Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) is in a good position to capitalize on the artificial intelligence (AI) boom and deliver value to shareholders. The company’s data center solutions have attracted big customers like Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). These two companies have deep pockets, and AI is a critical component of their future plans. That dynamic increases the likelihood of them continuing to work with Arista Networks for many years to come.

The company delivers software-driven cloud networking solutions and has rewarded investors with high returns. Shares are up by 98% over the past year and 280% over the past five years.

Arista Networks reported 20.8% year-over-year revenue growth in Q4 2023 and ramped up its net income from $427.1 million to $613.6 million. That’s a 43.7% year-over-year increase. The company is still growing at a fast pace and closed the quarter with a 39.8% net profit margin. ANET currently trades at a 41 P/E ratio.

E.l.f. Beauty’s (NYSE:ELF) revenue growth came in at an impressive 85% year-over-year in Q3 FY24, and net income grew by 40.7% year-over-year. That successful quarter prompted the company to raise its fiscal 2024 outlook. The midpoint of adjusted net income jumped from $145 million to $165 million in fiscal 2024 guidance. That’s a 13.8% increase.

The company has a reputation for exceeding guidance and raising its forecasts. It also hiked its net sales projection from a $901 million midpoint to a $985 million midpoint. The new midpoint is 9.3% higher than the new one.

Guidance implies net income will grow at a faster rate than revenue. That’s good for investors seeking higher profits, especially with revenue growth still coming in strong.

E.l.f. Beauty differentiates itself from other beauty brands by excluding unethical ingredients from its beauty products. The company is gaining market share rapidly and has been a big hit among Gen Z.
