Would you like some shares in a company that makes flying cars? How about medical marijuana? Today we'll take a quick look at four extremely interesting stocks trading at well under $1 per share.
I have three criteria that even an extremely low-priced stock must meet before I'll even consider a buy. I normally invest only in healthcare stocks, since my background is in medicine.
1. The company must have been in existence five years or more.
2. There must be an actual product being made.
3. Recent stock prices must be on an upward trend, no matter how tiny the increases.
These four, out of many, have caught my attention today:

Alseres Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCPK:ALSE) was founded in 1992 and focuses on drugs that act on the central nervous system. Its flagship product is Altropane, an imaging agent used in diagnosing Parkinson's disease and dementia. Alseres is listed as a sponsor for four clinical trials at clinicaltrials.gov.
Bioheart, Inc. (OTCPK:BHRT) was started in 1999 and is focused on the development of effective cell technologies to treat cardiovascular diseases. Bioheart is listed as a sponsor on four clinical trials of its MyoCell and MyoCath products.

Moller International (OTCPK:MLER) is the only non-healthcare stock on this short list. Moller has been in the process of building the M400X Skycar for many years.
