So first let’s understand What are penny stocks?

Penny stocks are stocks that trade at very low prices, have low market capitalization, and are mostly illiquid. These stocks (penny stocks) are lesser-known to the larger investing public as investors remain away from them because the information regarding their fundamentals and businesses is either not reliable or not available. However, they are also known for multi-bagger returns within certain trading sessions.

As penny stocks are mostly illiquid meaning traded in very less quantity, sometimes only a few orders can lead to hitting the circuit limit on the exchange. These stocks mostly give higher returns when hitting circuits for a number of days. Though this period of hitting circuit is not accompanied with trading volumes, either there is some story moving around that stock or it might be a result of manipulation by some stock operators who artificially inflate the price and volumes to bring in innocent retail investors and then later offloading their own holdings when participation increases. Now that we have understood what are penny stocks lets see why are penny stocks called “Penny” Stocks

Penny stocks are penny stocks for a reason!

Penny stocks trade at such low rates for a reason because most of the traders buying penny stocks don’t even care about them and look to exit sooner or later once they have given decent returns. Penny stocks in India are often found non-compliant with exchange regulations and non-transparency in reporting.

It is only when there is some news or some turnaround stories on penny stocks, that they move. The speculation leads to an increase in trading volumes and prices soar. But very few of them turn out to be true or genuinely fundamentally stronger. Any negative news causes the price to turn south.

Things to keep in mind while buying penny stocks

People who generally trade or invest in penny stocks are the lower class of retail investors who do not keep a portfolio approach and invest in them based on news or tip from some random source, thinking the price is already beaten down too much and they will not lose much but if that turns out to be true it will double or triple their capital. However, investors should always keep in mind that they might be investing in small amounts but still, they can lose 100 percent of their capital.

The risk a penny stock will go bust is equally high. The company can suddenly shut down or there can be very little probability of giving multi-bagger returns. The capital that deserves to be invested in penny stocks should not be more than 2 to 3 percent of a person’s portfolio value.

Investing in penny stocks is always on speculation. First of all, investors should avoid investing in them and if they buy any it should be treated as buying a lottery. You should never become emotionally attached to them in the hope of some good news.

Investors should also never follow a buy and hold approach even if they have got good returns recently. Because over a period of time neither they are able to generate value for shareholders nor they follow a transparent reporting system. Investors should also research extensively about the stock and the news going on in the public domain and not become the victim of operators’ conspiracy, who later offload their holdings after manipulating the price.

The transaction cost for some penny stocks is also higher and on some the brokerage is charged on a per-share basis. Similarly when stocks trade at a very low price, the spread between the bid and ask price also turn out to be significant in terms of percentage.

The stocks mentioned in the watchlist have been determined after keeping in mind news, speculation, trend in their price chart, and a few fundamental factors such as debt to equity ratio and cashflows.

But this information will vary on a day to day basis depending on the newsflow and an investor should make some relevant background checks in his capacity before investing in these stocks.
