Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom Plays & More

Syros Pharmaceutical, Inc. SYRS

First up on the docket for this morning is a potential bottom play that we’re going to want to put on our radars over the coming sessions. SYRS reported some less-than-ideal clinical data, and the stock got absolutely crushed yesterday.

We don’t ignore news developments, but we are constantly looking for over-abused stocks to pounce on during their recoveries, and one definitely seems in order for this play at the present juncture. The filling of the gap that was left on the chart by the sell-off would mean roughly 50% in gains from the current PPS.


Tenet Healthcare Corp. THC

We made it known yesterday morning that we had an interest in tracking the THC 01/26 $13.50-14.50 Calls as the stock appeared to be ripe for continuing its recent bottom-bounce. THC did just that, but our tracked options didn’t heat up too much yet, posting gains of just 15-24% on the day. That could be set to change today, as the stock is showing signs of a gap up and possible continued upward momentum this morning.

We’ll be sure to make monitoring the ongoing activity here one of our top priorities for the rest of this week. This may only be the beginning of THC’s rebound off of its recently established new annual lows.


Riot Blockchain, Inc. RIOT

We began tracking RIOT on November 2nd at a low of 6.33, mentioning it three times over the course of the following month. The stock saw a massive run to 21.76, for a serious move of 244%

That was followed up by a pullback to a low of 12.01 on 11/30, and since then the stock has been making a push for those highs once again, yesterday reaching 23.67. That’s an added swing of 97% on top of the previous run we witnessed, and it leaves us interested to see if the stock can re-test and possibly breach the highs off of the previous run.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DXTR, Options Recaps & More

Dextera Surgical, Inc. DXTR

Among our extended watchlist plays slated for observation in yesterday’s premarket report, was DXTR, a stock that we intially tagged on June 1st, and in which we witnessed a subsequent low of .1745. We included a second reminder on June 12th, and of course once again yesterday morning.

Yesterday the stock put up a fine intraday performance en route to setting new highs for us. From its daily low of .275, it ran as high as .3855, which comes out to a 40% jump. From our original low earlier this month, DXTR has risen 121% Volume over the past week has picked up considerably, and yesterday the stock traded more than five times its monthly average volume.

It also held more than half of its daily gains on that volume. In such instances, we always lookout for a continuation of momentum into the ensuing session.


Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI – Options Idea

In the wake of a hearty earnings beat on DRI, whose chains include Olive Garden, Red Lobster and LongHorn Steakhouse among others, we focused on some options ideas, the DRI 07/21 $90-97.50 Calls.

While the moves weren’t quite on the level of many of our options calls, which often yield percentage gains in the hundreds and thousands, there’s still plenty of time before expiration and all the contracts in our observed range got off to a solid start.

$90 Calls – Range: 3.40-5.70 – Max Gain: 68%
$92.50 Calls – Range: 1.94-3.50 – Max Gain: 80%
$95 Calls – Range: 1.02-1.95 – Max Gain: 91%
$97.50 Calls – Range: .52-.94 – Max Gain: 81%

As we pointed out, these contracts don’t expire for a few weeks, so we’ll continue to keep an eye out for further activity in DRI.

Fresh Options Idea: Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. CBI Weekly $20-22 Calls


Sophiris Bio, Inc. SPHS – Update

We want to keep SPHS on watch as well. We tagged this as a bottom play on Monday, and it has since made a modest move from a low of 2.07 to 2.41. While it just works out to a nominal gain of 16% so far, we’ll remain interested for as long as it maintains its new trend of recording higher highs and higher lows as it has each day this week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Multiple Winners & More

Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We initially brought MARA into the fold on Thursday morning, when we highlighted it in our premarket report as a bottom-bouncer. The stock had just made a considerable move of off its recent relative lows the session prior, and looked set to continue into a multi-day run.

That certainly came to pass, with a solid performance on Thursday leading into yet another for Friday. On Thursday we observed a low of .22 and a moderate run into the .30′s but Friday, things ramped up to another level with MARA running from .24-.48 for an even 100% move on the day and a total rise of 118% over a two-day span.

That’s certainly a heck of a bottom-bouncer call. If things were to progress in a similar fashion to kick off the new trading week, today MARA could be looking at the fifty-cent range or better.


Defense Technologies International, Corp. DTII

We tagged DTII in Friday morning’s extended watchlist, and were very pleased with the solid intraday performance yielded by the play. The stock ran from a low of .0042 to as high as .0075 on the day, marking a move of 79%

The PPS pop was accompanied by a considerable influx of volume, on the order of more than six times the monthly average of shares changing hands. The past two sessions, in terms of price action and liquidity, have blown all others of the past few months out of the water, so we’re interested in seeing whether the stock can sustain this level of activity moving forward.


AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. AVEO

We also tagged AVEO on Friday morning for the first time in a couple years, and the stock promptly turned around and set a new 52-week high on the day.  While the move itself was relatively modest, running 31% from 1.05 to 1.38, it did occur on mammoth volume, just a hair shy of 22X times the monthly average volume.

It did lose having held more than half of its daily advance, and is gapping up slightly in the premarket today, so we’ll definitely keep a slot reserved for AVEO on our watchscreens as we kick things off today.


Bed Bath and Beyond, Inc. BBBY – Options Recap

We went bearish on Bed Bath & Beyond on Friday with a set of options contracts to follow in the wake of their disappointing quarterly results, and it turned out to be a fantastic idea.

Our targets were the BBBY Weekly $31.50-30.50 Puts and regardless of which strike point was chosen, sizable gains were there for the taking:

$31.50 Puts – Range: 1.07-2.07 – Max Gain: 93%
$31 Puts – Range: .64-1.58 – Max Gain: 147%
$30.50 Puts – Range: .31-1.05 – Max Gain: 239%


Adobe Systems Inc. ADBE – Options Recap

We signaled some options for the ADBE chain on Wednesday, and the stock finished the week strong, and we witnessed some nice gains there as well. We were looking at the ADBE 06/30 $147 & $148 Calls, and both ideas have worked out nicely thus far.

The $147′s traded up from .35-.62 (+77%) while the $148′s ran from .17-.35 (+106%). Granted the nature of Friday’s session for ADBE, and these contracts not expiring until the end of this week, we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see these gains extended before it’s all said and done.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BRAV Recap & More

Bravada International, Ltd. BRAV

We tagged BRAV in Friday morning’s premarket report after noticing increased volume and price action in the stock on our routine morning scan. It responded with one heck of a strong intraday performance, allowing traders a shot at a double bagger on the day.

BRAV traded up from its early morning low of .00128 to hit a high of .0028 shortly after 12:40pm, which was good for a 118% rip, and it came on 20X the 30-day average volume.


Deere & Co. DE – Friday Recap

We wanted to briefly mention our DE options idea for Friday’s session, the DE Weekly $118-121 Call.
 We normally include the exact gains made by our options calls, but are unable to on this play due to a technical difficulty, so we apologize for that.

That being said, DE ran from 119.00 to 122.24 on the day, and the potential for multi-bag gains in every single one of our highlighted contracts certainly were there for the taking.


FerroGlobe PLC (GSM)

A stock that’s hitting our scanner today is GSM, which recently came down to touch the lowest prices it had seen in eight months, and has been rebounding in anticipation of Q1 Earnings, which were released yesterday and are untraded-upon.

Additionally, the RSI on the GSM chart is about to break the 50-line, while the MACD has just undergone a bullish cross. A return to PPS levels of just three months ago would produce gains of 30% or more from current pricing. We’ll place GSM on watch over the next few sessions and will be interested to see how the activity plays out.


GlycoMimetics, Inc. GLYC – Recap

We were tracking GLYC late last week, and it turned out to be a rousing success. The stock saw a low of 7.21 on Thursday following our premarket alert, and on Friday it hit 14.64, for a two-session swing of 103% which is fantastic for a stock in this price range.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Chatroom Call, SPU Update & More

Another Great Chatroom Call

We’ve been advocating for our daily live trader’s chats pretty heavily lately, and this morning we’ve got yet another example of why. We compile and publish our daily reports every morning between 15-30 minutes prior to the opening bell. We still manage to find great opportunities in the premarket, but sometimes the real movers don’t reveal themselves until regular trading commences. That’s where the chatroom comes in, giving us and our participants the chance to ID solid plays on the fly.

BLDV was one such play, which, subsequent to our chatter’s mention, went on a run from .0005-.0017 for a fantastic intraday rip of 240%

Our chats are open to any of our subscribers who wish to participate, or merely observe, and are conducted exclusively via Skype. Send a contact request to username ‘stocksumo‘ and get involved today! 


SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. SPU

We signaled SPU on Monday morning after noticing that it was searching for a bottom. We were mentioning as much in yesterday’s report , along with the fact that our bottom call had been sharp, after the stock bounced off of the 2.30 mark and began to climb 45% to 3.3299.

We also noted that SPU still had a monster gap on the chart to the upside, and for the second straight session the stock hit a new high. It traded in a range from 2.72 to 4.33, which goes down as an intraday move of 59%  From the previous day’s low, it marked a two-session upswing of 88% which occurred on 21X the monthly average volume.

SPU has already been a great bottom bounce call for us, but with the kind of momentum that’s currently present, we’ll continue to watch for it to register higher highs, and higher lows over coming sessions.
