Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays, Options & More

Celadon Group, Inc. CGI

We’ve been seeing a fair bit of bottom-bouncers running across our desks this week, and CGI is the latest to grab our attention. What we’ve got here is a very enticing chart with just about everything we look for in a potential bottom play.

The stock is beginning to come off of being massively oversold, has set higher lows and higher highs for each of the last three sessions, and has a sizable gap to fill to the upside. We also have a MACD that appears as if a bullish cross could be forthcoming, so we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CGI this week.

Two other stocks on our bottom watchlist, California Resources Corp. and CRC Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL will remain there. We signaled these two just yesterday, and despite recording only marginal gains on the day, we still want to leave them a spot on our radar as well.



Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea

Speaking of bottom-bouncers, VRX recently rebounded off of new 52-week lows, and is hitting our scanners this morning.  With a pleasing Q1 earnings call which included solid boosts in profits for the quarter as well as reinforced guidance for the remainder of the year, VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.

We want to formulate an options idea to coincide with the increased activity and expected price action in a stock in this position. We’ve seen this sort of pattern many times before, and if things play out similarly here, the VRX Weekly $10.50-12 Calls could be in line to see considerable gains.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Yesterday’s Major Movers & More

It was a great start to the 2017 trading year yesterday, with multiple movers offering up opportunities for solid single-session gains. In addition to a handful of the stocks we were watching streaking their way upward, our options idea also fared well, with the markets in general kicking off the year on a strong note.

Mountain High Acquisitions Corp. MYHI – First up is MYHI, which exhibited a big breakout from a low of  .09 and running as high as .1745. That was good for the largest intraday gain, coming in at 94% and occurring on considerable volume.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation with MYHI, and possibly be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip pattern. Should the stock briefly come down off of these highs, there could be another opportunity to time the subsequent bounce.

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV – ORRV has continuously pushed the envelope since we first began talking about it a week ago today and yesterday was no exception. We observed yet another big run, with the stock jumping from .0019 to a new high of .0036. That goes down as an intraday pop of 89%, and extends our observed range on this play inside a week by a considerable margin.

As of the .0005 we witnessed last week, yesterday’s top mark represented a total upswing of 620%

*Side Note: Anyone who participates in our daily traders chats could have gotten in even lower the previous day, at .0003, from which point yesterday’s new high marked a move of 1100%  *Send a Skype contact request to “stocksumo” to participate in our in-session traders chats!

Hiru Corp HIRU – Another excellent play was HIRU, which started the day off at a low of .0008 and persisted with a steady climb throughout the session to wind up closing at its high of day, at .0013.

That was a daily increase of  63% and of course, anytime we see a stock end the session at its high, we always want to be on the lookout for continued momentum.


ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY

Suspecting that the bullish premarket sentiment would spill over into yesterday’s trading session, we signaled some options in the SVXY chain, namely the SVXY Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.

While we didn’t sweep the range in terms of hefty gains, there was considerable open interest in two sets which allowed for significant profits- the $94 and $95 Calls. The $94′s ran from  2.30-3.64 (+58%), and the $95′s traded up from 1.75 as high as 3.39 (+94%)

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF – Fresh Options Idea

We want to signal a range of options ideas for ANF, which is just coming off of its annual lows, and showing some signs of a reversal.

We’ll want to be ready to take advantage of a recovery, by using the ANF 02/17 $12-15 Calls, which gives us several weeks for a rebound to materialize. That being said, the gain opportunities could come sooner rather than later, so we want to be mindful of that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off the New Year

Good Morning Traders, and Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a pleasant holiday season, but now that the new year has begun, we also hope everyone’s ready to dive right back in and take 2017 by the horns! We’re looking forward to another year of market action and tracking hot plays whether they be pennies, big boards, options, or whatever! Wherever we see even the slightest chance for a big opportunity we’ll be there, so join us- the 2017 trading year starts now!


Continued Cannabis Sector Surges

We’ve been all over the cannabis space for years, but the scope and intensity of our observation has been decidedly more focused in past weeks and months.  On Sunday, legalized recreational marijuana took effect in California and elsewhere, so you can all expect that the pot sector will be an area of continued interest as the industry as a whole is set to undergo huge growth and change in coming months.

We had a few reminders appear in Friday’s premarket report from among the vast group of pot plays we’ve tracked over an extremely long period at this point. PHOT and VAPE, two old favorites, both followed that up with solid intraday performances to close out 2016.

