Roblox(NYSE:RBLX) is one growth stock where the business is performing exceptionally well. Users continue to sign up by the millions to play games and create content on its co-experience platform. 

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic upended the traditional in-person educational model, and while most kids in the U.S. have returned to their classrooms over the course of this school year, many are still learning virtually for some or all of their classes. In some districts, the school day has been temporarily shortened. Further, many extracurricular activities are still suspended, and entertainment options outside the home have remained limited. All of that has combined over the past 15 months or so to give young people more time for gaming, and that has benefited Roblox immensely. Revenue, engagement, and signups all surged.
