Revenues and Earnings Growth Over 100%

If you like to trade growth stocks, you probably want stocks with strong earnings growth and significant revenue growth. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to have a high return on equity. And it would be nice if the stock paid a decent dividend. A search of companies with revenue and earnings growth over 100%, and return on equity above 30% turns up very few companies, but fortunately all of them pay dividends.

One example is Mesabi Trust (MSB), which is a publicly traded trust that owns interests in iron ore properties. Although earnings and revenues are down year-over-year, on a quarter by quarter basis, they are up over 1000%, with return on equity over 400%. In addition, this debt free stock yields a high 8.6%.

Suburban Propane Partners LP (SPH) is a publicly traded partnership which markets propane, fuel oil, and natural gas. Earnings growth for the latest quarter is up over 300% and revenue growth is up over 100%, with a return on equity of 40%. It pays a yield of 7%.

H&R Block, Inc. (HRB), the tax preparation and tax software company, had earnings growth of over 140% and revenue growth of over 180%, with a return on equity of more than 56%. And tax season isn't even over yet. The quarterly dividend provides investors with a yield of 3.3%.
