Growth Stocks: Separating the Winners From the Losers

Growth investing relies on a simple premise: Find great companies that will outperform over the long haul, outgrowing their premium valuations over time. This, of course, is easier said than done. In the video below, Fool contributor Daniel Sparks discusses a great way to tell the gold from the fool's gold. To illustrate, he takes a look at Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM  ) and Panera Bread (NASDAQ: PNRA  ) .

It's hard to believe that a grocery store could book investors more than 30 times their initial investment, but that's just what Whole Foods has done for those who saw the organic trend coming some 20 years ago. However, it may not be too late to participate in the long-term growth of this organic foods powerhouse. In this premium report on the company, we walk through the key must-know items for every Whole Foods investor, including the main opportunities and threats facing the company.

    No. I for one want far, far more intellectual rigor.

    That means, not only finding interesting growth companies, but deciding what is a reasonable price to pay for them. Nowadays, TMF spends far too much time vaguely saying 'Nice company!' and not nearly ('educate' - remember that?) on whether said nice company is an investment.

    I find WFM and PNRA (which I own) too highly valued currently to be worthwhile adding more.
