The simplest way to invest in stocks is to buy exchange traded funds. But if you pick the right individual stocks, you could make more than that. To wit, the UNITEKNO Co.,Ltd (KOSDAQ:241690) share price is 54% higher than it was a year ago, much better than the market return of around 44% (not including dividends) in the same period. That's a solid performance by our standards! In contrast, the longer term returns are negative, since the share price is 1.4% lower than it was three years ago.
