Over the course of the past few days, there have been a number of penny stocks that had come onto the radars of investors. It may be a good time for investors to take an interest in some of those. Here is a look at four such stocks which had hit the radars of investors lately.

Redwood Scientific Technologies Inc (OTC: RSCI) – The stock had been in the sights of investors on Tuesday and it remains to be seen if it continues to hold its own after having rallied by 20% yesterday. The company came on to the news cycle yesterday after it announced that it had submitted a patent application for its advanced Oral Thin Film manufacturing system.

The patent application from Redwood Scientific Technologies Inc was an indication of the company’s focus on bringing about a revolution in the pharmaceutical industry through advanced drug delivery systems. The delivery system developed by the company would provide a new level of accuracy with regard to the administration of minuscule dosages of active ingredients.

XTM Inc (OTC: XTMIF) – Yesterday, the company was in the news cycle after it came up with an update with regards to its management cease trade order, that had been announced previously. The order had been granted by the Ontario Securities Commission.

The company had been delayed in filing the necessary documents due to a change of auditor that had happened recently.
