The Canadian stock market is coming off another strong week and is now nearing positive territory over the past year. The S&P/TSX Composite Index is up more than 5% in 2023 and close to 10% over the past year.

Ahead of a potential new bull market, I’d recommend investors make sure that their watch lists are up to date. Despite the market’s hot start to the year, there are still deals to be had. But if the market continues to perform as it has over the past month, these deals may not be around for much longer.

With that, I’ve reviewed two Canadian companies that any long-term investor would be wise considering picking up shares of today. Both TSX stocks have a long history of delivering market-beating returns. And I wouldn’t count on that changing anytime soon.

TSX stock #1: goeasy

goeasy (TSX:GSY) has quietly been amongst the top-performing stocks on the TSX over the past decade. Even with the massive returns in recent years, it’s still only valued at a market cap of less than $2 billion. That could be one reason why the company receives such little fanfare. 

Shares have taken a recent hit, providing Canadian investors with a rare chance to get in at a discounted price. The stock is down close to 20% over the past year and is trading more than 50% below all-time highs that were set in late 2021.

Even with the recent slide, though, long-term investors are still sitting on loads of market-beating gains. The growth stock has returned just shy of 150% over the past five years. Going back a decade, the growth stock has been an eight-bagger.

One of the reasons for the stock’s poor performance over the past year and a half has been due to the spike in interest rates. As a consumer-facing financial services provider, demand for goeasy’s services unsurprisingly began slowing, as interest rates began spiking.

These interest rates won’t last at these levels forever, though. We’re already starting to see interest rate hikes put on hold and inflation cool.

Today could be an incredibly opportunistic time to start a position in this top growth stock.

TSX stock #2: Constellation Software

It’s not difficult to find a deal in the tech sector right now, but Constellation Software (TSX:CSU) is not one of them. 

The $50 billion tech company is one of the few in the sector trading near all-time highs. Not only that, shares are priced at more than $2,500, making the tech stock a pricey buy today.

There’s a reason why Constellation Software is worth paying a premium for. Shares haven’t gone on sale often over the past decade, and the tech stock has been as consistent of a market beater as you can find on the TSX.

Growth has begun slowing for the tech stock, as the business continues to mature, but shares are still up a whopping nearly 200% over the past five years. 

There are certainly cheaper alternatives on the TSX right now. But if you’re willing to pay up to own a dependable market-beating growth stock, this would be the company to splurge on.
