Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Big Day for TEUM & More

Pareteum, Inc. TEUM

After tagging TEUM in yesterday morning’s extended watchlist, the stock went on to become the top story of the day for us. From the opening bell until shortly prior to lunch hour, the stock make a pretty impressive move from a low of .78 to a high of 1.73. That went down as an intraday push of 122% and it occurred on an incredible 200X the monthly average volume.

TEUM held more than half of its daily advance into the close, and with that kind of price action and liquidity, we’re defeintely going to want to continue to keep a watch over this play. The activity was catalyzed, at least in part, to the company’s declaration that it expects to beat Wall Street’s estimates in its upcoming release of quarterly financials.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

It was a week ago today, just as we were returning from the 4th of July break, that we were commenting on the activity of OPXA, which we had tracked over some pretty nice gains at the beginning of the holiday week.

After a couple of sessions consolidating off of those highs, OPXA geared up for another round this week, rebounding off of support at .633, and re-launching itself to a new high of 1.09 yesterday.  That’s a 72% swing on the rebound, which gives OPXA just the kind of volatility we’re always on the lookout for. It will remain on our radars for the time being.


CableClix (USA), Inc. CCLX

We’re going to put CCLX on watch as a news play this morning, after the company announced the launch of its online TV service aimed at ‘cord-cutters’. It’s a trendy space with a good story, and the stock itself qualifies as a potential bottom play. We’ll certainly want to keep a watch over CCLX moving forward.

CableClix (USA), Inc. (OTCPK:CCLX) is pioneering online TV evolution by designing the first ‘lean-back experience’ for online viewing. Lean-back – continuous delivery of TV broadcast, common for cable TV but not yet for online viewing – gives audiences more viewing time, delivered as uninterrupted play of highly personalized content.

Lean-back play solves the problem of audiences losing hours of viewing time just browsing through menus deciding what to watch next. CableClix’s research – with audiences as well as executives from major online platforms, studios and multi-channel networks – revealed a consistent issue across the video content landscape: usability.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PIXY Review & More

ShiftPixy, Inc. PIXY

As we were mentioning on Monday morning, we included PIXY in Friday’s report on its first ever trading day. Generally speaking we don’t tend to cast our lot in with brand new IPO’s, but a trusted source in our network gave us a heads-up on PIXY, and didn’t let us down.

We of course passed it along to our readers immediately in our premarket report on Friday, and the stock, after two trading days has made some really nice progress.

From the initial opening price of 6.30 we observed in PIXY, it went on to hit a high of 9.70 to kick off the short trading week on Monday. That marks a two-day swing of 54% for this newly-trading juggernaut. We’ll continue to be on the lookout for PIXY to keep recording higher base levels of support.


Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. OPXA

An honorable mention from Monday’s report is OPXA, especially considering that sessions just prior to a holiday break are typically low-key affairs.

The stock put up a solid intraday performance, running 35% from a low of a dollar up to 1.35, and pulling back into the close at 1.15. However, premarket activity this morning has seen the stock trade back to just below Monday’s high. This is one we’ll want to keep on our radar for the time being.


Aphria, Inc. APHQF

We’ve been familiar with APHQF for quite a time, but today will be the first occasion we’ve actually mentioned it in our reports.

Today, we wanted to point out that the company released two PR’s yesterday, the more significant of which was the announcement of a 1-year cannabis supply deal with a licensed Canadian medical provider which will bring upwards of $5M in revenue beginning midway through next year. We’ll provide links to both PR’s so you can check them out for yourself.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TWTR Options & More

Globus Maritime, Ltd. GLBS

We included GLBS as a part of our extended watchlist yesterday after noticing that the stock had produced a solid session on Tuesday. Our hunch that the run could continue proved to be good, as the stock posted another nice intraday performance.

GLBS traded in a range from a low of 5.122 to a high of 8.769, a move of 71% and it came on more than seven times the monthly average volume. We’ll keep a slot on our watchscreens reserved for GLBS in the event it maintains its upward momentum and strings together a multi-day run.


Agora Holdings, Inc. AGHI

We’ve continued to follow AGHI as it has seen some consolidation over the past few sessions, and the lower it has crept, the more attractive it has begun to look as a bounceplay opportunity.

If you notice on the included chart, the stock has a recent track record of making a serious run-up from current PPS levels. The last time it traded below a dime, that was followed by a huge pop to more than .20. That’s just the kind of rebound we’ll be looking for as the stock searches for support.



Twitter, Inc. TWTR – Options Idea

In conjunction with buyout rumors that have been swirling around Twitter, we happen to like the look of the present chart, and thus we’d like to formulate a corresponding options idea. We’ve had a reasonable amount of success with the TWTR options chain in the past, and current conditions seem favorable enough to signal an extended-term idea today.

