Freight Technologies (NASDAQ:FRGT) stock is flying higher by more than 120% today after receiving a $2.25 price target from Chardan Capital Markets analyst Brian Dobson. This price target implies 300%-plus upside. Previously, Chardan had not provided coverage for FRGT stock.
This boost in price has been well-needed by shareholders. Earlier this month, Nasdaq notified the company that it was in noncompliance with the $1 minimum bid price requirement for being listed on the exchange. Now, the company has 180 days to have a closing bid price of $1 for 10 consecutive days. If Freight fails to meet the $1 requirement, it could file for a deadline extension for an additional 180 days. To be eligible for the second extension, it must provide a plan to regain compliance.
One remedy to resolve this situation is a reverse stock split. If Freight Technologies chooses to do this, the split must be completed by April 10, 2023.
Earlier this year, the company released its Fr8Private Fleet product. This product seeks to modernize logistics and allows parties to pay for and receive payments for a “predetermined amount of load capacity over a stated period of time.” Fr8Private is available on Freight’s business-to-business platform and can attract carriers to use the platform. In late October, Freight announced that Kimberly Clark de México had a signed a “two-year commitment” for Fr8Private.

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.
