Berko: Crazy Mary picks cheap, risky stocks

July 21, 2018, 6:02 AM

Dear Mr. Berko: I began trading cheap stocks — below $5 a share — in 2001. I’ve had some good years and some bad years. Over the 17 years, I’m down about $19,000. I initially invested $100,000, and I’ve got $81,000 remaining. I’ve subscribed to 30 or 40 low-price stock services, and it’s been lots of fun. Most of these stock services brag about how well they do, but I’ve learned it’s mostly baldfaced lies to attract suckers like me. I’ve never seen you recommend cheap stocks. I’ll bet you have some good names on a list somewhere. So how about giving me a dozen or so recommendations?
