In It For The Long Haul? Long Term Growth Pick: LiveRamp Holdings, Inc. (:RAMP)

Shaers of LiveRamp Holdings, Inc. (:RAMP) have been recommended as a long term growth pick according to Beta Research.  With the firm’s stock price currently trading around $47.30, the firm has proven a solid track record of growth over the past few years.  Investors might consider the stock as a long term growth candidate as the firm has yielded -15.10% earnings per share growth over the past 5 years and -3.00% revenue growth over that same time frame. 

When the stock portfolio is diversified, there is a good chance that some stocks will be winners and some will be losers. Regularly reviewing portfolio performance can help the investor stay the course. Keeping track of performance can help spot stocks that might no longer be beneficial to the goals of the investor. There may be times after a review where nothing needs to be adjusted, but staying ahead of the curve can put the individual in a good place when the investing waters become choppy. 

Long-term growth (LTG) is an investing strategy where a stock will (hopefully) grow in value for a relatively long period of time.  Long-term growth should be considered to be a relative term, due to different styles and goals of investors, but the endgame is the same. 

A “buy-and-hold” investor will consider long-term growth as a longer time period then a day trader will. The buy-and-hold strategy looks ahead farther into the future, giving short-term price swings less consideration as long as the fundamentals stay the same.  A trader is looking more closely at a weekly, or shorter, time frame and is more interested in immediate price fluctuations.
