Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Reminder

Cannabis Reminder

With the cannabis counterculture holiday of 04/20 capping off this week on Friday, you can bet that our tracking of the cannabis sector is going to ramp up right along with many of these stocks.

It was back on the 4th of this month that we published an extensive list of marijuana industry stocks to track in anticipation of this event. For those outside the loop, “Four-Twenty” is a massive celebration each year on April 20th, to commemorate the cultural tradition of partaking in cannabis at 4:20pm on any given day. Cannabis companies use this as the perfect marketing ploy, and as a result, many do their highest sales of the year on the heels of this holiday.

A few of the plays we highlighted earlier this month have already begun to see appreciable moves on the chart. Take OWC Pharma (OWCP) for example. Since the 4th, the stock has increased from .20 to .30, a 50% rise in under two weeks.

We would expect to see similar, and even better gains coming from many cannabis stocks all across the board. That’s why we wanted to open up this week with a reminder to keep a close eye on anything even remotely tied to the space.

Just refresh, some of those stocks include, but are not limited to:

AGTK, HEMP, SGMD, SING, GRNE, GOHE, MCOA, MCIG, POTN, PNTV, RMHB, CANN, CBIS, ATTBF, GLDFF, GLNNF, NXTTF, MRRCF, SPRWF & CRON

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: QURE Recap & More

uniQure N.V. QURE

We included QURE in our premarket report on Thursday, after the company’s hemophilia gene therapy treatment was advanced to Phase III testing.

What followed was an enormous influx of volume, and two really solid, bullish sessions, advancing from a low of 11.55 on Thursday to a new high of 19.34 on Friday. That works out to a very respectable two-day swing of 67%

It’s the highest PPS QURE has attained since 2015, and the two sessions come in at numbers 1 and 2 highest volume days of all time, so we’d say our alert was timed with absolute precision.


Organovo Holdings, Inc. ONVO

We included ONVO in Friday morning’s extended watchlist, and it also put up a pretty good performance on the day.

From a low of 1.45, the stock traded as high as 1.80 on fairly heavy volume. We’ll want to see the stock continue to establish higher highs and higher lows as it’s coming off of its bottom.


PetMed Express, Inc. PETS

We’d like to signal a post-earnings options idea for PETS this morning, after the company set new records with its Q2 numbers. It’s gapping up significantly in the premarket, and the volume it traded on Friday leading into the release was the highest all month.  We’re going to put the PETS 11/17 $40-50 Calls on watch moving forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Ideas & More

First we’d like to apologize for our email list members for the absence of yesterday’s premarket report. Our service provider was shut down for the most of the day rendering us unable to send our daily report via email. This is an exceedingly rare event, but in these cases, you can always bookmark and visit BlueHorseshoeStocks.com just before market open, as all of our newsletters are archived there for easy reference.

Alcobra Ltd. ADHD

We did include ADHD in yesterday’s report, but since many of readers happened to miss it, we’ll back up to the next most recent mention, when we alerted the stock on September 29th.

The stock did see sub-1.00 prices that day, but took a couple more sessions to see its low of .96. Since then ADHD has been on a steady run-up, culminating in a new high of 2.17, which represented a very nice 127% move in a three week period.


PayPal Holdings, Inc. PYPL

We want to highlight a range of options for PYPL after the company posted its quarterly earnings after market close yesterday. The stock has been on a nearly continual rise all year long, and in premarket trading today, PYPL shares have rocketed into blue skies, setting a new annual high with each uptick.

As we often do in these post-earnings beat gap-up situations, we’ll identify a set of options contracts in the PYPL chain to observe as things kick off this morning, in this case, the PYPL Weekly $71-72.50 Calls* for potential quick strike trades today.

*Important: Never trade options with a weekly expiration on a Friday unless you’re an expert trader with disposable funds. It’s extremely risky.



AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ACRX

ACRX recently fell off a cliff after the FDA rejected the company’s NDA for its Dsuvia drug, however ACRX believes it can meet the accompanying guidelines to eventually submit a successful application. We did alert that event in last Friday’s report, and meanwhile, the stock is gapping up this morning after having seen and bounced off of new annual lows yesterday. 

