I love to scout for overlooked stocks that have potential to become a multi-bagger, but also have only little risks. To get a ten-bagger, you must have a long investment horizon. I personally have the ability to invest into stocks for more than 30 years in order to participate with the company’s operational success. Potential multi-bagger have a strong brand and should be heavily intertwined in the society. They must be so meaningful that they are indispensable and hardly to replace. Such companies will never go out of business and they will always pay good dividends. Here are three diversified stocks with a leading market share:
