1. Already up 67% on the year, Houlihan Lokey is one of the best momentum stocks you can buy today. $HLI operates (and dominates) three segments: Corporate Finance, Financial Restructuring, and Financial Advisory Services—and as a company, Houlihan scores off the charts in every financial metric.
It’s time for another ‘buy and hold’ stock for your consideration. And as with any long-term investment, be prepared to hold this stock for a few years…maybe decades.
Paylocity manages payroll, workforce management, benefits, data insights, and more. With everyone looking to cut labor, the desire to efficiently manage operations is going to be critical for businesses going forward—and that’s where $PCTY shines.
Paylocity is currently trading between $270-$275/share and could reach $1,000/share in the next 12-years.
CF Bankshares is a national bank (headquartered in Worthington, Ohio) that originates commercial real estate, single/multi-family loans, and home equity lines of credit.
Their sales numbers numbers are good—and equity growth rate is (even) better. With plenty of cash on hand and strong (ROIC) Return on Investment Capital, $CFBK is a strong (and affordable) ‘buy and hold’ investment idea.
CF Bankshares is currently trading around $20/share and moving towards $60/share—just give it about 3-years.
Ollie’s is a holding company that engages in the retail of excess inventory, refurbished goods, and salvage merchandise.
With a market cap of nearly six billion dollars and an A+ ratings across every financial measurement. Currently trading between $82-84/share, I fully expect OLLI to reach $176/share in the next seven years.
Innoviva (INVA) is a leading bio-pharmaceuticals firm based in California. Backed by impressive growth numbers (sales and earnings per share) INVA’s management team has done a great job of reinvesting in key growth areas.
Innoviva is currently trading between $11-12/share and showing strong signs of reaching $30/share in 6-years or less.
Security National Financial Corp. offers Life insurance, Cemetery/Mortuary services, and Mortgage loans.
The Life insurance segment sells and services selected life insurance lines, annuity products, accident, and health insurance. The Cemetery & Mortuary segment consists of seven mortuaries and five cemeteries in Utah and one cemetery in the state of California.
And lastly, the Mortgage Loan segment is an approved government mortgage lender that originates and underwrites residential and commercial loans for new construction, existing homes, and real estate projects. At less than $10 share, excellent financials, and a never-ending supply of customers, this company can see $24/share in the next three years.
Virtu Financial Inc. is not as strong as my other (buy & hold) ideas, but it’s still top tier when compared to the overall market. The one thing that’s undeniable are VIRT’s financials. Sales, profits, and cash growth rates are excellent.
Equity growth rate is not great but it’s good, and their return on investment capital is better than average—and trending upward.
There isn’t a lot of public information about them, and their website is horrible but they’re running a very profitable business with no signs of slowing down. I think this stock ($26.78/share) will at least double in 4-years.
Salesforce is among my five favorite stocks to BUY and Hold for the next ten years. They score off the charts in every financial metric and continue to grow at an astounding rate. I think it’ll take eight years for CRM to double, so grab it now while the getting is good.
If you’re interested in this one, you can get in at $215-$220/share and out around $600/share in 8-years or so.
Right up there with Amazon, ENSG is one of the safest investment recommendations I can make. Not only do they have a pristine reputation, but their (ever-growing) cash reserves position them to withstand the kind of economic downturns that send CEO’s into early retirement.
If you’re interested in this one, you can get in at $82/share and out around $185/share in 6-7 years.
