3 Penny Stocks to Watch During The First Full Week of October
With October in full swing, the time to make a penny stocks watchlist is now. But, to do so, investors need to consider a few different factors. While many investors are hoping for a bullish turnaround, there are some events that could keep the market in volatile waters.
It’s worth noting that attention has shifted away from the pandemic slightly and onto more pressing economic and political tensions. This includes inflation in the U.S., jobs reports, and more. However, hopes still remain high that October could be a better performing month for penny stocks and blue chips than September was.
One aspect that is brightening the outlook right now is the potential of Merck & Co. Inc.’s (NYSE: MRK) new Covid pill. Early studies are showing that this pill could have potential to reduce deaths in those with Covid by half. And, the company plans to apply for EUA or emergency use authorization within a short time frame.
Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert the Vanderbilt University stated that the pill “would allow us to treat many more people much more quickly and, we trust, much less expensively.” Overall, it looks like the U.S. has turned the corner on Covid for now, with cases continuing to decline over their previous month highs. So, with this in mind, let’s take a look at three penny stocks to watch this week.
