Penny Stocks are highly risky investments, although if picked correctly, they can also translate into very high returns. Most penny stocks trade over-the-counter and are quoted on separate boards, like the OTC Bulletin Board or OTC Link and have low trading volumes and may trade infrequently, which may create difficulties when selling the shares. However, there are also many penny stocks trading on major exchanges, such as the NYSE or NASDAQ, where they are more regulated and slightly less risky, since companies are required to disclose more information and are watched more closely by regulators.

Despite their speculative nature and other concerns, penny stocks should not be avoided altogether, since there are many companies whose stocks once traded under $5 per share, but eventually managed to make it big (here are some of the most successful penny stocks in history). If one decides to invest in penny stocks, or stocks that are priced under $5 per share, as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the best way to start is to focus on stocks that are trading on major exchanges. Then it’s important to identify why the stock is trading below $5. In some cases, a stock can be cheap because the company is an emerging one and is just starting to operate, so we have to determine whether the company and its product has potential. In other cases, a stock might have tanked, so it’s important to assess the underlying causes of the decline, which can be either related to the company’s operations, or can be industry or sector-specific, which is why we have to assess if the company has a chance to turn around.

As a rule, smart money investors don’t bother with penny stocks, some are prohibited from doing so by regulations, others are just to large to get any substantial benefit that would justify the risk. Some hedge funds do invest in penny stocks on a regular basis, but the majority of them hold or invest in companies whose stock tanked from much higher levels and they are either sticking to their bullish thesis or are betting on the company returning to its former glory.
