What a Public Offering Means for GFAI Stock
With Guardforce AI pricing and enacting this public offering, the company is increasing the total amount of outstanding shares available. That dilutes investors’ stake in the company, which helps explain today’s drop in GFAI stock.
To go along with that, public offerings often devalue a company’s shares. In this case, GFAI is selling its stock for $4.65 per share in the offering but it closed Wednesday at $7.30 per share. That’s another reason investors are reacting negatively to today’s public offering news.
GFAI stock is down 31.8% as of Thursday morning.

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.
