The latest update from Sesen Bio came from June 2nd. This is when the company announced a global supply partnership with Qilu Pharmaceutical. This is in relation to the supply of Vicineum, in which Qilu will take part in manufacturing.
“Given the chronic product shortage issues that exist for patients with NMIBC, we have thoughtfully developed what we believe to be a very reliable and robust supply chain with world-class manufacturing partners.
Qilu Pharmaceutical has extensive biomanufacturing expertise and experience supplying products for commercial sale around the world, which positions them well to support the anticipated significant global demand for Vicineum.”Dr. Thomas Cannell, the CEO and President of Sesen Bio

Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE: UEC)
Uranium Energy Corp. is a mining penny stock that explores, extracts, and processes uranium and titanium concentrate. It operates out of the United States, Canada, and Paraguay. Currently, Uranium Energy Corp. has an interest in the Palangana mine, Goliad, Burke Hollow, Longhorn, and Salvo projects. Uranium has grown in value throughout the year, with its fair share of spikes and dips.
A lot of this penny stock’s momentum started with a May 20th announcement. The company stated that it acquired an additional 200,000 pounds of U.S. warehoused uranium. It also acquired an additional 1,000,000 common shares of Uranium Royalty Corp. (NASDAQ: UROY), thus increasing its physical and equity uranium holdings.

Gran Tierra Energy Inc. (NYSE: GTE)
Gran Tierra Energy Inc. is an oil and gas penny stock that is based in Canada. The company explores for and produces oil and gas at properties in Colombia and Ecuador. As of December 31st, 2020 the company had total proven undeveloped reserves of 26.2 million barrels of oil equivalent. It’s worth noting that Gran Tierra Energy has not released any recent company-specific news explaining its recent market gains.
This company is likely experiencing market momentum because of inflation fears. Other high-performing oil and gas companies could be bringing more momentum to GTE stock as well. What we can do is take a look at its latest financial results to get an idea of where the company is at. Gran Tierra released its first-quarter results at the beginning of May. Its average production of 24,463 BOPD was a 12% quarter-over-quarter increase.
“During 2021, we have significantly increased Gran Tierra’s total production. Our ability to ramp up Gran Tierra’s production to the highest level in over a year clearly demonstrates our team’s success at optimizing our core oil fields under waterflood, while preserving and maximizing the long-term value of all of our assets.”The President and CEO Gary Guidry
One month ago, GTE stock was at $0.67 per share on average. Now on June 30th, GTE stock is at $0.74 per share on average. Will GTE make your penny stock watchlist this month?
IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE: IAG)
IAMGOLD Corporation is another mining penny stock showing high performance in the market right now. This company explores, develops, and operates gold mining properties. It owns an interest in the Rosebel mine, Essakane mine, Westwood mine, and more. It also has exploration and development properties such as the Boto gold project and the Pitangui project. All of these projects are located in North America, South America, and West Africa.
There is no recent news that is specifically impacting IAG stock at the moment. This is a company that is primarily impacted by the price of gold and other minerals themselves. So when gold increases in price, it is possible that IAG stock does as well.
Since IAMGOLD Corporation is a mining penny stock, it is more volatile than a traditional gold stock. IAG stock has not had the best year in the market, being near its lowest point of 2021 as of the end of June. With that being said, IAG stock is experiencing a decent gain on June 30th, up 1.5% in the market. Considering this, will you add IAG to your list of penny stocks to watch?
