3 Underappreciated Stocks That Could 10x in 10 Years

Stocks to buy

Like achieving a hole-in-one, holding a tenbagger is one of the best results any investor could wish for. A term popularized by legendary investor Peter Lynch, these stocks are innovators with the potential to grow exponentially. Indeed, 10x stocks are market disrupters and innovators. And they create products people love. 

Today, I’m on the hunt for three potential 10x stocks to result in a home run. To come up with the list, I screened for the following criteria:

  1. Small-mid cap stocks ($300 million to $10 billion market cap)
  2. Has a buy rating based on analyst consensus
  3. Minimum double-digit revenue growth year-over-year (YOY)

Then, I sorted all the stocks based on the lowest to highest upside potential. This ensures a focus on stocks growing their sales, favored by Wall Street analyst optimism.

Recently, it announced positive results for the VERVE-101 clinical trial. Also, the company continuously works to ensure the resolution of setbacks it encountered along the way. 

In other news, promising data from its ongoing clinical trial Heart-1 Phase 1bl has been reported. It is its first human proof-of-concept for in vivo base editing, targeting the PCSK9 gene to reduce LDL-C levels in patients. 

With a market cap of $535 million, analysts agree that VERV is worth looking at. A strong buy rating and a 524% upside mean if you’re looking for companies with high growth potential, VERV is an excellent candidate to 10x.

Known for DAXXIFY DaxibotulinumtoxinA-lanm, Revance Therapeutics (NASDAQ:RVNC) focuses on developing and commercializing neuromodulator aesthetic therapeutic indications. 

Revance Therapeutics partnered with Viatris to commercialize DAXXIFY® in China and develop a biosimilar to onabotulinumtoxinA injection. The company has also previously announced its J-code permanent assignment to DAXXIFY® for treating cervical dystonia in adults.

Revance Therapeutics ended fiscal year 2023 on a strong footing. Revenue came in at $234.0 million, a 77% YOY growth. The company attributes this to increased RHA Collection and DAXXIFY sales, which saw 28% and 80% growth, respectively. 

Moreover, Revance Therapeutics expects 2024 product revenue to grow to at least $280 million, highlighting its potential in the U.S. aesthetics market.

With its growing revenue and strong product numbers, it’s clear that analysts rate Revance Therapeutics as a strong buy with an upside of as much as 659%. So, if you are looking for 10x stocks, RVNC should be on your watchlist.
