The stock market has grown incredibly growth-heavy in the past few years as technology stocks register an unprecedented rally that has smashed analyst expectations time and again, gathering pace with each passing day. More than 20% of the benchmark S&P 500 Index is made up of just five big tech companies. The rise of fintech, electric vehicles, and cryptocurrencies also seems inevitable. According to Daniel Ives, a research analyst at Wedbush Securities, Bitcoin will be a mainstream asset class in the future ahead of gold.
Growth investors are already pampered for choice. Big names like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) are valued at over $1 trillion, with future outlooks bright, while other major growth stocks like NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), among others discussed in detail below, are fast approaching big tech status as well. Growth focused hedge funds are minting billions and a new generation of self-made millionaires is rising at the market.
The influx of retail investors, who prefer investing in high-growth options, particularly since many retail investors are around thirty-years-old and willing to take more risks compared to the older generation, has added a new dynamic to the overall market environment. Coupled with the power of social media platforms like Twitter and Reddit, and stock trading applications like Robinhood, these retail investors are on track to pour over $1 trillion into equities this year, according to investment bank JPMorgan.
The companies that have the potential to grow fast in the coming months, based on the popularity and viability of the products or services they offer amid the macro economic environment, were selected for the list. In order to provide readers with some context for their investment choices, the business fundamentals and analyst ratings for the stocks were also considered.

“The Trade Desk (TTD – up 26.3%) – Shares in the programmatic advertising specialist rebounded during the quarter after selling off in Q1. The selloff was part of the previously mentioned market move away from higher priced technology names. The rebound in Q2 was due to Google delaying its phase out of third-party cookies in its Chrome browser to mid to late 2023. This is positive news, but TTD is prepared for the inevitable transition away from cookies. The company has built an industry alternative called UID 2.0 which asks users’ permission to receive targeted ads on websites.
UID 2.0 has gained more traction in the digital ad industry vs competing alternatives with many major publishers and advertisers on board. Additionally, TTD’s business is diversified across numerous channels including video, audio, in-app, native and social. Connected TV is currently their fastest growing business, and cookies are meaningless on that platform as ads are based on first-party data.”
