Since the Stock market crash in March, there have been incredible stock rallies that have dragged the entire market back up and even hitting record figures.
Growth stocks like Apple, Amazon, and Tesla impressed greatly, and the future of the market seems to rest on the shoulders of stocks as such.
The thing with growth stocks is that they have the tendencies of generating mind-blowing returns over a short period of time, even though most of them are not paying dividends. Albeit, there’s a high risk associated with them.
I’m still coming to terms with the fact that Tesla traded a little over $200 a year ago and now trades at $2,213 before the proposed split. That’s almost a 1000% growth in just a year, and this just goes to show how attractive growth stocks are.
