No doubt, a strong portfolio typically includes stocks with robust fundamentals and solid track records. In a bull market, these investments provide healthy returns and protect against capital erosion. However, we should not overlook the benefits of owning penny stocks, either. The get-rich-quick angle with these picks is a real possibility. That’s why they continue to garner investor interest.
That said, penny stocks can also be a double-edged sword. Naturally, everyone is attracted to the low price tag. But it’s extremely important to understand which stocks are trading at a bargain and which ones are trading cheaply. The former can have real potential to super-charge your portfolio.
With the retail-trading frenzy we’ve seen this year, it seems like it doesn’t take much to move the needle for these low-priced picks. This is due in part to highly active social media forums who closely follow the sector, such as Reddit’s r/WallStreetBets. Ultimately, though, everyone is looking for massive profits from their investments.

New York-based roadside-style burger joint Shake Shack (NYSE:SHAK) recently put the final wrap on 2018, notching a rebound in same-store sales growth along with the rest of the restaurant industry.

Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more.