We’re going to place the TWTR 01/20 $19 and $20 Calls for the time being, with the added caveat that a buyout actually coming to fruition would very likely necessitate an adjustment to our strike prices.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Kicking Off the Short Week

Options Ideas

SPDR S&P500 ETF (SPY) -  It’s been awhile since we dabbed in some SPY options and the fund is gapping up moderately in the premarket, so as we kick off this holiday-shortened 3.5 day week, we thought we’d float an idea for some calls across everyone’s desk this morning. We’re going to focus on the SPY 11/23 $218.50-220 Calls. for possible daytrades and/or swing trades over the next few sessions.

Given the Thanksgiving break on Thursday followed by just a half day for Black Friday, these contracts, which would normally be weeklies expiring on Friday, will instead expire Wednesday afternoon, so we’ll be monitoring them up to that point.

We’ll hold to this idea as long as the SPY doesn’t dip below that 218.50-mark on any pullbacks.
______

Tyson Foods, Inc. TSN – Next up on the menu of options ideas today is Tyson, which we’re going to go in the opposite direction with, signaling some puts to track on the heels of an earnings miss.

We’re going to zero in on the TSN Weekly $62-59 Puts in the event that TSN records a continued backslide. Unlike the previously mentioned idea, these do expire at the end of Friday’s session (1PM) so we’ll have the entire week to watch these contracts.

______

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – An old-time favorite from the past is making another appearance this morning, in PBR. We noticed the stock coming back down recently after a surge well past the $10 mark last month, and this morning, it is re-testing the $10-level with a solid premarket gap-up.

We’re going te set ourselves up tracking the PBR $9.50-10.50 Calls (also expiring Friday @1PM), which could be in line for some serious moves if the stock can maintain its present momentum through the session and perhaps over the course of this short week.


Dominovas Energy Corp. DNRG

This is a play that we’ve mentioned on occasion in the past, most recently two Friday’s ago, when we tagged it at .0014 and saw a decent 44% run to .0023 the following day.

Since then the stock has consolidated back down to that .0014 level, and we’re noticing a PR out this morning that could help DNRG on its next leg-up. (>>View PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DRYS Recap & Much More

Dry Ships, Inc. DRYS

Yesterday we noticed that DRYS, a stock that has been in heavy decline since early this spring, had strung together a couple of decent sessions last week, so we tagged it for observation in our watchlist.

It was a good thing that we pointed it out when we did, because the move it made yesterday made the previous sessions’ activity seem like small potatoes by comparison. The Greek shipper made one of the largest single session leaps in its history, and we were right there waiting to take advantage.

From an early low of 13.60, the stock ran as high as 42.86 affording traders the chance to bank profits of up to 215% on the day. For a $10+ stock, that’s an absolutely incredible single-session move, and it came on well over two times the 3-month average volume. DRYS is now at its highest PPS since June, so congratulations to anyone who tagged along for the epic ride!

The stock is gapping up past the $50 mark in the premarket, so we could stand to see even further increases from this juncture.

Added Note:  We’re seeing ripple effects throughout the shipping sector, which is as hot as we can ever remember it being. As a result, we’ll place a couple other related plays on watch as well with SALT and TOPS.


Nokia Corp. NOK

We’ve had plenty of experience with NOK in the past, although we haven’t talked about it since May. We;re swinging back around this morning as we’ve noticed the establishment of a new 3-year lows on the stock.

We want to place the stock on bottom-watch at the present time as the chart is beginning to crack into heavily oversold territory, with the addition of a bullish MACD cross which just occurred. As you can see below, the histogram is also set to flip to the upside.

There’s potential for a good play on the stock itself, but of course, we’d also like to highlight a range of extended-term options ideas to use to our advantage if the eventual recovery plays out as we suspect it might. Our targets for the time being are going to be the NOK 01/20 $4 and $5 Calls.


Five Star Quality Care, Inc. FVE

We have an interesting scenario unfolding with FVE that we’d like to point out as well. On Friday, a Form-4 was filed on behalf of an FVE insider outlining the purchase of just under $54M worth of common stock executed at 3.00 (>>View Filing). The interesting thing is, the PPS on FVE was in the mid-$2 range at the time, where it still remains.

Such a vote of confidence by someone with inside knowledge of the company’s inner workings and future, is more than enough to sound the alarms for us. We’re going to immediately place FVE on watch and begin monitoring the stock for a reversal.


Added Reminder: Cannabis stocks are continuing to come back after a period of consolidation, after several new states voted put either recreational or medical marijuana on the books. Despite having many other things to focus on in the current markets, we don’t want to let marijuana plays slip off of our radar for even a moment, as the next big leg up could be just around the corner.
