HWH International (NASDAQ:HWH) stock is rocketing higher on Thursday despite a lack of news from the health, wealth, and happiness marketplace company.

There are no new press releases or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that explain why HWH stock is up today. There also isn’t any new analyst coverage that would cause the shares to rally as they are.

What is happening is heavy trading of HWH stock. As of this writing, more than 5.9 million shares of HWH have changed hands. That’s a massive increase compared to the company’s daily average trading volume of about 165,000 shares.

It’s also worth mentioning that HWH is a penny stock. This comes from its prior closing price of $1.57 per share and market capitalization of $25.471 million.

Why That Matters to HWH Stock?

Being a penny stock comes with certain disadvantages. That includes trouble with day and retail traders manipulating the price. This is possible due to the low entry point.

If that’s what is happening this morning, it could mean HWH stock will give up this morning’s gains soon. This type of volatility is one of the disadvantages that penny stocks face.

HWH stock is up 54.8% as of Thursday morning but was down 58.9% when markets closed yesterday.
