Versum Materials and Cytokinetics can add profound upside to your portfolio. This is because the optimistic growth outlook for their profitability and returns make their high-growth potential appealing relative to their peers. If a buoyant growth prospect is what you’re after in your next investment, I’ve put together a list of high-growth stocks you may be interested in, based on the latest financial data from each company.

Versum Materials, Inc. (NYSE:VSM)

Versum Materials, Inc. develops, manufactures, transports, and handles specialty materials for the semiconductor and display industries in the United States, Taiwan, South Korea, China, Europe, and rest of Asia. Started in 2015, and run by CEO Guillermo Novo, the company employs 2,200 people and with the stock’s market cap sitting at USD $3.91B, it comes under the mid-cap stocks category.

Driven by the positive double-digit sales growth of 14.90% over the next few years, VSM is expected to deliver an excellent earnings growth of 20.64%. Profit growth, coupled with top-line expansion, is a positive indication. This is because net income isn’t artificially inflated by unsustainable activities such as one-off cost-reductions expected in the future. We see this bottom-line expansion directly benefiting shareholders, with expected return on equity coming in at a notable 191.91%. VSM ticks the boxes for robust growth generation on all levels of line items, which makes it an appealing stock to dig into deeper. Interested to learn more about VSM?
