Investors seeking to increase their exposure to growth should consider companies such as Supernus Pharmaceuticals and Sandy Spring Bancorp. Analysts are generally optimistic about the future of these stocks, based on how much they’re expected to earn and return. Analysing the most recent financial data, I’ve created a list of companies that compare favourably in all criteria, making them potentially good additions to your portfolio.

Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUPN)

Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company, focuses on the development and commercialization of products for the treatment of central nervous system diseases in the United States. Formed in 2005, and now run by Jack Khattar, the company currently employs 363 people and with the company’s market capitalisation at USD $1.96B, we can put it in the small-cap group.

SUPN’s projected future profit growth is an exceptional 89.74%, with an underlying 66.89% growth from its revenues expected over the upcoming years. Profit growth, coupled with top-line expansion, is a positive indication. This is because net income isn’t artificially inflated by unsustainable activities such as one-off cost-reductions expected in the future. Moreover, the 10.62% growth in operating cash flows shows that a decent part of earnings is driven by robust cash generation from operational activities, not one-off or non-core activities. SUPN ticks the boxes for high-growth generation on all levels of line items, which makes it an appealing stock to dig into deeper. A potential addition to your portfolio?
