Top Penny Stocks to Watch: Key Takeaways

  • Clean Vision Corp. is up on a patent filing and an article calling it “one of the most promising sustainable stocks to buy.”
  • Cuba Beverage Company has all the makings of a classic pump.
  • Metal Arts Co., Inc. spiked 630% on change of control news.

Be grateful that OTCs are hot again, but please don’t trust penny stock promoters. Blatant pumps lead to blown-up accounts every time. Ride the hype, but don’t believe it.

Top 5 Penny Stocks to Watch September 2021

Clean Vision Corp. (OTCPK: CLNV)

Clean Vision Corp. is a holding company that acquires and runs companies in the clean tech and energy sectors.

On August 24, subsidiary Clean-Seas filed a patent for its blockchain-based Plastic Conversion Network (PCN).

Clean Vision CEO Dan Bates said, “The PCN was created to solve a global problem. We recognize that these millions of tons of waste plastic have a high caloric (energy) content and can produce high-value, environmentally friendly commodities […] Using the blockchain to manage and load balance the network, we improve transparency, efficiency and operational costs, driving down the cost of processing and further increasing our profitability.”

Read the full press release here.

This August 26 article said CLNV “may be one of the most promising sustainable stocks to buy.”

Check out the CLNV one-year chart…

As you can see, CLNV is way off its 52-week high of $0.228. But the patent news and article, along with higher than average volume, spiked it 240% in four days. I’m watching for potential dip buys into any big intraday panic.

Cuba Beverage Company (OTCPK: CUBV)

Cuba Beverage Company is a shell company with no operations. But it does have Twitter on fire. The company started tweeting about potential merger candidates in July. It also tweeted it was negotiating with a lithium-extraction company.

An August 27 tweet linked to California-based lithium extraction company Lilac Solutions, Inc. And an August 31 tweet said, “We’re driving out to the Salton Sea today for inspection.” (Lilac Solutions has been linked with the Salton Sea and an investment by Bill Gates.)

Before you believe the hype, a little perspective…

Cuba Beverage Company has a history of name and business description changes. (See them here on the company’s OTC Markets profile page.) It has one full-time employee and zero revenue

I won’t try to predict whether a merger will happen or not. Just remember, 99% of OTC companies fail.

Here’s the CUBV one-year chart…

CUBV spiked 44% in 15 minutes after the Salton Sea tweet. It hit a 52-week high of $0.043 before pulling back. I’m watching for potential dip buys into any big morning panic. But I’ll also watch for more spiking with volume and, ideally, a news catalyst.

I traded CUBV on August 27 and 31 thanks to StocksToTrade’s Breaking News Chat.** The most recent was a $542 win after the company tweet. See details of all my CUBV trades here.*

Lightwave Logic Inc. (NASDAQ: LWLG)

Lightwave Logic also featured on my top penny stocks list and weekly update. The company is developing electro-optic photonic devices using organic polymers. Think faster data transmission. Hopefully, it leads to faster Wi-Fi. (I’m always in search of faster Wi-Fi.)

LWLG gained roughly 25% on August 27 news that the company is uplisting to the Nasdaq today. It gained another 16% on Monday.

Here’s the LWLG one-year chart…

LWLG is a classic example of my 7-step framework. It went full supernova in late June. Since then it’s done a #4, #5, and #6. You can learn a lot from it. Study the chart and read this post, especially if you missed it.

I’m watching LWLG for potential dip buys into any big morning panic. Once it starts trading on the Nasdaq, it will be available to more traders/investors. And that means it will trade differently. The question is, how will the market view the uplisting?

Metal Arts Co., Inc. (OTCPK: MTRT)

Metal Arts is a shell company. In the past, it was in the metal fabrication business.

On August 30, the company announced a change in control and new management…

“[…] as a result of a private sale of 7,665,000 shares of common stock of MTRT, control of MTRT passed to Medium, Inc., a company incorporated under the laws of South Korea.

A new board of directors of MTRT, consisting of Messrs. Pan Jong Kim, Kiwoon Biak, and Yunho Chung, were appointed.”

Read the full press release here.

Check out the MTRT one-year chart…

MTRT spiked 630% on August 30 before pulling back to close up 348%. On August 31, it hit a new 52-week high of $1.19. Thanks to a StocksToTrade Breaking News alert I traded it for a $774 win on August 31.*

I’m watching MTRT for potential dip buys into any big panic, ideally at the open. I’ll also watch to see how the change of control plays out with Twitter promoters. Again, ride the hype but don’t believe it.

