What are the best ASX growth stocks to watch in 2022?
Our proprietary algorithm combines a range of factors to determine which ASX stocks could be on a promising trajectory.
The US typically gets the most attention when it comes to choosing high-growth stocks. And it's no surprise. At the time of writing, the S&P 500 has climbed 26.95% YTD.
Closer to home, growth is still strong but certainly more modest. YTD, the ASX 200 has risen by 10.25%. Of course, there are always outliers in any field. But how do you find them?
Using our proprietary algorithm that considers specific growth factors, including performance over 5 years, performance over 1 year, percentage of growth weeks, percentage of growth days and 1-year revenue growth, we've come up with our top ASX growth stocks to watch in 2022.
For a stock to be included in the list, it must have a market cap of at least $100 million and have been listed on the ASX for at least 5 years.
Of course, while our algorithm's picks are informed by data, that doesn't mean it's a fail-safe solution to choosing stocks. Markets change, pandemics happen and past performance isn't indicative of future results.
But, if you're looking for a local investment which has the potential to outperform, this could be a good place to start your own research.
