TrovaGene, Inc. TROV – Review

We last mentioned TROV on December 18th, and at the time the stock was trading down to an annual low of .503. Since then, we’ve seen a slow and steady recovery, which was kicked into a higher gear yesterday following news of Trovagene and PoC Capital entering an agreement to fund the development of Onvansertib in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer.

The stock ended up hitting .73, marking a 45% rise since we mentioned it. We will want to continue monitoring TROV for further advances from this point forward.

Burlington Stores, Inc. BURL

Also freshly formulated in yesterday’s report was our idea for the BURL Weekly $141-144 Calls, and we were not disappointed on that front either. While the bottom half of the range was pushed too deep into the money for any serious activity, we quickly zeroed in on the top performers, the $143 and $144 Calls.

The $143′s managed a huge run from 1.45-5.80, marking an intraday surge of 300% while the $144‘s posted a range of 1.40-4.00, which works out to a 186% rip.
