The Securities and Exchange Commission classifies penny stocks as “low-priced (below $5), speculative securities of very small companies”, and they are traded over the counter (OTC) through quotation services such as the Pink Sheets or the OTC Bulletin Board.
Online brokerage firms such as Scottrade®, E-Trade®, TradeStation®, and Speedtrader® will allow you to purchase penny stocks.
Penny Stocks are, in most cases, overlooked by traditional stock brokers who do not follow a specific stock unless it is trading above a predetermined limit (typically around $2.00 – $3.00). Penny Stocks can be securities of small companies with big potential for growth and can, therefore, pay premium returns to those who buy in before the price rises.
