Stars of Yesterday

Description:

From ThinkBLOG.

We screened over 10,000 public companies using FactSet to find the top 25 performing stocks on an absolute return basis from January 1996 to December 2006. While the average stock appreciated an average of 42% per year during that time frame â€" that’s what you’d expect from a list of exceptional performers. What’s interesting is the median P/E at the beginning of outperformance was 33.2x â€" obviously high.

What offset this was the median EPS growth rate for these companies was 48%.

Also noteworthy was the average market cap for the top performers at the beginning of the 10-year period was $113 million and the median was a miniscule $33 million. When we did this before, we excluded companies with a market cap below $100 million, but if we did that, we would have excluded mega stocks, such as Hansen’s, Chico’s and American Eagle Outfitters.
