The year 2022, so far, has been a challenging one for the stock markets across the world as investors are struggling with the uncertainties created by the pandemic, inflation, supply chain problems, and the latest Russia and Ukraine war. The ongoing geopolitical tension has disrupted value chains, pushed oil and gas, food, and other commodity prices to their record highs, and impacted global and domestic economic recovery.

Stock market investors are still looking for opportunities to maximise their gains even in times of uncertainty

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has warned that inflation, rising energy bills, war, rising interest rates, and increased taxes together may reverse the economic growth and may push the economy into recession.

Stock market investors are still looking for opportunities to maximise their gains even in times when many publicly listed stocks are losing value and market volatility is increasing.

So, it may look like the right time to invest in growth stocks that traditionally grow at a rate above-average revenue and earnings growth potential of the market. Usually, investors choose growth stocks for capital appreciation as these stocks are known for not paying dividends. These stocks may often look expensive and are available at a high price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio. But if these companies grow at a faster rate, the share price of these stocks can look cheaper.

Due to some limitations in the P/E ratio calculation, investors may also consider the Price-Earnings to Growth ratio (PEG), as it takes a yearly rise in the total earning per share into account. However, investors should carefully analyse the fundamentals of the company before investing in any growth stock.

Let us look at some growth stocks, such as Indivior Plc, Investec Plc, Air Partner Plc, Airtel Africa Plc, and Drax Group Plc, that you may consider for some earnings.
