3 (More) Stocks to Buy Before They Become the Next Trillion-Dollar Companies

Now is a great time to look for the next trillion-dollar companies. With monetary policymakers from across the globe landing in Sintra, Portugal, for 2023’s ECB Forum on Central Banking, to say this week is significant for the economic realm would be an understatement. This year, the forum is centered on “Macroeconomic Stabilization in a Volatile Inflation Environment,” and it can be expected that price stability amid rate hikes and changing energy markets will be a pressing topic of debate.

Of course, such issues regarding inflation are subject to change–especially as the Commerce Department plans to release this month’s PCE price index on Friday. This publication, shedding further light on the efficacy of the Fed’s rate hikes, will prove useful for investors interested in high-growth stocks, which have historically performed better in lower-inflation periods. If so, an upsurge in the performance of tech giants could be expected, particularly those getting involved with the current AI fad. As this decision unfolds, these three stocks are innovating their respective industries while maintaining superb financials. High activity in acquisitions and partnerships further serves as a staple for strong management capabilities.

CrowdStrike Holdings (NASDAQ:CRWD) is a globally leading cybersecurity company focused on its pioneering platform built to constantly adapt to new technologies, CrowdStrike Falcon. Its Security Cloud is able to process trillions of cybersecurity events every week, providing large amounts of data that become a powerful competitive advantage that scales as more data is fed into the Falcon platform.

The cybersecurity market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 15.84%, from $5.20 billion in 2022 to $12.56 billion by 2028. This is due to evolving AI technologies, which are pivotal in preventing cybersecurity breaches.

CRWD stock has grown 40.85% in the last six months due to AI advancements and strong Q1 financials. The company’s non-GAAP EPS of $0.57 beat consensus by $0.07, revenue of $692.58 million experienced 42% YoY growth, beating consensus by $16.35 million, and net-new ARR increased by $174 million.

CrowdStrike has a unique position in the AI cybersecurity realm as it can leverage the enormous amount of data processable by its platform. CrowdStrike’s ability to input these datasets into language models is a powerful competitive advantage that beats out other cybersecurity vendors who do not have the extent of data that CrowdStrike does. This leads to the company’s biggest growth catalyst, Charlotte AI, which leverages its immense dataset advantage to train a powerful AI to produce faster results and better security outcomes, all at a lower cost. In tandem with CrowdStrike’s unique continuous human feedback loop with its OverWatch, Falcon Complete, and Intel teams, no other vendor can match this approach to generative AI.

Yahoo Finance reports 42 analysts with a mean 1-year target price of $177.40, spanning as low as $128.00 and as high as $235.00. Many notable firms have rated CRWD as a “Buy,” with no downgrades. CrowdStrike’s unique dataset and continuous feedback loop that culminates in its Charlotte AI product offering is an unmatched competitive advantage from any cybersecurity vendor, reinforcing the “Buy” rating. This makes it a great bet among the next trillion-dollar companies.

The ViaSat-3 will be able to deliver coverage to America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia at download speeds exceeding 100 Mbps while weighing only 6 tons. It is additionally lighter and has greater coverage than the previous generation. Through this launch, Viasat expands its international customer base to civilians and other governments through improved telecommunication services.

Furthermore, leadership completed its recent acquisition of British telecommunication company Inmarsat. This acquisition helps with expanding its European citizen customer base and allows for taking on existing contracts Inmarsat had with the European Government to ultimately drive revenue.

Lastly, VSAT stock is up 22.4% YTD and has an average predicted twelve-month 44.8% upside from analysts.
