SQ Stock, RH Stock Among Fastest-Growing Stocks Expecting Up To 4,900% Growth In Q1

With companies getting ready to report Q1 earnings, here’s a look at the fastest-growing stocks with big expectations. Square (SQ), Polaris (PII), RH (RH), 360 DigiTech (QFIN), MarineMax (HZO) and Williams Sonoma (WSM) are among 27 growth stocks expecting at least a 100% earnings increase in Q1 or their next fiscal quarter report.


Academy Sports & Outdoor (ASO) leads the list, with analysts looking for a 4,900% earnings bounce in Q1. Since going public less than seven months ago, ASO stock has quickly earned a spot among the best IPOs to buy and watch.

Academy Sports Among Fastest Growing Stocks

Starting as a tire shop in San Antonio in 1938, today Academy Sports & Outdoor is a sporting goods and outdoor recreation retailer operating over 250 stories in 16 states. The company was bought by KKR (KKR) in 2011 and went public in October 2020.

The upward trajectory of the relative strength line reflects the sharp run-up the stock has seen since its market debut. The company has posted average annual EPS growth of 85% over the last three years and earns an A SMR Rating, which tracks sales growth, profit margins and return on equity.

Academy Sports just reported earnings for fiscal Q4 and 2020, which ended on Jan. 30. ASO stock has continued to rise on the news.
