tacking on new highs yesterday,

We slated the PBR 04/21 $9.50 & $10 Calls for observation a week ago today, and must now swing back around to highlight the excellent moves these plays have made in a week’s time.

04/21 $9.50 Calls – Range: .18-.51 – Max Gain: 183%
04/21 $10 Calls – Range: .09-.27 – Max Gain: 200%

As stated on the above mentioned play, these contracts have more than three weeks before expiration, so we’ll continue to keep tracking their activity in coming sessions. Yesterday the stock closed just under the 200DMA of 9.69, and we’ll remain bullish on these ideas if the stock can break past that barrier.


Sphere 3D Corp. ANY

We want to make mention of ANY this morning after noticing a set of interesting circumstances. Just a few days following the closing of a $4.5M direct offering/ private placement, the company has now announced it has been awarded a $3M contract  (>>View PR)

All of this activity on the newsreel is happening concurrently with a potential reversal and rebound on the chart. The stock has been failing to satisfy its $1.00 minimum bid requirement for the better part of nine months now, and will need to get itself back above that mark or it could face delisting after just three years on the NASDAQ.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Week Kicks Off on High Note


Yesterday, despite the fact that the markets as a whole were on pace for the longest sustained backslide in more than half a decade, we still managed to see new highs in a few of the stocks we’ve been tracking.  We also observed solid intraday performances from a couple other plays that were on our morning watchlist, so we’ll begin today with a quick roundup of all these movers.

Dolat Ventures, Inc. DOLV

We signaled our interest in tracking DOLV in Thursday’s report, and at the time we’d witness the stock trading at a low of .0056.

Yesterday concluded with a new high, and the recording of three straight bullish sessions since then, with DOLV trading in an intraday range from .0125 to .019, for a gain of 52% It brings the updated figure on the three session swing we’ve seen so far to an impressive 239%


MyDx, Inc. MYDX

We circled back to MYDX, a stock we’ve tracked all the way from a February low of .001, last Wednesday, while it was trading as low as .0077. It too has put together a multi-day run leading to impressive new highs once again yesterday.

The stock saw a daily range of .017-.0226, which represents an increase of 32% on the day, 193% from last Wednesday’s low, and a ridiculous 2160% from our witnessed low in February!


U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM

Here’s another stock whose low (.014) came during the month of February, following our report on the 27th. We’ve been all over it since then , and in two sustained bursts it has absolutely soared.

After reminding our readers of that fact in yesterday’s premarket report, USRM managed to hit yet another new high for us. It traded from .07-.112 for a daily boost of 60% and the new high recorded pushed our overall observed gain on this play in just one months time to an even 700%


Honorable Mentions

We placed a couple of plays in yesterday’s extended watchlist that didn’t blow our minds by any stretch of the imagination, but did log some solid intraday increases that warrant continued observation for each of them.

Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CPRX
Daily Range: 1.63-2.07 – Max Gain: 27%

Impax Laboratories, Inc. IPXL
Daily Range: 10.50-13.00 – Max Gain: 24%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Hottest Movers & More

Good Morning Traders! We’re eager to start off a fresh week by taking a look at the stocks we talked about in Friday’s premarket report. All four of them put up solid intraday performances which led to the recording of new highs across the board:
-
  HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. HTGM

Our initial flagging of HTGM  in Thursday’s premarket report and afforded us the chance to see shares changing hands as low as 2.85. We observed a great run that day, and reminded our readers that we’d be keeping it on our radar on Friday. It’s a good thing that we did, because the real party had only just gotten started.

Friday’s session brought a next-level run from 5.97 to a high of 13.25. That works out to an intraday rip of 122% and a total two-day upswing of 365% over our observed low from Thursday. It went so crazy on Friday that it had to be briefly halted twice, and the stock is showing some interesting premarket activity today, so be sure to keep an eye on HTGM. Volatility like this is a swing-traders’ dream.


Dolat Ventures, Inc. DOLV
This was another stock we highlighted in Thursday’s report, and after seeing an intraday spike of 74% that day (.0056-.00975), it would also end up primed for an even more impressive run on Friday.

DOLV traded in a range from .0065 to a new high of .0128, marking a shot at up to 97% in single-session gains, and extending our observed two-day range to a respectable 129%

-

MyDx, Inc. MYDX
We’ve been tracking MYDX heavily throughout 2017, as we were just mentioning on Friday,

We had come back to it Wednesday, when the stock was trading as low as .0077, and on Friday it hit a new high of .0194. That marked a three-day swing of 152% and extended our witnessed range from a low of .001 in mid-February to a whopping 184%

-

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM
Last but not least among our topics of discussion from Friday is USRM, which we’ve tracked from a low of .014 (February 27th).Just like the three aforementioned plays, we watched as the stock soared to new highs during Friday’s session. It traded from a low of .062 up to .0915, for a daily upswing of 48% and an updated figure on our total observed run of 553%
-
ProText Mobility, Inc. TXTM
-
We noticed an increase in volume and price activity in TXTM on Friday, and the company has announced a new acquisition that will have it appearing in news feeds today (>>View PR).

We know the stock has the ability to take off quickly, as evidenced by its rapid run from the triple-zero range to .0056 at the end of January which we covered extensively in our daily traders chats*. That’s another reason why we want to reserve a slot on our watchscreens for TXTM today.
