While MARA's share price gains are impressive, it's still a risky play. The hype surrounding Bitcoin is spilling into the stock market, with investors looking to make Bitcoin-like returns at a thousandth of the price of Bitcoin. Today's volume for MARA shares are more than 21.5 times greater than average volume. Meaning shares of MARA are riskier than a traditional stock.
You see, most penny stocks are speculative investments, which can have huge price swings in a short amount of time. In this case, over the last three years, MARA's share price was as high as $30 in January 2015 and as low as $0.64 in June 2017, before climbing up to $6.51.
