As I walk the halls of the high school one of the things I tend to do is pick up change that the students ignore... don't laugh! It's free money and I'm up nearly $30 in change this school year :)
Anyways, today I picked up what looked like a penny only to find that it was a fake penny made of plastic.
The timing and humor of it was perfect! How many people out there get into penny stocks for the wrong reasons? Picking up a penny stock because they think its a real company with potential or chasing the hype of a promoter, only to be left holding a fake plastic coin with the word "copy" plastered over it.
I guess the point here is don't hang on to fake pennies... they are not investments only tools to trade.
