Peter Lynch categorized companies according to their revenue growth:


• Slow Grower: Inflation < 10-Year Revenue Growth Rate < 10%:
• Stalwart: 10% < 10-Year Revenue Growth Rate < 20%:
• Fast Grower: 10-Year Revenue Growth Rate > 20%:

Be Aware

Revenue can be manipulated by changing the way how revenue is booked. Companies may book sales before the payment is received, or before the revenue is fully earned. These will be added to balance sheet items such as account payable or account receivables.
