Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPY Recap & More

SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

After another bullish session for the SPY on Friday, we’ve got updates to the highs and overall possible gains on our original contracts, as well as the maximum intraday profits that could have been seized with our rolled up strike prices. All in all, we ended up with two incredible sets of one and two-day runners without a single dud in the bunch!

DropCar Inc. DCAR

Catching our eye as a potential bottom-bounceplay this morning is DCAR, which, prior to today, has already begun to come up off of recently registered lows on Friday. As you can see on the included chart, our favorite indicators are clearly pointing up, with a MACD cross underway and a rapidly strengthening RSI.

This morning, a new catalyst has entered into the mix, with the company reporting a new agreement with Jaguar/Land Rover Manhattan. The dealership will use DropCar’s Enterprise Vehicle Assistance & Logistics technology platform to automate the pickup and delivery of customer vehicles for service and maintenance.

Despite gapping up moderately in the premarket, is still a fair bit of unrealized upside potential, so we’ll add DCAR to our radars and keep a close watch over it in coming sessions.

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. CMG 

Our extreme success on the options front continues. We cited the CMG chart setup as the reason for wanting to have our eye on the CMG Weekly $297.50-305 Calls yesterday morning, and were very pleased with the intraday performance we witnessed. It also didn’t hurt that the founder stepped down to make room for a new CEO, which went over well with the investment community.

Regardless of which strike price was chosen, there were some serious multi-bag single-session gains there for the taking:

$297.50 Calls – Range: 1.50-8.10 – Max Gain: 440%
$300 Calls – Range: 1.15-6.50 – Max Gain: 465%
$302.50 Calls – Range: .77-5.00 – Max Gain: 549%
$305 Calls – Range: .54-3.83 – Max Gain: 609%

Fresh Idea:

The Kroger Co. KR – We want to signal some options to watch for Kroger as well after the company tidily topped 3Q forecasts with this morning’s earnings report. We’re going to be looking to the KR Weekly 25.50-27.50 Calls to try to take advantage of the conditions. We’re also anxious to listen in on the conference call slated for later this morning.



Crypto Recaps

Whatever you refer to it as, virtual currency, digital currency, or cryptocurrency, the rise of Bitcoin has fueled a hugely popular market sector, and caused many small companies to shift focus to attempt to capitalize on what has become pure hysteria.  Bitcoin breached $11,300 yesterday, and as a result, some of the BTC-related plays we’ve tagged have enjoyed really nice moves on the chart.

Integrated Ventures, Inc. INTV – Having recently lauched its bitcoin mining efforts, INTV is a stock that we slated for observation in our watchlist yesterday morning. The stock responded with a solid run from .551 to .97, marking an intraday pop of 76% on more than ten times its monthly average volume.

Peer to Peer Network PTOP - This one appeared in our watchlist earlier this month on the 7th. We came early to the party on this one, but with Bitcoin setting its new all-time high once again yesterday, it woke up in a big way. That included a serious intraday move of 1780% as PTOP traded from a low of .0005-.0094. It represented the stock’s highest price in three years, and a new all time record high volume, with over 400 million shares changing hands on the day.

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.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Sector Heating Up Again

Cannabis Comments

We got head-faked a little bit in terms of the cannabis sector in the past year or so. Leading up to last fall, anything even remotely tied to marijuana was going through the roof, with seemingly no end in sight. Then a regime change in Washington led to the appointment of self-avowed cannabis hater Jeff Sessions to the head of the DOJ. That led to a considerable cooling of what was previously the hottest market sector.

That being said, it has been business as usual for companies operating in the space in places that have taken the step of ending prohibition. Growth is happening all around, and the investment community has taken notice. The cannabis sector is showing signs of heating up once again, so we want to return to some of the plays we’ve covered in the past and highlight a few that could stand to see some good moves in the days and weeks ahead.

Dewmar International, Inc. DEWM – We just signaled our interest in DEWM in Friday morning’s premarket report, and the stock made a solid two-session swing. From Friday’s low of .0108 to .0163 yesterday, marking a move of 51% We’ll want to continue to track its movements,particularly after this morning’s news.

DEWM announced today that it filed a provisional patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the treatment of lung cancer with cannabinoids, so that’s going to be another interesting storyline to follow with respect to DEWM.

Also going on our refreshed cannabis watchlist of previously tracked stocks will be PNTV, POTN, MCIG, MCOA, and TRTC.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX – Options

We’re always looking for a good post-earnings options play and we may have one with NFLX this morning. Up 10% in premarket trading on a solid beat, we’re going to be looking for a potential dip-and-rip scenario that could lead to some hefty intraday moves. Our targets are going to be the NFLX Weekly $172.50-180 Calls.
