A major percentage of penny stocks are listed on the so-named ‘pink sheets’, i.e., daily news of OTC shares. They can even be seen on the ‘Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board.’ Commodities listed on the OTCBB fail to fulfill the listing guidelines of the NYSE or other known exchanges, although they are mandated to file financial statements with known regulators, such as the SEC. Penny shares are inexpensive, thus attractive to shareholders who lack the funds to buy comparatively expensive blue-chip stocks from large firms.

Penny stocks boast immense profit potential. Because these stocks trade cheap, even a slight jump in price turns to be profitable.
