Default Under $5 Stocks To Buy? Advice?

I have opened an AmeriTrade account with a couple grand to do a little bit of trading. I spend that much on a weekend in Coushatta. Therefore I thought I would start watching the market daily and some online reports.

I have yet to purchase any stocks yet. I have been looking in to several penny cannabis stocks and some other options.

I am open to any stocks that are looking like a hot commodity for 2018 and are currently under $5 a share.

This is more an experimentation gamble.

Any insight and tips welcome!

I just bought some shares in Novavax (NVAX) this morning at $1.64. They work on flu vaccines, and received a $89mil grant from Bill Gates foundation and granted a fast track from the FDA.

Bezinga just raised their target price rating from $2.25 to $10.00

You need to narrow down what type of trading you want to do. Day trade, swing trade, long term trade, medium? Buy and hold for a target price..

Penny stock gambling in hot sectors, real investing in real companies, which sectors?

A million questions.......


And if you buy something because someone posts it you need to know WHY you hold it and WHEN to sell it.

If looking at pot stocks how risky do you want to go? SIGO and TRPX may be good ones.

MICT may be a long term hold at 1.18 20 mil backlog in orders and it's trading at cash value.

I tried on some stock in a lithium mining company. Seems that should become a big deal someday, shouldn't it?

Sprint (S) is trading at 5.64 right now, and could be a stock you could possibly look at to short. I subscribe to several investing publications, and read a lot of research on it, before I jumped in and shorted it when it was trading at $8.31 back in July.

The grant was issued in 2015. Great gesture from Gates. The goal is for the company to have affordable medication. At $1.64.....$1.66 a few minutes ago, this could be one of those stocks to put a few funds in. If they can complete thier Level 3 trials this Stock more than likely goes up. I never go overboard because I have been burned before. Part of the game of course. For those that can watch the stock market all day long I applaud you. My job does not allow for that though.

Yeah I like this stock. Pretty volatile, but man itís potentially great. Think it went up 59% one day last week.

Bought some of those cheap stocks back in the 90's and retired now but nothing to do with buying cheap stocks. They are worthless and not work the paper they are written one. Just my opinion invest in already established stocks.

I'm glad I purchased NFLX when it was not established and worthless.

However, I have bought plenty of the stock you described.

I'm curious as to why you are looking at stocks for under $5/share? You can't compare a stock to see which one is expensive vs the next by saying well this one trades for $7/share and this one trades for $4/share, the $7/share must be more expensive. Stocks aren't priced that way to be able to compare them apples to apples. They price off a multiples of future earnings. You can have a $1,000 stock that is technically "cheaper" than a $5 stock.

I understand somewhat of what you're saying.

I guess I would love to learn more about short term - day trading type of operations.

Anyone have input or outlets for beginner type of information?

First thing is ditch Ameritrade and those fees and download the Robinhood app on your phone. You will save lots of money in fees as their trades are 100% FREE.

Follow good traders on Twitter. Figure out what niche you want to trade. That's the hard part. Don't try and trade different ways. Either be a day trader, a swing trader or a long term investor.

Lower priced stocks move bigger percentages easier. I guess because people are not smart. A $20 stock up $1 is 5% A $4 stock up $1 is up 20/25% (depending on how you look at it).

Exactly . If one does not understand how to analyze stocks and their companies' fundamentals, and they buy stocks without sound advice from a knowledgeable person, they are simply gambling on chance.

I have an Ameritrade account with like $100 on a long hold stock. I use ThinkOrSwim (comes with Ameritrade account) to follow level 2 and buys and sells on stocks I'm swing or day trading. I do most of my trades on Ustocktrade. I also have used RH and it is pretty good, but I lost some money when it glitched a couple of times so I left it.

I also know nothing about robinhood, but most trading platforms are very reasonable, less than 10 dollars a trade is so cheap and you will be with a giant company with a lot of support both customer service and financial research. Also I would forget about day trading. I would recommend having a well balanced portfolio but I am also partial to MLP's(google it). I like dividend paying stocks.

They make money off of interest in CASH accounts. I have some cash in my account where I sold some stock last year and just haven't picked anything up yet. So they are making money off my cash.

Its all about % increase / decrease, not dollar increase / decrease!

If you want to go to the casino and put it all on black, then SDRL might not be a bad one to check out. I did pretty well with that stock when oil prices started to fall a few years ago. They filed for ch. 11 last fall, but are expected to overcome those setbacks and surge in the coming year.

