3. Acceler8 Technology (AXK)

Company Profile: Acceler8 Technology develops materials and instrumentation for applications in medical instrumentation, basic research, drug discovery and bio-detection.

The stock surged in the absence of any headlines in January, prompting an inquiry from the NYSE for the unusual volume activity. Acceler8 shares again spiked in February after the company said an evaluation agreement with Novartis (NVS) was extended to June 30. Novartis will pay the company a monthly fee for an exclusive right extension that runs through April 13.

Current Share Price: $3.70 (March 29)

First Quarter Total Return: 273%

Analyst Ratings: No Wall Street firm covers Acceler8 Technology. TheStreet Ratings has a "hold" rating on Acceler8's stock, arguing that the company's "robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity" are counterbalanced by the company's "poor" profit margins.






2. Evergreen Energy (EEE)

Company Profile: Evergreen Energy is a so-called cleaner coal company.

On Jan. 5, Evergreen was granted an extension by the NYSE Arca to regain compliance with listing rules regarding minimum bid price and market value of publicly traded shares. By March 3, Evergreen regained compliance with the listing standards.

The stock hit a 52-week high shortly after the company completed a $16 million private placement of common stock. Shares pulled back, though, after Evergreen posted financial results for 2010. Revenue for the year fell to $403,000 from $423,000 in 2009.

Current Share Price: $2.66 (March 29)

First Quarter Total Return: 309%

Analyst Ratings: No research firm has coverage of Evergreen Energy. In addition, TheStreet Ratings doesn't follow the stock.
