Top Stocks to Watch Today: Thursday, April 22

Many of the stocks to watch today are moving on recent SEC filings. 

Do you know how to read these sometimes complicated forms?

If you don’t, get my “Read SEC Filings” DVD now. I made it with my first millionaire student Michael Goode.*

It’s a must-watch, especially if you trade higher-priced listed stocks.

Listed stocks are required to file forms with the SEC when there’s a change that affects a company’s business or stock. And it’s not just about good news…

Companies also have to report negative news and things like offerings and dilution that can push the stock price down. That’s why learning how to read them is a must.

10 Stocks to Watch for Thursday, April 22, 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: Mogo Inc. (NASDAQ: MOGO)

On April 16 MOGO reported that it closed its previously announced investment in Coinsquare.

Coinsquare is “Canada’s leading digital asset trading platform.” And MOGO now has a 19.99% ownership interest in the company and the right to increase its ownership up to 43%.

Read the full Form 6-K here.

The stock was downtrending until yesterday. It’s typical of the informational inefficiencies I see in penny stocks. And it’s why I don’t try to predict how a stock will react to news. I wait for a reaction, then plan a trade if I see my setup.

Traders can watch for continued upside.


Stocks to Watch Today #2: MacroGenics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGNX)

MGNX is a biotech company working to develop therapies to treat cancer. On April 15 the company announced it will collaborate with another company to develop novel immunotherapy.

The stock traded lower than average volume yesterday, but it’s still holding near its recent highs. Traders can watch for a breakout over yesterday’s high of $34.29. Ideally, we’ll see more volume.


Stocks to Watch Today #3: Golden Matrix Group, Inc. (OTCPK: GMGI)

GMGI is a tech company that develops online gaming platforms for its customers.

There’s no recent news on the company since April 7. That’s when the company announced it “launched its first custom-built online sportsbook platform with an established online gaming operator in a new and significant geographic sports gaming market.”

Read the full press release here.

On Tuesday the stock had a multi-month breakout over roughly $7.80. Yesterday the stock continued higher but it was choppy and struggling to hold its highs.

Traders can watch for a morning panic dip buy opportunity. The stock trades low volume. Keep that in mind when determining your position size if you decide to trade this stock.


Stocks to Watch Today #4: inTEST Corporation (NYSE: INTT)

INTT is a tech company. On April 13 the company filed a Form 8-K reporting that it amended its property lease agreement. The company surrendered space, which will save the company money.

On April 14 INTT filed another Form 8-K. It reported that it amended its loan and security agreement, increasing the company revolving credit by $2.5 million.

The stock was falling from its recent high of $12.61. But yesterday it gapped up on higher than average volume. It closed near its highs. Traders can watch for a continued short squeeze to the upside.


Stocks to Watch Today #5: Ocugen, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCGN)

OCGN is another biotech company. It’s developing a COVID-19 vaccine with a partner company.

Yesterday OCGN announced interim data from its Phase 3 study shows “COVAXIN demonstrated a vaccine efficacy in mild, moderate, and severe COVID-19 disease of 78% with efficacy against severe COVID-19 disease alone of 100%.”

Read the full press release here.

The stock gapped up following the news on high volume. It faded in the morning before coming back to close near its opening price.

The stock’s a former runner but likely has a lot of bagholders selling into spikes. It looks to have found support around $5.80. Traders can watch for a potential bounce but swing for singles.


Stocks to Watch Today #6: Reconnaissance Energy Africa Ltd. (OTCQX: RECAF)

RECAF was on Tuesday’s watchlist. The stock is running on news of preliminary data from its well-drilling program. And its announcement that it entered into a letter of intent to acquire Renaissance Oil.

It was on watch for a morning panic dip buy opportunity. The stock panicked and I bought the dip. (Past performance is not indicative of future returns.)  

I bought 5,000 shares at $5.66 and sold them all at $5.77. I made a small profit of $550.* I underestimated the bounce, but I was happy to take a single when the overall markets were tanking.

I’ll keep watching the stock for dip-buying opportunities into big panics.

Stocks to Watch Today #7: Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC)

MOXC operates a social media platform that connects online customers with physical businesses.

There’s no recent news on the company but it’s being pumped as a reopening play, as more businesses reopen, and as a crypto play since it offers businesses online advertising.

It has a relatively low float of fewer than 10 million shares. It has the potential for volatile moves but it already had three green days in a row. I wouldn’t chase it. Traders can watch for dip-buy opportunities.


Stocks to Watch Today #8: Crossroads Systems, Inc. (OTCQX: CRSS)

CRSS is another stock returning from Tuesday’s watchlist. It’s been on an insane run, going from roughly $13 to $58.30 in six days. All while trading low volume. There’s no recent news on the company. It could be a pump or a giant short squeeze.

Traders can watch for a dip-buy opportunity into a big panic. But again, be careful to not take a big position size with this one due to its low volume.


Stocks to Watch Today #9: Energy Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERII)

ERII manufactures and sells energy recovery devices for the water, and oil & gas industries.

Yesterday the stock gapped up and traded higher than average volume on no news. It had a technical breakout over $20.25. It’s not a very volatile stock but it’s worth watching for continuation.


Stocks to Watch Today #10: Tiptree Inc. (NASDAQ: TIPT)

On Tuesday a subsidiary of TIPT announced “certain preliminary estimated unaudited interim consolidated financial statements” for the three months ending March 31, 2021.

Read the full Form 8-K here.

The Form 8-K also comes with this warning: “The preliminary financial information above is unaudited and there can be no assurance that it will not vary from Fortegra’s actual financial results as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2021.”

The stock had two big green days with high volume following the news. I wouldn’t chase it. Traders can watch for dip-buy opportunities, ideally into a big panic.

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.