PHOT posted a nice intraday move from .0167-.0198 (+19%), while VAPE ran from .0122-.0167 (+37%).  We’ll continue to track these and other cannabis stocks, including but not limited to: MCOA, HEMP, MCIG, GRNH, TRTC, MYDX, MYHI, CHIT


More Updates:

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV - We began mentioning ORRV on Wednesday, and subsequently would witness a low of .0005. Friday the stock posted a huge finish to the year, running up to a new high of .00271. That marked a three-session swing of 442%  We’re going to be keeping an eye peeled for the possibility of continued momentum.

ERF Wireless, Inc. ERFB – Our first tag of ERFB came three Friday’s ago, at which time we would observe a low of .0013. It too broke out to new high on Friday, reaching .02. From our initial low that works out to an overall increase of 54% More gains could be on the horizon in this case as well, so we’ll be watching.


 Vanguard Natural Resources, Inc. VNR

We also want to put VNR on our radars as we kick things off on this short week. We’ve included a snapshot below and as you can see, a triple-bottom formation is currently in effect. We are going to be watching for a reversal, which, if the last couple of cycles are any indicator, could lead to a pretty significant PPS increase.


ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY

With the markets as a whole appearing to want to open up 2017 on a high note, we’re going to signal a range of bullish options calls for the SVXY ETF. We’ll be monitoring the SVXY Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Move for ORRV & More

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV

On Wednesday, we were mentioning ORRV, and how we’d seen it make a nice move after discussing it in our traders chat the day before. We hinted at the possibility of seeing further gains from this volatile mover, and yesterday provided a truly excellent opportunity to make some fast money, just as we’d hoped.

ORRV traded as low as .0005 in the morning before ripping its way to a daily high of .0022, which marks a single-session run of  340% so congratulations to anyone who noticed our alert and reaped the benefits.

Moving forward we’ll treat this play like any other that has been making solid strides to the upside, looking for it to maintain its uptrend with higher highs and higher lows.



Fresh Options Ideas


NVidia Corp. NVDA
- This has been 2016′s top performer on the S&P 500, and one that we’ve visited in our reports on occasion. Despite already being up over 200% on the year, we like the feel of the reversal that occurred yesterday after it previously had appeared that a downturn was setting up. Instead shares of NVDA pressed upward, and the stock is gapping up considerably in premarket trading today.

We’re going to focus upon the NVDA Weekly $112-115 Calls to try to turn a quick profit today.

_____

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD – We also want to look at one of NVDA’s direct competitors, which has also been building momentum on the chart, in a general uptrend since the middle of October. Here we’re going to want to monitor the activity in the AMD Weekly $11-12 Calls.

CAUTION: Never trade weekly options contracts on a Friday if you aren’t an expert trader. These are high-risk/high-reward style plays that are not for the faint of heart, or the inexperienced!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Idea & More

MyDx, Inc. MYDX

Trading in general was greatly subdued on Wednesday in comparison to Tuesday’s fast start to the short week, but MYDX was one of a couple significant movers among our mentions in yesterday’s report.

The stock traded in a range from .0036 up to .0064, which works out to an intraday push of 78% and it came on well over twice the monthly average volume.

Prior to this week, the stock had been consolidating heavily for quite a long period of time, and has now strung together two really solid sessions after registering a new 52-low on Tuesday morning. We’ll continue to monitor this play for the recording of higher highs and higher lows; another strong performance today would qualify it for full-on multi-day runner status.


420 Property Management, Inc. FTPM

Also coming off of yesterday’s report to have a respectable session was FTPM. This is one of the cannabis related plays that we tracked over huge gains back in October as the pre-election marijuana hype was reaching a fever pitch. With the sector seeing a comparatively mild yet still strong resurgence this week, FTPM is among those stocks reaping the short-term benefits.

We witnessed it run from a low of .0011 to .0019 yesterday on more than twice the average volume, which works out to an intraday pop of 72%  Like the aforementioned play, we’ll want to see the stock logging higher highs and higher lows for the remainder of the week.


American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. AEO

It’s been roughly a month since we dabbled in any AEO options, and we wanted to formulate an idea this morning granted the fact that the AEO chart is presently at a bottom and beginning to look ripe for a recovery.

Accordingly, we’d like to signal a range of extended-term options contracts in the AEO chain to put on watch in the days and weeks ahead. Unlike last month, when we went bearish with some puts after a mixed earnings release, this time we’re going the other way with the AEO 01/27 $15.50-16.50 Calls. With just under a month until expiration, it gives the stock plenty of time to make its move, so we’ll be watching closely.
