As a strong believer in the efficient market hypothesis, I'd advise you to stick to a general three fund portfolio (US total market, RoW market, and a safe Bonds fund). 100k is nothing to gamble with and picking individual stocks is, at least in my view, simply that.

You should really only trade individual securities if you know what you're doing *and* are willing to devote a significant amount of time to research and monitoring. Given the hours we work, you're definitely better off in an index fund

Trading individual securities is gambling. Buying and holding index funds is investing. (I know we're all on the same page here just putting it in different terms.)

DIVX team. Check it out. Very excited about the project focus, and if they accomplish even half of their roadmap this year, a massive gain should be waiting in the wings. $50M market cap - no one is paying attention because the coin is ~$10.
