The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don’t use leverage) is 100% of your money. But if you buy shares in a really great company, you can more than double your money. For example, the Sport Lisboa e Benfica – Futebol, SAD (ELI:SLBEN) share price has soared 198% in the last three years. That sort of return is as solid as granite. We note the stock price is up 2.2% in the last seven days.
