After searching through a market with over 2,000 shares, our lead expert investment analyst has narrowed it down to just 2 of his favourite rapid-growth shares in a FREE report to Rask Media readers.

Over the past five years, these two shares have gone from being 'tiny caps' to being serious contenders for the ASX 200.

Idea #1 is taking on the world, starting with the huge USA market. In a just a few short years the company has snatched market share away from rivals and is on its way to being the market leader.

Idea #2 uses a 'printer and cartridge' type model to get large and established customers: a) using their healthcare industry-leading product, b) paying for it again and again and again... so it's little wonder this company is tipped to grow at a rapid pace in 2019.
