These are penny stocks. The Fool's general position on penny stocks is to avoid them. Such stocks are too often open to manipulation, e.g., through "pump and dump" scams.

It's possible for a really experienced investor who knows what he is doing -- like Peter Lynch -- to make money on penny stocks, just as it it possible for a really experienced sailer to sail around the world on a sailboat. Most people, however, cannot do these things. These things are certainly not recommeded for non-experts.
