Medical Properties Trust Inc (NYSE:MPW) is up 0.3% at $4.76 at last check, despite a broader market pullback. Shares yesterday closed firmly below penny stock territory, after hovering on both sides of $5 since late September. The equity is down 57% so far this year, and yesterday marked its biggest single-day percentage drop since Sept. 21, with pressure stemming from its 20-day moving average.
