Have you ever imagined 2020 to be that risky and aggressive stocks strategies to become popular more than ever before? Looking back to January 2020, many market players now are not feeling well about diversification or following the Wall street gurus’ strategies, like Warren Buffet, who invested for the long term into ‘real’ economy sectors.

On one hand, we could see classic crisis response when many investors shifted towards safe assets, like gold and other precious metals, while liquidating positions in companies that were previously considered as stable cash-flow generators like airlines and car manufacturers. On the other hand, we could see a unique situation when flocks of new and young Robinhood investors exploited the falling stock prices to “buy low” and contributed to the market volatility even more. In between those groups, many professional and retail investors were still unsure whether to go safe or ride on the market waves – they were forced to be more creative with their portfolios and go for the economic sectors that are connected to high-tech, medicine, and online retail. However, the prospects of those sectors were affected by many factors that needed to be accounted such as demand for services spike and the companies’ capability to address it.

Another stock class that was not new to the volatility while being recognized as ones providing higher than average returns was the aggressive stocks sector. An aggressive stock is a higher-risk investment that can potentially produce higher returns than more conservative stocks, but also has equal potential for bigger losses. Examples of aggressive stocks would include junior mining stocks, smaller technology stocks, and penny stocks. Therefore, these stocks that already were considered risky assets became not that aggressive within the new market realm.

As a general rule, an average non-conservative investor tries to limit aggressive stocks share within the portfolio to approximately 30% of the overall portfolio. At the same time, conservative investors could take up no more than 10% of a portfolio. An aggressive stock is often more highly leveraged (with more debt) and volatile than value or conservative stocks. That doesn’t mean one should avoid aggressive stock investing altogether. Even for conservative investors, there are very good reasons to add some aggressive stocks—in limited quantities—to their portfolios. In fact, if you choose the right aggressive stocks, they can offer the opportunity to earn bigger returns without exposing you to excessive risk. The next question is how to choose the right stocks and is it manageable for an ordinary investor?

One of I Know First clients decided to share his experience with the public about him elaborating on AI-driven predictions exclusively and following them until now. The approach was to take 1-month forecasts from the Aggressive stocks package and invest in the top 5 and 10 stocks indicated in the heatmap in separate portfolios. This experiment started on August 16, 2020, and the weights of the stocks in the portfolio were equal during the whole experiment – in other words, the strategy was buy-and-hold.
