It was especially impressive considering the uncertainty that followed a combative and historic United States presidential election. Today, I want to look at three TSX stocks that are scorching hot, as we move into the middle of November. Should you buy these surging stocks right now?
This red-hot TSX stock is worthy of your attention
When it comes to TSX stocks in the e-commerce space, Shopify has sucked up a lot of the attention. This should come as no surprise considering Shopify’s incredible performance since its IPO in 2015. However, Lightspeed POS (TSX:LSPD)(NYSE:LSPD) is another company operating in this space that is picking up momentum. Its shares have climbed 42% in 2020 as of close on November 6.
Lightspeed released its second-quarter fiscal 2021 results on November 5. Revenue soared 62% year over year to $45.5 million. Moreover, its customer locations increased to over 80,000 worldwide.
