Best Growth Stock Picks

Casey Hall

High-growth stocks that are financially stable are attractive for many reasons. They provide a strong upside to your portfolio, with less likelihood of downside risks compared to less financially robust companies. Whether it be a well-known tech stock or a risky small-cap, I believe diversification towards growth can add value to your current holdings. Below I’ve compiled a list of stocks with a bright future ahead.

Insperity, Inc. (NYSE:NSP)

Insperity, Inc. provides human resources (HR) and business solutions to enhance business performance for small and medium-sized businesses in the United States. Founded in 1986, and now led by CEO Paul Sarvadi, the company employs 2,900 people and with the market cap of USD $2.79B, it falls under the mid-cap group.

Extreme optimism for NSP, as market analysts projected an outstanding earnings growth rate of 22.28% for the stock, supported by a double-digit sales growth of 24.71%. 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. We see this bottom-line expansion directly benefiting shareholders, with expected return on equity coming in at a notable 64.70%. NSP’s impressive outlook on all aspects makes it a worthy company to spend more time to understand. Should you add NSP to your portfolio? Have a browse through its key fundamentals here.
