SeqLL (NASDAQ:SQL) stock is on the rise Monday with heavy trading despite a lack of news from the molecule sequencing technology company.

Getting into that trading, some 1.7 million shares of SQL stock have changed hands as of this writing. That’s a major increase compared to its daily average trading volume of about 163,000 shares.

However, investors will keep in mind that there’s no recent news about the company that explains that activity. That includes a lack of press releases, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, or coverage from analysts.

What is worth knowing is that SQL is a penny stock. That comes from its low closing price of 34 cents on Friday and its market capitalization of $4.652 million. This means the stock is more subject to volatility. That’s doubly true during pre-market trading.

What To Know About SQL Stock

SeqLL was founded in 2013 and operates out of Woburn, Mass. The company went public in August 2021 through an upsized $13 million initial public offering (IPO). That saw the company’s stock debut at a price of $4.25 per share.

SeqLL’s main focus is on the development of molecule sequencing technology. This has it seeking a better understanding of “molecular mechanisms of disease and fundamental biological processes.”

SQL stock is up 42.9% as of Monday 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.
