Potential Catalysts / Reasons for the Hype:

  • The news about the US planning to open most of Atlantic territorial waters to wind farms. BWEN appears to be perfectly positioned to exploit the country’s infrastructure investment and the global mega clean energy transfer movement.
  • The company recently received over $12 million in new tower orders from multiple wind turbine customers. Including these new orders, Broadwind sold approximately 25% of its full-year 2022 optimal tower production capacity. Broadwind is also expecting to receive additional orders for 2022 production capacity over the coming months.

READ BEFORE TRADING PENNY STOCKS: The allure of penny stocks lies in their potential to deliver massive gains in a short period of time. However, in exchange for that opportunity, most penny stocks carry tremendous risk. They can be extremely volatile and are susceptible to “pump and dump” schemes and fraud.

Unlike regular stocks, the financial condition of most penny stock companies can be extremely difficult to analyze, as the majority of such stocks are traded on over-the-counter (OTC) exchanges, which are typically less transparent and less regulated than the major exchanges. In fact, in the penny stock space, it’s often easier to spot warning signs and red flags than it is to identify a sound investment. Nevertheless, we do our best to identify short-term trade opportunities in this exciting space because we know some of our readers are looking for high-risk, high-reward ideas. We just urge you to make sure you fully understand the risks before making any of these trades.
