Gold Mining Penny Stocks | Junior Stock Review
A Quick Guide to Penny Mining Stocks
We’ve all heard stories of people striking it rich when they’ve invested in a little known penny stock. Especially for those just getting started with investing, there’s great appeal to buy stocks that (in most cases) cost less than $1.
Of course, penny stocks investing isn’t without risk. Whether they’re mining penny stocks or stocks from another sector that have a low share price, they tend to be highly speculative because of their small market caps, lack of liquidity and disclosure. That said, you can invest a rather small amount of capital into penny mining stocks to hold several thousand shares, a position which could set you up for a pretty significant percentage return, if the value of the share increases by just a few cents. The same is also true when the share price drops – you could lose your entire investment pretty quickly.
