3 Penny Stocks to Watch Next Week in Mid-October
With a mostly bullish October following a less than stellar September for penny stocks, investors are excited about what the future could hold. Early on Friday, October 8th, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by around 13 points while the S&P 500 futures rose by around 0.2%.

This essentially means that trading is flat following the jobs report that came out. The report stated that the economy only added around 194,000 jobs in September, which is disappointing considering the Dow Jones estimate of 500,000. However, the rate of unemployment managed to fall much lower than analysts expected at around 4.8%.
“This jobs number could call into question the starting point for taper late this year. There are lots of positives in the report, like an uptick in the average hourly earnings, but not enough to sugarcoat the fact that the employment picture remains murky with all the Covid related cross currents.”Jamie Cox, a Managing Partner at Harris Financial Group
Of course, we have to consider that Covid is still very much around and is causing uncertainty in the market. And while cases have declined substantially in the U.S., there is still quite a lot of fear in the stock market. So, considering that investing in penny stocks in 2021 is not easy, there is still plenty of momentum to take advantage of. With that in mind, here are three penny stocks to watch for next week’s watchlist.
3 Penny Stocks For Your Mid-October Watchlist

- B2Gold Corp. (NYSE: BTG)
- Senseonics Holdings Inc. (NYSE: SENS)
BEST Inc. (NYSE: BEST)
In the past five days, shares of BEST Inc. have climbed by over 24%. This is quite substantial and is one of the reasons that investors are watching BEST stock right now.

Back in August, the company released its second-quarter financial results for 2021. The company experienced a net loss, gross loss, revenue loss, and a negative EBITDA. This occurred because of a lower average selling price in express and freight. This was partially offset by higher volumes in both of those business units. The company is now refocusing its attention on different aspects of its business to strengthen its balance sheet.
“In the second quarter we continued to press forward with our strategic refocusing plan and build on the encouraging signs we are seeing in network stability, service quality, and cost reduction while adapting to the competitive industry landscape.”Founder, CEO, and Chairman of BEST Johnny Chou
