Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PCTL Run Continues

PCT Ltd. PCTL

We have been hot on the trail of PCTL for nearly a month now, and the progress this OTC play has made in that time span  has been extraordinarily impressive. Shortly following our original alert from 07/22, we would observe a low of .0085 in PCTL. It didn’t take long for the stock to break out of subpenny territory, and the gains it has piled on following that have been huge.

Yesterday, the stock continued to streak into blue skies as it registered a new high of .0416, which represents an overall increase of 389% over our observed low!



SPDR S&P500 (ETF) SPY – Recap

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PCTL Still on Fire & More

PCT Ltd. PCTL – Update -

We have taken a slight detour from our typical options and big-board-heavy focus to look back to the OTC Markets, where we used to make the bulk of our bread and butter, many years ago.

The lower exchanges are still good for speculative short term trading if you know where to look, and PCTL, which we initially tagged for observation first thing  Monday morning, has now continued to move impressively through a second consecutive session. As we reported yesterday morning, on Monday the stock ran from .0089-.015 (+69%), but that was just the beginning.

We mentioned that crossing the barrier between subpenny and penny territory is a difficult thing for an OTC stock to do, and that it was an occurrence that warranted further attention in and of itself. We’re glad we didn’t let it slip off of our radars because PCTL added another huge performance yesterday. From a daily low of .0127 the stock shot to a new high of .0278! That represents an intraday gain of 119% and measured from our observed low on Monday, a total two-day increase of 212%


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC – Fresh Options Idea -

We won’t ignore the options trading arena completely, with one idea in particular sticking out to us this morning. We are seeing some volatility arise as the stock is in a prime bottom-bounce position, and are going to want to track a couple of ideas through to the end of the week.

We are going to potentially target the THC Weekly $18-18.50 Calls, which will stand to perform well over the remaining three sessions of the week if it can begin to establish some momentum off of the bottom you can on the chart below.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Explosion

Adobe, Inc. ADBE – Update

ADBE continued its incredible performance just as we said it would in yesterday morning’s premarket report.  We had already tracked our idea, the ADBE Weekly $285-290 Calls to gains roughly in the area of 150-230% on Wednesday.

The updated figures after yesterday’s huge session are very impressive indeed. Here are the total possible gains that options daytraders could have netted off of our alert. 

$289 Calls – Range: 2.94-17.49 – Max Gain: 495%
$289.50 Calls – Range: 1.83-14.68 – Max Gain: 702%
$290 Calls – Range: 1.07-12.52 – Max Gain: 1070%

This is the reason that we spend most of our time these days focusing on quick-strike options ideas. The short-term gain potential exceeds even that of the OTC Markets, which used to be our primary area of focus, many years ago.

Speaking of options success, the other fresh ideas we included in yesterday’s morning report also produced some fantastic intraday gain chances:

$289 Calls – Range:.45-1.30 – Max Gain: 189%
$289 Calls – Range: .10-.40  – Max Gain: 300%

Oracle Corp. ORCL Weekly $55-56 Calls
$55 Calls – Range: .84-2.53 – Max Gain: 201%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LLNKF Update

LiteLink Technologies, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LLNKF)(CSE:LLT) – Update

This morning, we are taking another look back at LLNKF, a stock we provided our readers with a special report on just a few sessions ago, on Thursday.

In the following day’s report, we commented on LLNKF’s move from a low of .1157 on up to .197 (+70%), and explicitly stated: “we definitely want to be on the lookout for a possible continuation of momentum. We’ll look for this play to register higher highs and higher lows and continue this bullish uptrend.”

On Friday the stock increased its high by a slight margin, and yesterday, ramped up even further. This time, it hit a new high of .30, which marks a fantastic three-session upswing and total gain opportunity of 159% Yesterday’s performance came on the stock’s highest volume on record.

Anytime we see a stock double from our initial alert, it’s always a great idea to take risk out of the equation, by taking half of the investment off of the table. This way, we’re playing with the house’s money, and always in a position to where any further gains are pure profit. Another smart tactic is to use a mental stop-loss order at a key support level. Yesterday’s swing low of .1993 would be a good area to do just that. So for example, if the PPS drops below that key support, it might be a good idea to lock in the rest of our profits. These are just a couple tricks of the trade that we like to go by.


The TJX Companies. Inc.  TJX - Fresh Options Idea

Also catching our attention this morning is the TJX chain, with the company producing favorable Q1 figures in this morning’s release. With a solid beat on earnings, and bolstered full year guidance, things are in good shape for a potential options trade here.

We’re going to place the TJX 06/21 $52.50-55 Calls on watch to correlate with the activity that we’re observing here in the premarket.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MIK Options & More

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) – Recap

We went bullish on the SPY in our premarket report yesterday, and thanks to two distinct intraday pushes for the markets, there were opportunities across the board for our highlighted contracts throughout the session.

Those targets were the daily SPY 03/18 $281-282 Calls, and we saw significant moves from all three. The $281.50 Calls traded in a range from .34-1.06 for an overall upswing of 212% while the $282′s traded up from .15 to .58, a gain of 287% (We mistakenly lost exact data for the $281 calls, but the gain opportunities were very similar to those of the other two strike points.) 


The Michaels Companies, Inc. MIK

We also want to signal a set of contracts on MIK, which was the one listing on this morning’s earnings calendar that jumped out to us the most. Michaels posted an earnings beat, but also happens to be trading near its annual lows.

We’re going to approach this like we would any other play with bottom-bouncer written all over it, by signaling some longer-term calls to give ourselves some extra time to see the recovery play out. We’re going to radar the MIK 04/18 $12.50 Calls and monitor their activity in the days and weeks ahead.
