What Are Penny Stocks?

Any shares trading at $5 or less are considered to be penny stocks, but some trade as low as a fraction of a penny.

At Peter Leeds, we focus on shares trading mainly between a quarter and $5. We do not base our selections on price per share, because that is irrelevant to the prospects for the shares to increase in value.

Many of our penny stock picks increase above the $5 threshold level, and as such are no longer considered penny stocks any more. However, we will still follow them and update accordingly if they were a former Hot List pick profiled for our subscribers in the last year.


What are Penny Stocks

When most people ask themselves, "what are penny stocks," they think of small, thinly traded companies whose shares are trading for a few cents each. Well, sometimes they have it right, but penny stocks are actually any shares trading for $5 each or less.

In general, you'll see some penny stocks trading for 3 or 4 dollars, while others trade for only fractions of a share each. I imagine that you understand a company trading at $4.75 per share is generally higher quality than those penny stocks changing hands for one tenth of a cent.

At the same time, you know that you stand to make the greatest return on your investment the smaller (and possibly the more volatile) the penny stocks are. In other words, you've got to gauge your risk/reward tolerance as you scoop up shares in the absolute best penny stocks. In penny stocks, you'll find all sorts of great investments that can make you plenty of money, while other penny stocks are companies in a sorry state. If you get involved in those penny stocks that are fundamentally solid, have great financial strength, leaping revenues, and growing market share, you stand to have your small investment multiple several times over, and probably pretty quickly too. On the other hand, if you get involved with the duds and brutal penny stocks, you will get what you deserve.

So, how do you avoid what are the dangerous or lack luster penny stocks, and get a piece of what are the highest quality penny stocks? For starters, you pay attention to the 3 don'ts of penny stocks:

Now, if you abide by the three don'ts of penny stocks, you're ready for the next step: How to find what are the best penny stocks.
