Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GLYC Breaks Out & More

GlycoMimetics, Inc. GLYC

The star of the show from yesterday’s premarket report was definitely GLYC, which we tagged in the extended watchlist after noticing the increasing accumulation and uptrend forming in recent sessions.

That trend was kicked into high gear with more than fifty-six times the three-month average volume pouring into the stock as GLYC traded up from a low of 7.21 and reached 11.58 for an intraday move of  61% The overall range we’ve seen here has been extended this morning in the premarket as well with the stock hitting a high of 12.05; that boosts our observed range to 67%

With GLYC shooting up so rapidly, we’ll want to be on the lookout for a potential dip-and-rip scenario, which we see quite a bit in these sort of situations.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

It’s been awhile since we formulated an options idea for one of our old favorite targets in PBR, most recently being back in April. We often come back to the PBR well because it provides a lot of opportunities, and we’ve spotted what could be the next opportunity today.

Brazilian markets got crushed yesterday amid yet another government corruption scandal, causing a massive loss in share value for PBR in the blink of an eye. Today, it’s already snapping back and starting to recover in the premarket, so we want to formulate some options ideas to turn to in the event that the trend persists.

For quick-hit daytrading possibilities, we’ll have the PBR Weekly $8.50 and $9 Calls*, and for a longer-term idea we’ll have the PBR 06/30 $9.50 and $10 Calls on watch.

Another Fresh Idea: Deere & Co. DE Weekly $118-121 Calls*

*Never attempt to trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are a highly experienced trader- it’s an exceedingly risky proposition.

Extended Watchlist:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Great Start to the Short Week

Oncolytics, BioTech, Inc. ONCYJumping off of yesterday’s extended watchlist was ONCY, which not only produced a fruitful session yesterday, but continued to push its upper limits this morning as it touched a premarket high of .90.

After tagging this play yesterday, we witnessed a low of .57 before ONCY took off to set a daily high of .74 (+30%). As of this morning’s premarket high of .90, the stock had registered a total increase of 58%

Lucas Energy, Inc. LEI

LEI put up a pleasing performance as well yesterday. After being included in Friday’s report and making a move from .26 to .362 (+39%), the stock continued its trend, cutting a path from its daily low of .34 on up to .45.

That run marked an intraday gain of 32%, and an overall increase of 73% over our observed low on Friday.

Gevo, Inc. GEVO

GEVO, another inclusion in Friday’s watchlist, also made gains for the second consecutive session, trading in a range from .257-.30 (+17%). At its high, it registered as an increase of 49% from Friday’s low.

MagnaGas Corp. MNGA

MNGAalso appeared on our extended watchlist yesterday, and made a comparatively modest yet solid 16% move during yesterday’s session.

Yesterday’s Options Ideas

We focused on some longer-term ideas with the following two plays yesterday, and despite that fact, were very pleased with the immediate price action.

VASCO Data Security International, Inc. VDSI - The 03/20 $25 Calls we outlined in yesterday’s report made two sizable swings. First, from 5.11-7.10 (+39%) followed by a big pullback to 1.60 before it ripped back to 4.60, adding a huge intraday move equaling 187%

Similar action in the weekly calls at the same strike price (4.91-6.70, .72-4.21) could also have facilitated large gains.

Medtronic plc MDT - In MDT we zeroed in on the 03/20 $77.50 and $80 Calls, and both sets of contracts made big moves for us. The $77.50′s ran from a low of 3.70 and went on to touch 5.90, marking an intraday spike of 60%, and the $80′s would trade in a range from  .36-.83, which is a 130% jump.

Like VDSI, our longer-term idea could have applied to the weekly contracts here as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AAN, RFMD, FTNW & Extended Watchlist

Aarons, Inc. AAN – Options

One item of interest that we’ve been waiting to touch upon is AAN. We’ve watched as the stock has taken quite a beating over the past few weeks, and are presently scanning for a bottom. After losing so much ground over so short a time period, when support is found, the recovery on AAN could end up allowing for some rapid profits in the options chain.

While we need to first observe a solid base of support before setting our short-term call strategy, there are already a pair of longer-term contracts that we’re going to put on watch. The November 22nd $29 and $30 Calls (trading yesterday at 3.20 and 2.05, respectively) could see significant rises in value once a reversal occurs on the chart.

