Watchlist for 2-4-2016 – $AMDA, $VHC, $VIAV, $HNSN, $PACB, $AVXL, $TRXC

Today’s Watchlist

Blegh, my scans are clogged up with natural resources, metals, oil etc…..

Of course I miss the open yesterday and have a shower of great plays, I’m back for the open today and don’t see jack shit… Oh well often the bleakest days turn into the best, just not in love with this watch list TBH.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Amedica Corporation (AMDA) -NasdaqCM

Target: $3.00

AMDA

VirnetX Holding Corp (VHC) -NYSE MKT

Obviously winning a lawsuit against $AAPL is a positive, but Apple will probably hire more lawyers and weasel out of it. Looking for “crazy” pops.

Target: No desire to “hit the top” ideally a crazy rush out of the gate and an all afternoon fade with set risk at HOD.

VHC

Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAV) -NasdaqGS

Probably too “real” for me, but watching for a pop over $6 and fade.

VIAV

Hansen Medical, Inc. (HNSN) -NasdaqGM

Target: $3.50

HNSN

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

Target: $12.50

PACB

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Target: $5.00

AVXL

TransEnterix, Inc. (TRXC) -NYSE MKT

Target: $3.30

TRXC

Watchlist for 12-28-2015 – $REXI, $RWLK, $AVXL, $CNIT, $SUNE, $PACB, $OHRP

Today’s Watchlist

Big list today, REALLY looking forward to getting back to work today! Love the long weekend, but seems like forever since trading was open.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Resource America, Inc. (REXI) -NasdaqGS

Watching for push to high $4’s.

REXI

ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (RWLK) -NasdaqGM

Still just in watch mode for exhaustion. No desire to be on the frontside, if this can para I may start into it, but if it just grinds up I’ll ignore for now.

RWLK

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Looking tired, may start scaling into this.

AVXL

China Information Technology, Inc. (CNIT) -NasdaqGS

Gapping a little this morning, hopefully it runs out of the gate.

Target: $2.70-$2.80

CNIT

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

Target: $6.00

SUNE

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

Target: $13.50

Ohr Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OHRP) -NasdaqCM

Target: $6.40

OHRP

Watchlist for 12-21-2015 – $RWLK, $PACB, $AVXL, $SUNE, $FXCM

Today’s Watchlist

Was in and out a lot Friday so only ended up trading $SUNE. Annoying that I held it all day, but in the end I managed it pretty well and exited for a small loss. Good trade considering it is gapping up today. All of these stocks on watch I want pop’s. Nothing I’m excited about getting short right at the open.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

ReWalk Robotics Ltd. (RWLK) -NasdaqGM

Target: $15.00

RWLk

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

Strong chart right now, adding to watch to wait for backside.

PACB

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Keep talking about shorting that $8 level but keep ignoring… Will look to get more aggressive now that this is getting long in the tooth.

Target: $8.00

AVXL

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

As mentioned above, this was a loser, but happy with how I traded it. Of course it was a pretty mediocre setup probably should not have been as patient as I was. But I followed my plan, refused to hold over the weekend, and avoided that stress.

Target: $7.50

SUNE

FXCM Inc. (FXCM) -NYSE

Very similar idea to PACB, let it run/squeeze, will look to short after the top is in. Probably later this week.

FXCM

Watchlist for 11-20-2015 – $EROS, $WTW, $AVXL, $ZIOP, $HART, $MITK, $PACB

Today’s Watchlist

Solid day yesterday, had good gains on WTW so let GMCR take me for a little ride. Not sure why but I had a lot of confidence in GMCR. Though in the end the trade was TERRIBLE risk to reward I made a nice profit. Funny thing is it’s so obvious when you let a trade beat you up, you get scared to add at the right time and then cover the INSTANT you are green. My cover was minutes before an even bigger crack… Oh well. Green is green, though the process was flawed.

Lot’s of biotech’s I’ll be EXTRA cautious on these until the KBIO madness runs out of steam.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Eros International Plc (EROS) -NYSE

Kind of annoyed staring at GMCR kept me out of this yesterday. But the spike was pretty late in the day, and again considering the madness of KBIO, there was no way I was going to short something at 3PM and hold it over. Ideally a spike today.

Target: $10.25-$10.50 risk on $11

EROS

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

Same drill, watch for spikes.

Target: $27, risk on $27.50

WTW

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Decent setup yesterday, but I was trading WTW.

Target: $6.50

AVXL

ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc. (ZIOP) -NasdaqCM

I was locked on this as well yesterday but never pulled the trigger.

Target: $13.50

ZIOP

Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology, Inc. (HART) -NasdaqCM

Getting close to ignore, this probably ends up a solid short, it will drop 20% plus at some point, but when and how who knows. I just don’t like it at $2, want it way higher.

HART

Mitek Systems, Inc. (MITK) -NasdaqCM

Watching, no real target, hoping for a big move to get short.

MITK

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

Strong biotech chart, will watch but be extra cautious.

