Top 5 Penny Stocks To Buy Right Now

The recent unemployment claims in the U.S. have hit another post-pandemic low. That’s bullish news for the economy. And it’s bullish news for quality penny stocks as well.

Let me clarify what I mean by penny stocks. These aren’t tiny stocks that trade for pennies like the junior mining stocks of the 1970s and 1980s. Or the odd pump-and-dump stocks that were all over the markets before 2008 washed them all away.

The penny stocks here are quality companies with real businesses and market caps that are in the 9- to 10-digit range. They’re fundamentally, low-priced, small-cap stocks.

And this is an ideal market for this sector. When growth accelerates, small companies can grow faster than larger stocks simply because it takes less growth to move them higher.

Before these stocks start making headlines, this is a good time learn about them and think about adding one or more to your portfolio.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2021

India is set to see a major overhaul in the trade structure in favor of the organized sector thanks to the governments initiatives such as demonetization and GST, among others. The shift will be prompt for some sectors, gradual for others, and might remain challenging for a few.

Indias plastics industry is one of the biggest in the world. Industry volumes are estimated at 16MMTPA (in FY17), with market size at Rs 1.8 lakh crore. In volume terms, the industry has grown at a CAGR of 10 percent over FY10-17 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5 percent to 22MMTPA by FY20.

A similar shift is taking place in the plastic industry, Motilal Oswal said in a report. The industry is highly fragmented and numerous unorganized players account for 44 percent of the industry.

Channel checks conducted by the domestic brokerage firm suggests that changes in the administrative procedures under GST using technology platform and effective implementation of the e-way bill are likely to help hasten the shift towards formal trade.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Mike Stenger]

    That’s the same Warren Buffett who snubbed the industry in a 2007 shareholder letter from Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A).

    “The worst sort of business is one that grows rapidly, requires significant capital to engender the growth, and then earns little or no money. Think airlines. Here a durable competitive advantage has proven elusive ever since the days of the Wright Brothers. Indeed, if a farsighted capitalist had been present at Kitty Hawk, he would have done his successors a huge favor by shooting Orville down.”
