Growth Stock — акции роста. Ценные бумаги, которые, как ожидают, дадут инвесторам устойчивый рост капитала (capital growth). Инвесторы и менеджеры, занимающиеся инвестициями, часто делают различие между акциями быстро растущих компаний и прибыльными акциями. Предполагается, что первые дадут прирост капитала за счет реализованного прироста их рыночной стоимости (capital gains), последние-высокий доход. Обычно инвестор рассматривает в качестве быстро растущих активов, цена которых повышается, обыкновенные акции компании, чья продукция находит хороший сбыт, а продажи, судя по всему, будут расширяться, которая много вкладывает в новое оборудование, чьи доходы растут, имеющей сильное, инициативное руководство, делающее инвестиции в развитие продукции и в долгосрочные исследования. Компании вкладывают значительную часть дохода в разработку новой продукции, а потому выплачивают небольшой дивиденд или не выплачивают его совсем.
