Watchlist for 10-6-2015 – $CTRV, $PACB, $RJET, $BCEI, $XNPT

Today’s Watchlist

Annoying day yesterday, had to think about that word choice, almost went with frustrating. But on second thought it wasn’t frustrating it was “just one of those days” I traded my plans and some of them “kind of worked” and others didn’t but I kept to my stops and did not add to losers. Biggest thing I have learned this year is not trying to force things. Its one thing to put on a trade and have it not go your way or maybe have it move 10 cents when you wanted 50 cents, but it’s a completely different and perilous prospect to keep adding and trying to “make it work”. I’ve grown to be much more diligent in risk management. And proud of that.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CTRV) -NasdaqCM

Lost a couple cents on this yesterday but considering the ramp into the close it was a good cover. But it’s now fading pre market, bummer. Will watch for pops.

Target: $5.00+

CTRV

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

Another trade from yesterday that appears I had the right idea, just didnt want to hold over night. Some sympathy play of this got crushed. But who knows it could have just as easily been positive news and I’d be crying about how stupid it was to hold a biotech overnight. I’ll take the couple hundred dollar profit and no overnight stress/risk.

Target: Anything over $6.00

PACB

Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) -NasdaqGS

Just watching for now, ideally some sort of spike towards $7, or will look to join weakness.

Target: $7.00 or afternoon fading.

RJET

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (BCEI) -NYSE

Target: Basically the same as RJET, pop’s towards $7.00 or fading.

BCEI

Xenoport, Inc. (XNPT) -NasdaqGS

Target: $4.75 for a starter.

XNPT

Watchlist 10-5-2015 – $PACB, $RJET, $CANF, $XNPT, $BCEI

Today’s Watchlist

Extreme lack of trading volume the end of last week. But again nothing ever felt that great. I think I’m “jonesing” to make a trade at this point, so I will enforce smaller entry sizes. Have all day to trade today so in no rush.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

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

Gapping a little in pre, hoping for a big move to start into. If it grinds will attempt a HOD reject play in the afternoon.

Target: Para on $7. Otherwise afternoon fade with HOD as stop.

PACB

Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) -NasdaqGS

Glad I avoided this Thur/Fri, would have been painfully annoying watching it. Same plan as last week, hoping for a spike to get all the shorts out from last week then the fade.

Target: $6.20-$6.50

RJET

Can-Fite BioPharma Ltd. (CANF) -NYSE MKT

Backside is officially in, well probably was in a couple days ago. Short pops towards $4.00

Target: $3.90’s – $4.00

CANF

Xenoport, Inc. (XNPT) -NasdaqGS

Looking to short pops with last weeks highs as a stop.

Target: $4.60’s – $4.70s stop on $5.00

XNPT

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (BCEI) -NYSE

Random ticker I picked up off of Twitter. Hoping it gets crazy $6+

Target: Parabolic to $6.00+

BCEI

Watchlist for 10-2-2015 – $PACB, $RJET, $CANF, $TRVN

Today’s Watchlist

My lack of interesting plays on scan yesterday kept me away. At this point glad I didnt trade, $EVOK was one that I obviously missed out on. But I think by staying away and not trading I probably came out ahead on a day like yesterday. Would I have traded $EVOK well? Who knows, but if I stuck around for 8 hours and stared at screens and forced some other mediocre trades, most likely I’d give any gains back….

Similar day today and its a friday and I have things to do outside of trading including a meeting at 9AM. So likelihood I trade today is very low.

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

I’m short biased, but don’t think this is done yet. I have an alert set at $6.00 but if that goes off afternoon on a Friday, no way I short it. Ideally this goes crazy, squeezes shorts and I’m ready on Monday.

Target: $6.00+

PACB

Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) -NasdaqGS

As long as this sits at this $6.00-$6.20 level I’ll ignore. Waiting for either a crack under $6.00 or some sort of para “squeeze em out” type move. I really think the only reason its staying up at this point is shorts keep adding waiting for that crack under $6.00. So at this point longs have no reason to sell and will just sit and wait.

Target: $5.90 breakdown or a para move towards $7.00, if it just grinds up I won’t short.

RJET

Can-Fite BioPharma Ltd. (CANF) -NYSE MKT

Trevena, Inc. (TRVN) -NasdaqGS

This are more slow fade type setups, not going to enter today but they are watches for next week. Plan is the same on both, short pops.

CANF

TRVN
