Pick Quality Growth Stock to Increase Potential Return
Invest in high-quality growth stock can maximize your potential return. But the problem is how to quantify high quality? So ClariStock can help you.

7 Key Criteria is Enough and Total Mark above 70
Full mark of each criterion is 100. Remember, higher mark is preferred! If the mark exceeds 80, meaning the stock has done excellently in this area. Search more stocks with total mark above 70, saying they are quality growth stocks (With high growth potentials and strong fundamentals).
1. Total mark: It is the most important criteria. Higher mark means the stock may have a high growth potential, good profitability, strong financial health and sound earnings record in the past.
2. Growth Potential: Higher mark indicates the stock may have a high growth potential, implying strong revenue and profit potential, which stock price may have a high chance to grow!
3. Profitability: Higher mark suggests the stock may have a high profitability, implying strong pricing and earnings power.
4. Financial Strength: Higher mark means the stock may have a good financial health, which has a good balance sheet and cash flow.
5. Q1 2018 Result: High mark indicates this stock delivered an excellent result in the previous quarter. Strong historical result can prove that the growth can be sustainable.
6. Q4 2017 Result: High mark indicates this stock delivered an excellent result in the quarter before the previous quarter. Robust historical result can prove that the growth can be sustainable.
7. 2017 Result: High mark indicates this stock delivered an excellent result in an earlier year. Solid historical result can prove that the growth can be sustainable.
Future growth estimate of a stock is provided. Higher revenue, EPS growth and ROE are preferred.
Estimated P/E is preferred lower. However, you should not only look at estimated P/E alone without comparing to estimated EPS growth. Just like Peter Lynch did, normally, the stock may be undervalued when estimated earnings growth exceeds the estimated P/E. The stock may be expensive when estimated earnings growth is lower than estimated P/E. You should also consider its moat when value a stock.
For example, a stock has estimated 2017 P/E of 25 times, however, the stock is estimated to deliver EPS growth of 30% in 2017, this stock may not be treated as expensive.
Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Alibaba (BABA) are very good examples to illustrate this relationship, P/E of them are always “expensive”, but when you compare them to their estimated EPS growth respectively, they do not seem expensive.
1. Market Sentiment: Be careful, high mark indicates the market is pessimistic about the stock, meaning the share price is relatively cheap compared to historical share price movement, suggesting a good buying opportunity. Normally, pessimism refers the stock price has experienced a correction recently and is at low range and vice versa. If a stock has high total mark and growth potential (>70), buy at low mark of market sentiment is acceptable.
2. Relative valuation: High mark implies the valuation of this stock is quite cheap when compared with its growth potential, suggesting a good buying opportunity. If a stock has high total mark and growth potential (>70), buy at low mark of relative valuation is acceptable.
3. Being a value stock: High mark means this stock can fulfill the criteria that a value investor (Warren Buffett) wants, high ROE, strong pricing power, good financial health, consistent earnings history, etc.
4. Absolute valuation: Be careful! High mark suggests the valuation of this stock is quite cheap. Again you should also consider its total mark and growth potential instead of just considering absolute valuation alone.
