Our list of the 10 top penny stocks to watch this week included a 288% gainer, which shows you the power of owning penny stocks.
You see, penny stocks are perfect for investors looking for quick, strong returns without the expensive initial investments that come with larger stocks or options.
Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK), this week's top earner, is a perfect example. Last Friday (May 11), Blink stock surged after the company announced a partnership with the city of Miami, Fla., to install its electric vehicle-charging ports in city garages.
Blink's Miami deal came on the heels of a deal with Whole Foods Inc. earlier this month to install similar chargers in store parking lots. Blink's surge shows just how lucrative a small company's stock can be once it signs a major partnership agreement.
