Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ALQA Recap & More

Alliqua, Inc. ALQA

The big winner off our premarket watchlist in yesterday’s report turned out to be ALQA, which had a hard spike early in the session and continued to push more steadily upward over the course of the day leading to a strong close. The activity was fueled by the news that the FDA granted 510(k) clearance for ALQA’a SilverSeal Hydrogel wound dressing.

From its early low of .258 the stock traversed its way up to .45, which goes down as a 74% intraday gain. The move came on nearly forty times the monthly average volume on the stock, and as we just mentioned, it also closed with strength, just a penny below the high of day.

After hours trading also saw the stock achieve a high of .51, and it appears as if it could gap up slightly to start the day. We’ll be on the lookout for signs of a continued uptrend here as we head into this midweek.


Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL

Despite looming bankruptcy proceedings for UNXL, our bottom-feeder instincts have kicked in as the stock was punished down to a new all-time lows yesterday and is showing signs of a possible rebound this morning.

This NASDAQ could certainly be on its way to an OTC Markets listing in the future, being nowhere near the minimum bid requirements for the higher exchange. But for the time being, we’re only interested in its immediate situation. Over-abused stocks have had a historical tendency to produce some very nice moves for us as they correct course, so we’re going to place UNXL on watch in coming days.


Rimrock Gold Corp. RMRK

We also wanted to swing back around for a quick update on RMRK this morning. We placed this one on watch last Wednesday morning, catching it before it ran over 300% from .0006-.0025 that afternoon.

After a sharp pullback to .0008 over the ensuing few sessions, the stock  rebounded yesterday, returning to a high of .0019 which marks a 138% swing.

We’ll be watching for it to continue to register higher lows on any further pullbacks. Any stock with this kind of price action and volatility is one that we definitely want to keep a close eye on for more quick strike trade opportunities.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LODE, Options & More

Potential Bottom-Plays

Comstock Mining, Inc. LODE - We’re coming across a serious bottom-bounce candidate in LODE this morning. The stock has been in a general downtrend all year long, and was recently beaten back so severely that a rebound was inevitable. That began yesterday, and now we’re very interested to track the activity and see if we can confirm a sustained reversal on this one.

Taking a look at the included snapshot of the LODE chart, it would quite frankly be a little surprising if this play didn’t see a continued rebound, and it’s currently trading up in the premarket, so we’ll surely want to keep an eye peeled as the session kicks off.

Another notable aspect of this play is that the company must find a way to re-attain a share price of at least a dollar by November, or face delisting from the AMEX.

______

MabVax Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. MBVX -  Another similar looking chart striking us as a potential bottom-bounce play. MBVX has been trending down since last fall, and it appears as if it’s ready to make a move off of its recently established annual lows, helped along by a key PR.

The company reported positive phase I results for its MVT-2163 ImmunoPET Imaging Agent, an antibody discovery platform focused on the treatment of cancer. (>>View PR) It’s causing a considerable gap-up here in the premarket, and we’ll be quite interested to follow along with the activity.


The Kroger Co. KR  – Options Idea

KR set its own 52-week lows this spring, and has recently been making a comeback on the chart. They’ve also got earnings coming tomorrow, so we thought we’d formulate an options idea running into that release.

We’ll be looking at the KR Weekly $29 and $30 Calls, which could see some nice action, especially if the company’s earnings beat expectations tomorrow.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NIHD Review & More

NII Holdings, Inc. NIHD

We initially tagged NIHD in our premarket report from last Thursday, and on that day we would observe a low of .5472 in the stock. It’s been stepping its way up, but this morning in premarket trading things have really kicked into high gear, with NIHD cracking through the dollar barrier.

As of this morning’s premarket high of 1.14, we’ve now witnessed an increase of 108% in NIHD over a span of just three trading sessions. In order for us to remain highly interested in this play, we’ll want to see it maintain support at or above its current 50DMA of .83 on any pullbacks that may occur.


