These Penny Stocks Are Picking Up Where They Left Off
Penny stocks have often proven to captivate the interests of novice and experienced traders alike. These cheap stocks generally trade below $5 according to the official SEC definition of penny stocks. Based on share price alone, investors can a number of penny stocks at one time and leverage the overall position size to benefit from a small move in share price.
For example, if an investor buys one share of Apple stock (AAPL – Stock Report), it would cost around $315. However, for the same $315, the same investor could purchase over 1,000 shares of a $0.30 penny stock. Though there is a much higher risk with the latter, a small move of $0.10, would see that 1000 shares increase in value by $100. For the same to be true for Apple, the one share of that tech stock would need to jump by $100 instead of by the $0.10 for the penny stock.
Aside from the price being a focus, you should also look at certain sectors as well. Finding a well-timed investment can be as easy as finding the hot sector of the week. Right now it looks like gold stocks are beginning to make a big move. Fears surrounding the coronavirus have pushed a bigger focus on global economies and how they may slow.
As a hedge, many investors take to “safe-haven stocks” like gold to use it as a store of value among other things. On that note, here is a quick look at 5 penny stocks that could be worth tracking at the start of the week.
Penny Stocks To Watch: IMC International Mining
In light of the statement about gold stocks, IMC International Mining (IMCX – Stock Report) (IMIMF) has followed the sector trend. Today the price of gold has managed to break above $1,600 for the first time since January. Prior to that, gold prices hadn’t broken this level since April of 2013. In light of this, junior gold stocks like IMC International have managed to climb higher this month.
Shares of this gold penny stock have managed to jump 100% since early January. This month IMC has attracted more attention after signing a letter of intent for the acquisition of Thane Minerals. According to the specifics of the letter of intent, IMC International plans to acquire Thane and its 100% owned Cathedral Property. This is located in an area called the “Quesnel Terrane”.
The importance of that is the fact that the Quesnel Terrane hosts past and planned productio. In addition, the fact that Cathedral is still in a relatively unexplored portion of the northern Quesnel Terrane means that IMC International could have an opportunity to strike gold and other metals, first. In light of recent gold prices, it could be a beneficial acquisition if/when the companies decide to come to official terms.
Rider: It is noted that the results of nearby or adjacent properties are not necessarily indicative of the potential of the Cathedral property and should not be understood or interpreted to mean that similar results will be obtained from the Cathedral property.
