3 Penny Stocks to Watch in 2014: Cell Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: CTIC), Chelsea Therapeutics International Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHTP), Hemispherix Biopharma Inc. (NYSE: HEB)

The biotech boom that began last year has triggered triple-digit gains in some of the market’s best penny stocks.

And some of our top penny stocks in biotech that we recommended last year gained as much as 440%, 231%, and 214%.

Better yet, the biotech sector is expected to keep surging — especially the sector’s best low-priced buys.

Keep in mind, investing in penny stocks isn’t for everyone, as they operate differently than the typical stock.

However, there are plenty of legitimate and lucrative penny stocks, if you know how to invest. The key is finding the promising ones and steering clear of the rest.  (more)

Please take a look at the 1-year chart of OUTR (Outerwall, Inc.) below with my added notations:
1-year chart of OUTR (Outerwall, Inc.)
This stock is very simple. OUTR had held a very important level of support at $65 (blue) for the last 3 months, which was also a previous resistance. Regardless of what the market has or has not down over the last few months though, the stock had never broken the $65 level. Well, this past Friday OUTR broke below the $65 support and should be moving overall lower from here.

The Tale of the Tape: OUTR had a key level of support at $65. Now that the stock has broken support, a trader might want to enter a short trade at or near the $65 level with a stop placed above that level. A break back above $65 would negate the forecast for a move lower.

3 Income Plays for Mexico’s Energy Boom: Diamond Offshore Drilling (NYSE: DO), Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK), Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE: ETP)

Last week in Income & Prosperity, I presented a thesis for investing in Mexico’s energy market.

My thesis was predicated on the fact you CAN invest in Mexico’s energy market, which for 75 years was closed to foreigners.

Details regarding the Mexican energy reform still need to be hashed out, such as which regions will be available for development and how the contract and licensing procedures will work.

Nevertheless, it’s possible to intelligently game where foreign business will first arise and which U.S. energy companies stand to benefit.  (more)
