With a focus on low priced micro- and small-cap stocks,Kevin Kennedy, editor of The Coolcat Report, isolates the "characteristics of past major market winners" to find his new portfolio candidates. For those aware of the inherent risks, we offer his latest trading selections.
"We look for a low price, because it’s easier for a stock to go from two to 20 than it is to go from 20 to 200. We look for a low float, where there is the potential for big demand, and small supply. We also look for high relative strength. Huge winners start as big winners. We look for new highs, which suggest that there are no disappointed buyers holding the stock. We look for breakouts from bases on big volume, and pullbacks on lighter volume. We also look for a low price-to-sales ratio, which often attracts bargain hunters. Here are the latest stocks to meet these criteria.
