3 Explosive Growth Stocks to Buy This Week for Under $50

After a challenging year, growth stocks are expected to stage a recovery this year amid easing inflation and the Fed’s downshift on monetary policy tightening. Furthermore, recent strong economic data fed investors' and economists’ hopes that the economy could achieve a soft landing. Hence, it could be wise to buy fundamentally sound growth stocks ADT (ADT), Box (BOX), and (CARS) for significant returns. Keep reading…

Over the past year, growth stocks got pummeled amid record-high inflation and a rising interest rate environment. However, 2023 could be the year of growth stocks as the Fed is expected to pull off a soft landing. Hence, explosive growth stocks ADT Inc. (ADT), Box, Inc. (BOX), and Inc. (CARS), which are trading under $50, could be ideal investments this week.

Growth stocks declined dramatically in 2022. They were under significant pressure from rising yields throughout the year and underperformed their economically linked value peers. The S&P 500 growth index lost nearly 30.1% last year, while the value index was down 7.4%.

However, growth stocks are all set to stage a rebound this year amid smaller interest rate hikes in response to cooling inflation and the growing probability of the economy achieving a soft landing. Inflation cooled to 6.4% over the past year in January, down from 6.5% in December and the peak of 9.1% in June last year.

The central bank acknowledged the easing inflation and raised interest rates by 25 basis points last month, the smallest increase since it began hiking rates in March 2022.

Continued moderation in inflation and stronger-than-expected economic data, including strong retail sales and a robust labor market, indicates continued economic resilience. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said a soft landing is possible for the economy thanks to solid jobs growth and the absence of balance sheet problems.

Moreover, according to Goldman Sachs’ (GS) Chief Credit Strategist Lotfi Karoui, despite the Fed not cutting interest rates this year, it will likely pull off a soft landing.

Let’s evaluate ADT, BOX, and CARS to understand their upside potential amid the current market backdrop.
