I've seen a lot of these "top 3 stocks" posts so sure, I'll play. I'm upping the ante though by doing 3 stocks and one ETF. Bam! That's how I bring it! Lol ETF $LIT WHY? I compare investing in this to investing in oil before the rise of the internal combustion engine. Can you imagine holding on to a stock like that with the next century that emerged? By 2035 basically every car on earth will be powered by a lithium battery. In fact only one company I'm aware of is developing a technology that does not involve lithium. Samsung is using a material called silver carbon in their solid state battery. Everyone else is on board the lithium train. For several of these companies this ETF and $BATT are the only ways to invest in them. That's why this fund gets a 10% weighting all on its own in my long-term portfolio. Stocks $ACHV WHY? Yeah yeah you've heard it all before right. Here he goes again on an achieve rant! Frankly anyone who isn't still bullish on this probably didn't know what they were getting in to. This is not a quick flip. This is a company with a single product. That product is pretty great though. Cytisinicline is a plant-based product for smoking cessation that has been used in Europe for over a decade. Currently Achieve is in phase 3 trials for the commercialization of cytisinicline in North America. This product would be entering the market at a time where the market leader has been pulled from the shelves. Chantix, sold by Pfizer, has generated almost 2 billion dollars per year in revenue. Cytisinicline in a head-to-head trial was found to be 50% more effective with 50% less adverse events. The total Market is estimated to be around 7 billion dollars. People like myself refuse to take Chantix because of the side effects. The top line readout for the phase 3 trial is scheduled for spring of next year. Until then the stock will continue to float around with no news. The reason I continue to hold is that a buyout could come at any moment. It is expected that Pfizer would not take kindly to losing 2 billion dollars a year in revenue so will likely try to buy out Achieve. So until that or something else happens I continue to buy. $APPS WHY? From their most recent earnings report Non-GAAP gross profit was up 172% to $72.4M or +87% pro forma (the acquisitions have some negative effect on gross margin but gross margin is expanding in the core business). Revenue growth was over 100% while non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA growth was up 183% and earnings per share growth was over 150%. Overall they grew 250% YOY and are actually projected to accelerate that growth to 350% in 2022. They have been using their money wisely. They recently acquired 3 high growth companies that add a new dimension to their business. Adcolony, SingleTap, and Fyber were all posting over 200% revenue growth on their own but now that they're paired with Digital Turbines reach they are poised to explode. Also recently announced, Digital Turbine is to be the preferred distributor for TikTok on mobile device preload inventory in North America, expanding its current Latin America partnership. Under this new mutual agreement, TikTok will manage their mobile preloads through Digital Turbine's platform, with TikTok becoming the preferred short-form video platform preloaded on Digital Turbine inventory. Digital Turbine is the largest global on-device media platform with key partnerships in the US including Verizon, AT&T, Tracfone and Cricket and in Latin America with partners such as Telefónica, América Móvil, and Millicom. This is a high growth company with tons of room to expand in an industry that's going nowhere but up. I choose to buy into the decline because that's what you do when you know exactly what it is you're buying. $ORGN Why? Members of the discord (link below) can testify to the fact I've been beating the drum on this one since day one. Origin is the world’s leading carbon negative materials company with a mission to enable the world’s transition to sustainable materials. From the earnings call last week "On the operational side, we have made steady progress against project milestones for Origin 1 and 2 and are pleased to reaffirm our capital budget and our expectation that we will be able to fully fund the construction of both plants using funds from our own balance sheet and previously indicated traditional project financing sources on our stated timelines. We do not anticipate any additional equity capital will be required to finance our current business plan. We continue to expect the construction of Origin 1 will be completed by the end of 2022 and Origin 2 will be completed by the middle of 2025." They have a patented carbon negative production technology, partnerships with huge multinational corporations such as Nestle and PepsiCo, and more than enough money on the balance sheet to achieve all of their short to mid term goals. What's not to like? So there you have it. My 3 and 1 high conviction long term plays.

All investments involve the risk of loss and the past performance of a security or a financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. You should consult your legal, tax, or financial advisors before making any financial decisions. This material is not intended as a recommendation, offer, or solicitation to purchase or sell securities, open a brokerage account, or engage in any investment strategy.

Product offerings and availability vary based on jurisdiction.

Stocks, ETFs, Options, Bonds.
Self-directed brokerage accounts and brokerage services for US-listed, registered securities, options, and Bonds, except for treasury securities offered through Jiko Securities, Inc., are offered to self-directed customers by Open to the Public Investing, Inc. (“Public Investing”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. Additional information about your broker can be found by clicking here. Public Investing is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Public Holdings, Inc. (“Public Holdings”). This is not an offer, solicitation of an offer, or advice to buy or sell securities or open a brokerage account in any jurisdiction where Public Investing is not registered. Securities products offered by Public Investing are not FDIC insured. Apex Clearing Corporation, our clearing firm, has additional insurance coverage in excess of the regular SIPC limits. Additional information can be found here.

