Bottom line

Penny stocks, present in ample loads across the market, can be a good starting point for novice investors.

However, amateur or not, investors should note that penny stocks are known to be highly volatile in nature, mostly due to their smaller market cap and business range. Hence, any investment decisions, specially while considering penny stocks, should be led by proper technical and fundamental analysis.
