Virgin Galactic (NYSE:SPCE) stock blasted off on Friday on news that the company announced it had landed Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval for full commercial space operations. Basically, Virgin Galactic can now fly paying customers into space, which is bullish for SPCE stock holders.

This further bolsters SPCE stock’s current out-of-this-world run.
SPCE Stock’s Meteoric Rise
Five weeks ago, this was a $15 stock.

And even after an initial boom into the $20 range, we still recommended SPCE stock. We said it would continue to rise and would soon hit $50. And it did.
Virgin Galactic flawlessly launched a successful test flight, announced tentative plans to fly Richard Branson into space over July 4th weekend and just now won FAA approval for full operations. As a result, we’ve hit that $50+ price point.
Everything is firing on all cylinders at Virgin Galactic.
We think this is the beginning of Virgin going from “cool concept” to “valuable business.”
Over the next six months, Virgin will start flying people into space. Over the next five years, those few-and-far-between flights will become more regular. And over the next 10 years, Virgin Galactic will be operating multiple spaceports. They’ll be flying dozens of people into space from those spaceports every single month.
And the company will be generating billions of dollars in high-margin revenue.
It All Starts Now
The future is here and very, very bright. We love Virgin Galactic SPCE stock in the long term.
There is some concern with respect to valuation and short squeezing here, with SPCE stock pushing up against a historical barrier in terms of valuation. A lot of this recent rally can be attributed to short-sellers covering their positions. This cannot last forever.
And as such, we expect a near-term pullback in SPCE stock. But that pullback will be a fantastic time to buy, because this stock is solid.
SPCE is one of my top picks in the Space Race 2.0 megatrend. Long-term, this stock will score investors big returns.
But it’s not the only high-growth, high-return stock on my radar today.
In fact, I have more than 40 hypergrowth stocks that could score investors Amazon-like returns over the next months and years.
These stocks include the world’s most exciting autonomous vehicle startup, a world-class “Digitainment” stock creating the building blocks of the metaverse, a company that we fully believe is a “Tesla-killer,” and many more.
