April Growth Opportunities – Espial Group And More

Michael Canly

Looking to enhance your portfolio with high-growth, financially-robust stocks, but not sure where you should even begin? Stocks such as Espial Group and Aurinia Pharmaceuticals are deemed to be superior in terms of how much they’re expected to earn and return to shareholders, according to analysts. Below I’ve put together a list of great potential investments for you to consider adding to your portfolio if growth is a dimension you would like to firm up.

Espial Group Inc. (TSX:ESP)

Espial Group Inc. develops and markets computer software solutions in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. Formed in 1997, and currently lead by Jaison Dolvane, the company employs 174 people and with the company’s market capitalisation at CAD CA$68.27M, we can put it in the small-cap category.

ESP is expected to deliver an extremely high earnings growth over the next couple of years of 85.21%, driven by a positive revenue growth of 6.59% and cost-cutting initiatives. Although reduction in cost is not the most sustainable operational activity, the expanding top-line growth, on the other hand, is encouraging. This prospective profitability should trickle down to shareholders, with analysts expecting the company to generate a positive return on equity of 9.00%. ESP ticks the boxes for robust growth generation on all levels of line items, which makes it an appealing stock to dig into deeper. Could this stock be your next pick?
