2021 was another stunning year for my Growth Investor stocks!
We booked triple-digit gains in 15 positions and double-digit gains in 15 stocks. We experienced a few lumps, too, cutting our losses in several stocks, but we averaged a 62% gain in our sold positions this year.
Needless to say, I’m very pleased with my Growth Investor stocks’ performance. Considering that my Buy List stocks remain characterized by 34.5% annual sales growth and 44.4% annual earnings growth, I anticipate my stocks will continue to exhibit relative strength in 2022, especially when the fourth-quarter earnings season kicks off in late January.
The reality is earnings momentum has tapped the brakes for many S&P 500 companies, as year-over-year comparisons have become more difficult. As a result, the breadth and power of the overall stock market will narrow and become more fundamentally focused in the New Year. This is fantastic news for my Growth Investor stocks since they have traditionally prospered in a narrowing market environment.
As I explained in yesterday’s Growth Investor Monthly Issue for January, we are now entering a funnel. Institutional buying pressure is growing more focused on companies that can achieve accelerating earnings momentum in a slowing earnings environment. My fundamentally superior Growth Investor stocks fit the bill, and they should attract persistent institutional investor attention and buying pressure in 2022.
Now, the financial media would have you believe otherwise, proclaiming the Federal Reserve’s efforts to tame inflation in 2022 (i.e., raising key interest rates) will be detrimental to growth stocks. But the fact is higher rates hurt value stocks. Growth stocks have historically been great inflation hedges, prospering regardless of the overall interest rate environment. So, I expect the current inflationary environment will continue to reward my Growth Investor stocks in the New Year.
The bottom line: My Growth Investor stocks will continue to soar in 2022—and there are a few buckets of stocks that I anticipate will prosper immensely in the New Year.
The Accelerated Technological Change
While inflation has certainly been a negative repercussion of the global pandemic, there have been positive developments in the wake of the pandemic. Namely, the pandemic accelerated technological change and boosted productivity in the U.S.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that U.S. labor productivity has increased for five-straight quarters, following a “historic decline” in the second quarter of 2020. Overall, labor productivity is up 1.8% since the fourth quarter of 2019.
There are several industries that have profited from and will continue to lead this “productivity miracle” in the New Year. The biggest winners, in my opinion, are the Artificial Intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, 5G, electric vehicles and semiconductor industries. What’s great is that my Growth Investor Buy Lists are already chock-full of companies directly in line to profit from the boom in these industries.
In Friday’s Growth Investor Monthly Issue, I shared the Growth Investor stocks that are poised to benefit in the AI, 5G, EV and semiconductor industries. I also added three new stocks to further align my Growth Investor Buy Lists to profit from the “productivity miracle.” (Click here to find out the names now.)
But I’m not just interested in stocks that are well-positioned to do well from the accelerated technological change and boosted productivity. I want the stocks that are going to be an oasis amidst the inflationary bubbles rolling through the U.S. and world economy. And I believe that’s just the case with Growth Investor.
In fact, I believe my Growth Investor stocks could outperform the S&P 500 by nearly three-to-one, since, based on my calculation, my High-Growth Investments Buy List has posted an average monthly cumulative gain of 1,700% since December 12, 1997, which compares to the S&P 500’s 678.9% gain in the same period.
If you want the opportunity to really grow your portfolio, I recommend that you consider my Growth Investor stocks. And you really couldn’t be joining at a better time. As I mentioned, I just released my Growth Investor Monthly Issue for January, which includes three new buys that are poised to soar amid the “productivity miracle.” In addition, I revealed my latest Top 5 High-Growth stocks and Top 3 Elite Dividend Payers stocks.

P.S. There is a great divide opening up in America – and investing in my Growth Investor stocks will help get you on the right side of it. On one side is a new aristocracy that’s amassing more wealth more quickly than any other group in American history. For people like me, the one percent, life has never been better, more prosperous.
On the other side, the opposite is happening. Wealth is flowing out of the pockets of ordinary Americans at an unprecedented rate.
What’s happening is only going to gather in strength over the coming decades. It certainly won’t weaken.
Few Americans even know that any of this is going on. I’ve never seen anyone from my side of the chasm step forward to explain any of these things.
It’s why I put together this video. In it, I’ll lay out exactly what is happening, including several key steps every American should take right now.
It doesn’t matter if you have $500 in savings or $5 million. You can benefit from the information in this video.
It’s free to watch, and by doing so, I know you’ll be ahead of everyone else struggling to understand what is really going on.
