5 Low Float Stocks to Watch This Week




On Dec. 2, 2019, NantKwest Inc. (NASDAQ: NK) announced promising safety data from their first phase of tumor-targeted cell therapy.

The initial reaction was mixed, but since the news NK's price has grown steadily. The wide-range bar from Friday accompanied by high volume suggests that upward movement should end soon. Prices above Friday’s high at $3.10 are bullish in the short term. But looking back on the weekly-chart, the last three price spikes were subsequently followed by a sharp downside movement. Will history repeat again?


Avalon Globocare


Without any news announcements, Avalon Globocare Corp (NASDAQ: AVCO) began establishing upward momentum on Dec. 10, 2019. On Friday, Dec. 13, 2019,  we saw the first red day with a close below the opening price. During the day, prices found support at the 50% Fibonacci retracement and bounced back to $2.26. Prices above Friday’s high $2.33 are bullish. The next stronger resistance level is at $2.63.



The shares of Calyxt, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLXT) surged on Dec. 3, 2019 by 28.77% with 2.8M shares traded. This was caused by an announcement that Vince Restucci has joined the team as Vice President of Agronomy Services. The resistance around $5.20 - $5.30 held the prices back. Last week the resistance level broke and on Friday a Doji was formed, which is a bearish sign. The old resistance now turned into support and prices may consolidate back to the $5.30 level again. The next resistance is at $7.95.



The global cybersecurity company SecureWorks Corp. (NASDAQ: SCWX) presented their third quarter fiscal results on Dec. 5, 2019. Their revenue increased by 6.2% up to $141.3 million. On Dec. 6, 2019, shares went through September's resistance at $15.11. The volume did not support the attempt to break the resistance sustainably and closed at the resistance. A consolidation was likely from this level. Last week prices consolidated with low volume. On Friday, prices broke the previous day high at $13.05. I’s important to keep the high momentum by breaking Friday’s high at $14.07 and staying above this level.



On Dec. 9, 2019, Sanofi SA (NASDAQ: SNY) announced they will acquire Synthorx, Inc. (NASDAQ: THOR) for $2.5 Billion. The week before the announcement, the stock grew from $18 to $25 within three days. Sanofi will acquire the outstanding shares of Synthorx for $68/share. Since the news is out now, the prices should move in a tight pricing channel. There is no momentum to be expected.
