Although Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will likely present some opposition to stimulus legislation, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been pushing for a deal that would assist Americans before the presidential election concludes. Investors and traders may be banking on this possibility.

CCNC stock forecast

According to Yahoo Finance, CCNC co-chairman Xu Wei has made a large insider purchase for $955,000 in U.S. shares at $1 apiece sometime during the last year. He also made other purchases of company shares throughout the year, at a much lower price point than what was reached by CCNC stock on Monday.

Yahoo Finance also points out that CCNC insiders own about 52 percent of the company's shares. Whereas high insider ownership may be a positive sign, it's also worth noting that the company hasn't turned a profit over the past year.
