Everyone has a different answer on this as everyone has different goals. It's best to be diversified in the number of stocks you own and set your goals. Once you're in a comfortable position to might want set a certain percentage aside for speculation. Right now the marijuana industry (Canadian only) shows promise as recreational use of marijuana became legal there last year and there are numerous companies getting established. A few that I've bought and think have good prospects are (MLCPF), Medipharm Labs Corp,, (SPRWF), Supreme Cannabis Co., Inc., and (VGWCF), Valens Groworks Corp. I also own (ACB), Aurora Cannabis, Inc., although I'd probably dump it at around $10.00 as it's got too many shares outstanding. BUT whatever you buy spend some time in doing research on your own. Good luck and remember that it's all a gamble to some point.
