Glossary Term: GROWTH

Definition(s) for GROWTH:


1. ) In contrast to value investing, it refers to an investment style that looks for companies with above-average current and projected-earnings growth. Growth investors believe in buying stocks with superior earnings growth no matter what the price. growth stocks tend to have very high earnings-growth rates but very low dividend yields. These firms all trade at high valuation levels, meaning they usually have high price-to-book (P/B) and price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-sales (P/S) ratios. Because of their high prices and low yields, growth stocks tend to have less downside protection or margin of safely and more volatility than cheaper companies. They are particularly sensitive to rising interest rates, which can put a damper on their rapid earnings growth.

2. ) An increase as in, size, number, value, or strength.
