FREE, ZLCS, ARQL & Extended Watchlist

FreeSeas, Inc. FREE

It seems yesterday’s news that FREE orchestrated a deal to clean roughly $30M of debt on its balance sheet was well received, as the stock continued its recent unptrend. After we pointed out FREE gapping up into the tune of .63 in yesterday morning’s report, the stock touched a daily low .622 before rocketing to a high of .93, good for a 50% intraday gains.

The 200DMA sitting at .99 is going to be the next major resistance hurdle for FREE. Granted the fact that the stock is up approximately 660% from recent lows, it certainly may be a time to start thinking about taking profits off of the table in anticipation of a pullback.

Zalicus, Inc. ZLCS

ZLCS is a morning gapper that popped up on our scanners today. The stock recently made a nice 94% move (.48-.93) from the beginning of August to the beginning of September. The chart looks ripe, with a recent golden cross taking place, and the stock making higher highs and higher lows. The level of support in September has been .71, and main resistance is sitting at .93. This will be a stock that we want to keep an eye on going forward.

ZLCS is a biopharma company that develops treatments for pain, and currently has a drug undergoing Phase 1b clinical study.

ArQule, Inc. ARQL

Speaking of stair-steppers, ARQL has been on a tear since last Thursday when it touched a low of 2.12. Yesterday the stock reached a high of 2.53, a move of 19%

Both yesterday and the day prior, ARQL had breached the 50DMA at 2.47. We’re watching the stock currently gapping up to the tune of 2.88, up another .41 (+16%) from yesterday’s close.  In breaking the 2.80 mark in premarket trading this morning, the stock has surpassed a a recent level of resistance around 2.80. Any time we find a big-board stock with this kind of momentum, we like to pay close attention.

The next levels of resistance that will need to be cleared is sitting at 3.05 and 3.10, swing-highs from May and April, respectively.

DRYS, FREE & Extended Watchlist

DryShips, Inc. DRYS

DRYS appeared in Tuesday morning’s extended watchlist, after which time we observed a low of 3.40. Yesterday the stock hit a high of 3.99, marking an overnight move of 17% This morning, it looks like it is gapping up, so we will be monitoring this play today for added gains that could result from the current momentum.

Our first ever mention of DRYS was back on August 22nd, when the stock was trading around 2.20. From that point, yesterday’s high represents a move of 81% As you can see on the chart included, DRYS has been on a steady uptrend since it first hit our radar.

FreeSeas, Inc. FREE

We had FREE on bottom-watch back in July, and it wasn’t too long after that when we saw the stock touch a low of .1652 (08/01). After generally trading sideways for the month of August, FREE began a rise that has lasted all the way through this month, culminating in yesterday’s .59 high, a move of  257% off of its bottom.

This morning it looks like FREE is gapping up into the mid-.60’s range, so it seems further gains are on the menu. Today the company reported details of a deal that will clean a significant amount of debt from its balance sheet:

Extended Watchlist:


AAPL, CTXV & Extended Watchlist

Apple, Inc. AAPL – Options
Apple surpassed the $490-mark yesterday, as we suggested it might in Friday’s newsletter. Impressive iPhone sales seem to be the catalyst here as the stock gapped up yesterday and saw a daily high of 496.91, revealing the $480-$485 Calls that we were monitoring as multi-bag gainers.

To determine our next course of action, we are going to want to watch AAPL’s attitude closely; resistance at this point appears at $498 & $500. Failure to breach those levels could result in a consolidation for which we need to be prepared.

CTX Virtual Technologies, Inc. CTXV

We have CTXV on our long-term watchlist, and while the stock is fairly illiquid at this point in time, we like the idea and business plan behind this one enough to monitor its situation going forward.

CTX manufactures a variety of mobile communication technology including basic Cell Phones, PDA’s, Smartphone’s, Printed Circuit Boards and the worlds smallest fully-functioning PC, the MISEETX. CTX also manufactures and distributes it’s proprietary 3D electronic perception technology for interactive virtual computer keyboards.

In addition to logging almost $50M in net sales for the last reporting period, the company recently received the go-ahead from BlackBerry to begin using the BlackBerry compatible logo on their VK 200 Keyfob(TM) input devices.
