Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ECYT Recap & More

Endocyte, Inc. ECYT

Our first order of business this morning is to review the recent performance of ECYT, which we initially slated for observation in our report on February 28th. At the time, the stock had been slowly gaining momentum for much of February, and it looked ripe for a more pronounced breakout.

That day, as the stock was trading for as little as 4.51, we witnessed an explosion in volume that has precipitated a very impressive run, persisting for over two weeks up to the present time. Yesterday’s session brought a new high of 11.54 in ECYT, which marks an upswing of 156% in a relatively short time frame.

Valeant Pharma International, Inc. VRX

On Monday morning, we came up with some options ideas for VRX, which we noted was “ready for a bottom bounce”. We also made reference to a huge Form-4 buy of $108.8M came in as well, which led us to postulate that “for now the stock has gone as low as it’s going to go.”

We couldn’t have been any more spot-on in our assessment of VRX, and the result has been a solid performance for the short-term calls we put on watch, the VRX Weekly $15 & $15.50 Calls. The $15′s ran from .65-1.15 for a gain of 77%, while the $15.50′s moved from a low of .30 to .71, an increase of 137%

We had some longer-term ideas as well which we will likely come back to in an upcoming report, as it appears VRX will continue to head up. On that note, we’ll also look to roll up our strike prices on the weekly calls to the $16 & $16.50′s.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: INTC Recap & More

Intel Corp. INTC

On Friday morning, we saw serious potential in the INTC options chain following the company’s earning beat. They posted solid figures, but some were concerned over the possible security flaws prsent in the company’s new chips. Those fears were shrugged off with ease, as the stock took off for what ultimately turned out to be an exceptionally bullish session.

The move INTC made allowed for the chance at some really nice intraday profits in each of the three contracts we designated in Friday morning’s report, the INTC Weekly $47.50-48.50 Calls.

$47.50 Calls – Range: .75-2.50 – Max Gain: 233%
$48 Calls – Range: .43-1.99 – Max Gain: 362%
$48.50 Calls – Range: .25-1.50 – Max Gain: 500%

Ballard Power Systems, Inc. BLDP – Bottom-Watch

We’re always looking for a good bottom play, and one may be getting ready to present itself in the near future on BLDP. We want to place the stock on intensive bottom-watch in coming sessions, after it appears that BLDP has been the target of manipulative short-seller tactics, including a very likely erroneous class action ‘investigation’ and suit by multiple law firms. We see this type of thing all the time, and very seldom does anything come of such a situation.

What we do have is a stock that has been severely abused, beaten back to a previous multiple bottom of strong support. In a PR published today, the company has refuted the claims of its accusers, while adding that it expects to report record financials for fiscal 2017 presently. (>>View PR)

We’ll be sure to monitor BLDP for a bottom bounce which should be forthcoming at any time, and the subsequent rebound to follow, which could bring us a shot at considerable gains from current levels.

Side Note: We also want to radar Plug Power, Inc. PLUG, as it tends to trade very similarly to BLDP. We’ve traditionally looked at these plays in tandem, so we’ll keep watch over PLUG as well as it comes down to find its own bottom.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DAL, GALT Updates & More

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL  – Options Recap

We followed a range of Delta options beginning on Thursday morning, when we signaled the DAL Weekly $57-58 Calls in the wake of the company’s across-the-board Q4 earnings beat. We were glad to report on Friday that in a single session those three sets of contracts yielded gains ranging from roughly 780% to 1980%

Despite making such big moves already, Friday’s session brought more success for our tracked calls, so we wanted to open up this short trading week with a final recap on the maximum gains allowed by those excellent weekly contracts. The total ranges we observed over just two sessions were amazing.

$57 Calls – Range: .24-3.44 – Max Gain: 1313%
$57.50 Calls – Range: .14-2.96 – Max Gain: 2014%
$58 Calls – Range: .06-2.40 – Max Gain: 3900%

Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

We also want to swing back around for GALT, a stock we routinely tracked throughout 2017. It finished off that yea with a bang, and has continued its excellent run into 2018.

From lows it saw at the beginning of December at 1.28, to the new highs it made at the end of last week at 6.15 , GALT had executed a 380% increase in roughly five weeks!
