Blue Horseshoe Stocks: EKSO Recap & More

Yesterday’s Notable Gainers:

Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. EKSO - On a choppy day for the markets as a whole, we managed to root out a decent intraday mover in EKSO. This stock traded in a daily range from a low of 1.40 and ran as high as 1.92. That works out to 37% pop, and it occurred on roughly 12.5X the 30-day average volume.

With a strong close at 1.81, we’ll be interested in continuing to track EKSO as we head into week’s end, keeping an eye out for the registering of higher highs and higher lows.
_____

LiNiu Technology Group, Inc. LINU -  Also contained in yesterday’s premarket report was a reference to LINU, and it too made a moderate move on the day.

From its low of .42 LINU managed to get up as high as .5569, which marked a 33% upswing and that came on just a hair under five times the monthly average volume, so we’ll continue to keep tabs on this play as well.


Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. IDXG

As you can see on the chart below, IDXG has taken a bit of a beating of late, and we noticed it gapping up significantly in the premarket this morning, so we want to signal it for observation.

The early activity could be due in part to a bullish IDXG blurb published on Seeking Alpha this morning, but as we mentioned above, this in an interesting play purely from a technical perspective as well. We’re always looking for bottom bouncers to track and IDXG currently fits that bill. .

HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. HTGM

Speaking of bottom bouncers showing life in the premarket, we also want to point out similar activity in HTGM. Like the above-mentioned play, the stock has recently experienced an extended selloff period, and could be ready to mount a comeback, so we’ll be on the lookout for that. .

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Bottom-Plays, Options & More

Celadon Group, Inc. CGI

We’ve been seeing a fair bit of bottom-bouncers running across our desks this week, and CGI is the latest to grab our attention. What we’ve got here is a very enticing chart with just about everything we look for in a potential bottom play.

The stock is beginning to come off of being massively oversold, has set higher lows and higher highs for each of the last three sessions, and has a sizable gap to fill to the upside. We also have a MACD that appears as if a bullish cross could be forthcoming, so we’ll definitely want to keep an eye on CGI this week.


____

Two other stocks on our bottom watchlist, California Resources Corp. and CRC Uni-Pixel, Inc. UNXL will remain there. We signaled these two just yesterday, and despite recording only marginal gains on the day, we still want to leave them a spot on our radar as well.



Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. VRX – Options Idea

Speaking of bottom-bouncers, VRX recently rebounded off of new 52-week lows, and is hitting our scanners this morning.  With a pleasing Q1 earnings call which included solid boosts in profits for the quarter as well as reinforced guidance for the remainder of the year, VRX is gapping up considerably in the premarket.

We want to formulate an options idea to coincide with the increased activity and expected price action in a stock in this position. We’ve seen this sort of pattern many times before, and if things play out similarly here, the VRX Weekly $10.50-12 Calls could be in line to see considerable gains.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMLH Update, Options Idea

American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH

After watching it run more than 2000% several weeks ago, we began tracking AMLH’s subsequent consolidation and rebound, and the results have been quite pleasing to this point. On Thursday morning, we recapped the stock’s progress to that point as it bounced and ran from .0029-.007 (141%). We also said we’d be on the lookout for the stock to break that resistance at .007, and on Friday, that’s just what it did.

AMLH traded in a daily range from .0058 to .0093, which goes down as an intraday jump of 60%, and a big-time increase of 220% over the previous week’s swing low.

Our regular readers will recall that AMLH started out as a call from our daily live trader’s chatroom on March 27th*, and from the low we witnessed at that time (.0003) this stock has posted an astonishing 3000% upswing!

DISH Network Corp. DISH – Options Idea

We noticed that not only is DISH looking relatively toppy on the chart at the moment, as you can see on the snapshot below, but this morning the company also had a rather ugly earnings release. It included declines in revenue and profits,not to mention more subscriber loss.

