    This is a cyber security company that has done pretty well for me.
    I bought on 8/17 and to date is up 74%

    I also really like Square SQ I think it can hit $300 next year, its currently at $215
    I got lucky and bought it in March and its up 371%

    Robinhood lets you buy partial shares I believe so you can get you feet wet.

    I was playing penny stocks for a little while, but almost all of the ones I got are either gone (bankrupt) or less than worthless.

    those are super risky, but they are great when they do hit

    I'm stuck with the worthless ones forever I haven't ever had one hit. I haven't bought any in forever, so I don't know where all the single shares came from

    If you want safe, then buy into a total market index fund.

    Hey you can sell the couple of big flops there for a tax write-off (in Canada at least), so at least there's that

    Agreed. More than half my portfolio is in ETF's. Lower management fees than mutual funds, and tons of diversity of funds to chose from.

    I like to read blogs on best performing [type] ETF of 2020, for whatever type of risk I'm looking for. So I've got a couple of US big-cap ETF's (top 60/top 100 companies), some big cap Canadian ETF's, one that I hold is a All Global ETF (which is especially nice because then I don't have to find a trading platform to buy from a bunch of random foreign stock exchanges, plus is spreads your risk if North American markets take a shit). You can also look for high dividend yield ETFs which are a very solid play as well.

    I also have a few niche ETF's like a medical equipment ETF that has performed really well this year. $IHI - iShares US Medical Devices - Up 20.15% YTD.

    Square is a really solid buy, good for you. My best one of the year is Pelaton. Bought it at the start of the pandi when all the yuppies I knew were buying these stupid $3000 spin bikes + monthly subscriptions. Up 295% since I bought. Scares me though being such an expensive and trendy product. I may sell my initial investment and just leave house money in.

    The other good one that I really like right now is $PENN - Penn National Gaming. They're in online gambling as well as bricks & mortar casinos. They also bought a huge share of Barstool Sports which was what prompted me to buy in. It was as low as $6 during the height of lockdowns with casinos and sports stopped, but now it's at about $74 USD.

    Most of those died many, many moons ago, so I think trying to write them off would be a waste. And it's not like I lost a lot of money on them, the ones where I have 1,000 or more shares of were more than like valued at less than a penny at the time, especially the ones that I have 25,000 and 40,000 shares of. I just wish I knew how I could just remove the ones that aren't trading any longer from my portfolio.
