Gonna have to look those up. Cramer is good some of the time, but most of the stocks he talks about are out of my price range. I usually have to stick to stocks under $10 just to be able to buy enough to turn a profit in a decent time frame.

One of the ways I've made money is , of course, looking for the downturn in a stock. My favorite one i did so far, was Smithfield Farms (SFD). When the swine flu hit, this stock plummetted. I did a little research and found out that none of their pigs had been or were a part of the infection. But them being one of the biggest pork producers, their stock took a huge hit. I bought on the downside and sold for a handsome profit when it came back up. I say its one of my favorites because nobody I talked to, had thought about it that way, buying pork stock during the swine flu outbreak, everybody thought I was nuts.

I bought 1,000 Gm (MTLQQ) last week at .458. Figured it was cheap enough, if I lost out, it wouldnt hurt too much. I figure it will come back eventually because the company is still going to be around for a long time. I wish I had bought some around .35, but didnt have the funds available when it was there.

I use a brokerage account from Wells Fargo that gives me 200 free trades a year.

Dont overvalue a penny stock, 1 share of apple @ 160.00
is probably safer than 1600 shares of a stock valued @.10

Apple has a lot of moat... where as a stock @.10 probably does not meaning very volatile/risky
Most investors will tell you penny stock is volatile than an regular stock.
I learned this the hard way. I have made more in stocks valued at more than $5.00 a share than not.
Of corse this does not mean $$ cannot be made.
Best luck to you

This is very good advice. There is a reason that they are penny stocks. Now is a good time to get into high quality equities, most of them are selling at significant discounts. Buy companies, do your research, and take a long term outlook.
