Even though the major U.S. stock market indexes are within a stone's throw of an all-time high, history tells us that it's always a good time to put your money to work, as long as you're a long-term investor. That's because every crash or correction has eventually been put into the rearview mirror. In short, the stock market is a maker of millionaires.

But to become a millionaire -- or better yet a multimillionaire -- you'll first need to buy and hold game-changing and innovative companies. The following five supercharged stocks all have the tangible and intangible attributes of companies that can make you a millionaire.

Social media sites are mostly a dime a dozen, but up-and-comer Pinterest(NYSE:PINS) is proving to be something special. That's because unlike most social media destinations, its user growth hasn't hit a brick wall. In fact, after ending March with 478 million monthly active users (MAU), it's only a matter of time before Pinterest crosses the psychologically important 500-million-user threshold.
