When growth stocks refuse to grow

When you can’t label a stock as “growth” or “value” it can sit in no-man’s land, unloved by just about everyone. And for some investors, that’s a good place to find attractive buying opportunities.

There is no strict definition for what makes a stock accepted by one camp or another. But generally speaking, growth stocks appeal to investors who want fast-rising earnings and revenues, and they don’t worry so much about sky-high valuations. Netflix Inc. and Facebook Inc. fit the mould right now.
