Watchlist for 10-30-2015 – $EXAS, $APDN, $SUNE, $NYMX, $VTL, $AVXL, $RLYP

Today’s Watchlist

Good day yesterday, though I executed on my plans, I was very late on a lot of entries. Left a lot of money on the table. Big list today, will try and focus on only the most liquid of them.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Exact Sciences Corporation (EXAS) -NasdaqCM

Hoping for a squeeze back up to $8’s, terrible miss by me on this yesterday after the morning spike. Should have gotten some in the mid $9’s.

Target: $8+

EXAS

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. (APDN) -NasdaqCM

Not really my type of play but will be watching for a bounce.

Target: Mid $3’s with a stop on $3.

APDN

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

Nevermind, rumors of a big hedge fund stake fizzled out.

Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NYMX) -NasdaqCM

Target: High $3’s

NYMX

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

Another miss yesterday, but this one was tough, very spiky all day then fell apart right at the close.

Target: $9.00

VTL

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

I’m pretty confident this ends up a killer short at some point, but I’m in no rush. Seems “everybody” is short and they are ringing the Nasdaq bell this afternoon I think. Will watch but this is probably more a play for next week once all the uplisting hype fades.

AVXL

Relypsa, Inc. (RLYP) -NasdaqGS

Made decent money on this yesterday, though it never refused to crack $16, held for what felt like an eternity. I had a play to enter in the $17’s but did not execute because of watching GPRO and TWTR, reminder to focus on the junk not the real stuff even if they are moving. Ended up shorting in the mid $16’s and tried to hold all day.

Target: Pops to set risk, no rush.

RLYP

Watchlist for 10-29-2015 – $TWTR, $VTL, $LOCK, $RLYP

Today’s Watchlist

Hmmm, another day with nothing too interesting. Debating taking the day off.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Twitter, Inc. (TWTR) -NYSE

Long bias will look for pulls.

Target: VWAP

TWTR

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

Glad I cut this a few days ago, just watching to see if it gets crazy.

Target: $10?

VTL

LifeLock, Inc. (LOCK) -NYSE

Will look to short squeezes.

Target: Big para

LOCK

Relypsa, Inc. (RLYP) -NasdaqGS

Fought this yesterday, annoying because it was a perfect “weak open, red to green” ABCD style setup.

Target: $17.00

RLYP

Watchlist for 10-27-2015 – $UQM, $WTW, $HA, $VTL

Today’s Watchlist

Pleased with my trading yesterday, finished the day green and DID NOT overtrade. There was pretty much jack shit to trade with volume yesterday and I fought hard to not enter random boredom trades. I often don’t win that battle of discipline but I did yesterday.

Ideally there is more action today, everything I scan for that looks halfway interesting has crap for volume. I like these charts on watch, but they need to wake up.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

UQM Technologies Inc. (UQM) -NYSE MKT

Appears to be a huge contract win, and relatively low float. I’ll be looking to get long.

UQM

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

This was the main stock I almost shorted about 100 times, decent little pull late day, but never really panned out so glad I stayed away. The trend is still up, but the volume and hype is fading, ideally a squeeze to get short into.

Target: High $16’s

WTW

Hawaiian Holdings Inc. (HA) -NasdaqGS

Very “real” stock but it is for sure way overextended. Thanks to @cuzmane for pointing this one out. Watching for a morning run and then a HOD reject type afternoon fade.

HA

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

This looks ready to crack, ideally a week open and then lose its shit.

VTL

Watchlist for 10-26-2015 – $WTW, $CHLN, $ERII, $VTL

Today’s Watchlist

Glad I recognized no good opportunities or “niche setups” on Friday. No trades and that was a good thing. Basically all my pre market plans did the opposite of what I thought. Of course I often avoid trading on Fridays.

Nothing great on scan this morning,

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

Powerful Oprah continues to keep this up. While I think it can end up being a solid short, its a tricky one. I’ll probably avoid.

Target: Watching for crazy spikes.

WTW

China Housing and Land Development, Inc. (CHLN) -NasdaqCM

Like the chart but volume is really going away.

Target: High $4’s

CHLN

Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) -NasdaqGS

I’m still long bias on this, but at this point I think I’m giving it to much attention. Will look to buy if it can really break out. But so far every push has been a fakeout.

Target: Buy above $7.70’s-$7.90’s

ERII

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

This might be the only stock I miss trading on Friday, but even if I had shorted the morning rush, it hung around all day, and then I’d be forced with the decision to hold it overnight. Glad I didnt have to make that call.

Target: Pops over $7.00

How @joerogan Went From UFC Announcer to 21st-Century Timothy Leary | Rolling Stone

Not a lot of rhyme or reason there, but that’s just how Rogan likes it, and he does have his logic. “Everything we do or try to do, we try to do a better version of it all the time. We’re constantly looking to improve. It’s a big part of being a human being. And I think the podcast improves people, not only the people who listen to it, but me as well.”

Watchlist for 10-23-2015 – $WTW, $ERII, $AVXLD, $NEO

Today’s Watchlist

Good day yesterday, but still annoyed by my lack of conviction. Traded WTW, KNDI and ERII for profits. But in the end poorly, covered KNDI too quick into the wash, covered WTW too quick into the wash, got shook out for small profits in ERII, even though my original stop never got hit, now its running. I traded my plan on NEO buying it but sold for a puny loss even though my stop never got hit, and its gapping up today and will most likely run.

I’ve got a bunch to do today and going to spend some time thinking. I profited on 4 trades yesterday but took about 25% of the profits I should have. And this is not some hypothetical nailing bottoms or tops, I’m saying if I just followed my plan I would have been sitting so much better.

