More Research Helps

The good news is this. The Securities Division offers quite a bit of information about penny stocks as well as provides help in finding legitimate opportunities. You do not need to worry about not finding the answers you need. Remember to take the time to find the right company, the right broker and the laws for your specific state as well. All of this can be provided through your Securities Division.

Some Warnings

1. The best way to make solid money with penny stocks is in the long term. Therefore, any company that encourages you to buy and sell quickly is not giving you an honest shake.

In fact, any company that puts a lot of pressure on you for sales is not one to work with. Remember, a company that is just starting out is one that needs time to grow and expand. What’s more is that it needs time to get its feet wet.

2. Avoid manipulation techniques by making sure to do your homework. A penny stock that has risen quickly only to fall hard is one that has been manipulated. Stay clear of these risky penny stock investments.

3. Don’t invest blindly. Some brokers will encourage you to write them a blank check, allowing them to use the funds that you have put aside to invest in any way that they want to. It is important to play a role in this process especially until you get to know your broker fully.

You should know exactly where your money is going, how it will be spent and on whom it is to be spent. In fact, it should be broken down for you into how much will be spent on management and promoters and how much is going to increasing sales.

4. Check out the trade confirmations. These provide for the details of the transaction and contain key pieces of information. It should not be marked as “unsolicited” as this can help the broker to get around specific laws regarding the trade.

Also, make sure to read through the confirmation to insure that your information is accurate. This will include things like mistakes in your income, your net worth, and in what your investment objectives are.

This can be a way for the penny stock broker to be misrepresenting you and therefore not providing the right information about how suitable you are for a penny stock.

5. Always invest the time in monitoring your account. You should know what transactions are being made, who is making them and if they are in fact the ones to be made. Keeping in touch and keeping on top of your stocks are totally different things. Make sure you know just what needs to be accomplished.

There is no doubt that there are going to be problems when it comes to some brokers and even some poor companies in penny stocks. In fact, there are many cases where people lose a great deal of money in penny stocks because of these factors. Yet, learning from this things can help you to make better decisions about the penny stocks that you invest in.

Tips to The Right Broker

1. Find the right broker through research or recommendation rather than advertisements. Make sure you know about the broker, his experience as well as his success rate. True interviews with him are essential; but only after you already know the facts about him.

2. Make sure that your broker is doing both the buying and selling speech. Any buyer that is doing nothing but trying to get you to buy penny stocks is not one that is faithful. You want a broker that is able to provide good advice that is balanced for both buying as well as selling penny stocks.

3. He or she should address your needs in investments. If he or she does not want to meet your needs, for example, they do not tolerate your level of risk then they are not the right broker for you. What’s more, they should be able to help you to meet your goals through providing a balanced outlook on the right stocks for you, whether they are penny stocks or not.

4. Don’t go to a broker that just specializes in penny stocks. Who knows if they are right for you? Beware of those that make huge promises that you know they can not keep. Remember, most people fail when it comes to penny stocks as the risks are that high.

5. Get the prospectus. First off, the broker needs to provide you with all of the necessary information you need to make a decision. The prospectus is one key element there. It provides you with key information such as the way in which the investment money will be used, the cash flow system of the company, the management of the company and even the history of that company.

6. Remember this key point: If you can not trust, or do not feel as if you can trust, your stock broker, do not work with him. Instead, find someone that you trust to handle your money. Learn whatkind of experience they have and what history they have. Spend time on this decision as it is a huge one to consider.

The broker that you need is one that is going to be there for you. Since in most cases you can not buy and sell penny stocks on your own, you do want to find someone that you can count on to help you. What you will find is that most brokers are principal broker dealers in this field of penny stock investing.

That does not mean that you can not find a good quality broker agent to work with in penny stocks. The fact is that you can, easily. If you do, you will have more security in the long run in the stocks that you purchase as this broker is more likely to be one that you can ultimately trust in the process.

Nevertheless, one of the key things you need to start with is investing in the right broker. Hands down, this is the first step of the process. Take the time to go through the details that we have listed for you above. Get all of your questions answered so that you can make the right decision beyond a doubt.

After securing the right broker, you should be able to sit down with them and talk about your investment strategy. That is, they should be able to provide you with all the necessary help you need to make the decisions you need. They should be working for you.

Next, find the right company to work with and invest in as we mentioned above.

Success in Holding It

As we mentioned above, the next step is to keep the penny stocks for a good long time. That is important as it takes some time for any company to find its place in the market.

In short, plan to hold your penny stocks for some time, even several years. The fact is it takes that long for a new company to get into the business, get comfortable, make the right investments, get over slumps and problems and to actually mature. Once it has done this, the growth of the company will be in place. This is the only real way that you will see any real appreciation in the value of your penny stocks.

It makes sense that many people will not be able to hold onto their penny stocks for this amount of time. Yet, no company will be able to provide better results as a new company if they are not given the key factor of time.

Chapter 7: Finding Legit Penny Stocks

Throughout this e-book, you have noticed that we give both the good and the bad when it comes to penny stocks. Here’s why. There is no sense in telling you that you can make a huge amount of money with penny stocks if you do not know about all of the traps out there. In fact, one of the key points to this e-book is the fact that you can make a killing if you learn how to avoid those traps.

As we mentioned, there are good and bad aspects to each area of penny stock investing. But, we want to talk about some of the good stuff here for a minute.

For example, while there are bad companies out there and scams galore when it comes to penny stocks, there are plenty of opportunities as well. Your goal will be to find legitimate companies that do trade with pink sheets rather than on the big stock markets.

What is the best company to invest in? It is hard to say that one company or the next is the best one to go with, but the bottom line is that you can always find the fresh guy in the bunch. A fresh, young and even hip company can be the ideal company to invest in.

If you purchase those penny stocks for this brand new company at just pennies and hold them throughout the bad years until the company gets established enough, you may be able to sell them for top dollar really making a good deal of money off of these penny stocks. Yet there is a formula that needs to come from doing this. Here is your formula for success with new companies.

1. Do your homework and invest in companies that you have learned are real and offer something you believe is vital. You do not want to invest blindly into a new company. Do your homework as we have talked about here.

2. Purchase using a good amount of capital that you are okay with a high risk with. Remember; plan to lose it all so that when it comes back to you, you are safe. If you lose it, it shouldn’t kill you financially speaking. Invest into the company as much capital as you can to gain as many low cost shares as possible while they are low cost shares.

3. Hold it. The key to making sure that the new company gets off the ground and does well is to hold your penny stocks. If you are investing for the long term, the penny stocks can only pay off in the long term if you hold them through the rough first years of business. Then, prices will rise as the company grows, expands and meets goals. Selling quickly will not allow you to break even.

Of course, a bit of luck always is helpful it comes to any investing strategy!
