Blue Horseshoe Stocks: VTVT New Highs & More

vTv Therapeutics, Inc. VTVT

We’ve been closely tracking VTVT since including it our report on Tuesday morning as a bottom play. As we mentioned yesterday, the timing was essentially perfect. It took off on Tuesday, and yesterday that run persisted just as we suggested it may.

The stock traded in a range from 1.24 to a new high of 2.67 yesterday, representing an intraday move of 115% From Tuesday’s low of .79 the stock has registered a two-day upswing of 238% and has easily been the NASDAQ’s top play of the week.


Onconova Therapeutics, Inc. ONTX

Speaking of bottom plays, we’re always searching for the next heavily oversold stock, and we’ve got a candidate to bring forth today in ONTX. As you can plainly view on the chart snapshot below, the stock has been heavily sold off, and the RSI is definitely giving off that heavily oversold signal.

The last time that happened the stock did mount an appreciable recovery in the ensuing weeks, so we’re going to put ONTX on extended watch.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SNAP Rocking & More

Snap, Inc. SNAP

After we signaled our interest in a range of SNAP calls yesterday morming, the stock turned in quite a performance. In fact, SNAP ended up being the top gainer on the NASDAQ for the session.

That activity paved the way for some excellent intraday moves for our designated contracts, the SNAP Weekly $16-17.50 Calls, which all more than

$16 Calls – Range: 1.15-5.00 – Max Gain: 335%
$16.50 Calls – Range: .93-4.38 – Max Gain: 371%
$17 Calls – Range: .50-4.00 – Max Gain: 700%
$17.50 Calls – Range: .45-3.51– Max Gain: 680%

We feel good about a continuation of the same kind of volatility we saw with SNAP yesterday, and will roll up our potential strike prices, and begin to monitor the SNAP Weekly $21-22.50 Calls as we finish out the week.

Fresh Options Idea:
GrubHub, Inc. GRUB – Weekly $80-85 Calls

Twitter. Inc. TWTR – Weekly $31-33 Calls


Biocept, Inc. BIOC

We want to keep tabs on BIOC after the announcement of a public offering precipitated what we would consider an over-reactionary selloff.

The company raised a sum of roughly $14.8M after offering approximately 32M shares at an exercise price of .45, along with immediately exercise-able warrants to purchase another 32M shares at .50.

We would classify it fall to a new annual low of  .30 yesterday as a kneejerk response, and with the stock being this heavily oversold, we’ll want to put this one on bottom-bounce watch immediately.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options, Bottom-Plays & More

OncoNova Therapeutics, Inc. ONTX

ONTX is hitting the scanner as a premarket gapper this morning, on the heels of a PR announcing a “pivotal” Phase III drug trial. (>>View PR)

The stock’s 1-year analyst price target of $5 doesn’t seem all that far-fetched, especially if ONTX can break past resistance in the channel between 3.00-3.25 as we’ve outlined on the following chart snapshot. Also looking ripe are the RSI which is creeping toward the 50-line, and the MACD in the midst of bullish cross.

We’ll continue to keep an eye on the stock today and into next week.


Tesla Motors, Inc. TSLA – Options Idea

To carry on our recent tradition of presenting weekly options ideas on Friday (which has yielded us some truly epic gains), we have TSLA. Remember, trading weekly contracts so close to expiration carries added risk, so we always need to exercise extra caution when doing so.

The stock is responding well to news that the company’s share offering would be increased to nearly 2.7M shares, or $642.5M. As a result of this increased activity, we’ve identified the range in which the heaviest action is likely to occur in the event of a sustained uptrend.

Our main target area will be TSLA Weekly $242.50-247.50 Calls. We’ll of course begin with the lowest strike price, which is currently in the money, and roll it up from there as needed, depending on how the day’s trading activity unfolds.


Potential Bottom-Play

Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. PSUN – We also want to quickly make mention of PSUN, which we’ve noticed has come down to new 52-week lows. As our regulars our well aware by now, these sorts of plays have been an area of extreme success lately. Just take a look at the chart to see what we mean. This is a stock that is sorely due for a rebound, and we intend to be watching closely for when that occurs.