Gex Management Inc. (OTCPK: GXXM)

Gex Management Inc. is a business management services provider.

At the time of writing, GXXM is up 900% in August. It hit a six-month high of 10 cents per share on August 30 before pulling back. The most recent news is the company’s 10-Q quarterly report filed on August 23.

Check out the GXXM 100-day chart below

GXXM is relatively thinly traded. It needs more volume, ideally with a solid news catalyst. I’m watching for potential dip buys into any big panic. But I’d like to see it trend higher and pick up momentum first.

That’s it for the best penny stocks to watch for September 2021. Here are some tips on choosing stocks for your watchlist. Also, some answers to frequently asked questions…

How to Use This Penny Stocks Watch List

how to use this penny stock watchlist

Keep in mind that my strategies involve trading some of the fastest moving, most volatile stocks in the entire market. That said, some of the stocks on this list could be completely out of play by the time you read this. (Yes, even after only one day, stocks sometimes leave my list.)

The point is … don’t use this list as a signal to buy any stock. I don’t put stocks on my watchlist based on fundamentals. It’s not that I don’t look at fundamentals. But I’m not gonna lie to you. (Like so many other ‘top penny stocks to watch’ articles.) I won’t tell you to buy and hold a stock because “the market is undervaluing this stock.”

Frankly, that kind of thinking with penny stocks is … total BS. Most penny stocks fail. Just like most traders — roughly 90% — lose. So use this list — and each of my monthly penny stocks to watch lists — as a tool for learning to create your own watchlist.

Can You Trade Penny Stocks?

If you’re brand new to penny stocks a great place to start is with my FREE penny stock guide.

Once you go through the entire guide, I suggest you read “The Complete Penny Stock Course” written by my student Jamil (I wrote the forward). That book answers so many of the most frequently asked questions that it blows my mind more people haven’t read it.

With the internet and online brokers, you can trade penny stocks from anywhere in the world. As far as the basic requirements, you only need a decent laptop, solid Wi-Fi, and a trading account. But don’t be fooled into thinking you’re gonna succeed if you jump right in.


Because 90%+ of traders lose. So be willing to invest in your education — because if you don’t, the market will make you pay a much higher price

Now for five tips on how to choose the best penny stocks to watch…

5 Tips on How to Choose the Best Penny Stocks to Watch

Tip #1: Look for Big Percent Gainers

My method of choosing which penny stocks to watch always starts here. At the end of every day — and again in premarket — I look for the biggest percent gainers. And that’s what I focus on. I’m not interested in stocks that aren’t on the move.

I use StocksToTrade stock scanning software. With 40+ built-in scans — some created specifically for my strategies — it’s amazing right out of the gate. Yes, you can also create custom scans. (Hint: when you start using the software there’s a bunch of training videos on how to set those up. Take advantage.)

Tip #2: Look for Big Volume

The next thing to look for when choosing the best penny stocks to watch is trading volume. Sometimes a stock makes a big percent gain, but the trading volume is so low it doesn’t make sense to trade it. One of the top penny stocks to watch this month, Rivex Technology, is tough to trade because the volume is so low.

So after I find the big percent gainers, I organize them according to trading volume. Be aware of dollar volume traded, too. If you have a true penny stock trading at 2 cents a share, and it trades one million shares, that’s still only $20K. You have to be meticulous.

Tip #3: Look for a News Catalyst

The next thing I look for when choosing penny stocks to watch is what’s making it move? Is there a press release announcing a new contract? What about positive earnings? In biotech and pharma penny stocks you might see news of test results. Read this post to learn more about catalysts.

(Also read chapter II.7 Understanding Catalysts in “The Complete Penny Stock Course.” If you already have the book … it starts on page 183. If you don’t have it … get it now.)

Tip #4: Look at the Long-Term Chart

When you’re trying to find the best penny stocks to watch, it’s easy to get fooled by one-day or one-time spikers. So look at long-term charts to see if the stock has a history of multi-day runs or has gone supernova in the past.

Which long-term charts? As many as you have time for, really. But at the very least, look at the one-year chart. I like to look back a couple of years depending on the stock and the news. If the stock trades a certain way when the company announces a big contract, I want to know.

This might sound a little strange if you’re new to penny stocks. But if you want to understand which penny stocks to watch, one of the best ways is to see what others are watching. Or, more accurately, hyping.

