6 Stocks That Will Hit $1 Trillion

In all the ruckus over bitcoin, everyone has forgotten about boring ol' stocks. Who cares about returns of 111% when you can make that in a day trading cryptocurrencies, they say. Sounds good on paper, sure. Those people, however, haven't heard of risk-adjusted returns.

I'm not here to pick on bitcoin speculators, who will probably be justified in the long run, but instead to point you back in the direction of investments that are just that—investments. If stocks continue to tack on record gains, as they did in 2017, then 2018 could be the year we see the first publicly traded trillion-dollar company.

In the race to one trillion, some stocks are more obvious than others. Tech stocks, in particular, are crowd favorites to join the four-commas club. And while it is that sector that will likely produce the first winner, each stock in this article has a chance to hit a trillion dollar valuation soon.

Buy all of them, buy a few or just buy the one you trust the most. No matter what you decide, you'll eventually have a trillion-dollar stock in your portfolio with these six.
