Watchlist for 4-13-2016 – $CHK, $LEI, $DRWI, $SKYS, $DNR

Today’s Watchlist

Trying to avoid oil and gas like always, but this BK news by BTU is interesting to see how it plays out on all the the doomed junky oil/gas plays. But beyond the Oil sector not a ton on my radar.

Decent swing on $AVXL yesterday, probably a little too patient but didn’t have much else on my radar so I tried to wait for a big crack. Decent cover since it went Red/Green late day.

Watchlist for 4-12-2016 – $LEI, $UEPS, $CANF, $TRXC, $SKYS, $DRWI

Today’s Watchlist

Wow, will be scanning hardcore going into the open, very very slim pickings on the overnight scans. Most of these are leftover tickers from the last few days, all are starting to fade, but not sure if any are that solid setup for big cracks.

Good fade on AVXL yesterday, overall a good day though slow.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Only short bias on this getting very old in the run. Ideally a morning push.

LEI

Net 1 Ueps Technologies Inc. (UEPS) -NasdaqGS

Will only short into a short squeeze/big para move to the upside. I was slow and missed the buy yesterday.

UEPS

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

Perennial POS, but just not up enough. I don’t see enough meat on the bone at this point. Hoping it runs all morning to get higher.

canf

TransEnterix, Inc. (TRXC) -NYSE MKT

Solid support at $5.00 so not in a rush to short, will look to join if it breaks down through that.

TRXC

Sky Solar Holdings, Ltd. (SKYS) -NasdaqCM

Will look to short any pops.

SKYS

DragonWave Inc. (DRWI) -NasdaqCM

Watching for late day fade/HOD reject.

DRWI

Today’s Watchlist

A little quiet on scans, mostly holdovers from Friday.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

TransEnterix, Inc. (TRXC) -NYSE MKT

Holding $5 pretty well, will look to join a breakdown, but if it continues sideways I’ll take it off the list.

TRXC

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Hoping for a morning pop to get short for a late day fade.

LEI

Sky Solar Holdings, Ltd. (SKYS) -NasdaqCM

Will look to short about any pop, but only if there is at least a little volume.

SKYS

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Solid setup, this thing always fails, but seems “everybody” is short, so probably crowded at this point.

AVXL

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPXX) -NasdaqCM

I consider this a “backside only” type setup, if it breaks down I’ll look to join, that’s the ONLY way I’ll trade it.

CPXX

Genocea Biosciences, Inc. (GNCA) -NasdaqGM

Watching pops with risk on $7.00

GNCA

Watchlist for 4-8-2016 – $LEI, $CPXX, $DRWI, $TRXC, $SKYS, $GNCA, $VVUS

Today’s Watchlist

Meeting this morning so I will miss the open. Which while normally I’m annoyed by today it doesn’t bother me as much, ton of tickers on watch again, will look to reassess and replan when I get back around 10:30 or so.

Small gain on $RLYP like the story and my entry, but $SPY so weak this afternoon.

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

After missing the buy at the open, I was to ornery to try the short, kind of silly to not be more versatile. Oh well.. Looking to short any sort of pop or squeeze out.

LEI

Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPXX) -NasdaqCM

Been watching this for a while and last night got a bash by Cramer. Will look to short but only later, odds are the “home gamers” will make whatever the first move is the wrong move. Probably gaps down then grinds back all day.

CPXX

DragonWave Inc. (DRWI) -NasdaqCM

Not crazy about shorting this on a Friday, ideally it holds up for Monday,though I may look to join if it gets really shitty breaking down today.

DRWI

TransEnterix, Inc. (TRXC) -NYSE MKT

Almost entered this like 3 times @ $5.60, decided to layoff, it then cracked hard minutes later. Would have been mostly luck, but bummer would have been a great win. Looking to short pops today.

TRXC

Sky Solar Holdings, Ltd. (SKYS) -NasdaqCM

Watching for morning push then a late day fade.

SKYS

Genocea Biosciences, Inc. (GNCA) -NasdaqGM

Pops to high $6’s or a late day fade with set risk.

