What is Penny Stock Investing

Penny stock is low price share with broad range of market capitalisation. Though penny stocks’ prices are the same as small cap stocks, mid cap stocks or micro cap stocks, they are different altogether. If small cap stocks are companies with $300 million to $2 billion market capitalization, penny stocks may have as high as $4 billion worth; although their stock prices are similar. This can happen if high market capitalization companies decided to issue many shares or to split their stocks to maintain its attractiveness to stock market investors and traders.

But most of the time, penny stocks are new companies that just get listed in the stock exchange. This makes almost all the small cap stocks are penny stocks indeed. Because of their smaller capital base, these companies are generally more vulnerable than larger companies during economic downturn.
