Blue Horseshoe Stocks: Z Follow-Up & More

Zillow Group, Inc. Z

First thing’s first- we wanted to update our readers once again on the Zillow calls we made on Tuesday morning. We designated the Z Weekly $48-49 Calls as our targets and after a good first day, the stock continued its upward climb during yesterday’s session.

That move alloted for even further increases on our observed range of contracts, and pushed our two-day observed swings well into multi-bag territory:

$48 Calls – Range: 1.30-3.55 – Max Gain: 173%
$48.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-2.60 – Max Gain: 136%
$49 Calls – Range: .80-2.60 – Max Gain: 225%

Healthmed Services, Inc HEME

It isn’t often these days that we target a subpenny OTC stock. Our long-time followers know that those were our primary focus when we started out exactly 7 years ago this past Tuesday. We did very well in that capacity for many years, despite having recently shifted focus more to fast-paced options trading.

Of any of the sectors we ever covered in the OTC space, cannabis has certainly been the most exciting, and continues to be one of our primary interests on the stock side of things to this day.

That’s why we just want to put HEME on our readers radars. Despite being listed as defunct on OTC Markets, the company recently revealed its intentions to get things back on track and enter the marijuana space.

According to its updated website, HEME is presently acquiring, leasing and licensing growers for the cultivation, production and distribution of cannabis and cannabis-related products in southern California. The project site has state Highway access, water and local transportation are convenient and accessible, and the City government has designated the project site – legal planting zoning.

We are going to keep tabs on the company’s progress toward not only developing in this new direction, but also coming current on its reporting.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: WB Options & More

Zillow Group, Inc. Z

We targeted a set of ideas for the Zillow options chain yesterday, namely the Z Weekly $48-49 Calls, as the company was coming off of its Q3 earnings release.

The stock gapped down fairly significantly, however it launched into an immediate rebound that made some solid gains possible in our highlighted contracts. Here are the total possible intraday gains which could have been achieved on the back of those ideas.

$48 Calls – Range: 1.30-2.23 – Max Gain: 75%
$48.50 Calls – Range: 1.10-1.70 – Max Gain: 55%
$49 Calls – Range: .80-1.40 – Max Gain: 75%


Weibo Corp. WB

We’re simply going to stick to our running strategy of hitting up plays that have just seen their respective companies report on earnings. Chinese internet stocks have been flagging of late, and WB is at this point, extremely oversold.

We could envision a longer term scenario in which WB sees a replacement back to  $100-110 range, however we are just going to roll with some quick-strike ideas for now. We’ll be tracking the WB Weekly $86-88 Calls as we head into week’s end.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: TSN Recap & More

Tyson Foods Inc. TSN – Update

We started the week off yesterday by formulating some options ideas for TSN. The company had a mixed earnings call, with a beat on Q3 profits, and a miss on sales. We pointed to the technical setup of the chart as our primary reason for being interested, and as it turns out we called the bottom perfectly.

We came up with a short and longer term set of ideas, and while we may yet come back to the long terms, we are looking at the weekly calls we designated today after some solid performances. Those were the TSN Weekly $58-59.50 Calls, and all but the $58′s produced double-bag gains on the session.

$58.50 Calls – Range: .90-2.25 – Max Gain: 150%
$59 Calls – Range: .80-1.68 – Max Gain: 110%
$59.50 Calls – Range: .75-1.50 – Max Gain: 100%



Fresh Options Ideas

Our success with options over the past several weeks has been so pronounced, we see absolutely no reason to stop now, especially being in the thick of another earnings season. We’ve got another pair of earning related options ideas to bring to the table today.

Etsy, Inc. ETSY Weekly $40-50 Calls
Zillow Group, Inc. Z Weekly $48-49 Calls

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: XGTI Review & More

xG Technology, Inc. XGTI

We’ve seen XGTI make its way up nicely from a low of .08 subsequent to our tag of the stock late last month, but despite it already being up considerably, we reinforced our bullish opinion of it in yesterday morning’s premarket report.

The momentum we’d observed was sufficient to surmise that further opportunities could be in the cards, and our assumption was accurate indeed. We saw a strong move out of XGTI to begin the session as it traded in its full daily range from an early low of .1021 on up to a new high of .165 for an initial rip of 62%

Midday saw a pullback in the stock, which ultimately found support at .1217 before returning to .155, an added 27% swing, so there was a good chance for late-comers as well. It brought the cumulative total on northward movement for the day to a respectable 89%


Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. PTX

PTX is another one we’ve tracked in the past which we re-alerted this week on the heels of a newly-registered 52-week low on Friday. The stock made a nice move on Monday, and continued its ascent yesterday.

We witnessed a trading range from .98-1.25 which works out to a solid 28% upswing on the day, and it came on more than eight times the 3-month average volume.


Cerebain Biotech, Inc. CBBT

We tagged CBBT based on observing some abnormal volume on Monday, and despite sliding for the first half of the day, the stock did register a higher low and higher high from the session prior en route to a nice intraday swing. It traded from .53-.86, making a 62% pop and closing with strength at .85.

The company also announced yesterday that it would apply for FDA approval on its medical device which is meant to treat alzheimer’s and dementia sufferers, so that will be one storyline to continue following. (>>Read PR)

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MIXX Review, Options Ideas & More

Mix 1 Life, Inc. MIXX

To kick the week off on Monday morning, we highlighted a couple of fresh news bottom plays, and MIXX was among them. If you refer to that premarket report, we stated that MIXX was  “piquing our interest with a premarket PR and its positioning on the chart as a good bottom-watch candidate. The stock has fallen dramatically to new 52-week lows, and is looking extremely oversold… we’re going to slate this one for observation as the potential recovery could produce some serious chances for profit.”

We honestly couldn’t have been more right about MIXX seeming out of place at such low price, and that impression of the chart led us to the chance for some serious profits. Yesterday’s trading range brought the stock from a low of .98 all the way up to 3.15, which marks an intraday jump of 221%

This play served as yet another added reminder of why we are constantly scanning for stocks which have been crushed down to new annual lows without significant material changes. It is often a precursor to hefty rebounds like the one MIXX has produced this week.



Mobile Broadcasting Holding, Inc. MBHC

Speaking of intraweek swings, MBHC has continued to make a comparatively modest yet still significant move of its own off of its recent swing low of .0042. Yesterday the stock pushed its way back to a high of .0069, an overall positive change of 64%

It came in conjunction with a press announcement highlighting the appointment of a new CEO who will be navigating the company through the upcoming launch of the company’s new app to both Apple and Android markets. The timeline given in a prior press release from MBHC has the official release coming up later this month.

PISCATAWAY TOWNS, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / August 4, 2015 / Mobile Broadcasting Corporation, (OTC PINK: MBHC) Mobile Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) announced today that Darryl M. Sanders will be taking the reigns as President and CEO of MBHC. He will lead the company’s public launch of the WHIRLD Mobile Broadcasting Network >> FULL PR


Options Ideas

We’ve had strikingly good fortune with options recently, so here are a couple of fresh ideas that we’re going to be monitoring today. We’re going to give a wide target range for each of them. Be aware that when we signal wider ranges of call contracts it’s always less risky to start at the lower strike price, (i.e. deeper in-the-money) and roll up our strike price if the stock looks like it wants to continue to break out. We’ve identified many winning contracts in the past using this broad-sweep monitoring method.

Zillow Group, Inc. (Z) - Here we are going to be slating the Z Weekly $77-82 Calls for observation.

First Solar, Inc. FSLR – For FSLR our target range looks to be the Weekly $47-50.50 Calls.
