Neptune Wellness (Nasdaq: NEPT)

Neptune Wellness (Nasdaq: NEPT) has been popular with investors in recent months. On June 1, it was trading at $4.14. At market close on July 17, the stock was well above the $5 mark. By the end of the 2019 H1, Neptune Wellness (Nasdaq: NEPT) had already soared by 71%.

The rise in the value of the company’s shares can be attributed to its phenomenal success so far. On June 7, the company announced that it had signed a three-year deal with Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) to provide extraction and related services for at least 120,000 kilograms total of cannabis and hemp biomass.

Same month, Neptune signed its largest extraction deal ever, the “largest cannabis extraction deal publicly announced to date in Canada”: a three-year agreement with The Green Organic Dutchman for processing a minimum of 230,000 kilos of cannabis and hemp biomass. 

J.C. Penny (NYSE: JCP)

For this July and beyond, J.C. Penny is a stock you should include in your watch list. The stock just  saw a reversal after a recent drawdown, with its price moving up to as high as $1.25 in June from a two-month low of $0.85. The major factor responsible for this was the purchase of its shares by members of the board. 

Also, the company has been going through some major restructuring. It has been streamlining its processes and closing down underperforming businesses to cut costs. 

©TradingView. July 19, 2019.J.C Penny recently made a list of stocks that fell from grace. However, being currently traded at an all-time low, this might be a good time to profit from its intraday movement at a low price.
