Top 10 Performing Stocks To Buy For 2019

Motley Fool co-founder David Gardner regularly offers listeners to the Rule Breakers podcast sets of five stocks that he thinks will beat the market, usually over a specified period of years (because though we recommend buying stocks for the very long term, you can’t wait forever to see if you’re getting the result you want). And because investing honestly and successfully demands that you keep score, he checks back in annually to see how those picks are performing.

Thus far, he has had a remarkable streak: Every one of his 14 sets of stocks has beaten the market at every annual review. But no more. The group he picked last year at this time under the theme of “stocks riding the bull market” has stuck a fork in #RBIStreak. But painful though it may be, he reviews how iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT), Pegasystems (NASDAQ:PEGA), Impinj (NASDAQ:PI), Wayfair (NYSE:W), and Zillow (NASDAQ:ZG) (NASDAQ:Z) performed over the past year.

A full transcript follows the video.
