Here’s the Best Stock I Bought in 2020

Media-streaming technology specialist Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) had been on my radar since it produced the first set-top box that could stream Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) content in 2008. The company entered the public stock market nearly 10 years after that. It still looked like a great idea in 2017.
