Altamira Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CYTO) stock is rising higher on Friday despite a lack of news from the biopharmaceutical company.

There are no new press releases or filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that explain why the stock is up today. On that same note, no analysts are offering new coverage of the stock that would cause this rally.

Even so, shares of CYTO stock are seeing incredibly heavy trading this morning. As of this writing, more than 5.6 million shares have changed hands. For the record, its daily average trading volume is closer to 435,000 shares.

One thing that investors will want to keep in mind about CYTO is that it’s a penny stock. This comes from its low closing price of 16 cents per share yesterday and its market capitalization of $1.3 million.

What That Means for CYTO Stock

Considering its penny stock status, it’s not too surprising that CYTO is rising alongside heavy trading this morning. Penny stocks are often volatile and that’s extra true outside of normal trading hours.

When there’s no news like today, that movement is usually the result of certain traders pumping the shares before a dump. That means investors will want to be careful before taking a stake in Altamira Therapeutics today.

CYTO stock is up 27.5% as of Friday morning.
