Penny stocks typically trade for less than $5 per share. Generally, most penny stocks are traded over the counter, or OTC, transactions or similar methods. And while these stocks are generally considered high-risk, situational factors born out of the rise of retail investors in 2020 have begun to make them an attractive investment vehicle for many investors.

Small Cap Stocks vs. Large Cap Stocks

While large-cap or blue-chip stocks like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), and JPMorgan Chase & Company (NYSE:JPM) , among others, have generally dominated investor circles in the past, 2020 has shown the rise of penny stocks and their popularity. This boom led to around 75% increases in 10 of the best performing stocks in the Russell 3000 Small Cap Stock Index in the first three weeks of 2021. Additionally, retail broker eToro reported the registration of more than 380,000 new users in the first two weeks of 2021, adding to the five million existing users. This growth in the platform’s user base has highlighted the immense growth in popularity of penny stocks among investing circles in 2021.