Another quiet day on scans, I still think it is a solid part of preparation and getting “in sync” with the market, but it seems most trades shape up after the open lately.

Reminder, if you are curious how I implement my “Part Time Trading” style, I will be hosting a free webinar at Investor’s Underground after the close at 4:15. Click here to register:

Zafgen, Inc. (ZFGN) -NasdaqGS

My favorite industry to hate on is fat loss pills… But overnight upgrades on this, will try and hit the backside after this pre market pop.

ZFGN

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Oil keeps dropping, this thing appears to be a carcass, will attempt to scale into.

LEI

Nxt-ID, Inc. (NXTD) -NasdaqCM

Just BARELY missed a fill on this, then didn’t want to chase. Bummer, seems like a layup now, but I was afraid of the crowd at the open and thought I could get it higher. Hoping for some pops to around $1.00

NXTD

Kingtone Wirelessinfo Solution Holding Ltd. (KONE) -NasdaqCM

Had a price alert at $5, but it went off, I was watching others, then by the time I checked it had already dropped. Watching for pops to $4 – $4.25

KONE

Watchlist for 1-8-2015 – Good advice from @investorslive $EARS, $MEET, $SUNE, $RLYP, $GSI, $LEI

Today’s Watchlist

Solid trade in $EARS today, though I probably should scaled in more. Market was wacky and most my watches were all down right at the open and I don’t chase so I didn’t have many options to trade. Though that being said if there was ever a day to chase shorts today would have been it. $SUNE, wow what a gift! While I have gotten annoyed with small profits so far in 2016 it is encouraging to see stuff like this from a guy like Nate @investorslive:

Trading is about preserving what you have in times like this and if you’re not careful or chasing a loss trade after trade it starts to compile faster than you know. I’m a broken record in this market because I know these are the times that separate the ones that trade long term vs the ones that had just been getting lucky dip buying and it working out. This is when plans and stops matters. – Nate @investorslive

I’m green EVERY trading day in 2016, I have not SMASHED or NAILED anything, but after reading Nate’s quote I’m pretty happy with my trading so far.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Auris Medical Holding AG (EARS) -NasdaqGM

Though I think it fails I don’t wait it right at $7 on a Friday, ideally $7.50 for a starter then add to a winner.

EARS

MeetMe, Inc. (MEET) -NasdaqCM

Good looking setup, though it held $4 all day today in a UGLY market. Considering it didnt crack $4, I’d like to get short, but only higher.

Target: $4.25

MEET

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

Destroyed on huge volume, this has to be the biggest POS “real” stock I can remember. Would like to short pops though I’m not sure if I’m that brave, it probably goes to zero soon, but it is also down from $30. Probably just a watch out of curiosity.

SUNE

Relypsa, Inc. (RLYP) -NasdaqGS

I remember being short biased on this back in the low $20’s then it ran to $30. Reality seems to have set back in, will short a pop to $22. But its Friday so I will not be that aggressive.

RLYP

General Steel Holdings, Inc. (GSI) -NYSE / Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Same thing for both of these, both I was short, both I took small profits, both had I held would have been HUGE! Both I’ll watch for pops for the ultimate unwind.

GSI

LEI

Watchlist for 1-7-2015 – $EARS, $HTBX, $SUNE, $COOL, $LEI, $GSI, $LPTH

Today’s Watchlist

Good day yesterday, solid trades on $LEI and $AVXL, mediocre trade on $EARS. BUT I covered way to early on $LEI and $AVXL and should have been more aggressive with adds on $EARS. But good news is I stuck to my plan on $EARS and covered for a puny loss, it then RIPPED after hours. Soooo nice to get back inside to check on markets and see a stock that you WERE NOT stubborn on up big. Versus puking because you are saying “Why didn’t I cover this fucking thing and not hold overnight, like my plan said!?!?”.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Auris Medical Holding AG (EARS) -NasdaqGM

Big rip into the close then even more after hours. But it seems to have settled back. Hoping for pops back to the $8 level for entry.

