Penny stocks have low market capitalisation and low prices of less than $1. Penny stocks are speculative in nature, therefore, investors willing to take risks, should go for penny stocks. However, investment in right penny stocks can help investors make big profits on small amount invested.

To invest in penny stocks, one must have a high-risk tolerance, a long-investment time frame.  

In the technology space, there are some penny stocks that have a huge potential for growth. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, some of these companies did well due to increased dependence on technology. Some of these penny stocks have either listed or thinking of listing on the ASX.

Let’s look at six technology stocks whose share price is less than NZ$1 each.
