13 Best Growth Stocks Under $10 to Buy

In this piece, we will take a look at the 13 best growth stocks under $10 to buy. If you want to skip our overview of growth investing and the latest stock market news, then you can take a look at the 5 Best Growth Stocks Under $10 to Buy.

The AI gold rush on Wall Street has enabled indexes to set new records and allowed companies like NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) to reshape the valuation dynamics of the stock market. This surge, which has covered any company that investors believe has exposure to the demand for AI hardware and software, has also shown that growth stocks are the right way to go when considering profits through share price appreciation.

These stocks are those that are determined by investors to have significant competitive advantages that can ensure that their future earnings are significantly higher than current levels. This optimism is reflected through their share prices, and analysts and investors measure the investor sentiment through the price to earnings ratio. The higher the P/E ratio is compared to the industry benchmark, the more investors believe that the future is bright. At the same time, growth stocks are also among the riskiest in the market.

This is because the value of a stock is a reflection of the investors' belief in its future. A share price shows what investors expect a company can earn in the future, with these expectations adding to the potential fundamental based valuation that might be baked into the share price. Consequently, since expectations can be fickle, and in today's fast paced news environment news spreads like wildfire, the share price can tank much faster than it took to build the gains.

In fact, we don't have to sift through many growth stocks to understand this risk. Continuing with our discussion of NVIDIA, the firm's trailing P/E ratio currently sits at 69.09 while the forward P/E ratio is 34.25. The recent growth in its earnings has brought this valuation down to earth, since as recently as in July 2023, NVIDIA's trailing P/E ratio was 243.38. So how does this relate to the risks with growth stocks? Well, in April 2024, another AI stock, the San Jose, California based semiconductor firm Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMCI) failed to release a preliminary earnings report ahead of its earnings for the first quarter of 2024. While it's normal for firms to not post this report, for Super Micro, it was a deviation from historic norms that led analysts to wonder if there was something amiss that the firm was uncertain of declaring before its official results came out.

As a result, the growth expectations that were baked into semiconductor growth AI stocks had to shift. For Super Micro, the aftermath was devastating as the shares tanked by a whopping 23% despite the fact that its P/E ratio has floated around 20 - 25 for most of the past twelve months. For NVIDIA, the firm that had a triple digit P/E ratio the news was just as bad, as, despite no fault of its own, the re calibration of investor expectations that are baked into a growth stock also led to a 10% NVIDIA share price drop.

Since NVIDIA is heading into yet another crucial earnings release, and now with the backdrop of potential trouble at Super Micro, let's see what the hedge funds are saying about this growth stock. Here's one such excerpt from Polen Capital's investor letter for the fourth quarter of 2023:

Given many of NVIDIA’s customers or its end customers are still very much in the experimentation phase with generative AI, it is unclear how sustainable the current demand for GPUs truly is. At the same time, it is known that NVIDIA has historically been highly cyclical. By the end of 2024, we believe NVIDIA will already account for roughly half the market for datacenter chips, servers, and networking equipment, which is unprecedented. Even though the valuation at 25x forward earnings doesn’t look very demanding at first glance, it assumes NVIDIA will own virtually the entire datacenter chip market in just the next few years and will sustain year-on-year growth despite being a cyclical business that is currently experiencing much higher new peaks.

We believe NVIDIA is a highly advantaged business, but we also believe the long-term growth outcomes are currently too variable, and the expectations built into the company’s $1.2 trillion valuation as of this writing assume the most optimistic of those scenarios.

So, as the first quarter of 2024 earnings season is shaping to be quite an interesting one indeed, let's take a look at some growth stocks that are trading for under $10. A couple of notable picks are NexGen Energy Ltd. (NYSE:NXE), BGC Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:BGC), and Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. (NYSE:AQN).
