Investing in stocks has long been considered a path to wealth creation, but historically, few retail investors have taken advantage of this opportunity. However, there has been a significant surge in retail participation in stock investing. Investors are increasingly viewing equities as a promising asset class compared to traditional options like real estate and gold.

Many investors are drawn to small-cap and penny stocks due to their lower prices, hoping for rapid gains if the companies are fundamentally strong and well-positioned within their industries. While some stocks have indeed rewarded investors with significant growth, others have remained stagnant.
