It appears from the action of the last three days that Sauer Energy (OTC: SENY) might finally have the wind at its back. Shares of Sauer Energy have risen over 200% since the market opening on Tuesday morning when the company announced it had secured $5 million in equity financing with St. George Investments. The news propelled buyers to drive share prices higher. As of the closing price today, the stock went from $0.15 to $0.315 during the last three trading sessions. Traders have to wonder how much longer can the wind blow at this pace.
After seeing Sauer Energy stock tack on impressive gains on Tuesday and Wednesday, traders could not be faulted for signs of shyness prior to the start of trading today. Buyers, however, grabbed shares right from the opening bell with shares gaining a few pennies out of the gate. By the end of the first full hour of trading, share prices had jumped to their highs on the day when the stock traded for just a hair under $0.39. Traders settled into a tug of war between buyers and sellers for the next several hours as the stock traded in a narrow range. In the final hour of trading, buyers gave ground and the stock closed up less than a penny for a gain of 2%. Volume exceeded 1 million shares on the day, which far outpaced the daily average of 100,000.
Since hitting an annual high of $0.95 last December, Sauer Energy stock has slid backwards to a fresh 52-week low in July when shares traded for $0.10. With little news to blow a favorable wind, the stock showed little movement over the last five weeks until Tuesday morning. This week has also seen some of the heaviest volume in months for Sauer Energy shares.
