Enphase Energy, Inc (ENPH) - ENPH was $10+ in 15Q1 then dropped to $2 and eventually went under $1. From 15Q4 to 17Q4 it built a 2-year-long base then BOOM! Stock went as high as $70 and likely will make a new high. Catch one or two moves like this you can retire early. One hint before the big move was that CEO and CFO were constantly accumulating, this kind of information is priceless.
