Long-term growth (LTG) is an investing strategy where a stock will (hopefully) grow in value for a relatively long period of time.  A “buy-and-hold” investor will consider long-term growth as a longer time period then a day trader will. The buy-and-hold strategy looks ahead farther into the future, giving short-term price swings less consideration as long as the fundamentals stay the same.
