As with every time one of these meme stocks take off, I have to warn traders about the danger of investing in them. These rallies often end with shares falling hard. That’s especially true for ZOM, which is the pure definition of a penny stock with shares trading below $1. Penny stocks are incredibly vulnerable to pump and dump schemes due to their low entry point that makes them easy to manipulate.
Investors watching ZOM stock today will note that volume is heavier than normal. Some 104 million shares of the stock have changed hands, as compared to its daily average trading volume of about 28.7 million.
