Bought 1 Million Midatech Pharma PLC American Depositary Shares (MTP) on Nasdaq on Apr 24 at $3.60 per share

 

Had posted thin on our Uniquely Toronto Facebook page. Moving it over this to this site.

This is the last of the buys for the Regular Portfolio from last week. Bought 1 Million shares of Midatech Pharma PLC American Depositary Shares (MTP) on Nasdaq on Apr 24 at $3.60 per share.

Why.

Major Price Breakout upwards with a huge spike in Volume. IMHO Volume Spike usual tend to indicate the Trend Direction will change.  Expected price consolidation after price spike. Did not expect the price to drop this much. Holding, as this should bounce back up after hitting support

When the price spiked up on Apr 24 it hit resistance and came back. Once the price starts back up and goes through that resistance (just under $4.00) the price should rise to the next resistance level around $5.00. Will likely try to sell around $4.90 per share.  Yes, this trade is sitting at a loss, but IMHO the price is above the Support level and so I’m going to be patient and give this trade some time. 

This stock is an example of the danger of trading Gaps. If I were to sell now, I would take a major hit. In contrast, look at the price of HELE since it Gapped. The price of HELE has risen daily since the Gap day. Hard to predict short term price action. I’m playing MTP for the longer term.

Next week I will try to buy 1,000 shares of HELE (Helen of Troy Limited) on Nasdaq at $135.50

Will try to buy 1,000 shares of HELE (Helen of Troy Limited) on Nasdaq at $135.50. It was trading a bit above $139.00 all Friday and closed a bit higher than that. I tried getting filled on Friday, but did not. I will try again next week. $135 is the Support level. Price should consolidate for a few days next week. If I get 1,000 shares at 135.50 per share, then will likely sell at $144.40.

From the latest Earnings Call Conference on April 26 : “This quarter caps great full year results. Net sales for the full fiscal year 2019 grew 5.8%. Leadership Brands grew 8.9%. Online sales grew approximately 28%, and adjusted diluted EPS grew 11.3%
