Today’s Watchlist

Back from traveling and feeling way behind on scans, I say it everytime but I gotta get my “sea legs” back after casually watching markets this week. Huge list that I will whittle down into the open. Getting back into routine, but also with it being the day before a holiday I will not get to aggressive on shorts. Full watchlist with charts will be back Tuesday.

Watchlist for 3-11-2016 – $VCEL, $OPTT, $ERII, $PEIX, $ASTC, $BTU

Today’s Watchlist

Doing my best to avoid loading up the watchlist with crappy oil and gas. Oil futures up big so today probably not gonna be a short day for them. They will die eventually but not looking like today.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Vericel Corporation (VCEL) -NasdaqCM

Ended up passing on this, was just too cautious, but really felt like it had another run in it. And I try and not to short day 1. Ideally a big rip, its still early and its Friday, if this just grinds up I’m in no hurry and will wait till next week.


Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. (OPTT) -NasdaqCM

Perennial POS, but not much volume.

Target: Push to $3.00


Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) -NasdaqGS

Like the chart, again too low volume though.

Target: $10.00


Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (PEIX) -NasdaqCM

Target: Pops to $6.00 or a late day fade.


Astrotech Corp. (ASTC) -NasdaqCM

Target: $2.40-$2.50


Peabody Energy Corporation (BTU) -NYSE

Huge company, huge volume, but EVERYBODY is short, will wait for a squeeze.


Watchlist 3-31-2014 – $PEIX, $ICLD

Good trading on Friday, nothing great but another solidly green day. Again today almost nothing on the screens, the setups are there every day, just don’t seem to be there before pre market. These couple picks are pretty lame I admit.

Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (PEIX) -NasdaqCM

Squeezed late day friday. Looks like a competitor ($BIOF) might have gotten bought out. So this might jump, if not I see a solid fade potential.


InterCloud Systems, Inc. (ICLD) -NasdaqCM

Thought about shorting this several times on Friday, but it is already down so much off its highs. I’ll be watching, but would be nice to get a big spike.


Watchlist 3-27-2014 – $WWE, $PEIX, $FFHL

Quick and dirty list today, after the big shakeout late day yesterday my screens are coming back pretty dry.

Good news is looks like the market is going to bounce and I’m excited by the potential at and soon after the open.

These short picks though, meh.

Watchlist 3-25-2014 – $PEIX, $IDN, $MVIS, $MNGA, $PTX

While it was a green day in the end, was pretty frustrating all in all. Spent the morning grinding out some solid profits, then went to leave mid day for a dog walk (per my plan). I skipped and ended up entering some shitty trades, that did nothing but gobble up time and mental energy and create small losses. Good news is I stuck to my rules and followed my plan on the actual trades so the losses were small. But managed to turn a good day into a mediocre day by not following my routine. Wrote about it in detail in my journal so hoping it sticks in my stupid brain…

Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (PEIX) -NasdaqCM

Several missed trades on this yesterday, not entirely sure why I never shorted it. I have it in my logbook, but I think I just got scared out by the early choppiness. But soon after the open it was a killer short.


Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (IDN) -NYSE MKT

This was my loser from yesterday, and really should have probably never entered. I thought I saw some fading mid day, but it never really moved. Should have covered for stratch but I waited and took a small loss instead. Positives were that I set a stop, stuck to it and followed my rules. Good lesson in discipline. Plus there are earnings today, I followed my rule of not holding into earnings.


Microvision Inc. (MVIS) -NasdaqGM

Almost shorted this premarket, and while it would have worked out great, it was scary at that point. Not sure how good the news is on this, but I’ll be looking to fade it. Not a ton of downside left.


Magnegas Corporation (MNGA) -NasdaqCM

I always try and avoid pre market trading, but yesterday it burned me, between $MVIS and $MNGA, I missed two great trades. Not sure the lesson, I still think its wise to avoid premarket, but maybe be more aggressive just go in with smaller size.


Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. (PTX) -NasdaqGM

Illiquid stock, but I have done well with shorting these through the years. I do like the chart and there are borrows at $IBKR.


Watchlist 3/24/2014 – $MNGA, $ISR, $PEIX, $ASTM

Today’s pic is the bane of my existence. I try as much as possible to take the middle of the day off and do some thinking and get in some moderate exercise.


Lot of missed trades from Friday, I should have done a recap then. Ended up missing the last couple hours of the day to record a podcast with a buddy. By the time I got back I flat out just forgot to do a trading recap. I’ll be back this afternoon.

Magnegas Corporation (MNGA) -NasdaqCM

I did not realize this fought all the way back at the end of the day! I had assumed this play would be dead by today. Almost shorted a couple times Friday morning, but ended up skipping. There were for sure long and short opportunities both. Be nice to see some crazy spike today to short into later in the day.


IsoRay, Inc. (ISR) -NYSE MKT

This one is probably done for for me. While there is still some downside the easy short is over with. I mainly added it to watch just as a reminder to check in on it at the end of the day to see where its at.


Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (PEIX) -NasdaqCM

A little too high priced for me, plus it’s such a slow mover. My thoughts are its a complete POS, but I’m really struggling with picking an entry. Usually when its not clear to me its best to just avoid.


Aastrom Biosciences, Inc. (ASTM) -NasdaqCM

Annoyed at myself, I swore I almost shorted this Friday, but I see this ticker no where in my notes/tradelog. Looks like it was a solid short in the morning, then like most pennystock shit burgers had a late day short squeeze into the close. Lesson for newbs, its very dangerous to hold shorts into the close on Friday’s, the almost always squeeze.
