With Q1 nearing completion, here’s a look at the fastest-growing stocks to watch in 2021. Led by The Container Store (TCS), Pinterest (PINS), Futu (FUTU), Daqo New Energy (DQ) and Ternium (TX) are among 11 stocks expecting 84% to 263% earnings growth this year.
Given the brighter outlook for the travel and leisure sectors after the shutdowns in 2020, Winnebago Industries (WGO) and Thor Industries (THO) also make the cut. WGO stock and THO stock have both been motoring to new highs.
While 2021 estimates for FUTU stock (104%) and PINS stock (100%) place them among today’s fastest-growing stocks, potential signs of trouble have clouded the horizon.
Beginning in late February, PINS stock sold off sharply, slicing below its 50-day moving average in heavy volume. Pinterest is now trying to retake that benchmark line, but volume has been below average on the attempted rebound.
Despite posting 880% EPS growth and a 283% sales increase for Q4 on March 16, FUTU stock retreated after reporting. The Chinese brokerage and wealth management platform remains above the 10-week line but may come down to test support.
Shining as one of the best solar energy stocks to watch, Daqo New Energy broke out on Dec. 15. But like PINS stock and FUTU stock, Daqo has faded off its old highs.
Such action in the fastest-growing stocks like PINS, FUTU and Daqo means it’s a time to be cautious. As these highfliers correct and possibly set up new chart patterns, investors in growth stocks may want to reduce their holdings and limit exposure.
