Blue Horseshoe Stocks: USAR Recap, Options Update & More

USA Restaurant Funding, Inc. USAR

We included USAR in our watchlist yesterday morning, and for the first half of the day it was off to the races with a healthy surge in PPS. We witnessed as the stock ran from its morning low of .0093, punched through the penny barrier, and reached a high of .0148. That worked out to an intraday pop of 51%

The latter portion of the session saw USAR slide back to new daily lows in the high .006-range. With such volatility present in the stock, we’ll certainly need to exercise caution, while at the same time continuing to scan for similar chart activity that could lead us to similar intraday gains moving forward.

Macy’s, Inc. M – Options Update

After serving up the chance at a 1500% intraday gain on Tuesday, our range of observed contracts, the M Weekly $41.50-45 Calls, had already served their purpose wonderfully.

We expected to see those contracts continue to make moves if the trading action in Macy’s stock allowed for it, but even we were blown away when yet another 15-bagger surfaced for the second consecutive session!

With the exception of the $44.50 and $45 Calls, which were too far from the money to offer up any real chances, every other contract in our tracked group yielded excellent opportunities for massive one-day profits:

$41.50 Calls – Trading Range:  .40-1.48 – Max Gain: 270%
$42 Calls – Trading Range: .22-1.20 – Max Gain: 445%
$42.50 Calls – Trading Range: .15-.81 – Max Gain: 440%
$43 Calls – Trading Range: .07-.48 – Max Gain: 586%
$43.50 Calls – Trading Range:  .05-.29 – Max Gain: 480%
$44 Calls – Trading Range:   .01-.16 – Max Gain: 1500%


Fresh Options Idea –, Inc. CRM

Today, we’ll look to possibly take advantage of the activity in CRM in the wake of its untraded-upon earnings beat yesterday. We’re going to zero in on the CRM Weekly $67.50-70 Calls for daytrade opportunities today and possibly even swing-trades into tomorrow.

Mexus Gold US  MXSG

We also want to provide a quick update on the success of another recent interest of ours. We’ve been tracking MXSG all month, and after seeing the stock trade as low as .0016 when we first started including it in our selections, we’ve witnessed it rocket to a new high of .008. That’s a huge 400% increase in just a few week’s time!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PSID Update, Options Recap & More

PositiveID Corp. PSID

We want to look at PSID from another angle this morning as we’re noticing a situation cropping up in international media that has the potential to affect the stock and its perceived value greatly.

For the better part of four months now, there has been a rising biological threat occurring in our own hemisphere. The Zika Virus is native to sub-Saharan Africa but is currently spreading across North, Central and South America at an alarming rate, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Some estimates have pinned the number of potential cases as high as four million, and thus far there have been reported cases in 21 countries from Mexica to the Caribbean to Brazil, where it appears to be the greatest threat at the moment (>>View Article)

. There is no cure, no treatment, and the disease is currently thought to spread exclusively via one particular species of mosquito. The ability to detect the virus quickly and without the need for brick-and-mortar lab testing could obviously be a useful tool in eventually bringing it and its effects under control, which are admittedly terrifying. Enter PositiveID and the Firefly Dx. We witnessed a monumental run from PSID back in 2014 when the Ebola scare reached global proportions (>>View Article) and we could be seeing the beginnings of a new scare with Zika.

While Zika is a relatively mild affliction by comparison, it’s one of its main side effects that is the reason for such concern. The infected person doesn’t feel much more than flu-like symptoms, and it clears itself up without treatment in a matter of days or weeks. However, the virus has been linked to a particularly horrific birth defect known as microcephaly, wherein pregnant women are contracting the virus and subsequently giving birth to infants with malformed skulls due to lack of cerebral development. Since October, there have been at roughly 4000 reported cases in Brazil alone. The link between the virus and microcephaly isn’t yet fully understood, adding to the potential for panic.