EARS

Heat Biologics, Inc. (HTBX) -NasdaqCM

Doubt I trade this unless it gets absolutely crazy.

HTBX

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

More news, seems almost daily, will look to short pops above $6.00 though I also need to read the news a little closer.

SUNE

Majesco Entertainment Co. (COOL) -NasdaqCM

Miss on this yesterday, needs to really push for me to get interested. Good chance it fades but I want it higher.

COOL

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Sigh so sad I covered…. This thing is a POS and oil keeps fading, but its such a jumpy stock, if I can set an order and get filled on one of its weird pops I’ll take it. Otherwise I’ll just kick the dog every day it fades another 15%…

LEI

General Steel Holdings, Inc. (GSI) -NYSE

Another annoying miss but I was focused on $LEI and $AVXL, looks like this is dead meat after their “pivot” from steel to green tech… Hoping for a “dead pump bounce” to get short.

GSI

LightPath Technologies, Inc. (LPTH) -NasdaqCM

Target: $3.40

Small list today, and I’m not in love with really any of these. Huge market gap down at this point. Thinking main trades may setup after the open. Need to see if the fade continues or if like usual this is just a drop that inevitably just grinds back.

Target: Fade, lower highs for the crack.

LEI

Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (SWHC) -NasdaqGS

Gotta watch this because of the news flow. But I’m a little torn on how to trade it, my thought is to go long or short, based off of VWAP. Thought many times yesterday about going long based on the presidential press conference. Such a no brainer after the fact..

SWHC

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

Hoping for a pop to $5.70-$5.80

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Big pull pre market, hoping a bunch of shorts pile in to squeeze it up. Would like to trade this but most likely not till the afternoon.

LEI

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Surprised this is still hanging around, like always will look to short pops.

Target: $6.00

AVXL

FXCM Inc. (FXCM) -NYSE

Looks to be gapping down. Hoping for pops, but want it way higher.

Target: high $17’s-$18

FXCM

Rovi Corporation (ROVI) -NasdaqGS

Target: Pop’s to $17.00

ROVI

Resource America, Inc. (REXI) -NasdaqGS

Target: Any kind of pop, will not chase or short grinding, but if it perks up I’ll enter.

Weekly Review 6/21-6/25: LEI, ETRM, LTBR, PBTH, PDO, HAUP – I HATE being a part timer..

Another painful week of non trading, so since I have no trades to recap I thought I would highlight some of the juiciest misses from the last week. Of course I have no idea why or what purpose it serves, perhaps just to keep me from losing my sanity by proving that my strategy works and is very high profit and low risk if proper money management is utilized.

Of course I’m contradicting myself to a certain extent, this recent post detailed all the reasons NOT to trade and now I’m bitching that I should have made 5-10 trades this week. Best I can do to justify this counter argument is to state that by being a part timer you will undoubtedly be confronted with stretches like this. When trades are not falling out of the sky into your lap, but they are indeed available and they will be missed from time to time. This pattern will repeat over and over for any part time trader.

Below is just a random sample of stocks I had on watch last week, yes they are cherry picked to a certain extent, but these are the only trades I considered making.

Full list from Yahoo Finance

LEI

Looked to short the rollover at $3, it fell almost a full dollar to $2.20 before bouncing.

ETRM

Would have loooved to short this midweek after a couple red candles. Had it on watch here.

LTBR

Cripes, does it get any prettier to a short seller?!??!!?

PBTH

I had this on “long term” short watch from a week or so ago, gee only $2 off its highs and still fading…

PDO

Much like PBTH I had planned on scaling into a short position, but never implemented it. Another stock off about $2 a share from where I started adding it to watchlists.

HAUP

I actually have a witness on this stock, on the day of the big spike I told my business partner. “This POS will be back to a $1.50 in a couple weeks.” It is well on its way.

Its somewhat interesting in a way, I had pretty high hopes about this post and going in, I thought it would be fun to write. Now that its done, it didn’t turn out near as interesting as I had hoped and actually has done nothing but depress me. I’ll post it, only because its done and over with, but reviewing misses its not nearly as interesting as I thought it would be.
