Blue Horseshoe Stocks: HAS Recap, Green Rush 2.0

Hasbro, Inc. HAS – Options Idea

Yesterday, after noticing the recording of new 6-month lows on HAS the day prior, coupled with a premarket earnings beat, we signaled a range of options ideas in our report.

Our targeted contracts were the HAS Weekly $79-81 Calls,with the stipulation that if the stock broke the $81-mark, that we’d correspondingly roll up our strike price a level. Based on the activity in HAS, there was literally no wrong answer, as all of the contracts mentioned provided us with a shot at excellent single-session gains.

$79 Calls – Range: 1.50-6.63 – Max Gain: 342%
$79.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.92 – Max Gain: 165%
$80 Calls – Range: .83-5.79 – Max Gain: 597%
$80.50 Calls – Range: .62-2.20 – Max Gain: 255%
$81 Calls – Range: .50-5.13 – Max Gain: 926%
$82 Calls – Range:  .24-1.25 – Max Gain: 421%

Fresh Options Idea:

With NFLX beating on earnings yesterday post-market, we’ll signal a range of contracts to watch there as well. We’re particularly interested in tracking the NFLX Weekly $117-120 Calls.



The Start of Green Rush 2.0?

A couple of years ago, when marijuana stocks first began to emerge, and the march toward legalization in many places began, we termed it a ‘Green Rush’. It was a historical few months of exponential gains for anything even remotely tied to the cannabis space.

We’ve never stopped monitoring the sector, which, compared to practically any other, is still in its infancy. Recently, we’ve been reminding our readers to keep a keen eye as well, for if all things remain equal, it’s likely that California will become a recreational marijuana state in just a few week’s time. California is the most populous state in the country, and the proposed bill is more comprehensive than anything we’ve seen in the other states where prohibition laws have been scrapped. The ripple effect from the world’s sixth largest economy legalizing marijuana and its by-products will be significant indeed.

In fact, the effect of the anticipation is already kicking the tires on what could very well be Green Rush 2.0. Out of the top 14 traded stocks on yesterday’s scanner (pictured below) all but one have some link to the pot sector. Every last one of them are stocks that we’ve talked about in the past, and all of them (and more) will be high up on our working watchlist over the next several weeks.

We warned our readers of the first Green Rush before it kicked into full swing back in 2014, and we’ve been doing our best to do the same thing in advance of the forthcoming California vote on Prop 64, which should ultimately prove to be a real game-changer.

The symbols pictured above will also serve as today’s Extended Watchlist, in addition to FLDM, a declining stock that we want to put on bottom watch.


Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Stocks Blazing & More


United Cannabis Corp. CNAB

CNAB was one of a pair of cannabis plays that we mentioned we’d be tracking toward the end of last week that ended up kicking this week’s trading off with great sessions. When we brought CNAB up in our premarket report on Thursday,

We followed up on Friday after the stock had made a 43% run from .28-.40, and asserted that we’d be on the lookout for CNAB as well as other plays in the pot sector to see increased activity in the weeks ahead. November is fast approaching, with several key cannabis initiatives coming up for a vote, including a recreational bill in California.

CNAB got off to a great start to the week today, by running from a low of .39 to a new high of .63. That worked out to an intraday move of 62%, and a total gain of  125% over our observed low from last week.

Our overall interest in the space has been ongoing from the fall of 2014, just prior to the first “Green Rush”, a historic period which saw countless stocks in the sector make exponential gains. With activity for many of these stocks picking up once again, we’ll be certain to watch plays like GRNH, ERBB, PHOT, TRTC, PZOO, and BLOZF more closely.


OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. OWCP

The other cannabis related stock that we’ve been hot on the trail of since Thursday is OWCP, and the stock has been pushing the envelope ever since.

Yesterday we were just mentioning the excellent gains it had already made from .0045 to .0111, and that we were anxious to see it continue its momentum, and it followed up with another great performance. From its daily low of .0109 OWCP went on to hit a new high of .0193, representing a daily rip of 77%, and a three-session overall increase of 329% over Thursday’s .0045 low.

Congratulations to any of our readers who caught a piece of the excellent action on OWCP. With the progress it’s already made, we’ll definitely be reserving a continued slot on our radar screens for this stock in sessions ahead.


Nova Lifestyle, Inc. NVFY

We also want to take a minute to point out a good catch we had in NVFY yesterday, which traded monster volume to the tune of roughly 20X the monthly average, and recorded a solid intraday push.

The stock traded in a range from 3.81-5.15, for a gain of 35% and held a good deal of that advance into the close at 5.08. We’ll continue to track this play and look for it to record another session of higher highs and higher lows, as it has done for the past six days straight.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Pot Stocks, ALDR Recap & More

Max Sound Corp. MAXD
 
After congratulating ourselves on observing a 112% rip from MAXD after tagging it in Thursday morning’s premarket report the stock wasn’t finished. Just as a refresher, our observed low that morning was .0033 and the high came in at .007.

We said we wanted to keep tracking the stock due to a strong close and the momentum did indeed carry over into the new trading week. After the slightest dip to .006 first thing in the morning yesterday, MAXD once again took off northward, reaching a new high at an even penny.

The activity was good for isolated intraday gains of up to 67%, and at that penny high, it represented a two-session upswing of 203% over our observed low from Thursday. As long as MAXD continues to register higher base levels of support as it has done thus far, it will retain our attention.


