In the ASX, penny stocks are generally those stocks trading below AU$1. There are ultimate benefits as well as risks of investing in penny stocks. On the one hand, these stocks could be tomorrow's big winners, provide you with rapid gains and may be kind to your pocket. On the other hand, penny stocks are volatile and prone to scams. They are generally issued by small companies that lack a track record. AJL, FAR, and RMI are three penny stocks from the ASX that made the most gains this YTD.
