NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- YRC Worldwide (YRCW) and a handful of other stocks trading under $1 were slapped with a notice in March for failure to meet a bid price requirement laid out by the Nasdaq, although there is still time for these companies to regain compliance.
YRC Worldwide, like several other stocks, has less than six months to satisfy a Nasdaq listing rule that requires a stock to maintain a minimum bid price of $1. Investors in penny stocks like YRC Worldwide need to understand what options are available to the companies and what the future holds if the company they have invested in fails to regain the $1 price threshold.
If a stock closes below the $1 mark for 30 consecutive business days, it is granted a grace period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance with the Nasdaq's listing requirements. To regain compliance, a stock would have to close at or above $1 for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading sessions.
