    I've been thinking about investing some money into penny stocks... I've heard stories of 17 year old kids earning 300k in a couple of months and also that its a complete lotto.

    I like getting really stuck into stuff like this. I'd learn everything about it beforehand and become obsessive with it ect.

    Would i be wasting my money? or can this genuinely be a decent earner?

    Well there's a reason a stock gets to be a penny stock... it's because the market has had a look at it and decided it doesn't have a good future - in the majority of cases this turns out to be correct - 99.9999% of companies aren't about to be the next microsoft, google, facebook or dyson vacuum cleaners.

    they can pay off but most of my analytic research was just industry that are dying like coal mining or tiny companies in more negative than positive views like fracking