Yes, Twitter has become a vehicle for influence with stock traders. Want to know which penny stocks are being heavily shorted because they’re up 50%? Check out Twitter. Use StocksToTrade because the scanner is built-in. All you have to do is open the Twitter scanner and, voila, you get a running feed of stock tweets. And you can customize the feed if you like.

Frequently Asked Questions About Penny Stocks

frequently asked questions about penny stocks to watch

I get a lot of questions from students. Thing is, my students already accept that penny stocks provide a massive opportunity. And they’re studying to learn the strategies and rules.

But there are a lot of misconceptions about penny stocks. And I want to address a few of those now…

What Are Penny Stocks?

Penny stocks trade for $5 or less per share. These are the stocks of micro- and nano-cap companies. Many trade on the OTC markets, but you can find many penny stocks on the big exchanges like the NYSE and Nasdaq.

Are Penny Stocks Worth it?

Penny stocks are suitable as trading vehicles but not long-term investments. Most penny stock companies eventually fail.

Are Penny Stocks Dangerous?

All trading involves risk. If you are willing to learn appropriate patterns, rules, and strategies, penny stocks are no more dangerous than other trading instruments.

How to Watch Penny Stocks?

1.) Focus on big percent gainers. 2.) Look for high volume 3.) Search for a news catalyst 4.) Look for a history of spikeability on the long term chart. 5. Use a scanner like StocksToTrade. (StocksToTrade was designed for penny stocks.)

If Most Penny Stock Companies Fail, Why Not Just Short Sell?

Because it’s a very dangerous, overcrowded game right now. The level of risk so many moron newbie short sellers take these days is unconscionable. It’s completely crazy.

Of course, you can be successful as a short-seller. Many of my top students focus on short selling and I’ve personally made millions from short selling. But the number of messages I get almost daily from short-sellers getting caught in short squeezes is … scary.

How Much Money Do I Need to Get Started?

I’m going to say, again, invest in your education first. It doesn’t take a huge amount of money to get started trading. Different brokers have different account minimum requirements. (I use these brokers and avoid offshore brokers altogether.)

But the market will make you pay more if you aren’t prepared. Preparation is key. The stock market is a battlefield, so arm yourself accordingly. Keep in mind that my top students all studied hard over time to get consistently profitable. Tim Grittani — arguably the best penny stock trader in the world — didn’t make anything for nine months.

So before you fund a trading account, fund your knowledge account. If you’re not quite ready for the Trading Challenge, try Pennystocking Silver. It gives you access to more than 6,000 video lessons. (You also get access as a Trading Challenge student, of course.)

Penny stocks are super high-risk investments that aren't suitable for all investors. Then practice what you've learned with our free stock market simulation.

Here are some penny stocks to keep an eye on:

VTVTvTv Therapeutics Inc.
AXSMAxsome Therapeutics Inc.
ALQAAlliqua Biomedical Inc.
ADILAdial Pharmaceuticals Inc.
BTAIBioXcel Therapeutics Inc.

Penny stocks can also be called micro-cap stocks. While the latter are categorized based on their   market capitalization, penny stocks are classified as such based on their price. A stock with a market cap between $50 and $300 million is generally considered a micro-cap. The SEC defines any stock under $5 as a penny stock.


Because these stocks are traded over-the-counter, there are a few added risks to consider.

They are not as liquid

Because there is a much more limited number of buyers and sellers in the OTCBB, penny stocks just aren’t as liquid. One way to remedy that is to sign up for a penny-stock service which will make finding trades much easier.

Less available information

There is much  less information  readily available for stocks traded OTC. It’s harder to make an informed decision about a company about which you know very little.


Penny stocks can be verily easily manipulated, sometimes illegally, to drive their prices up. These stocks attract many solicitors and scammers who trick unaware investors and make a lot of money doing so.


Penny stock market

Penny stocks’ low prices mean that they are super volatile investments. Just a small change in the stock price would have a huge effect overall. This is both the allure  and danger of penny stocks:  High Risk, High Return . A risk-taker would be enticed to buy a huge volume of shares of a cheap stock in hopes of winning big if that price goes up a bit. This is usually the plan when buying penny stocks. Investors will scoop up tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of shares of a stock that sells for very little per share. The idea is to get in quick and cheap, and get out fast and flush.

Many OTCBB companies are working crazy hard to climb their way up to the Nasdaq and NYSE status. Some companies on the OTCBB might be good quality, but penny stocks are just very high-risk investments and they aren't suitable for all investors. If you can't resist the lure of these micro cap stocks, at least make sure you do extensive research.

