Hot Heal Care Companies To Buy For 2014

 On Monday, I met with David Demers, the founder and CEO of the world's largest manufacturer of natural gas engine technology, Westport Innovations (WPRT).   I spent the day at the company's headquarters in Vancouver. We talked for over an hour about the "crazy" idea I wrote about a couple weeks ago…   "Most people don't get it," Demers told me. "Natural gas as a transportation fuel is here to stay."   As longtime readers know, we began publishing reports on this idea in early 2011… To recap, America's glut of natural gas has caused prices to collapse to near-historic lows. As a result, it's now significantly cheaper to run heavy-duty trucks on liquefied natural gas – "LNG," for short. The U.S. is now developing the infrastructure required to support a booming natural-gas-fueled vehicle market.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Roberto Pedone]

    Another under-$10 electronic component player that’s starting to move within range of triggering a big breakout trade is Hutchinson Technology (HTCH), which is a technology manufacturer that creates value by developing solutions to critical customer problems. This stock has been on fire during 2013, with shares up a whopping 75%.

    If you take a look at the chart for Hutchinson Technology, you’ll notice that this stock has been finding significant buying interest over the last two months, whenever it has pulled back to around $3.30 to $3.20 a share. This pattern could be signaling that shares of HTCH are forming a major bottoming chart pattern if those levels can hold as support. Shares of HTCH are now starting to flirt with its 50-day moving average at $3.56 a share. That move is starting to push the stock within range of triggering a big breakout trade above a key downtrend line.

    Market players should now look for long-biased trades in HTCH if it manages to break out above its 200-day moving average of $3.65 a share and then once it clears more overhead resistance levels at $3.89 to $4.13 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that registers near or above its three-month average volume of 392,134 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then HTCH will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $4.75 to $5.50 a share, or even $6 a share.

    Traders can look to buy HTCH off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support levels at $3.37 or at $3.17 a share. One can also buy HTCH off strength once it clears those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

I should mention that I have written about Gogo Inc in the past (Small Cap Gogo Inc (GOGO): Is There Turbulence Ahead? IRDM and Is In-flight WiFi Stock Gogo, Inc. (GOGO) the Next Iridium?) and Cramer also touched on some of the differences between the in-flight wifi service offerings of both.

    Fool Rick Munarriz wrote about four video game stocks to watch this past December. While two of these companies, Activision (NASDAQ: ATVI  ) and Take-Two Interactive Software (NASDAQ: TTWO  ) , are priced notably higher than when that article was published, detractors note that the burst in stock prices means very little in the long run.

  • [By Brandy Betz]

    Shares of Activision Blizzard  (NASDAQ: ATVI  )  have risen over 13% in the past week following positive fourth-quarter and full-year reports. The company is fresh off the launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts, which became the second best-selling game of the year behind Take-Two’s  (NASDAQ: TTWO  )  Grand Theft Auto V. The shares of Take-Two and Electronic Arts  (NASDAQ: EA  )  fell after these companies’ recent earnings reports as investors decide what to do with gaming companies now that the next-gen consoles have launched. How did Activision avoid a similar fate?
