Stocks to buy

In the rollercoaster ride that was 2022, the best hyper-growth momentum stocks took a monumental beating. The Federal Reserve’s aggressive interest rate hikes and macroeconomic factors had growth stocks to buy plummeting across the board.

As skittish investors fled from growth stocks, the once-lofty valuations of growth stocks are now more attractive than ever, presenting a tantalizing buffet of opportunities for long-term investors with a keen eye for potential.

So, what makes hyper-growth momentum leaders so alluring? These companies boast revenues and net income growth rates that leave the market average in the dust. Investors looking for exponential returns scoop them up, expecting share prices will skyrocket in line with their rapid growth.

Therefore, despite the perils of investing in growth stocks, they will always remain relevant for investors with a strong risk appetite. With that being said, let’s look at three of the best hyper-growth momentum picks to invest in now.

BYDDY BYD  $60.81
SQM Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile $70.25
INTU Intuit $426.38

The Chinese auto behemoth BYD (OTCMKTS:BYDDY) has been touted as a “Tesla killer” and for good reason. It earned its spot as one of Tesla’s top rivals and has effectively eclipsed the EV titan in China’s market share. It also impressed with its tremendous performance in crafting mid-market EVs, despite Tesla’s aggressive pricing strategy.

BYD ended last year clinching the title of the world’s top EV seller. However, its ambitions extend far beyond EV market dominance.

The EV giant has effectively ventured into the electric bus market, delivering over 70,000 units globally, dabbling with the fast-growing artificial intelligence arena.

BYD forged a relationship with AI titan Nvidia, to elevate the driving experience of its vehicles, potentially gaining a heads-up in driverless technology as companies double down on autonomous driving advancements.
