Watch These 3 High-Risk Stocks

Chris Lau, Kapitall: These high-risk stocks have made big moves. Is it time for you to make a move?

High-risk stocks — stocks that make abrupt moves — are worth watching closely. They are good starting point for investors looking to play with stocks. Investors could even find some of the stocks to be undervalued. In that case, they do not become trades, but investments.

Energy Recovery, Inc. (ERII) rose 33% last week. The company makes desalination solutions, but is now selling its solutions to the oil and gas sector. Investors grew bullish in Energy Recovery after the firm reported quarterly revenues of $23.2 million, nearly double from last year. Profit soared to $14.5 million, up from $6.5 million thanks to costs staying the same year over year.



Sangamo BioSciences Inc. (SGMO) rallied 24.6% last week after the biotech firm reported results from its HIV therapy. The firm uses gene therapy to insert corrective genes into patients. On March 5, Sangamo BioSciences said it can take T-cells from patients, modify them, and cause resistance to HIV infection. Gilead (GILD) is firm that should watch Sangamo closely. Gilead makes antiretroviral drugs used to treat HIV.

In the mobile applications segment, Sky-mobi Limited (MOBI) soared as investors recognized the firm’s 110 million user base and nearly 400,000 daily subscriber growth. Ski-mobi reported lower quarterly revenues in the third quarter. Smartphone revenue, which grew 65.8% to $10.7 million, was not enough to offset the total revenue decline. Gross margin was steady at 23.6%, compared to 23.3% the previous quarter. This is much lower than the 34.4% gross margin in the previous year.
