BIOF, PEIX & Today’s Extended Watchlist

BioFuel Energy Corp. BIOF


Pacific Ethanol, Inc. PEIX

Although these companies are not linked, because of sharing a common sector (alternative fuels), it appears as if they are subject to many of the same trends and outside influences.

BIOF was first added to our radar back in mid-November. We caught it in the middle of a run, and watched it break out from .80-1.25, making overnight gains of more than 50%

We added PEIX on the same day as BIOF, due to a similar surge in buying. The stock saw a subsequent run from 1.01-1.85 (83%)

Both of these stocks have seen a pickup in buying much like we saw in November, and with many analysts calling for gas prices to continue to rise to $4.00 and beyond, we want to keep a close watch over alternative energy plays.
