Growth Investing Books

 There are predominantly two investing styles followed by investors:

  1. Value
  2. Growth

Growth investors invest in companies that are growing at above average growth rate. They are more focused on sales and earnings growth and willing to pay higher premium for such stocks.


Growth stock investors are high expectation investors as against value investors who are low expectation investor. The basic assumption behind growth investing is that the market will continue to reward a company growing faster than other companies. the key to success in growth investing is to identify early stage growth company and ride it till it is growing and abandon it before the growth slows down. Often growth investors are called patsies playing the greater fool game.

These are all books related to growth investing from my personal collection. Some of these I have reviewed before, but I will do a fresh review of some of the major books from this list.
