FRESH IDEAS:

Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN – With Q4 earnings season in full swing, we will include another options idea based on the early activity in AMZN, which posted disappointing figures in its post-market release yesterday.

Here we’re going to be highlighting a range of puts that we feel stand to make decent gains, should AMZN’s fortunes play out as we suspect they might today. The targets we want to place on watch are going to be the AMZN Weekly $810-800 Puts.

______

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – On the bullish side of things, solid jobs numbers could very well lead to an overall uptrend for the markets as a whole, so we’re going to want to designate an a corresponding idea for that.

Generally, we like to use the SPY as a market analog, so we’re going to signal a range of SPY calls to try to take advantage of the current conditions. Our target range here will be the SPY Weekly $227.50-229 Calls.


Cerulean Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CERU

We want to keep our eyes on CERU as we close out the week, and into next week, as the stock is currently boasting a chart that looks as if it could break out at any moment.

As you can see, the stock has been gradually building a higher base of support off of annual lows recorded in the fall, and yesterday, really started to make a bullish move. We’re seeing a slight gap-up this morning to just below the resistance channel between 1.20 and 1.30. As we’ve pointed out below, there is a huge gap on the chart to the upside, and a breach of that channel would begin to fill it in.

This is a stock that we feel could easily make a 100% move inside of the next few sessions, so we will want to watch carefully.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap, Bottom-Watchlist

Options Updates

We’ve signaled a number of options ideas recently, and would like to take an opportunity this morning to go over the types of gains that they’ve produced this week. Each of them has an extended term remaining until expiration and will continue to remain on our wathlist moving forward.

On Monday we presented the PODD 01/20 $35 Calls for observation, and in the ensuing two sessions, we’ve witnessed a solid 48% move from 2.00 up to 2.95.

Yesterday, we added the GDDY 01/20 $36 Calls into the mix, and saw a fantastic first-day performance out of those. From a low of .85, they ran as high as 1.75, for a single session double-bag rip of 106%
_____

Added Options Notes: Ideas from last week that have yet to make their moves but are still on our watchlist include the TWTR 01/20 $19 and $20 Calls, as well as the ITUB 01/20 $11 Calls. With six weeks remaining until expiration, there’s still plenty of time for these play to display the activity we’re after.


Bottom Watchlist

It’s tax loss selling season as the year’s-end holidays rapidly approach, and that means increased liquidity for many stocks. It’s also a time when we look for the increased activity as a catalyst for bargain basement type plays to see nice moves off of their 52-lows. So here are a handful of stocks trading at or near their annual low points to watch for possible bottom bounces over the next few weeks:

Bravo Multinational, Inc. BRVO

Orbital Tracking Corp. TRKK

Electronic Cigarettes International Group, Inc. ECIG

Propanc Health Group, Inc. PPCH

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GBSN Review, Options Update & More


SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Recap

Our first options idea of this short week turned out to be a rousing success by all accounts. We noted the change in the tides regarding a general market rebound aided by a healthy surge for oil, and proposed a range of weekly contracts in the SPY to help us leverage some gain opportunities out of those conditions. We signaled our interest in the SPY Weekly $188-191 Calls and were met with some very good chances as the SPY itself steadily pushed from 187.63 to 189.81, closing very close to that high mark.

As a result, all eight of our observed contracts enjoyed significant surges. We’ll simply provide a range of the possible gains in the interest of time. The $188 Calls traded up from 1.64-2.65  for gains of up to 72% while at the other end of the spectrum, the $191′s ran 123% from .39-.87. Again- commensurate gains were available anywhere in that $188-191 Range. 

This morning it appears as if those figures will be extended as the SPY once again gaps up in the premarket, having already breached into the $190′s; we’ll be on the lookout for a possible dip-and-rip.  Another boost for the markets today would mark the first three-day rally of 2016.


Great Basin Scientific, Inc. GBSN

We had been passively monitoring GBSN for a bottom for quite some time when we finally decided to make mention of it in our morning report yesterday. The stock was in an overall downtrend for many months leading up to its all-time low which was recorded just last month.

We seem to have brought GBSN back into the fold at a very opportune moment, as yesterday marked one the stock’s largest single-session gains of the year so far. From its morning low of .1951, we watched as it shot to a daily high of .2698 which hashes out to a healthy intraday day pop of 38% on double its 3-month average volume.

Ideally we’d like to see GBSN maintain support above yesterday’s swing low while attempting to test the key area of current resistance at a previous swing high of .33.


Rockwell Medical, Inc. RMTI 

Another notable mover from yesterday’s session is RMTI, which managed a strong push over the first couple hours of trading. The stock traded from a daily low of 6.90 on up to 8.63 on approximately four times its 3-month average volume, which represented a respectable 25% move up.

We’ll continue to keep an eye on RMTI moving forward, especially in light of the interesting PR to hit wires this morning alluding to a potentially lucrative agreement that puts the company in line to market its treatment for end-stage renal and chronic kidney diseases in China.


