Looking for a Growth Stock? Why It is Time to Focus on Sociedad Quimica (SQM)

Zacks

Growth stocks can be some of the most exciting picks in the market, as these high-flyers can captivate investors’ attention, and produce big gains as well. However, they can also lead on the downside when the growth story is over, so it is important to find companies which are still seeing strong growth prospects in their businesses.

One such company that might be well-positioned for future earnings growth is Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile S.A. SQM. This firm, which is in the Fertilizers industry, saw EPS growth of 12.8% last year, and is looking great for this year too.

In fact, the current growth estimate for this year calls for earnings-per-share growth of 40.6%. Furthermore, the long-term growth rate is currently an impressive 23.4%, suggesting pretty good prospects for the long haul.
