No Fooling: 10 Stocks That Went Up 500% in 10 Years

Comment

Everyone's goal as an investor is to find big winners in the stock market. If you can find a promising stock before its share price starts taking off, then you can capture most of its gains for yourself. That can produce wealth that will truly change your life.

To find those stocks, you can't simply turn to the past to see which stocks have already produced those returns. After all, stocks can only climb so far, and companies that have already gone through massive growth spurts won't necessarily be able to keep up the pace and duplicate their past efforts. Nevertheless, by seeing which companies were most successful in past years, you can identify attributes that winning stocks share, and that can make it easier for you to find tomorrow's winning stocks before the rest of the investing crowd discovers them. When you look at a list of some of the best-performing stocks of the past decade, you'll find some clues you can use in your search for new winners.

Below, you'll find 10 stocks that have managed to produce returns of more than 500% since mid-2006. I selected this list from some of the best-performing picks of The Motley Fool's Stock Advisor and Rule Breakers newsletters, and although some of those picks were made within the past decade, all of them were still recommended stocks as of the writing of this article.
