Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Double-Bottom Watchlist & More

Double-Bottom Watchlist

We like to look for potential rebound plays in stocks that are displaying a double bottom formation on the chart, and we’ve got three such candidate to add to a recovery watchlist this morning.

InVivo Therapeutics Holding Corp. NVIV, Stein Mart,Inc. SMRT, and Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc. SPWH have all begun to trend off of a level of support that has been established on one or more previous occasions. We’ll want to monitor this trio in the days and weeks ahead for possible sustained recoveries.




StarBucks Corp. SBUX – Options Idea

Shares of SBUX really came crashing down this morning, all the way to the $55-level, the lowest PPS since March. We’ll be looking to take advantage of a possible forthcoming rebound when the smoke clears.

SBUX has demonstrated solid support in the $54-area earlier this year, so we’ll look for it to hold there or above on this plummet that comes even as analysts are reporting a good outlook.

Once a rebound begins to materialize, we could see some noteworthy activity in the SBUX 08/18 $54-55 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: CCTC, EBIO, Options & More


Potential Momentum Plays

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. CCTC - In a characteristic move, CCTC repeated the history of its own chart, as a stock that seemingly likes to make volatile swings to the upside. It breached its 50DMA in a bullish manner yesterday, so we are going to tag it for observation today in the event of continued momentum.

The chart is showing a series of ripening indicators as well. In order to hold our attention, CCTC will need to maintain support at or above that 50DMA, currently at .153 on any pullbacks.


______

Eleven BioTherapeutics, Inc. EBIO
– EBIO is a stock we’ve come back to on several occasions in the past, and today, we want to circle around to point out its current status as a bottom-bouncing momentum play.

It hit four-month lows just five sessions ago, and has made a decent effort at a rebound since then, so we’ll keep it on watch for the possibility of further recovery.


Options Ideas

We’ve got a couple of earnings-related options ideas this morning as well. As our regular readers are surely aware, post-earnings options trading is one of our favorite and most reliable ways of rooting out rapid short term gain opportunities.

Shake Shack, Inc. SHAK – Weekly $35.50-37 Calls

Macy’s, Inc. M – Weekly $38-41 Calls

______

Reminder: We’re also still tracking our idea on Starbucks from last Friday, the SBUX Weekly $53.50-55 Calls. The stock has traded up to nearly $55 in the premarket today, so we’ll be open to the possibility of seeing our gains extended there.

Starbucks Corp. SBUX – Options Update

Our options idea from Friday morning, the SBUX 11/11 $53.50-55 Calls
continued to be good plays as SBUX stock posted some solid intraday activity even as many others faltered in the uncertainty of the elections. It allotted for us to see further opportunities over the multi-bag gains we’d already been afforded to that point.

$53.50 Calls – Range: 1.05-1.47 – Max Gain: 169%
$54 Calls – Range: .76-1.07 – Max Gain: 300%
$54.50 Calls – Range: .45-.69 – Max Gain: 458%
$55 Calls – Range: .23-.43 – Max Gain: 344%

The markets as a whole are showing trepidation over the events of the past 24 hours, but once again, we must remain open to the possibility of seeing further moves out of these contracts which have treated us well so far.


CANNABIS SECTOR UPDATE:

As expected California passed its recreational marijuana initiative on election day, with Nevada and Massachusetts following suit.  Medical pot passed in North Dakota, Arkansas, and Florida. As we stated before, the whole landscape of the cannabis industry is set to change now, as the country as a whole takes several leaps toward the end of nationwide prohibition.

It’s just the outcome we expected, and the ramifications will begin to come into clearer focus in the weeks and months ahead as we observe how each state will handle roll-out of the new laws.

Our sector-wide alert will continue indefinitely as the effects of the outcomes on the investment side of things materialize.


Potential Bottom Plays

MannKind Corp. MNKD – It’s been a long while since we’ve taken a look at MNKD, and we want to draw some attention to it this morning as a possible bottom play. It’s been in a general downtrend for the better part of four months, and looks like it could be in a good spot for a rebound from this juncture. We’ll reserve it a space on our radar moving forward.

