BASI daytrade for 2/28/2017

Posted By on Feb 28, 2017 | 0 comments

We shorted this Bioanalytical Systems ($BASI stock) today. This was the 2nd day run up on no news. Stock ended up trading ~3x its float today which signals massive stock manipulation, which doesn't bode too well for it holding its +100% run gain this week. Reasons why we initiated the short position in BASI like all the other microturd pumps are because the company is running on fumes in terms of its cash position as well as the...

KEM daytrade for 2/24/2017

Posted By on Feb 26, 2017 | 0 comments

When a listed stock has a parabolic rise for any reason, we take note of the much desired price movement and watch for signs of eventual topping out, making it a prime example for a short scalp. This is what happened in KEMET Corporation ($KEM stock) last Thursday and Friday. KEMET announced Thursday that it will acquire NEC TOKIN from NEC. Since NEC TOKIN will be debt-free, Wall Street gave this acquisition a big two thumbs up as the...

We took this opportunity to initiate an extremely cautious tiny short position in the name (as you never know how high these microturds will fly) and...

Retailers have been going berserk since Trump won the election. And with black Friday coming up, investors usually chase retailers up more than they should. Today $CAL (Caleres stock) reported in-line earnings and yearly guidance but the stock was taken up +17% on the day. We thought this was a classic example of black Friday retailers chasing as well as end of the year sheep portfolio managers trying to catch the S&P index...

HTGM trade for 10/12/2016

Posted By on Oct 12, 2016 | 0 comments

Here's another prime example of why nanocap stocks are easy shorts for traders who have balls to step in front of the train. Today HTG Molecular Diagnostics ($HTGM stock) announced a vague development program with some big German companies. No concrete financial terms were mentioned at all in the press release. This for us was a clue to get short on any possible price rips $HTGM may have that day. In addition, if you look at its daily...
