    I am not a fan of penny stock because the probability of you making a substantial profit is very slim, but hey if you can invest int he right company you may be able to make some money, but I believe penny stock is for investor with minimal capital.

    As long as you know what the heck you're doing, you CAN make money with penny stocks. Anybody who says you can't is wrong. I turned $50 into $150 in less than a week, and I turned less than $300 into over $1000 in a little under two months. My gains are exponential. I plan to continually invest until I reach a substantial amount. Of course, it may take a few years, but I think it's worth it. Yes, the risks are there, but as long you make an educated decision, you will succeed.

    Think about it. Wouldn't you rather lose $500 than $5000? Say you bought 5,000 shares @ 10 cents per share. A stock is more likely to jump from 10 cents to 20 cents than it is to go from $10 to $20. So, perhaps you sit on those 5,000 shares for a few months and suddenly the penny stock jumps to a dollar. $5,000 out of $500 isn't too shabby.

    It really isn't that complicated.

    Here's a hub that I wrote earlier on this topic.

    One comment I would make, stay away from any of the spammy offers of "trading robots."  Do real research on the stocks just like any other investment, and don't fall in love with the idea that a swing of "just a few cents is equal to a large percentage gain."  It works the same way on the way down.

    I can assure everyone that about 95% of the stocks on the pink sheets are scams (meaning no real biz, reverse into public shell, nothing but hype).  Bulletin Board, prob about 40% are scam type, but since you have to be reporting, less so.  Most of it has to do with actual business prospects and what you can earn per share. 

    That is all stocks trade off of - EPS OR what another company would purchase your assets for.  Most penny stocks, especially on the pink sheets, have billions of shares outstanding, and they continually issue more.  They pay rent, salaries etc all with issuing stock.  This is never disclosed of course.  Tell me this - a company with 50 or 100bil outstanding (this is common on the pinks) shares, how would they earn even .01 per share. - well the answer is the NET income would have to be 50 million dollars or 100 mil. 

    Most of the time, even if these companies captured 100% of any possible revenues and income in a sector they are in, they could never make that much.  Some of their competition is in the sp500 etc - you actually think a company with 14k in the bank and an idea is gonna take out a huge conglomerate that is in that space - if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.  If a large company with hundreds of millions in cash cannot make that much in that market, how would a tiny unknown company??  And this is just to earn .01 per share.


    This is not to say they dont move, and you cant make a buck here or there, but from someone who has a HUGE amount of real experience on a trading desk, in general any purchase of these is a losing proposition in the long run.  All the trading desks that trade in these are always net short.  The only time they are not net short is when they load in long before a hype campaign starts (email spam, web spam etc, bs press releases galore) and then they sell into the push up.  Some people make money but in the end, the manipulators take it all as it will go to 0, become a shell, then name change, rinse and repeat.

    I have written several times on penny stocks, all I can say is stay away, far away.

    I have been investing in various penny stocks for about a year. I am conservative as I am one of those type of people that likes to read the fine print.   I also recieve alerts of various penny stocks to invest in.  I have missed out on some great penny stocks that have double or tripled and quadrupled in there price.   You can flip $50 into a $1000 return easily or more.   The best thing to do is to research which companies track legit penny stocks and just like with all types of investing you should also do your own research.   People seem to forget that not all no name companies were penny stocks.   Take AIG for example, which I am kicking myself in the but today.  I had 167 shares when it was trading at .27 cents a share.  Today it is trading at $40 a share.   I sold all of it earlier this year because I was in need of money, but If I would of held on to that stock it would of been a return of $6500.       
    Do your research put the time and effort in finding the right stock and you can make money on penny stocks.
