Finding Growth In A Slow-Growth Economy

Growth has been sluggish in the United States for some time now. But in a recent Seeking Alpha column, Validea CEO John Reese says that doesn’t mean there’s no growth to be had for investors.

“While the broader economy continues its muddle-through advance, many individual companies are putting up some very impressive growth numbers,” Reese writes. “And with so many fearful about the overall economy, a lot of these fast-growing firms’ shares are available for significantly cheaper than they might otherwise be.”

Reese says his Guru Strategies, each of which is based on the approach of a different investing great, have been finding a number of growth plays lately. He looks at five of them, including MWI Veterinary Supply.
