Top Textile Penny Stocks: Small textile companies are present in the early stage of the value chain producing yarns & fabric, engaged in contract manufacturing, or more. Their valuations trail behind larger companies because of business size and derived demand.
However, these textile penny stocks can be lucrative investments for risk-taking investors who think larger companies are overvalued. In this article, we present a list of top textile penny stocks for such risk-loving investors.
But before we rush to the list, for starters, let us know what a penny stock is.
What is a Penny Stock?
Penny stocks are the shares of small-cap companies, usually having a market capitalization of less than Rs. 500 crores. The companies have low share prices of less than Rs. 85 or so. The stock can trade for as rock-bottom as Rs 1 or even 50 paise a piece.
A penny stock has relatively lesser liquidity. In addition to this, it can come with restrictions of delivery only, no margin trading, and more.
Risk-loving investors are always searching for penny stocks in the hope of earning multi-bagger gains. However, penny stocks often implode as often as they go up. Retail investors should exercise extreme caution while putting their money in penny stocks.
