HH The 50 Most Illiquid Stocks


Naturally, the above list is not exhaustive and with a little searing one can surely find far more "illiquid" stocks based on any one particular definition of the word. However, the above list is likely a good place to start when analyzing the names which hedge funds would likely dabble in when trying to recreate HFT-type stop hunts at a major level as the preponderance of other illiquid names are simply too small for hedge funds to take a stake, as such they are at best PA trading vehicles.

As a result one possible trade idea would be to put on a long-term straddle (preferably while VIX is still cheap) on some of the above names, and hope for a volatility shake out, either to the up, or downside.

With the amount of liquidity packets in the broader market, and the sense that something big may be just over the horizon, which is now even starting to dent the broader market's relentless buying spree for the past 3 years, finding a pool of potentially heightened volatility and trading in advance of implied vol becoming realized, is probably not the worst possible trade idea.
