The rebound is real. E-House (China) Holdings Limited (ADR) (NYSE:EJ) is raising its guidance for the entire year, targeting 36% growth to $600 million this year.
E-House (China) Holdings Limited (ADR) (NYSE:EJ) was a rock star a few years ago, but it’s been meandering in the single digits for more than two years. Concerns about China’s real estate bubble and the country’s slowing economy cooled down the stock, but the financials suggest that E-House is heating up again.
Organovo Holdings Inc (NYSEMKT:ONVO) — $5.87
I’m willing to take risks in this column — as all investors who try to swing from the fences with low-priced stocks accept — but this one is extremely speculative.
Organovo Holdings Inc (NYSEMKT:ONVO) has a lofty goal of using bioprinting to generate human tissue in a lab that can be used for culture plates or bioreactors to speed up medical research.
How far Organovo Holdings Inc (NYSEMKT:ONVO) is from making that dream a reality is a guess at this point. If it becomes possible in the mainstream market, there are no guarantees that Organovo will be a big player. However, investor interest in 3-D printing — and that is what this is when you think about it — is making an already-risky company even more volatile.
It will be feast or famine with Organovo, making this a high risk in exchange for high return pick.
YuMe Inc (NYSE:YUME) — $8.95
Broken IPOs intrigue me.
YuMe Inc (NYSE:YUME) went public at $9 two weeks ago, and it closed last week slightly below that.
YuMe Inc (NYSE:YUME) is a leading provider of digital video brand advertising solutions. This would seem to be a strong niche given the popularity of online video, but the market has ignored the video marketing IPOs this year.
YuMe is certainly growing. Revenue climbed 70% last year, and it managed to turn a small profit. Growth, earnings, and reaching a global audience of 257 million unique monthly visitors aren’t enough to impress the market these days, but YuMe’s the real deal.
Five for the road
These five stocks aren’t trading in the single digits by accident. If I’m right about the catalysts, though, they may not be trading in the single digits for too much longer.
