    Based on past historical performance, which are the major stocks which increased severalfold and returning massive profits for their owners?

    Have you personally bought in on any?

    Why do you believe they performed so well?

    How does one detect similar 'high-risers' in the future?

    Create your own company, list it on the stock market, shill on the internet, then sell some of your shares once they hit a comfortably high price.

    You can just look at the price of a blue-chip 5, 10, 20 years ago and compare it to now, there's bound to be some people that held onto their shares and made a profit.

    Hard to detect these things, otherwise everybody would be millionaires.

    Depends on your original investment amount.

    Apple and Berkshire Hathaway come to mind as candidates.

    To go from a few thousand pounds to becoming a millionaire you would need to trade really volatile penny stocks; this is extremely high risk.

    To give some perspective, for conservative long term investments, you would be really happy to make 10% annually.
