10 Best Young Stocks to Buy and Hold For Next 20 Years

In this article, we discuss 10 best young stocks to buy and hold for the next 20 years. If you want to read about some more young stocks, go directly to 5 Best Young Stocks to Buy and Hold For Next 20 Years.

Even though growth stocks have taken a beating in the past few months as recession fears mount due to an aggressive Federal Reserve looking to bring inflation under control, investors continue to view the growth-laden tech sector as one of the major long-term catalysts for the stock market. This is evident from the flurry of hedge fund activity seen in IPO firms like Coupang, Inc. (NYSE:CPNG), Qualtrics International Inc. (NASDAQ:XM), and Affirm Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:AFRM) over the past few months. 

Although IPO activity has declined dramatically in 2022 compared to the record numbers of 2021, registering a 44% year-over-year decline in global IPOs with proceeds down by 57%, the firms that have debuted on the market are trading at bargain valuations compared to their growth potential. As uncertainties subside and normalcy returns, the improved returns of these young stocks are likely to attract even more investors. Some of the sectors that are already seeing these trends, with the highest volume of IPOs, are the technology and energy industries. 

Our Methodology

These companies that recently debuted on the stock market and have long-term growth catalysts were selected for the list. In order to provide readers with some context for their investment choices, the business fundamentals and analyst ratings for the stocks are also discussed. A database of around 900 elite hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey in the second quarter of 2022 was used to quantify the popularity of each stock in the hedge fund universe.

“We have been building our position in SoFi Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:SOFI) over the last two quarters but have not yet written about our thesis until now. SoFi is an online financial technology company that started off refinancing student loans. This segment remains a big part of the company’s business, but they have more recently expanded their products to offer an entire suite of financial services including personal banking, investing, and credit. While their collection of products is still evolving and not yet complete, we believe the company is in the early stages of its inflection. The company nearly doubled its member count over the past year and is growing 50%+ despite its loan refinancing business taking a hit due to the COVID-related loan moratorium. Furthermore, the company is close to obtaining a bank charter through its acquisition of Golden Pacific Bancorp, a community bank based in Sacramento. A bank charter would allow SoFi to take in its own customer deposits, lowering its cost of capital and expanding the company’s breadth of financial offerings.

While SoFi is not the only online banking platform out there, we believe it could take a decent share of the financial services market. Banking is a notoriously sticky business, as the inconvenience and hassle of switching banks prevent consumers from jumping to competitors regardless of cost. This is one of the reasons that traditional banks are one of the few businesses to have truly been disrupted by technology. We think SoFi is well on its way to changing that and creating a new paradigm for the future of consumer banking and financial services (read more)
