Stem Cell Company Stocks 8/23/09

The Dow is currently at 9500 and everything is moving higher except the stem cell stocks. Even star performers like GERN are CYTX have turned south. This sector is in major need of a catalyst.

Top Stem Cell Stock Performer(s) the Last Two Weeks:

- MultiCell Technologies (MCET.OB) = Up 233%; This one spiked on a patent approval. Most traders know this stock has a very tight float and typically makes big moves when it does move. The gains never hold, so don't jump in late.

Worst Stem Cell Stock Performer(s) the Last Two Weeks:

- Bioheart Inc. (BHRT.OB) = Down -27%; The stock dropped for no particular reason and it's currently sitting around its 52 week low. This is potentially a good bounce play, but be careful with the low volume.
