There have been numerous small cap stocks that have provided investors with profitable returns in 2015. Penny stocks are historically known for their volatile price movement versus blue chip stocks for instance, which traditionally take longer to reap the benefit. Now with that being said, the higher the volatility of the stock the higher the risk you are taking in investing in that particular company and with penny stocks this year, the reward has paid off for those willing to take higher levels of risk. Enviro-Serv Inc (OTCMKTS:EVSV), Arrayit Corp (OTCMKTS:ARYC), and PositiveID Corp (OTCMKTS:PSID) have gained significant attention in their respected industries.
Enviro-Serv, Inc. has made key announcements that have fueled its impressive 650% run from lows of $0.0002 to highs of $0.0015. In May, EVSV announced that it had signed a franchising deal with PestMaster Services for the Tampa Bay area. On June 11th the company put out news stating they have collected necessary funding to close on their deal with PestMaster ahead of schedule. EVSV in the last week has seen trading levels between $0.0007-$0.001 as anticipation has continued to increase with regard to closing the franchising deal on or before June 30th. The Company originally anticipated closing this in mid-July.
Arrayit Corporation a life science technology leader, has also seen a strong run in the last 30 days, up 156.7%. The company entered into an agreement on May 13th with Vivos to supply custom Arrayit blood card technology to Vivos’ Global Genome Vault, the only private human DNA vault in the world according to the Company. On June 18th ARYC closed the day up 196.15% in addition to trading over 2000% above its 30day avg volume. In the most recent quarterly filing, Arrayit showed gross revenues of $787,038 with gross margin of $384,123; 48%.
PostiveID Corporation has recently sparked more attention in the market after they entered a marketing agreement with Directview Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:DIRV). The stock has seen a 131.8% run over the last 5 days. “We are excited to enter into this co marketing agreement with DirectView to include video surveillance solutions and body worn cameras to our line of first responder products,” stated William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID. “Through collaborating with companies like DirectView we accomplish two important goals: adding synergistic products and leveraging the sales channels of both companies to maximize our efforts and achieve better results.”
The Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P all closed green on June 18th. With the market seeing record highs in 2015 this uptrend could be a driving force for the latest uptrend that many of these small cap stocks have seen over the last month.
