Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Huge VRX Calls, New Ideas & More

Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX

Our latest round of VRX Calls will almost certainly go down as one of our best three-day swings on any idea we’ve ever formulated. Beginning on Tuesday when we offered up the VRX Weekly $10.50-12 Calls as a target range. That day the stock traded as low as 10.57 before beginning this epic run that facilitated some truly impressive gains. VRX continued to bull its way to new highs yesterday, hitting 14.55, which in itself represents a 38% rise over Tuesday’s low.

Just like we did in yesterday’s premarket report, we’ve included the intraday moves, as well as our overall observed gains. 

$10.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.95-3.89 – Daily Gain: 118% – Total Range: .40-3.89 – 3-Day Swing: 873%
$11 Calls – Daily Range: 1.46-3.50 – Daily Gain: 140% – Total Range: .18-3.50 – 3-Day Swing: 1844%
$11.50 Calls – Daily Range: 1.27-2.99 – Daily Gain: 135% – Total Range: .08-2.99 – 3-Day Swing: 3638%
$12 Calls – Daily Range: .51-2.51 – Daily Gain: 392% – Total Range: .02-2.51 – 3-Day Swing: 12450%

A hearty congratulations goes out to anyone who took advantage of one of our best ideas of the year so far!


Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. NAK

Following our alerts on the stock in March at which time we stated that we believed there was “serious upside potential” for NAK, the stock has proven our assumption to be accurate. It has lived up to that potential as well in recent week, and this morning we’re seeing the stock gapping up to new highs in the premarket today with shares changing hands for as much as 2.60.

From the 1.06 low we observed in March, that represents a roughly two-month upswing of 145%

Today’s heightened activity likely stems from the new announcement the company made via PR this morning. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alaska-based Pebble Limited Partnership, and the US Environmental Protection Agency have reached a settlement agreement with respect to the parties’ longstanding legal dispute.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, EPA has agreed the Pebble Project can proceed into normal course permitting under the Clean Water Act and National Environmental Policy Act. (>View Full PR)



Snap, Inc. SNAP – Options Ideas

SNAP took a pounding yesterday after releasing earnings that many are referring to as a disaster, but is recovering in the premarket today. We want to try to signal a range of calls to coincide with what could be a significant course-correct.

We’re looking at the SNAP Weekly $18 Calls* for quick daytrading opportunities, as well as the SNAP 6/16 $18-19 Calls for a longer-term recovery idea.

Bonus Idea: AZN $32-33.50 Weekly Calls*

*Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FNBC Review & More

First NBC Bank Holding Co. FNBC

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, we first alerted on FNBC in Monday’s premarket report after noticing that the stock was looking oversold and searching for a bottom.

It did indeed find that bottom at .0932 on Tuesday, from which point it has launched a multi-day recovery, setting an amazing new high of .89 yesterday. From its morning low of .29  it ran 207% intraday, and from our observed low, a whopping 855% move up in a span of three trading sessions! It’s also worth it to mention that there is still a gap to fill on the chart up to the 2.50-range.

This definitely goes down in the books as our most exciting call to watch this week, and cheers go out to any of our readers who caught on and made a pretty penny!



Ampliphi BioSciences Corp. APHB

APHB was among our tracked stocks from yesterday morning’s report, and it yielded a very nice intraday chance with its daily performance. The stock traded up from a morning low of 2.17 and hit 4.88 just prior to lunch hour on massive volume to the tune of more than 87 times the 30-day average!

That worked out to a great move of 125% on the day, so despite gapping down in early trading this morning, we’re pleased with the opportunity APHB offered during yesterday’s session. Additionally, with the extreme volume and volatility in this stock, we won’t rule out seeing another pop from APHB on the eventual rebound.



Northern Dynasty Minerals, Ltd. NAK

We also want to give an update on NAK, which we last tagged at the end of March. Early April brought a considerable upswing from 1.21-1.85, a 53% move. Over the past several sessions that followed the stock has been under consolidation, and we want to come back around to put it on our radars again, as it looks as if it may be getting ready for its next leg up.

The RSI and MACD, which are typically some of our favorite technical indicators aren’t giving off strong signals either way at the moment, but the stock recorded a hammer candle yesterday. In a downtrend, that can be a bullish reversal signal, so we want to keep an eye on NAK as we close out the trading week.



SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Idea

We also wanted to make it known that we are going to be tracking some SPY Calls today to coincide with a promising jobs numbers release, and what seems like it could be a bullish day for the markets as a whole. We’ll have the SPY Weekly $238-50-239.50 Calls* on our watchscreens today.

*Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: USRM, ICLD Follow-ups & More

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. USRM
We’ve been tracking USRM very closely over the past few weeks, since initially mentioning it on the morning of February 27th and witnessing a huge subsequent increase( .014-.0545,+289%). We monitored the consolidation off of that high down to .0175, and once again signaled that it was time to give it our close attention last week on the 15th.

The rebound that has since occurred has been very nice, with USRM surging back to .053 yesterday, a jump of 203% over its .0175 swing low. So that’s twice now, in the span of less than a month that we’ve seen a 200% move out of this play. We’re obviously going to continue following it, with the type of price action and volatility we’ve seen so far, USRM is currently a swing-trader’s paradise.


InterCloud Systems, Inc. ICLD

We also had a ringer with ICLD earlier this month, when we signaled it on the 2nd before the stock took off from a low of .0157 to a high .0985, a 527% rip. After watching it consolidate off of those highs for a few days, re brought it back to readers’ attention in yesterday’s premarket report, and our attempted timing of the reversal couldn’t have worked any better.

From an early low of .0302, the stock steadily made its way up to a high .0439 shortly after 1PM, for an intraday spike of 45% and held more than half of its daily gains into the close, so this one will also remain on our watchlist in coming sessions.


Northern Dynasty Minerals, Ltd. NAK

We tagged NAK last Thursday after watching the stock search out a bottom for quite awhile. The stock did bounce, and has thus far posted a 31% increase, reaching 1.58 yesterday and closing just a tick below at 1.57, as you can see on the included snapshot.

Also on the chart, we can see that the RSI is on the verge of cracking the 50-line, and the MACD has just crossed in a bullish manner. Conditions seem to be ripe for the possibility of a continued rebound, so we’ll pay close attention to NAK in sessions to come.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: JNUG Recap & Much More

Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF  (JNUG) – Recap

Despite only providing a fleeting opportunity for gains on Tuesday morning after we submitted our options trading idea for the JNUG chain, we followed up with a reminder in yesterday’s report that the idea was still in play, and that we’d need to keep our heads on a swivel looking out for the move we were hoping for.

With the help of a Fed rate hike of a quarter of a percentage point, announced by Chairperson Janet Yellen yesterday, our specified contracts, the JNUG 03/31 $7-8 Calls took a serious turn for the better.

The daily ranges and potential profits were as follows:

$7 Calls – Range: .40-1.40 – Max Gain: 250%
$7.50 Calls – Range: .35-1.00 – Max Gain: 186%
$8 Calls – Range: .20-.87 – Max Gain: 335%

Once again, we’re going to reiterate our interest in these ideas, which could be in line to extend their highs, with JNUG gapping up in early trading this morning.


Aralez Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ARLZ

We placed ARLZ on bottom watch yesterday morning in what turned out to be a fantastic stroke of good timing. We just wanted to update readers this morning on the reversal which did indeed occur during the session. While the intraday gain potential topped out at 25% as the stock ran from the open (and also low of day) at 2.11 to as much as 2.63.

The inverted hammer candle that the stock posted yesterday is often thought to be an indicator of the end of a downward pattern, so we’ll be very interested to continue tracking ARLZ in sessions to come. Chart indicators are still looking very ripe, and we’d be surprised if the show was over after just a 25% rise.


Cannabis Sector Comments

Lastly, we just want to address the cannabis sector, particularly those stocks that are connected to legal recreational marijuana. After some very damaging comments made recently by the Trump Administration wherein it was suggested that the government could crack down on legal weed, yesterday we witnessed something of a reversal from Jeff Sessions.

Sessions appeared to hint at insufficient DOJ funding as a primary reason that perhaps the current regime will not be changing Obama-era guidance on leaving the treatment of recreational weed as a states’ rights issue.

On the heels of this development, we’re going to want to keep closer tabs on the cannabis sector once again, particularly those plays that lost a lot of ground after the first round of comments from Washington.

Some of our go-to favorites in the space have been OWCP, TRTC, SING, SGDH, CBIS, and MJNA, so we’ll be tracking these more closely in the days and weeks ahead, along with the sector as a whole, as stated above.


Fresh Options Idea:

The TSLA chart is looking ripe for a recovery, and the stock is gapping up moderately in premarket trading this morning. We want to signal a range of calls to monitor in the TSLA chain to potentially take advantage of what could be a protracted recovery. We’re going to zero in on the TSLA 04/07 $270-277.50 Calls, and monitor them in the days and weeks ahead.
