  • Growth stocks have a history of strong revenue growth and projected strong revenue growth and strong earnings.
  • Growth stocks  have the potential to outperform the overall market over time because of their future potential.

  • Investors pay more based on expectations, but but these stocks dip and dive if those expectations aren’t realized. You lose.
  • Growth stocks typically don’t pay dividends.
  • Growth stocks have the potential to perform better when interest rates are falling and company earnings are rising.
  • Growth stocks tend to excel during bull markets or periods of economic expansion.
