Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Epic BPTH Run

Bio-Path Holdings, Inc. BPTH

We’ve been talking about BPTH all week, after the stock we tagged as a bottom watch play in our morning report on January 23rd had come up from our observed low of 2.65 to nearly the $15-mark. It was an incredible gain indeed, but nothing could have prepared us for what was to come.

Yesterday, following the company’s clinical update on its Phase 2 acute myeloid leukemia drug, prexigebersen, we saw an explosion on the chart that can only be described as the rarest of the rare. BPTH shot up from a daily low of 17.01 to an astounding high of 73.52! That worked out to an intraday swing of 332% As measured from the low following our January alert on the stock, BPTH posted an increase of  2,674% in a matter of just five weeks.

The stock pulled back to the high $30′s following that epic run, so it would appear that the above-mentioned figure will be the final maximum gain on our idea. While this has a chance to go down as our best stock call of the year, the chances that we score bigger gains on options ideas are extremely high. So we encourage any non-subscribers reading this to sign up as soon as possible!


Fresh Options Ideas

Speaking of options, which have also brought us several multi-bag gain opportunities this week, we’ll go ahead and close out this incredibly successful week with a pair of ideas that seem to be good bets here in the premarket. Horrid payroll numbers are contributing to what appears to be an impending bearish day for the markets.

SPY Weekly $274.50-273 Puts*
BIG 03/15 $35-37.50 Calls

*Never trade weekly options on a Friday unless you are an expert level trader with access to disposable funds.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: ADIL, AMTX Review

Adial Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ADIL

Just as we were lauding ADIL yesterday morning on its recent bucking of the terribly bearish trend that had been building for several weeks, we get that epic one day reversal and bullish surge in the markets. It was especially fortuitous timing in the case of ADIL, being that it was already up considerably. The added boost took the stock to new heights, and added considerably to the positive movement we’ve witnessed over the past couple of weeks.

At the time of our initial alert on ADIL on the morning of the 13th, we saw trades going off as low as 2.55. As of yesterday’s new high mark set at 7.45, which represents a two week upswing of 192%


Aemetis, Inc. AMTX

As for the the other mention from yesterday’s premarket report, AMTX, it too felt the effects of the huge rally in the markets, trading up from a low of .60, up as high as .97. That worked out to an intraday push of 62%

Regardless of the market conditions, we’ll have a slot on our watch screens reserved for AMTX going forward, after the company just received a considerable round of non-toxic financing to effect the execution of the next phase of its business plan.



DVB Technologies, Inc. DVBT

Among the countless stocks that have been at or near their annual lows recently, we want to highlight DVBT, to watch going forward. There is a considerable gap on the chart which the stock has been beginning to fill. The opportunity for a considerable swing trade may be present, provided that yesterday’s activity wasn’t merely an isolated event in the midst of a continued downward trajectory for the markets in general.

In addition to the stock itself, we’ll also go ahead and signal some options to watch, specifically the DVBT 05/17 $7.50 & $10 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DG Recap & More

Dollar General Corp. DG

We selected a wide range of puts in the DG chain on Tuesday morning, the DG Weekly $109-103 Puts following the company’s earnings release, wherein it lowered its outlook for the year. Despite a sales beat, shares slid considerably. With the help of an overall market downtrend in which the Dow took an 800 point hit, every set of contracts we selected made multi-bag gains.

$109 Puts – Range: 2.20-6.80 - Max Gain: 209%
$108 Puts – Range: 1.76-5.80 – Max Gain: 230%

MIK Weekly $15 & 17.50 Calls


Aphria, Inc. APHA

We’ve had an eye on Aphria, and indeed the whole Canadian cannabis market, for years.  Having previously been traded under the symbol APHQF on the OTC Markets, the Canadian cannabis company now trades on the NYSE and bills itself as a drug manufacturer in the healthcare industry.

As a result of allegations against the company, the stock has taken a severe beating in recent sessions. We’re going to begin to observe more closely as a potential bottom bounce play in the days and weeks ahead, as it has reached the point of being heavily oversold with a huge short interest. We’ll want to be hanging around when the shorts start to get squeezed.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PEP Recap & More

PepsiCo, Inc. PEP – Options Recap

Yesterday morning Pepsi’s earnings provided us with one of the pair of options ideas included in our report. We were focused on the PepsiCo, Inc. PEP Weekly $109-112 Calls and are pleased to report that we found success with those immediately.

The single-session gain opportunities available to anyone who partook were substantial to say the least, continuing an impressive pattern of huge options winners we’ve uncovered over the last several sessions.

$109 Calls – Range: 1.23-4.00 – Max Gain: 225%
$110 Calls – Range: .70-3.05 – Max Gain: 336%
$111 Calls – Range: .38-2.05 – Max Gain: 439%
$112 Calls – Range: .19-1.30 – Max Gain: 589%


Tesla, Inc. TSLA

On Friday we began tracking some TSLA Calls, and we did remind our readers of these contracts yesterday, cautioning that it appeared as if the stock was ready to facilitate some good moves in our targets.

The TSLA 08/02 $300-315 Calls were those targets, and our hunch proved correct. While we swept the range, finding gains in all seven sets of contracts, in the interest of time, we’ll simply provide the moves from the bottom and the top of the range. Just keep in mind that the sets in between also enjoyed commensurate moves to the upside.

The $300 Calls ran from a low of 22.54 to a high of 35.81 for a gain of 59% while the $315′s ran from 16.70 to 26.01; an increase of 56%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Recapping Friday’s Winners & More

South American Gold Corp. SAGD
(soon to be Sativa Growth International)

We initially tagged SAGD on June 21st, signaling our interest in tracking the stock as it was trading as low as .0135. We saw a nice 170% move to .0364 in a matter of week, something we mentioned on Friday when we recapped the stock’s impressive move.

Friday’s session itself brought another opportunity in SAGD in the form of a dip-and-rip scenario. The stock traded for as little as .0255 before rattling off a new high of .0378. It marked an intraday swing of 48% and as measured from our initially observed lows, the new high marked an overall increase of 180% in just over a week.

We’ll be continuing to track the company’s efforts to effect a name and direction change, as it attempts to enter the cannabis space.

UpperSolution.com URSL

We also would like to quickly make mention of URSL, a penny play we took notice of this morning after a recent run of extreme volatility. The stock has come back down to a relative bottom after a recent incredible run from less than fifty cents to more than 5.50/share. On friday the stock fell back off of a cliff down to the 1.50 area.

With these types of swings occurring in the past handful of sessions, we’re interested in tracking the stock’s activity as we kick off this holiday-shortened week.
