Elevai Labs (NASDAQ:ELAB) stock is rocketing higher on Thursday as the skincare development company’s shares experience heavy trading this morning.

That has more than 9.4 million shares of ELAB stock changing hands of this writing. To put that in perspective, the daily average trading volume for Elevai Labs’ shares is closer to 1.2 million units.

Investors will note that this extreme stock movement comes without any recent news concerning Elevai Labs. The company has put out any new preleases or filings that explain the rise. There also hasn’t been any new coverage from analysts to explain why the stock is up today.

One thing that investors will want to keep in mind is Elevai Labs’ prior closing price of 68 cents. Combined with its market capitalization of around $11 million, this places it firmly in penny stock territory.

Why That Matters to ELAB Stock

That could be what’s happening with ELAB stock today considering the rapid rise and lack of news. If so, traders won’t want to jump in on this rally as a dip is likely to follow.
