Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Cannabis Commentary & More

NeoPhotonics Corp. NPTN

We’re always bargain hunting for stocks that have been recently beaten back to what appear to be unsustainably low levels, and we’re observing one heck of a double bottom setup on NPTN at the present time.

Twice now the stock has touched and rebounded off of the mid-$4 range, with the annual low coming in at 4.56. We’re going to want to place NPTN on watch in sessions to come and look for the stock to establish higher levels of support.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. VRX

It’s been awhile since we had a look at VRX, and as it turns out, this is another stock that looks ready to start a trend off of a recent relative low.

VRX is gapping up considerably into the $14-range this morning on the heels of a solid earnings beat. We’re going to signal a range of options contracts to watch for some possible dip-and-rip activity. This is just the type of setup we routinely look for, and we’ll be tracking the VRX Weekly $13-14 Calls for the remainder of the week.

Cannabis Commentary

It has been a slow year in general for many domestic cannabis stocks, due, at least in part, to a DOJ led by outspoken marijuana opponent Jeff Sessions. It has created an environment of uncertainty pertaining to the federal government’s likelihood of creating problems for marijuana businesses, even in states where voters have officially spoken and legalized the plant. The marijuana movement is here to stay, but at present, is dealing with this roadblock of sorts.

That doesn’t mean our interest in the sector has diminished. In fact, we’re as exuberant about the future of the cannabis industry as we ever were. North of the Border, Canadians will enact a nationwide end to prohibition just 8 months from now.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, which was formed by the International Olympic Committee to police the use of performance enhancing drugs in athletics, also recently removed Cannabidiol (CBD) from its list of banned substances, opening up a huge market for the hemp-derived product.

Here are just a few of the cannabis plays that we track on a regular basis, and will continue to do so as we head into 2018, which we feel is going to be a big year for the industry and all of its subsectors. Maybe the biggest one yet!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Updates, Bottom-Plays & More

Aeterna Zentaris, Inc. AEZS

We flagged AEZS on Wednesday’s morning, and saw rip its way to nearly a 90% gain. Then yesterday morning, we took note of the heavy volume and kept the stock on our radar.

It didn’t quite match the degree of the previous session’s move, but still followed it up with a solid performance, running from 2.55 to 3.29 on the day. That’s an intraday spike of 29% and a two-day upswing of 122% over our observed low of 1.48,  while volume was massive once again. We’ll be looking for AEZS to possibly continue its multi-day run, and would want to see maintain support at or above Wednesday’s closing price of 2.34 on any pullbacks, in order to remain interested.

ImmunoCellular Therapeutics, Ltd. IMUC

We want to radar IMUC as a bottom-watch play this morning. We noticed the stock had fallen to a new annual low yesterday, following the pricing of a public offering earlier this week, that is expected to be executed today.

We’re always on the lookout for battered stocks that could become rebound play candidates, and we’re always looking for charts with gaps to the upside and IMUC currently checks both of those boxes.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MXSG Review & More

Mexus Gold US (MXSG)

Our first order of business this morning is to give a rundown of the recent performance of MXSG, which has made one heck of a run in the time we’ve been tracking it.

We initially placed this gold play on watch last February 5th when it was trading at .0016 , and the stock, quite incredibly has put together a roughly 10-month uptrend.

Some of the biggest strides have come recently, despite gold prices cratering to their lowest values in that same 10 month period of late. That didn’t stop MXSG from running to a new high of .235 yesterday, which marks a mind-numbing 14,587% increase over the low we observed on the very first time we mentioned the stock in February.

That definitely makes MXSG one of our biggest success stories of 2016, and that includes options trading! Congratulations to anyone who has taken part in such an incredible ride!

IFAN Financial, Inc. IFAN

IFAN is another play we’ve been tracking that has also made big moves for us. When we first brought it to the table on October 24th, it broke out for excellent gains on the order of nearly 400% as it ran from .0031-.0154.

Yesterday, the stock went for a double-bagger, trading in a daily range from .0016-.0033 (+106%). It will interesting to see if it can carry some of its generated momentum of the past couple of sessions into further price surges. Another run at the penny mark from this point would factor in potential gains of up to 200%

GoDaddy, Inc. GDDY

GoDaddy is moving in the wake of news that the company would be attempting to boost its web hosting business with the acquisition of Host Europe in a $1.82B deal (>>View PR).

While the stock is at a good place on the chart, and receiving some attention, we’re going to radar some options to monitor over the next several weeks, in the GDDY 01/20 $35-36 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: SKYS Update, New Ideas & More

Sky Solar Holdings Ltd. SKYS – Update

SKYS was part of a bottom watchlist we put together and published in our premarket report on Thursday, and that morning from a low of 1.30 to 2.58 we witnessed a 98% spike.

