A Low-priced, Speculative Security The definition of a penny stock varies depending on who you ask. Some consider any stock trading under $5 to be a penny stock while others… consider any stock trading under a dollar to be a penny stock. These stocks are often traded off of the major exchanges and are bought and sold as Pink Sheets or off the Bulletin Boards. There are large risks associated with speculating on penny stocks. They can be easily manipulated by large investors like hedge funds. The bid ask spread can be large and serve as a significant barrier to making a profit. Also, the lack of liquidity can make it difficult to get in and out of your investment and cause quick price fluctuations. One thing to think about is that very seldom if ever does a stock start off as a penny stock so the stock has already had some difficulties to get to where it is at now. Anyone investing in these stocks should consider it a speculative bet. Rewards could be significant but you could very well lose everything you invested.
How To Invest Wisely in Penny Stocks? \n. \nIf you are a new to investing, you have to get a lot of information about penny stocks, how to invest wisely in it, etc ...\n. …\n Very, very carefully \n. \nPenny stocks have to be watched like a hawk. They cost so little, even a small dip in their value can prove fatal. If you buy some stock for $35 per share and it loses $1, that's not too bad.

Investing wisely has a lot to do with knowing when to buy a penny stock and doing your Due Diligence. I answered many questions here related to this general question, make sur…e to review my past postings. I'll go over Due Diligence as a major focus in wise investing. Doing your Due Diligence, simply means doing your homework on a company before investing in its stock. You really want to look at the company's financial statements to see if the company is doing well. If it is on the verge of bankruptcy, you really should stay out of investing in it. Due Diligence can include, but is not limited to: -Reading past press releases by the company for positive or negative news that might affect the price of the stock. -Look to see if there is a large daily average of traders trading the stock on any given day. -Make sure that there is a high volume of trades per day, you don't want to buy a stock and get stuck with it because there are no traders wanting to buy the stock. -Call the company, make sure you get an answer, and research their address to make sure that they are a real company and not just some shack in the middle of a desert road, incorporated in Nevada, selling stocks that are not even worth sand they are built on. Due Diligence is doing anything and everything in your power and control to ensure that your invested dollars, euros, yen, etc. are in good working hands.
Penny stocks work just like any other stock except that there are some differences you should be aware of. The definition of a penny stock varies depending on who you ask. Som…e consider any stock trading under $5 to be a penny stock. Others consider any stock trading under $1 a penny stock. These stocks are often traded off of the major exchanges and are bought/sold as Pink Sheets or on the Bulletin Boards. There are large risks associated with speculation on penny stocks. These stocks can be easily manipulated by large investors including hedge funds. The bid-ask spread can be substantial and serve as a significant barrier to making profits. Also, the lack of liquidity can limit your ability to trade in and out of your investment and cause sudden price fluctuations.. Another thing to consider is that very rarely, if ever, does a stock start off as a penny stock so the stock has already experienced some difficulties to get to where it is at now. Investors in these stocks should view it as a speculative bet. While the rewards could be great you could very well lose all of your investment.
Think about it this way. Sure a stock can go from 7 cents to 14 cents which would mean you can double your money. However, the stock can just as easily go to 0 making you lose… all of your money. Stocks that trade for pennies did not get there because the company was doing well.
Penny stocks are generally pretty volatile and very hit or miss. You generally just pick one that you have a good feeling about and hope that it hits big.

Companies like Marketgrader.com will do this and help you find the best websites.
Most companies are required to file statements about their business including financial statements that show their balance sheet and income statements. Exchanges such as the O…TCBB and especially the Pink Sheets have much more lax requirements so there is much less certainty in the viability of the company. The second reason is lower priced stocks can have much larger percentage price swings. For example, if you own shares of a stock at .05 and the stock drops to .03, it has just dropped 40% in value. If you were betting a small amount of money on a stock that you thought would go up, this may be acceptable, but most people would not put large amounts of their retirement savings on a stock that could drop 40% in a few seconds.
Stay Away from Penny Stocks We are all attracted to Penny Stocks. These stocks cost us around Rs. 10 or 20 each and even a small investor can afford hundreds of thousands o…f shares. Some of them even blow the roof and grow at over 50 or 60% in a matter of days. However, such rises may be purely based on rumors or speculations and they may lack sound fundamentals or financials. Every time you will see that a penny stock which was a hot pick during a bull run, will be nowhere to see when the markets go bust. In fact, these are the ones that go down first and some may even shut down their businesses. The Lesson here is: Stay away from penny stocks. It is better to buy the shares of a good company with solid fundamentals at Rs.1000 than buy 100 shares of a tom-dick-n-harry company at Rs.10 each

When the time is right to sell, you place a "limit sell" order indicating the number of shares you wish to sell. Remember, penny stocks are highly volatile, meaning that their price can move up or down by leaps and bounds in a short period of time, this is not the case with all penny stocks, just the ones that are worth your investment.
