Top Growth Stocks To Buy Now

Autumn Haas

Analysts are bullish on these following companies: Howard Bancorp, SITO Mobile, Eco-Stim Energy Solutions. These companies are relatively strong financially, and have a great outlook in terms of profits and cash flow. 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.

Howard Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:HBMD)

Howard Bancorp, Inc. operates as the bank holding company for Howard Bank that provides commercial banking, mortgage banking, and consumer finance products and services to businesses, business owners, professionals, and other consumers. Formed in 2004, and now led by CEO Mary Scully, the company size now stands at 297 people and with the company’s market cap sitting at USD $217.40M, it falls under the small-cap stocks category.

HBMD’s forecasted bottom line growth is an exceptional triple-digit, driven by underlying sales, which is expected to more than double, over the next few years. It appears that HBMD’s profitability may be sustainable as the fundamental push is top-line expansion rather than unmaintainable cost-cutting activities. We see this bottom-line expansion directly benefiting shareholders, with expected positive return on equity of 9.47%. HBMD’s impressive outlook on all aspects makes it a worthy company to spend more time to understand. Want to know more about HBMD? I recommend researching its fundamentals here.

SITO Mobile, Ltd. operates a mobile location-based advertising platform in the United States and Canada. Established in 2000, and run by CEO Thomas Pallack, the company now has 70 employees and has a market cap of USD $142.52M, putting it in the small-cap category.

SITO’s projected future profit growth is an exceptional 66.47%, with an underlying 97.83% growth from its revenues expected over the upcoming years. An affirming signal is when net income increase is supported by top-line growth. Since net income isn’t artificially inflated by one-off initiatives such as cost-cutting, we know this profit growth is more likely to be sustainable. SITO’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 SITO?
