RVL Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:RVLP) stock is climbing higher on Friday despite a lack of news from the specialty pharmaceutical company.

There aren’t any new press releases of filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that explain why the shares are up today. On that same note, no analysts are offering new coverage of RVLP stock that would be behind today’s rally.

Even so, shares of RVLP stock are taking off with heavy trading today. As of this writing, more than 14 million shares of RVL Pharmaceuticals’ stock have changed hands. That’s already above its daily average trading volume of about 10.8 million shares.

This could be due to the fact that RVLP is a penny stock. This comes from the company’s low closing price of 11 cents yesterday, as well as its market capitalization of just $12.266 million.

Why That Matters to RVLP Stock

Penny stocks are often volatile without any news. This is typically the result of retail and day traders latching onto the shares for a pump and dump. That results in large gains that are often followed by quick drops shortly after.

Considering the large stock market movements RVLP stock is seeing today, along with the lack of news, it seems like this could be what’s happening with the company’s shares. This has the stock up 28.2% as of Friday morning.
