There are various reasons why an investor might want to invest in penny stocks. Apart from being easy on the pockets, penny stocks tend to be overlooked by the market and investors can unlock value by finding companies with solid fundamentals and robust product pipelines. No investment comes without some degree of risk, and penny stocks are often riskier than mature and established businesses. One should remember that volatility goes both ways. For investors that have the temperament for risk-taking, penny stocks can offer incredible returns and be some of the highest-returning components of their portfolios. For every successful penny stock investment, there are many more that fail. However, the potential rewards of investing in penny stocks are attractive and they can offer investors the chance to make large profits in a short period of time. Finally, some investors simply enjoy the challenge of finding and investing in penny stocks. These investors may find the process of research and analysis to be enjoyable and may view their investments as a way to "beat the market".
