I don't mean this sarcastically, but, I thought I *had* found a strategy.

Maybe if you explain what you mean, I'll better understand what it is I need to work on?

My strategy (such as it is): look for companies I "know" in one sense or another. Make sure they're a fee-less Drip/DSP. Look for companies whose earnings projections are in the 15%+ range for the next five years. Make sure all 5 companies are in different sectors, are different 'size' companies, and have different consumer bases.

Maybe this is *not* a "strategy" and it's just what everyone does as the first step to weed out the completely 'boneheaded' investment choices.
