Why Do Some Investors Buy Penny Stocks?

Since penny stocks are usually early-stage companies, they can be exciting investments and can generate outstanding returns very quickly.

Because of the small size of penny stock companies, these investments can double, triple, or 100x much more easily than large-cap stocks.

However, cheap stocks can also be volatile and risky. It’s important to identify penny stocks with solid business fundamentals as we’ve aimed to do with this penny stock list.

We’ve collected a NYSE and NASDAQ list of penny stocks under $1 and sorted them based on Zen Score, so you can find the best penny stocks based on their Valuation, Financials, Forecast, Performance, and Dividend (if applicable) Scores.

What are Penny Stocks?

A penny stock is any stock that trades for less than $5 per share and usually less than $1 per share. Since these are cheap stocks, you can accumulate many shares for a very small sum.

For investors with a higher risk tolerance, buying penny stocks is a popular way to see quick returns while investing nominal amounts of capital.

Are Penny Stocks Risky?

Penny stocks are highly volatile and represent one of the most speculative asset classes. Only experienced investors with a high appetite for risk should consider investing in penny stocks.

However, if you have specific knowledge of a new product or technology that a penny stock company has created, buying penny stocks can be very lucrative.
