Due to its low price, penny stocks may seem like a good place to invest your money. But they come with high risk. Depending on the company, especially if it’s traded over-the-counter (OTC) it may be hard to find accurate financial information.
Another issue you may face is liquidity. If you want to purchase a large number of shares, you may find it hard to do so without pushing the price higher.
However, if you find the right penny stock, you could be greatly rewarded.