PACB

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 10-20-2015 – $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

Watchlist for 10-19-2015 – $VTL, $KIRI, $PACB, $XNPT

Today’s Watchlist

Another kind of frustrating day Friday, held PACB overnight, which I hate, it faded a little out of the gate, then bounced, I covered at even, it then pulled 30-40 cents, annoying. But at the same time, it never cracked so even when it pulled I probably would not have covered and sat around all day as it ground back. Then I would have covered into the close for peanuts after wasting my whole day.

Instead I covered flat and went and did other things and had a great day outside of trading. It is what it is, it was Friday and I knew stuff will often hold up. Last few weeks shorts have been pretty annoying. Going to continue to work on my long game.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

Shorted this Thursday for flat (seems to be a trend), best play would have been Thursday. Since Friday it ground all the way back. My target was $7.00 but no way I was shorting at 3PM on a Friday.

Target: $7+ para, not grinding.

VTL

Kirin International Holding, Inc. (KIRI)

Jumpy, if I trade this it will be small.

Target: $6.00

KIRI

Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (PACB)

Can’t believe I’m adding this to watch again, but I think this just keeps piling up shorts. And while I may not make any money on it, at least I keep covering for flat or puny losses. Waiting/hoping for a squeeze em out move.

Target: big para

PACB

Xenoport, Inc. (XNPT) -NasdaqGS

Fishing for setups.

Target: $6.00

XNPT

Watchlist for 10-8-2015 – $PACB, $RJET, $CANF, $SUNE, $ADXS, $BCEI, $SGY

Today’s Watchlist

Great day yesterday! Traded my plan across the board and was done by noon. Other than entering mid day even my loser was a solid trade. Feel like I’m reaching a little on some of these setups today. I also need to leave this afternoon. Two back to back good days so I will focus on letting things come to me. Plus trading a lot of tickers the last couple days I don’t like that habit. Going to really force myself to be selective today, especially since I’m not in love with anything.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

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

Gasp! Of course $PACB is on the list, I had the idea (credit @investorslive) to go long a couple days ago instead of fighting short. Never took it. I’m not going to be a hero on this short, highly doubt I trade it today, just watching for some crazy and I mean CRAZY move up. Otherwise solely on watch to keep an eye for backside.

Target: Huge move up, $9.00+

PACB

Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) -NasdaqGS

Not sure if I fully understand the news and how bad it is. I won’t chase but looking for pops to short.

Target: $6.20-$6.30

RJET

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

Had this on “backburner” watch forever it seems, every time it spikes I have alerts go off, but never enter. Watching for more spikes.

Target: $5.00+ with stop on $5.50

CANF

SunEdison, Inc. (SUNE) -NYSE

If you have visited this blog anytime in the last two months, I’m pretty sure you know the plan on $SUNE.

Target: $10.00

SUNE

Advaxis, Inc. (ADXS) -NasdaqCM

I’m probably a little too biased but thinking this is total short squeeze, it will give it all back, but there will be spikes in between now and then. I want no pain from it, so I will short “squeeze em out” pain moves.

Target: Not sure on a price, will be watching for a para type move, the kind of move we all capitulate on and cover in anger. This could grind all day then hit that move. Will only short a BIG candle.

ADXS

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (BCEI) -NYSE
Stone Energy Corp. (SGY) -NYSE

Shitty energy plays, tied to oil, both NYSE, meh. I’ll watch/trade these only if there is nothing else. Basically if oil eats shit, they will eat shit, if oil holds up, they will hold up. What do I know about the movement of oil? Hmm how about absolutely nothing….

Today’s Watchlist

No recap video yesterday, I lost power about 3:30 and by the time it came back on I’d moved on to doing other things.

Ended up green on the day, but over traded again. I primarily blame $PACB, I don’t even know how many times I went in and out, even flipped long at one point. I traded probably 5 tickers, no surprise I made no big profits on any of them. I am not good at managing multiple positions and will invarible close out as soon as I see green. Less is more, will focus on that today.

Not crazy about a lot of these, almost everything on scan is a beat down chart spiking up. Those types of charts are hard to set risk on, if they are down huge, you never really know how much they can come back. Tons of tickers on scan, just not that many I like.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

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

As mentioned annoyed by this one, going to use the @investorslive method. Watching for weak open then red/green. Or parabolic to get short. If it just kind of bangs around I’ll ignore. Done focusing on this one all day.

PACB

Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) -NasdaqGS

Made peanuts on this, knew I shouldn’t short fading but thought I’d try it, of course it held up. Back to my original plan of only shorting a parabolic.

Target: parabolic towards $7.00

RJET

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (BCEI) -NYSE

Shorted this from $7.00 to $6.90, whoo hoo!! Probably cracks but I’ll only short a big move up.

Target: Para towards $8.00 ignore grinding

BCEI

Alcoa Inc. (AA) -NYSE

Not a fan of “real” stocks, but I’ll watch this for a squeeze type move.

Target: $11.50-$12.00

AA

Willbros Group Inc. (WG) -NYSE

Random watch item, probably will be no volume, but I like the chart.

Target: $2.50

WG
