Ainos (NASDAQ:AIMD) stock is on the move Monday as the healthcare company’s shares experienced heavy trading this morning.

Ainos stock is experiencing strong pre-market trading on Monday as more than 7 million shares of the stock have changed hands. That’s a massive surge compared to its daily average trading volume of about 637,000 shares.

Investors will note that there is no clear news from the company that explains today’s rally. That includes a lack of press releases or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) this morning. There’s also no new analyst coverage of the shares today.

One thing that investors will want to keep in mind is that AIMD is a penny stock. This comes from its prior closing price of $1.05 per share and market capitalization of $4.912 million.

Why This Matters to AIMD Stock

Being a penny stock opens AIMD shares up to certain vulnerabilities. That includes certain types of traders taking advantage of the low entry point to manipulate the shares.

It’s also worth mentioning the stock saw strange trading activity on Friday when 4.2 million shares were traded. Traders will note that AIMD’s float is about 1.08 million units.

AIMD stock is up 57.1% as of Monday morning. The stock closed out Friday down 45.3% year-to-date.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