Certain requirements must be met in order to trade options. Options can be risky and are not suitable for all investors. Options transactions are often complex, and investors can rapidly lose the entire amount of their investment or more in a short period of time. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing in options. Refer to the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before considering any options transaction. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request. Tax considerations with options transactions are unique and investors considering options should consult their tax advisor as to how taxes affect the outcome of each options strategy.

Options Order Flow Rebate.
If you are enrolled in our Options Order Flow Rebate Program, Public Investing will share 50% of our estimated order flow revenue for each completed options trade as a rebate to help reduce your trading costs. The exact rebate will depend on the specifics of each transaction and will be previewed for you prior to submitting each trade. This rebate will be deducted from your cost to place the trade and will be reflected on your trade confirmation. Order flow rebates are not available for non-options transactions. To learn more, see our Fee Schedule, Order Flow Rebate FAQ, and Order Flow Rebate Program Terms & Conditions.

“Bonds” shall refer to corporate debt securities and U.S. government securities offered on the Public platform through a self-directed brokerage account held at Public Investing and custodied at Apex Clearing. For purposes of this section, Bonds exclude treasury securities held in treasury accounts with Jiko Securities, Inc. as explained under the “ Treasury Accounts” section.

Investments in Bonds are subject to various risks including risks related to interest rates, credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors. The value of Bonds fluctuate and any investments sold prior to maturity may result in gain or loss of principal. In general, when interest rates go up, Bond prices typically drop, and vice versa. Bonds with higher yields or offered by issuers with lower credit ratings generally carry a higher degree of risk. All fixed income securities are subject to price change and availability, and yield is subject to change. Bond ratings, if provided, are third party opinions on the overall bond's credit worthiness at the time the rating is assigned. Ratings are not recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell securities, and they do not address the market value of securities or their suitability for investment purposes.

High-Yield Cash Account.
A High-Yield Cash Account is a secondary brokerage account with Public Investing. Funds in your High-Yield Cash Account are automatically deposited into partner banks (“Partner Banks”), where that cash earns interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. See here for a list of current Partner Banks. Your Annual Percentage Yield is variable and may change at the discretion of the Partner Banks or Public Investing. Apex Clearing and Public Investing receive administrative fees for operating this program, which reduce the amount of interest paid on swept cash. Neither Public Investing nor any of its affiliates is a bank. Learn more.

Alternative Assets.
Brokerage services for alternative assets available on Public are offered by Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”), member of FINRA & SIPC. “Alternative assets,” as the term is used at Public, are equity securities that have been issued pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) (“Regulation A”). This content is not investment advice. These investments are speculative, involve substantial risks (including illiquidity and loss of principal), and are not FDIC or SIPC insured. Alternative Assets purchased on the Public platform are not held in a Public Investing brokerage account and are self-custodied by the purchaser. The issuers of these securities may be an affiliate of Public Investing, and Public Investing (or an affiliate) may earn fees when you purchase or sell Alternative Assets. For more information on risks and conflicts of interest, see these disclosures. An affiliate of Public may be “testing the waters” and considering making an offering of securities under Tier 2 of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until an offering statement filed with the SEC has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC or as stated in the offering materials relating to an investment opportunity, as applicable. An indication of interest to purchase securities involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Cryptocurrency trading, execution, and custody services are provided by Bakkt Crypto Solutions, LLC (NMLS ID 1828849) (“Bakkt”). Cryptocurrency is highly speculative, involves a high degree of risk, and has the potential for loss of the entire amount of an investment. Cryptocurrencies offered by Bakkt are not securities and are not FDIC insured or protected by SIPC. Your cryptocurrency assets are held in your Bakkt account. Bakkt is a licensed virtual currency business by the New York State Department of Financial Services and a licensed money transmitter, but is not a registered broker-dealer or a FINRA member. Your Bakkt Crypto account is separate from your brokerage account with Public Investing, which holds US-listed stocks and ETFs. Please review the Risk Disclosures before trading.

Treasury Accounts.
Investing services in treasury accounts offering 6 month US Treasury Bills on the Public platform are through Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information.

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. Although T-bills are considered safer than many other financial instruments, you could lose all or a part of your investment. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.

Banking services and bank accounts are offered by Jiko Bank, a division of Mid-Central National Bank.

JSI and Jiko Bank are not affiliated with Public Holdings, Inc. (“Public”) or any of its subsidiaries. None of these entities provide legal, tax, or accounting advice. You should consult your legal, tax, or financial advisors before making any financial decisions. This material is not intended as a recommendation, offer, or solicitation to purchase or sell securities, open a brokerage account, or engage in any investment strategy.

Keep in mind that other fees such as regulatory fees, Premium subscription fees, commissions on trades during extended trading hours, wire transfer fees, and paper statement fees may apply to your brokerage account.