RF Micro Devices, Inc. RFMD

We brought RFMD up as a topic of discussion this past Friday, mentioning that the spike catalyzed by the release of record revenues was likely to lead to a classic ‘dip-and-rip’ scenario. That keen instinct has thus far paid off, as the stock did indeed dip to 10.74 before rebounding as high as 11.79 (+10%), achieving higher lows each day over the past four sessions.

As a result of the trend, we’re going to have our eyes on the September $12 Calls, which closed at .70 yesterday.

FTE Networks, Inc. FTNW

FTNW hit our news scanner this morning and will be a stock that we monitor as the trading session opens today. The PR alludes to some lucrative contracts, so we’ll be interested to see how it reacts to such significant press.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates on LWSP, TTDZ & PBR

Legacy Platinum Group, Inc. LWSP
We’d like to update everyone on the status of one of this week’s successful picks. We first brought LWSP to our readers on Tuesdaymorning, at which time the stock opened up at .187.LWSP spent the next two sessions on the upswing, culminating in yesterday’s push to  a new high of .33. That marks a three-day overall increase of 76%

Moving forward, we’ll need to see support hold at or above .21 in order for us to remain interested in LWSP.

Remember, per Tuesday’s PR, we’re waiting for an upcoming name and symbol change, expected to begin on May 16th.  We’ll also be on the lookout for further updates from the company on its new direction in the e-cigarette and portable vaporizer market.

Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. TTDZ

For some of our newer readers, allow us to do a quick recap of how TTDZ has become one of 2014′s superstar picks for us. Beginning with our first alert on the stock on January 30th, we observed a low of .0012. and it has been pushing its upper boundaries ever since.

By the time mid-March rolled around, the stock had punched above .015, gaining well over 1200% from our first call, but the party was just getting started.

Flash forward to the present, and TTDZ has pressed its way all the way to an impressive high of .0385. Which means that in less than two months, we’ve seen a total increase of 3108% out of TTDZ.

This is another play that recently transitioned into the cannabis sector that has applied for a name and symbol change, and we expect to have an update on that within the next few weeks.

Petroleo Brasiliero SA (Petrobras) PBR

After picking up on PBR exactly two weeks ago today, we’ve seen some impressive trading action in that short time, especially with regard to the options chain.

Besides coming across this stock shortly after it hit all-time lows, and witnessing the start of one heck of a recovery, we also received news this week of PBR’s boosted production numbers from February, which were significantly higher than those of previous months.

Today we’ll be looking at the $13 and $13.50 Weekly Calls for possible intraday flip-opportunities. For those without the ability to stay glued to your screens all day, for longer-term possibilities, we’ve noted our interest in the May $12 Calls and the April $14 Calls.

In the event that PBR fails to hold support at or above the 13-dollar mark, we would have to reassess our opinions.

BOSC, PSUN, ETAK, TGRO & Extended Watchlist

BOS Better Online Solutions Ltd. BOSC

Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. PSUN

& Elephant Talk Communications, Inc. ETAK

Each of these three stocks traded up on unusually high volume on Friday after appearing in our Extended Watchlist, and wrapped up what was a very successful week of trading.

BOSC tapered back from opening above 9.00, and found its bottom at 7.9001. The stock then proceeded to rebound, bouncing back as high 8.80 for a nice 11% intraday gain on more than 10X the 3mo. average volume.

PSUN increased steadily all day on Friday, running from 2.92 to 3.44, good for a gain of 18% on roughly six times the 3mo. average volume.

ETAK saw a low of 1.01 on Friday, and enjoyed a respectable 17% gain to a high of 1.18, besting its average volume by more than 4X.

Tiger Oil & Energy, Inc. TGRO

We caught TGRO on a scan for plays with unusual activity, and thought we’d mention it this morning. This is a stock that was trading by appointment only for quite some time, that has sprung to life all of the sudden.

This comes shortly after a recent press release citing a proposed partnership with Toto Energy, LLC, wherein the two companies would undertake a joint venture of drilling up to three gas wells, in which TGRO would have a 30% interest. >>>More on the Joint Venture
