Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG) shares rallied in late April from .70 cents to $1.90 in 30 days, and this abrupt technical, high volume rally, created liquidity for investors, but also brought volatility. Keep in mind (look at the price movement below) shares started the year at .60 cents, so even the recent pullbacks to $1.25 keep shares up more than 100% for the year.
Stocks like these rarely stop at +100% once they get momentum, and as a rule they feed on themselves, hence the name momentum stocks!! Expanded capability within connectivity for optical communication is experiencing a quiet storm as other sectors like blockchain, digital currency and cannabis get attention. But a sector in play, is a sector in play, and the volume and price spikes always tell the story.
Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCMKTS:LWLG) is a development stage Company that is nearing commercialization of a portfolio of organic, nonlinear electro-optical and all-optical polymers (plastic), which have the ability to alter light waves for various optical applications. Initial use of this material is for the conversion of digital information into light pulses at speeds that are orders of magnitude faster than conventional materials, which are based on the nonlinear capabilities of inorganic materials.
In addition to developing materials for integration into customer contemplated designs, the Company is using these advanced materials as the basis for a series of proprietary, advanced integrated optical devices and sub-systems that have broad application in telecommunications, data communications and optical computing for applications in both military and commercial markets.

The company is focused on high-speed and telecommunications, and recently announced that it unveiled an aggressive strategy during its annual meeting of shareholders to address the 100Gbps market opportunity using its all-organic 25 Gps ridge waveguide modulator in a 4 channel architecture (4×25 Gbps). It also revealed initial simulation results that show that the company is also preparing to address the 400Gbps market with 50Gbps ridge waveguide modulators.
Michael Lebby, CEO of Lightwave Logic, provided an overview of the company’s plans to take to market its 25Gbps ridge waveguide modulator through optimizing both the electro-optic polymers and the photonic device design. He reviewed the 25 GHz modulator data that indicate the suitability of the company’s devices for 25Gbps applications. He also noted that the company had now entered into a contract with a packaging partner who has experience in high-speed telecommunications and data communications optoelectronic devices.
Dr. Lebby also presented market data demonstrating that the 100Gbps market is suited for Lightwave Logic’s all-organic ridge waveguide modulator. Dr. Lebby also presented preliminary modeling and simulations of modulators similar to the 25Gbps device that showed the potential to operate at 50Gbps. There are a number of approaches to address the growing demand by the industry for 400Gbps, and one solution that is gaining momentum in the market place is using 8 channels of 50Gbps.
Traders will note 87% tacked on to share pricing for the stock in the past week. This is emblematic of the stock. LWLG is a stock who’s past is littered with sudden rips. Furthermore, the stock has seen interest climb, with an increase in recent trading volume of just under 230% beyond its prior sustained average level.
Dr. Lebby commented, “The team has come a long way in the past 3 months with our 25Gbps modulator, and we are now laser-focused on moving the technology from prototype to marketplace. Our team is expanding with more world-class engineers being hired to accelerate development of 25Gbps all-organic ridge waveguide modulator, as well as hone the performance.”
The Bottom Line is stocks move for a reason, and it is not a mistake that LWLG shares are up 100%+ and have already shown they have more upside potential. I would watch these shares and pay specific attention to the volume. It seems if they trade more than a million shares per day they keep long and short term investors happy and at attention.
