The Best Growth Investments – Low Dividends, High Growth And Return
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Growth stocks are very good investment vehicles to boost your wealth if you have paid an acceptable price for the business in the past. If so, your return on investment should be high enough to compensate for all underlying risks. I screened the best 100 growth stocks from with the highest rate of 3-year total return. Below the ten best stocks are only two that pay dividends; eight are currently recommended to buy and four of the 100 best growth stocks have a triple-digit return. Remarkable is the low debt and high growth from the stocks. Sometimes it makes sense to accept a low dividends or to renounce dividends in exchange for growth and return.

Here are my favorite stocks:

Lululemon Athletica (LULU) has a market capitalization of $9.94 billion. The company employs 5,807 people, generates revenue of $1,000.84 million and has a net income of $184.96 million. The firm's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $316.98 million.
