Penny Stocks to Watch for September 2018

Alan Farley

Junior miners turned lower in sympathy with declining gold and silver contracts, while small biotech and medical diagnostic stocks picked up the slack, underpinned by sector funds probing new highs. September has a mixed reputation when it comes to small speculative plays, suggesting that traders focus their attention on penny stocks exhibiting the highest relative strength while avoiding falling knives that may face tax selling pressure in the fourth quarter. Low-priced energy stocks look like wild cards in this equation, with crude oil coming off lows while rising Middle East tensions add to sector buying power.
