Growth Stocks Investors Love

Thomas Auclair

High growth companies such as Canopy Growth 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. Investment in growth companies can benefit your current holdings, whether it be in established tech giants or undiscovered micro-caps. Here, I’ve put together a few companies the market is particularly optimistic towards.

Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED)

Canopy Growth Corporation, through its subsidiaries, produces and sells medical marijuana in Canada. The company size now stands at 637 people and with the stock’s market cap sitting at CAD CA$3.51B, it comes under the mid-cap stocks category.

WEED’s forecasted bottom line growth is an exceptional 97.11%, driven by underlying sales, which is expected to more than double, over the next few 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. We see this bottom-line expansion directly benefiting shareholders, with expected positive return on equity of 1.00%. WEED’s impressive outlook on all aspects makes it a worthy company to spend more time to understand. A potential addition to your portfolio? Check out its fundamental factors here.

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals Inc. (TSX:AUP)

Aurinia Pharmaceuticals Inc., a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, engages in the development of a therapeutic drug to treat autoimmune diseases in Canada and internationally. Founded in 1993, and now run by Richard Glickman, the company size now stands at 20 people and with the stock’s market cap sitting at CAD CA$550.86M, it comes under the small-cap category.

AUP’s forecasted bottom line growth is an optimistic 35.82%, driven by the underlying double-digit cash flow from operations growth of 8.30% over the next few years. An affirming signal is when net income increase also comes with operating cash flow growth. Even though some cost-reduction initiatives may have also pushed up margins, in the case of AUP, it does not appear extreme. AUP’s bullish prospects make it an interesting stock to invest more time to understand how it can add value to your portfolio. A potential addition to your portfolio?
