Looking for growth stocks? Here are two options

Summary

  • Growth stocks are typically non-dividend payers.
  • Growth stocks usually trade at a higher P/E ratio; expect to earn more revenue in the future.
  • Investors could incur losses if the company does not perform well, more so because these stocks generally do not pay dividends to shareholders.

Growth stocks are companies that are likely to grow at a faster pace than the market average. They are different from value stocks in that they typically reinvest the earnings to grow their business. Thus, both large- and small-cap stocks that have high growth potential can be growth stocks.

Growth stocks can also be risky. Investors could incur losses if the company does not perform well, more so because these stocks generally do not pay dividends to shareholders. Here we explore two growth stocks in the market and will try to know about their performance over the past few months.

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) was founded in 2011. Zoom provides a communication platform for people to connect and conduct meetings through video and voice calls, chats, and content sharing options. Its IPO came in April 2019.
