A Trio of Fast-Growing Revenue Stock Picks

Their 5-year revenue per share growth rates have outperformed the S&P 500

March 07, 2021 | About:

The S&P 500 stocks saw their aggregate trailing 12-month real revenue per share increase at a compound annual growth rate of nearly 2% over the past five years. The share price of the benchmark index for the U.S. stock market traded at $3,841.94 at close on Friday, up by more than 90% over the past five years through March 5.

Thus, investors may be interested in the following stocks as they have surpassed the S&P 500 in terms of higher five-year revenue per share growth rates.

Medtronic

The first company that makes the cut is Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT).

Based in Dublin, Ireland, Medtronic is a manufacturer and seller of medical devices and therapies.
