10 Top Penny Stocks to Buy This Week, February 25

Today, we're recapping the 10 top penny stocks to buy this week, plus a penny stock with the potential to pop after its earnings call on Thursday (Feb. 28).

You see, penny stocks offer investors the potential for double- and triple-digit gains in a matter of days.

Just take Sky Solar Holdings Ltd. (NASDAQ: SKYS), last week's top-performing penny stock. On Feb. 15, SKYS stock jumped a mere $0.60 on rumors the company may beat earnings later this month.

However, that small price fluctuation resulted in a 75% return for investors who bought before the bump - and a 111% return for those that held onto the company's stock through the end of last week.

These kinds of gains on small price fluctuations are common for penny stocks with the right kind of underlying financials that will generate strong returns for shareholders.

However, with nearly 1,000 penny stocks trading on major exchanges, it's nearly impossible to know which penny stocks have the potential to soar.

The Best Penny Stock to Buy This Week

Southwestern Energy Co. (NYSE: SWN) specializes in natural gas extraction across North America.

Southwestern currently maintains drilling rights to over 918,000 acres across the Appalachian Basin, ranging from West Virginia to Pennsylvania.

Over the last two years, the company's gross profits have soared 58% thanks to increasing demand and volatility in the energy sector. That's helped them beat earnings for the last four quarters, and with their next earnings call due on Thursday, the stock could get another boost.

That's a sign the company is extremely well managed compared to its competitors, and it is making excellent use of its capital.

Southwestern's return on equity is a staggering 29%. Compare that to the oil industry's average return on equity of a mere 1.97%.

It also indicates that SWN will be able to effectively navigate the energy market's continued volatility in 2019 and beyond. But with both oil and gas prices trending higher this year, Southwestern's bottom line could grow even fatter.

SWN's current share price is $4.46.

However, analysts are predicting the company stock to jump to $7.30 over the next year - a gain of 64% over today's price. That's a great return, but with a VQScore of 3.75 and rising energy prices, that estimate could be way too conservative.

Millions of Americans Now Entitled to Collect "Federal Rent Checks"

Forty-six years ago, Congress passed an obscure piece of legislation known as Public Law 92-313.

And today, it's why the Treasury is sitting on top of an $11.1 billion pile of money.

Fortunately, Americans from coast to coast have discovered a loophole that entitles them to a sizable portion of this cash.

And they're racing to add their names to a special distribution list.

Some are now receiving monthly checks worth $1,795 each. Others are collecting $3,000, $5,000, or more every month.

If you want to join them in this powerful investment income stream, you better hurry up.

Because this cash is getting scooped up left and right! Read more...
