More to the Story

Three separate strategies have been presented in this chapter for investing in younger, higher growth companies. The first and perhaps least risky strategy is to invest in small, publicly traded companies that are not widely followed by analysts. The second and potentially riskier strategy is to invest in stocks at the time or just after an initial public offering. The third and riskiest strategy is to invest in young private companies before they go public. Each of these strategies may show promise, but each also comes with potential problems.