Where to Buy Penny Stocks

Penny stocks are often not traded on any major stock exchanges. Though the NYSE, NASDAQ and AMEX are home to some of the more established penny stock companies , they’re usually traded  over-the-counter  on the OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB) and pink sheets.


Penny Stock Software and Tools

Here are some super helpful tools to use when buying penny stocks:

Penny Stock Tips

  1. Ignore penny stock success stories that are touted on social media websites.
  2. Sell quickly .
  3. Focus only on penny stocks with high volume (at least 100,000 shares a day)
  4. Don’t fall in love with a stock!!!

Retail investors who do not have the billions of dollars that institutional investors have access to often look towards penny stocks as an entry into the world of investing. This strategy often proves to be fruitful since research on small companies and the growth potential they offer is a tried and tested way of understanding how the market functions. Although it is not often that penny stocks lead investors to the next, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) or Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), they do offer the chance for short-term handsome returns owing to their volatility.

To put this into perspective, consider how market giants like GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME), AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AMC), Novavax, Inc. (NASDAQ: NVAX), and Cassava Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAVA) were all in the penny stock range not too long ago. These stocks have gained 3,277%, 590%, 54%, 3,043% over the past twelve months, respectively, representing the explosive growth potential that good penny stocks can offer to those investors who are willing to take the time to analyze small companies.

Some of the best penny stocks to buy now include Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG), IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE: IAG), and CarLotz, Inc. (NASDAQ: LOTZ), among others discussed in detail below. According to news platform CNBC, the explosion in stock volumes over the past two years has also helped push penny stocks higher. A CNBCreport from January 2021 highlighted how the average daily volume of the market has gone up from 7 billion in 2019, to almost 11 billion in 2020, and stood at over 14 billion at the beginning of 2021.

The influx of retail investors and the equities they favor have had a huge impact on the overall market dynamics. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey’s research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and July 2021 our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 186.1%, vs. 100.1% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 115 percentage points (see the details here). That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.

Penny Stocks to Watch for October 2021

Last month, I talked about how to handle investment losses gracefully, reaping the hard lessons of the stock market as you re-assess your trading goals. Almost as important as coping with loss is the way you handle your successes.

If you have invested thoughtfully in a well-researched stock (or even if you've just encountered a real stroke of good luck), you may find yourself with more money than you know what to do with. This "victory lap" period can be an intensely dangerous time for investors, however. Many forget all the hard-won wisdom they've learned down the line and start throwing their money into any stock with an exciting story.

Instead of throwing caution to the wind, put even more of your time into due diligence. Trust your instincts, but stay cautious, avoid getting greedy, and keep a close eye on those fundamentals rather than the narrative a company's Investment Relations firm is selling.

Below, you'll find some updates on some intriguing and high-potential equities, as well as a few new ones I've been looking into. May they bring you even greater profits as you proceed along your investment journey.

Some of the set-ups I describe below may no longer be relevant or intact as of the time you read this article. Please conduct your own due diligence. Many stocks mentioned here were also discussed in the Peter Leeds Newsletter. Peter may own shares in some of the investments mentioned, in which case that fact will be clearly indicated. Please note that penny stocks are notoriously volatile.

First, Some Updates


I introduced BRF S.A. (BRFS) to readers of this column in September, and the ticker's activity since then has been nothing short of ridiculous. We're talking intense volatility here, just as I had predicted last month—but even I wasn't expecting this much of a rollercoaster. 

The good news is that the bulls seems to have wrested control away from the bears, at least for now. As of the end of September, when I was writing this update, BRFS was ultimately up 8% over the past month and 12.35% over the past week—all on the back of zero news from the company itself.

I think it's likely that we'll see more volatility from this Brazilian food company, but I remain optimistic on its prospects given strong financial ratios and still-much-cheaper valuation than its peers. In particular, if it manages to climb above the $5.20 resistance level, BRFS shareholders could see some substantial gains ahead.

Sigma Labs, Inc. (SGLB)

In contrast to BRFS, Sigma Labs, Inc. (SGLB) had a hard September, heading up to $4 by the middle of the month but then careening downward again. This resulted in an overall 7.5% drop from the time I featured the stock in this column until the last few days of the month.

Basically, investors were mildly enthused by a contract win. However, the excitement wore off, and now Sigma Labs stock is stuck at around $3.15 levels.

Despite my disappointment that its initial climb wasn't more sustainable, I believe that it's too early to give up on SGLB. The earnings per share (EPS) figures are simply too excellent to ignore (65% growth this year, 35% growth projected for next year), and the balance sheet is rock-solid.

