Coronavirus has increased the demand for face masks. A buy signal was given by The Arora Report to buy the stock of face mask maker Alpha Pro Tech (APT) at $10.02. Three days later in the pre-market it was trading at $47. This has been a very profitable quick trade. This is a chronology of the posts published on ZYX published on ZYX Buy Change Alert.
SIGNAL LIMITED: TWO NEW IDEAS ON APT AND LAKE
If the CDC warning about community spread of coronavirus in the U. S. turns out to be correct, there will be a shortage of face masks and protective gear. Alpha Pro Tech (APT) and Lakeland Industries (LAKE) are high risk high reward trades suitable only for super aggressive experienced investors who can handle potential losses. Most investors should stay away from these trades.
Also these trades will work only if either there is community spread or there is a short squeeze. Note that often such short squeezes start in the after hours.
The buy zone is $8.70 to $10.36. It is trading at $10.02 as of this writing. The stop zone is $8.18 to $8.33. The first target zone in a short squeeze is $14 to $16. The second target zone is $22 to $26. Keep the quantity very small due to high risk but not exceed 20% of full core position size as there is a high probability of the trade not working.
The buy zone is $14.50 to $16. It is trading at $15.73 as of this writing. The stop zone is $13.60 to $14.23. The first target zone in a short squeeze is $19 to $20. The second target zone is $27 to $35. Keep the quantity very small due to high risk but not exceed 20% of full core position size as there is a high probability of the trade not working.
If doing both trades consider limiting the total combined quantity to 25% of full core position size due to very high risk.
SIGNAL LIMITED: APT: 82% GAIN IN TWO DAYS ON THIS FACE MASK MAKER
Alpha Pro Tech (APT) was purchased two days ago at $10.02. It is trading at $18.19 in the pre market as of this writing giving an 82% gain. The stock has gapped open above the first target zone. All subscribers should consider taking partial profits right here.
The second target zone was $22 to $26. However that target might be reached only if coronavirus spreads or there is a short squeeze. Both have reasonable probabilities of happening.
Special note to new subscribers
It is the subscriber’s responsibility to take profits and honor stops. Typically stop zones and target zones are given in the original post. Please also see Trade Management Guidelines for default stops.

SIGNAL LIMITED: APT: RAISE STOPS ON THE REMAINING POSITION IN THIS FACE MASK MAKER
Alpha Pro Tech (APT) is a very volatile stock. There are two options based on personal preference.
- Raise the stops on the remaining position to break even. This option will increase the likelihood of not getting stopped out if the stock eventually moves to the second target zone previously given.
- For those who want to protect the remaining profits, consider a stop zone of $14.73 to $15.38.
Those with small accounts and do not want to take additional risk may simply consider taking profits on the entire position right here. It is trading at $18.78 as of this writing but has traded as high as $19.60 in the pre-market.

What To Do Now

- Take more partial profits. APT is trading at $25 as of this writing.

SIGNAL LIMITED: APT: 370% GAIN IN THREE DAYS DWINDLES TO 250% GAIN IN THIS FACE MASK MAKER
This is in response to your questions. Yesterday we wrote:
Short squeeze is in full bloom. In a short squeeze, Alpha Pro Tech (APT) can go much higher, perhaps $35 to $40 and even higher than $50.
That call has proven spot on. This morning in the pre-market Alpha Pro Tech (APT) stock spiked to $47 but has pulled back to $36 as of this writing. Alph Pro Tech was bought at $10.02 three days ago.
If coronavirus news gets worse, the stock has potential to spike to $60 – $75 zone. However keep in mind the flip side; if coronavirus news gets better the stock will tank. For this reason it is important for all subscriber to have taken at least partial profits.
Also in reviewing this position, take into account your position in protective gear maker Lakeland Industries (LAKE). Lakeland Industries and Alpha Pro Tech tend to move together.
The new stop zone for APT is $19 to $22.43. Those who want a closer stop may consider $29 to $29.43, but this stop will likely get hit. As a caution, stops may not help you because APT can gap down through the stop zones if coronavirus news gets better.
What To Do Now
Those not in the stock may wait for a signal on the Real Time Feed.
Those in the stock and have taken partial profits and are aggressive may consider continuing to hold.
