Q.1) What is ‘Penny Stock’
Penny stocks are those that trade at a very low price, have very low market capitalisation, are mostly illiquid, and are usually listed on a smaller exchange. Penny stocks in the Indian stock market can have prices below Rs 10. These stocks are very speculative in nature and are considered highly risky because of lack of liquidity, smaller number of shareholders, large bid-ask spreads and limited disclosure of information.
Penny stocks can be considered viable investments in certain circumstances.
Q.2) Is It Good To Invest In Penny Stocks In India?
Penny stocks are quite popular with small investors because of their potential for huge gains. The gains may be in the range of 300% to 500% or even higher. Even if you have a small investment of Rs 100/-, you can still gain up to Rs 500 profit.
