Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PULM Review & More

Pulmatrix, Inc. PULM

The first thing we want to talk about this morning is the recent performance of a stock we tagged for observation roughly three weeks ago on the 11th of March. PULM was under consolidation in the sessions that followed, and over the past week, has really blossomed into a solid runner.

From its recent low of 1.05, the stock has risen as high as 3.01, which marks an increase of 187% PULM was trading above $4 just a few months ag0. We’ll continue to monitor to see if the stock can recover the rest of its lost ground.


FRESH OPTIONS IDEAS

Walgreens Boots Alliance WBA – Here we would like to signal a range of puts in the WBA chain on the heels of the company’s whiff on Q2 earnings expectations, and slashed guidance. Our targets this midweek are going to be the WBA Weekly $59-57.50 Puts, which may be helped along by a lackluster February Durable Orders report this morning.
_____

Cabot Corp. CBT - In this case, we simply like the technical setup of the chart. If CBT makes the kind of rebound it appears to want to make, we are going to see some solid opportunities out of the CBT 05/17 $40 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FTNW Ripping & More

Unity Group, Inc. UNIT

To kick off the fresh trading week yesterday, we tagged quite a large number of stocks in our Extended Watchlist, including UNIT with the note ‘Bottom-Watch’ attached. The stock had been absolutely pummeled in previous sessions, and a rebound appeared imminent.

We didn’t have to wait any time at all for that bounce to occur, with the stock posting a heck of an intraday performance. From a low of 8.29, UNIT surged its way up to a daily high of 11.5. That marks a very solid first-day performance for this play amounting to a gain of 37% We will continue to track the stock for further gains as the week the progresses.


General Electric Co. GE

We also wanted to recap the recent performance of GE. We mentioned this play shortly after the new year on January 8th, and observed a low of 8.18 the following day. Since then,we’ve seen fairly steady growth out of the stock, as it has run from that low up to a new high of 11.75 yesterday.

That represents an overall increase of 47% in roughly 7 weeks’ time. GE also just cracked its 200DMA yesterday, with the RSI about to head into the power zone, so we’ll want to continue our monitoring of its activity in coming sessions as well.



FTE Networks, Inc. FTNW

After being in a general downtrend since June, we’re seeing some sparks of life from FTNW, which is roaring up off of its 52-week lows as a result of announcing over $115M in new contracts. We are going to place this on our radar and strap in for what could be an impressive push off of its bottom.

Up considerably in the premarket, there are resistance areas roughly around $4, $6 and $10, and FTNW has the potential to crack some or all of those levels with the surge off of this latest news.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ATVI Winners & More

Activision Blizzard. Inc. ATVI – Big Winner

We signaled a range of calls in the Activision chain yesterday morning in our premarket report following the company’s earnings report, which were bullish despite the fact that ATVI’s quarterly figures were a disappointment. We indicated that we would put the ATVI Weekly $42-43.50 Calls on watch, and they were good ideas across the board.

In each of our designated contract sets, we saw not one, but two remarkable intraday swings, that gave traders plenty of chances for single-session profits of a significant nature. We’ve listed all the moves and total possible gains below:

$42 Calls - Move #1: 1.48-3.20 (+116%)  | Move #2: 1.32-3.35 (+154%)

Fresh Options Idea:

AstraZeneca plc AZN Weekly $38-39.50 Calls


Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. PTX

Even as we continue our excellent 2019 track record for options ideas, we don’t want to forget about the stocks on our watchlist that have been performing well.

A fantastic example of that is a stock we tagged as a bottom watch play back on December 20th. Over the past seven weeks, the stock has ramped up quite impressively, leading to a new high yesterday that we wanted to recap today.

From our observed low of .32 on PTX subsequent to our alert, to yesterday’s new high, represents an increase of 588%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Zillow on a Roll

Zillow Group, Inc. Z – Update

We’ve been tracking Zillow since last Wednesday, at which time the stock was trading at a low of 27.92. We were prompted to highlight the play after noticing some big Form-4 submissions near the bottom, with a large gap to the upside on the chart. That morning we signaled the Z 01/18 $30-40 Calls which have produced some really nice gains so far.

The stock itself, after 6 consecutive green days, attained a high of 37.20 yesterday, which marked a 33% increase in just over a week’s time. That’s fantastic volatility for a stock in this price range. That activity has led to some mind-numbing gains in our group of tracked contracts. 

The following figures are the ranges  and total possible gains on those from last Wednesday, through yesterday’s highs:

$30 Calls – Range: 1.57-7.43 - Max Gain: 373%
$35 Calls – Range: .57-3.70 – Max Gain: 549%
$40 Calls – Range: .10-1.45 - Max Gain: 1350%


Bottom Watchlist

We also have a couple of longer-term bottom watch plays that we wanted to include in today’s report and monitor for potential rebounds going forward.

We are looking at both Bio-Path Holdings (BPTH) and Ampio Pharmaceitucals (AMPE) in a similar fashion today. Neither stock has shown a great deal of volatility of late, hovering around their recent relative lows for some time. Both charts also boast gaps to the upside. We’ll place this pair on recovery watch in the weeks ahead.
