Blue Horseshoe Stocks: LNKD, URBF Recaps & More

LinkedIn Corp. LNKD

If you recall, LNKD was gapping up heavily on an earning beat in the premarket on Friday, leading us to signal a range of options that we felt would provide ample daytrading opportunities early on; specifically, the Weekly $235-245 Calls.

The ensuing action made extremely notable gains possible right out of the gate, as each and every set of contracts within our target range recorded an appreciable intraday pop:

$235 Calls –  Range: 3.50-11.00 – Max Gain: 214%
$237.50 Calls -  Range: 2.10-8.56 – Max Gain: 307%
$240 Calls -  Range: 1.34-6.35 – Max Gain: 374%
$242.50 Calls -  Range: .90-4.20 – Max Gain: 367%
$245 Calls - Range: .42-2.76 – Max Gain: 557%

Our acumen with regard to selecting extreme potential options plays has been continuously improving, and has been a great way for us to add diversity to the methods by which we profit from current trends we see happening in the marketplace.



Urban Barns Foods, Inc. URBF

URBF was a great call for us on the stock side of things on Friday. We tagged this play for observation in our premarket report and were happy with the results.

After logging a low of .0027 right at the outset of the session, the stock spent the entire day pushing its upper limits en route to closing at the high-of-day (.0062). That represented an excellent intraday run of 130%, and it occurred on nearly six times the 3-month average trading volume.

We’ll certainly be keen to continue tracking a stock that closed with that type of momentum.


Viper Networks, Inc. VPER

VPER was another inclusion in Friday’s watchlist, and this super-subpenny showed some real signs of life after hitting rock-bottom at .0001 just a session earlier. The stock traded from a daily low of .0002 to .0004; a clean double-bagger. The move came in conjunction with the trading of just under seven times the 30-day average volume.


Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. APDN

Speaking of bottom-plays, we did a great job of catching APDN on Friday just as the stock was coming off of its lowest PPS since August. We observed a daily range from 3.28-3.82, which marked a 16% swing. After pulling back slightly into the close, APDN is gapping back up into the 3.70′s this morning. We’re going to be monitoring the stock for continued signs of a recovery as we begin a new week.

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options Update

For the third consecutive session yesterday, we were treated to exceptional intraday performances by the AAPL Weekly $114-116 Calls that we initially signaled on Tuesday.

AAPL continued to bull its way to its highest PPS levels in over two months, and managed to close above $120 on the day. As a result, the contracts we were monitoring provided the following opportunities:

$114 Calls – Daily Range:  4.34-6.70 – Max Gain: 54%
$115 Calls - Daily Range: 3.47-5.70 – Max Gain: 64%
$116 Calls - Daily Range: 2.53-4.70 – Max Gain: 86%

While those gains were respectable, sharp traders will have seen greater opportunities in rolling up their strike prices to stay closer to the money as AAPL continued to run. The stock gapped up to crack the $121-mark in the premarket this morning, and so we’ll definitely be looking for quick-strike chances* in the range of the Weekly $119-121 Calls.

*Just remember, contracts with weekly expiration represent exploding offers. Extreme caution is required for trading these options on Friday!


LinkedIn Corp. LNKD

Speaking of fresh options ideas, LNKD is soaring in the premarket this morning, so we’re going to be tracking a range of contracts in this chain as well. We had tremendous success with LNKD calls this summer, and given the current conditions, we believe history could repeat itself today.

We’ll be prospecting a wide range in the LNKD Weekly $235-245 Calls as the session commences, as it seems that things could get very interesting(…and don’t forget the warning above about trading weeklies on a Friday!).

THWI, VHGI, ECDC, EEDG & Today’s Extended Watchlist

Thwapr, Inc. THWI

On June 20th, we identified support for THWI at .026. We have seen that support hold, and yesterday, the stock hit a high of .04, for a possible gain of 54%, and closing out the day at .035 (+35%).

