While most of Wall Street focuses on large and large cap stocks because they provide a degree of safety and liquidity, many investors are limited in the number of stocks they can buy. Many of the largest public companies, especially the tech giants, trade in the hundreds, up to over $ 1,000 a share or more. At these high prices, it’s hard to get decent leverage on the number of shares.
Many investors, especially the more aggressive traders, see low-priced stocks not only as a way to make money, but also to get more stocks. It can really help the decision making process especially when you are on a winner because you can always sell half and keep half.
