Companies that have projected EPS growth rates above 25% bring positive attention to themselves. The next question of course, is whether or not the company is well positioned to achieve that growth. One important factor to look for is zero to minimal debt. This informs investors that the company has not already utilized debt to fund growth and a sound capital infrastructure remains. If the characteristics of significant growth over the next five years and little debt speak to you, then you will like our list of Internet stocks below.

EPS growth (earnings per share growth) illustrates the growth of earnings per share over time. The 5-Year Expected EPS Growth Rate is a long term annual growth estimate, where the growth projections are made by analysts, the company or other credible sources.

The Long Term Debt/Equity Ratio is a variation of the traditional debt-to-equity ratio; this value computes the proportion of a company's long-term debt compared to its available capital. By using this ratio, investors can identify the amount of leverage utilized by a specific company and compare it to others to help analyze the company's risk exposure. Generally, companies that finance a greater portion of their capital via debt are considered riskier than those with lower leverage ratios.

We first looked for internet stocks. We then looked for businesses that are considered high-growth, with 5-year projected EPS growth above 25%. From here, we then looked for companies that operate with little to no long term debt (Long Term D/E Ratio<.1). We did not screen out any market caps.
