English term or phrase: thinly traded stock
The Court of Appeals upheld the removal of a corporate director who had caused the corporation to purchase from him thinly traded stock that resulted in a personal gain of ...

Does a standard term exist in English? Somehow a translation of "duenn gehandelte Aktien" does not appear to make much sense to me.

Any help is appreciated!

wenig gehandelte Aktien


Explanation:
Routledge übersetzt 'thin' (STOCK) mit begrenzt, und 'thin capitalization' mit

'wenig gehandelte Aktien' bringen auch nur 4 Treffer, ist nach meiner Meinung aber eine akkurate Übersetzung
