Common penny stocks risks
Penny stock trading comes with additional risks. Some of these stocks can be only bought ‘over the counter‘ (OTC). However, some companies can be acquired and sold on online trading platforms like Revolut trading or similar alternatives. The most common risks associated with penny stock trading are:
- Penny stock companies may not be able to provide enough financial data to supervisory authorities. It leaves room for potential fraud or illegal activities by the company management. Usually, more common for companies that sell ‘over the counter’.
- Less valuable companies may still fight for their market share to survive in the market.
- The company may be in financial trouble. I.e. The company is filing for bankruptcy, so their further existence is under question.
- These companies are usually less liquid, and you may not be able to sell them at the price you desire.
However, there are multiple tiers for penny stocks, and you can avoid some of the risks mentioned above. Revolut made available only penny stocks that are traded on exchanges like NASDAQ, NYSE and NYSE AMERICAN. These companies are required to meet a certain criterion to be listed on these exchanges.
