10 Of The Best Performing Growth Stocks From The Past Decade | A Review

Apple - AAPL
Best Growth Stock Pick
Best performing stocks from the last decade originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". We all love it to see how our investments grow. Not enough, we spent much more time for searching those stocks that tenfold over the next ten years.

Have you ever had some stocks that doubled in a year, quadrupled in five years and even tenfold in ten years? I do. But I sold the stocks before they started to run. No good choice from me.

Only growth can make you rich. If you buy a stock at a low market capitalization and the company grows over the next twenty years with rates around the double-digit rage, your wealth will follow.

So, let’s spent some time and learn from the best growth stocks of the recent decade. Many of the other top stocks were indeed small and obscure, however. Eight of the companies were valued below $100 million a decade ago. And four of the companies still have market caps below $1 billion, even with the remarkable returns they were able to generate over the past decade.

Only two stocks of the best growth stocks from the past decade pay dividends as of now. But they have much more to offer: Growth and cash!

Here are my favorite stocks:

    Chasing high dividend yield stocks or picking in only one sector won't cut it if you want to build a strong dividend growth portfolio. There is only one way to build such a portfolio and it's to pick among the best dividend growth stocks. I'm not the kind of investor who's looking for a fast lane to pick-up "hot stocks" but I found a way to "secure" your dividend stock picking process. Long AAPL.
