Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Quick Strike Ideas

India Globalization Capital, Inc. IGCC

First up this morning is a recap of IGCC following its inclusion in our premarket extended watchlist yesterday. The stock didn’t blow its lid, but it did continue the solid run of intraday performances off of its lows from earlier this week which were precipitated by the company’s recent delisting from the NASDAQ down to the OTC Markets.

The stock traded in a range from 1.22-1.84 before tapering back off, which stood as an intraday gain of 51% We’re going to look for IGCC to continue to fill the remaining gap on the chart. As you can see on the included snapshot, the MACD is also beginning to converge toward a bullish cross.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: More New Highs on YGYI

Youngevity International Inc. YGYI

We’re coming right back to YGYI for the second straight morning, after the stock once again pushed to new 7-year highs on some of the biggest volume the stock has ever seen.

We slated this play for observation twelve days ago, and its performance across that span has been rather impressive. Our observed low on YGYI of 6.00 has quickly given way to the stock’s new high of 16.20, which represents a gain of 170% in a time frame of less than two weeks.

The stock closed very near to its high of day, and the record volume continues, so with that kind of momentum, we will undoubtedly continue to track its movements as it continues to pierce its way into blue skies.


Fresh Options Ideas

Morgan Stanley MS – In the case of Morgan Stanley, we’re going to come in with an options idea on the heels of the company’s Q3 earnings report. Our target contracts are going to be the MS Weekly $43.50 & $44 Calls.

Ferrari N.V. RACE – Ferrari is simply looking like a technically-sound bottom play at the moment, so we are going to signal some longer term calls here to coincide with a possible upcoming rebound. We’ll radar the RACE 10/26 $120-124 Calls here.
