Penny Shares?
« on: November 08, 2017, 05:50:47 pm »
Been around a while, but just recently have time (forced 8)) to look into investing.
Seen this advertised on tele quite a lot, redhotpennyshares / howtoinvestinshares
Any good? Or should I look into other avenues to learn more?

Are you asking about if penny shares are a worthwhile investment?

Yes, would subscribing to them be worthwhile?

I'm inclined to say "if you have to ask...".

They're way too risky to start out with. A couple of cents movement can either double or halve your investment.
