XTI Aerospace (NASDAQ:XTIA) stock is on the rise Tuesday alongside heavy trading of the vertical takeoff airplane manufacturing company’s shares.

This has more than 6.2 million shares of the company’s stock changing hands as of this writing. That’s already well above its daily average trading volume of about 238,000 shares.

It’s worth noting that this movement comes without any recent news from XTI Aerospace. That includes a lack of press releases or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). There’s also no new analyst coverage to talk about.

What is worth mentioning is XTI Aerospace’s status as a penny stock. That comes from its low market capitalization of $20.16 million and prior closing price of $2.06 per share.

Why This Matters to XTIA Stock

Being a penny stock means that some traders might be manipulating the price of XTIA shares this morning. The low entry price makes it easy enough for groups to get together and do this.

This seems possible, considering the heavy trading and lack of news today. That also means it’s likely that XTIA will fall after today’s rally. This makes it a risky bet for investors.

XTIA stock is up 88.8% as of Tuesday morning.
