Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SPOM, SRPT Recaps & More

Winning Pick Review

SPO Global, Inc. SPOM
is a subpenny play that appeared in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and we got some good action out of the stock on our first day of tracking. We witnessed a run from .0042-.0058, which marked a respectable 38% pop on more than triple its monthly average trading volume.

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT – We began talking about SRPT last Wednesday, and cleaned up with a couple of ideas we had for trading weekly options contracts. We tagged it once again in yesterday’s watchlist, and the stock went on to set a new high. It traded in an intraday range from 14.52-18.14 for a 25% gain on the day. The stock is gapping up morning. From our observed low on Wednesday at 10.45, today’s high of 18.80 represents a 80% swing overall.


xG Technology, Inc. XGTI

We’ve tracked this stock in the past, most recently mentioning it in our report on 04/21. It took a few sessions beyond that to see the stock find support at .08, but we’ve seen it inch its way up since, and this morning we witnessed a premarket high of .1751 in the stock.

It marks an upswing of 150% over our observed low, and signals us to pay careful attention in coming sessions.


Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. PTX

PTX is another stock catching our interest after we noticed some abnormal activity on the heels of a large investor boosting his stake in the company while it had simultaneously reached a new 52-week low.

The stock is moving again in the premarket, and will be another worthy candidate for our watchlist as we head into midweek.

The last time one of our tracked plays caught momentum off of a large institutional investor taking up a big position was VLTC. Some of our more seasoned followers will surely remember that stock and the astronomical moves it made in such a situation.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: GLBS Recap & More

Globus Maritime Ltd. GLBS – Update

GLBS was among the shipping sector plays that we were talking about in Friday morning’s premarket report, and it ultimately ended up being the most interesting one of the bunch. The sector as a whole seemed to be buzzing leading into Friday, and the activity that coincided in the GLBS chart, which made several tradeable swings on the day.

It started from the opening bell when the stock initially ran impressively from .66-1.63 for gains of up to 147% right off the bat. We then observed a pullback whereafter the stock bounced from .95 on up to the high of day at 1.78; that added an 87% rip. Subsequent to that, yet another dip and rip carried from .97-1.41, tacking on another 45% upswing.  In total, cumulative single-session gains for GLBS came in at 279% as the stock traded record volume.

We often search for plays with volatility of this magnitude because they can be excellent for quick intraday flips as GLBS demonstrated on Friday. We’ll be interested to see how it establishes itself as things get going this week. More opportunities may be on the horizon.



Bottom Watchlist

The following trio of stocks caught our interest off of our bottom-play scan this morning. In the case of RCPI we’ve got a stock that’s been steadily beaten back into heavily oversold territory, while BIOC and STX have both violently gapped down in recent sessions. We’ll have all three on extended watch for potential bounce-play opportunities.

Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, Inc. RCPI
Biocept Pharmaceuticals,Inc. BIOC
Seagate Technology Public Ltd. Co. STX

We’ve also included a conglomerate snapshot of all three charts:

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SRPT Options Through the Roof & More

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT – Update

We caught SRPT Wednesday on the heels of the stock’s 52-week low, and immediately pounced with an options idea. The SRPT Weekly $10.50 and $11 Calls produced gains of 237% and 159% respectively that day, and when we followed up in yesterday’s premarket report, we made sure readers understood that those gains would “pale in comparison” to the ones we expected once the session kicked off. We were absolutely correct.

The $10.50′s which we caught at .40 on Wednesday, set a new high of 4.23 to extend our total possible gains to 958%   $11′s whose low from Wednesday was .39 rushed to a high of 4.04, marking a two-day swing of 936%

Pertaining to SRPT stock itself, the two-session move has been impressive there as well, trading up in a range from 8.00 to 15.38, for a highly respectable 92% increase. Cheers to any of our followers who caught on with SRPT, because there were profits to be made across the board!


Chatroom Reminder

We don’t inundate our readers with reminders about our daily live traders chats (Open to all, just send a Skype contact request to ‘stocksumo‘) but every so often we like to give everyone a peek into what typically goes on.

We had our old friend DJ provide the room with a trio of ideas at midday in the shipping sector and all three (PRGN, EGLE and DRYS) continued to stack on some serious gains subsequent to the alert.

Once again, we welcome participation on any level from all of our readers, even if you just want to drop in and see what’s buzzing in the room. Just send that Skype contact request to our very own ‘stocksumo’ and he’ll get you in right away!

