The Play Of The Day

Today's Play of The Day is: Harris & Harris Group (NASDAQ:HHGP)

Harris & Harris Group Inc., (NASDAQ:HHGP) which invests in start-up companies that are filing for patents on new technologies, is undervalued based on its stakes in companies it may take public soon, Business Week reported in its ``Inside Wall Street'' column. H&H owns an interest in 14 companies, four of which are publicly traded, and NeuroMetrix and Genomica could sell shares to the public this year. One investor valued those companies at $450 million total and said H&H shares are worth 20, Business Week said.

Stock Fans, the preceding was indeed profiled in the latest edition of Business Week. This stock is one that we have been saying since it held $11.00 on moderate volume in any kind of NASDAQ market. Last week the NASDAQ swung more then 300 points. However (NASDAQ:HHGP) traded in a range of less then 1 point last week. We have said that this stock could be the next (NASDAQ:ICGE), as it invests in such type start up companies.

(NASDAQ:HHGP) has an advantage over many stocks? It keeps its value in any kind of market in that a vast majority of its holdings are non publicly traded companies. We liked this stock a lot last week because it offers what we look for when we pick stocks. It has low risk and a potential for extremely lucrative gains. (NASDAQ:HHGP) has a definite shortage of shares. If demand gets high, and we are betting that it does this stock with less then 11 million shares outstanding total, and less then 2 mill in the publicly traded float can really take off.

We are going to follow the lead that Business Week has provided as we will be looking for this stock to make its way to $20.00 plus over the next 1-5 days. It could easily tack on that number today. We are extremely pleased that investors are starting to see as we did the value of this potentially extremely HOT! stock.

The stock is trading up today in pre-market. We will look to get in with 30% of our total position right on the open. Then we will wait for it to fall back fill in its trading range of roughly $14.00 and then run from there.

(NASDAQ:XYBR) - The stock came back yesterday, and closed at its high of the day. The volume was massive into the close on this stock. Remember it has a 28.00 price target on it. We still think that IBM could come in and buy this stock for a very lucrative figure. It has averaged over 1 million shares for more then 10 days now. It defiantly has interest in it. The fact that the wearable PC is all its own it could just be sitting on a gold mine. Imagine if the wearable PC is even 5% what the wireless phone market is. With only (NASDAQ:XYBR) making the wearable PC the amounts of money it could make are insane. Come on Stock Fans, How many of you at less then 6,000 would like to be the first one on your block with a wearable PC? I bet quite a few of you. The prices on this new technology have come down form 20,000 to that 6,000 price point in just 3 years. If the wearable PC price point can drop under 4,000 over next 12 months. (NASDAQ:XYBR's value in selling them could be north of 70 in (NASDAQ:XYBR) stock.

We will be watching XYBR today to see if it can make $15.8750. If it can, Its all time high is $16.43750. It hit that area in mid January of 2000. It could explode to over $20.00 if it clears $17.00. We will be watching closely today!

(NASDAQ:SBAS)- The stock had news with the likes of MSFT yesterday. That gave it a solid spike. However it has been building for a while ahead of that MSFT news. It traded more then 1.4 million shares in a range of $13.75-$14.1250 yesterday. This stock if it can break $14.6250 should run up to more then $17.00 plus!
