Are These 3 Penny Stocks on Your Watchlist in 2021?
So far in 2021, penny stocks have been on fire. Despite the last two to three months with high volatility, overall this year has been quite good to investors. But, with Covid still around and fears of economic inflation high, there is a lot of volatility in the stock market.
However, if you have a solid trading strategy and a thorough understanding of the market, making money with penny stocks right now can be done. While volatility with blue chips may be a downside, with penny stocks, large fluctuations are one of the ways that investors benefit. And while it is easy to get caught up in hype and speculation, doing the proper research will always put you ahead of the rest.
Because of the speculative nature of penny stocks, investors should always be watching the market and the news. Events no matter the size can have a swift and direct impact on how penny stocks trade. And for this reason, investors should understand both company-specific and industry-specific happenings. Considering all of this, let’s take a look at three penny stocks that you need to know about right now.
3 Penny Stocks to Watch in October 2021
Trivago (NASDAQ: TRVG)
Travel stocks have felt the pressure from lasting effects of the pandemic over the last 18 months. However, with new vaccines hitting the market and CDC support for additional booster shots, hopes are high that things are set to turn around. With that, everything from airlines and cruise stocks to booking sites like Trivago are coming back into focus.
Earlier this week, the US was the latest to ease travel restrictions on fully vaccinated foreign visitors. Though the new rules won’t take effect until November, the optimism that has stemmed from it quickly translated into the stock market. In fact, looking at the last two days of trading for TRVG stock shows this to be the case. Since September 23, Trivago shares have bounced back just under 16% so far.
If you’ve followed TRVG stock for the last few months you may recall some of the comments made in their Q2 earnings. In particular, the company expressed that August and September could be more volatile months. However, they do see strong demand recovering when weighing the outlook for the year. With reopening continuing, TRVG could be on the list of penny stocks to watch heading into the end of the quarter.
