Aptorum (NASDAQ:APM) stock is climbing higher on Wednesday despite a lack of news from the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company.

However, trading of APM stock is taking off today with more than 1 million shares on the move. To put that in perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is closer to 51,000 shares.

One thing that traders will keep in mind is APM’s penny stock status. That comes from its low trading price of $2.89 per share, as well as its market capitalization of $10.32 million and low average trading volume.

Penny stocks can be incredibly volatile, and that’s doubly true during pre-market or after-hours trading. That means anyone considering an investment in the company will want to be wary considering today’s rally. It could come crashing down without warning.

Even so, there is some recent news traders will want to know about. That includes the company’s plan to merge Paths Innovation Limited, a subsidiary of APM’s subsidiary Aptorum Therapeutics Limited, with Universal Sequencing Technology.

Also worth mentioning is Aptorum’s earnings report released on Monday. The company’s earnings per share of -$2.75 beat out Wall Street’s estimate. That’s despite its revenue of $9.8 million coming in below estimates.

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.
