Small stocks have been ripping over the last week and today is no different. With stocks like Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies (NASDAQ:QTWW) and OXiGENE, Inc. (NASDAQ:OXGN) up over 100% from their lows in just days, all eyes must be peeled for the next small cap runner.
The small plays on watch are rated based on market capitalization, float, and where they reside on their charts as well as the hot sectors. These factors are key in understanding the next small 100% mover in a day or two.
FuelCell Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:FCEL) is a prime candidate in sympathy to Quantum Fuel Systems. FCEL traded all the way to $2.25 six weeks ago and has fallen since then to the 200 moving average on the daily chart at $1.57. The market cap on FCEL is $125 million which puts it at the upper range of size but still alright. This is on watch for a possible spike higher.
Biostar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BSPM) is a small Chinese biotechnology stock that is trading at the dead lows. With all the fear of fraud in the reverse merger arena for Chinese plays, this stock has been hit drastically. With a P/E of just over 2, it looks to be a possible bounce candidate in the short term. Other Chinese stocks have jumped higher like Fuwei Films (Holdings) Co., Ltd (NASDAQ:FFHL), spiking close to 100% in the last three trading days. Based on the chart, this may be a 50% mover to the upside in the short term.
Last but not least is ARCA biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABIO). This biotechnology stock is trading at a market cap of $20 million. They just inked a major deal with a large pharma company and are at the dead lows of the chart. This fits a perfect sympathy play to OXGN which is up well over 100% in the last few days.
When one trades small capitalization stocks, there is always risk. However, with the risk, there is the possibility of monster rewards. The stocks above may be the big movers in the coming days. Watch them closely,
