Infobird (NASDAQ:IFBD) stock is gaining on Thursday even without any recent news from the software-as-a-service provider.

Investors looking for information behind the IFBD stock rally today won’t find much. The company hasn’t released any news reports or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that give a reason for its gains today.

Instead, traders can point toward the heavy trading of IFBD stock to explain today’s movement. As of this writing, more than 2 million shares of the company’s stock have changed hands. To put that in perspective, the daily average trading volume for IFBD is only around 98,000 shares.

Investors will want to keep that low average trading volume in mind today. That, combined with a closing price of $1.21 yesterday and a market capitalization of just $5.551 million, makes IFBD a penny stock.

It’s worth pointing out IFBD’s penny stock status for a couple of reasons. First off, penny stocks are often subject to volatility, especially during pre-market hours. Secondly, these stocks are easier to manipulate by retail traders. These also help explain the stock’s rally today.

Other IFBD Stock News
