I'm trying to figure out how many 10 baggers I would need... If my top 3 stocks magically turned 10 times this year I would still fall short by a long shot. If my whole portfolio turned 10 times I would be in the clear though.

I have trouble predicting an exact date for FI let alone RE because I don't know what my returns will be for the next few years. If the next couple years go as well as this one then it will be about 5 years. Otherwise as much as 10 or maybe more.
