# Growth Rates

Fundamental Analysis Term

Growth rate is a measure of the rate at which a company's revenue, earnings, or other financial metrics are increasing over time. It is used in fundamental analysis as an indicator of a company's potential for future growth and a key factor in determining a company's valuation.

The growth rate can be calculated for various financial metrics such as revenue, EPS (earnings per share), net income, and cash flow. The formula for calculating the annual growth rate is:

[(Current Year Value/Prior Year Value)^1/Number of Years]-1

For example, if a company's revenue was \$100 million in the previous year and \$120 million in the current year, the annual growth rate would be calculated as follows:

[(120/100)^1/1]-1 = 0.20 or 20%

A higher growth rate indicates strong future growth potential, while a lower growth rate suggests that the company may be reaching maturity or experiencing difficulties.

Investors and analysts often use growth rates to assess the performance of a company relative to its competitors and the wider market. It can also be used to forecast future earnings growth and help determine a company's intrinsic value. However, it is important to note that growth rates are not always indicative of future performance and should be used in conjunction with other fundamental and technical analysis tools.
