Penny stocks, also called micro-cap stocks (as they have a very low market capitalisation) are traded at a very low price. These stocks generally have poor liquidity, so they are considered risky for investment. Generally, the beginners prefer to invest in these stocks as they can start investment with low capital, can buy significant number of shares and can get good profits. Further, the manipulators and scammers are also after the penny-stocks. If the investor has already made a profit of 20% to 30% in just a few days, he should immediately sell the stocks quickly. The investors while investing in stocks in 2020 should see guidance for FY 20, their track record in attaining the target, the economic cycle, demand of the sectors/segments etc.
