Most people who buy penny stocks are ordinary investors who don’t have $25,000 to open an account with a private investment adviser. A typical penny stock investor trades online with a discount broker and typically trades with $500 to $1,000 on a speculative trade. However, research still proves to be the best source as in most promoted penny stocks, many sellers make money while many buyers do not.
Hence, I have targeted some of the penny stocks being promoted this week which have had some large compensation packages paid to them and could be on the pump and dump watch list:
