OTC and Pink Sheet Stock Screener
1. What are OTC Stocks?
OTC Stocks are stocks that are traded via a broker-dealer network, which is opposite to a centralized exchange like New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or Nasdaq Stock Exchange.
Small businesses are frequently prevented from listing on the NYSE or Nasdaq since it costs $295,000 and up to $75,000, respectively. On the OTC markets, some well-known big corporations are listed, including Allianz SE, BASF SE, Roche Holding AG, and Danone SA.
2. How do you buy OTC Stocks?
Determine the precise security to acquire and the investment amount before purchasing a stock on the OTC market. One of the biggest and most reputable markets for OTC equities is OTCQX. Most brokers in exchange-listed securities also deal in over-the-counter (OTC) stocks, which can be done over the phone or electronically on a broker's platform.
3. What are the three levels of OTC Stocks?
The penny stocks, shell firms, and bankruptcy-related businesses that trade for less than $5 are not listed on the OTCQX. Only 4% of OTC stocks are traded on the OTCQX, which has the most demanding reporting requirements and SEC scrutiny.
It includes some American businesses that intend to list on the NYSE or the Nasdaq in the future and foreign companies that list on foreign exchanges.
The OTCQB is frequently referred to as the "venture market" due to the concentration of emerging businesses subject to some regulation and financial reporting requirements to the SEC.
The riskiest OTC trading level is Pink Sheets, which has no obligations to file financial reports or register with the Securities and Exchange Commission. On the Pink Sheets, there are some trustworthy enterprises, but there are also a lot of shell companies and businesses that are purely for show.
