No matter how many warnings experts issue regarding penny stocks, people invariably find their way into this speculative arena. And that issue has become even more prominent thanks to mobile trading apps like Robinhood (NASDAQ:HOOD). With the ability to wager on the full spectrum of investment vehicles right at your fingertips, Robinhood is somewhat of a mixed bag.
On the one hand, let’s at least give credit where it’s due. Prior to the novel coronavirus pandemic, financial analysts bemoaned that younger people were investing at a lower rate than prior generations at their age milestones. Suddenly, with extra time on their hands and government stimulus checks in the mail, many folks started making up for lost time. However, quite a few did so through penny stocks.
That’s not to say that this segment of the market is inherently a poor choice. Many of today’s blue chips once started off as little more than a dream, with share prices reflecting this risk profile. But with patience and truckloads of good fortune, you can make a killing with penny stocks.

Since July, daily volatility of the video game retailer has declined by around half. On a per-day basis, GME stock now moves only as much as tech firms like Etsy (NASDAQ:ETSY) and Snap (NYSE:SNAP), lulling short sellers into a sense of false security. Short interest now sits at 51.1 million shares, a 63% increase from this time last year. The put-call also ratio remains bearish; 1.52 puts now exist for every January 2023 call outstanding.

From 2014 through 2019, revenue skyrocketed 318%. And during that same five-year stretch, Etsy went from producing a net loss of $15 million to a bottom-line profit of $96 million.

Full-on approval for any possible treatments remains far away. But progress otherwise with the FDA continues, such as the company putting in its Investigational New Drug (IND) application, which it is slated to do this quarter. Is MNMD stock high-risk and richly-priced? Yes. But it may be worth it as the chances of eventual commercialization grow.
