Ohmyhome stock has more than 23 million shares changing hands during pre-market trading today. That’s a massive surge in trading compared to the company’s daily average volume of only about 24,000 shares.
It also bears mentioning that this activity comes without any news from the company. That includes no press releases or filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The same is true of investor coverage with no analysts offering updates on the company.
One thing worth keeping in mind about Ohmyhome is its penny stock status. That comes from its low daily trading volume, its prior closing price of $1.24 and its market capitalization of just $23.835 million.
Why That Matters to OMH Stock
Being in penny stock territory opens OMH shares up to certain vulnerabilities. That includes volatility that can be extra strong outside of normal trading hours.
This volatility often comes from retail and day traders pumping and dumping stocks. That means we might be seeing a pump of OMH shares considering the lack of news today. It also means a dump may be coming soon.
OMH stock is up 366.4% as of Tuesday morning.
