Robust, high-growth companies such as UQM Technologies are appealing to investors for many reasons. They bring about a strong upside to your portfolio, and less downside risk as opposed to financially challenged companies. The list I’ve put together below are of stocks that compare favourably on all criteria, which potentially makes them a good investment if you believe the growth has not already been reflected in the share price.
UQM Technologies, Inc. (AMEX:UQM)
UQM Technologies, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures, and sells electric motors, generators, power electronic controllers, and fuel cell compressors in the United states and internationally. Formed in 1967, and currently lead by Joseph Mitchell, the company now has 51 employees and with the company’s market cap sitting at USD $59.01M, it falls under the small-cap category.
UQM is expected to deliver an extremely high earnings growth over the next couple of years of 60.33%, bolstered by a significant revenue which is expected to more than double. An affirming signal is when net income increase is supported by top-line growth. Since net income isn’t artificially inflated by one-off initiatives such as cost-cutting, we know this profit growth is more likely to be sustainable. UQM’s bullish prospects on both the top and bottom lines make it an interesting stock to invest more time to understand how it can add value to your portfolio. Interested to learn more about UQM?

Furthermore, the 32.78% growth in operating cash flows indicates that a good portion of this earnings increase is high-quality, day-to-day cash generated by the business, rather than one-offs.
