Have you ever had some stocks that doubled in a year, quadrupled in five years and even tenfold in ten years? I do. But I sold the stocks before they started to run. No good choice from me.

Only growth can make you rich. If you buy a stock at a low market capitalization and the company grows over the next twenty years with rates around the double-digit rage, your wealth will follow.

So let’s consider the best growth stocks of the recent decade. Many of the stocks on this list started out small and obscure, however. Eight of the companies were valued below $100 million a decade ago. And four of the companies still have market caps below $1 billion, even with the remarkable returns they were able to generate over the past decade.

Only two stocks from this list pay dividends currently. But each of these stocks has more to offer, specifically, growth and cash.

Apple (AAPL) has a market capitalization of $482.44 billion. The company employs 72,800 people, generates revenue of $156.508 billion and has a net income of $41.733 billion. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $58.446 billion. The EBITDA margin is 37.34 percent (the operating margin is 35.30 percent and the net profit margin 26.67 percent).

Financial Analysis: AAPL has no long-term debt. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 42.84 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $44.16. Last fiscal year, the company paid $2.65 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 11.61, the P/S ratio is 3.10 and the P/B ratio is finally 4.09. The dividend yield amounts to 2.06 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.21.
