WHLR Stock - Why Is Wheeler Real Estate IT (WHLR) Stock Up 37% Today?

Wheeler Real Estate IT (NASDAQ:WHLR) stock is rising on Wednesday after the real estate investment trusts (REIT) company announced plans to distribute unregistered shares.

A press release from the company reveals that it will likely issue unregistered shares of WHLR stock to cover redemptions of Series D Preferred Stock in December. The company says that this is due to the low price of common stock and the volume of shares that are already registered for redemption.
