Investors could never have predicted that stocks of GameStop and AMC Entertainment could soar to the prices they did. The unprecedented short squeezes shook Wall Street and the rest of the world.
Some of the returns created some serious FOMO amongst both seasoned and amateur investors—and there has been a huge surge in interest in investing ever since. Young keen investors want to know what the next hot stock is to secure.
What they overlook, though, is how many also lost out due to the volatility of these trades. Day trading, unless you’re very experienced, is pretty much like being at the casino. You never know what’s going to happen next.
Crashes can happen so fast that investors can lose everything instantly. And even if you do happen to luck out, then you have to deal with the uncertainty of your next target.
While the odds for taking a chance on a meme stock are not in many investor’s favour, finding a growth stock—a small company that you can invest in early, that is expected to rise at an above-average rate—to invest in long term, is a less risky option that will likely give you just as good returns.All eyes on Alpha Tech