We don’t often jump to the bearish side of the fence with our ideas, but in this case it seems appropriate. We’re going to have the DISH 05/12 $62-60 Puts on our radar to take advantage of what could be a significant backslide over the next several sessions.


Ocwen Financial Corp. OCN
& First NBC Bank Holding Co. FNBC

We want to put this pair of finance plays on watch after noticing that both stocks have been beaten back quite a bit over a relatively short period of time.

In the case of OCN, the stock is massively oversold after falling off a cliff a couple of weeks ago, but began to bounce last week, and is gapping up significantly in the premarket.

FNBC is actually gapping down heavily (roughly 90%) in the premarket, so we’ll have to monitor this one for its bottom, but after it’s reached we could in in for a heck of a bounce here as well.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Weekly Wrap-Up & More

StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. SFOR

Our first order of business today is to update readers on the strong recent performance of SFOR; the stock has made a really nice move from its PPS following our most recent mention on 09/27 at .0083.

Yesterday it reached .0175, marking a 111% swing in just over two weeks’ time. We’ve been tracking SFOR closely since this spring, when we observed the stock trading as low as .0006. From that price point to yesterday’s new high represents an exponential increase of over 2800%


AngioSoma, Inc. SOAN

Yesterday was SOAN’s first ever appearance in our newsletters, and for a maiden mention, it ended up doing pretty well for us, with a solid intraday push.

The stock traded in a daily range from a low of .38 up to .50; a 32% run which occurred on volume which exceeded the monthly average by more than three times. It also closed at its high of day, a bullish occurrence which qualifies the stock for continued monitoring as a potential momentum play  as we prepare to close out another trading week.


Ruby Tuesday, Inc. RT – Update

Last Friday we signaled RT for both a potential bottom play and extended-term options call, and thus far it has panned out to a great idea in both respects. We called the bottom perfectly, seeing it trade as low as 2.08 that day, and inching its way up all week. Yesterday the stock reached a new high of 2.8599, marking a 37% move up.

That push allowed our options idea, the RT 11/18 $2.50 Calls, to make a fantastic move from a low of .05 up to .30. That works out to an even 500% rip, so congratulations to anyone who caught our timely alert and used it to their great advantage!
______

Fresh Options Idea: We want to draw attention to JP Morgan on the heels of their premarket earnings beat this morning, and assign an options trading idea to correspond accordingly. We’ll focus on the JPM Weekly $68-69.50 Calls for potential daytrades, but remember, trading weekly options on a Friday is a high-risk proposition that should only ever be attempted by expert traders.

Additionally, please note that if the stock breaks the 69.50 barrier, we may need to roll up our strike price to the $70 Calls.

Options Highlights

Jack in the Box, Inc. JACK - We had a couple of our active options targets turn up sizable opportunities for profits yesterday beginning with JACK 05/20 $70 and $75 Calls. We caught JACK on the heels of its Q2 earnings release, and various circumstances allowed for us to take advantage of the idea on its first day of mentioning.

The $70 Calls traded in an impressive range from a low of 2.25 on up 6.85 for an intraday gain of 204% The $75 Calls fared even better as they ran from .39 to 1.61, a single-session rip of 313% With performances like those, we’ll continue to track these contracts through to their expiration next week.

______

Macy’s Inc. M  – Our signaled range for Macy’s from Wednesday’s report added to its gains yesterday. We had been tracking the M Weekly $36-34 Puts. At the top of the range, the $36 Puts surged from a low of 1.83 up to 5.15, for a two-session swing of 181% Gains increased incrementally into the lower strike prices, culminating in the $34′s which traded up from Wednesday’s low of .50 to a new high of 3.62; a 624% swing.


Cerebain Biotech Corp. CBBT

Just after we were reviewing CBBT’s recent performance in yesterday’s morning report, (We’d added it to our radars last Tuesday) the stock went on to set another new high for us.

The stock traded in a daily range from 1.25-1.75, a respectable 40% intraday rip. From our observed low of .53, the new high represents an overall move of 230%
