Pacific Ethanol, Inc. PEIX &
BioFuel Energy Corp. BIOF
Back in February, we caught these two ethanol stocks and rode them for some pretty nice gains. On Friday, both stocks appeared in our extended watchlist, and both stocks had another runaway performance.
BIOF opened at 7.55, and hit a high of 9.89 before closing at 8.98.Intraday gains of 19-30% were possible there.
PEIX had a day’s range of .4513-.52, marking possible gains up to 15%
With the way these two traded on Friday, we definitely want to keep them on our radar this week.
DARA Biosciences, Inc. DARA
DARA is another play from Friday’s Extended Watchlist that really fared well. A possible gain of 16% came when the stock closed at its high of day at 1.09, after dipping as low as .941. Also noteworthy was the huge amount of volume, 7.45M shares traded, to the tune of nearly 30x its 3mo average.
Com-Guard.com, Inc. CGUD
CGUD did not get off to the start we were anticipating on Friday. We added it to our watchlist as a result of the huge volume we saw roll in on Thursday, to no avail. We didn’t see a continuation of that volume, as the stock trended down for the day, seeing a low at .0031 before closing out at .0039.
We are still watching however, to see if the news out late Friday has any positive effect moving forward:
