Penny Stocks Under $1 To Watch This Week

Yunji Inc. (NASDAQ: YJ)

A common thread will all penny stocks on this list besides the price is the trend. Most have faced some longer stints of selling pressure that took them to the levels they’re at right now. However, recent market momentum seems to have sparked a turnaround (for now). How long that rebound lasts is yet to be seen.

Yunji is one of these companies. Its share price recently hit new 52-week lows this week. The social eCommerce platform is coming off of mixed earnings. Yunji recorded a Q3 profit; however, revenues declined due to a change-up in its model. In particular, the company’s free access in 2020 was discontinued in 2021. According to the company, revenues from its membership program in Q3 came from paying members joining the new membership program launched during Q2 of this year. The company remains optimistic in its supply chain matrix for providing members value.

In addition to this, Chinese stocks are gaining attention, in general. It comes after UBS Global Wealth Management’s Kelvin Tay said in an interview, “I think China is cheap. If you look at the performance of China this year, on a relative basis, it has actually underperformed by about 40% against both the European indices as well as the American indices…From a valuations perspective, from a positioning perspective, China certainly looks very, very attractive.”

With that in mind, YJ stock has experienced a strong rebound in the stock market today.

Hotties Up is a scenario-based game with dress-up parkour. It targets the Gen Z female demographic and allows players to choose costumes and unlock new dialogue depending on the level that is passed.

This isn’t the first milestone for CooTek’s gaming focus, either. Earlier in December, the company’s Fengdu Novel app reached a collaboration with Tencent Video’s Mars Project. Tencent’s project is designed to support micro drama TV adaptation. With these latest initiatives and a renewed interest in Chinese penny stocks, CTK could be another one of the companies to watch this week.

Color Star Technology (NASDAQ: CSCW)

Sticking with this trend in China-based companies, Color Star Technology joins the list of penny stocks under $1 to watch this week. Shares of CSCW stock bounced back on Wednesday, as did many other China tech names. The company has been fighting for a position in the market ever since a significant sell-off in September took shares below 50 cents. The bulk of the bearish trend came after Color Star announced a multi-million dollar raise at a steep discount to market.

Regardless of the financing, the company added working capital when Color Star began expanding its reach in new entertainment initiatives. These include acquiring Chujing Esports. The companies will collaborate on developing a “global esports pan-entertainment sector” leveraging other industry assets. Shortly after, Color Star also announced the planned launch of sports-related non-fungible token (NFT) products to gain exposure to the budding metaverse industry.

In line with this, Color Star has continued building out its metaverse platform. The launch of its cooperation with the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and Spanish soccer player Casillas Fernández further enhanced the potential of the company’s entertainment metaverse platform.
