·2-min read

For new and old investors, taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals.

Thus, they'll want to focus on the Growth Style Score, which analyzes characteristics like projected and historical earnings, sales, and cash flow to find stocks that will see sustainable growth over time.
