On Wednesday, our Elite Opportunity Pronewsletter suggested going long again on small cap gene therapy stock Spark Therapeutics (NASDAQ: ONCE):
Financially, Spark Therapeutics has over $300M in cash on the books and no debt to speak of yet, which equates to a share price of just over four times cash. The Company has generated over $20M in revenue for the trailing twelve months, and although the Company is expected to continue to lose money for the next few years, any strong clinical data that hits the tape could rocket shares of ONCE overnight, just like we’ve seen with so many others over the years.

Doubling your money in a relatively short time is much tougher. It typically involves investing in younger, less established companies that have lots of growth potential but could give a lot of ground if a few things don’t swing their way. There are, though, some stocks that look like they have a double in them over a relatively short time frame, and three of our investing contributors think Spark Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ONCE), Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO), and American Tower (NYSE:AMT) fit the bill.

Of course, in many cyclical industries, it’s impossible to maintain very strong growth rates when the economy slumps. And that was a lesson learned by Eagle Materials (NYSE: EXP(link is external)), a maker of drywall, cement and other materials used in homebuilding. Eagle experienced solid growth a decade ago, but when the housing market tanked, so did Eagle’s revenue base. Sales fell by half from fiscal 2007 through fiscal 2011 (to around $460 million).
Yet even before the pace of home construction returns to normal levels, Eagle is again experiencing solid growth: Sales are now growing at a 30% pace and are expected to surpass $1.1 billion in the current fiscal year, which began this month. That’s 25% higher than the peak in fiscal 2007, and it’s setting the stage for solid profit growth: Earnings per share (EPS) are growing at a 50% pace these days, a pace which could be sustained for an extended period if the housing market finally starts to grow at a solid clip.
