MannKind Corp. MNKD

We’ve been following MNKD for quite a long while, that’s why at the end of last month when we saw the stock fall to its lowest PPS since before the huge run back in the fall, we immediately signaled it as a bottom-watch play.

That was the morning of December 22nd, just prior to the holiday break. The stock saw its low of 2.30 the following session, on December 26th, and has since recovered much of the ground it had lost. Yesterday, possibly as the result of a short squeeze, the stock soared to a high of 4.05. That works out to a respectable 76% upswing in just one month’s time.

It remains to be seen if the stock can retest the impressive highs we saw from it back in October.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NBEV Recap & More

New Age Beverages Corp. NBEV

It was back on the 9th of this month that we selected NBEV as a potential bottom play, and wanted to kick off the week by swinging back around to recap the excellent move the stock has made for us thus far.

After seeing a low of 2.11 on the morning of our initial alert, the stock has continually risen over the eight sessions since, touching a high of 4.24 on Friday. That represents a very nice 101% move, while volume over the same period has been notably increased. We’ll continue to monitor the progress here in coming sessions.

PetMed Express Inc. PETS

Speaking of steady risers, we’ve watched PETS for quite awhile now, having mentioned it for the first time in our report from the morning of September 11th.

Subsequent to that report, we observed a low of 32.90 and despite already being a thirty dollar stock, we’ve still seen it increase gradually and significantly, culminating at Friday’s high of 53.89. That marks a 64% increase, which is absolutely fantastic for a stock in this price range.

We’ll be interested to see how the stock is affected by the company’s solid premarket earnings release today. It’s gapping up in early trading and it appears we will see our observed highs boosted yet again.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: XXII Update & More

22nd Century Group, Inc. XXII

It was back on November 7th that we highlighted a large group of cannabis stocks, and professed our unyielding interest in the space as a whole. XXII was among those that we specifically highlighted as promising pot stocks in that report, and despite it being more than 8 weeks later, the stock has continually bulled its ways to new highs ever since.

We wanted to swing back around this morning to outline the excellent run it has been on since November. Subsequent to our report on the 7th the stock saw an absolute bottom of 2.00 even before beginning its months-long ascent. Yesterday the stock reached yet another new high of 3.85, marking an overall upswing of 93%

Yield10 Bioscience, Inc. YTEN

Following a huge single session run in early December, YTEN was unable to hold onto any of the ground it had gained, and with the ‘help’ of a massive public offering, continued to descend until recently.

This week, the stock has begun to show signs of a bottom bounce, and we’re going to want to add it to the radar on a recovery watch. As you can see form the chart snapshot included below, there is a lot of room for a potential surge, including a gap to fill to the upside.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

Yesterday we offered up our opinion that the SPY was going to get back to its bullish ways, and outlined what we felt was an attractive set of contracts in the options chain, the SPY 01/17 $277.50-279 Calls. It was for quick-strike trades only, given that they expired at 4 o’clock, and the chances were certainly there for the taking.

We said we’d be looking for the classic dip and rip pattern to present those chances for intraday flips, and our idea couldn’t have worked out much better, including our second instance of multiple thousand percent gainers in the past week! The potential single session profits on the table were as follows:

$277.50 Calls – Range: .41-2.53 – Max Gain: 517%
$278 Calls – Range: .21 -2.03 – Max Gain: 867%
$278.50 Calls – Range: .10-1.54 – Max Gain: 1440%
$279 Calls - Range: .05-1.04 – Max Gain: 1980%

The York Water Co. YORW

We also want to submit a fresh options idea this morning to coincide with an ideal chart setup on YORW. As you can see on the included snapshot, the stock began to rebound off of a multiple-bottom setup and looks as if it could easily make a run of at least a few dollars in a potential recovery.

We’ll be ready with a couple of contracts to track in the event that a more sustained upswing is in the cards, with the YORW 02/16 $30 & $35 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NBEV Bottom Bounce & More

New Age Beverages Corp. NBEV

We tagged NBEV as a possible bottom-bouncer in our premarket report yesterday morning, and stock has definitely risen to the occasion with the beginnings of what could be a significant rebound.

The stock had been trending down for the better part of the last six months, having started the summer trading at more than $6/share. It seemed a good time to call a bottom, and so far our idea is looking good.

While it’s off to a slow start, rising just 17% from 2.20 to 2.58 yesterday on its highest volume in over four months, we feel good about the chances of a more sustained move, especially with the stock hitting a new high of 3.42 in the premarket today. From yesterday’s low that’s already a swing of 55% We’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled for further movement from this bottom bouncer.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL 

We’re no strangers to trading DAL options. It has traditionally been one of those companies we can count on to provide good post-earnings opportunities after a beat, and today the company exceeded expectations across the board in their Q4 report.

We’re are going to signal a range of contracts which will be expiring tomorrow to try to garner some rapid-strike chances. Our targets are going to be the DAL Weekly $57-58 Calls.
