Blue Horseshoe Stocks: NBEV Bottom Bounce & More

New Age Beverages Corp. NBEV

We tagged NBEV as a possible bottom-bouncer in our premarket report yesterday morning, and stock has definitely risen to the occasion with the beginnings of what could be a significant rebound.

The stock had been trending down for the better part of the last six months, having started the summer trading at more than $6/share. It seemed a good time to call a bottom, and so far our idea is looking good.

While it’s off to a slow start, rising just 17% from 2.20 to 2.58 yesterday on its highest volume in over four months, we feel good about the chances of a more sustained move, especially with the stock hitting a new high of 3.42 in the premarket today. From yesterday’s low that’s already a swing of 55% We’ll be sure to keep an eye peeled for further movement from this bottom bouncer.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. DAL 

We’re no strangers to trading DAL options. It has traditionally been one of those companies we can count on to provide good post-earnings opportunities after a beat, and today the company exceeded expectations across the board in their Q4 report.

We’re are going to signal a range of contracts which will be expiring tomorrow to try to garner some rapid-strike chances. Our targets are going to be the DAL Weekly $57-58 Calls.

INSYS Therapeutics, Inc. INSY

We’ve had cause to mention our options idea for INSY every single trading day since we formulated them last Wednesday morning. The stock itself during that span has traded up from a low of 7.64, to yesterday’s impressive new high of 14.00. That’s a gain of 83% in and of itself, and it has really showed some fantastic moves in our options targets, the INSY 01/19 $8-10 Calls.

Despite already providing the chance at gains ranging from 150-350% leading into yesterday’s session, as we mentioned in our premarket report, we were still bullish on the ideas, and were rewarded once again. As INSY roared to its new high on the chart, the following new highs came to our tracked contracts as well. The ranges represent the overall move from our initial alert on Wednesday until the present.

$8 Calls – Range: .90-5.80– Max Gain: 544%
$9 Calls – Range: .60-5.10 – Max Gain: 750%
$10 Calls – Range: .70-4.10– Max Gain: 486%

More Pot Stock Updates

Yesterday morning, we commented on the rapidly intensifying cannabis sector rush, and provided updates on two stocks (ACBFF and TRTC) we highlighted in our “Cannabis Commentary” report on November 7th.

Today, we want to pull two more of the stocks from that report and give updates on the moves they’ve made since then, to illustrate the widespread run on the cannabis sector in general; something we’ve been foretelling for months now.

Aphria, Inc. APHQF – Range: (11/07-Present): 6.1434-17.50 – Max Gain: 185%

Canopy Growth Corp. TWMJF – Range (11/07-Present): 13.0464-28.884 – Max Gain: 121%

Added Note: Aurora also went on to set new highs yesterday, piling on even more to the nice gains we were mentioning in our premarket report:
 ACBFF -  Range: 2.7776-11.80 – Max Gain: 325%

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Options Roundup

GW Pharmaceuticals plc GWPH
We said we’d be looking for action in the  in the GWPH Weekly $125 & $130 Calls yesterday after we learned the company had reacquired the rights to develop Sativex, a 1:1 THC/CBD extract blend oral spray product.

The result was a run from the stock that brought it to its highest PPS since March, and that move facilitated some very nice activity in our designated contracts. The $125 Calls saw a move from  3.00-5.90 for gains of up to 97%, while the $130′s tore up the chart, running a whopping 900% from .15-1.50!

There’s also a reasonable chance the solid trend could continue today, so we’ll be sure to stay on the lookout for that.

Fresh Options Ideas

Under Armour Inc. UAA – First up for new options ideas this morning we’ve got UAA, which is building a heck of chart setup in the wake of the revelation earlier this week that the company’s third-largest stakeholder had increased their position.

We’re going to set up shop with a short and extended term idea, homing in on the UAA Weekly $13.50-14.50 Calls, in addition to the 01/12 $14.50-15.50 Calls, in the event that its recent run of bullish activity is set to continue over a longer time frame.

Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE – In the case of ADBE, the company posted beats on both revs and earnings for Q4, and we’re always looking for a good post-earnings options trade. We’ll look to the ADBE Weekly $175-180 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DE Review & More

Deere & Co. DE – Options Review

We were following a group of ideas in the DE options chain last week, and saw some really nice activity both before and after the Thanksgiving holiday. Despite only a half-day of trading on Friday,  our targets, the Deere & Co. DE Weekly $143-146 Calls,  enjoyed new highs on the day.