I’m going to work on confidence and for lack of a better term being more “cocky” my timid trading is profitable lately but annoying as hell.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYS

Hoping for spikes to set risk on HOD’s for the fade.

WTW

Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) -NasdaqGS

Hoping for pullbacks to get long, but I’ll probably just sit and watch this grind to $10+……….

ERII

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXLD) -Other OTC

Watching for pops for the multi day fade to black.

AVXLD

Neogenomics Inc. (NEO) -NasdaqCM

Same as ERII, hoping for pulls back to $7.00, but again I’ll just watch it run without me.

NEO

Watchlist for 10-22-2015 – $ERII, $KIRI, $WTW, $NEO, $AVXLD, $PACB

Remember if you purchase Momo Traders by Brady Dahl today 2X the price you pay will be donated to Breast Cancer Research.

Today’s Watchlist

Decent list today. But lately it seems the scan is limited in value, most of the setups seem to show up pre market.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) -NasdaqGS

As mentioned yesterday I went long this when it held $6.50 support. Nice upgrade overnight, I’ll try and be patient with this. The deal they landed appears to be huge.

ERII

Kirin International Holding, Inc. (KIRI) -Other OTC

Every time this shoots up 50 cents I have an alert go off. But I have yet to short it. Its probably a ripe setup just so damn illiquid. Would probably have been smart to just put in small orders for those 50 cent pops and might have ended up with a pretty good average. Just watching this for the next time one resembles it.

KIRI

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

This typifies my biggest frustration with my trading lately. I nailed an entry on this, but then had no conviction and covered for 10 cents or so. It then proceeded to fade all day. I’ve gotten to the point where I take “nail and bail” to seriously, need to let winners run more.

I’m short biased but only on pops. Hoping some late shorts came in yesterday and they will get squeezed out.

Target: Let it run in the morning, if it does, then look to fade it.

WTW

Neogenomics Inc. (NEO) -NasdaqCM

Stalked this ALL DAY yesterday looking for a short entry, it held $6.90’s and then perked over $7.00 after that I’m long biased.

Target: Look to buy the move above previous highs, $7.15-7.20

NEO

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXLD) -Other OTC

I’ve avoided this for weeks, it will crack at some point but seems to just keep holding up. Timing appears to be tough, I have no desire to “swing short” but this is probably a great setup for that.

Target: Right where it’s at, $9.00ish

AVXLD

Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (PACB) -NasdaqGS

Hrmm, earnings tonight, it will crash. But I don’t think I have the balls to hold into earnings.

Target: Fade under $7, but this is probably just a watch because of earnings.

PACB

Watchlist for 10-21-2015 – $ERII, $HEAR, $WTW, $KIRI, $KNDI

Today’s Watchlist

Nothing great yesterday, covered VTL for a decent win. Shorted pops on KNDI per my plan but lost a little. Then got shook out of ERII. This was annoying since I’ve been working on going long these big gainers and felt like I had a good entry. Then at the end of the day some wacky shit happened that spooked me out. Frustrating because I had the right idea and at this point it looks like it would have worked out nicely.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) -NasdaqGS

I’m still long bias, will watch for dips to a support level. $6.50, $6.20, $6.00

ERII

Turtle Beach Corporation (HEAR) -NasdaqGM

I’ve got pretty minimal interest in this, just watching if it gets squeezish.

Target: High $3’s

HEAR

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

Basically feel obligated to add this to watch, but I’m just going to sit and wait for a clear backside. Ideally it does some sort of “fry the shorts” move $20+. Really I should be looking for dips to buy, but doubt I will. If anything I’ll watch this today, just to get a better feel for these. It is day 3 though, this is typically the point where the shorts will capitulate and you will get a pull.

WTW

Kirin International Holding, Inc. (KIRI) -Other OTC

I’ve been watching this for what seems like a week. I set alerts, they go off, but when I bring up the chart there is so little volume I can’t convince myself to enter. I think this will be a killer short, just picking entry is tough.

Target: $6.50, but volume needs to pick up.

KIRI

Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. (KNDI) -NasdaqGS

Had my target at $9.50 in pre yesterday. It hit that target and at the same time TSLA was eating shit. My thought process was KNDI is overextended on little to no news and TSLA should drag down all electric cars. KNDI did nothing but grind up a couple cents. At least I wasn’t stubborn and hold a loser overnight. I covered for a puny loss.

Target: $9.90’s

KNDI

Watchlist for 10-20-2015 – $VTL, $KIRI, $WTW, $KNDI, $ERII, $PACB, $RMTI

Today’s Watchlist

One trade yesterday on $VTL, but never really “felt it”. Bummer of a miss on RMTI, but both of these were such low volume, I never felt solid about going in heavier. While it is a drag its almost smart IMHO. You can be right but lose money going too heavy into illiquid stuff.

Feel like I have too many on watch today, because nothing blows me away, will work to pare this down.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqG

Holding overnight, will try and be patient, but will cover into any pull/wash.

VTL

Kirin International Holding, Inc. (KIRI) -Other OTC

Illiquid and choppy, but will try to short pops.

Target: $5.50

KIRI

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

Still bummed I didn’t buy this yesterday pre market, had the idea and passed for some reason. Now I’m waiting for backside. Will not get to aggressive.

Target: Hopefully some big para short squeezes that set a top to fade this afternoon.

WTW

Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. (KNDI) -NasdaqGS

Target: $9.50

Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) -NasdaqGS

Let it run and be patient.

Target: Para to set top.

ERII

Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (PACB) -NasdaqGS

This is supposed to be on ignore….

Target: High $7’s

PACB

Rockwell Medical, Inc. (RMTI) -NasdaqGM

Target: High $12’s

RMTI