Other Notable Gainers

Provision Holding, Inc. PVHO

We tagged PVHO for observation in our report dated a week ago today, meaning it took just four sessions for this idea to yield a great opportunity for a lucrative swing-trade. We observed a low of .084 subsequent to that alert and the stock hasn’t looked back since. It has set higher highs in each ensuing session, culminating in yesterday’s high of .18. That marked a move of 114% so cheers to anyone who was along for the ride!

___

Horsehead Holding Corp. ZINC(Q)

We introduced ZINCQ as ZINC a couple of weeks ago before the Q was appended, and despite the bankruptcy status, we’ve seen quite the move out of the stock.

We showed up slightly early to the party, introducing it as a bottom-watch play on the first of this month, but that just ensured that we had a chance to position ourselves before the fun began. Our observed low subsequent to that initial alert was .06 just a couple days hence, and that eventually gave way to yesterday’s impressive new high of .335, which marks an epic 458% run.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SVTE, SALE Updates & More

Service Team, Inc. SVTE

We placed SVTE on watch in Tuesday morning‘s report and have been rewarded with an amazing two-day run that has carried it from subpenny territory, straight into Pennyland.

The move we observed on Tuesday was a relatively modest 41% from the low of .0039 to the closing price of .0055, but yesterday, things really kicked into high gear.

SVTE opened up at that .0055 price-point and took off like a bat out of hell, reaching its impressive new high of .0188 shortly before 1PM. It marked an excellent intraday upswing of 242%, and boosted our two-session observed range to a laudable 382% Cheers to anyone who caught a piece of the action!


Pocket Games, Inc. PKGM

We’ve been exceedingly pleased with PKGM’s performance in the couple of weeks we’ve been tracking the stock, after having observed more than a 560% swing.

Yesterday brought yet another chance to make quick-strike profits off of this play from the outset of the session, as it quickly performed a dip-and-rip from the daily low of .0128 to the high of .0195 (+52%) in the first half hour of trading.

A secondary opportunity was afforded to those that continued to watch intently as PKGM came down to find support and make a solid rebound from .014 back to .018 in the closing minutes of the session. That amounted to an added 29% swing, and the stock closed just a tick below at .017. We’ll look for it to maintain support above yesterday’s swing-low in order for it to keep our interest moving forward.


RetailMeNot, Inc. SALE

We also want to provide a quick update on SALE, which we tagged as a bottom-watch play in yesterday’s premarket report. After taking an absolute beating over a poor earnings release, our timing in calling the bottom couldn’t have been much better as is evident on the snapshot below.

We’ve had luck in the past with stocks in these situations where investor disappointment leads to a knee-jerk selloff.  We’re going to leave SALE on our radars in the sessions to come, on the possibility that a protracted rebound is forthcoming.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Tuesday’s Stellar Session & More

Tuesday’s Winning Selections

Yesterday, we had just about the most successful day of 2016 so far in terms of the sheer number of red-hot movers we tagged in our premarket report. We went from the monumental options success of earlier sessions, to spotting some prime opportunities in the stock arena.

Agritek Holdings, Inc. AGTK

We let our readers know they could expect “some potential bounceplay action” from AGTK yesterday after we had tracked it over a 100% pop (.003-.006) and subsequent pullback toward the end of the previous session. We got exactly the type of behavior we expected from the stock, as AGTK piled on another excellent performance.

The stock traded in a daily range from .0032-.0048 for a solid 50% intraday surge, and unlike the previous day’s activity, it managed to hold a vast majority of the day’s advance into the close.

__________

Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG

DNRG has appeared in our reports repeatedly in the past and after re-tagging it in yesterday’s watchlist, we were pleased to see the subsequent activity in the stock. It traded up from a daily low of .024, going to hit .035 for a 46% intraday upswing.

Like the aforementioned play, it too demonstrated strength into the market close, ending on its high-of-day and thus qualifying it to remain on our radars as a possible momentum play.

__________

Pocket Games, Inc. PKGM

No sooner than we got the chance to congratulate readers who caught our alert of PKGM the Friday before last on the amazing run it produced (.0031-.013, +319%), did the stock turn in yet another winning card.

From its low-of-day at .0105, the stock took off on a run from which it did not look back as it surged past the two-cent mark to log a high of .0205. That worked out to an intraday romp of 95% and extended our total observed range on PKGM to 561% in just a week-and-a-half! The move came on the heels of some acquisition news (>>View PR)

__________

Steampunk Wizards, Inc. SPWZ

Last but not least among our excellent selections from yesterday’s morning report was SPWZ. This was a first-time mention for us, and the stock provided a heck of an introduction!

We watched as SPWZ launched from an early low of .25 and ended up at a high of .44 for possible intraday gains up to 76% Like each of the previously mentioned plays, it held a healthy amount of that advance into the close.


SolarCity Corp. SCTY – Options Idea

We took notice of SCTY’s earnings miss today and immediately were struck with a potential options idea. The stock, which has already been under duress all this month, looks set to get kicked once again.

The activity is fueling our attraction to the possibilities that could be provided by the SCTY Weekly $19-17 Puts. We’ll throw these up on our tracking board for potential intraday/intraweek swing-trade chances.
