Tapping into the right trend and playing it correctly can bring outrageous returns. Microsoft and the rise of "Big Tech" comes to mind, or L3Harris Technologies and the spread of combat drones.
Investors who spotted those trends and - even better - traded the shares correctly have doubled their stake dozens of times at least.
Now, if you've been keeping up with the news... you probably haven't heard of this trend. But if you follow pop culture or social media or the last three minutes of "Entertainment Tonight," then you're definitely aware that fried chicken is sweeping the nation...
... and a food fight is raging that makes "less filling, tastes great" look like child's play.
Today I've got a (kind of) "defense" play lined up for us - defense in the 2019 Fried Chicken Sandwich War.
I know - it's completely absurd. It sounds ridiculous. I admit it.
