With a five-year horizon, any potential 2-3x baggers left?

I missed bitcoin, SHOP, NXE, CGC in 2016.

Sold BBD, AIM, AAL too soon. :(

Any stock, besides weeds, TSLA and altcoins, with a potential 100-300% return over five years and why do you think so?

Too lazy to type why, but I think msft, aapl and FB will be 2-3x in next couple of years. Also I think SHOP has lots of gas left in it - can touch 300-400$ in next 2-3 years with the growth they are showing

Very low market cap compared to the heavy hitters in China ( baba, jd , tencent)

They have a strong hold in the search market and market leader in ai

I think Gran Colombia Gold (GCM) might be one. Problem is the jurisdiction is less stable but almost 200k ounces of gold production.

The company is raising funds to pay off all current debentures. Current debenture holders have been very accommodating and insiders have been buying debentures. The devil is in the new debt offering details.

I think the company is trying not to dilute common shareholders with the pending August 2018 debenture mandatory conversion (81% I believe).

This gold stock is cheaper than many non-producing gold plays.

Yeah missed out on BTC and ETH for sure. Too late to get in now. I missed Apple when it was $92 (dip before pre-Trump regime) but got on few names on Tech wave including AMZN, TSLA, and SHOP. I recently missed out on steel companies like X and AKS (Trump infrastructure) so I got it bit late (got in last week when we had 10% correct in market)

Now eyeing on bio/health care ones.

Wait for market crash. Highly likely within 5 years.

I'm not talking about indexing. I am talking specific stocks.

Unless it's as grave as r/e subprime and toxic assets (that regained their valuation in a few years), it's not going to be anything like 2009.

The consensus seems to be that we are in the later stages of a bull market so four sectors that typically perform well in the later stages -

1/ Consumer cyclicals - like (believe or not) retail
2/ Mining and materials
3/ Energy - consensus seems to point to that even with the increasing US supply, the oil glut that the world has been having will be no-more in the next few months so prices should start going upwards. So, oil services and smaller producers (two stocks - TCW which is making good money in this environment and will only make more when drilling increases and CJ which is supporting a 10% dividend in this market...)
4/ Interest sensitive like banks and life cos. - kind of a two edge sword on this as while they will make more money as the spread increases, they are primarily thought of as a dividend play so they will get held back to a certain extent at some point when the dividend starts looking not so good compared to bond yields.

As for individual stocks, if you like risk, look for leveraged plays in each of these sectors as they are down the most but will have the most to gain as the cycle moves on.

You can say that for any 5 year period as corrections tend to happen yearly with larger ones typically happening once every 5 to 7 years. The problem with waiting is that you don't have any gains while waiting...

Tech stocks usually go up crazy at the last bull run. Stocks like AMZN, FB are likely to go much higher before the year end.

MU will do this. Probably is close to the 100% mark within a year as the market slowly realizes you can't argue with the fundamentals as earnings pileup.

OP, a 5 year horizon 2x banger.

If it's a mining stock, then my pick would be one pick only 'GOLD' mining stock ABX, should it get close to the $10 mark, then its mortgage your whole life & assets, include the wife, kids, grandparents to buy $1 million dollars worth of ABX

^ Can I mortgage a 70-year old acquaintance too?

You think gold will hit $3k in the next five years?

Why do you think so after BBD receding control of C Series to Airbus (through a partnership) without any monetary incentive?

leave the 70 year old alone unless its your parents or in-laws

"will gold hit $3k in 5-years", I haven't a clue

If its not gold, then my second pick for a 2x in 5 years would be Boeing
