Here are the top 10 stocks to watch today … I’ll show you what’s on my radar and why.

10 Stocks to Watch for Thursday, May 27, 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.)

Now, here are 10 top stocks to watch today…

Stocks to Watch Today #1: PDS Biotechnology Corporation (NASDAQ: PDSB)

PDSB is a biotech company that develops cancer immunotherapies.

It returns to the watchlist for the third time. It’s holding near its highs after announcing that Julius Strauss, MD from the National Cancer Institute would present Phase 2 trial data at the upcoming American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) conference.

It was on watch for a first red day and a dip-buy opportunity. But it held up well. On Tuesday it filed this Form 8-K, and it broke out to new 52-week highs yesterday. Volume is fading so I wouldn’t chase. Traders can watch for a dip-buy opportunity.


Stocks to Watch Today #2: Moxian, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC)

MOXC is a Chinese tech company. This stock just won’t die.

It’s been on my watchlist for a panic dip-buy opportunity for weeks. And it keeps going higher.

On Tuesday it had a giant short squeeze to the upside. It’s still on watch for a dip-buy opportunity into any big intraday panic.


Stocks to Watch Today #3: Rain Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: RAIN)

RAIN is a biotech company focused on developing therapies for oncology.

On Tuesday it announced first-quarter financials. It also reported a change in beneficial ownership of stock in this SEC filing.

The stock had a gap up following the news. Traders can watch for a multi-day breakout over $20.88.

RCON provides tech solutions to the oil and gas industry in China.

On Tuesday the company announced its subsidiary, Future Gas Station Technology Company Limited (FGS), signed a partnership with two other companies. The agreement will “further promote Ping An’s business expansion plans and the Program in PetroChina’s gas stations in Zhejiang, China.

Read the full press release here.

The stock broke out to new all-time highs following the news. It has a low float of fewer than four million shares. Traders can watch for it to potentially continue higher.


Stocks to Watch Today #5: Cricut, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRCT)

CRCT is in the tech sector. It develops and sells home-crafting supplies.

There’s no recent news since the company announced first-quarter financial results in after-hours on May 13. The stock has been uptrending since.

Yesterday it broke out to new all-time highs. It’s another stock traders can watch for it to potentially continue higher.


Stocks to Watch Today #6: TrueCar, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE)

TrueCar is a tech company that operates a platform for consumers to compare the prices of vehicles. Then it connects them with nearby dealerships.

On Tuesday the company released its vehicle sales forecast for May.

“TrueCar expects U.S. retail deliveries of new cars and light trucks to be 1,379,623 units, an increase of 35% from a year ago and an increase of 2% from April 2021, when adjusted for the same number of selling days.”

Stocks to Watch Today #7: Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF)

ANF is a consumer cyclical stock that offers retail apparel. Yesterday it announced first-quarter financial results.

The stock has been in a strong uptrend for most of the year. It had a huge gap up after earnings and briefly broke out to new 52-week highs. Traders can watch for it to retest the new multi-year highs of $43.90.


Stocks to Watch Today #8: AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AMC)

Yep, the meme stocks are at it again … They all started running again this week, and the short squeeze is on.

AMC made the daily watchlist I send out to subscribers yesterday. It presented some good trading opportunities for longs. If the stock can get over $20 it could have an even bigger squeeze. But if it rejects, it could tank fast. Watch for a potential dip buy into a big panic.

(Past performance is not indicative of future results.) 


Stocks to Watch Today #9: Aptevo Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: APVO)

APVO is another biotech stock. It develops immunotherapies for cancer.

Yesterday the company announced positive data from Phase 1 clinical trials of its potential leukemia treatment.

Read the press release here.

The stock gapped up but couldn’t hold its gains. It’s a former runner with a low float. And it’s in the hot biotech sector. Lots of reasons to watch this one. But it likely needs to get over resistance at $30 with more volume to have a big upside move.


Stocks to Watch Today #10: Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE: OMI)

OMI is a medical supply company in the healthcare sector.

Yesterday it announced its long-term strategy for company growth. And it held an investor day via live webcast to discuss its plans.

The stock gapped up and had a morning spike on high volume. And it broke out to new all-time highs. It could be getting overextended. I wouldn’t chase. Traders can watch for a potential dip buy.

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.
