While penny stocks are generally associated with lack of liquidity, and small company sizes, they can sometimes turn out to be extremely rewarding opportunities for investors. Penny stocks are priced lower than US$5 in the market, with some holding the potential to grow multifold.

Identifying these penny stocks forms the fundamental pillar of becoming a successful penny stock investor. The power of penny stocks becomes even more evident through real-life examples of large-cap companies like Amazon and Tesla, that once originated as penny stocks.

At the same time, investors should not forget that most penny stocks do not offer the dependability that is seen in most large- or mid-cap stocks. One of the key criteria to screen quality penny stocks is their recent financial performance, which can be used to gauge how well the company may perform in the market.

On that note, here are three penny stocks that have seen year-on-year growth in their recent quarterly revenues:
