We're back to help you identify promising growth stocks that may be worthy of your investment dollars. To review, we do this because:

1. Businesses that make investors billions always begin as fast growers.

2. The best of them feature massive and identifiable competitive advantages.

3. Growth as a strategy has the capacity to deliver 20% or greater annual returns for decades at a time.

How we do it
Obviously, it's that last point that's most important. We're searching for the next great multibagger. Think of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) or Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VRTX). But unlike David Gardner and his team at Motley Fool Rule Breakers, who scour everything from financial statements to trade magazines to clinical reports in their research, we're going to rely on the Motley Fool CAPS community-intelligence database.

Specifically, we're looking for stocks that are expected to grow earnings by an average of at least 20% annually over the next five years and which have earned a five-star rating in CAPS. Five-star stocks are those that the community, on the whole, believes will outperform the S&P 500.

Let's have the list
Now, with that preamble behind us, here are five more top growth stocks:


No. of CAPS Ratings

Bullish CAPS Ratings

5-Year Growth Est.

Mindray Medical








Healthextras (NASDAQ:HLEX)








Linktone (NASDAQ:LTON)

Bear in mind that this isn't a list of recommendations. Instead, I offer these stocks as candidates for further research. Among the list, HealthExtras intrigues me the most, for it participates in the booming health-care industry, which, in turn, is fueling in excess of 40% sales growth.

But don't take my word for it. Do your own due diligence, and then check in with thousands of other investors at CAPS. And, if you'd like, add your own commentary. You'll be helping your fellow Fools and testing your ideas at the same time. Click here to get started now; the service is 100% free.
