Take Your Portfolio From The Sewers To Cybertron With IDW

Although returning to write on the Seeking Alpha platform presented a challenge, I was able to gather the motivation to share my thoughts on a micro-cap company. But the article was still rejected due to the limited liquidity of the stock. Rejection does not equate to failure; rather, it provides a chance to refine and create better content. Even though Seeking Alpha didn't publish my article, I've decided to share it here instead. Thank you for taking the time to read my work.

Despite this, I took the time to review my remaining investments, which accounted for only 40% of my initial investments.  As a result, I developed a new roadmap for selecting companies, whi
