3 Stocks Under $5 Making Big Moves


RadioShack (RSH) is engaged in the retail sale of consumer electronics goods and services through its RadioShack store chain. This stock is trading up 4.7% to $2.42 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $2.30-$2.47

52-Week Range: $1.90-$10.34

Volume: 1.98 million

Three-Month Average Volume: 2.45 million

From a technical perspective, RSH is spiking higher here right above some near-term support at $2.20 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing the stock within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if RSH manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.43 to $2.46 and then once it clears more resistance at $2.71 with high volume. At last check, RSH has hit an intraday high of $2.47 and volume is tracking in a bit below its three-month average action of 2.45 million shares.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in RSH as long as it's trending above $2.20, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 2.45 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then RSH will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.90 to $3.10. Any move above $3.10 will then put its 200-day moving average at $3.21 into focus for shares of RSH.

China Hydroelectric

China Hydroelectric's (CHC) job is to identify and evaluate acquisition opportunities and acquire, operate and, in some cases, complete construction of small hydropower plants in China. This stock is trading up 7.2% to $1.74 in recent trading.

Today's Range: $1.60-$1.80

52-Week Range: $0.62-$2.84

Volume: 363,000

Three-Month Average Volume: 111,105

From a technical perspective, CHC is ripping higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $1.74 with above-average volume. This move is also pushing the stock into breakout territory, since CHC has cleared some near-term overhead resistance at $1.75. Shares of CHC are now quickly moving within range of triggering another major breakout trade. That trade will hit if CHC manages to take out some past overhead resistance at $2.16 with high volume.
