North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. NADL
NADL topped our list of potential bottom-plays in yesterday morning's premarket report, and it ended up being the primary runner of the day.
We picked up on the stock on a routine scan, after noticing a sizable gap-up in the morning, coupled with the fact that the stock had been repeatedly beaten down over an extended period. All the signs seemed to be pointing toward a significant day for NADL, and that's exactly what transpired.
The stock traded in a daily range from 1.73 on up to 2.87, for a highly respectable single-session swing of 66% that came in on mind-bending volume, on the order of 150X the 30-day average. That type of momentum always has a shot at carrying over, and sure enough, NADL is gapping in the premarket once again today.
The early high is in the 3.50's, extending to total rise we've witnessed in less than 24 hours to roughly 100% and it puts us on alert once again today. We'll be looking for higher highs and higher lows as usual as we watch this one play out.
Excellent Chatroom Calls
Every once in awhile we like to remind our readers on our website as well as our daily newsletter recipients that we conduct live trader's chats via Skype on a daily basis, and any of our readers is more than welcome to participate. All you need to do to get in on the action is send a Skype contact request to username 'stocksumo'. You can sit in and get ideas or offer up some of your own!
Yesterday, one of our chatters gave the room a heads up on Bravatek Solutions, Inc. BVTK shortly before 11AM, and the stock ultimately ran from .0002 to .0011, for an intraday pop of 540% on nearly two billion shares traded.
That brings us to another fantastic call, this time by our very own Stock Sumo, who brought American Leisure Holdings, Inc. AMLH to the attention of the room on March 27th, after which time there was plenty of opportunity to get in at .0003. The stock subsequently ran to a high of .007 two weeks (11 trading days) later, marking an enormous 2233% increase!
If these aren't reasons to get involved with our daily trader's chats, then we don't know what is! There have been a multitude of super-subpenny runners over recent weeks, and these two are prime examples of why we continue to press the issue.
New Options Ideas
We don't want to spend all of our focus on the stock side of things though, especially with our continued success with options trading, so we want to formulate a few ideas based on some things we're seeing in the premarket.
Lululemon Athletica, Inc. LULU – We want to signal both some weekly and extended-range calls this morning on LULU, which has been making attempts at coming off of recent relative lows, with a massive gap on the chart to the upside. We could see this returning to fill at least a portion of that gap. We'll have our eyes on the LULU Weekly $52-53.50 Calls as well as the 05/06 $55-57 Calls.
Delta Air Lines, Inc.DAL – We're looking at DAL for a possible short-term play after its earnings beat this morning. Profits fell by a less-than-expected margin, while positive Q2 guidance was issued. Coupled with a major PR disaster for one of its main competitors this week, and we're definitely interested in seeing if DAL can make an appreciable move. If it does, we'll be looking at the DAL Weekly $45.50-47.50 Calls.
