5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar

 DELAFIELD, Wis. (Stockpickr) -- There isn't a day that goes by on Wall Street when certain stocks trading for $10 a share or less don't experience massive spikes higher. Traders savvy enough to follow the low-priced names and trade them with discipline and sound risk management are banking ridiculous coin on a regular basis.

>>5 Stocks With Big Insider Buying

Just take a look at some of the big movers in the under-$10 complex from Thursday, including Cesca Therapeutics (KOOL), which is exploding higher by 27%; Ibio (IBIO), which is ripping to the upside by 17%; Synergy Pharmaceuticals (SGYP), which is trending higher by 14%; and Magellan Petroleum (MPET), which is jumping higher by 14%. You don't even have to catch the entire move in lower-priced stocks such as these to make outsized returns when trading.

One low-priced stock that recently exploded higher was branded fashions apparel retailer American Apparel (APP), which I highlighted in April 3's "5 Stocks Under $10 Set to Soar" at around 50 cents per share. I mentioned in that piece that shares of American Apparel had been downtrending badly for the last three months, with shares falling from its high of $1.45 to its recent low of 46 cents per share. That action, along with a recent gap down from 80 cents to 46 cents, had pushed shares of APP into oversold territory. Shares of APP were starting to set up for a monster oversold bounce if it could manage to take out some key near-term overhead resistance at 54 cents per share with high volume.

>>5 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings

Guess what happened? Shares of American Apparel triggered that move with conviction earlier this week after the stock took out 54 cents per share with monster upside volume. The upside volume on Tuesday and Wednesday registered 7.4 and 14.3 million shares, which is well above its three-month average action of 2.13 million shares. Shares of APP have continued to explode higher since, taking out 54 cents per share, with the stock tagging an intraday high today of 76 cents per share. That represents a monster gain of over 50% for anyone who bought up APP below 50 cents in anticipation of that move.

This stock continues to act and look bullish from a technical perspective, and it's very possible that it's going to continue its uptrend and tag $1 a share very soon.

>>A Small-Cap Stock With Very Big Potential

Low-priced stocks are something that I tweet about on a regular basis. I frequently flag high-probability setups, breakout candidates and low-priced stocks that are acting technically bullish. I like to hunt for low-priced stocks that are showing bullish price and volume trends, since that increases the probability of those stocks heading higher. These setups often produce monster moves higher in very short time frames.

When I trade under-$10 names, I do it almost entirely based off of the charts and technical analysis. I also like to find under-$10 names with a catalyst, but that's secondary to the chart and volume patterns.

With that in mind, here's a look at several under-$10 stocks that look poised to potentially trade higher from current levels.
