100 Best Growth Stocks – Part VII

Here is a current sheet of the top 100 fastest growth stocks researched by Fortune Magazine. The best growing companies were screened by the following criteria’s:

- A company (domestic or foreign) traded on a major U.S. stock exchange
- Report data in U.S. dollars
- File quarterly reports with the SEC
- A minimum market capitalization of USD 250 million
- Stock price above USD 5 on June 30, 2010 and been trading continuously over the past 3 years
- Revenue and net income of at least USD 50 million and USD 10 million respectively
- Growth in revenues and earnings per share of at least 15% annually over the past 3 years

Companies that meet these criteria’s are ranked by revenue growth; earnings per share growth rate as well as three year annualized total return for the period ended June 30, 2010. The overall rank is based on the sum of the three ranks. Once the 100 companies are identified, they are then re-ranked within the 100, using the three equally weighted variables. If there is a tie, the company with the larger four-quarter revenue receives the higher rank. This article is divided into several parts and sorted by the fortune rank.

In average, the price to earnings ratio amounts to 21.21, price to book ratio 3.78 and price to sales ratio 3.43. Earnings per share grew by 50 percent over the past three years, revenues by 33 percent yearly. The average total debt to assets ratio is 14.59. The companies realized an operating margin of 21.93.
