Top Stocks to Watch Today: Friday, March 19

I could call today’s watchlist ‘NFT stocks to watch today’…

It seems stimulus checks might be finding their way into the market as stocks heat up again. And NFT news is driving a lot of the moves.

Even I couldn’t ignore the action. I traded an NFT stock on today’s watchlist yesterday…

I don’t usually trade higher-priced stocks. But when a trade comes along that matches all my indicators, I’ll try to take advantage of it.

StocksToTrade’s Breaking News Chat alerted me to this stock. That’s how I was able to act fast. Seriously, if you don’t use this tool — get it now!

But NFT stocks aren’t the only hot stocks today … Biotechs, earnings winners, and the gaming stock that just won’t die all made today’s list.

Here’s my list of the top 10 stocks to watch today…

10 Stocks to Watch for Friday, March 19, 2021

Remember, this is a watchlist, not a ‘must trade’ list. I’m not always right, and I don’t trade everything I watch. That’s why you should never blindly follow or buy anyone’s stock picks — even mine.

But there’s always something you can learn.

Watch out for patterns that fit your strategy. Always have a trading plan for every trade. Here are some resources to help you get started:

If you’ve been following my blog and lessons, you know I love to trade low-priced stocks. (To learn more about trading penny stocks, get my FREE guide here.) 

The stocks on this list aren’t penny stocks. Even if I rarely trade higher-priced stocks, their movements can still affect stocks within my price range. So to me, they’re worth watching.

Now, here are 10 top stocks to watch today…

Stocks to Watch Today #1: ZK International Group Co., Ltd. (ZKIN)

On Monday, ZKIN announced it’s entering the non-fungible token (NFT) business through its subsidiary. The stock moved on the news, then consolidated.

Yesterday, the stock gapped up as NFT stocks have become the new hot thing. Watch for momentum based on the overall sector.


Stocks to Watch Today #2: Jiayin Group Inc. (NASDAQ: JFIN)

JFIN operates an online financial marketplace. There’s no recent news on the company but it’s also likely moving on NFT sector momentum.

This volatile stock is trading high volume. Traders can watch for a morning panic since there’s no news catalyst to push it higher.


Stocks to Watch Today #3: Aytu BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ: AYTU)

AYTU is in the hot biotech sector. Yesterday it gapped up and spiked on no news. Then it faded throughout the day.

Traders can watch for a morning panic since there’s no recent news catalyst.


Stocks to Watch Today #4: WISeKey International Holding AG (NASDAQ: WKEY)

WKEY is a cybersecurity and AI company. Yesterday during midday trading, it announced the development of its NFT application.

StocksToTrade Breaking News Chat alerted me to this stock. I bought 1,500 shares at $9.60 and sold at $10.77 for a profit of $1,755.* (See all my trades here.)

I WAY underestimated this stock. It made a high of $15.80 after I sold. But it’s an example of how small gains add up.

This is a low float NFT stock in a hot sector. But be aware of potential volatility halts. Traders can watch for continued upside.

(*Please note: My results are far from typical. Individual results will vary. Most traders lose money. I have the benefit of years of hard work, dedication, and experience. Trading is inherently risky. Do your due diligence and never risk more than you can afford to lose.)


Stocks to Watch Today #5: Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO)

Yesterday SINO announced it’s launching a new NFT exchange platform in July 2021. The company will work with another e-commerce company to develop the platform.

This NFT stock has a low float of fewer than 15 million shares. If the sector stays hot, traders can watch for a potential bounce back to the resistance area around $11.


Stocks to Watch Today #6: Super League Gaming, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLGG)

SLGG is back on today’s watchlist. Yesterday the stock had a multi-day breakout over $9.10 and made a new high of $9.98.

This is another low float stock that could have volatile moves. Traders can watch continued upside if it can break out over yesterday’s high and the round number of $10.


Stocks to Watch Today #7: Takung Art Co., Ltd. (NYSE: TKAT)

TKAT is another NFT stock. This sketchy Chinese art company is moving on rumors it’s entering the NFT space to sell online art. On Wednesday TKAT had a huge move from $5.20 to $24.90. Yesterday it gapped up and made a high of $40.54 before fading off.

The stock was halted midday yesterday due to pending news. The company filed an 8K that stated the company “is not aware of any material, undisclosed corporate developments or material change in its business or affairs that has not been publicly disclosed that would account for the recent increase in the market price or trading volume of its shares.”

See the full 8K here. Traders can watch for a morning panic dip buy opportunity.


Stocks to Watch Today #8: Upstart Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPST)

Upstart connects consumers with banks and loan options through a cloud-based AI platform.

In after-hours trading on Wednesday, the company announced fourth-quarter earnings. It also announced it entered an agreement to acquire another software company. The acquisition will bring the company into the auto loan business.

The stock soared from the $60s to almost $90 per share in about 20 minutes. Yesterday the stock opened at $83.54 and made a new all-time high of $124.75.

The stock closed near its highs. Traders can watch for continued upside.


Stocks to Watch Today #9: Vericel Corporation (NASDAQ: VCEL)

VCEL is another hot stock in the biotech sector.

On Wednesday it announced it will join the S&P SmallCap 600 index effective on March 22. Yesterday the stock had a huge gap up and made new multi-year highs.

Traders can watch for continued upside.


Stocks to Watch Today #10: Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI)

VUZI announced on Wednesday that it received an order for 400,000 of its smart glasses. And yesterday it announced that a major manufacturer started using its glasses in its distribution center. Read the full press release here.

Traders can watch for a multi-day breakout over yesterday’s high of $26.26.

Frequently Asked Questions About Stocks to Watch Today

What Are the Best Stocks to Trade as a Beginner?

My favorite stocks to trade are penny stocks. I think they’re a great way for beginners to learn the trading process with a small account.

Can You Get Rich Trading Stocks?

Don’t come into trading with a get-rich-quick mindset. Trading is a marathon, not a sprint. It can be a lucrative career but it takes years of hard work and dedication to learn the nuances of the market — which is what I teach.

How Much Money Do You Need To Start Trading Stocks?

Only start trading with money you can afford to lose. You can start small. In fact, I teach traders to focus on education first to learn the process, then slowly scale up over time.

Is Trading Stocks Risky?

All trading is risky. No trader is right 100% of the time. That’s why I keep my losses small by cutting losses quickly.
