How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

Want to know the Truth? Most Stocks SUCK!

Companies / Investing 2022 Mar 08, 2022 - 10:03 PM GMT

By: Stephen_McBride

Companies Today I’m uncovering a “truth” about investing almost nobody understands.

This truth explains why most investors struggle to make any real money in the stock market… while a few achieve life-changing gains.

The truth is… most stocks suck.

Forgive me for the crude language.

There’s simply no other word that so accurately sums up my thoughts on the vast majority of stocks: 

They suck.

Let me show you what I mean... and how you can turn this truth into an edge that’ll let you beat 99% of investors.


  • Last year, JP Morgan Asset Management published a great paper called The Agony & The Ecstasy.

It’s a deep dive into the performance of the US stock market over the past 40 years.

JPMorgan found almost half of stocks suffered a “catastrophic loss” from 1980 to 2020. Meaning they plunged 70%+ and never recovered.

Another 26% of stocks handed out returns lower than the overall market.

In other words, roughly eight in 10 stocks were total duds that cost investors money.

But you surely know the US stock market is a lot higher than it was 40 years ago.

How is that possible when eight in 10 stocks are losers?

Turns out, all of the market’s returns came from just 10% of stocks, which JPMorgan called “megawinners.” In short, this elite group of stocks performed so well, they pulled the entire market up with them.

Whether you’re measuring early-stage startups… or large stocks, you can’t escape this investing truth.

Lots of losers… a few big winners.

In short, the odds are stacked against investors from the start. It’s no wonder most stock market investors struggle to even keep up with inflation.

This is why picking individual stocks isn’t for everyone. In fact, many folks are better off owning a broad basket of US stocks or buying indexes.

By simply owning the S&P 500 ETF (SPY), you would have doubled your money over the past five years. That’s a good, stress-free option.

But investors who really want to get rich have to hunt for “megawinners.”

  • “Stephen… how do I find these elite stocks?”

It’s a lot easier once you know what to look for.

Here are the top-performing large US stocks over the past 10 years:



These megawinners aren’t all household names. But most of them share one key trait: They are disruptors.

Longtime RiskHedge readers know disruptors are companies that change the world and invent the future. Take a quick look at the top three megawinners.

Tesla rocketed to the top of the list by pioneering affordable electric cars.

Repligen invented machines pharma companies use to make life-saving drugs.

And America’s largest chipmaker, Nvidia, is the “brains” behind the most important artificial intelligence (AI) projects in the world today.

  • Our job at RiskHedge is to get you into these disruptive megawinners.

We invest in companies pioneering whole new industries and transforming old ones.

The above list shows businesses that achieve these feats routinely turn out to be megawinners… and can hand you 1,000%+ gains, or sometimes a lot more, over the course of a decade.

For example, I made a big call back in 2018.

I said if I could only buy one stock for the next five years… it would be Nvidia (NVDA). The stock has more than tripled since then:



Why did I choose Nvidia?

It ticked all the boxes to be a megawinner. The disruptive chipmaker almost single-handedly revived the dream of creating artificial intelligence (AI) with its revolutionary chip called the GPU.

Not only are these chips responsible for the lifelike video game graphics we have today…

These gaming chips are perfect for training machines to “think” like humans.

This breakthrough has helped Nvidia grow its AI-related data center sales 1,356% over the past five years.

Remember, disruptive megawinners routinely pioneer whole new industries. This allows them to grow uninterrupted year after year.

Nvidia’s stock has handed out 14X gains over the past five years.

So next time you think about buying a stock, remember the truth:

Most stocks suck.

If you want to get rich investing, you must own the “megawinners.”

Here at RiskHedge, we’re committed to finding them for you… and helping you profit off them for years to come.
