The best growth stocks to buy

Small companies in diverse industries are the best growth stocks to buy 

Small companies are the best growth stocks to buy as investors have a diverse range of industries to choose from such as technology, gold, and minning. This is because by nature ASX Small Caps are less established businesses and are often in disruptive industries including technology experts or niche fields. ASX Small Caps are growth stocks because disruptive businesses once established really grow. Take a look at our best ASX Small Caps that have demonstrated to be the best growth stocks for our subscriber. 

Blue Chip shares in comparison are much more mature in their business cycle and are therefore by nature a less risky investment. However, the ASX 200 (the top 200 ASX listed shares) are dominated by the big banks and resources companies but it is very limited to a number of sectors (ie banking and resources and a few big name industrials), but essentially it does not give investors the opportunity to invest in a variety of industries to achieve substanial growth. 

Are growth stocks riskier?

Small Caps are are smaller, and less known, so it  is important that you look to manage your risk. These ASX Small Caps are mostly under researched by the share market participants.

Analysis of ASX Small Caps relies on the same principles as Blue Chip shares

Our small cap share analysts use the same investment principles as if they were researching and recommending blue chip shares. They look at the quality of earnings, the quality of management (especially important here) – we like it when management has a stake or has shares in the small cap – when you win, they win too. We look at sales diversification, the key drivers of the business – why would they grow? What is their competitive advantage? Can it increase its prices without losing customers? Plus of course the financials and the audited results. Our team speak to management regularly to keep up to date with the small cap and it’s progress.

Should ASX Small Caps pay a dividend?

At some stages in a small caps’ life cycle it is actually important to be reinvesting any profit back into the company to power growth. Because the primary reason you are investing in small caps is because you believe in the company and its niche and see real growth opportunities for your investment dollar. If it is not performing as it should, perhaps it’s time to sell and to put your money into a different small cap that is performing and can deliver you growth which the share market rewards with an increase in the small caps share price.
