2022 has not been a year with a great start for TSX investors. The volatility that began towards the end of last year has seeped into 2022. Various geopolitical factors, impending interest rate hikes, inflationary conditions, and supply chain challenges have kept the broader market in a shaky territory for several weeks.
Risk-averse investors are particularly wary of investing in growth stocks during such market environments. However, investors with a stomach to tolerate capital risk might consider these conditions ideal for picking out high-growth stocks for attractive valuations.
Not all growth stocks are doomed to a horrible fate. Some high-quality businesses that can weather the storm can be excellent long-term investment opportunities for investors who can identify them.
