What are Penny Stocks?

Penny stocks are stocks that trade at very low prices normally below 50 rupees. They have low market capitalization and mostly are illiquid. Penny stocks are lesser-known to the larger investing public. I Investors remain away from them because the information regarding their fundamentals and businesses is either not reliable or not available. However, penny stocks are known for generating multi-bagger returns within a few trading sessions.Since penny stocks are illiquid, sometimes only a few orders can lead to hitting circuit limit on the exchange. These stocks mostly give higher returns when they are hitting upper circuits for a number of days. Generally, this period of hitting circuits is not accompanied with trading volumes. Sometimes there is a strong fundamental story that moves the stock up. Other times it might just be a case of manipulation by stock operators. They artificially inflate the price and volumes to attract innocent retail investors. Once they have enough traders participating in the stocks they would offload their own holdings. Now that we have understood the modus operandi of penny stocks. lets see why are penny stocks called “Penny” Stocks

Penny Stocks are Called 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 often don’t comply with exchange regulations. They are not even transparent in their 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 strong on a fundamental basis. Any negative news causes the price to turn south.

People who generally trade or invest in penny stocks are generally 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 sources. They think the price is so low that they will not lose much but if the stock turns out to be good then it could double or triple their investment. 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.

Things to keep in mind while buying penny stocks

The risk that 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 total 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 mostly speculative. 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.
