On another mixed session today, investors appear to be humming and hawing about how many large-cap stocks will perform. However, there’s outsized interest in some small-cap names today, with China Jo-Jo Drugstores (NASDAQ:CJJD) seeing impressive buying pressure. Today, CJJD stock surged more than 80% higher, with nearly 100 times the average daily trading volume. As of writing, CJJD stock has dipped to a smaller but still significant 64% up for the day.

This move comes as the Chinese retailer and wholesale distributor of pharmaceuticals and other healthcare products made a big announcement. The company announced today that it will be terminating a previously-proposed direct offering. This offering would have seen 2.26 million shares issued alongside 4.5 million warrants. Accordingly, investors are clearly pricing in less dilution risk with the stock, resulting in a massive move.

Now, like other penny stocks with low floats, such moves are made possible during periods when demand greatly exceeds supply. Given today’s incredible volume around CJJD stock, such a move is one that may be expected.

Additionally, this is a stock with a market capitalization of around $22 million after today’s rise. Thus, retail investors looking to play momentum trades have clearly picked up on this little-known stock, with little selling pressure signaling a downtrend is forming, at least yet.

With that said, let’s dive into which big-money investors are in this stock right now.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: 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 risk.
