Penny Stocks: 2 to Buy, 2 to Avoid

Penny stocks can be simply defined as stocks that trade at less than $5 per share. Of course, there are other criteria such as trade volume and market cap that some will check before labeling something as an official penny stock, but for the purposes of this article, we'll stick to just share price. These "cheap" stocks are typically exciting but far too risky to be worthy of any serious consideration by traditional investors. However, the biotech space is arguably one intriguing exception to this general rule of thumb.   Biotech stocks, after all, can fall hard and fast on a single clinical or regulatory setback.

Immanuel Kant, from Conjectural Beginning of Human History | Bill Soderberg, Philosopher at large on

[In the following passage from Conjectural Beginning of Human History (from On History, ed by Lewis White Beck, Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill Educational Publishing, 1963, pp. 63-65), Kant follows the general outline of the Book of Genesis and offers some speculations on the beginning of human history.

What is speculative demand for money?

Imagine this situation:A lender wants to hold money in cash form because he thinks it's better than investing it. A borrower wants to borrow money to do something with it. This creates a demand for money. Why would this happen?Interest rates are low. The lender doesn't want to lend (invest) because he's not getting a good enough return and the borrower wants to borrow because he's getting a great rate to borrow at. So, both want cash. That creates a demand for cash. If interest rates rise, then borrowers don't want to borrow as much because they'll have to pay more interest and lenders want to lend to take advantage of the high rates.