I'm guessing they get paid for orderflow and don't guarantee best price. They probably also make money on margin accounts/loans.

Nothing makes it "better" but if you have $555 to invest you have a better opportunity to diversify the stock you are in. You can buy 111 different $5 stocks or you can put it all in one share. Sometimes the one is a way better place to put it though.

I've bought pioneer energy services, Conn's, and a few years ago Arch Coal. The coal stock went up 700% and then they filed bankruptcy, but I bought and sold and did great. Conn's is a stock that really rises and drops, I think I bought it when it was around $7

I agree with using Robin hood. They collect interest on your unused balance, so I just don't keep a balance on the app. I'm not planning on making any big purchases so don't need money available right away. Free trades, and I'm pretty sure unlimited trades.

Learn to read financial reports like a company's 10-K. Learn cash flows, financial statements, and balance sheets and how they're analyzed to valuate a company.

And ditto on RobinHood. You'll never make money at $9 a trade if you're not investing much.

Robinhood is great. And I like LC (Lending Club) as both a stock and an investment platform on it's own. I have a slow drip going every time I get paid, Lending Club get's $25 for me to buy "Notes". I like the company, believe in it, and have been "loaning people money" for quite a while on Lending Club.

That being said. Stock is around $4.15 right now, has been as low as $3.51 and as high as $26 a share. I see it being a $10 stock but someone needs to buy the company (such as chase, B of A, etc) or the company needs to show strong growth. I think growth could really ramp up the next 6 months. The company has made a lot of good strategic moves. I like them.

I've used Robinhood for about 6 months now and I love it. I follow Zack's trades online and have managed to do pretty good for myself for someone with no experience trading. Who do you guys follow for trade advice? OP if you get on zacks.com you can sign up and see the #1 trades recommended by them under $10 and many more. I think its a good place to start.

Here is a prime example of a company/people who were shysters and a very good reason why people who buy penny stacks should research the companies they buy to make sure they are profitable before buying. Otherwise, you are gambling, not investing. There are beaucoup (boo-koo ) other companies like this in the penny stock market. In fact, the vast majority of penny stock companies are already bankrupt and walking dead with little to no revenues and a negative net worth (essentially bankrupt). Just a word of advice: check out any companies' fundamentals before buying a stock. Who would want to invest in a company with little to no revenues and is losing money? There are exceptions to the rule. Gambling on these companies is a different matter, and certainly some people do make money playing in this market.

My 2 cents, but investing in what you think are solid companies is the way to go. I would also look for information/recommendations that back you up, as in stocks that others recommend. I started playing around with a TD Ameritrade account about 18 months ago, my timing was pretty good. The TD Ameritrade has some pretty good educational and research. I don't know how this compares to other stuff out there, because I never looked. At first I made more trades, but once I settled on some good companies I sort of stopped "trading". I am just playing around with it, but I have invested real money. (not my retirement money per SE). I figure if the stocks I have purchased become worthless we are all in big trouble. (AABA, AAPL, CSCO, EMR, FB, MCD, NOK, ORLC, PG, TGT, VZ, WMT, XOM).

The market is bound to drop, but that is impossible to predict. Plus if you sell you have to also consider the tax implications.

I purchased a load of a cheap stock. It was down on its luck and trading at sub $2.

Goes by the symbol F. Take a look. Trading now at about $11.

Not every cheap stock is a waste of money.

Little off topic...

Anyone got some good literature for me to read for just getting in to it? I have a solid/stable retirement between my 401k and company stock. I understand them pretty well. I consider myself an intelligent guy. Engineer by trade. Understand math and numbers. Just need to do some reading and learn the lingo, etc then slowly get my feet wet.

Mainly looking at books to read. But not opposed to articles.

I like to refer people to bogleheads.org. Lots of great info in the forums and they maintain their own Wiki page which is FULL of great info along with recommended books. Random Walk Down Wall Street, Little Book of Common Sense investing...etc

I bought some Groupon (GRPN) hoping they have reinvented themselves with a new CEO and programs. It's a risky one. I had bought some SQ around $9 bucks and sold when it got to $14 then it dropped. I thought, man I made a great decision. Today it is over $42/share. That was over a year ago. So you can find stocks under $10 or $5 but a lot of times they are down there for a reason.