Bonus Shipping Play: We also want to add GLBS to the list of shippers we’ll be monitoring after this sector-wide momentum boost. We’re looking for a continuation of that today and possibly into next week.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Earnings Season Continues to Yield Results

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT – Update

We caught SRPT yesterday after the stock had just registered a new annual low on Tuesday, and recognized an opportunity to pounce on some short-term gains using the options chain. We said we wanted to see the stock flirt with the swing high from the previous session, and it did just that. Our options idea of tracking the SRPT Weekly $10.50 and $11 Calls worked out immediately.

We witnessed a range on the $10.50′s from .40-1.35 (+237%) and from .39-1.01 on the $11′s, an intraday pop of 159% But those big gains are going to pale in comparison to the new highs we’re going to witness this morning as the stock has gapped up with vigor in the premarket this morning to a new high of 14.40.

In the stock itself, that’s an impressive overnight swing of 38% and as we said, those options contracts are sure to show us new highs as things get going today. All in all we’d have to say that we made a heck of a bottom call on SRPT, and will continue to track its progress.


Options – More Updates, More Ideas

We also want to follow up with the Idea we had from earlier in the week, the BP Weekly $32-33.50 Calls, which already provided us gains ranging from 30-95% on Tuesday. There were intraday profits to be made for the second straight day, which were as follows:

$32 Calls – Trading Range: 1.55-1.88 – Max Gain: 21%
$32.50 Calls – Trading Range: 1.10-1.40 – Max Gain: 27%
$33 Calls– Trading Range: .62-1.06 – Max Gain: 71%
$33.50 Calls – Trading Range: .35-.57 – Max Gain: 63%

We had a good two-day run with BP, but with Q1 earnings season in full swing, its time to turn our attention to the next opportunity.

That’s going to come in the form of Facebook Inc. FB options. The stock is gapping up to new all-time highs at the moment in the wake of its own earning beat, currently trading over $121 in the premarket.

Provided it holds support at the previous all-time high of 117.59 on any pullbacks, we are going to want to pay close attention to the FB Weekly $118-122 Calls. If the momentum appears strong enough, we may even consider rolling up our strike price to the $123-level and higher, as the situation dictates.


Others to Watch

Finally, we have a couple of other plays to add to a watchlist this morning. Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS, and Immune Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IMNP.

We first began tracking AEZS in 2016 in late January, shortly before witnessing a low of 2.71 (02/11). The stock has made a couple of nice moves in recent months, and is currently gapping up in the premarket to new high 4.87. That represents an 80% over our observed low from a few months back. We’ll have our eye on its activity as things kick off this morning.

In the case of IMNP, we’ve got a stock that has seen a good deal of insider buying, and is trying to maintain an uptrend off of its recent lows over the past few sessions. It’s gapping up slightly this morning to .43, so we’re going to want to watch for a break of the current 50DMA of .46 today.

We also want to pay attention to Dreamworks Animation SKG Inc. DWA which we signaled in yesterday’s report over buyout talks that were occurring. The buyout has been confirmed, so hold on to your hats if you made entry at yesterday’s prices!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: BP Options Review & More

BP plc (BP) – Options Review

Our fresh options idea from yesterday morning’s premarket report was was to track the BP Weekly $32-33.50 Calls for possible daytrade opportunities and we got just what we were looking for.

The strength of the company Q1 earnings report kicked the PPS up high enough to produce some solid moves out of each play in our highlighted range of contracts:

$32 Calls – Trading Range: 1.20-1.56 – Max Gain: 30%
$32.50 Calls – Trading Range:  .79-1.10 – Max Gain: 39%
$33 Calls– Trading Range:  .49-.73  – Max Gain: 49%
$33.50 Calls – Trading Range: .20-.39 – Max Gain: 95%

BP closed at its highs and traded even higher in the post-market, and we’re seeing a gap-up in the premarket this morning as well. We’ll look for a continuation of momentum into today’s session, wherein those options could be in line for further gains. In addition to watching those contracts, we may look to roll our strike price up in the event BP can surge past the $34-mark.


Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. SRPT – Fresh Idea

SRPT caught our eye this morning as were searching for bottom-bounce candidates, as the stock fits the bill to a tee. After being beaten back to new 52-week lows this week, the stock posted a strong recovery session yesterday that has us thinking about potential options plays.

We’re going to monitor SRPT to see if it can test yesterday’s swing high of 11.50. We’re going to be tracking the activity in the SRPT Weekly $10.50 and $11 Calls.

Bonus Bottom-Watchlist:

That same search yielded a couple of other stocks trading at or near their own 52-week lows. We always like a good bounce-play and these are the types of stocks that most often produce them.

Active Power, Inc. ACPW took a pounding into heavily oversold territory yesterday after a sizable gap-down, so we’ll be watching that over the next few sessions for a possible snap-back.

First Acceptance,Inc FAC rebounded a little after setting a new annual low yesterday as well, so we’ll look for possible signs of a continued recovery there.