Celsion Corp. CLSN

We called out CLSN in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and saw a modest yet respectable move out of that play as well. From a low of 3.85 the stock ran as high as 4.96, marking an intraday move of 29%

The stock was number four on the NASDAQ’s top gainer list for the day, and while it did end up tapering back to close near its daily lows, this morning it is gapping up again in the premarket. This surge of activity is primarily due to yesterday’s announcement of positive results in its ovarian cancer treatment trials.

We’ll definitely be keeping CLSN on our radars and watching for the continued establishment of higher lows off of our recently observed bottom.


Bitcoin Services, Inc. BTSC

BTSC was a part of the bitcoin watchlist we issued on May 25th in the midst of a bitcoin frenzy where the crypto-currency was soaring to new all-time highs.

The residual effect for plays like BTSC has been impressive, with with stocks PPS making a jump from our observed low of  .0366 up to a new high of .164 yesterday, which represents a 348% rip which occurred over a period of just seven sessions.


Egalet Corp. EGLT

Not only is EGLT coming off of a bottom on the chart, but in the space of the past 36 hours, the company has made two major announcements.

Yesterday, it was made known that EGLT had “received a U.S. patent for its proprietary Guardian™ Technology tablet architecture used to create precise delivery of combination products with immediate-, delayed- and/or extended-release properties.” (>>View PR)

Today, the announcement was that “one of the largest payers in the United States will provide coverage of ARYMO® ER (morphine sulfate) extended-release tablets” (>>View PR)

Potential Bottom-Bounce Plays

This morning we’ve taken notice of a couple of stocks that are trading near recent relative lows, which have also begun to show some life this week. 

The Female Health Co. FHCO – We like the look of the chart on this one, which is coming off a multiple bottom and just managed to crack through and hold support above its 50DMA. The next area of resistance appears to be the channel between its recent swing high at 1.45 and the 200DMA of 1.57.

______

Nate’s Food Co. Inc. NHMD – This stock has appeared on our watchlist in the past, and today, we’re circling back around to it purely from the look of the chart. Several indicators are pointing toward the chance of some sizable upswings in sessions to come, so we’ll want to monitor the situation closely.

We’re going to want to see it get back above and hold the 200DMA at .0089 as support going forward.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Reviewing a Monster Monday

Monday’s Huge Winners

We kicked off the week in grand fashion yesterday, with what was easily the most successful single session for stocks we’ve had so far in 2016. We had an incredible three picks, all energy-related stocks, make gains of at least a hundred percent concurrent with the continued bolstering of oil prices.

SandRidge Energy, Inc. SDOC

We continued to track SDOC yesterday, after our mention in Friday’s premarket report netted a chance at up to 35% in intraday gains (.05-0674), and the surge was sustained and multiplied. After gapping up to open at .075, the stock bulled its way to an afternoon high of .154, for a solid double-bagger (105%).

From our observed low of a nickel on Friday, yesterday’s high marked a two-session swing of 208%

______

Penn Virginia Corp. PVAH

Undoubtedly our top-gaining pick of the day, PVAH was off to the races promptly at the open.

It was a pleasure to watch as it spent the entire session in beast-mode, ramping its way up from .112 to .38 on immense volume! That’s an increase of 239% on the day, so big cheers go out to any of our readers who were able to take advantage of this gem!

______

Goodrich Petroleum Corp. GDPM

GDPM came up big as well with an excellent intraday run, while managing to hold a majority of its daily advances into the close.

It started out with a rip from .0875-.1998, an intraday move of 128%, and came in at .174 at the closing bell, finishing the day on roughly 5x its 3-month average volume.

______

Linn Co. LLC (LNCO)

While LNCO didn’t crack the double-bag threshold, it certainly had a solid session and came close. The stock traded in a range from .95-1.70, offering up intraday gains if up to 79%

______

Breightburn Energy Partners, Inc. BBEP

BBEP also put forth a modest, yet respectable performance, rounding out our group of gainers for the day with a run from .80-1.25. That gave folks a shot at gains as high as 56% on the day.


Options Ideas

We’re also going to go ahead and formulate a couple of options trading ideas this morning- one long, and one short:

Urban Outfitters, Inc. URBN - Weekly $29-32 Calls  

Shake Shack, Inc. SHAK -  Weekly $40-37.50 Puts
