Three Small Cap Stocks We Have Been Looking At
As we kick off our December to Remember, we wanted to take a moment and Remember some of the big plays we have out there right now that are still poised for further success.
Cara Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARA)
This is a stock we put on your radar back in July. So far, we have seen more than 105% in upside on the pick, and we’re actually looking for more here as the stock continues to show us some constructive action.
The company just announced that it has completed patient enrollment for the multi-dose phase of its adaptive Phase 2/3 trial of I.V. CR845 in dialysis patients suffering from moderate-to-severe uremic pruritus (UP). UP is an intractable systemic itch condition in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), for which there are no approved therapies in the United States.
This is an exciting play that continues to pair technical strength with fundamental promise.
Amyris, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRS)
AMRS is another hot biotech we alerted in the past (back in June). The stock has roughly tripled since we put it in front of you. We are currently seeing a little bit of a pullback and it might be worthwhile to keep this one in front of you here.
This company just came to the market with the announcement that it has executed with its long-time partner Kuraray Co., LTD (TYO:3405) a multi-year extension to their collaboration agreement for the use of Amyris’s Biofene® branded ß-Farnesene in liquid farnesene rubber (“LFR”) and farnesene-based elastomer applications. This collaboration, which originally began in 2011, features increased farnesene supply to Kuraray and joint marketing of products to industry and end-customers.
The stock is consolidating recent action in what appears to be a bullish symmetric triangle and we would watch for another breakout over the near term.
W&T Offshore, Inc. (NYSE:WTI)
WTI is an energy play we put in front of you at $1.58. We have seen as much as 30% added to shares in the meantime and have a clear bull flag setting up on the charts right now.
The big issue here is the booming price of oil after last week’s OPEC deal to cut 1.2 million barrels of oil production per day by member exporters. The big key is that OPEC managed to get non-OPEC cooperation in the cut. This has boosted the price of oil and makes capital management much easier for companies like WTI.
We look for this stock to continue to provide opportunities on the upside.
