As of this writing, more than 88.5 million shares of PEGY stock have changed hands. That’s a massive increase compared to its daily average trading volume of about 29.8 million shares.

Investors will also note that today’s movement builds on a recent rally. That saw shares of PEGY stock jump 47.5% higher on Wednesday with roughly 128.3 million shares traded.

What’s Behind the PEGY Stock Rally?

It’s worth mentioning that short interest in PEGY stock is 6,403,103 shares. That represents 10.18% of its float. This could be a sign that PEGY shares have been caught up in the recent meme stock rally and short squeeze.

PEGY being a penny stock also adds to this. That comes from its prior closing price of just 8 cents and its market capitalization of $7.834 million. Both of these open the stock up to volatility and manipulation by certain types of traders.

PEGY stock is up 57.3% as of Thursday morning. When markets closed yesterday, the company’s shares were still down 86.2% year-to-date.
