Investing in penny stocks is an inexpensive way to diversify your portfolio and could generate higher returns. But these stocks are very volatile and risky as these companies are usually small, unestablished, often newly listed, and have more speculative valuations.

In comparison to penny stocks, blue-chip stocks are reputed companies that are fundamentally strong and have been around for some time. They have a long, stable financial track record, therefore, are safer investment bets.  Penny stocks usually don’t pay dividends, on the other hand, blue-chips stocks almost always do.
