Ocuphire Pharma Inc (NASDAQ:OCUP), meanwhile, is plummeting back into penny stock territory, after the company appointed Rick Rodgers as its interim CEO. The shares are down 20.9% to trade at $4.86 at last glance. Since the start of the year, OCUP has tacked on 36.7%. 



How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
