Multiple Thousand+ Percent Gainers!

Alpine 4 Technologies, Inc. ALPP 

We’ve been tagging ALPP in our extended watchlist for some time, and as we mentioned in last Thursday’s morning report, we have been on the trail of this stock since November 18th, at which time it was trading as low as .0735.

This week, we’ve continued to follow the incredible rise of ALPP, which soared to a new high of 4.79, marking an unreal upswing of 6417% in the time we’ve been talking about the stock. Even if you had only caught our update on Thursday, you still could have owned ALPP for 2.01/share, and been up as much as 138% at the new high.


Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc. AITX 

Speaking of thousand-percent gainers, we have been following AITX closely since our report just a couple of weeks ago on the 15th. The very next day it saw shares change hands for as little as .002, and we have now witnessed as it ran to a new high of .045. That represents a ten trading day swing of 2150%

As we were just mentioning yesterday morning, OTC plays like these are currently a large part of our successful calls along with plenty of diverse options ideas. It’s also why we implore our readers to add our Extended Watchlists to their own watchlists each morning, as gems like these get unearthed more often than you’d think!


Fresh Options Ideas: 

We are currently in an extreme earnings dry spell that figures to last until the week of January 18th, when the calendar begins to get busy again. In the meantime, there are still plenty of potential plays out there, and here’s what we dug up today:

BABA Weekly $240-245 Calls
NVAX 01/15 $127-130 Calls


Extended Watchlist:
SEII, HPMM, TTOO, GAXY, AABB, ONCI, XALL, APRE

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMRS, TTOO Recaps & More

 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. CBRL

We were looking at a favorable setup on the CBRL chart along with a premarket earning beat in yesterday morning’s report, and we floated a couple of options ideas that worked out pretty well early on in the session.

We had the CBRL Weekly $150 & 151.50 Calls as well as the 10/20 $155 Calls on watch, and both our short -term and longer-term ideas provided excellent chances for multi-bag gains on the day.

The Weekly $150’s traded in a range from 1.01-4.00 (+296%), while the
$151.50’s ran from 1.10-2.79, gaining 154% intraday. Even the longer-term idea, the 10/20 $155’s more than doubled on the day, running 175% from 1.09-3.00.


Amyris, Inc. AMRS

We wanted to circle back for AMRS today to recap the past month of its performance on the chart. We put this play on bottom-watch on the morning of  August 15th, and as it turns out, our timing was pretty good. It was just a couple of sessions later when we observed a low of 1.86  in the stock, and it’s been mostly bullish moves since then.

Yesterday, AMRS hit a new high of 3.84, marking an overall increase of 106% in matter of just one month’s time. If the stock can manage to break its previous resistance around the 4.30 area, things could get really interesting.

Added Note:

T2 Biosystems, Inc. TTOO – In that same report from August 15th we were discussing the run we had seen from TTOO from 2.53 to its highs at the time just over $4. It too hit an impressive new high yesterday, at 6.99. That works out to a one month increase of 176%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Idea & More

Acacia Research Corp. ACTG

Pretty much the entirety of 2017 has been some tough sledding for ACTG, which was in an overall downtrend since last winter when it was trading at more than twice its current value.

That all seemed to change around midway through last month, as the stock has managed to establish a good rebound effort for several sessions. In the premarket the stock has broken previous resistance which coincided with the 50DMA (3.63) and could make a move to fill that gao we’ve pointed out on the chart below.

We’ll put the stock on watch in the days and weeks ahead as we kick off this holiday-shortened trading week.


Insmed, Inc. INSM

After posting key data reflecting positive top-line results in its Phase III lung disease treatment study, INSM has exploded into the blue sky this morning. The stock has rapidly gained more than twice its value in premarket trading, and whenever we come across a situation like this, we begin to look for the options contracts that could give us the best opportunity for rapid gains.

We think that the INSM 09/15 $27-30 Calls could stand to see some nice activity if the stock continues the blue-sky breakout we’ve witnessed so far.
