Disclaimer

As stated above, these stocks are not stock picks and are not recommendations to buy or sell a stock. Rather, these ideas should be viewed as potential opportunities for elevated levels of volatility and trader interest and thus increased liquidity. These stocks can be opportunities for traders who already have an existing strategy to play sub-$5 stocks. Penny stocks can be extremely dangerous for a number of reasons, including the major swings in percent a small dollar/cent move can create, decreased liquidity when interest fades and decreased transparency into operations. Penny-stock trading is not for beginners. Benzinga does not recommend trading or investing in low-priced stocks if you haven’t had at least a couple years of experience in the stock market.
