Bottom Line: Nasdaq penny stocks undoubtedly move much slower than those on the OTC in terms of percentage gains. Although PWER is the most undervalued of the three due its being dependent on the solar industry for growth, CLWR could see an immediate pop should a deal with Softbank come to the table in the coming weeks.
