Watchlist for 7-21-2015 – $EXEL, $GENE, $VLTC

Today’s Plan:

Hmm struggling to find pennystocks to trade, all the good action seems to be in “real” companies, which I don’t like to trade, $FIT, $PYPL, $FB, $GPRO etc.

I need to leave mid day so I’ll attempt to only trade my types of stocks and not get sucked into the larger caps. Bummer is it’s frustrating to watch, but invariably they will set you up when you have to leave. Sucker you into a bad trade, you leave for the day annoyed, and probably come back to find it worked…. Better to just catch up on projects.

Ideally get some late adds to watch pre market.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Exelixis, Inc. (EXEL) -NasdaqGS

Looks to be dying in pre, hoping for a pop to get short into. I won’t chase.

Target: $6.25

EXEL

Genetic Technologies Limited (GENE) -NasdaqCM

Almost exact comments as $EXEL, I think this fades away like it always does, but gapping down. I’ll only short into strength.

Target: $4.50

GENE

Voltari Corporation (VLTC) -NasdaqCM

Yesterday was the day for this one, but I was on the road. Looks like the beginning of the end.

Target: Pop’s towards $8.25

VLTC

Watchlist for 5-11-2015 – $ICLD, $VLTC, $PTBI, $YELP, $GEVO, $CALA, $TASR, $CHOP

Today’s Plan:

Running low on time, took the kids to school this morning. All these are my standard, short into pop’s strategy. I’ll post more detail if I get caught up.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

InterCloud Systems, Inc. (ICLD) -NasdaqCM

Target: $4.00

Watchlist for 4-27-2015 – $AMCN, $CALI, $ENZN, $LOOK, $UEC, $VLTC

Today’s Plan:

Good day Friday, stuck to the plan across the board. Missed several good trades, $UEC, $ENZN, $LOOK, all hit my targets but I had $ADXS, $VGGL, and $CALI so was to busy to go after those. Ideally looking for some pops to get short into.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

AirMedia Group Inc. (AMCN) -NasdaqGS

Got some overnight, looking to add to pops.

Target: $5.25

AMCN

China Auto Logistic Inc. (CALI) -NasdaqCM

I like my covers Friday, I gave it time to crack $2, but when it held up I covered for a nice profit and had zero overnight risk. Looks to be grinding up a little premarket, hoping for a spike out of the gate.

Target: $2.50

CALI

Enzon Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ENZN) -NasdaqCM

As mentioned above I had this on watch at $1.85 but passed, looks like it might get there again today. Hopefully a parabolic gap up, otherwise I’ll start scaling in for the fade.

Target: $1.80’s-$1.90

ENZN

LookSmart, Ltd. (LOOK) -NasdaqCM

Again much like ENZN, but while it hit my target I decided to pass, a trader I highly respect was trading this on the long side so it scared me out of the short. Gimme a pop today baby!

Target: $2.20’s

LOOK

Uranium Energy Corp. (UEC) -NYSE MKT

This hit my target as well, but after my frustration with PBR, and NYSE stock I went into the day determined not to trade any big board stocks. Was a good short, but oh well.

Target: $2.60

UEC

Voltari Corporation (VLTC) -NasdaqCM

May experiment with shorting a pop. Soo many times in my career stocks go off watch after the big drop, but this thing has sooo much downside. I think a week or two from now it will be a painfully obvious short.

Target: Pops – small size, try and swing.

VLTC

Watchlist for 4-23-2015 – $LOOK, $VGGL, $ONVO, $GBSN, $ENZN, $VLTC, $ADXS, $HZNP

Today’s Plan:

Sooo yesterday was a good day. But feel like I made poor decisions all over the place. $ADXS is probably the worst, I took a minuscule amount of the move I’d been waiting weeks for. Took 50 cents when had I taken a step back and let it work it could have been $1.50 per share. I feel I am evolving though, I recognize the poor decision of covering when I did as it happens real time. I’m just not following through. I ranted about it quite a bit in my personal journal. I’ll get better at it as I continue to improve.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

LookSmart, Ltd. (LOOK) -NasdaqCM

Not sure why I missed this yesterday, think I was just busy with others and never had my alert go off. At this price I’m no big fan, I’ll keep my alert at previous highs, otherwise I’ll ignore.

Target: $2.40

LOOK

Viggle Inc. (VGGL) -NasdaqCM

Another poor trade. I waited literally ALL day for it to hit $3, then I took the trade I wanted, but covered for measly 15 cents a share. In the end I am glad I didnt hold over night, but this closed pretty weak.

Target: $3.00

VGGL

Organovo Holdings, Inc. (ONVO) -NYSE MKT

Had my target at $6 yesterday and it never quite got there, looks to be running out of steam so I’ll move down a little.

