Best stocks under 10 cents to buy now
by Scarlett S. Stock Market Analyst
Did you know, Canadian markets host several stocks under 10 cents? Market experts often call out penny stocks for their risky nature. However, investors are often on the lookout to reap solid returns from minimal investments.
Stocks trading under C$ 5 with small market caps are identified as penny stocks. In Canada, these stocks are primarily found on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE), TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV), and also on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).
In this article, however, we will not explore the typical penny stocks. Instead, we will explore stocks that under a dime. Often, investors distribute their funds across various investment instruments purchasing shares, bonds, debentures, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to build a diversified portfolio. It minimizes the risk and also allows them to expand into sectors. But the basics of the equity market also tell us that there no such thing as a risk-free investment.
On that note, we are discussing stocks under 10 cents. Before we get to the list of shortlisted stocks, here are a few essential details to know about these stocks:
Where can you find stocks under 10 cents?
Stocks valued under 10 cents generally have a meager market cap and fall under the category of micro or nano-cap stocks, which means that their market cap is under C$ 50 million. Generally, one can find these stocks in the over-the-counter (OTC) or pink sheets market. But in this article, we explore a few stocks listed on the TSXV and the CSE.
So, if you are willing to delve into the Canadian equity markets but don't want to park large sums of funds, cheap stocks are an enticing way to start the journey.
What are the advantages of these stocks?
Stocks available in the OTC markets are often considered dubious because the companies are not required to disclose official documents. Due to this, investors never get to evaluate accurate information about the company.
However, the biggest advantage of stocks listed on major Canadian stock exchanges is the access to company information via the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR).
Most companies listed on exchanges like the CSE and the TSXV want to enter the bigger leagues and get listed on the TSX or an American stock exchange like NYSE or the Nasdaq stock market. Therefore, there's always a chance that these stocks may grow in future, and today's bet may likely convert into a jackpot.
With the risk comes a chance of converting small investments into huge profits. High returns can be difficult with a high-priced stock and require significant capital investments.
Low-cost stocks can return big within a short span, and investors might cash on it.

What are the disadvantages?
Stocks of companies trading under 10 cents might be financially weaker, and their balance sheet can be pretty disappointing. So, there is a high chance of the company's inability to sustain itself in the long run and going bankrupt.
Also, brokers may have different opinions of these stocks, and it may get difficult for an investor to buy or sell these stocks later.
If trading with assistance from a broker, there are chances that the broker will charge a higher commission for stocks under 10 cents and a lower commission on traditional stocks.
