Highlights

  • Penny stocks remain in high demand among investors.

  • These stocks possess the ability to surprise investors with high returns within a short period.

  • But one requires detailed research while trading in penny stocks.

Penny stocks are among the most talked about stocks in the investing world. These are in high demand among risk-taking investors. Penny shares generally trade for less than a dollar and represent companies with low market capitalisation. The other important characteristic of these shares is that they are highly illiquid. Due to their illiquid nature, penny stocks are highly volatile.

Then, why do penny stocks remain in demand?

The foremost reason why penny stocks are in high demand with a section of investors is due to their inherent ability to surprise with sharp returns while the market is in a bull run. It is the time when these stocks tend to post quick gains in a relatively shorter period. As already discussed, as penny stocks are highly liquid, investors should be ready to bear risks while trading in them.

Due to their illiquid nature, penny stocks may not find buyers at the right time. The other major drawback with penny stocks is that not much authentic information is available on their corporate performance. Therefore, investors are required to conduct a high level of research while trading in penny stocks. Experts generally advise new investors to maintain a distance from penny stocks due to their high-risk nature.
