Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MRTX Recap & More

 Mirati Therapeutics, Inc. MRTX

After reporting positive cancer trial results on Friday, we talked about MRTX being poised for a big move and we weren’t incorrect.

The stock exploded out of the gate right from the outset, and traded in an impressive range from 9.15 to 12.40 early on in the day. That was good for a 35% intraday run- excellent for a $9+ stock. This is the third time in as many weeks we’ve called a stock that was approaching the ten dollar range and saw it gain more than a third in value in a single session.

Not only did MRTX trade up big on many times more thanits average volume, but it managed to maintain well over half of its daily advance, so we’ll be interested to continue monitoring its activity as we kick off a fresh trading week.


Iconic Brands, Inc. ICNB

We want to place ICNB on bottom-watch after taking a look at the recent history of the chart. This stock exhibits some really nice volatility and is coming down off of a significant spike.

When it finds support and rebounds, we could see a notable swing trade opportunity. The last such swing took the stock from the .003 range to .014.

The company recently announced its brand of Prosecco endorsed by former supermodel Christie Brinkley would be carried by Publix stores, so we’ll also be looking for further updates on that part of the story as well.


Pluristem Therapeutics, Inc. PSTI

We tagged PSTI for observation roughly a month ago, and have since seen a moderate move up on the chart, and will want to continue monitoring the situation.

The run the stock has made thus far is a marginal 27%, but things this morning have taken an interesting turn as the company announced the FDA granted fast track status to one of its treatments.

Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. IDXG

Prior to yesterday morning’s report, we last mentioned IDXG last Thursday, and the stock has made quite a nice upswing from between then and now. We witnessed a low of .72 in IDXG subsequent to our alert last week. Yesterday’s session carried the stock from .8825-1.13, for an intraday push of 28% and a total move off of last week’s lows amounting to 57%

 Urban Outfitters- Options Idea

It’s been over a year since our last options idea for the URBN chain, which incidentally yielded multi-bag profit opportunities.

We’re going to come back to URBN this morning on the heels of the company’s post-market earnings report,the effects of which have boosted the stock considerably here in the premarket.

We’re going to play it the way we normally do in these instances where an earnings beat causes a rapid gap-up, and be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip pattern. We’ll be tracking the activity in the URBN Weekly $19-20.50 Calls.

Inotek Pharmaceutical Corp. ITEK

We tagged ITEK in Thursday’s premarket report, after noticing some FDA-related news hitting the wires, and during that session we would witness a low of 7.66 before the stock took off on an impressive tear that bled into Friday’s trading as well.

On Friday, the momentum carried the stock to a new high of 19.45, which registered as an overnight increase of 154%, so we want to send our congratulations to those of our readers who caught our report and cashed in on that impressive move!


Friday’s Winning Options Ideas

The big winners among the options ideas that we submitted in Friday morning’s report turned out to be the FB Weekly $96-50-97.50 Calls . Every one of the contracts in the range we specified turned up chances at impressive profits. Here’s a breakdown of the gains that were made possible by our timely alert.

The $96.50 Calls came out of the gate with a nice initial 108% move of from .65-1.35. That was followed up by a significant pullback to its daily low of .07 before running hard back to .58; an incredible 728% surge.

The $97 Calls produced similar action, with their first run taking them from .37-.96 (+159%), followed by a dip back to a penny before reaching back to a dime. That second move, like the previously mentioned contracts, was far more pronounced, coming in at a whopping  900%

The 97.50′s did make a move from .22-.52, an intraday gain of 136%, however they ended up too far out of the money to see a second run like the aforementioned plays. Still, their performance was nothing to sneeze at; any way you slice it, our FB Options ideas from Friday were a huge success!

Recapping Friday’s Options Ideas

We made it a point to pass along a handful of quick-strike options ideas on Friday. We mentioned the high-risk, high-reward nature of trading weekly contracts on a Friday, and we certainly were rewarded as every single idea we formulated bore fruit, to varying degrees.

Here’s a breakdown of the prime possibilities for profit that we observed:

Huge congratulations go out to any of our followers that were able to bank some hefty gains off of Friday’s excellent options ideas!


Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

We’re touching base with PZOO this morning to update our readers on what the stock has been up to lately. Many of you will recall the monumental April this stock had; we initiated coverage on April 1st, and PZOO essentially spent the entire month on an uptrend. The total range we observed over the course of the month went from .0049 to .0204, which amounted to an epic 316% swing.

We put the stock on the back burner this month as it consolidated off of those impressive highs, and we want to rehash our interest in this play now that it appears to be headed toward its next leg-up. We’d also suggest that folks check out the PR released by the company on Friday, which alludes to its partner’s ribbon-cutting on the Nevada medical marijuana testing facility that we’ve been anticipating.

We’ve prepared a video outlining the key aspects of the PZOO Chart:

MagneGas Corp. MNGA

We also want to pat ourselves on the back for a timely call of MNGA on Friday. We caught the news release highlighting the company’s contract with the US Navy, and it was enough to send the stock on a respectable intraday rip.

MNGA traded in a daily range from 1.08-1.48, which represented a healthy increase of 37% The move occurred on over 17X the 3-month average trading volume, and the stock closed just under the high of day, so we’ll be interested to see how the action unfolds as we kick off a new trading week today.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APP, Social Media Updates & More

American Apparel, Inc. APP

As tends to happen each year, we’ve honed back in on APP at an opportune time. After seeing a low of .51 as recently as June 24th, this past Thursday saw this stock push past the dollar-mark. After another solid session on Friday wherein the stock reached as high as a 1.20, it appears as if APP wants to gap up once again this morning, touching 1.27 in pre-market trading. At that price, we’ve seen an overall move of 149% from this play in just three weeks.

There’s a chance that we could see a slight consolidation to fill the gap on the chart left on Friday (1.05-1.08) in which case we’d need to see APP hold support at or above the 1.05-mark. The chart still appears ripe, however, so it will interesting to see how this play kicks off a new trading week.


Twitter, Inc. TWTR
& Facebook, Inc. FB

Social media giants TWTR and FB began to heat up last week, as anticipation of upcoming earning releases has ramped up, and both stocks seem to be gapping up in early trading this morning. We’ve done very well for ourselves trading options contracts on each of these plays, and will be looking for more of the same as these current uptrends play out.

As far as TWTR is concerned, the next key resistance is sitting at 42.50, and our current scope of interest in Call options rests in the $39-$41 range. Should TWTR gain further ground as trading opens up for the week, those contracts could see an appreciable rise in value in just a short time. (Earnings Release Date: 07/29)

FB’s key area of resistance is around 68.50, and we’re interested in Calls at the $67-69 level. FB earnings will come sooner that TWTR’s by almost a week, with the announcement just 9 days away, so we’ll really want to keep a close eye on the action here. (Earnings Release Date: 07/23)


Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. SWET

SWET first appeared in our reports on June 13th, at which time we designated it a stock that was due for a pop, and that’s exactly what we got out of it. The stock rushed upward from our observed low of .0185 to hit .032 (+73%) a week ago. After a slight consolidation and finding of support at .0226, the stock has begun to inch up toward the .03-mark once again. To get there, we’ll need to see a break of resistance at Friday’s swing high of .0291.

This morning’s news could be of help, with the announcement of up to $100M in additional funding hitting press wires:

Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. Agrees to Accept up to $100 Million Additional Financing from Arizona Alternative Energy Center, LLC for San Luis, Arizona Tower
