Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Epic BPTH Run

Bio-Path Holdings, Inc. BPTH

We’ve been talking about BPTH all week, after the stock we tagged as a bottom watch play in our morning report on January 23rd had come up from our observed low of 2.65 to nearly the $15-mark. It was an incredible gain indeed, but nothing could have prepared us for what was to come.

Yesterday, following the company’s clinical update on its Phase 2 acute myeloid leukemia drug, prexigebersen, we saw an explosion on the chart that can only be described as the rarest of the rare. BPTH shot up from a daily low of 17.01 to an astounding high of 73.52! That worked out to an intraday swing of 332% As measured from the low following our January alert on the stock, BPTH posted an increase of  2,674% in a matter of just five weeks.

The stock pulled back to the high $30′s following that epic run, so it would appear that the above-mentioned figure will be the final maximum gain on our idea. While this has a chance to go down as our best stock call of the year, the chances that we score bigger gains on options ideas are extremely high. So we encourage any non-subscribers reading this to sign up as soon as possible!


Fresh Options Ideas

Speaking of options, which have also brought us several multi-bag gain opportunities this week, we’ll go ahead and close out this incredibly successful week with a pair of ideas that seem to be good bets here in the premarket. Horrid payroll numbers are contributing to what appears to be an impending bearish day for the markets.

SPY Weekly $274.50-273 Puts*
BIG 03/15 $35-37.50 Calls

*Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with access to disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Fresh Options Three-Pack!

Galectin Therapeutics, Inc. GALT

About a week ago, we signaled GALT for observation, a stock we’ve had quite a bit of experience tracking in the past. It had been in a bearish downslide for the better part of two months, and had just begun to rebound.

We wanted to come back around for an update on the move GALT has made since that time. After seeing a low of 4.06, the stock has traversed its way back to a high of 6.53. That marks a respectable upswing of 61% and puts us on alert for the possibility of more moves.


SPDRA S&P 500 ETF (SPY) – Options Idea

Our fresh options idea for yesterday morning was the SPY Weekly $290-291.50 Calls to watch into the end of the week. With a solid midday performance for the SPY, some significant intraday gains were made in our designated targets.

$290 Calls – Range: .98-1.54 – Max Gain: 57%
$290.50 Calls – Range: .67-1.13 – Max Gain: 69%
$291  Calls – Range: .43-.79 – Max Gain: 84%
$291.50 Calls – Range: .25-.50 – Max Gain: 100%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ANW Bottom Bouncer & More

Aegean Marine Petroleum Network, Inc. ANW

We hope everyone had a pleasant midweek holiday break; we expect a relatively subdued closeout to this short week, but one stock that is hitting our scanners as a high potential bottom play this morning is ANW.

As you can see from the included chart, the stock has been oversold for quite some time now, reaching unsustainable low levels, while a massive gap exists to the upside.

The stock has begun to fill that gap this morning, and we’re interested to see where the spike in activity is going to take ANW.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Key Updates & More

NovaVax, Inc. NVAX

NVAX continued its multi-day recovery with a fourth straight session of intraday gains leading to a new high for us yesterday. We’ve talked about it almost every day this week, initially bringing it up in Monday morning’s report; at the time the stock was trading as low as 1.36.

It has made some nice, steady progress, and yesterday the stock made its way to  high of 2.25, marking an intraweek upswing of 65% on extremely heavy volume throughout.

We’ve also taken notice of series of Form-4 buys that were reported after hours yesterday, the largest of which was a 100,000 share block at an exercise price of 1.72. We’ll look for the stock, to maintain support at or above that level on any pullbacks moving forward in order to stay interested in tracking it.


APT Systems, Inc. APTY

This is another play we’ve been tracking since last Friday, and it too has managed an excellent uptrend this week, after we initially observed a low of .0036 subsequent to indicating our interest. Yesterday the stock traded in a range from .0065-.0125 for a 93% intraday push, and that new high marked a one week swing of 247%

We’re definitely going to stay on its trail heading into next week, provided it can hold support in the channel between .0072 and .01 on any upcoming pullbacks.


ACRE Reality Investments, Inc. AIII

Part of our bottom-watchlist that we submitted for Tuesday morning’s premarket report, AIII has made solid steps to the upside throughout the rest of the week, confirming the fact that we timed the bottom with absolute precision.

From Tuesday low of 1.0194, the stock has sustained a good recovery, and made its way back to a high of 1.32 yesterday (+29%). This is another one we’ll continue to follow into next week, as there still appears to be room for it to run.

As we’ve pointed out on the annotated chart below, the RSI is gaining strength having just breached the 50-line, the MACD is on the verge of a bullish cross, and the PPS is approaching key resistance at the 50 and 200DMA’s of 1.33 and 1.35 respectively. We’ll continue to monitor the situation as we close out another trading week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: New Options Ideas & More

Options Ideas

JP Morgan Chase & Co. JPM 
- The first item on our agenda this morning is going to be to formulate an options trading idea for JP Morgan on the heels of the company’s earnings beat this morning, which has the stock gapping up here in the premarket.

We’re going to be zeroing in on the JPM Weekly $63.50-65.50 Calls for potential daytrades, and/or swing trades into tomorrow, depending on how the activity unfolds.

Seagate Technology Holdings, Inc. STX – STX has recently been making a nice move after a large gap-up earlier this week. In the premarket it is pressing past the 200DMA(30.20) and looks as if it could continue to truck higher and fill the gap on the chart to $33.

We have a couple corresponding options ideas that could be in line for some nice gains; for daytrading opportunities this week, the STX Weekly $30-31 Calls, and the STX 07/22 $30.50-31.50 Calls for potential swing trades into next week.



Updates on Recent Interests

SAExploration Holdings, Inc. SAEXLast week, we tagged SAEX as a bottom-watch play and after a few sessions of mostly sideways trading, the stock has finally begun to get some legs this week. The bottom, and our observed low, came in at .1385, and yesterday SAEX hit .298. That works out to a four session swing of 115%

______

Gold Resource Corp. GORO -  We’ve been tracking GORO closely since we entered it into the conversation at the end of June. At the time we had observed a PPS low of 3.19, and yesterday the stock continued to push its upper limits with a new high of 5.50. That represents an overall swing of 72% and a new 52-week high as well. Firmly in blue sky breakout territory, we’ll continue to keep an eye on GORO.

______

Lot78, Inc. LOTE – After tracking it to some nice gains last week, we saw LOTE pull back slightly yesterday, to a swing low of .016 before it rebounded 37% back to .022. We’ll look for the stock to retest our previously observed high of .03, the breaching of which would put this one into blue sky breakout mode as well!
