Ebix, Inc. EBIX – Form-4 Alert

We caught a Form-4 insider buying alert on EBIX this morning. That’s when we noticed the prime bottom positioning of the chart, complete with a significant gap to the topside. This will be a perfect candidate to identify some longer-term options plays we have interest in tracking.

We’ll be looking at the EBIX 03/20 $30-40 Calls in the days and weeks ahead.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: FAST Review & More

Fastenal Co. FAST – Recap

We have had a continuous run of good fortune with our past several options calls over the last few weeks, and we continued to press our luck yesterday in signaling a range of options ideas for FAST.

We highlighted the FAST Weekly $50-55 Calls  as our fresh idea in yesterday morning’s premarket report, and not only did each of them provide chances for single-session profits, but they did so in absolutely grand fashion.

Serious multi-bag moves were on the menu regardless of which of the three strike points in our selected range was chosen by traders, with the $55’s being the most eye-popping with 38-bagger!

$50 Calls – Range: 1.65-6.50 – Max Gain: 294%
$52.50 Calls – Range: .45-4.00 – Max Gain: 789%
$55 Calls – Range: .05-1.98 – Max Gain: 3860%

Fresh Idea :
Delta Airlines, Inc. DAL Weekly $49.50-51.50 Calls


Idera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. IDRA

We also want to place IDRA on bottom watch this morning after noticing how oversold the stock has become.

A merger agreement, one that wasn’t particularly favored to begin with, was cancelled, causing a big selloff. The kicker, is a literal ‘kicker’, a cancellation fee of $6M payable to IDRA by the proposed merger partner. That’s why we feel now is a good time to begin watching IDRA for a possible bottom bounce.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: DGLY Update & Much More

Digital Ally, Inc. DGLY

For the third consecutive session yesterday, our coverage of DGLY yielded the opportunity for significant gains as the stock once again posted higher lows and higher highs on dramatically higher-than-average volume. (More than 12x higher than the one month average)

The stock began the week on a very strong note, trading in an impressive range from its early morning low of 8.75 all the way up to 14.75 shortly before 3PM. That represents a steady intraday move of 68% and at that high, our total possible gains on this stock over a three session period from the low we observed Thursday (5.75) stood at 156%

This has been an excellent short-term play for us, so we want to congratulate anyone who was able to take advantage of our timely alerts.


Drone Aviation Holding Corp. DRNE

We included a mention of DRNE once again yesterday, after its inclusion in Friday’s report led us to the chance to make up to 24% in gains from .89-1.10. The stock responded with another nice performance, and registered higher lows and higher highs on the day.

DRNE traded in a range from 1.09-1.30, a 19% intraday gain, and that high marked a 46% move up off of the low we observed when we tagged this play on Friday.



LabStyle Innovations Corp. DRIO

DRIO was a play we were monitoring yesterday, as anyone who stopped by our blog at BlueHorseshoeStocks.com and took a look at our daily stock tracker would have noticed. The stock is coming across as a bottom-bouncer, which hit its 52-week lows in the nickel-range yesterday, and has already begun a healthy rebound, pushing its way back over .08.

Significant volume is pouring through the stock for the first time in quite awhile, with yesterday’s session setting an all-time record, so DRIO will definitely be one we want to keep an eye on moving forward as it continues its recovery.

DRIO also provides an excellent example of why its always a good idea to visit Blue Horseshoe daily even if you’ve already read our morning report in your inbox. Occasionally the content will be updated between the publishing of our morning reports and the opening bell, and visiting the site is the only way to catch those periodic and unannounced changes.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

PBR hit new highs yesterday cracking the $18-mark, and lending further credence to our long term options-trading idea that we put forth last week; the January 17th $19 Calls. Those contracts have edged their way up from a low of 1.23 on Friday, and hit 1.64 during yesterday’s session, which marks a modest yet significant session-over-session increase of 33%

We expect the possible gains on those Calls to inflate even further as they draw nearer to their expiration if PBR can continue to follow its recent patterns.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: APP, ZGNX & Extended Watchlist

American Apparel, Inc. APP

April 15th was the day we brought APP back into the conversation, because if you recall, this is one of our old-time favorites that we turn to around the same time every year for the predictability of its seasonal trading patterns.

Right off the bat, APP did not disappoint- that day we saw a low of .47, and on Tuesday, the stock reached as high as .6895, marking a positive move on the chart of 47% in only a week.

After the resistance at the 50DMA (.68) the next hurdles come at .80, .91, and 1.05. We’ll be continuously monitoring this play over the next several months as it tends to ramp up in price over the course of the summer heading into the height of the retail season.


Zogenix, Inc. ZGNX

ZGNX is a stock that is catching our eye due to the current setup of the chart. If you track back to November, you can see that the stock ran from its current levels to more than 5.00 by February.

We are looking at it now, as it is coming off of a recent bottom, and is gapping up this morning in pre-market activity (Currently trading over $3.00). The RSI is in a general uptrend, and a quick look at the MACD reveals an extremely bullish divergence on the heels of a recent cross.

We just want to throw ZGNX up on our radars at this point, because a return to February highs would mean potential gains approaching 70% from current levels.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AVOP, PBR, FRMC, UTRM

AV1 Group, Inc. AVOP

First thing’s first; we want to congratulate anyone that caught AVOP off of yesterday’s Extended Watchlist. Marijuana-related news strikes again! The stock traded as low as .0006 early in the morning, and would go on to push as high as .0015 just prior to the close.
That was good for an intraday run of 150% from this play on the heels of a press release stating that the company had been the subject of a friendly takeover by the Marijuana Incubator Group, which specializes in cultivation technology. We’ll definitely be following along with this story moving forward.

Petroleo Brasiliero S.A. (Petrobras) PBR

Yesterday we saw PBR make its first big consolidation since we began tracking its recovery off of all-time lows, but not before gapping up to a new high. It provides a good lesson as to why it’s always a good idea to sell into a gap-up and lock in those profits on strength.

Despite the dip, yesterday’s low of 13.70 is still significantly higher than its 11.25 price when we first came across the play on 03/21. We’d like to see support hold at or above that 13.70-mark, or risk seeing a more substantial pullback. Below that, the next level of support is the 200DMA at 13.47.

Overall, PBR and its options chain has exceeded our expectations at every turn, and provided it holds the level of support we just mentioned, we still like the May $12, and April $14 Calls for longer-term chances, and the $13.50 and $14 Weekly Calls for possible short-term opportunities.


Formcap Corp. FRMC

One of the potential bottom-plays we put forth in yesterday’s morning report went on to have quite a session. FRMC traded in a range from .031-.0489, representing a positive intraday move of 58%

It also marked the third consecutive session of the stock making both higher lows and higher highs, further confirming the uptrend off of its recent bottom.


United Treatment Centers, Inc. UTRM

We also want to point out one of our recent interests with fresh news hitting the wires this morning. We’ve been expecting an update from UTRM and it’s finally arrived:

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 9, 2014) – United Treatment Centers Inc. (OTC Pink: UTRM) (PINKSHEETS: UTRM) DBA www.PotNetwork.tv: “We have closed our first round of financing and will launch full scale website/video operations on 4/20/2014.
