  1. Great article. If I might also add. Penny stocks are extremely volatile.
    This means the price of these stocks is changing on a constant
    basis. Therefore, if you plan on investing in penny stocks, it is
    important that you set up an exit plan, and when the time comes to exit, ensure you stick to this plan.
