Top 5 Growing Businesses To Invest In

Deciding where to invest your money can be a little confusing and majorly scary. However, with so many profitable and innovative new companies on the market, now is a great time to invest. Check out these top growing businesses to invest in.

Cognizant Technology Solutions

Still reeling from the recent recession, many companies are beginning to understand the importance of reducing expenses, and they’re also realizing the key role of technology in the workplace. That’s where Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTSH) fits into the picture. The company provides custom technology, consulting and outsourcing services and has experienced immense growth after the recession. In fact, Cognizant saw a 33 percent increase in sales growth over a 12-month period and has sustained a 31 percent 3-year sales growth average.

Aruba Networks

Aruba Networks (ARUN) has secured a firm foothold in the telecommuting trend and, as that trend continues to expand, the company is projected to experience continued and profitable growth. The technological company connects local and remote users to corporate resources through distributed enterprise networks. Its offerings include branch office, campus, mobile and teleworker solutions. Aruba experienced a recent 44 percent increase in sales during a 12-month period and maintains a 3-year sales growth average of 31 percent.


As the healthcare industry continues the move toward cloud-based processes, companies such as Athenahealth (ATHN) stand to fully benefit. Athenahealth offers cloud-based business and clinical services based on electronic health-record software. It was recently named one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world and has clients in nearly all states. The company’s most prized features include an integrated back-office service center and a continuously updated payer knowledge base.

The sales software industry is experiencing a vast migration from computer-based programs to cloud-based solutions. (CRM) is leading the trend with its family of solutions, including online sales software, marketing software and more. This startup has experienced consistent growth averages around 29 percent and offers the world’s top customer service app. A major chunk of the company’s sales growth can be attributed to its innovative monthly rates versus the one-time fees of previous computer-based models.

Of course, the pharmaceutical industry certainly isn’t going anywhere. Near the top of that industry is Actavis (ACT), a global specialty pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures and distributes brand, generic and biosimilar products. This powerhouse was recently created by the consolidation of Watson Pharmaceuticals and the privately-held, Swiss-based Actavis Group.

It’s the world’s third-largest pharmaceutical company and sustains operations in more than 60 countries. Get the latest from Fisher Investments on investing in the pharmaceutical industry and other top industries to earn more from your hard-earned investment dollars.

Investing doesn’t have to be confusing. Rather, by seeking the guidance of a qualified professional and by learning more about the best new companies with the most potential for continued profits, you’ll be well on your way to building a sound portfolio in no time at all.

FYI:  I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 per year.  I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $70,000-$90,000 through blogging, professional pet sitting, hubby's reffing, and our rental home.  If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you, PLUS a free custom header banner from me!).  Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