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. TEVA - The threat of a class-action lawsuit has produced a backslide in TEVA in recent sessions. It’s just the kind of consolidation on non-material developments that we’re always scanning for as course corrections can often occur following this type of activity, and sure enough, the stock appears to be rebounding in the premarket. To take advantage, we’re going to look to the TEVA Weekly $40.50-42.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Key Election Day Reminders & More

Starbucks Corp. SBUX – Options Update

On Friday morning, we suggested that the SBUX 11/11 $53.50-55 Calls
could be good for some solid opportunities if the momentum the stock had gained to that point managed to carry over into the new week. Of course, we followed up with a reminder of that fact in yesterday’s premarket report as well.

SBUX ultimately met our expectations and that range of contracts did provide some fantastic multi-bag intraday chances for our readers:

$53.50 Calls – Range: .49-1.32 – Max Gain: 169%
$54 Calls – Range: .25-1.00 – Max Gain: 300%
$54.50 Calls – Range: .12-.67 – Max Gain: 458%
$55 Calls – Range: .09-.40 – Max Gain: 344%

We won’t dismiss the possibility that further gains may be on the horizon for these weekly contract, dependent upon investor reaction to the unfolding events of election day.


Possible Bottom Plays

Sequential Brands Group, Inc. SQBG – This stock fell off a cliff last week, and we noticed the registering of a From-4 signaling an insider buy at the bottom. Yesterday the stock began to rebound, so we’re going to put it on watch as a potential recovery play.

Perion Netwrok Ltd. PERI – PERI has also recently been on a backslide but is regaining some ground this week. After a bullish session yesterday, the stock is gapping up in the premarket so we’ll have this one on watch as well.


CANNABIS SECTOR REMINDER: Apart from the volatility for the markets as a whole that the presidential election itself could certainly cause, we mustn’t forget what we’ve been shouting from the rooftops about the marijuana space for the past several weeks. Multiple key votes on both recreational and medical cannabis are on the ballots in many states.

The landscape of the industry is going to change overnight, and we aren’t going to miss out on the potential gains that will produce. We are effectively placing the entire sector on intensive watch until further notice.


Chatroom Call: International Consolidated Companies, Inc. INCC

INCC has gone on a heck of a run from .0007-.0025 after we tagged it in our traders chat on Friday, gaining as much as 257% so far.

We wanted to remind our readers that may not be aware- anyone can participate in our daily traders chat via Skype, where ideas like this one may come across once sessions get going. Simply send a contact request to ‘stocksumo‘ to get involved!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Bouncers & More

Bottom-Bouncers to Watch

Each of the following plays seem to have a reasonable shot at taking their chart reversals on Friday into a new trading week, and continuing to rebound. We’ll want to reserve a slot on our radar for each of them.

CannaSys, Inc. MJTKD – We’ve been crazy about marijuana related stocks of late, renewing an interest in a market sector that began more than two years ago. While most cannabis plays enjoyed some type of sustained upward momentum (ranging from moderate to epic) over the course of last month, MJTKD had a major move early on, and then spent the remainder of the time under heavy consolidation.

We’re entering the scene as the stock reached new annual lows on Thursday, and began to recover on Friday. We’re going to be on the lookout for some of that momentum to carry over from here; a run back 50DMA of .0775 from current pricing would represent a move of more than 200%


_______

Windstream Holdings, Inc. WIN
– Just like the above-mentioned play, WIN recorded a new 52-week low on Thursday, followed by the beginnings of a nice rebound on Friday. The chart is looking absolutely ripe, and the company also just announced an all-stock acquisition of EarthLink (>>View PR), so there’s definitely a spotlight being cast upon it at the present time.

We see the possibility of a good bottom play in the stock as well as a chance for an extended-term idea in options chain. We’ll be looking to the WIN 12/16 $7.00-9.00 Calls, which should stand to be big gainers if the stock can make a run at its 50DMA within the next several weeks.



Starbucks Corp. SBUX – Options Recap

Although they failed to maintain their advances throughout the session, the calls we highlighted for Starbucks, the SBUX Weekly $52-53′s, made huge runs early on Friday.

$52 Calls – Range: .10-1.77 – Max Gain: 1670%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .08-1.27 – Max Gain: 1487%
$53 Calls – Range: .05-.78 – Max Gain: 1460%

We also put the SBUX 11/11 $53.50-55 Calls on watch in case the run carried into this week, and despite a big dip later on in the session, the stock is recovering in the premarket this morning, so we’ll want to continue keeping an eye on the contracts in that range.