We suggested that our readers leave SKYS on their radar on Friday morning, and it was no April Fools trick! The stock bested its performance from the previous session by a decent margin as it traded in a range from 2.44-5.50, an intraday rip of 125% The stock traded massive volume, and was recorded as the top gainer for the day for the entire market!

As of Friday’s new high, our total observed upswing on SKYS in just two days has been a spectacular 323% so congrats to any of our followers who were able to snag a piece of the action!  SKYS serves as a shining example of why we look to stocks that have been beaten back terribly. Recovery-plays are, historically, among some of the most successful picks that we make when the timing is right. The timing was perfect here as is effectively demonstrated by the following chart snapshot without the need for annotation.


Towerstream Corp. TWER was also part of Thursday’s bottom watchlist, and it too has posted two consecutive sessions of northerly momentum. While not seeing gains at the magnitude of the previously mentioned play, from our observed low of .1099, the stock returned to .17, a respectable overnight gain of 55%

Aeropostale, Inc. ARO

The ARO chart is filled with bullish indicators as we’ve pointed out below, thus the stock will become a point of keen focus for us in coming sessions. Not only does it qualify as a prime potential bottom-play, but there is a cavernous gap on the chart, the filling of which would spell double-bag gains or better from the current level.

More possible bottom-plays to watch as we kick off the new trading week include ZFGN, TXMD, LNCO & LINE

Novint Technologies, Inc. NVNT

We’ve also got an update on the chatroom call from Thursday’s session that came via the famous DJ, and allowed us a chance at gains of more than 1000%

Readers of our report on Friday morning, even having missed that epic first opportunity, were still treated to a chance at healthy returns on the day as the stock ran from an early low of .025 to a new high of .071. That marked an intraday swing of 184% on a brain-melting 671X its three month average volume!

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Wrapping Up the Short Week

This holiday-shortened week has brought another string of stellar opportunities for us with both stocks and options, and was an excellent way to close out the first quarter of 2015!

Pazoo, Inc. PZOO

Firstly, our re-alert of PZOO yesterday came just in the nick of time for us to observe a nice upswing. The stock traded up from a low of .0052 to reach .0071, an intraday move of 37% and it did so on more than twice its 30-day average volume.

With the deliberate steps Pazoo has been taking to become actively involved in the cannabis sector, it’s certain to hold our interest for quite awhile. There was a new PR to that effect released after market open yesterday; PZOO’s wholly-owned sub, marijuana testing agency Harris Lee, will be taking full ownership of a “fully functional, revenue generating facility no later than April 30, 2015″.

Totally Hemp Crazy, Inc. THCZ

Speaking of pot-related plays- Last Friday, we suggested our readers put THCZ on their radars as we were watching the stock search for support. It found it that day at .128, and managed to set higher highs every day since.

Yesterday came an enormous push to an astonishing high of .32; that registered as an overall increase of 150% from THCZ in just five sessions! Even more amazing, is the fact that we observed THCZ trading subpenny as recently as the end of January.

Northstar Global Business Services, Inc. MDIN

MDIN appeared on yesterday’s extended watchlist, and it too enjoyed a nice intraday move of 66%. The stock held the majority of those gains into the close, so we’ll be interested to see how it closes out this short week today.

Pervasip Corp. PVSP

On Monday, we called out PVSP in a well-timed alert that yielded the chance at intraday gains of up to 55% It took until yesterday afternoon for the stock to consolidate and make its way down to find a support level from which to bounce.

That came at .0013, and PVSP did make a nice rebound to the tune of 38% (.0018) This is yet another one which is tied to the cannabis space, so we can definitely see a theme being established here as springtime comes into full-swing.

Petroleo Brasiliero, S.A. (Petrobras) PBR – Options

We signaled May PBR $6 and $6.50 calls last Thursday as we noticed it rebounding off of its newly-established all-time lows. Although there wasn’t much open interest in the May $6 Calls that we highlighted, they were pushed into the money and there was an opportunity to profit for those that decided to take the trade. The low on those contracts was .32 following our alert, and they closed yesterday at .55x.79. With plenty of time left until expiration, we may not yet be finished with them.

There was volume in the May $6.50′s, which traded as low as .22 following our initial mention and yesterday closed at .47; a gain of 114%.

Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. ESPR – Options

It was on Tuesday March 17th that we called ESPR options and came away with percentage gains that ran into the thousands over the course of that week. The idea that we ventured was the 04/17 $90 Calls, and we saw a subsequent run from 3.50 to 28.50.

Following that huge run, we saw those contracts dip back to find support at 4.50 toward the end of last week. Yesterday, a news release helped push ESPR stock to new highs, and as a result the April $90′s went on another big run, up to their closing price of 16.35. That’s a 263% swing in less than a week!

ESPR traded up just shy of $110 in the premarket this morning. We will also want to keep a close eye on the 04/17 $100-110 Calls should the stock continue its upward trend through to next week.
