Amesite (NASDAQ:AMST) stock is rocketing higher on Thursday after providing materials to investors from a recent presentation.

The materials come from the company’s Jan. 18 presentation at the Sidoti January Micro-Cap Virtual Conference. These materials cover the latest company financial details, as well as its plans for the coming years.

For example, Amesite notes that cash on hand as of September 2022 is sitting at $8.1 million while the company currently has zero debt. In addition to that, it’s laying out a path to profitability with its branded online learning programs.

Amesite works in multiple markets with these programs. That includes universities, museums and businesses. It notes universities are expected to report revenue of $103 billion in 2023, museums’ annual education spending is $2 billion and businesses spend more than $1 billion per year on employee training.

Investor Reactions Lift AMST Stock

Following the release of this presentation, AMST stock is seeing heavy trading. This has some 2 million shares of the company’s stock on the move as of this writing. To put that in perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is closer to 300,000 shares.

This heavy trading is likely a sign of investor confidence in the company. However, traders will also keep in mind that AMST is a penny stock. That means it experiences volatility easily.

AMST stock is up 45.7% as of Thursday morning.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
