The biggest stock market winners tend to have exceptional earnings growth, and the list below highlights companies like top-rated Chinese stocks Baozun (BZUN), Weibo (WB) and Yirendai (YRD), as well as social media giant Facebook (FB) and self-driving car technology leader Nvidia (NVDA).
Of course, while earnings-per-share, or EPS, growth is a crucial factor in choosing the best stocks to buy, it’s not the only one. To improve your returns and reduce risk, run each stock you’re tracking through a Buying Checklist to see how strongly it’s displaying all the CAN SLIM criteria — the seven traits that the top-performing stocks typically display before they launch a major price move.
