Polished.com (NYSEMKT:POL) stock is falling on Thursday after the e-commerce company discussed an unexpected rally on Wednesday.

Shares of POL stock saw an incredible surge in price during normal trading hours yesterday. That saw the stock climb from a closing price of $1.18 per share on Tuesday to a closing price of $7.60 on Wednesday.

That massive rally was enough to cause the company to comment on the movement. The company noted that it wasn’t aware of any reason for the stock rally. It also mentioned that it was notified of the unusual movement by the New York Stock Exchange.

POL Stock Movement on Thursday

Considering the amazing rally shares of POL stock underwent yesterday, it makes sense that its shares would give up some of those gains today. As of Thursday morning, POL shares are down 38.2%.

It also bears mentioning that more than 1.7 million shares of POL stock have changed hands as of this writing. That’s quickly closing in on the company’s daily average trading volume of about 2.2 million shares.

One thing to keep in mind is that POL is a penny stock. It’s possible that its rally yesterday was a plan to pump up the shares before dumping them. That means we may see further drops in the price of POL in the coming days.
