Each of these top growth stocks must also have an EPS rating and an RS rating above 80 to demonstrate strong fundamental and technical strength. To qualify, these fastest-growing stocks must also have an A-SMR rating, which tracks revenue growth, annualized pre-tax profit margin, and return on equity.
