The 10 Best Growth Investments – Low Dividends, High Growth And Return

The Best Growing Companies With Highest 3-Year Total Return Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. Growth stocks are very good investment vehicles to boost your wealth if you have paid an acceptable price for the business in the past. If so, your return on investment should high enough to compensate all underlying risks. I screened the best 100 growth stocks from with the highest rate of 3-year total return. Below the ten best stocks are only two that pay dividends; eight are currently recommended to buy and four of the 100 best growth stocks have a triple-digit return. Remarkable is the low debt and high growth from the stocks. Sometimes it makes really sense to accept a low dividends or to renounce dividends in exchange for growth and return.

Here are my favorite stocks:
