Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MTBC Recap & More

Medical Transcription Billing Corp. MTBC

We caught wind of a potential opportunity in MTBC yesterday morning on a routine scan, and we included it in our extended wathclist for the day. We’re glad that we did, because it turned out to be our top performer for the session!

From a low of 1.43 MTBC shot to a high of 2.87 for an early intraday rip of 101% The stock traded massive volume to the tune of fourteen times the monthly average, while holding the vast majority of its daily gain into the close at 2.40. Based on those factors, we’re very interested to continue tracking MTBC over the course of the next few sessions.

While it does appear overbought at the moment, having been in a bullish pattern for a week now, the stock is currently in blue skies, so there’s no telling where this run might end. One thing’s for sure, when it does begin to pull back off of these impressive new highs, we’ll be waiting in the wings for a subsequent dip-and-rip.

Ocwen Financial Corp. OCN

Yesterday morning we pointed out that OCN was looking massively oversold after falling off a cliff a couple of weeks ago. We also alluded to the fact that it was gapping up significantly in the premarket.

Our vigilance paid off instantly as the stock quickly turned into the bottom bouncer we had it figured for, running 30% intraday from 2.60 to 3.38 on roughly six times the 30-day average. Even if it just returned to its 200DMA, it would spell further gains of 38% so we’ll continue to keep an eye on OCN.


Speaking of bottom-plays, we’re taking notice of NXTD this morning as the stock is gapping up past its current 50DMA of 1.86 in the premarket.

Prior to today it had already begun to bear the look of a stock that was ripening for a rebound, and we’re going to want to pay close attention to its progress in sessions to come looking for the recording of higher highs and higher lows.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMLH Update, Options Idea

American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH

After watching it run more than 2000% several weeks ago, we began tracking AMLH’s subsequent consolidation and rebound, and the results have been quite pleasing to this point. On Thursday morning, we recapped the stock’s progress to that point as it bounced and ran from .0029-.007 (141%). We also said we’d be on the lookout for the stock to break that resistance at .007, and on Friday, that’s just what it did.

AMLH traded in a daily range from .0058 to .0093, which goes down as an intraday jump of 60%, and a big-time increase of 220% over the previous week’s swing low.

Our regular readers will recall that AMLH started out as a call from our daily live trader’s chatroom on March 27th*, and from the low we witnessed at that time (.0003) this stock has posted an astonishing 3000% upswing!

DISH Network Corp. DISH – Options Idea

We noticed that not only is DISH looking relatively toppy on the chart at the moment, as you can see on the snapshot below, but this morning the company also had a rather ugly earnings release. It included declines in revenue and profits,not to mention more subscriber loss.

We don’t often jump to the bearish side of the fence with our ideas, but in this case it seems appropriate. We’re going to have the DISH 05/12 $62-60 Puts on our radar to take advantage of what could be a significant backslide over the next several sessions.

Ocwen Financial Corp. OCN
& First NBC Bank Holding Co. FNBC

We want to put this pair of finance plays on watch after noticing that both stocks have been beaten back quite a bit over a relatively short period of time.

In the case of OCN, the stock is massively oversold after falling off a cliff a couple of weeks ago, but began to bounce last week, and is gapping up significantly in the premarket.

FNBC is actually gapping down heavily (roughly 90%) in the premarket, so we’ll have to monitor this one for its bottom, but after it’s reached we could in in for a heck of a bounce here as well.

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

Despite market-wide turmoil over Britain’s “Brexit” vote, we saw fit to target a range of SPY options for observation in Friday morning’s premarket report. Our highlighted contracts were the SPY Weekly $200-205 Calls and with the exception of the lower denominations, which were were too far into the money to see any solid gain opportunities, they worked out quite well.

Some intraday volatility was the primary element which allowed quick-fingered traders to reap instant rewards from all but two of the contracts in the $205-202 Put-range. The potential gains were as follows:

$205 Puts – Trading Range:  .77-2.43 – Max Gain: 215%
$204 Puts* – Trading Range: 1.20-3.05 – Max Gain: 154%
$203.50 Puts* – Trading Range: 1.55-3.15 – Max Gain: 103%
$203 Puts* – Trading Range: 1.82-3.86 – Max Gain: 112%
$202 Puts – Trading Range: 2.87-4.88 – Max Gain: 70%

*Contracts labeled with an asterisk also saw a late day run of OVER 200% EACH, in addition to the initial moves listed above!

