A growth stock is the stock of a company that demonstrates high potential and expects to grow earnings more rapidly than the industry average. These stocks typically trade at a high P/E ratio and typically do not provide dividends as these companies reinvest their earnings into the business.

However, investing in growth stocks can prove to be risky as investors might have to bear a loss if the company does not do well at the time of stock sell.

Let’s glance through the performance of these 5 NZX growth stocks.
