It's important to know how to classify your stocks and over the years, I have used multiple classifications. Here's the one I'm currently using.
1. 𝘼𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙩 𝙋𝙡𝙖𝙮𝙨 🏦:
- Genworth Financial: Trading below book value with potential for cash generation.
- Zynerba Pharmaceutical: A small position with a strong balance sheet. (Update: I took profits on $ZYNE today)
- Spectrum Brands $SPB: Leveraging assets for share buybacks and debt reduction.
2. 𝙏𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙖𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙨 🔄:
- UNFI: Despite recent losses, there's potential for growth.
- WarnerBros. Discovery $WBD : A media giant with a promising future.
- GEO Grou: A private prison company adapting to new regulations.
3. 𝘾𝙮𝙘𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙎𝙩𝙤𝙘𝙠𝙨 🔄:

Why classify? It helps me avoid correlation between stocks and know where to get cash during market crashes. It's a dynamic approach that balances risk, volatility, and growth potential.