New Columbia Resources, Inc. NEWC

Today we’re circling back around to a play we have tracked in the past. Things have been mostly quiet for NEWC this year, with the exception of a massive run from the .007-range up as a high as a nickel. Since that time, leading up to last week, the stock had been under consistent consolidation. Tuesday, it began to experience a bounce that once again has our interest focused upon this cannabis-related play.

Due to the apparent impending end of over five decades of internal hostilities in Columbia, the company has commented on a bolstered outlook for its projects (both cannabis and mining) in the South American nation. Should the resolution be ratified in an upcoming referendum, it could mean good things for the future of NEWC, and accordingly, its stock.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Winning TSLA Calls, VGGL Recap & More

Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – Options

On Friday we mentioned some longer-term options-trading ideas for TSLA Calls, and it didn’t take more than a couple trading days for them to bear fruit.

As our regular readers are aware by now, we often like to monitor an entire range of strike prices following a key development, and TSLA’s earnings release last midweek provided the fuel for our success in this case. We pointed to 05/22 $230-240 Calls, and every set of contracts in that range made a sizable run from their lows on Friday to impressive highs during yesterday’s session. Here’s a breakdown of their performances:

$230 Calls  – Friday’s Low: 6.85 – Yesterday’s High: 13.50 (Closed: 10.30) – Max Gain: 97%

$232.50 Calls  – Friday’s Low: 5.32 – Yesterday’s High: 11.25 (Closed: 8.65) – Max Gain: 111%

$235 Calls  – Friday’s Low: 5.96 – Yesterday’s High: 10.60 (Closed: 8.70) – Max Gain: 78%

$237.50 Calls  – Friday’s Low: 3.16 – Yesterday’s High: 7.60 (Closed: 5.00) – Max Gain: 140%

$240 Calls  – Friday’s Low: 3.84 – Yesterday’s High: 7.50 (Closed: 5.75) – Max Gain: 95%

We are pleased with the progress we’ve seen thus far in these contracts, and we’re interested to see what the next nine trading days will bring leading up to their expiration.

Viggle, Inc. VGGL

Our next order of business this morning is to point out the solid move made by VGGL after we included the stock in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist. Catalyzed by favorable quarterly results (link below), it traded in a range from 3.00 to 4.24; a very respectable intraday move of 41%.

The spike came on roughly 25X the 3-month average volume and VGGL managed to close in the mid-3.70′s, holding the majority of its daily gains. Whenever we see a confluence of these two phenomena, we always want to keep our eyes peeled for a carryover of momentum into subsequent sessions.

Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

Our longer-term subscribers might remember the epic run we tracked in PLUG when we caught the stock coming off its all-time lows near a dime back in 2013. The lowest price we observed following our initiation of coverage on this play was .135 on 02/28/13. It led us on a long and exciting journey to a high of 11.72 nearly a year later, and from then on has held a spot on our list of all-time best calls.

More recently, in 2015, PLUG has been on an overall downtrend that carried the stock to new annual low of 2.32. Yesterday, we observed PLUG coming up off of those lows and hitting a high of 2.65, so we’re going to re-radar this as a potential recovery play. If it can crack through the 50DMA of 2.66, we could be in line to see a more sustained uptrend.

We’ve illustrated the key resistance points on the following chart snapshot:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PZOO News, Options & More

Voltari Corp. VLTC

Leading into this week, VLTC had been under consolidation following its epic run to new 52-week highs earlier in April. On Wednesday, the stock ultimately found support at 8.14 and by the time it had reached its daily high yesterday the stock had rebounded back to 11.65, a 43% swing.

VLTC did maintain the majority of its daily gains into the close yesterday. and this morning the stock is gapping up quite substantially with a premarket high of 12.34 already having printed.

There appears to be a key area of resistance around $14, and we’ll want to see VLTC hold support at or above its recent swing low of 8.14 on any pullbacks, in order to keep our interest.

Fresh Options Ideas:

We’ve got a few candidates for potential options trades as we close out the week. Please note that we’re referring to Weekly Calls which are on the cusp of expiration, so these would be for quick-trigger daytrades only. For swing trades into next week, one could look at 05/08 or 05/15 contracts.

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We want to touch base with PZOO this morning as we’re noticing a new PR hitting the wires. The stock consolidated for the first time in nearly a month this week, coming down off its recent high of .0204. Yesterday it held a penny as support and, we’ll want to see the stock maintain above that level as the week draws to a close.
