3 Top Penny Stocks to Add to Your Watchlist Right Now
Although both penny stocks and blue chips have rebounded after yesterday’s selloff, many investors have fear surrounding the future. The inflation that has occurred as a result of the pandemic, billions in stimulus, and an economic recovery, is causing major market volatility with penny stocks.
“We’re going to have this push and pull where we get these headline numbers that shock the markets a bit, like with inflation yesterday.” And although inflation is wreaking havoc on world markets, many penny stocks investors tend to thrive in stormy waters.

This is due to the common strategy of day-trading or swing-trading. Because swing traders look for both high volume and large price swings, volatility is key to making money with penny stocks.
So, while it may seem scary at first, having a developed strategy can be profitable for some. Considering this, let’s take a look at three penny stocks to watch that could be inflation proof.
3 Penny Stocks to Watch Right Now
New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc. (NYSE: EDU)
New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc. is an education company that is based in China. This company offers test preparation services, K-12 AST, and other educational services. Its test preparation courses are often taken by students that want to take entrance exams that are needed in the United States, China, and several other countries around the world.
Recently, The Wall Street Journal reported that China wants to issue over a dozen licenses to educational companies. These licenses would allow the companies to continue after-school tutoring. This follows news from four months ago regarding a ban on for-profit tutoring that caused Chinese education companies to turn to a non-profit business model. This new policy will end the confusion that has resulted in companies losing billions of dollars in value.
This new licensing proposal states that these companies still cannot operate their after-school tutoring services on a non-profit basis. But, the proposal also states that the companies can offer other courses on a for-profit basis, such as tutoring for adults. The government will set a cap on the amount that these companies can charge for services. It will be interesting to see how this new proposal impacts New Oriental moving forward. It’s also worth considering that shares of EDU stock managed to climb by roughly 7% during today’s trading. Noting this new info, will EDU be on your list of penny stocks to watch in November?
