All of the stocks you've mentioned are tiny, micro cap companies I've never heard of. I'm not saying micro cap companies are bad, but they are pretty risky. Unfortunately, I can't really give you information on companies that I don't know anything about.

But I do encourage you to do one exercise: you should be able to give a two-minute quick version of the company's business. If someone asked you about stock XYZ, wouldn't you start by telling them what industry they're in, how they make money, and why you like them over one of their competitors? What was your original investment case for buying?

If you cannot do that, it might be a good idea to learn more about these companies. After all, stocks are ownership stakes in businesses. You haven't mentioned yet whether you own any of these businesses, but if you do own them already...wouldn't you want to know more about these businesses that you own?

For Income Investor recommendations, we do much of that legwork for you. Even then, we recommend getting to know companies at whatever level is comforting for you. After all, you're the one deciding whether to buy these companies.