Target: $5.50

ONVO

Great Basin Scientific, Inc. (GBSN) -NasdaqCM

I wanted $6.25 on this, though I never really thought it would get there, in hindsight I could have wiggle a little and hit $6 instead. This probably starts the long death spiral now, but I’ll watch for pops.

Target: High $5’s

GBSN

Enzon Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ENZN) -NasdaqCM

Keeping my target at $2, patience kept me out of this yesterday, which I’m glad. Its up a lot but not really that much. Theres not that much meat on the bone unless it goes crazy.

Target: Over $2

ENZN

Voltari Corporation (VLTC) -NasdaqCM

Had this on ignore, the last couple days. But I need to adapt to be ready for the backside. Its fine and IMHO opinion wise to stay away from these the first couple days. But be ready when they start to crack. Not sure how I should play this so I will probably ignore, but if it can spike real hard to the high teens I may enter small.

Target: $17-$18

VLTC

Advaxis, Inc. (ADXS) -NasdaqCM

While a good trade yesterday still a lot of small tight candles on this. While I think it cracks at some point, I’m hoping for one more push to short. I wont try and chase it down.

Target: $24

adxs

Horizon Pharma plc (HZNP) -NasdaqGS

Basically broke even on this, but I consider it one of my best trades of the day. I had a plan to catch a late day crack, and intentions of not holding overnight. I didn’t get the crack so I covered up at 3:55. Sure wasted a lot of time watching it, but I stuck to my plan, never added out of frustration and got out before the close, EXACTLY as I had it written down.

Target: $31.50

HZNP

Watchlist for 4-21-2015 – $AMCN, $CHOP, $ADXS, $NYMX, $BIOC, $VLTC

Today’s Plan:

Very boring day yesterday, there were trades to be made but all the stocks I was watching were not worth a shit. Then I had a ton of distractions in the afternoon which ended up getting me “stuck” in a bunch of crappy overnight positions. Something I need to work on, at least I recognize it when I do it though. When I get a bunch of phone calls and commitments to do other things, instead of just gutting all my positions I will “let them work” while I do other things. That shit never works, you come back an hour later upside down, then add more patience. In a foolish way.

So I’m in 3 stocks, 2 of them are green but barely. Had I been quicker in the morning and not distracted I could have been in cash in the afternoon and went and done other things. Patience in trading is truly a double edged sword.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

AirMedia Group Inc. (AMCN) -NasdaqGS

Waited for entry at $4.70, probably should have covered early in the day. As mentioned above decided to watch paint dry all day and hold overnight.

Target: I will add under $4 and try and ride this all day. Otherwise I’ll cover at flat.

AMCN

China Gerui Advanced Materials Group Ltd. (CHOP) -NasdaqGS

Again, waited for entry at $4.30, got the fill I wanted, but this seems to want to base at $4. I waited for that crack, it never came, probably should have covered.

Target: Add under $4, stop at flat, $4.30’s

CHOP

Advaxis, Inc. (ADXS) -NasdaqCM

This is the primary reason for my frustration in the daily notes above, had a 50 cent drop and for some stupid reason did not cover. Then got distracted and was upside down. Decided to “hope” it would come back, annoying and frustrating.

Target: Add at $19.50, cover at $20.20

ADXS

Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation (NYMX) -NasdaqCM

I’ll only enter this if it comes to me, otherwise ignore.

Target: starter at $2.

NYMX

Biocept, Inc. (BIOC) -NasdaqCM

Same as NYMX, only trade if it comes to me, I won’t get suckered into a bad entry.

Target: Starter at $4.

BIOC

Voltari Corporation (VLTC) -NasdaqCM

This is just a watch, doubt I will trade it, probably should not put it on the list. But I can’t help myself.

Target: $11??

VLTC

Watchlist for 4-20-2015 – $CHOP, $AMCN, $GBSN, $BLDR, Testing @swedepilot (NWI) on $VLTC @investorslive

Today’s Plan:

Minimized gains BIG TIME on friday, but two small trades and two solid winners ($ADXS, $BLDR). $ADXS looks to crash today/this week so I should have held small overnight. Will be watching any good pops on $BLDR to possibly swing this week.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

CHOP

Probably my number one potential short, will look to scale into pops.

Target: Spikes above $4

CHOP

AMCN

Been waiting for the one last push to fade, gimme $5.

Target: $5

AMCN

GBSN

This has been in play for weeks, but I don’t think I’ve traded it since late March. Has gotten awful choppy, but watching for another top at high $4’s – $5.

Target: $5

GBSN

BLDR

Would like to start into this right where I foolishly covered on Friday, $13.20’s-$13.30

Target: $13.25

BLDR

VLTC

Another day no borrows for me, if I wasn’t an idiot I’d adapt and be buying this. Paper traded the @swedepilot NWI (Nate warning indicator) on Friday. Perhaps today @investorslive will be chastising shorts about being stubborn and I can use that as a buy opportunity.

