Penny stocks usually trade under $5 per share. Generally, most penny stocks are traded through over-the-counter, or OTC, transactions or similar methods. And while these stocks are typically considered to be high-risk, situational factors born through the rise of retail investors in 2020 have begun making them an interesting investment vehicle for many investors.

Small-Cap versus Large-Cap Stocks

While large-cap or blue-chip stocks like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), and JPMorgan Chase & Company (NYSE:JPM), among others, have typically dominated investor circles in the past, 2020 showed the rise of penny stocks and their popularity. This boom resulted in 10 of the best-performing stocks on the small-cap Russell 3000 share index surging by about 75% during the first three weeks of 2021. Additionally, the retail broker eToro reported the registration of over 380,000 new users in the first two weeks of 2021, adding on to the existing five million users. This growth in the platform's userbase showcased the immense growth in penny stock popularity among investor circles in 2021.

Artko Capital, an investment management company, mentioned U.S. Global Investors, Inc. (NASDAQ:GROW) in its fourth-quarter 2020 investor letter. Here's what they said:

“US Global Investors (GROW) – In 2Q 2020 we took a 4% position in a tiny asset manager with the expectation that with the eventual market recognition that its airline focused ETF, JETS, has grown from sub $100mm in assets to over $1.2b, would result in a substantial price adjustment. In short, rather than gamble in the wild casino of 2020 markets, we wanted to own the casino operator instead. This was a short term, earnings event driven investment and while we were hoping for a healthier pop, in the end we exited most of our position in low to mid $3s for a blended 30% return, the capital from which we committed to our purchase of ECOM, as our preference is usually to hold less risky, more longer-term oriented Core Portfolio positions.”
