Roy Philipose, Investor from Philadelphia. I have a passion for finance and knowledge for "picking stocks."

I use a combination of fundamental analysis, common business sense, capitalist vision, and real world experience to "pick stocks." I follow the investment advice of Peter Lynch and Warren Buffett. Currently, I work in the financial services field. I have been investing on a part-time basis for 21 years, since 1997.

A/X Portfolio 2018

By Roy Philipose

Here is an updated list of 10 stocks that are part of the "A/X Portfolio." This portfolio should return at least 15% per year. The majority of these companies are led by their founder and have strong growth potential. Changes to A/X: I have replaced Under Armour (sports apparel) for Square (retail payments).

There are more good stocks out there, but I don't have the time to research them all. I plan to add myself to TipRanks (stock pick ratings).

My overall track record for picking stocks speaks for itself.

2017 S&P 500 + 18.74%
2017 A/X Portfolio + 156.38%

For 2017, the big winner was Bitcoin and the big loser was Under Armour.