The Zika Virus story is now making headlines worldwide, and is likely to soon become a “household name” as experts are preparing for the possibility of an actual pandemic. Given that PSID’s Firefly Dx is rapidly approaching completed development, and the fact that once released it would be the only such device that could be configured to detect Zika in a matter of minutes instead of hours, it could offer medical professionals a real edge in combating this growing health emergency.

Stay tuned for future updates on PSID. If you didn’t catch Monday’s PSID Report  we suggest checking that out now.

Options Updates

We also want to congratulate any of our subscribers who caught our excellent options ideas in yesterday’s premarket report. We’ve been striking gold on the options front all week long, and yesterday served to continue that trend.

Facebook, Inc. FB – Our idea to track FB Weekly $105-110 Calls worked out incredibly well. Regardless of which of the six strike points was chosen, enormous single-session profits were there for the taking as FB stock itself traded up from the $104 to the $110-range.

$105 Calls – Trading Range: 1.07-5.45  – Max Gain: 409%
$106 Calls – Trading Range: .78-4.55 – Max Gain: 483%
$107 Calls – Trading Range: .47-3.61 – Max Gain: 668%
$108 Calls – Trading Range: .27-2.79  – Max Gain: 933%
$109 Calls – Trading Range: .15-2.13 – Max Gain: 1320%
$110 Calls – Trading Range: .07-1.40 – Max Gain: 1900%


Under Armour, Inc. UA – Our UA ideas were good as well, though they didn’t trade with quite the same liquidity and intensity as the FB options. Still, each of our monitored contracts in the range of UA Weekly $75-79.50 Calls did make appreciable intraday swings to the upside ranging from 118% ($75’s from 4.30-9.36) to 1700% in the case of the $79.50 Calls which ran from .25 to 4.62.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: YHOO Options Review & More

Yahoo, Inc. YHOO – Options

After an impressive run of tracking multiple winning stock plays in recent sessions, we got back to some options-trading ideas with YHOO yesterday morning and were quite pleased with the result.

YHOO was gapping up early on speculation of a possible sale of its core web business, and we were looking for a way to take advantage of the hustle and bustle. Our signaled range was the YHOO Weekly $34-35.50 Calls and big intraday returns in each set of contracts were there for the taking:

$34 Calls – Trading Range: .97-2.36  – Max Gain: 143%
$34.50 Calls – Trading Range: .64-1.91   – Max Gain: 198%
$35 Calls – Trading Range: .40-1.45 – Max Gain: 263%
$35.50 Calls – Trading Range: .30-1.10 – Max Gain: 266%

It’s worthwhile to mention that big gains were also possible at higher strike prices, and it became apparent very early on. We mentioned this in our chatroom*, and members had the chance at up to 120% gains as the $36 Calls ran from .36-80.

CD International, Enterprises, Inc. CDII

CDII was among a group of plays that we put on our radars at the beginning of the short holiday week that have been jumping off of the page with big gains this week. One of our valued chatroom* participants, DJ, reminded everyone yesterday prior to the opening bell that there was activity in CDII (snapshot below) and everyone had to hold onto their hats from there!

What ensued was a monster run from .0019 to .07, which represents an unreal 3584% intraday romp. The news contained the announcement of a $350M purchase order, and traders went wild trying to soak up shares in what ultimately amounted to a dream-scenario.

We’ll be very interested to continue to track the stock moving forward. After its epic run it pulled back considerably into the close and is currently gapping once again in the premarket to the .035 area. We’ll continue to be interested provided it can hold a minimum of .03 as support once things get going this morning. Ideally we’d like to see the stock break through .04 once again and maintain that as a new level of support.

*We encourage anyone who’d like to get involved with our traders chats, simply send a Skype contact request to username ‘stocksumo’. We’d be happy to let any of our faithful readers get in on the fun!

Tautachrome, Inc. TTCM

We tagged TTCM for observation in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and the stock went on to carve out a solid 30% run from .03 to .039. It pulled back only slightly into the close at .035, and did so on roughly twice the monthly average volume.  It also marked the second day of higher recorded highs and lows for the stock, so we’ll continue to track TTCM provided it can sustain that trend.
