Investing in high-risk stocks can take you to the cleaners if you're not careful, but the right picks can provide massive returns.
For example, a recent success story is Marathon Patent Group Inc. (Nasdaq: MARA). The MARA stock price soared 319% during the short Thanksgiving week in 2017, going from $1.42 to $5.95 per share.
You see, this large price jump is what makes these high-risk stocks. You shouldn't have too many penny stocks in your portfolio, because the prices could skyrocket just as fast as they could plummet.
