Practical Advice from

10 High-Risk, High-Reward Stocks to Buy Now

The conventional wisdom about investing says to manage risk or avoid it. Buy solid companies. Hold for the long term. “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price,” as Warren Buffett put it.

Of course, that’s not nearly as fun — and, indeed, it’s not always the best advice. Higher-risk, higher-reward plays should have a place in younger investors’ portfolios, in particular. And a little bit of risk can add some focus — and potentially some return — to diversified holdings for older investors as well.

Toward that goal, here are 10 high-risk, high-reward stocks. It’s worth reiterating that these stocks only are for risk-tolerant investors and only for a small part of a portfolio.

And in all cases, investors need to make their own decisions as to which side of the trade to take. These stocks are likely to move big, but that can cut both ways.
