Earnings: The Indispensable Element Of Great Stocks

So, Here's What You Want To Look For When Researching Your Stocks:

  • Quarterly earnings-per-share growth of at least 25% over the same quarter the year before.
  • Preferably, accelerating earnings in the three most recent quarters.
  • Annual earnings-per-share gains of at least 25% over the past three years.

Strong companies with good management teams, innovative products and leadership in their industries boast the best earnings and reflect the best investing potential. Remember, in a good market, the opportunity of a lifetime stock can come along every two or three weeks.
