MarketWatch's "five risky stocks with big potential payoffs" - 75%-plus earnings growth over the next 12 months based on analyst consensus but with at least three times the volatility of the S&P 500: Meritor (MTOR), Genworth Financial (GNW), Century Aluminum (CENX), Dana Holding (DAN), CBL & Associates (CBL).

    You could identify hundreds of "risky stocks with big potential payoffs," so this article is purely speculative. This market is wildly inefficient now, for a variety of reasons, so who knows whether any of these stocks will provide much of anything. Betting on "big potential payoffs" is a way to lose a lot of money in the market. I say that being a very aggressive investor (not trader). It's akin to buying a stock because it is, in the eyes of CNBC-esque talking-heads, "an attractive takeover candidate." That's also a great way to lose money.
