Small companies with limited capital and greater level of volatility are known as penny stocks. Penny stocks are often unpredictable, and apt for investors with an appetite for risk tolerance.
However, these stocks are cheaper to invest as they trade under $1. So, one can invest in the penny stocks devoid of squandering any substantial amount of money.
A minor share price appreciation in penny stocks could be followed by a massive profit percentage, which is often not experienced with bigger players.

Marlborough Wine Estates Group (NZX:MWE)

On 11 June, post the market session, Marlborough Wine Estates increased by 1.75% from its last closing price and stood at NZ$0.29.
