You should know that no matter how well a company is currently doing right now, there are always risks that come with investing.
It is advisable to invest in stable companies that have a good track record and shows continuous growth.
Also, avoid investing in one company because if anything goes wrong with that one company you might lose all your money with no returns so, rather spread your money amongst various companies so you always have something to fall back on if one fails.
