SCWorx (NASDAQ:WORX) stock is rocketing higher on Wednesday after boosting investor confidence with a stock purchase agreement!

This has SCWorx agreeing to the sale of up to $5 million of WORX stock to an institutional investor over the next 24 months. It’s worth noting that SCWorx has the right to do this and isn’t required to by the terms of the contract.

As part of this deal, SCWorx is issuing 277,778 shares of WORX stock to the institutional investor. The company also notes it plans to use net proceeds from the stock sales to fund its working capital and general corporate purposes. All of this is to support the future growth of its business.

Tim Hannibal, president and CEO of SCWorx, had the following to say about the deal in a news release.

“We believe this commitment from the Institutional Investor demonstrates investor confidence in SCWorx, including our business model that leverages the SCWorx data management SaaS solution to assist hospitals in achieving their supply chain goals and cost savings objectives.”

With today’s news comes heavy trading of WORX stock. As of this writing, more than 26 million shares of the stock are on the move. To put that in perspective, the healthcare data company’s daily average trading volume is only about 227,000 shares.

With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
