DelhiDesk Companies that consistently deliver high profit growth have the potential to generate large stock price returns for investors, according to an analysis by ASK Investment Managers. The study selected stocks from the BSE 500 index with a listed history of seven years or more, and expected a minimum 10% growth in profit annually. Of the 366 companies analysed, 212 fulfilled these criteria and saw their stock prices increase by an average of 19% per year, compared to the 15% increase for the entire basket of 366 stocks. The study emphasised the rarity of companies that can deliver consistent high profit growth, and the greater rewards they offer over a long-term horizon.
