In the years leading up to the novel coronavirus pandemic, financial advisors bemoaned that younger people weren’t investing in their future as did prior generations. However, the lockdowns and government stimulus checks helped spark a day trading revolution, which is positive in some regards. Still, when it comes to buying penny stocks popular on Reddit, I don’t think this is exactly what those advisors had in mind.
Now, before we roll into this discussion, I must lay out the groundwork. This is not financial advice. I am not an advisor. Merely, the purpose of this article is to relay information about the phenomenon of penny stocks on various social media platforms. You may want to participate in these highly risky, highly speculative opportunities or you may want to pass. Frankly, you probably should pass given this sector’s extreme volatility.
One of the obvious reasons why penny stocks are so dangerous is because of their unpredictability. Typically, you have two classes of this “investment” sector. First, some companies floundered for whatever reason and their shares are trading at a discount relative to their prior highs. Second, many entities don’t have the resources to list on major exchanges and so have little choice but to have their shares traded in the over-the-counter (OTC) market.
