Profit Growth : 70%
Revenue Growth : 52%
Total Return : 60%
Net Income : $38,617 million

The top ten companies in the list are (in order) – silver sourcing company Silver Wheaton of Vancouver, BC; audio decoder chip manufacturer and Apple supplier Cirrus Logic from Austin, TX; search engine Baidu based in Beijing, China; oil refiners HollyFrontier out of Dallax, TX; Pittsburgh, PA’s real estate vendor HFF; athletic clothes supplier lululemon athletica based in Vancouver, BC; energy company Northern Oil and Gas headquartered in Wayzata, MN; Apple in eighth place; fiber laser developer IPG Photonics from Oxford, MA; and oilfield services company RPC in Atlanta, GA.
