4. Analyzing Company Fundamentals > Investing in Growth

Investing in Growth

When companies increase their earnings over time, the companies become more valuable. Higher earnings can lead to more assets owned, more money to invest in producing additional growth, higher dividends paid out, and higher shareholders’ equity in the company. As the value of a company increases, investors are willing to pay more to own it, so the price of the company’s stock increases as well.

Investing in growth companies is easier than you might think. Once you know what to look for, growing companies are easy to recognize and easy to track. With growth companies as investments, you don’t have to worry too much about whether the stock market is up or down, where a company is in its business cycle, or whether a company’s turnaround strategy is successful. You can review financial performance when a company publishes a new quarterly report every three months to see if it’s still on track. As long as the company continues to grow earnings at a healthy pace, its stock price should increase as well.
