But one of the top penny stocks to watch in October could gain anyway. Some of the best penny stocks to watch now saw double digit-returns in the last week of September alone.

Before we show you one of the top penny stocks, let's look at why penny stocks can be rewarding to investors during market volatility.
According to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, penny stocks are stocks that trade for $5 or less per share. That's a very affordable entry point for investors. And movement in just pennies of a share price can send the penny stock soaring.
A $0.25 gain on a $1 stock is a 25% increase. A $0.25 move on a $100 stock is a small 0.25% gain. That's a huge difference in returns.

Penny stocks typically gain from an underlying firm's good news. Most of these firms are in the startup stages. News of a new product, an acquisition in the industry, or a drug approval could send them to the stratosphere.
But not all penny stocks have positive movement. Of course, this is true of any stock. Penny stocks are risky because the stocks are often volatile. A $0.25 decrease in a $1 stock could realistically happen as well.
Even with the risk, the best penny stocks to watch in October 2019 could see double-digit gains in a volatile market.
