FAQ

Growth investors aim to take advantage of stocks that have the potential to grow significantly. They are looking for stocks whose revenue or earnings are expected to increase above average as compared to the market. Growth investors must have a high-risk tolerance, long-term financial goals, and rely on several financial metrics to measure the performance of a stock.

  • Growth stocks are often new and emerging companies that aren’t established and tested in the market yet which increases the risk of this strategy.
  • When investing in a company, growth investors also expect sales and/or profit to increase in the future. This is can make the stocks seem more expensive compared to other slow-growing companies in the industry. If you are a growth investor, expect high price-to-sales and price-to-earnings ratios.
  • Go high or go home: If you are expecting dividends from growth investing, you are expecting a fish to climb a tree. It’s never going to happen. In today’s world, it’s like going high or going home. Growth stocks often experience stock price swings in greater magnitudes. The main risk is that the realized or expected growth doesn't continue into the future. Investors have paid a high price expecting one thing, and not getting it. In such cases, a growth stock's price can fall dramatically.

On the good side, the high risk will be rewarded with high returns when betting on the right companies at the right time.

Growth investors who are looking to find find the right company for their growth investment, often consider the following factors among others:

  • Historical growth of the company
  • Profit margins
  • Return on equity
  • Forward earnings growth, and
  • Stock performance

Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing. Growth stocks are considered to have the potential to grow faster than the market over time. Value stocks are defined as companies that trade below the price of what they are currently worth (ie they are undervalued).

Value stocks tend to be more stable and less volatile than growth stocks, thus the risk is higher for growth investors.
