Penny stocks have so far in April, performed quite well. With momentum continuing to grow, investors are always looking for the best penny stocks to buy. Heading into May, businesses are beginning to recover, fueled by vaccination rates and a declining number of COVID-19 cases. For this reason, investors are looking at penny stocks of all types.
These penny stock watchlists are based on the future potential of companies that could benefit from economic reopening. This has led investors to now position themselves in stocks under $5 that they believe will benefit from the in-person business. Additional government aid has led many to believe that we are at the beginning stages of an economic growth period.
“The unprecedented amount of stimulus from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury along with the pent-up savings rate and demand by consumers is sure to unleash massive economic growth akin to a post-war boom, or as some have said another Roaring ’20s.”James Demmert, a founder, and managing partner at Main Street Research
Future expectations for a company play a large role in the price action of its stock. In short, if there is good news, the price can go up, and if there is bad news, the price can go down. Now of course this is broken down even further by expert analysts who are paid to predict a stock’s trajectory.[Read More] Penny Stocks on Robinhood to Watch After the Coinbase IPO
With a penny stock, however, due to its smaller market cap and lower price per share, prices move more quickly and can in some cases be even less predictable. However, with a trading education, investors can have a better chance at seeing heightened profits. For both experienced and those who know how to trade penny stocks, looking and short and long term trends could be beneficial.
Here’s a look at three penny stocks to consider adding to your watchlist on the road to economic recovery.3 Penny Stocks For Your Reopening WatchlistMuscle Maker Inc. (NASDAQ: GRIL)

“This funding when closed will allow Muscle Maker to continue to execute our non-traditional location growth strategy as well as provide the ability to identify and acquire additional concepts that complement our business model like the recently announced acquisition of Superfit Foods.”CEO of Muscle Maker, Michael Roper
Along with these steps towards future growth, GRIL has also become open to accepting Bitcoin as an alternative form of payment.
