What is Penny stock? – List of top 100 best penny stocks to buy in India

Last Updated on 2 months ago by Raj Kumar

What is a Penny stock?

Penny is often referred to as something which is very cheap to afford. So the stocks which are very low in stock price are known as Penny stocks.

The term ‘Penny stocks’ has originated from the west. A penny stock refers to a small company’s stock that typically trades for less than $5 per share. In the grand old days, Penny stocks were the stocks that traded below $1 per share but SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) has changed the definition to include shares up to $5 to be called a Penny stock.

History of Penny Stocks

As per NASDAQ ; In the non-digital era, persons buying a stock were paying up as much as a quarter-point ($0.25) commission to buy or sell a share of stock regardless of the stock price whether it’s a $1 stock or a $100 stock.

So the Mutual funds at that time avoided buying Penny stocks to avoid the huge commission. This became a widespread notion to avoid the types of stocks to save on the commission.

What are penny stocks in India?

Although there is no definition of penny stock in India as a general consensus in Indian stock markets, any stock that trades below Rs 50 is considered a Penny stock in India. These stocks are generally volatile with their stock price, il-liquid, and have got stock market operator’s involvement.

Although many retail investors try to stick to Blue chip stocks in India for their investment preference and look for mainly zero debt companies to find safe heavens but recently its seen that there is an appetite to take risks and invest in Penny stocks in India. We will only look at the stocks which have stock prices higher than Rs 1.

You need to be extremely careful while investing in these types of stocks as they are highly risky and you may lose your entire capital. History shows that investing in stocks just because they are available under Rs 50 doesn’t mean that the stock will give higher returns.
