Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MYO, HOS Reviews & More

Myomo, Inc. MYO

In terms of intraday gainers, MYO stole the show on Friday after appearing in our premarket report. Considering the fact that it was a ten dollar stock to begin with, the single-session rip we got from this play was fantastic.

From a low of 10.10 in the morning, MYO cruised its way to a high of 18.20 on over three times the monthly average volume. That worked out to an 80% move, and the stock closed with strength.

We’re going to be looking to MYO again as we kick off a new trading week today, as the stock has already bested Friday’s highs in premarket trading this morning. There may be a dip-and-rip formation, or a straight continuation of momentum, but either way we’ll want to see higher highs and higher lows established in order to confirm MYO as a multi-day runner and remain interested.

Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc. HOS

Coming in as an honorable mention, also from Friday’s report, was HOS. The stock traded up from 2.26 and ran as high as 2.93. That logs as a intraday rise of 30%, and it traded six times its 30-day average volume.

Like the above-mentioned play, HOS had a pretty solid close, and is showing signs of potentially sustaining the trend it established leading into the end of last week.

Smart & Final Stores, Inc. SFS

Many grocery stocks took a hit at the end of last week amid the huge Amazon-Whole Foods deal, and there could definitely be rebound opportunities forthcoming as a result.

One such stock that caught our eye is SFS, which was hammered down to new 52-week lows on Friday. Purely from a technical standpoint we’d be interested in this for potential bottom plays in the stock and the options chain as well. We’ll signal the SFS 08/18 $10 Calls for observation over an extended term.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: RUSS & More

Direxion Daily Russia Bear 3X ETF (RUSS)

By now we all have at least a limited awareness of the conflict currently underway in the Balkans, but just in case, let us provide a brief synopsis.

Ukrainian forces in the country’s eastern region have been clashing with militant separatists, even despite a recent cease-fire agreement. The separatists desire a return to Russian rule, and it appears that the group’s efforts have been aided by the Russian government.  As a result, heavy economic sanctions have already been placed on Russia, and it has been said that more are being explored.

The RUSS ETF trades with an inverse relationship to the Russian economy, so it’s conceivable that while Russia struggles with the economic repercussions of the conflict in the Ukraine, we could potentially see a protracted rise in this fund.

As you can see on the snapshot below, already it is showing indications of a reversal on the chart, exhibiting many of the characteristics of a prime bottom-play. As we kick off a new trading week, RUSS will be one of our primary items of interest.

Notable Mention From Friday

If you recall, we included a side note at the end of Friday’s report wherein we ventured that a market reversal and downturn could lead us to some interesting opportunities $22 UVXY Calls. While the markets overall continued their upward momentum, those traders who were quick on the draw could still have made a substantial profit from those contracts before they saw a pullback.

The $22 Calls made a strong initial push right out of the gate, running rapidly from 36-.63, a 75% intraday spike.

As you can see from the snapshot of the actual trade data of one of our top traders, significant profits were there for the taking early, even if one didn’t catch the low. From an initial block of $1860, he was able to cash out at the high of day for a 34% return in less than a half hour, leaving him with nearly $2500!
