The stocks

ReWalk Robotics (RWLK)

Shares nearly tripled on June 4, 2019 following news that the FDA issued clearance for the company’s ReStore Exo-Suit. The stock had traded about 1 million shares per day the prior 90 days before the news; however, on that day, the stock traded 30 million shares.

Insys Therapeutics (INSY)

Shares dropped over 60% following news of a sale of all substantial assets through Chapter 11 bankruptcy on June 8th. The company announced on June 11 it received a delisting notice from the Nasdaq. The stock dropped from $1.30 to $0.16 in one week.

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals Inc (CTRV)

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals shares nearly doubled on June 6th following news that the company showed results from the preclinical study for its CRV431. The stock then dropped in from $15.86 to $5.89 on June 17th going on to June 18th. Shares traded over 5 million shares per day on June 16 and 17, compared to normal daily volume of about 300,000 shares.

Eltek (ELTK) 

Shares rose over 600% from May 28, 2019 to May 31, 2019 despite a clear material news item. While the company reported quarterly earnings on May 29, this likely did not create enough of a catalyst to move the stock so much.

Armata Pharmaceuticals (ARMP)

Armata Pharmaceuticals (ARMP) shares rose 37% on May 28th on low volume after the company announced the publication of a case study involving a cystic fibrosis patient who was treated with Armata’s AP-PA01 product. Then from May 29th to June 3rd, the stock fell from $4 to $3 per share.

Disclaimer

As state above, these stocks are not stock picks and are not recommendations to buy or sell a stock. Rather, these ideas should be viewed as potential opportunities for elevated levels of volatility and trader interest and thus increased liquidity. These stocks can be opportunities for traders who already have an existing strategy to play sub-$5 stocks. Penny stocks can be extremely dangerous for a number of reasons, including the major swings in percent a small dollar/cent move can create, decreased liquidity when interest fades and decreased transparency into operations. Penny-stock trading is not for beginners. Benzinga does not recommend trading or investing in low-priced stocks if you haven’t had at least a couple years of experience in the stock market.