Moving forward, we would like to see THWI take out resistance at the 20DMA of .037. If it can rise above that level, we feel there is a chance for it to test the 200DMA (.058).

Yesterday’s volume was 2X the 3mo. average, and we just might see a continuation of that, with added help from today’s news:

LAS VEGAS, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Thwapr, Inc. (OTCBB: THWI), a mobile video sharing company, will be showcasing its proprietary mobile video sharing platform in a high profile event in Asia – The SME1 Asia Awards 2012.

This elite event recognizes and rewards successful Small and Medium Enterprises in the region that contribute to the development of people, society and the environment.>>>MORE

VHGI Holdings, Inc.  VHGI

VHGI set a solid candle on the chart yesterday, with the open of .05 being the low of day, and the close of .08 being the high, putting up a great perfermance, gaining 45% on the day.

The volume was relatively low, which could be an indicator that the selling pressure has dried up, leaving the bottom on this stock behind us. We’ll just want to make sure we keep an eye on this one for support to hold at .05.

East Coast Diversified Corp. ECDC

ECDC earned us a spot on Penny Stock Rumble‘s winners list, trading over $125000 in dollar volume, and running from .0025 to .0034 for a gain of 36% on Monday. That marked the third winner we called yesterday, and added to the other gains, we were over 100% for our calls on the day.

____

Energy Edge Technologies Corporation EEDG

One of our selections from last week also did very well on Monday. EEDG appeared on our Extended Watchlist on Friday. After a .07 close, the stock turned around to hit a high of .153 yesterday, gaining 119%, while giving everyone a sharp reminder NOT to overlook our Extended Watchlists, which we provide for you every single day. It often contains hidden gems such as this.

ARNA, VHGI, EVDR, TWHI & Today’s Extended Watchlist

Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ARNA

With only a couple of sessions remaining before ARNA’s FDA date, we are watching this stock as closely as ever. We expect to see a significant amount of volatility from the stock this week, as we keep our eyes peeled for new press.

No matter how this all shakes out, we will want to keep ARNA on a short leash heading into the FDA date, as there are no guarantees to its performance, FDA approval or not. As we stated on Friday, smart traders may have already taken some profits off of the table.

VHGI Holdings, Inc.  VHGI

We first mentioned VHGI on December 9th, and on that day, we saw a great run totaling nearly 100% from .21-.40. By January the 23rd, that high increased nearly two-fold again, running up to .746.

On Friday the stock saw abnormally high volume coupled with the 52-week low, prompting us to put VHGI back on our watchlist in anticipation of an eventual bounce. All in all, we feel the recent selloff as a new opportunity with this stock.

Evader, Inc. EVDR

We first alerted EVDR on May 2nd. On May 3rd, it hit a high of .003, yielding us a rapid 150% overnight gain!

We have witnessed EVDR’s ability to make significant leaps in just a short time period, and will thus be monitoring closely for the next wave of activity.

Thwapr, Inc. THWI

Although THWI didnt put up the performance we hoped for last week, it did hold support at .026

We noticed some newsletter coverage over the weekend from various emailers, and look forward to seeing the actvity resulting from heightened awareness.

THWI, ENTB & Today’s Extended Watchlist

Thwapr, Inc. THWI

THWI dipped as low as .0315 on Thursday, and bounced back to close at .0364. That adds up to a 16% intraday gain.

The stock held above its 20DMA. This week’s consolidation pattern does not threaten our opinions of THWI, as the price movement has been on relatively light volume. Once we see a pickup in volume, we should see some positive moves. We think this could happen as soon as next week.

Barchart is currently giving THWI a “Buy” Rating

____

Entest BioMedical Inc. ENTB

ENTB has been on one heck of a run of late. We are expecting such a play to show some consolidation after making such big moves (almost 1400% in the past month), and will be observing for this to occur.

Generally, a stock that has displayed these kinds of gains over a relatively short period are in for a bit of a slide; something that is generally followed up by a bounce. That is what we will be awaiting.