Recovering even a fraction of the ground it lost last week, could spell significant upswings for ACRX in coming sessions.

Tempur Sealy International, Inc. TPX – Options Update

In Friday morning’s premarket report, we were providing updates on an options trading idea that we’d initially put forth on Thursday, the TPX 08/19 $70-80 Calls. The three sets of contracts had managed to yield gain opportunities ranging from 60-118% in that first session.

We also mentioned that because of the extended expiration date, we’d want to stay hot on the trail of this idea, and it was a good thing we did, because potential profits were extended with new highs in every case.

Our total observed gains over a two session span are as follows:

$70 Calls – Range: 3.00-6.10 – Max Gain: 103%
$75 Calls – Range: .90-.2.54 – Max Gain: 182%
$80 Calls – Range: .25-.60 – Max Gain: 140%

Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – Recap

As a fresh daytrading idea, we also submitted the AMZN Weekly $762.50-770 Calls for observation on Friday, and saw some nice chances for solid gains there as well, early on in the session.

All of these huge moves occurred prior to the lunch hour:

$762.50 Calls – Range: 1.56-4.57 – Max Gain: 193%
$765 Calls – Range: .88-3.46 – Max Gain: 293%
$767.50 Calls – Range: .64-3.00 – Max Gain: 368%
$770 Calls – Range:  .16-1.15 – Max Gain: 619%


Vapor Hub International, Inc. VHUB

VHUB appeared in our morning report on Friday as well, and put up a notable intraday run itself. From a low of .008, it broke out of subpenny territory and reached as high as .018. That was good for gains of up to 125% on the day.

Ideally, we’d like to see the stock maintain its penny-plus status moving forward, but technically, it would hold our interest as long as it stays above Thursday’s swing high of .0094 on any dips.


Kraig BioCraft Laboratories, Inc. KBLB

We recently came back to stock that we’ve covered a lot in the past. On July 13th we alerted the play, when it was trading as low as .0261, and on Friday, the stock hit a high of .069, marking an upswing of 164% in just over two weeks’ time.

We’ll continue to follow its progress as we kick off a new trading week, granted that it closed with strength just a tick below its high of day. In order to keep our attention, we’ll need to see it hold support at or above .04 on any forthcoming consolidations.

Blue Horseshoe Stock: TPLM Recap & More

Triangle Petroleum Corp. TPLM

The first thing we want to do this morning is congratulate ourselves for our timely call of TPLM in yesterday’s extended watchlist, as well as any of our readers who were able to take advantage.

The timing was indeed impeccable; Wednesday’s bullish session brought the stock comparatively modest gains compared to what was on the table yesterday. TPLM traded up from an early morning low of .35 and reached .63, for a highly respectable intraday run of 80%

The move occurred on volume which exceeded the monthly average by more than seven times, and the stock managed to close just a shade under its high-of-day at .615, qualifying it for continued observation as a potential momentum play. We’ll look for higher highs and higher lows as have occurred over each of the past three days.


INTREorg Systems, Inc. IORG

We most recently were discussing IORG in our report dated May 25th, subsequent to which we would observe quite a significant uptrend. As you can plainly see on the included chart below, it has been stringing together solid performances for two weeks straight.

Our observed low on the stock was .32 on the 27th, and since then it’s been off to the races, and yesterday the stock managed an impressive new high of 1.09 before closing with strength just a tick below that. For us to remain heavily interested in this play moving forward we are going to need to see it maintain support at or above the channel of previous resistance we’ve highlighted on the chart from .80-.98.


Fresh Options Ideas 

To close things out for the week, we’re going to provide a couple of options ideas with expirations set for next Friday, so this won’t carry the same warning we usually issue about trading weekly contracts at the end of the week. We are still quite intrigued with the possibilities for the following ranges of contracts in these two plays over the next several sessions:

H&R Block, Inc. HRB – 06/17 $21-23 Calls

Global Blood Therapeutics,Inc. GBT – 06/17 $20-30 Calls
