Care to guess how many stocks have gained 30% or more so far in 2017? According to Finviz.com, out of 1,747 stocks with a market cap of $2 billion or higher, 555 have delivered YTD performance of 30% or more. Naturally, as 2017 comes to a close, most investors will dwell on the ones that got away this past year.

With the benefit of hindsight, there were a couple of seeming no-brainers that anyone could have picked: Weight Watchers International (WTW), Oprah's little darling, and Universal Display (OLED), whose reign at the top of the Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) display industry shows no signs of letting up. It's easy to look back at the year that's passed and wish you'd bought these two stocks that are up 276% and 231% year to date, respectively.

There are plenty of others. You can learn a lot from the stocks you didn't own this year that will help you be a better investor next year. Here are 10 stocks I wish I'd owned in 2017.