Alder Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. ALDR

ALDR was an inclusion from yesterday’s watchlist as well, and we saw some excellent intraday gains, especially considering its elevated price range. We watched as it traded up from a low of 21.75 and reached a subsequent high of 27.79.

That represents a single-session advance of 28% which is all the more impressive coming from a $20+ stock. The move came on roughly fifteen times the 3-month average volume, and was facilitated by news of positive migraine study results.


Also included in our report yesterday was a list of marijuana stocks we’ve tracked over a period of years, that we wanted to revisit to kick off the week, as investor interest in the cannabis space seems to be on the rise of late. In addition to HEMP, which made a small double-digit increase but had a relatively modest session by comparison, the following pair each made gains of a more substantial nature: 

GreenGro Technologies Corp. GRNH – First up, GRNH made an impressive daily swing as it traded in a range from .03-.05, for potential profits of up to 53% being made possible on the day.

Terra Tech, Inc. TRTC – The other runner was TRTC, which made a move from .33-.41, a 24% increase. We’re going to continue to reserve a spot on our radars for this one as well, especially with a post-market earnings call slated for this afternoon. (Click through to PR for participation info)


*We also have a reminder for our readers of a couple other pot plays we’ve tracked in the past that we’re going to be monitoring more closely in the light of increased sector activity: PHOT, VAPE

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Friday’s Big Movers & More

LifeLogger Technologies Corp. LOGG

LOGG ended the week on an extremely high note, which was particularly impressive considering the fact that we had already witnessed a fantastic 91% pop from .0995-.19 subsequent to our mention of it in Thursday’s morning report.

The stock would follow up one great performance with another, running from an early low of .17 to a new high of .30 on Friday morning. It represented an intraday run of 76%, and a two-day overall rise amounting to 202% Our heartiest congratulations to any of our readers who were along for the ride on this one!

We’ll be sure to keep tracking LOGG for as long as its activity continues to provide these excellent intraday chances.


Encompass Compliance Corp. ENCC

ENCC turned out to be our top-gaining prospect of the day on Friday  when all was said and done. After slowly ramping up from its low of .012 over the course of the morning, the stock suddenly took off in the last hour, streaking to a high of .025.

The move amounted to an intraday increase of 108% and ENCC closed at its high point as well, so we’ll definitely want to assume our standard position for instances such as these, monitoring the stock for continued momentum, in addition to dip-and-rip patterns that could lead to further opportunities down the road.


PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. PCSV

On Friday, we classed PCSV as a stock to watch over the longer-term, and while that’s still the case, it also produced immediate results of an impressive nature.

We witnessed the stock trading in a range from .025-.045, which amounted to a respectable 80% intraday move.  As previously stated, we feel the company’s recent entry into the fledgling sport of competitive drone racing warrants extended observation of this stock. (>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LOGG, PHOT Reviews & Much More

LifeLogger Technologies Corp. LOGG

We’ve been tracking LOGG since bringing it to light in a report last week and even though it made some decent gains leading up to yesterday, that’s when the stock really kicked things into high gear.

LOGG exploded from an early low of .0995 and continuously pushed to new highs throughout the course of the day, reaching its high of .19 just prior to the close, for an excellent chance at intraday gains of up to 91% The stock also traded better than six times its monthly average volume, so we’ll want to closely monitor its activity early on today for its dip-and-rip potential.


Growlife, Inc. PHOT

PHOT had been bouncing around in a rough channel between the .012 and two-cent levels since we last tagged the stock for observation earlier this month. Right from the outset yesterday the stock’s bullish activity raised the alarms, with the announcement that PHOT would be relisting on the Bulletin Board as well as pursuing an uplisting to the OTCQX. (>>View PR)

The result of the wave of positive attention the PR garnered was a massive intraday run to the tune of 375% (.012-.057) that will keep us on alert as we close out the week for the possibility of a brief consolidation followed up by a potential bounceplay.


Cell Therapeutics, Inc. CTIC

We’ve been tracking CTIC recently, and in addition to stringing together higher highs and higher lows in each of the past four sessions wherein it has roughly doubled in price, the stock appears to be gearing up to fill a rather sizable gap on its chart, which we’ve pointed out below.


Long-Term Watchlist

PCS Edventures!.com, Inc. PCSV

We like the future potential of the space PCSV has just entered into with its acquisition of a racing drone company. (PR Below) We’ll be placing PCSV on our longer-term radars as a result of this announcement.

While drone racing is a relatively new ‘sport’ that is still in its infancy, big plans for a national drone racing league have been backed financially by billionaire Steve Ross, who is most commonly known as the owner of the Miami Dolphins. (>>View Article)

Elio Motors, Inc. ELIO

We want to place a longer-term watch on newly-trading ELIO as well. Many of our readers will have heard of this exciting startup that is undergoing plans to market a three-wheeled (pictured below) that boasts more than 80mpg fuel efficiency and a retail price tag of less than $7,000.

With Americans looking to economize any way they can these days, the industry disruption potential of a low-cost, high-efficiency personal transport stripped of unnecessary bells and whistles is intriguing to say the least. The backstory behind this one is irresistible (Visit ElioMotors.com to learn more), so we’ll be very interested to follow along in the early days of the stock’s trading to see how ELIO establishes its footing.


Bonus Options Ideas

We’ll be looking for possible daytrading opportunities with Weekly VXX $26-27.50 Calls, and Weekly SPY $193-190 Puts based on the current atmosphere in the markets.

*Pertaining to both of the preceding ideas, remember to always consider the inherent elevated risk associated with trading weekly options contracts on a Friday!
