15 Most Popular Stocks Under $10, According To Robinhood Users

Wayne Duggan

Stocks priced under $10 per share may seem cheap on first glance. But stocks with low share prices often end up there because they have gotten hit by heavy selling pressure.

Robinhood keeps a running list of the most popular stocks held among its mostly Millennial-aged users, and the top stocks under $10 have all struggled in recent months and years.

A stock trading under $10 may seem like it has an unbalanced risk-reward skew, but stocks trading under $10 can just as easily fall 50% as stocks trading at $100 per share.

Benzinga’s Take

The dangers of looking for stocks in the discount bin are clear given just a quick glance at the top of this list. Not a single one of the top seven Robinhood holdings under $10 have delivered positive returns for investors over the past year. Investors would be wise to remember that just because a stock is cheap doesn’t mean it is a good value.
