A little description of penny stocks included that these are the shares of small corporations that traded normally under $1.Penny stocks are very inexpensive stocks and investors can buy bundles of stocks in very less investment, but this is the great danger for both the trader and the stock issuing company. One more point to consider is that the companies in penny stock trading markets OTC-BB and pink sheets are largely unregulated. The penny stock issuing companies can voluntarily publish their financial disclosure documents through OTC Markets in cooperation with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) that is the regulatory body that covers trading and issuance of stock. But there are many corporations that not want to publish their financial returns and other necessary information, which can help the investor to choose the right stock from a bundle of stocks.
