What Is A Growth Stock? 2021 Best Growth Stocks to Buy Now!

    What is a growth stock?

    A growth stock is a company’s shares expected to grow at a faster rate compared to the average market growth. Growth stocks do not pay dividends since companies use them to reinvest into the company’s growth. Particularly for the short term. Investors anticipate reaping profits through capital gains once they sell their shares in the future.

    While they may appear expensive, the growth of the company will eventually overshadow initial investment as the share price rises. Investing in growth stocks is risky since they do not pay dividends. You have to sell your shares to realize your return on investment. Unfortunately, if the company does not growth as expected, you can suffer huge losses.

    Growth stocks are synonymous with disruptive companies. For example, a company with a new technology that keeps it abreast of its competitors may reinvest profits to improve on the technology. While it is synonymous with startups, established companies also invest in growth stocks.

    Why growth stocks?

    Here are top reasons you should invest in growth stocks.

    ·       High returns

    Unlike most stocks that pay dividends, returns from growth stocks are in form of capital gains. This is an accumulation of wealth over a certain period. Growth stock companies have a higher growth rate compared to the niche industry. This ensures rapid and large revenue collection compared to a company’s peers. You realize your profits once you sell your shares, which are subject to long-term capital gains tax (LTCG).

    ·       Inflation-proof

    Since growth stocks grow at a faster rate compared to the market, they can withstand inflation in the economy. This enables investors to get higher returns compared to what they get from other investment options.
