Reddit investors are back for another feast. The feast disappeared more quickly than it appeared — like a mirage or a flash mob. In fact, it seems to be over already. From May 17 to the 31, 2021, AMC stock was driven from a stock price of US$12 to US$62 for a five-bagger! In the same period, BlackBerry stock was driven from $10.30 to $18.25 per share for a 77% price gain.

As of writing, AMC and BB stocks have declined +28% and +9% on the day.

The problem is, you’ve got to be on the right side of the tide and perform perfect market timing. And all the while, you’re wide awake knowing that they’re speculative trades, gambling. When you buy, you’re counting on the next guy paying a higher price.

Analysts estimate AMC and BB stocks’ intrinsic values to be US$5.11 and US$8.90, respectively. It means the stocks could be 780% and 61% overvalued. Value investors would stay away from these speculative stocks, which have no margin of safety in sight!

If you want to gamble your money, you might as well put the odds in your favour. Here are five Canadian stocks that have delivered annualized returns of about 30% in the past 10 years. A 30% return per year implies turning an initial $10,000 investment to $137,858 for a 13-bagger!
