Penny stock refers to micro-cap company’s stock, which trades at a very low price, often more or less equal to a penny; hence, they are named as ‘penny stock’. Generally, these are very high risk and high reward stocks with less liquidity. However, when it comes to a surge in a penny stock, it often takes the stock 2x-3x in a very short span of time.
