‘Run your winners’ is popular stock-market advice.
Great companies often remain great investments for a lot longer than most people expect…
… and can deliver life-changing rewards to anyone who refrains from selling out too soon.
Where can we find potential winners to run? I thought the best performing shares of 2019 would provide a good starting point.
One business that did well during 2019 was Greggs, the well-known bakery chain, which saw its shares rocket more than 80%.
Greggs is actually a textbook example of ‘running your winners’. The shares had already surged 100-fold before last year’s price jump.
