These stocks are going to keep rising even if the market falls

Square (SQ)

I’ve been a big fan of Square over the past months and even own it in my own account. Part of the current excitement about Square is that it can now be used as a wallet for cryptocurrency and can easily be used to facilitate Bitcoin transactions. That begins to make Square’s product go from a product for business owners to a product for all consumers. The consumer market is obviously many times larger, so it’s not surprising to see SQ shares rise, nor is unexpected to see shares trade at a very high multiple (forward P/E: 70.)