Target: When @investorslive warns shorts more than 2-3 times in a couple hours.

VLTC

Watchlist for 4-17-2015 – $AMCN, $INVE, $VGGL, $BLDR, $CHOP, $ADXS, $VLTC

Today’s Plan:

Good grind it out kind of day yesterday, nothing great but a lot of my primary watches I could not short ($AMCN, $CHOP, $VLTC) so I ended up trading secondary watches, ($ADXS, $VGGL). Nothing on the scans that I am super excited about today. And since its Friday and been a busy week I will look to move my entries to ideal spots and trade small.

Today’s List: AMCN

No borrows yesterday, but easy to borrow today. I really like this but only on pops, hoping for a push to $5.

Target: $5.00 for starter and add

AMCN

INVE

Watched this all afternoon and had an alert go off at $12.59, but chose not to enter. In the end I’m fine with that since it held up and I would have been tempted to hold overnight. Considering it did hold I won’t short unless I get a spike.

Target: High $12’s

INVE

VGGL

Made some peanuts on this, but missed my ideal entry in the $2.30’s because I was watching to many stocks at the open. It probably fades for days, but I’m only interested if it gets some kind of crazy spike to the $2.50’s. Theres money to be made even at $2, but I have no desire to hold it for days and wait.

Target: $2.50

VGGL

BLDR

This is a little to “real” for me, not a POS pennystock. But the chart is interesting for sure.

Target: $14.50

BLDR

CHOP

No borrows for me, please keep going for next week!

Target: $5

CHOP

ADXS

This is starting to fade and $ADRO does not look healthy either. Covered all because I was determined to be in cash overnight, but the smart move would have been to hold a 1/4 or 1/3 position. Ideally a spike to get short into again.

Target: $20

ADXS

VLTC

No borrows on this all week, but its so crowded, it always does the opposite of what you think it should. If anything since I have no borrows the smart move would be to buy it every time it looks like a short….

Target: $10

VLTC

Watchlist for 4-16-2015 – $AMCN, $CHOP, $VGGL, $VLTC, $ADXS

Today’s Plan:

Solid day yesterday, a little slow making a point to implement my new rules. Looking to be a solid day today, lots of good setups, almost too many. As part of my enforcement of daily review I’ll be doing a recap video again this afternoon.

Today’s List: AMCN

Hoping for one more push to get short into.

Target: $5.00

AMCN

CHOP

My plan was to short this at $3 yesterday, but when it spiked it was so late in the day, and I’ve been so annoyed by overnight holds lately I chose to skip it. Looks like a total short squeeze, hoping for one more spike.

Target: $3.20’s

CHOP

VGGL

Traded this “ok” yesterday, but followed my plan exactly, sat back and waited for it to touch $2.30 before shorting. So I did EXACTLY what I wanted, bummer was the stock never cracked. That happens, cant create something for nothing. But thinking this collected a lot of shorts yesterday that didnt close out like I did. Squeeze dem bitches to give me entry!

Target: High $2.40’s-$2.50

VGGL

VLTC

Watching, but bummer is looks like I can’t short it. I think there is a good chance this squeezes back to $9 one more time before dying.

Target: $9 – small size, with risk on high $9’s

VLTC

ADXS

Aggravating to get bought in on this, when I ended up being right. Had a good price but got kicked out. $ADRO will probably be strong today, looking for a pop on ADXS to short into to.

Target: $19-$19.50

ADXS

Watchlist for 4-15-2015 – $AMCN, $CYTR, $GBSN, $VLTC, $CHOP, $REPH

Today’s Plan:

Majorly distracted yesterday, was annoyed by a couple buy ins and wasted time watching them all day. Pointless, nothing I could do, but it ended up using a ton of mental capital and focus. Theme for today will be to focus, nothing else to do but trade.

Today’s List: AMCN

Will let this gap up, then short backside.

Target: $4.00, after any morning spike.

AMCN

CYTR

Thinking this starts to fade back, will look to join.

Target: Low $4.70’s – $4.60’s

CYTR

GBSN

Keeping this on watch for backside. To crazy and random for me right now. Hopefully some huge spike to weed out the early shorts.

Target: Wait for backside.

GBSN

VLTC

Basically the same as GBSN, this pops when you think it will drop and drops when you think it will pop. I’ll wait it out for now.

Target: Crazy parabolic. High $8’s – Low $9’s

VLTC

CHOP

This is officially into the “backside” IMHO, would like a little spike for entry.

Target: $2.60’s-$2.70’s

CHOP

REPH

Scary, probably just watching for today.

REPH
