The 8 most promising stocks for the next decade



From smartwatches to insulin sprays that act in seconds, from 3D printers to podcasts, to satellite imagery and drone cabs: these are the objects that will shape everyday life in our near future, and it is precisely the companies most at the forefront of these fields that are the promising stocks to bet on in the next ten years. According to the report “Future 2033: The Most Promising Stocks in the Next 10 Years” by XTB, an international fintech listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange and one of the largest FX and CFD brokers, investors are being asked to monitor the stocks of eight companies in particular: Apple, 3D Systems, Novo Nordisk, Spotify, Nvidia, Maxar Technologies, EHang and Palantir. 

Walid Koudmani, Chief Market Analyst at XTB, reports:

“On a typical day 10 years from now when we wake up, 3D Systems’ 3D printer will have already ‘made’ us breakfast; on our way to work, the electric car will be playing our favorite podcast because radio stations will likely have disappeared absorbed into content by Spotify; in the office we will be attending the first meetings of the day with colleagues from around the world, wearing Nvidia’s virtual reality goggles that will holographically materialize us all in the same room, and if we work on one of Italy’s largest farms, upon notification of a problem in a particular hectare under our jurisdiction, we will be able to instantly request a high-resolution image using one of Maxar Technologies’ satellites, and if it is necessary to intervene in the field, we will be able to book an air cab made by eHang that will quickly get us to that hectare that is so inaccessible by land.” 

From tech to healthcare, the most promising stocks coincide with companies that are characterized by being on the frontier of innovation. Starting with tech stocks which, after a troubled 2022, have seen earnings reliability return to strength driven by the growth of cloud computing, semiconductor enhancement, and the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Also enjoying excellent health is the drone market, which is estimated to have revenues of $90 billion by 2030 (up from $13.7 billion in 2021), while on the healthcare front, advances in the ability to diagnose, monitor, and treat disease, including through increasingly personalized therapies, are creating a wide range of investment opportunities, and it is very likely that the innovative healthcare market could grow at the same pace as tech.  

Koudmani continues:

“These are stocks that have had a mixed performance this quarter but as earnings season begins, they will be watched closely within the scenario of factors that could contribute to their performance. 

These factors include for instance rising interest rates that would make it more expensive for companies to borrow money, weighing on their earnings. Or the ongoing war in Ukraine, which by creating uncertainty in the global economy, has led some investors to sell these stocks to seek less risky investments. On the other hand, the growth of cloud computing could continue to drive earnings growth for tech companies, as could the continued evolution of artificial intelligence and virtual reality. These technologies have the potential to disrupt a range of industries and could create new opportunities for companies. Overall, although the outlook for these companies is uncertain in the short term, given the potential growth drivers, they could be an attractive investment over the long term.”
