Watchlist for 12-1-2015 – $AVXL, $VLTC, $MNGA, $VTL, $HART, $NCTY

Today’s Watchlist

Hmm watchlist was very strong yesterday. I missed out on way more than I had thought. Had a bunch of stuff going on outside of trading. Was trying to manage a bunch of projects, emails, presentations, phone calls etc during the morning rush. Silly. All of this business could have waited for the mid day lull. This is something I need to work on. The hours of 8-11 should be locked down. Still profited yesterday on $VLTC but being busy with all of these things I never added to my starter so while the percentage gain was killer the dollar gain was just mediocre.

More focus today…

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (AVXL) -NasdaqCM

Would like to build a position in this. Shorting pops, ideally an all day fade with another crack into the close.

AVXL

Voltari Corporation (VLTC) -NasdaqCM

Had I been more focused I would have been adding pops through the day. Then covered 1/2 into the wash at the close and held small overnight. Instead I was so small I just covered all when I left to go hunting around 3PM.

Target: Pops above or around $7.00

VLTC

MagneGas Corporation (MNGA) -NasdaqCM

This stock always cracks me up when it pops, though I don’t know if I have ever shorted it. Very strong last week or so, price pushing and volume building, probably a solid long at this point for the breakout. But I’ll wait for a para to get short.

mnga

MNGA

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

Closed super weak, will hope for pops early and grinding mid day then a perk for a short into the close.

VTL

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

Well I “nailed” this in so much as I said I would not short. Still just watching, hopefully it gets crazy to setup a backside move.

HART

The9 Limited (NCTY) -NasdaqGS

Target: Looking to short the $4.20 level

NCTY

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

VTL

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
