This comes from our MicroMarvel series of articles highlighting undercovered stocks with less than a billion dollars in Market Capitalization. These articles are not intended to be buy recommendations. They highlight stocks that may have limited trading volume and may be highly volatile, so if you do decide to add them to your portfolio I highly recommend you use stop losses and limit orders.

  • 100% technical buy signals. 
  • 15 new highs and up 43.21% in the last month. 
  • 74.87+ Weighted Alpha

Today's MicroMarvel is the biotechnology company Coya Therapeutics (COYA). I found the stock by using Barchart's screening functions to find stocks with the highest technical buy signals, highest Weighted Alpha, superior current momentum, and having a Trend Seeker buy signal, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Seeker signaled a buy on 2/13 the stock gained 28.89%.
