Penny stocks are often stated as risky investments that hardly pay off. Admittedly, there is fact to this, but with the right knowledge and tactics, it is possible to earn a significant amount of gain in penny stocks. Simply said, a penny stock is an equity that trades at a low price.
Irrespective of the name, penny stocks usually are priced over a penny, occupying a price range at or close to $1, though some are priced a fraction of a penny. Often referred to as micro-cap equities, the Securities & Exchange Commission classifies these types of securities as being $5 or less. Over-the-counter stocks are NOT listed on any of the formal exchanges.
So, penny stocks frequently fit in this segment, though many dodge this category. Over-the-counter (OTC) equities are stated to be risky as they aren’t contingent to the listing and reporting requirements of the reputed commodity exchanges.

Penny shares can be listed on NASDAQ or other known stock exchanges, although many more cannot be found there. 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. Look out, however, because frequently shareholders may have trouble getting a decent amount of details about penny stocks. These kinds of shares tend to be latest in news, with almost no track record for investors research.
In addition, penny stocks show lack of market activity, with poor liquidity, making them difficult to sell. Poor liquidity results in penny stocks to be open to price influence.
A shady trader can simply buy large sums of shares, temporarily leading up the price, crafting artificial demand.
