Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PNTV, XBIT Recaps & More

The Players Network, Inc. PNTV

PNTV is a stock that we were talking about quite a bit late last year and in the beginning of 2017, and since then, the stock has made some really impressive moves.

In the span of one quarter, from March until June, the stock has risen from lows at .0232 to trade as high as .1315. That’s an incredible upswing of 466%

While many plays in the cannabis space have seen some unexpected difficulty this year, PNTV is not one of them. They recently announced progression on the joint venture they have going with MCIG on the construction of a Vegas-based grow facility.


Xbiotech, Inc. XBIT

We tagged XBIT in yesterday’s extended watchlist, and subsequently bore witness to a solid early-morning pop. The stock ran from 3.75 to 5.61 right from the starting the gate, banging out a solid 51% pop inside of the first hour of trading.

We also have to remember that in XBIT, we have a stock that was trading just a hair shy of $20 as recently as March. We’ll have to be on the lookout in the event that the recent rebound mounted by the stock is just a foreshadowing of an even larger recovery.



Ability, Inc. ABIL

We’ve been mentioning ABIL each day since last Wednesday, and it turned out to be a really nice bottom-bouncer.

We’ve thus far witnessed two definitive swings from ABIL; initially from.6298-1.69 for a 168% run, and then a dip to .90 followed by a run back to 1.60 in premarket trading today. That added another 78% swing to what we’ve observed in ABIL.

We’d like to see it set a higher low, holding the 1.15-1.25 range on any pullbacks in order to remain interested.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Form-4 Alert, AAPL & More

 Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options

We used to trade AAPL options like they were going out of style, but have not actually talked about the stock in roughly six months.

This morning, on the heels of yesterday’s post-market earnings beat which featured better-than-expected iPhone sales, we’re going to be coming back to AAPL with a short-term options idea.

Having traded as high as 127.67 in the premarket, we’re going to be looking for a dip-and-rip off of this gap-up once the session commences. We’re going to be focused on the AAPL Weekly $125-127 Calls provided the expected early dip doesn’t take the stock lower than the $125-mark.


Opko Health, Inc. OPK

OPK is a familiar stock to us, albeit one that we haven’t touched upon in awhile. Recently, it has been under heavy consolidation, beginning with a large gap-down from the mid-$11 to the $10 area in late December, and persisting throughout last month.

We’ve also noticed a series of Form-4 filings which show the CEO was soaking up shares at these lows all last week and into Monday, to the tune of more than $300K worth purchased at market prices in just a few days.

We like to follow plays where directors are actively supporting their stock with confidence buys like those, so we’re going to be keeping a closer eye on OPK in sessions to come, as a rebound may be forthcoming at any time.


Tuesday’s Honorable Mentions

Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. CEGX – We placed CEGX in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist and were pleased with the stock’s modest, yet noteworthy intraday performance.

The stock traded in a range from .0026 to .0038, marking an intraday pop of 46% There was a consolidation into the close, and the stock failed to hold at least 50% of its daily advance, however, with the volatility exhibited in the past couple of sessions, we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CEGX as we cruise through mid-week.
_____

Players Network PNTV – We were just mentioning our coverage of PNTV on Monday, and the 400%+ gains we’d observed recently. What has followed is a solid couple of sessions that has the stock well on its way to an impressive intraweek performance.

Monday’s low came in at .028, and yesterday it reached as high as .04, marking a two-day swing of 30% We’ll be looking for the stock to continue posting higher highs and higher lows today, which would solidify PNTV’s multi-day runner status.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Bottom-Bouncers & More

Potential Bottom-Bouncers

We’re noticing a couple different possible bottom-plays that we want to start the week off by highlighting this morning:

Rite-Aid Corp. RAD – This stock has been repeat target for us at various times in the past, and we want to circle back around to it today as we’re noticing the recent activity. The stock plunged to new lows on Friday, yet regained almost all of that ground before closing nearly flat.

From the current place on the chart, and given the present indicators suggesting that a rebound could soon be forthcoming, we’re going to want to radar RAD on both the stock side of things, as well as signaling an idea in the options chain. In that case, we’re going to be interested in the RAD 02/25 $6-7 Calls, which gives us plenty of time for the stock to realize the recovery that we’re after.

______

Cymabay Therapeutics, Inc. CBAY -  CBAY is another play we’ve caught this morning as began showing signs of life after having hit its lowest PPS levels in over two months on Friday, as well as gapping up moderately in the premarket today (High: 2.15)

We’ll be looking for the stock to maintain support in the channel between the 50DMA (1.89) and 200DMA’s (1.96) on any pullbacks as things get going today. As you can see on the chart snapshot below, various indicators leading into today’s session appear favorable for CBAY.

