Penny stocks have been on an absolute tear.
Just look at Seven Stars Cloud Group Inc. (NASDAQ: SSC).
On Friday (August 24), Seven Stars announced a $24 billion deal to finance China's nationwide push to replace all gas-powered public buses with electric vehicles by 2021.
The announcement pushed shares of Seven Star to $5.65, locking in a gain of 175% over its Aug. 20 opening price of $3.00 a share.
Seven Stars' tremendous gains show the kind of returns a strong penny stock can generate for shareholders.

Shares on that day opened at $0.03 and went as high as $0.62 on over 21 million in volume.
