Stocks that trade at extremely low prices fall in the category of ultra-penny stocks.

In the context of the Indian stock market, stocks that trade at prices below Rs10 fall in the category of ultra-penny stocks

What is an ultra-penny stock?

These stocks are lesser-known to 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 these stocks are illiquid 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 offload their own holdings when participation increases.

Why do they trade so cheap?

Ultra-penny stocks trade at such low rates for a reason because the larger investing public doesn’t even care about them and look to exit sooner or later once they have given decent returns. They are often found non-compliant with exchange regulations and are not transparent. It is only when there is some news or turnaround event that ultra-penny stocks 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 determining the best stocks to buy below 10 Rupees

People who generally trade in ultra-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 friends, 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 an ultra-penny stock will go bust is equally high. The company can suddenly shut down or there can be very less probability for its going concern. The capital that deserves to be invested in ultra-penny or penny stocks should not be more than 2 to 3 percent of a person’s portfolio value.

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 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.Investing in ultra-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.

The transaction cost for some ultra-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 turns out to be significant in terms of percentage.

The stocks mentioned in the watchlist are keeping in mind news, speculation, bullish 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 news flow and an investor should make some relevant background checks in his capacity before investing in these stocks.
