A great way to be a growth stock investor, per our Motley Fool Investing Philosophy, is to buy 25 or more shares, and expects to hold them for at least five years. It gives you a decent chance to eventually own at least one or more big winners, and it also gives companies time to grow and stocks to perform.
There are three ways to double your money in the stock market. You can mix and match, maybe do a little of all three, or you can reasonably just stick to index funds. If they deliver an average annual growth rate of 10%, you can double your money in 7.2 years.
