Are you looking to buy penny stocks? This week has been a wild one for stocks under $5. In fact, throughout the course of the week, we’ve seen stocks under $1 become $46 stocks in less than 24 hours. Not all penny stock made moves like this. However, many were able to and have currently begun to see significant multi-hundred percent moves this week. Are small-cap stock back? You can answer that question for yourself.
Broader market volatility and a little bit of help from Elon Musk might have become the catalyst. First the S&P and Dow have gotten beaten up for the last few weeks. This perpetual decline has sent a shockwave across markets. Meanwhile, we’ve had “anomalies” like Tesla and others reaching new highs.
That was, until Battery Day. That is when we began seeing a jolt in small-cap energy stocks. Musk’s comments on increasing production and the side-effects that could bring helped boost EV, tech, energy, and the “Pick and Shovel” participants related to these broader sectors.

It was to facilitate the purchase of electric vehicles and cross-promote their brands, products, and services for a term of three years.

Genius Brands International Inc. (GNUS Stock Report) is one of the love/hate penny stocks to watch this year. The stock had an epic rally during the summer that took GNUS stock to highs of over $11. But as you can see, the penny stock has come back to levels below $1.50. One of the things I will say is that GNUS has a cult-like following. News events have acted as short-term catalyst in recent weeks. But nothing has driven enough momentum to take it above its 50-day moving average, which has acted as resistance for months.
This week, the company came out with two important pieces of news. First, Genius announced that Marc Rosenberg was appointed President of Global Brands and Chief Marketing Officer of the company. He was the former head of marketing at Hasbro Toys and Tiger Electronics. His biggest wins came from brand launches for Furby, GigaPets, and Hit Clips.
During the second half of the week, GNUS stock is off an running again following another key update. This time the company announced an expansion to its Kartoon Channel! footprint. Genius Brands reported the first TV manufacturer deal with Samsung. Kartoon Channel@ is now available for free on Samsung Smart TVs. The company also said that Kartoon Channel! is avialble on Android and the Android TV app. This adds to the growing list of outlets for Genius Brands. Kartoon Channel! is available on Apple TV and iOS, Amazon Fire TV, Google Play, Comcast, Cox, DISH, Sling TV, and Xumo.Penny Stocks To Buy [or avoid]: SG Blocks Inc.

At the start of the third quarter, Sypris received “significant orders” for its Tube Turns® branded Ultra-High Pressure and Double Bolt closure product lines.
