Well, penny stocks often tempt highly speculative traders with the illusion of easy exponential growth, offering the chance to double, triple or quadruple their money. While there are multiple benefits, investing in penny stocks requires sufficient capital, high-risk appetite, and proper due diligence. In case of the absence of any of these three, investors could find themselves in deep financial trouble while investing in this high-risk space.
