Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DMPI Recap & More

Del Mar Pharmaceuticals, Inc . DMPI

We wanted to swing back around to recap the solid performance of DMPI since we tagged it the day after the Christmas break a couple of weeks back.

It was just a couple sessions later that the stock would find support at .96, and begin a pretty substantial run up the chart. It was helped along by the last six consecutive sessions registering higher base levels of support as the stock has crept all the way up to a high of 1.75, recorded on Friday.

That worked out to a move of 82% in less than two trading weeks, while volume over the same period has been heightened. The high coincided with the current 200DMA, so we’ll look for DMPI to possibly crack that 1.75 mark and head for blue skies.



Kohls Corp KSS

We want to include an options idea for Kohls as we kick off the first full trading week of 2018, on the heels of a solid earnings report.

The company posted strong sales for the holiday season, while giving a significant boost to full year guidance. Shares jumped accordingly in premarket trading, and we are going to be waiting with some targeted weekly contracts to coincide with the activity. We’re going to signal and track the KSS Weekly $58-60 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DMTX Review, Options & More

Dimension Therapeutics, Inc. DMTX

We alerted on DMTX after a sizable gap-up few weeks back on the morning of August 25th. That day we would observe a low of 2.90 in the stock, and it never looked back.

Throughout the month of September the stock has mostly been stair-stepping its way up in steady fashion, but news of an unsolicited buyout offer (@5.50/share) kicked this play into a much higher gear to start things off this week, and yesterday DMTX attained a high of 5.90.

That works out to a three-week double-bag swing of 103% We wouldn’t expect to see the stock travel much higher, certainly not without confirmation or further details on a proposal, but will still keep our eyes open for further activity after a very strong session yesterday.


Fresh Options Ideas

We’ve got a pair of options possibilities¬† to present this morning. Yesterday’s market sentiment was exceedingly bullish, with more than 65% of NASDAQ quoted stocks trading at or above their 50-day moving averages.

Today, better than expected numbers on Housing Starts and Building Permits were reported, which could assist in keeping the momentum moving.

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – For a direct market analog, we generally turn to the SPY, having had immense success with it on several separate occasions in the past. We’re going to signal the SPY Weekly $249.50 & $250 Calls for observation as we approach midweek.
_____

The Kroger Co. KR – We’re also noticing a heck of a bottom setup on KR. A strong multiple bottom signal showing the stock at a solid support level, and a couple of gaps to the upside on the chart leaves us looking at a pair of longer-term contracts. We’re going to place the KR 11/17 $23 & $24 Calls on watch in the event of a recovery for Kroger.
