Growth stocks continue to retain investor interest in the stock market today . Despite their recent pullback in March, they have been picking up momentum again. By definition, growth stocks are stocks whose revenue and earnings are expected to increase at a faster rate than the average company. Investors who are looking to diversify their portfolios could consider adding these stocks given their long-term growth potential. Given how growth stocks can fall into any industry, tech stocks are prime examples. These stocks can range from software to semiconductors and artificial intelligence (AI). The sector also includes some of the largest market capitalizations in the world like Microsoft ( NASDAQ: MSFT ) and Amazon ( NASDAQ: AMZN ).

Even with the gains that the sector has enjoyed last year, these companies are certainly not resting on their laurels. Tech companies are continuously finding ways to innovate and refine their products. For instance, Nvidia ( NASDAQ: NVDA ) and AMD ( NASDAQ: AMD ) have released their next-generation GPUs and have received rave reviews for the leap in performance and value. The impact was so profound that the GPUs may have contributed to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin reaching an all-time high recently. When investors invest in growth stocks, they would anticipate that they will earn money through capital gains when they eventually sell their shares in the future. With that in mind, here is a list of top growth stocks to consider adding to your portfolio.
