Bitcoin Climbs Above $7,000

Penny stocks looking to pounce on the cryptocurrency buzz are enjoying a renaissance triggered by Bitcoin’s new momentum.

For example, MGT Capital Investments Inc. -- which trades for less than 10 cents per share -- on Tuesday announced plans to resume Bitcoin mining operations, citing the cryptocurrency’s now 12-day rally to top $8,000. That pushed shares up as much as 15% on Tuesday, as traders funneled money back to the stock; market cap was about $16.2 million versus a 2017 peak of nearly $350 million.
