OTC Markets Stock Exchange
What is OTC?
The OTC Markets group of marketplaces is the leader for Over The Counter (OTC) stocks. OTC stocks are a very popular category of market investments. The marketplace is located in New York, NY and averages more than $500 Million dollars in daily transaction volume. On busier days, investors have exchanged over $1 Billion dollars trading OTC stocks.
Companies listed on the OTC Markets are sometimes referred to as Pink Sheet stocks or Penny Stocks. This is due to the relaxed listing requirements of the stock exchange marketplace compared to the older New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and other large capitalization exchanges. The minimal requirements make the marketplace popular for start-up companies. The start ups can generate capital to fund their businesses in exchange equity. These young companies normally have a low market capitalization and often a lower price per share. The traditionally low price per share (under $1) is why over the counter stocks are often referred to as penny stocks.
However the companies listed on stock exchange otc are from all market sectors and sizes. Notable companies listed on the OTC Stock Market include Nestle (OTCPK:NSRGY), Siemens (OTCPK:SIEGY), Deutsche Telekom (OTCQX: DTEGY), Heineken (OTCQX:HEINY), and BNP Paribas (OTCQX: BNPQY). Even American based companies are listed on the OTC such as WalMart of Mexico (OTCQX:WMMVY) while the parent company, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., is listed on the NYSE under ticker symbol WMT.
