Toro (NASDAQ:TORO) stock is on the rise Thursday despite a lack of news from the tanker operator today.
Instead, it looks like heavy trading explains what’s moving shares of TORO stock higher today. As of this writing, more than 736,000 shares of the company’s stock have changed hands. That’s already above its daily average trading volume of about 678,000 shares.
Outside of this, there’s no news that explains why TORO stock is climbing higher on Thursday. However, investors will note that its low stock price and market capitalization open the company up to volatility. That means they may want to avoid the shares considering the recent activity.
One Possible Reason TORO Stock Is Up
It may be possible that TORO stock is gaining today due to a misunderstanding. While Toro doesn’t have any recent news, Toro (NYSE:TTC), a completely different company, does. This Toro is preparing to release its latest earnings report this morning.
It could be that investors have been buying up shares of TORO stock thinking they’re making an investment in TTC. If that’s the case, it may result in shares of TORO taking a beating later today once the mistake is realized.
TORO stock is up 37.7% as of Thursday morning.
