While these penny stocks provided shareholders with spectacular gains last weekend, they also illustrated the dangers involved with investing in penny stocks.

You see, if a penny stock like Cartesian Inc. can jump 170% in a few hours, it can fall to $0.00 in the same amount of time.

The risk of these kinds of losses is why we follow five rules for investing in penny stocks - take a look at our rules for investing in penny stocks on the right.

Rules for Safely Trading Penny Stocks

  • No more than 2% of your overall stock portfolio should consist of penny stocks.
  • Avoid stocks with average daily trading volume of less than 500,000 shares.
  • Avoid penny stocks being aggressively promoted on public discussion forums or websites not focused on investing.

Here are the top three warning signs of a shell company scam, according to the SEC and FINRA...

  • If a company has been dormant for many years and then brought back to life.
  • If a company has changed its name and, especially, business focus multiple times.
  • Check for massive reverse stock splits like 1-for-20,000 or 1-for-50,000.

Entravision Communications Is the Top Penny Stock to Buy This Week

Entravision Communications Co. (NYSE: EVC) is a Spanish language media company based in Santa Monica, Calif.

The Company maintains both radio and television stations in 20 of the nation's top 50 Spanish-speaking markets and operates 58 primary television stations across the country.

Entravision's profit potential lies with the rapidly expanding Latino community, which makes up the majority of the company's viewing base.

From 2000 to 2014, Latinos accounted for more than 50% of the nation's total population growth, bringing the nation's total Latino population to roughly 55 million people.

Over the next 10 years, the American Latino population is expected to expand by another 24 million Latino Americans - an increase of over 30%

This growing audience is already showing in the company's growth. Over the last year, the company had a ROE of 49.84%. That's over 350% higher than the industry average of 11.99%.

With an expanding consumer market continually seeking new content from major Hispanic media outlets, it's likely that Entravision will experience sustained growth well into the future.

And Wall Street agrees with us. Analysts have put a high price target of $11 on the company's stock - a 139% increase on today's price of $4.60.

Entravision offers an immense profit for penny stock investors.

But you don't have to stick with penny stocks to find explosive profits in the stock market, and we can show you how...
