Best Hot Penny Stocks

Updated on August 6, 2012

©Adrienne Manson

Investors who look for hot stock tips turn to the financial experts for where, and what to buy. Experienced investors look for penny stocks, and according to financial writer Matt Krantz of USA Today he stated, some stocks are worth taking a close look at during the summer months companies such as:

* Cedar Fair

* Walt Disney Co.

* Six Flags Entertainment

* Pacific Sunwear,

* Zumier

* Quicksilver

* Brunswick

* Active Network

Although these stocks are not penny stocks investors pay attention during summer months for stock tips. Companies such as Cedar Fair, and Walt Disney, Six Flags have their advantage during the summer to draw potential investors' attention.

The popular fashion summerwear company Pacific Sunwear noted for the women's skinny jeans, Kirra Chiffon Back Sweater, Kollie Cami, and the Nollie Fleece Hoodie Pacific Sunwear makers of Heist Co. Dots Tank, Rusty Lucky Fella Tank, Altamont B. , and Hensen Wilshire Brown Jeans, are just a few of the fashion trends made by the company. The Pacific Sun (PSUN) can be bought for a mere $2.20 per share.

Cedar Fair (FUN) can be bought at 32.03, Walt Disney (DIS) 49.94 Walt Disney shares have showed an increase in 15% since March, Six Flags Entermainment 57.91 showing a 1.69% increase since March. Although my financial expertise is Mortgage Banking and Lending I have always had a thirst to learn more about stocks. While working in the Finance Department at DePaul University I had great opportunities to learn about finance, and the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), as well as the Stock Exchange taking tield trips right along with finance students was a pleasure to watch traders on the floor as the tradde stocks the energy or I should say the madness on the floor gave me a rush watching trading, buying and selling on the floor.

The Merchantile Exchange was also a pleasure to visit and learn about the world of finance first hand. Working with 25 finance professors was the highlight of the years that I worked with DePaul. Finance is a topic that will always change due to the unpredictable highs and low of the bear and bull market. Since the days of working at DePaul trading has evolved. During the 90's trading penny stock was unheard of, thanks to technology companies such as Scottrade, and AmeriTrade novice investors, and experts can participate in stock trading.

During my early years at DePaul I was taught only invest as much as you can afford to lose. Investors who are experts in stock market trading understand this rule of thumb. Matt Krantz of USA Today wrote an article on July 25th How is Wall Street Any Different Than Vegas? His article only is a great summation of why investors should only investor as much as they can afford to lose.

My personal choice for picking a penny stock to invest in would be Pacific Sun wear at 2.20 per share. Quicksilver at 2.9 per share a company who recently announced the release of 10 new websites on Demandware. Quicksilver a company known for manufacturing AVTs, snowmobiles and other recreational products have branded their company as a division of Mercury Marine.

    We did the penny stocks for a while and bought some ones that looked good. We took a flyer and lost some dollars. However, I have to admit you have some good information here. Voted UP.
