Penny stocks are far more likely to lead to financial ruin than riches, and the hands-down most effective way to make money in stocks is to buy great companies and hold them for the long haul.

With that in mind, here’s why three of our contributors think Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B), Oaktree Capital (NYSE:OAK), and BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) are excellent penny stock alternatives.

Range Resources gained 4.1% to $28.47, while the S&P 500 slipped 0.3% to2,375.31.

Barron’s Andrew Bary called Range Resources “an unappreciated energy play.” He explains why:

Range drilled the first well in the now-prolific Marcellus region of Pennsylvania more than a decade ago and amassed one of its largest land positions there610,000 acres. Its $4.2 billion purchase of Memorial Resource Development last September gave it access to what the company views as a prolific and underappreciated gas region: northern Louisiana

Top 10 Penny Stocks To Invest In 2019

There is a certain allure to penny stocks. The idea of loading up on a mountain of shares that trade for a couple of dollars (or less) and watching the stock skyrocket is almost akin to having a winning lottery ticket. Problem is, penny stocks are also like the lottery because probably one in a few thousand actually pay off and you are likely going to waste a lot of money trying to chase that one winner.

For people looking to build wealth, penny stocks simply aren’t worth it. You’re better off pursuing well-run businesses and letting the power of their earnings grow your position over the long haul. So we asked three of our Motley Fool investors to choose stocks they like right now that would be good alternatives. Here’s why they picked Cleveland-Cliffs (NYSE:CLF), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), and Franco-Nevada Corporation (NYSE:FNV).

Best Penny Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Finding hidden gems in the stock market is every investor’s dream. Those stocks with massive upside potential that no one is paying attention to yet are like needles in the market’s haystack of investible names.

Many times these diamonds in the rough are found in the small-cap market.

Small-caps are public companies with a market cap of roughly $300 million to $4 billion. Above $4 billion, a company moves into the mid-cap category. Below $300 million, a company is considered to be part of the micro-cap or even penny stock segments.

The small-cap sector is indeed the sweet spot of the stock market. While penny stocks and micro-caps have greater volatility, and therefore more potential, the risk factor is just too high for most conservative investors. Despite recently lagging, the small-cap market is well known for outperforming the overall market in the long term.

I have identified three under-the-radar small-cap stocks boasting colossal upside potential:

Top Penny Stocks For 2019

Over the years, a diminishing number of employers have offered pensions to their workers. Between the early 1990s and the early 2010s, pension plan availability fell roughly by half, from about one in three workers having access to a pension 25 years ago, to only one in six more recently. If you’re fortunate enough to work for an employer that gives you a chance to get pension payments when you retire, it’s important to know what you need to do in order to make the most of them. That way, when you decide to end your career, you’ll know you’ll be getting every penny available to you to last you the rest of your life.

Although pension income is a valuable retirement benefit that can supplement your Social Security benefits and make your retirement a lot more financially secure, it also comes with some extra responsibilities. Your monthly pension payment almost always counts as taxable income, and you’ll need to make sure that you have enough taxes withheld from your pension payments to satisfy the Internal Revenue Service.
