These stocks are notorious for their high volatility, making them susceptible to pump-and-dump schemes, liquidity challenges, and potential stock manipulation. Despite the allure of potential growth opportunities, investing in penny stocks is not without substantial risk.

Despite these risks, some investors view penny shares as a chance to tap into the growth potential of small companies. However, it's essential to approach such investments with caution, conducting thorough research and seeking guidance from financial advisors before diving in.
