It doesn't require taking high risks to double your money in a stock. Some of the best candidates are often found among the top growth stocks that are already on everyone's radar.

Sometimes great companies fall out of favor with market participants, and that provides an opportunity to buy shares before better news sends the stock higher again. This seems to be what's happening with Unity Software (NYSE:U) and Amazon(NASDAQ:AMZN) right now.

Another example of a candidate for doubling is eBay(NASDAQ:EBAY), which is valued like a slow-growing stalwart but whose current growth suggests it deserves a higher valuation. Here's why these stocks could double within the next three to five years.

Unity Software is the leading platform for creating and operating interactive content, including video games. It's also seeing increasing use outside of gaming, including by engineers, architects, and filmmakers, who rely on the company's software for 3D design work.
