Planned investment management is essential for earning income from existing assets for both organizations and individuals. This income enables organizations to invest further in growth, leading to greater profitability. Individuals also look at income from investment as a means to secure the future. To attain these investment objectives, there are several strategies employed. High growth investment is one of the investment strategies available to investors.
All investors naturally desire maximum return on their investment. But there is a component of risk associated with investments. High growth investment is a high risk investment strategy. This means that in a high growth investment strategy, investments are made in stocks and other assets, which have the potential to give high returns, but the risks associated are high too. Companies and individuals who follow high growth investment strategies are referred to as growth investors.
Features of High Growth Investments
Growth investors scout the market for stocks that show great potential for growth. The assumption is that these stock values will show high growth over a period of time, resulting in high profits for the investors. Different growth investors have their own perceptions of what constitutes a high growth fund, but the basic rule to go by is that it is a stock that exhibits above market average profits over a period of time.
The main benefit of investing in high growth funds is the greater returns that you get. It is necessary to bear in mind that all the blue chip companies of today started out as high growth stocks. Astute growth investors picked them up and the investments made enabled these organizations to grow further and reach their current market position. Google is one such example. Of course the flipside is that high growth funds are associated with high risks too, as with the dot-com boom in the 1990s. Investors looking for high growth investment invested in several start-up dot com companies during that period. Everyone earned well for some time, but with the burst of the dot com bubble, several investors suffered high losses and some were completely wiped out.
While making investment decisions, it is never a good idea to 'put all your eggs in one basket'. It is ideal to have a mix of high growth investment options as well as low risk investment options. The proportion of the two will depend upon a number of factors like your requirement for disposable income and your ability to absorb losses. In general, younger investors may opt for a greater percentage of high growth investment in the mix, because they can afford to start from scratch, in case they encounter huge losses.
Selection of High Growth Funds
High growth investment, as a strategy relies considerably on the judgment of the investor about the company and his confidence about their ability to do well. High growth funds include recovery shares, emerging markets and small companies showing potential for growth and companies with first mover advantage in a niche.
Some of the industrial sectors that are usually considered by growth investors include health care, information technology including mobile communication and travel and hospitality.
For making the best choices for high growth investment, it is necessary to keep an eye on the market and spot current trends and understand which industry stocks have the greatest chances of doing well.
