You see, penny stocks typically have low trading volumes. This increases your risk because it is hard to get into and out of a stock quickly. If a stock tanks 30% in one day, you may have a hard time finding a buyer. That also makes penny stocks much more volatile than stocks with higher market capitalizations.
The pharmaceutical stock we are recommending today trades for just under $13, above the typical $5 penny stock threshold. It is still a small-cap stock (market cap under $2 billion), giving it a lot of room for large price gains.
This stock is also more liquid than some of the stocks listed above, with an average trading volume of nearly 700,000 shares a day. The highest-priced stock above, CRME, only has an average trading volume of 62,127 shares per day.
