Look no further if you want to explore some of the penny stocks available in the Canadian equities markets. Due to their low cost and potential for appreciation, penny stocks could be an option for investors with a high-risk appetite.
Penny stocks trade under $5 and belong to companies having a market capitalization of $300 million or less. Generally, these companies don't have much information to share about their business activities, and fundamentals are not accessible easily.
Hence, the prospect of earning a higher return comes with high risk when investing in penny stocks. The current market conditions are extremely volatile. Therefore, exercising extra caution is important while exploring these inexpensive stocks.