One of the regular participants in our daily traders chats via Skype hit it big with an excellent call that was shared with the room last week. He swooped in with a sell suggestion on Friday that was perfectly timed.

We added a reminder in our report on Thursday as it had begun to ramp up heavily, and on Friday it went on to hit a new 52-week high of .048. It extends the overall gain we’ve observed in this play over the past couple of months to an impressive 439%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Recap & More

Seagate Technologies plc. STX – Options Recap

Although it would end up reversing and heading lower as the day progressed, STX did ride the bullish wave off of its healthy earnings beat for a solid upswing inside the first hour of trading yesterday.

That did facilitate a window of opportunity on the options contracts we were tracking, the STX Weekly $41-43.50 Calls. Traders who were quick on the draw yesterday morning could have taken away a piece of the following moves:

$41 Calls – Range: 1.78-5.28 – Max Gain: 196%
$41.50 Calls – Range: 2.00-4.48 – Max Gain: 124%
$42 Calls – Range: 1.99-4.50 – Max Gain: 126%
$42.50 Calls – Range: 2.11-3.45 – Max Gain: 63%
$43 Calls – Range:  .86-3.00 – Max Gain: 249%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .78-2.77 – Max Gain: 255%

We did signal our hunch that there would be a reversal in-session and a corresponding idea for the Weekly $46 Puts in our live traders chat, and those ended up doing quite well also, subsequently running from .60-3.29 (+448%) as STX continued to consolidate into the close.

It’s another example of why we urge any of our readers that want to get in on our daily traders chats to get a Skype contact request over to username ‘stocksumo’. That’s all it takes, and you can stay up to the minute on changing ideas throughout the day, and submit some of your own!


Avinger, Inc. AVGR

The current situation with the AVGR chart has caught our eye this midweek as the stock reversed course this week after a steep and rapid decline. We’re seeing increased activity in the premarket and AVGR has pushed its way up regaining much of the ground it has recently lost.

Currently trading around the 3.00 mark, a return to its recent swing high from roughly a month ago would mean gains of up to 50% so we’ll be monitoring AVGR over coming sessions for a possible continuation of the recovery that is presently in effect.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Key Election Day Reminders & More

Starbucks Corp. SBUX – Options Update

On Friday morning, we suggested that the SBUX 11/11 $53.50-55 Calls
could be good for some solid opportunities if the momentum the stock had gained to that point managed to carry over into the new week. Of course, we followed up with a reminder of that fact in yesterday’s premarket report as well.

SBUX ultimately met our expectations and that range of contracts did provide some fantastic multi-bag intraday chances for our readers:

$53.50 Calls – Range: .49-1.32 – Max Gain: 169%
$54 Calls – Range: .25-1.00 – Max Gain: 300%
$54.50 Calls – Range: .12-.67 – Max Gain: 458%
$55 Calls – Range: .09-.40 – Max Gain: 344%

We won’t dismiss the possibility that further gains may be on the horizon for these weekly contract, dependent upon investor reaction to the unfolding events of election day.


Possible Bottom Plays

Sequential Brands Group, Inc. SQBG – This stock fell off a cliff last week, and we noticed the registering of a From-4 signaling an insider buy at the bottom. Yesterday the stock began to rebound, so we’re going to put it on watch as a potential recovery play.

Perion Netwrok Ltd. PERI – PERI has also recently been on a backslide but is regaining some ground this week. After a bullish session yesterday, the stock is gapping up in the premarket so we’ll have this one on watch as well.


CANNABIS SECTOR REMINDER: Apart from the volatility for the markets as a whole that the presidential election itself could certainly cause, we mustn’t forget what we’ve been shouting from the rooftops about the marijuana space for the past several weeks. Multiple key votes on both recreational and medical cannabis are on the ballots in many states.

The landscape of the industry is going to change overnight, and we aren’t going to miss out on the potential gains that will produce. We are effectively placing the entire sector on intensive watch until further notice.


Chatroom Call: International Consolidated Companies, Inc. INCC

INCC has gone on a heck of a run from .0007-.0025 after we tagged it in our traders chat on Friday, gaining as much as 257% so far.

We wanted to remind our readers that may not be aware- anyone can participate in our daily traders chat via Skype, where ideas like this one may come across once sessions get going. Simply send a contact request to ‘stocksumo‘ to get involved!
