Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Yesterday’s Major Movers & More

It was a great start to the 2017 trading year yesterday, with multiple movers offering up opportunities for solid single-session gains. In addition to a handful of the stocks we were watching streaking their way upward, our options idea also fared well, with the markets in general kicking off the year on a strong note.

Mountain High Acquisitions Corp. MYHI – First up is MYHI, which exhibited a big breakout from a low of  .09 and running as high as .1745. That was good for the largest intraday gain, coming in at 94% and occurring on considerable volume.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation with MYHI, and possibly be on the lookout for a dip-and-rip pattern. Should the stock briefly come down off of these highs, there could be another opportunity to time the subsequent bounce. 

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV – ORRV has continuously pushed the envelope since we first began talking about it a week ago today and yesterday was no exception. We observed yet another big run, with the stock jumping from .0019 to a new high of .0036. That goes down as an intraday pop of 89%, and extends our observed range on this play inside a week by a considerable margin.

As of the .0005 we witnessed last week, yesterday’s top mark represented a total upswing of 620%

*Side Note: Anyone who participates in our daily traders chats could have gotten in even lower the previous day, at .0003, from which point yesterday’s new high marked a move of 1100%  *Send a Skype contact request to “stocksumo” to participate in our in-session traders chats!

Hiru Corp HIRU – Another excellent play was HIRU, which started the day off at a low of .0008 and persisted with a steady climb throughout the session to wind up closing at its high of day, at .0013.

That was a daily increase of  63% and of course, anytime we see a stock end the session at its high, we always want to be on the lookout for continued momentum.

ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY

Suspecting that the bullish premarket sentiment would spill over into yesterday’s trading session, we signaled some options in the SVXY chain, namely the SVXY Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.

While we didn’t sweep the range in terms of hefty gains, there was considerable open interest in two sets which allowed for significant profits- the $94 and $95 Calls. The $94′s ran from  2.30-3.64 (+58%), and the $95′s traded up from 1.75 as high as 3.39 (+94%)

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ANF – Fresh Options Idea

We want to signal a range of options ideas for ANF, which is just coming off of its annual lows, and showing some signs of a reversal.

We’ll want to be ready to take advantage of a recovery, by using the ANF 02/17 $12-15 Calls, which gives us several weeks for a rebound to materialize. That being said, the gain opportunities could come sooner rather than later, so we want to be mindful of that.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off the New Year

Good Morning Traders, and Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a pleasant holiday season, but now that the new year has begun, we also hope everyone’s ready to dive right back in and take 2017 by the horns! We’re looking forward to another year of market action and tracking hot plays whether they be pennies, big boards, options, or whatever! Wherever we see even the slightest chance for a big opportunity we’ll be there, so join us- the 2017 trading year starts now!

Continued Cannabis Sector Surges

We’ve been all over the cannabis space for years, but the scope and intensity of our observation has been decidedly more focused in past weeks and months.  On Sunday, legalized recreational marijuana took effect in California and elsewhere, so you can all expect that the pot sector will be an area of continued interest as the industry as a whole is set to undergo huge growth and change in coming months.

We had a few reminders appear in Friday’s premarket report from among the vast group of pot plays we’ve tracked over an extremely long period at this point. PHOT and VAPE, two old favorites, both followed that up with solid intraday performances to close out 2016.

PHOT posted a nice intraday move from .0167-.0198 (+19%), while VAPE ran from .0122-.0167 (+37%).  We’ll continue to track these and other cannabis stocks, including but not limited to: MCOA, HEMP, MCIG, GRNH, TRTC, MYDX, MYHI, CHIT

More Updates:

Oceanic Research & Recovery Inc. ORRV - We began mentioning ORRV on Wednesday, and subsequently would witness a low of .0005. Friday the stock posted a huge finish to the year, running up to a new high of .00271. That marked a three-session swing of 442%  We’re going to be keeping an eye peeled for the possibility of continued momentum.

ERF Wireless, Inc. ERFB – Our first tag of ERFB came three Friday’s ago, at which time we would observe a low of .0013. It too broke out to new high on Friday, reaching .02. From our initial low that works out to an overall increase of 54% More gains could be on the horizon in this case as well, so we’ll be watching.

 Vanguard Natural Resources, Inc. VNR

We also want to put VNR on our radars as we kick things off on this short week. We’ve included a snapshot below and as you can see, a triple-bottom formation is currently in effect. We are going to be watching for a reversal, which, if the last couple of cycles are any indicator, could lead to a pretty significant PPS increase.

ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY

With the markets as a whole appearing to want to open up 2017 on a high note, we’re going to signal a range of bullish options calls for the SVXY ETF. We’ll be monitoring the SVXY Weekly $93.50-95.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APRE News, Options Ideas & More

Aperture Health, Inc. APRE

We’re circling back to APRE once again this morning, after the stock has logged two nice intraday performances subsequent to our in-depth report on Monday. That morning we saw a nice 59% pop, and yesterday the stock not only managed to maintain support at the previous day’s swing low as we hoped it would, but also made a 23% intraday upswing(.031-.038), not to mention closing at its high of day. That works out to cumulative gains over that two-session span totaling 82%

This morning’s area of focus is going to be the fresh PR that just hit the APRE newswire, regarding wholly-owned sub CSS Alliance, and the striking of a new distribution deal. (Link Below)

We’ll be on the lookout for added attention brought from the PR to potentially give the stock another boost. As we’ve stated previously, due to the low-float, low-volume nature of APRE, the stock is subject to significant swings on relatively little buying pressure.

NEW YORK, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ – Aperture Health, Inc. (OTC APRE), is pleased to announce that the company’s wholly owned subsidiary CSS Alliance has formed a worldwide exclusive distribution agreement with House Tech. Co. Ltd to become a hub in the United States to distribute, market and sell new technologies ranging from green solar powered A/C units, and powerless generators, as well as solar energy.  >>View Full PR

ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures SVXY

We’ve yet to signal any options ideas this week, which is uncharacteristic for us, so we’re also going to be zeroing in on a possible play in that arena. The markets have been strong of late, with the VIX continuously trending downward, so we’re looking at an inverse analog of that note in SVXY.

Our specific area of interest is going to be the SVXY Weekly $53.50-55 Calls.

Bank of America Corp. BAC

Speaking of possible options plays, we’re also taking note of BAC 07/15 $15 Calls which have been shown to have abnormally high open interest over the past couple sessions. Whenever we see serious cash of this magnitude flow into a set of contracts, it raises our attention. As the saying goes, you’ve got to follow the money! Therefore, we’ll be keeping this set of contracts on a long-term watchlist.
