I guess, but not really. My typical standard is I look for stocks that can reasonably appreciate 5 - 10 times over 2 or 3 years, with a reasonable amount of safety. If the safety characteristics are exceptional, I will buy stocks with only potential of a double or triple. But if the appreciation potential is over 20 times, I'm less apt to consider safety (although I think through likely scenarios to limit risk).

Are there some specific names you could share? Past choices that panned out well, or stocks you're watching now?
