In the fast-paced world of finance, identifying stocks with long-term growth potential is akin to discovering hidden treasures. Investors searching for such gems need not look any further than Open Text (TSX:OTEX), Shopify (TSX:SHOP), and Topicus (TSXV:TOI).
These three stocks have not only shown remarkable growth but are also well-positioned to capitalize on the expanding markets of cybersecurity, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud data, e-commerce, and software company expansion in the coming decade.
Open Text stock, a global leader in information management solutions, is poised to thrive in the era of cybersecurity, AI, and cloud data expansion. The cybersecurity market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.9% from 2021 to 2028, reaching a staggering US$366.1 billion by 2028. As cyber threats become more sophisticated, the demand for comprehensive cybersecurity solutions like those offered by Open Text is expected to surge.
Moreover, Open Text stock’s focus on artificial intelligence and cloud data management positions it as a frontrunner in these rapidly expanding fields. Cloud data is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 15.7% from 2021 to 2028. Open Text’s AI-powered solutions and cloud-based data management services are well aligned with these trends, ensuring sustained growth in the years ahead.
Between 2015 and 2021, Open Text’s stock exhibited impressive growth, with its share price increasing from around $45 to approximately $66, representing a gain of nearly 47%. With the cybersecurity, AI, and cloud data markets set to explode, OpenText appears well positioned to continue this upward trajectory.
Shopify stock, the ecommerce giant, has been a game changer in the retail landscape. The global ecommerce market is on an upward trajectory, and Shopify stock is at the forefront of this revolution. According to Statista, global e-commerce sales are projected to reach US$6.4 trillion by 2024, up from US$3.5 trillion in 2019. This exponential growth is driven by a shift in consumer behaviour toward online shopping, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Shopify stock’s performance between 2015 and 2021 is nothing short of remarkable. Its share price skyrocketed from approximately $27 to over $1,400, marking an astounding gain of over 5,100%. This meteoric rise is a testament to Shopify stock’s ability to capitalize on the booming e-commerce market.
Furthermore, Shopify stock’s diverse suite of services, including online store platforms, payment processing, and fulfillment solutions, positions it as a one-stop shop for businesses looking to establish and expand their online presence. As the e-commerce sector continues to expand, Shopify stock is set to benefit from the rising tide.
Topicus, a software solutions provider, is primed for growth in the software industry. The software market is expected to flourish as businesses increasingly rely on technology to enhance efficiency and productivity. According to Grand View Research, the global software market is anticipated to reach $507.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 13.6%.
Topicus, with its portfolio of software solutions tailored for various industries, is well poised to capitalize on this market expansion. Its innovative software offerings, including data management, customer relationship management, and enterprise resource planning solutions, cater to the evolving needs of businesses in the digital age.
The company’s remarkable performance reflects the market’s recognition of Topicus stock as a leading player in the software sector, and it suggests that the company has the potential for further growth in the coming years.
In conclusion, these stocks have all exhibited impressive growth over the years. Each is well positioned to capitalize on the expanding markets of cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, cloud data, e-commerce, and software companies in the next decade.
As these sectors continue to grow at a rapid pace, investors may find these stocks to be promising long-term investments, potentially delivering substantial returns in the years ahead. However, it’s crucial for investors to conduct thorough research and consider their risk tolerance before making investment decisions in the ever-evolving world of finance.

STORY: Nestled in the northern Armenian town of Tumanyan, a derelict factory is roaring back to life.The once forgotten and decaying Soviet textile factory has been repurposed as a shelter and art space.It’s now a sanctuary for artists and other emigres from Russia, Iran and Ukraine, whose lives have been turned upside down by war and political turmoil. Polina Ivanova launched the project – called "Abastan" or shelter in Armenian – in late 2022.She says locals were unconvinced at first, but have since come accepted it.Reuters went to take a look in August and September of this year. "It’s a relationship that has become much better over time. I think at the beginning people were really weary and there was very little trust. And now every day there are more friendships, more trust. Sometimes there’s tension, but we are aware of that, we expect this to happen. But I think that for every moment of tension that arises, even every bit of conflict… eventually is productive for the relationship."The space now hosts creatives from around the world – from painters, to puppet-makers and photographers…Like Arghavan Majd – a painter from Iran.When she was interviewed a few weeks by Reuters she said that while the atmosphere in Armenia is still conservative in nature, she feels freer and more able to make personal connections. Since Majd left Iran, the country has been convulsed by protests over the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody.She says she now has no intention of returning home.Torfeh Ekhlasi, a puppet maker also from Iran, has used the town as a means of escape."If we compare Armenia to Iran, I feel that we sadder there. We are completely paralyzed by bad news… But here all the people are so alive."Also escaping is Danil.A software engineer from the Russian city of Perm, he left after President Vladimir Putin called up 300,000 men last year to fight in the war in Ukraine."I came here on October 14, 2022, after the partial mobilization was announced in Russia. I did not agree with the country’s politics and thought that it was dangerous to stay in Russia given my views. So I painted over a “Z” (pro-Russian war symbol) symbol on my house and left the country."How do the locals now feel about having become a haven for young emigres?68-year-old Ararat says the repurposed factory has helped breathe new life in the town of 1,000 people…Bringing joy to a place that had seen factory closures, unemployment and emigration since the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.

The richest Americans are emerging from the coronavirus pandemic with their share of wealth and income on the rise again despite some thought that the tight job market and hefty wage gains spawned by the crisis might narrow the gulf between rich and poor. Recent data from the Federal Reserve shows the top 1% of households by income held roughly 26.5% of household net worth at the end of June, up about 1.5 percentage points since 2019, the year before the pandemic bounced the economy between recession, massive government stimulus and high inflation. For the bottom 40% by income that means a smaller slice of the pie even as their net worth has risen at the swiftest pace in years.
