2 Stocks That Could Turn $10,000 Into $50,000 by 2025

person holding chart

This high-growth duo could deliver jaw-dropping returns over the next three years.

Since the end of the Great Recession in 2009, growth stocks have been a powerful force on Wall Street. Historically low lending rates and the Federal Reserve's easy money policies have allowed fast-paced companies to hire, innovate, acquire, and invest in their businesses.

Even with the Fed hinting at raising rates to control runaway inflation, these dynamics are unlikely to change to a large degree anytime soon, which makes growth stocks still a good bet to continue to outperform.

Among people with an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) stroke, a type of bleeding stroke, recent marijuana users were more than twice as likely to develop a dangerous complication that can result in death or greater disability, according to new research published today in Stroke, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association. The study is the largest to examine the impact of THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive component (change of a person's mental state) of marijuana on complications after an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (a rare but severe form of stroke).

Industry Waits On FDA Approval To Reach Its Full Potential, But Producers Are Still Hopeful

Across the country, bags of hemp grown as long ago as 2019 still sit in barns, waiting to be sold and extracted. 

When the 2018 Farm Bill legalized industrial hemp, most growers grew hemp for cannabidiol (CBD) extraction, because it had a high profit-to-acreage ratio. With an estimated 455% increase in U.S. hemp producers, the CBD industry quickly found itself with a glut of product and not enough consumer demand. Moreover, there wasn’t enough processing capacity to make the crop profitable.

cannabis

Trulieve's acquisition of Harvest Health puts it in a neck-and-neck race with Curaleaf.

Today, two of the top companies in the marijuana industry are Curaleaf Holdings (OTC:CURLF) and Trulieve Cannabis (OTC:TCNNF). Both are cannabis producers with a presence in many states across the country, and they generated similar revenue in their most recent quarterly results. Trulieve has gotten a big boost due to its recent acquisition of Harvest Health, which closed last year and gave the company many more growth opportunities.

Below, I'll look at which business will likely bring in more revenue in 2022. That could be key in determining which stock generates better returns for its investors.

What 2021 Taught Us About Young People And Cannabis Use

high school kids

Medical and cannabis professionals wouldn’t confirm that teen use was in the downturn, however, 2021 offered substantial studies  to suggest that may be the case.

The possible effects of cannabis on young people will continue to be of the utmost concern as the legal marketplace takes shape. Throughout 2021, several studies helped further comprehension of an area that still suffers from a significant education gap.

While nothing became definitive in 2021, research helped advance understanding for several critical areas.

Minors don’t appear to be using cannabis more as states legalize — or at all in some cases.
