Cheap stocks are always popular, and it is with good reason. Not everyone has a sizeable investment account and cheap stocks allow you to distribute your money around. Instead of investing everything into one or two shares of a tech giant or renewable energy company, you can take that same amount of cash and diversify.
Doing so makes investing more interesting. It also protects you from a catastrophic loss should one of those expensive stocks suddenly drop in value.
