I have a passion for business and investing and use a combination of fundamental analysis, common business sense, and real world experience to pick stocks. I follow the investment advice of Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, and others. I primarily work in the financial field and have over 20 years (part-time) of stock picking experience, starting in 1997. Careerwise, my goal is to become a fund manager.

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.
