Penny Stocks that Beat Yesterdays Sell-Off: APSN, VSRV, CFAWF, WWBP and AVRO

With the markets closed today, it’ll be fun to see what happens to these stocks on Monday.

Since the July 4th Holiday is upon us, let's start out with an anomaly from yesterday where a penny stock rose 2,300%. That's right, 2,300%.

Applied Neurosolutions (APSN) closed on July 1st at $0.03 and its close on July 2nd was $0.60. With a 3-Month average daily trading volume of 10,771 shares, APSN more than doubled its trading volume. APSN has a market cap of $2 million on four million shares outstanding. Have a look at the amazing charts below.

The giant hiccup was propelled by the June 29, 2009, 1-for-30 reverse split of APSN's common stock. Applied NeuroSolutions' has a long-term agreement with Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM) that grants APSN the exclusive licensing rights to commercialize Dr. Peter Davies' neurodegenerative disease related discoveries. 

APSN is noted for its therapeutic program developed by Dr. Peter Davies based on the common pathway leading to the development of abnormal, destructive brain structures characteristic of Alzheimer's.

It will interesting to see what happens when 'normal' trading resumes on Monday.
