XBIO Has One Of The Lowest Floats On The Nasdaq Capital Markets Right Now.

If you look at the statement below, it says they only have 870 532 shares outstanding, which is extremely low.  This is why the stock price has experienced such vast intraday spikes as of late. SAEX is another good example of what is possible when a company splits their stock this low.  Anything close to 1 million seems to be a magic number

SAEX immediately before it halts.

They also say that 66.7% of the float is controlled by insiders, further reducing the available shares in the secondary markets.

If you do the math, this means there is only 289 887 shares available.  Below is a table of the significant shareholders.

It’s an amazing situation.  If you can find a stock with a float as low as this, you should watch it very closely.  From our experience, anything under 1 million will almost certainly result in some big percentage gains, but the hard part is catching it before everybody else.

Situations like these don’t come along very often, and when they do, they don’t last long.  If you see something like this in the future, don’t wait around, because by the time the price begins to move on any kind of measurable volume, it will usually have spiked by double digit percentage points, like what happened with SAEX.
