Hi Milan,

In the US, controllers have characterized a penny stock as a security that meets various explicit norms. The standards incorporate value, advertise capitalization, and least investor value. Protections exchanged on a national stock trade, paying little mind to cost, are absolved from administrative assignment as a penny stock, since it is believed that trade exchanged protections are less defenseless against manipulation. Thusly, Citigroup (NYSE:C) and other NYSE-recorded protections, which exchanged beneath $1.00 during the market downturn of 2008–09, while appropriately viewed as "low-estimated" protections, were not in fact "penny stocks." 
Even though penny stock exchanging the US is presently basically controlled through principles and guidelines authorized by the SEC and FINRA, the beginning of this control is found in State protection law. The Territory of Georgia was the primary state to arrange a thorough penny stock protection law. Secretary of State Max Cleland, whose office implemented State protections laws, was a foremost advocate of the enactment. Delegate Chesley V. Morton, the main stockbroker in the Georgia General Gathering at that point, was the chief backer of the bill in place of Delegates. Georgia's penny stock law was therefore tested in court. Be that as it may, the law was in the end maintained in U.S. Area Court, and the resolution turned into the layout for laws authorized in different states. Presently, both FINRA and the SEC ordered far-reaching corrections of their penny stock guidelines.
These guidelines demonstrated powerful in shutting or significantly limiting agent/sellers, for example, Blinder, Robinson, and Friends, which had practical experience in the penny stocks part. Meyer Blinder was imprisoned for protections extortion in 1992, after the breakdown of his firm.
