What is a ‘Tenbagger‘ (Source: Investopedia)
An investment that appreciates to 10 times its initial purchase price. The term “tenbagger” was coined by legendary fund manager Peter Lynch in his book “One Up On Wall Street”. While “tenbagger” can describe any investment that appreciates or has the potential to increase ten-fold, it is usually used to describe stocks with explosive growth prospects. Lynch coined the term because he is an avid baseball fan, and “bag” is a colloquial term for base; thus “tenbagger” represents two home runs and a double, or the stock equivalent of a hugely successful baseball play.
Strictly based on the stock chart (not company fundamentals, etc.) I think that $LEXG has 10-bagger potential. Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. See my blog post about this here.
I have successfully made a few multi-bagger trades and I will post the trade execution confirmations of those trades. So far, the dollar value of money made from these multi-baggers has not been anything to brag about, but I know one of these days it will be.
You know those penny stock clip-art pictures you see, where 1 penny turns into 2, then 2 into 4, 4 to 8, etc. etc. Well wouldn’t it be nice to make a 10x return on a $100 investment, turning one hundred dollars into one thousand dollars in a single investment. Or turning $1,000 into $10,000 sounds even better. Well, sometimes I hunt for the next 10-bagger. The best I’ve done so far is 38-bagger in $ABPI (which is now de-listed). And too bad I didn’t hang onto my $DLIAQ $0.0001 shares longer, last week this stock hit a high of $0.0080 which would have given me an opportunity to make a 79-bagger if I had sold them at $0.0080 instead of $0.0015 (14-bagger). I’ve actually been stalking and trading $DLIAQ for quite a while now.

Subject: Fwd: I made a 38 bagger today in $ABPI
Only partial fill today, but on those 12,000 shares that sold at $0.0039, that’s a 38 bagger.
I invested $1.20 for those 12,000 shares and sold them today for $46.80.
If only the commission wasn’t $9.95 per trade.
And this $GBC stock which trades on the Canadian National Stock Exchange (CNSX) was my first ever multi-bagger trade, mind you I only got filled 1 share at $0.005 as I was noticing that this particular stock would often trade odd-lots at the price of $0.005 meanwhile the actual market would be between $0.03 to $0.08 during this same time.
The reason I had noticed this detail about GBC trading at $0.005 in the odd-lot market was because I had been tracking this stock for a couple years. It was actually a very “interesting” stock because back when #bitcoin was hot. I wrote this article Tell the market your company is a bitcoin investment vehicle = 10,000% return. This company came out with a PR one day saying they were now involved with bitcoin and the stock shot up 10,000%! I wrote about that back in 2013 on my blog here.
Do you ever hunt for ten-baggers? If so, leave a comment below or send me a message on twitter, let’s hunt them together!
