Why ASML Holding (ASML) Could Be an Impressive Growth Stock

Growth stocks can be some of the most exciting picks in the market, as these high-flyers can captivate investors’ attention, and produce big gains as well. However, they can also lead on the downside when the growth story is over, so it is important to find companies which are still seeing strong growth prospects in their businesses.

One such company that might be well-positioned for future earnings growth is ASML Holding N.V. ASML. This firm, which is in the Semiconductor Equipment - Wafer Fabrication industry, saw EPS growth of 40.6% last year, and is looking great for this year too.

In fact, the current growth estimate for this year calls for earnings-per-share growth of 58.2%. Furthermore, the long-term growth rate is currently an impressive 29.8%, suggesting pretty good prospects for the long haul.

If you’re looking for big gains, there couldn’t be a better time to get in on a young industry primed to skyrocket from $17.7 billion back in 2019 to an expected $73.6 billion by 2027.

After a clean sweep of 6 election referendums in 5 states, pot is now legal in 36 states plus D.C. Federal legalization is expected soon and that could be a still greater bonanza for investors. Even before the latest wave of legalization, Zacks Investment Research has recommended pot stocks that have shot up as high as +285.9%.
