  • My list of High-Risk/High Reward companies is not for the faint of heart, but it provides the opportunity to capture significant alpha if purchased at the right time.
  • I have purposely chosen this list to include high-quality companies, but some of these names have fallen deeply out of favor with investors.
  • Taking advantage of this list of companies requires the skill of trading because not all of them are entirely suitable for buy & holds.
  • I purposely left out the secular mega-cap winners (FAAMG) since they are already owned by many retail investors.
  • It’s best to practice risk management on these names in order to ensure a winning trade’s gains do not fade away or a loss becomes too large.

Wow what a miss! Biggest losers of the year listed with buy ratings back in january. The author better becomes a index investor instead of doing stock picking!
I thought this was a list to buy - not to avoid!
ROKU's original content is good and I like the Roku channel but they either need to dial back the commercials.
Excellent choice! I think they will do well this year.
Thanks for the very well written and succinct analyses.

Buying"stocks" that are controlled by the China communist government is just too risky. These "stocks" are not even stocks but VIEs. You have no rights to the underlying company. GLTA
Also own BABA and EDU. Wouldnt have bought them had there not been the surprising crackdown. Although they are both in red, it’s been an interesting journey and learning experience.

You were able to provide succinct, bite-sized reviews, from a contrarian perspective, on several issues that I'm now interested in looking at anew.
