Highlights

  • The ASX Small Ordinaries index surged 1.59% to 2,987 by 12:30 PM AEST today.
  • OZM, SBW and ACW are three ASX penny stocks racking up high gains today.
  • Investors must do proper due diligence before investing in penny stocks.    

On the last day of the week, the Australian market opened the session on a positive note with the benchmark ASX 200 trading 1.46% up to reclaim the 7,000 mark as intense selling pressure which persisted throughout the week seems to be abating.

Small caps are also participating in the rally as investors are trying to capitalise on volatile but already beaten-down stocks. The ASX Small Ordinaries index surged 1.59% to 2,987 by 12:30 PM AEST. In that vein, let us have a look at three ASX penny stocks that are rallying high today.
