Stocks That Give Apple, Alphabet and Microsoft a Run For their Money
May 23, 2017

  • Bajaj Auto worried about electric vehicles
  • SBI - the proverbial dancing elephant?
  • Microcap Millionaires' threshold for pain

Just last week, one of The India Letter stocks, Avanti Feeds, turned a four bagger.

Ever since Tanushree recommended Avanti, it's growth has been outstanding.

Growth that not only boosted the topline and expanded market share, but profit growth as well.

To most investors, growth stocks are an illusion. Retail investors in particular tend to only see stocks that show a tremendous - but unsustainable - expansion in market cap.

Tanushree showed me data for the top ten companies in terms of market cap. Turns out that new-age companies like Facebook and China's Tencent are giving Apple, Alphabet, and Microsoft a run for their money. What sets them apart is their healthy profit growth compared to the sedate giants.

We shouldn't be surprised if either of these stocks topples the big three in terms of market cap a few years down the line.

And for that matter, Avanti Feeds could find itself in the top indices a decade down the line.
