Helbiz (NASDAQ:HLBZ) stock is on the move Wednesday despite a lack of hard news concerning the electric bike and scooter company.

Instead, heavy trading volume is the main reason that HLBZ stock is climbing higher today. As of this writing, more than 43 million shares have changed hands. That’s below the company’s daily average of 60.9 million shares, but it’s still an incredibly strong movement in early trading today.

Investors looking for why shares of HLBZ stock are rallying today are having a hard time finding news. That’s because the company hasn’t released any press releases or filings that explain the jump. Even so, there are rumors to take into account.

Rumors Affecting HLBZ Stock

Traders on social media are hyping up shares of Helbiz stock today on merger speculation. Several traders believe that Helbiz may be poised to combine with electric vehicle (EV) company Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN).

MULN is already a hot stock among speculative traders, so it makes sense that rumors of a deal with the company would launch HLBZ stock higher. What will be really interesting to see is what the stock does if these rumors are confirmed or denied.

HLBZ stock is up 36.7% as of Wednesday morning.