In addition, with 80% of manufacturers purportedly looking to increase their use of 3D printing technologies, Sigma Labs could be a major winner over the next year.

Entravision Communications Corporation (EVC)

Since I included Entravision Communications Corporation (EVC) in the June 2021 edition of my "Penny Stocks to Watch" column, it's had a fantastic run from around $4.73/share to a peak of $8.11 at the beginning of September. (That's an approximately 70% theoretical profit for readers.) Even at its current price of $7.11, shareholders are looking pretty smart right now.

In my opinion, Entravision's penny stock days are likely behind it, barring some catastrophic event. Its moving averages are pointing to a "Strong Buy" signal, and its relative strenth index (RSI) has returned to normal (i.e., not overbought) levels.

One potential issue is that EVC is doing SO well—as with, for example, its consolidated adjusted EBITDA ascending 932% over the prior-year period, as of the second quarter of 2021—that it will be difficult for the stock to continue hitting this momentum.

The kind of triple-digit revenue and EPS that Entravision is seeing could turn into what Wall Street analysts call "tough comps," meaning the stock may struggle to return to its previous highs and skittish investors could consequently abandon it if/when its results grow less exciting.

While I believe it's highly possible that EVC will continue to climb by at least 20% more over the next few months or so on the back of its global expansion plans, it looks for now as if it may be taking a breather. Lower entry points may be ahead, so watch this one closely.

Some New Ones

PaySign, Inc. (PAYS)

PaySign, Inc. (PAYS) is undoubtedly one of the strangest penny stocks I've come across in my many years combing through these low-priced equities. It quite literally deals in "blood money," providing prepaid gift cards to American plasma donation centers, which subsequently use them as incentives to bring in potential donors.

The blood garnered from American donation centers is often sold to pharmaceutical companies and then used in medical treatments for hemophilia and autoimmune disorders, as well as for chemotherapy. Two-thirds of the global blood supply comes from the United States, and sales of blood plasma products come to around $25 billion per year.

In 2020, plasma donations in the U.S. dropped around 20%, and PaySign's revenue suffered given that it makes money from the fees on its prepaid cards. As of the end of 2020, the group's sales had plummeted around 30% on an annual basis. Meanwhile, the world is facing a shortage of many important plasma-based medications, without which people will most certainly die.

Even though the delta variant is still a major concern, there are many signs that PaySign's plasma business will recover in 2021 and 2022. (In fact, the company says that donations are already recovering significantly on a month-to-month basis.) The government stimulus will end or has already ended in most states; childcare has opened back up; and people who are afraid of contacting COVID are likely already double-vaccinated.

The company is therefore expecting a large resurgence of business in the third quarter of 2021 and beyond, to the tune of "a range of $29 million to $32 million, reflecting growth of 20% to 32%, and adjusted EBITDA of $350,000 to $1.9 million," per management's comments in the second quarter 2021 earnings call.

This represents tremendous upside potential for PaySign, in my opinion, and combined with a strong balance sheet and price-to-free cash flow (P/FCF) ratio of 5.04, I believe that the company is almost certainly undervalued.

Alto Ingredients, Inc. (ALTO)

Alto Ingredients, Inc. (ALTO) is a penny stock right now, but I don't expect it to stay that way for very long. Not with projected EPS growth next year at 71.54% and a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5.32, both of which suggest that 2022 will be an excellent year for ALTO shareholders. And not with—in my opinion—a recession-proof suite of products involving "specialty alcohols," which are used in such diverse (and in some cases essential) goods as cosmetics, cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, animal feed, pet food, and biodiesel feedstock.

Like many of its low-priced peers, ALTO is a turnaround story. Despite its large roster of blue-chip clients—with household names like Chevron, Cargill, and Procter & Gamble among them—its five-year revenue history is dispiriting.

More recently, however, the company has been pivoting from an ethanol manufacturer to a specialty alcohols producer. Its sales have subsequently shot up over the past two quarters, climbing approximately 30% and 35%, respectively.

Unfortunately, Alto Ingredients' cost of goods sold (COGS) has also increased over those periods by roughly the same percentages. I believe that this is a necessary stage in ALTO's journey toward sustainable growth, however, as the group undertakes to transition its facilities toward producing specialty alcohols.

The full fruit of its turnaround may take a few more months to appear. But once potential shareholders get a load of all of ALTO's abundant potential, I think its prices may skyrocket—and relatively soon, at that.
