Trade with Caution

When you consider that the overwhelming majority of companies start out as penny shares before growth has turned them into successful concerns you can see the attraction. While it is an exciting way of investing money it is fraught with danger. In general, penny shares have a thin market. A stock priced at 10p may rise 50% as a result of some good news, whereas a larger blue chip concern will not. On the other hand, the penny share can fall far more suddenly and steeply than the larger stocks and its price at any given time may bear no relation to the stock's underlying value.

Basically, investing in penny shares (penny stocks) is all about sifting through the masses of shares and pin-pointing a company that, for you, shows potential. Ideally a penny share that is worth investing in will have a net asset value per share that is higher than the share price itself, but sometimes it is worth while dipping in and out of shares when the time is right.

Recovery Shares

Companies which have seen their share price tumble significantly, but show potential for a return to the good old days. More on recovery shares.

Cyclical Shares

These rise and fall in value according to the economic climate or maybe a business cycle. Investors will ideally invest in stocks at the bottom of the cycle before the next upturn.

Defensive Shares

The opposite of cyclical shares, these are stocks that do well in times of economic depression and can be found in industries such as food and utilities, things that consumers tend not to cut back on in difficult times.

Biotechnology Companies

Often fewer that 10% of these companies' profits reach development stage, but just one could send the share price rocketing. In assessing the potential of any company, look out in particular for strong business plans and results; trading volume; a trend of improvement; and high visibility – a company which publishes regular financial reports.

Internet Companies

An exceptionally volatile area. Shares rise and fall rapidly in short periods of time because these companies offer little or no tangible assets to provide stability.
