On the Penny Stocks To Watch blog, there was a list of stocks that were mentioned for one reason or another.  As a yearend wrap-up let’s take a look at the performance of these stocks and, if bought at that time what kind of return would have resulted from there to year end.

CMM.V – $0.45 – $0.445 – -1.2%

Total Return since October 19th is 71%.  If this doesn’t prove the power of penny stock investing I’m not sure what would.  The list from October is completely reflected here and hasn’t changed from the time of original posting.  The advancers and decliners are there and in our case the number of winners (8) outnumbers the losers (7). But even if that wasn’t the case, there were 4 stocks that reached over 100% in the past three months.  The poorest performing winner was 33%.  The worst laggard was MAA down 25%.

Did you pick up on SHH?  This one stock alone could have almost carried all of the losers on its back with a huge 600% return.  That could have made for some nice Christmas presents.  Maybe not every quarter will have a performance like this one, but it’s certainly worth considering adding penny stocks to the mix when these are real returns on a set of stocks.

The final part of the year in review series will be the look forward to 2011; what to expect and where penny stocks may play a part in the investing landscape.  Until then, happy investing.
