Top stock gainers today

The stocks below are today's top gainers based on 24-hour performance. This list also includes the largest losers for the same period.

To learn more about any one of the stocks you see above, search its ticker below.

Keep in mind that the biggest stock gainers today may be the worst-performing stocks tomorrow, and that past performance can't guarantee future results.

What's more, some of the stocks above could be penny stocks, which are stocks that trade for less than $5 per share. Because of their low price, it can be enticing for investors to buy lots of shares in penny stocks. But small changes in a penny stock's value can represent large gains or losses. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Securities and Exchange Commission have said penny stocks can be risky and should be approached with caution.

If you're looking to avoid such volatility and risk, consider investing via exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, instead. These vehicles spread your investment across various companies and assets to help keep you from putting all your eggs in one basket. A single investment in an S&P 500 ETF, for example, spreads your dollars across all 500 or so companies included on that list.
