Infobird (NASDAQ:IFBD) stock is rising higher on Wednesday as the software-as-a-service (SaaS) and artificial intelligence (AI) company experiences heavy trading this morning.

That heavy trading has resulted in more than 3.8 million shares of the company’s stock being traded as of this writing. That’s already well beyond its daily average trading volume of about 357,000 shares.

There are no new press releases or filings from Infobird that explain the stock’s rally today. However, that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been in the news recently.

The latest IFBD stock worth noting was on Monday. That’s when the company’s shares underwent a reverse stock split. This was scheduled for late February but was delayed to obtain the required regulatory clearances.

What Else Is Behind the IFBD Stock Rally?

It’s also likely that Infobird’s penny stock status is behind a good portion of today’s movement. That makes sense when you consider that penny stocks are often the targets of pump and dumps.

Adding to this is the company’s current trading volume versus its float of only 31,830 shares. That’s another sign that the stock may be seeing manipulation this morning.

IFBD stock is up 62.5% as of Wednesday morning.

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.
