What you need to know about growth

Livewire Exclusive

Growth is an important consideration when assessing a potential investment, regardless of investment style. The finance media often portrays growth and value as two opposing sides, but Warren Buffett put this myth to bed nearly 25 years ago in his ’92 letter to Berkshire shareholders; “Most analysts feel they must choose between two approaches customarily thought to be in opposition: 'value' and 'growth.' We view that as fuzzy thinking… Growth is always a component in the calculation of value, constituting a variable whose importance can range from negligible to enormous and whose impact can be negative as well as positive.” While this explains the significance of growth, it raises the question of how to assess the growth prospects of a company. We asked three of our contributors what factors they look at when analyzing how far, and fast a company can grow.
