It's that time of year again! My Top 5 Stocks for 2020 Webinar will be out next week. (UPDATE: it is finally out: https://www.optionmillionaires.com/top-5-stocks-2020-webinar/ )As I say each year:
"If there is one area in the markets I feel I can truly hang my hat on and call my own, it is finding stocks before the herd - seeing a gem when everyone else sees a dirty rock. Hopefully that continues in 2020. There is nothing like the feeling of stumbling on something big and undiscovered while doing some due diligence. The icing on the cake is seeing it come to fruition."
For those new to my Top 5 webinars, here are some of the things I look for:

2019 was the third year in a row my Top 5 picks had exceeded my 35% target before the first half of the year was over. By the end of June the 5 stocks were up 54.77% on average vs. 17.33% for the S&P:

My big regret this past year was not putting ROKU on the list coming into 2019. I have been a big bull on it since its first earnings report post IPO, but thought other names would perform better to start the year. It is rare to find a name in the early stages of growth like ROKU - where it is such a misunderstood story- and provided an epic opportunity. Folks argued with me that it was just a hardware company and Amazon, Apple, and others will eat their lunch... heck, many still do despite its 400% appreciation this year. No-one was going long at $30, now everyone is touting the stock at $150. A great example of how sentiment plays such a large role in some of these early growth names. Needless to say, hope to bring another ROKU in 2020.
