BioNexus (NASDAQ:BGLC) stock is rocketing higher on Tuesday despite a lack of news concerning the chemical raw material products company.

Instead, traders are seeing shares of BGLC stock rally this morning alongside heavy trading. That has more than 32 million shares changing hands as of this writing. To put that number in perspective, the daily average trading volume for BioNexus shares is closer to 2 million units.

There are no new press releases or filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that explain why BGLC stock is seeing so much activity today. No analysts are offering recent coverage of the shares, either.

What’s Behind the BGLC Stock Rally?

It’s possible all of this movement surrounding BioNexus shares today has to do with speculative traders. The company’s float was sitting at about 10.12 million shares at the time of this writing. Considering how many units have traded today, it makes sense this would cause volatility.

On that same note, BioNexus shares are firmly in penny stock territory. That comes from its prior closing price of just 41 cents and its market capitalization of about $26 million as of this writing.

Retail and day traders may be pouring into BGLC stock today to pump up the shares. With that in mind, investors will want to be careful about taking a stake in the company, as a dump could happen soon.

BGLC stock is up 323.3% as of Tuesday morning.
