Excitement over meme stocks has been effective in helping to send biotech penny stocks on wild moves higher. But as that trend continues to fade, names in this category are going to lean more on company-specific catalysts to move the needle. Those catalysts will include progress and updates regarding their candidates in the pipeline for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
It’s approval itself from this regulatory agency that enables these new therapies, treatments, and vaccines to become available for sale in the U.S. That’s why biotech investors watch these developments carefully.
FDA approval paves the way for a windfall, such as a licensing and partnership deal, or a takeover offer at a big premium from an established pharmaceutical company. These companies are priced on potential rather than on their current underlying value, so any news of failure to get approval can send prices to dramatically lower prices.
With these seven biotech penny stocks, some are still waiting for the FDA to say yes or no. For others, the FDA has already said “thanks, but no thanks,” but have left the door open for another submittal. Either way, each one could see tremendous gains if subsequent news is in its favor:
