The stocks

On October 10, 2018, the company said its Reducer medical device was granted FDA breakthrough device designation.

2. Pacific Ethaonal (PEIX)

Shares rallied more than 30 percent over the last month heading into news President Trump announce the US will have E15 fuel on a year-round basis.

3. CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP)

The stock fell more than 30 percent since May 30, 2018 following news of a clinical hold for the company’s CTX001. On October 10, 2018, CRISPR and its partner in the venture, Vertex Pharma (VRTX), announced the release of the clinical hold by the FDA.

4. AcelRx Pharma (ACRX)

The company announced a group of FDA staff members determined the company’s Dsuvia offered “no apparent advantage over currently available therapies.” While the stock fell more than 50 percent pre market on October 10, 2018 when the news was announced, shares closed that day up about 26 percent. An analyst from Ladenburg Thalmann reiterated a Buy rating and $10 price target on AcelRx following the FDA news.

Disclaimer

As state above, these stocks are not stock picks and are not recommendations to buy or sell a stock.

Rather, these ideas should be viewed as potential opportunities for elevated levels of volatility and trader interest and thus increased liquidity. These stocks can be opportunities for traders who already have an existing strategy to play sub-$5 stocks.

Penny stocks can be extremely dangerous for a number of reasons, including the major swings in percent a small dollar/cent move can create, decreased liquidity when interest fades and decreased transparency into operations.

Penny-stock trading is not for beginners. Benzinga does not recommend trading or investing in low-priced stocks if you haven’t had at least a couple years of experience in the stock market.
