The Facebook IPO unleashed a new wave of interest in the technology sector. To help expose investors to other tech companies worth consideration, we ran screen for stocks based on their expected growth trends. We hope you like what we found.

EPS growth (earnings per share growth) illustrates the growth of earnings per share over time. The 1-Year Expected EPS Growth Rate is an annual growth estimate, where the growth projections are made by analysts, the company or other credible sources.

We first looked for internet stocks. From here, we then looked for companies that are considered high-growth, with 1-year projected EPS growth above 25%. We then looked for businesses that analysts rate as "Buy" (2 < mean recommendation < 3). We did not screen out any market caps.
