Shares dropped over 50% from the premarket on July 30th to the premarket of July 31st following news of a common stock offering of 2.875 million shares at $0.80 per share. The offering at $0.80 shows what people are willing to pay for the stock, and it forced the price to fall under a dollar to where it currently is.

Workhorse Group (WKHS)

Valeritas Holdings (VLRX)

On July 10th the stocked opened for trade at $4.13, an increase of $1.19 from the close the day before, with 12 times more volume than the average. The leading cause for the price spike was the that the company’s V-Go wearable insulin device was adopted to multiple managed care formularies.

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.
