Top Biotech Penny Stocks to Watch — January 27, 2021

SO many hot biotech penny stocks to watch right now — but don’t miss these 10.

These stocks are running on hype of new drugs, technical breakouts, conference presentations, and good ol’ hot sector momentum.

This week I’m watching stocks with high volume. Because it doesn’t matter how good you think a company’s news is … If there’s no volume, nobody cares.

Never believe the hype

I day trade stocks — I don’t believe in them or invest long term. These are stocks of small developmental companies. Some may not even have a product on the market. So stay focused on the pattern and your trading strategy.

Always stick to your trading plan and stay disciplined. If a trade goes against you, cut losses quickly. And never hold and hope a loser will turn into a winner.

Let’s get to the top biotech penny stocks list. I’ll show you what’s on my radar and why…

Top Biotech Penny Stocks to Watch

These are the top stocks on my watchlist. ‘Watch’ is the key word here. There’s no guarantee that there’ll be a trading opportunity. Remember, these stocks move FAST.

Before we get to my list of stocks to watch, here are a few of my top resources for penny stocks…

Now, let’s get to the top biotech penny stocks to watch this week…

Biotech Penny Stocks #1: Plus Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: PSTV)

PSTV had its first green day on January 25 with high volume. I don’t see any news on the company, but it’s in a hot sector and traded high volume so it’s worth watching.

It also has a low float of under five million shares which could cause a volatile move. I’ll be watching to see if the stock can break out over the resistance area of around $3.50.

Biotech Penny Stocks #2: VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: VTGN)

VistaGen Therapeutics focuses on developing medicines with the potential to treat anxiety and depression.

On January 25 the stock traded high volume and had a multi-day breakout over $2.64. After the breakout, all the major indices dipped and brought a lot of stocks down with them — this stock was no exception. But it bounced and recovered, so I’ll watch it to continue its upward momentum.

Biotech Penny Stocks #3: Vaxart, Inc. (NASDAQ: VXRT)

VXRT is working on developing oral vaccines for norovirus strains, seasonal flu, and the coronavirus. However, there’s no recent positive news about any of their products.

But the stock still had a big green day on January 25 with high volume. The stock’s a former runner with past big moves so it’s worth watching for continuation.

Biotech Penny Stocks #4: Atossa Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATOS)

On January 25, ATOS announced the company president and CEO would present at the 2021 Precision Medicine World Conference on January 25–27. This could bring investor interest and volume into the stock.

It was up almost 60% on Monday on high volume. It had a breakout over $2 and closed right near its day high of $3. This stock also has a relatively low float of just over seven million shares … It could have a bigger move.

Go for singles since this stock has a history of giving back its gains.

Biotech Penny Stocks #5: iBio, Inc. (NYSE: IBIO)

IBIO gapped up on January 22 on this news. It held its gains on January 22 and has a multi-day breakout level set around $1.85.

I’ll be watching to see if it can break out, but it needs high volume and, ideally, a news catalyst.

Biotech Penny Stocks #6: Cerecor Inc. (NASDAQ: CERC)

CERC has been trading higher than average volume for the month of January. It had four green days in a row after announcing it received more funds than anticipated due to investors exercising warrants.

I’ll be watching to see if the stock will break out above the multi-day resistance level of $3.50.

Biotech Penny Stocks #7: AzurRx BioPharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZRX)

On January 21, AZRX announced it had dosed the first patients in its Phase 2b OPTION 2 extensions study. The study is to test its immediate release capsules to potentially treat exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in patients with cystic fibrosis.

The stock soared that day on high volume but went even higher the following day … On January 22 it went from $1.22 to a high of $2.63 on 173 million shares of volume.

I’m watching this stock to hold up and re-test the high of $2.63.

Biotech Penny Stocks #8: Therapeutic Solutions International, Inc. (OTCPK: TSOI)

TSOI was trading high volume on January 25 after releasing news that administration of its cell therapy in lab tests had shown tumor regression in mice.

I’ll watch the stock to either make new highs or for a morning panic dip buy opportunity.

Biotech Penny Stocks #9: Selecta Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: SELB)

SELB had its first green day and multi-day breakout on January 25. It’s been trading high volume and is in a hot sector.

I’ll be watching the stock for a breakout over the $5 level — but only with high volume. It could be a powerful move out of the channel it’s been trading in since 2018.

Biotech Penny Stocks #10: Synairgen plc (OTCPK: SYGGF)

SYGGF is a biotech company that develops treatments for respiratory diseases. On January 25 it announced this news about its inhaled interferon beta treatment.

The stock had a breakout over $2.50 and made a high of $2.84. I’ll watch for it to make new highs.

Biotech penny stocks are stocks of small, developmental companies. These companies are usually desperate for cash. They need it to continue developing products and for testing and trials. Trade them with caution…

They’re known to be extremely volatile. They can have huge price swings. One minute they’re flying high on positive news — the next they’re down due to bad trial results, side effects, or stock dilution.

If you’re prepared to take advantage of the price swings, these stocks can offer great trading opportunities…
