Brandie Wetzel

High growth companies such as Firan Technology Group and Aurinia Pharmaceuticals has a positive future outlook in terms of their returns, profitability and cash flows. The prospects of these companies tend to outperform others, regardless of how the stock market is generally doing. The list I’ve put together below are of stocks that compare favourably on all criteria, which potentially makes them a good investment if you believe the growth has not already been reflected in the share price.

Ballard Power Systems Inc. (TSX:BLDP)

Ballard Power Systems Inc. engages in the design, development, manufacture, sale, and service of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells worldwide. Started in 1979, and now led by CEO R. MacEwen, the company size now stands at 395 people and has a market cap of CAD CA$694.44M, putting it in the small-cap group.

BLDP’s forecasted bottom line growth is an exceptional 62.28%, driven by the underlying double-digit sales growth of 33.07% over the next few years. Though some cost-cutting activities may artificially inflate margins, it appears that this isn’t solely the case here, as profit growth is also coupled with top-line expansion. BLDP’s bullish prospects on both the top and bottom lines make it an interesting stock to invest more time to understand how it can add value to your portfolio. Thinking of investing in BLDP?