We mentioned to our readers that despite seeing multi-bag gains prior to the holiday, it appeared as if they were in line for further moves to the upside, and we were absolutely correct. The following figures represent our observed lows from Wednesday morning, and the subsequent ranges to Friday’s impressive new highs:

DE Weekly $143-146 Calls
$143 Calls –
Range:  .82-4.80 – Max Gain: 485%
$144 Calls – Range:  .50-3.82 – Max Gain: 664%
$145 Calls – Range:  .30-2.80 – Max Gain: 833%
$146 Calls – Range: .19-1.86 – Max Gain: 879%

To throw into contrast the kind of success we’ve had over the past few weeks with our options trading ideas, keep in mind that these gains are mild compared to some of the ones we’ve seen!

Marathon Patent Group, Inc. MARA

We slated MARA for observation a few weeks ago back on November 2nd, and at the time, we’d witness a low of 1.19 in the stock. Despite shortened holiday weeks being traditionally subdued, that did not apply to MARA last week as it streaked to some very pleasing new highs. On Friday’s short day, the stock ran all the way up to 6.04, marking an increase of 408% for the month of November.

This morning, it gapped up like crazy, seeing a high of 16.99 in premarket trading, which extended that range to a walloping 1328% The stock did come back down to Earth, but is still trading higher than Friday’s highs, so we’re very curious to see how the start to this fresh and full trading week is going to play out for MARA.

VelocityShares 3x Long Nat Gas ETN (UGAZ)

We also want to begin tracking the activity in UGAZ, a Natural Gas ETN. Not only is this Note approaching heavily oversold territory after having just set a new annual low on Friday, but we’re heading into the thick of the cold weather season, when such heating fuels go into much higher demand.

We’re already seeing a gap up this morning, and will put  UGAZ on an extended term bottom watch. A hypothetical return to its prices from early this summer would approach a double-bagger on the chart from here.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PBR, INO, RAD Reviews & More

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

PBR has continued to perform this week after we caught it coming off its 52-week lows two Thursday’s ago. At that time one of our main areas of interest was the 05/01 $6.50 Calls, which we subsequently observed trading at a low of .22. This week they’ve attained a high of .71, marking off a tidy 222% move.

The last time we touched upon PBR options on Monday morning, it was in the process of pushing even higher, so we suggested the possibility of rolling up our strike price to  both the Weekly and May 1st $7 Calls, and that idea turned out to be a good one as well.

We’ve witnessed a trading range on the Weekly $7′s from .06 -.25, a whopping 316%, while the May 1st $7′s enjoyed an 87% run from .30 to .56.

Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. INO 

INO stands among those stocks that we have covered the most over the years. An INO tag search of our archives yields no less than 30 results. We re-flagged it in yesterday’s premarket report and the timing was quite fortuitous.

Yesterday morning the company had announced it had been selected as the leader of a $45M DARPA program to develop practical treatments for the Ebola virus. It fueled a continued rise off of recent lows, and this morning’s news could contribute to that as well.  >> READ PR

INO heralded positive results from one of its studies, a DNA-based immunotherapy for the treatment of head and neck cancer. According to the CFO, the “initial data set from Inovio’s first cancer study provides encouraging evidence that we are on an important path to better optimized immunotherapy products.” >> READ PR

We’ll continue to keep watch over INO in the wake of these major developments.

Molycorp, Inc. MCP

MCP started showing up on our scanner back on March 23rd and 24th, when it was trading around .38. It retraced back to its 52-week low of .32 on the 27th.

After reappearing on our extended watchlist yesterday, it has traded as high as .62 in the premarket today; from a low of .484 that’s a 28% move up.

At .62, MCP had shown us a 94% overall move from its ultimate low set just the week before last. With gold and other precious metal prices on the rise again, we’ll continue to track MCP for more potential gain opportunities.

Rite-Aid Corp. RAD

We also wanted to make a quick mention of RAD. We tagged the stock for tracking back on December 4th and on that day we observed the lowest price the stock has traded at since then (5.48).

Since that time the stock has crept (and sometimes leaped) its way up the chart; it broke its 50DMA in early March, and managed break the $9-mark last Thursday, and then again yesterday. At Thursday’s high of 9.07, we had witnessed a total gain of 65%

Wall Street analysts are giving RAD high marks, and the stock is also receiving a 96% Overall “Buy” Rating at BARCHART.COM so we’ll certainly want to keep a close watch on RAD moving forward in the event that it sustains the bullish patterns it has been exhibiting over the past several months.
