Zacks Equity Research

Growth stocks can be some of the most exciting picks in the market, as these high-flyers can captivate investors’ attention, and produce big gains as well.

One such company that might be well-positioned for future earnings growth is Copart, Inc. CPRT. This firm, which is in the Auction and Valuation Services industry, saw EPS growth of 34.1% last year, and is looking great for this year too.

In fact, the current growth estimate for this year calls for earnings-per-share growth of 24%. Furthermore, the long-term growth rate is currently an impressive 20%, suggesting pretty good prospects for the long haul.
