    Any thoughts about the whole 50 cent penny stock pump thing? I wouldn’t buy stock under $1 because it’s too risky, but if you’re talking about the $5 range, I would take that risk. In fact I’m following something at $7 now. I’ve seen it go out to almost $8.50 but I need enough money to make a difference.

    To avoid the pump and dump operation, pick stocks that have analyst coverage, high liquidity, and on a major exchange. Stock under $5 can have a large cap too. Look at Citigroup with 142 billion market cap, Lloyds Banking Group with over 75 billion, and Sprint with over 13 billion. This stocks have millions or even hundreds of millions of shares traded daily (C). Stay away from illiquid stocks with little coverage on small exchanges if you want to lessen risk of pump and dumps.

    I have many years of experience with these type of stocks.I would like to take a moment to talk about low price stocks not classic penny stocks or stocks under one dollar the term most people most often think of when the word penny stock is used. The single most important thing that investors must realize about low price stocks or stocks under five dollars is this’ their are companies of really decent quality trading under five dollars’ but for every one company trading under five dollars that is of decent quality their are maybe ten of poor quality. So the really big difference between those investors that are tremendously successfull when it comes to investing in low price stocks and those investors that lose enormous amounts of money investing in stocks under five dollars’ is having a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks’ or having a total lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks. Finding quality stocks under five dollars requires a lot more research than finding a decent stock above ten dollars.

    i really liked this article. Very informative. I suggest it’s wise for dummies to invest in penny stocks. I had also started my investment career with these. Specially the OTC US listed ones are too profitable. I strongly recommend investors to try out OTC:GLAG.
