Penny stocks, characterised by their low price and speculative nature, typically represent shares of small companies traded at a low volume. In India, these stocks are often priced under 10 and are known for their high volatility.

However, it's crucial to understand that penny stocks come with inherent risks and may not be suitable for most investors. Among these risks are susceptibility to pump-and-dump schemes, liquidity challenges, and the potential for stock manipulation.

Despite these risks, penny shares have gained some popularity among investors in India due to their affordable prices. Some investors view purchasing penny shares as an opportunity to invest in small companies with significant growth potential over the long term.

Nonetheless, we emphasise that investing in penny shares carries substantial risks. Therefore, we strongly advise investors to conduct thorough research and/or seek guidance from a financial advisor before considering any investment in penny stocks.
