Apr 27, 2020 (IAM Newswire via COMTEX) -- Keep in mind that we’re in uncertain times as this unprecedented health crisis has put the world and the global economy at a virtual standstill. Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow and therefore only rare ones dare to forecast short-term market movements. We know we are in for an economic downturn but how bad will it be? And more intriguingly, how different will the world be? But, if there is a rule when it comes to recessions is that they tend to clean the market of weakest players, but they help strong players become great players.

As long as you don’t need this money in the next few years, growth stocks are a good way to go as they are literally planted seeds which are bound to flourish in the future. Growth stock investing isn’t about making a quick buck, they are all about future rewards.

Three high-quality stocks that should have years of growth ahead of them surely are PayPal Holdings /zigman2/quotes/208054269/composite PYPL +0.91% , Nike /zigman2/quotes/203439053/composite NKE +1.24% and a little bit less known animal health company, Zoetis /zigman2/quotes/207603157/composite ZTS -0.31% .

PayPal

PayPal will only be growing and growing as it secured its placement being the first digital payment processor in China. Its app is rallying and it is forcing its endless rivals up their game in the digital sphere. And we don't just mean startups but also Wall Street big shots such as Bank of America, Citigroup and JP Morgan. Although PayPal is losing its primary payment processor status at eBay /zigman2/quotes/204653455/composite EBAY +1.42% , it has sufficient activity to compensate this loss thanks to its other partners: with Argentinian MercadoLibre /zigman2/quotes/200678442/composite MELI +4.08% even going against the e-commerce giant Amazon /zigman2/quotes/210331248/composite AMZN -0.04% itself. PayPal has positioned itself wisely to capture both the Chinese and Latin America markets.

Nike

Nike is a well-managed company that’s simply masterful when it comes to promoting and growing its brand as it is surely among the most valuable brands in the whole world.

The pandemic has led to closure of its stores and factories in China but its fiscal third quarter of 2020 which ended on February 29 [th] was impressive to say the least as digital sales came to the rescue and resulted in a strong double-digit growth that approached a triple digit growth. Moreover, the pandemic will surely result in consumer behaviour as we learn more about health and wellness, and these are all the values embodied by the Nike swoosh. And by navigating this storm, yet again, Nike showed the world how things are to be done by just doing it.

Along with expanding margins and well-managed expenses and impressive earnings per share prior to the outbreak, Nike proved yet again that it is so much more than a sportswear manufacturer. Its growing online presence is warming up Nike so it can keep running ahead. And for many years ahead.

Zoetis

Committed pet owners will always make sure their beloved furry family members are well taken care of and this has led to so many new businesses such as pet grooming and even clothing. But one thing that is not debatable is health and veterinary medicine has progressed so much to enable our furry friends to be in our lives as long as possible.

Zoetis sells medicines, vaccines, diagnostics, and biodevices for companion and farm animals. And considering animal shelters in the U.S. have reported a boom in pet adoptions during the pandemic along with long-term global growth in pet ownership, this company will have its hands full! Last year alone, sales in the companion-animal segment that make up a half of its total revenue grew a strong 23% excluding currency effects. As for its full year revenue, it grew 7.5% whereas adjusted earnings per share jumped 16%.

This company has the potential to grow even faster over the long term due to its new product innovations. It has what it takes to make through this downturn due to strategic acquisitions that build its integral pet care portfolio such as by acquiring the medical and veterinary diagnostics company Abaxis.

The bottom-line

How do you define these companies as they are playing on entirely different fields? By what they have in common and that is that their product and services are of great value to their customers. So, no matter which scenario we wake up to tomorrow, and we already know that it won't be a pleasant one, these companies will do just fine and so will their investors.
