Each year, I reach out to bloggers and investors I regularly interact with and ask for their top investment pick for the year. This is meant to be a fun exercise and readers should perform their own due diligence before investing in any of the securities mentioned. Remember that these are picks based on outlook at the time of writing and things change all the time. But it is interesting to track the progress nonetheless. I have included the previous year as well as it is always a good idea to look back and find some good investment ideas.
