4 Gold Penny Stocks to Buy Now

Penny on GoldGold prices and gold stocks have been on a parabolic rise, with the metal hitting record highs almost every day.  I expect the long-term bull market in precious metals to continue, because commodities represent one of the best investments in a weak U.S. dollar environment. And one of the best ways for aggressive traders to leverage this could be with penny stocks. Now, the stocks on this list might not be what you would consider "true penny stocks." But micro-cap pink sheet or OTC stocks that cost only a few cents per share are incredibly risky investments, which we do not advocate.
