On Nasdaq's site, (www.nasdaq.com) they have an option for 'Symbol look up'. If you click on this and scroll down, you'll see that you have a further option to choose from Nasdaq, Amex, NYSE or OTCBB (Over the Counter Big Board)

To the best of my knowledge, every stock on the OTCBB is a penny stock. If you really want to look at these, this could get you started.

One thing to think about is that there's at least one on-line broker (Ameritrade is the one I know) that will let you open an account with $500, and they'll also give you free market order trades for a month. (There may be other brokers with even better deals)

This would allow you to invest in (possibly) better stocks than the pennies w/o having a commission take a huge chunk out of your funds. Please remember there's a reason why these stocks only cost a few pennies. Best of luck.
