Looking For Top Penny Stocks Today?
Penny stocks have been some of the most interesting stocks to watch this week. Most importantly, small cap stocks, in general, have captivated traders more-so than large caps. One of the reasons has to do with a search for volatility after Monday’s big spike. If you’re just tuning into the stock market this week, Monday’s action was more or less the biggest day of the week for blue chip stocks.
There was a big gap up on vaccine optimism and what some thought was a clear path forward in the Presidential election. But as the market exuberance subsided and more uncertainty began taking hold, the markets put on the breaks. While this also went for things like the Russell 2000 (IWM Stock Market), momentum was noticeably more stagnant for things like the S&P, for instance. Needless to say, day traders seek big swings to capture gains. Some things that have offered this: small cap stocks and penny stocks, in general.
We’ve already seen some of the low float stocks of the day break new highs. We’ve also seen former penny stocks breakout to new highs. Take, Tracon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (TCON Stock Report), for instance. It was one of the top penny stocks to watch since August. First-hand, we watched TCON stock jump from around $1.70 until breaking past the $5 mark in September. This week, TCON stock reached fresh 2020 highs of $7.45 during the early afternoon session after it reported earnings. This is an example of a small cap stock that also just happened to be one of the penny stocks to watch earlier this year. So what’s turning heads mid-week?
Top Penny Stocks To Watch: Havn Life Sciences Inc.
Havn Life Sciences Inc. (HAVLF Stock Report) is one of the newer penny stocks to watch in the U.S. Market activity has been creeping up over the last few weeks. But even with this, its home exchange on the CSE (CSE:HAVN) tends to see much more activity. Needless to say, Havn is one of a handful of psychedelic penny stocks to watch right now. This morning the company announced that it had launched 7 natural health supplements. One of the models that these mushroom stocks are implementing is functional foods and nutraceuticals. That’s in addition to the psychedelic compounds being studied.
These 7 products will be Havn Life’s first natural health products to launch in 2021. Each product has been formulated with adaptogens and antioxidants to aid in overall health and wellness and support human optimization. What’s also important to note is that Havn received approval from Health Canada for all seven products for launch in 2021.
While there are other mushroom stocks to watch, Havn may stand apart from most. One of the reasons being its leadership team. Former Aphria CEO Vic Neufeld is the Executive Chairman of Havn Life Sciences. Obviously, the similarities drawn between mushroom stocks and marijuana stocks are hard to ignore. Neufeld was integral in not only building Aphria but also making it one of the “Big Names” in cannabis. His focus is now on building Havn Life Sciences. Will this be another repeat of what he was able to achieve with Aphria or still too early to tell?
