Throughout the year I evaluate where I am investing for the following 6-18 months and often hold between 10 and 20 companies at one time. Some are shells waiting for a deal to be vended in or they are long term holds going through restructuring. I try to focus on the ones I think have the most growth potential over that 6-18 month time frame. We all want quick returns but we can often overlook good investments while chasing fast money. My watch list for high flyers is often 40-50 stocks and some I just trade in and out of and some I am waiting for them to hit my price for entry or exit. The following 10 stocks are highly valued in my opinion for what they can deliver to investors who are looking for strong growth with a hint of volatility over 2018. Some of these stocks I have been in for a long time and some I am a new investor or currently positioning myself. I doubt that I will own all of these stocks in 2019 but feel I will enjoy what they have to offer regardless over the next 12 months. That being said I still own shares in a company I bought 5 years ago that I said I was only going to hold short term so things can change as we all know.
We all have our own tolerance for risk and mine may be different in the sense that I have been known to go into some highly speculative stocks and obviously I don't win big every time. We are entering a time in investment history where many analysts believe we will have an extremely active and strong return in almost every sector. There seems to be a lot more money entering the markets and the surge in value seems to go beyond what we have historically seen. Some sectors will be slower than others but by diversifying our strategy we can take advantage of those about to run. All the best in 2018.
