PGY stock has seen massive gains over the last week with shares currently trading at about $21.65 as of Wednesday afternoon. To put that in perspective, the company’s stock was only valued at $5.35 per share when markets closed last Thursday.
So what’s behind the major increase in PGY share prices? The company filed a prospectus last week for a stock offering. That sent off speculation that a potential takeover of the company was in the works.
Since then, we’ve seen the price of PGY stock continue to rise as investors pile into the company. Without any solid news to go on, it’s clear that investors will want to be careful about taking a stake in the financial tech company.
While the takeover speculation is already enough to warrant that, the recent volatility adds to it. It’s completely possible that PGY stock is seeing such drastic gains on a short squeeze. It could also be day traders working together to boost shares higher. No matter the case, investors that buy PGY shares now could end up seeing red if the stock experiences a drastic fall.
PGY stock is also seeing heavy trading again today with some 30 million shares on the move. That’s a major surge compared to its daily average trading volume of about 3.2 million shares.
PGY stock is up 29.6% as of Wednesday afternoon.
