Investing in strong stocks to make better money

I ended up buying a luxury EV stock and it tanked bigtime sureterday because of an immense boardroom confrontation in the dealer. One of the main stockholders is trying to kick the president of the business out and it is creating a lot of ripples in the price of the entire stock. The stock was at $8 a couple afternoons ago and now it is laying at $3.50 and my money just got split in half. I’m going to ride it out because if I sell now it will legitimately jump up in a matter of several afternoons. My heating and A/C business has stock too but I don’t invest in it because I don’t want to let go of this dark horse. This EV business has a current motorcar coming out this quarter and I am betting that the stock will pump as soon as it puts out its first vehicle. I recognize I care about betting on the dark horses because the payoff is better. I’m extremely happy to have my job as an actual heating and A/C tech because I don’t have to touch my investments. I care about tasks at the business as the pay is good and the people I task with are certainly cool people. Both of us occasionally hang out after work at the local supplier next door and just talk and laugh. One of the heating and A/C reps plays guitar and occasionally all of us jam at my buddy’s flat or on the beach. I play drums and sing and I love it so much. My other friend is a local corporation and he gets us gigs occasionally at local pubs or bars.
