As the main stock indices like the S&P 500 and Nasdaq continue to climb, penny stocks are becoming attractive for those seeking significant returns. Despite their reputation for extreme price fluctuations and high risk, they offer the potential for impressive gains, especially in a bull market. For May, there are seven penny stocks worth considering. These companies, despite their low market capitalization and liquidity, have solid foundations and promising growth prospects, potentially minting new millionaires. This led to my list of strong buy penny stocks.

The Russell 2000 Elliott Wave analysis suggests we are in a trending market, favoring small-cap companies. While many penny stocks can be highly unpredictable and often fail, some under $1 stocks present a unique opportunity for those who understand the risks involved. These companies have the potential to achieve remarkable growth, making them worthy of consideration for any investor’s portfolio.

So, here are three of the best strong buy penny stocks for investors to buy this month.

TNXP is actively pursuing several key initiatives for 2024. The company plans to submit a New Drug Application (NDA) to the FDA in the second half of 2024 for TNX-102 SL, targeting the management of fibromyalgia.

This decision follows positive outcomes from two Phase 3 trials, indicating significant improvements in sleep quality and pain reduction for fibromyalgia patients. The drug demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in sleep quality and daily pain reduction, making it a promising candidate for FDA approval​.

Analyst ratings for TNXP currently suggest a Strong Buy consensus, with an average price target indicating a potential upside of approximately 391% from its current trading levels. This optimism comes from the upcoming NDA submission and the potential market exclusivity of its drugs in key markets.

The drug is being developed for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and showed promising results in Phase 2b trials, including a 7.7-point improvement over placebo in anxiety symptoms at week 12.

The company is currently advancing its lead candidate, GTX-104, a novel injectable formulation of nimodipine for intravenous infusion, aimed at treating aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH).

Analyst ratings for ACST suggest a positive outlook, with a projected price target indicating a potential significant upside from current levels. This optimism comes from the anticipated NDA submission and the potential market impact of GTX-104.

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.
