5 Penny Stocks With Plenty of Reward

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - The S&P Small Cap 600 Index registered gains of 9.8% in the past three months as compared to a 6.4% gain recorded by the S&P Index. The current market volatility has thrown up an abundance of penny stocks to suit speculative investors, with many priced below $5. Although investors prefer safe and stable stocks when markets gyrate, they also can consider these penny stocks for potential reward.

Based on average estimates of analysts polled by Bloomberg, these five stocks have potential upsides ranging from 29% to 205%, with an average of 61% of analysts issuing buy ratings.

The stocks are listed in ascending order of upside potential.

Of the 12 analysts covering the stock, 75% recommend a buy and 16.7% suggest a hold. Analysts' average 12-month price target for the stock is $2.28, about 28.9% higher than the current price, according to Bloomberg.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2011, SIRI reported total revenue of $763 million, up 6% from the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA rose 16% to $197 million. Net income was up 54% at $104 million, while free cash flow increased 22%.

In October, SIRI launched an expanded channel lineup, such as new music, comedy, sports as well as Sirius XM Latino, a suite of Latin channels.

For fiscal 2012, SIRI anticipates revenue growth of 10% to over $3.3 billion and adjusted EBITDA of 20% to $860 million.
