AGRITEK HLDGS INC COM USD0.0001 (OTCMKTS:AGTK) is a penny play that has started to garner attention as the stock bounces up the chart in a parabolic ascent, only recently succumbing to a break in momentum. The stock is still up 500% since early September, even after its jarring break at the end of last week, so we still consider the rise to be the story here.
Traders will note just shy of 270% piled on for shareholders of the listing during the trailing month. This is emblematic of the stock. Shares of AGTK stock have a track record that includes a number of dramatic bounces. Furthermore, the company has seen interest climb, with an increase in recent trading volume of just under 300% beyond its prior sustained average level.
