Blue Horseshoe Stocks: XUII and PLUG Updates

Xumanii International Holdings Corp. XUII

XUII continued to run following the afternoon update we sent out yesterday, achieving a new high of day just prior to the close at .0026, marking a full 100% move in just a single day. The stock closed just one tick below at .0025, and ended up trading 744M shares, well over 10x the 3-month average volume going into the session.

Moving forward, we’ll be keeping a close eye on XUII, which will need to maintain support at or above .0018 in the worst case scenario to hold our interest.  That would be our theoretical stop-loss point, and as you can see on the included chart, the next major area of resistance doesn’t crop up until .0033.

Based on the momentum into yesterday’s close, we may be looking at a gap up from XUII first thing this morning. Ideally we’d like to see the 50DMA of .0024 hold as support.

Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

Reigning as one of our most successful picks of all time, PLUG has appeared in our reports more than 40 times since we first caught it at .135, near all-time lows on February 28th, 2013. We tracked this play from those levels all the way up to an astonishing high of 11.72 roughly a year later, so PLUG will always hold a special place in our trading hall of fame, and never really get taken off of our watchlist.

We want to bring PLUG back to the forefront of the conversation again this morning, on the heels of a PR that just hit the wires, regarding a big purchase order from the world’s largest retailer. The stock is gearing up for a gap-up in pre-market trading, so we’ll want to keep a sharp eye on this one. This is the kind of press that can lead to rapid short-term gains.

Cannabis Sector Update
After an influx of new subscribers joined us over the weekend, we’d like to take this time to welcome our new friends, and try to get you up to speed as soon as possible. In a time that now spans three calendar years, we have been vigorously tracking numerous marijuana-related stocks with some very profitable results.

Last week (possibly aided by the first stores opening for sales of recreational marijuana in Colorado), the sector as a whole began to heat up once again, necessitating heavy discussion in our daily reports.  As can be expected when several sessions of frenzied uptrending carries stocks as high as we saw many of our cannabis plays, several of those stocks began to consolidate on Friday.

The exceptions were GreenGrow Technologies, Inc. GRNH, and Hemp, Inc. HEMP; High volume spread over multi-day runs often leads to high volatility as well, as in the case with HEMP, which did consolidate to a low of .021, but followed that up with a rebound back to .032, a 52% intraday swing.

GRNH continued its run from the previous session where we had witnessed a low of .045, and barreled its way to a high of .124. We’ll take overnight gains in excess of 176% any day!

As for the rest of the pot stocks we’ve been tracking that have relaxed a bit, we are still eager to see how they respond this week, and will be on the lookout for any chances we might have at bounce plays. Additionally, news of how the first week of sales went in Colorado will be sure to get even more eyes turned toward this burgeoning market sector. Check back for future updates, as we stay tuned in every step of the way.

Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. PPHM 

Speaking of stocks that we’ve been tracking since 2012, PPHM has proven itself a winner for us on multiple occasions over the years, and our most recent alert is turning out to be no different. Following that last mention, we observed a low 1.35, which at this morning’s pre-market high at 1.99 represents a 37% increase.

FDA-related news out this morning could fuel a serious push in a Northerly direction, so we won’t want to take our eyes off of PPHM for one moment as trading commences this morning.

TUSTIN, CA, Jan 06, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPHM), today announced that the company has received Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its lead investigational immunotherapy bavituximab for the potential treatment of second-line non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Plug Power, Inc. PLUG

Like the rest of the mentions in today’s newsletter, our history with PLUG goes back a long time. It has brought us percentage gains which cumulatively number in the thousands, and the New Year has brought new life for this one as well. This past Thursday, we caught PLUG at a low of 1.89, and were pleased at the solid 23% move it provided to 2.33. That figure is increasing this morning, as the stock is trading as high as 2.77 in pre-market action, a gain of 47% over Thursday’s low.

Extended Watchlist:

ARIA, PVG, ATRM, TEMN, INVA & Extended Watchlist

ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  ARIA

ARIA is the first of three solid winners to come off of our Extended Watchlist from Friday morning. The stock began by touching a daily low of 3.30, followed by a run into the 4.04 high, marking the opportunity for intraday gains of up to 33%

Just a word of caution, the company has a pending lawsuit in which it is being sued by a multiple plaintiffs in a securities fraud case that will commence next month. On October 9, 2013, the Company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration placed a partial clinical hold on all new patient enrollment in clinical trials of Iclusig, following reports of non-serious and serious adverse events in Iclusig-treated patients. Following this news, the price of ARIAD shares dropped nearly 66%, or $11.31 per share, from the previous day’s closing price of $17.14 per share, to a closing price of $5.83 per share on October 9, 2013, on extremely heavy volume.

As a result, investors who purchased ARIA stock between Dec.’11 and Oct.’13 are eligible to take part in the class-action suit.

Pretium Resources, Inc.  PVG

PVG was another substantial gainer for us on Friday, bringing us gains to the tune of 48% as the stock tore out of the gate, pausing only briefly near its low of 3.93 before skyrocketing as high as 5.80 early in the session. For the remainder of the day, PVG held much of those daily gains, and managed a strong close at 5.32.

That kind of momentum makes PVG a good candidate for a possible continuation of momentum, so we want to make sure we’re paying close attention as we begin this short trading-week.

Aetrium, Inc. ATRM

ATRM is another one that came out of the gate with guns blazing on Friday. After opening at 8.46, the stock spiked sharply to a morning high of 10.45, nice 24% move.

Later in the session, we observed a bounce from 5.60 back up to 6.68, which added an opportunity for an additional 19% gain, bringing the total cumulative gains for ATRM to a very respectable 43%

When added to the gains we saw from our other selections, our total possible gains for Friday’s session topped out at 124% All in a day’s work!

Team Nations Corp. TEMN
Inova Technologies, Inc. INVA

We observed these two sub-penny plays hitting our scanner on Friday, trading substantial volume. We want to be on the lookout for any possible continuation of momentum heading into this week.

In the case of INVA, the stock was trading at more than a penny as recently as October, and is now coming off of a bottom, so it will interesting to see how much of its lost ground it can gain back. A return to October levels would mean gains up to and exceeding 100% from its current price.
