Larry,

Do you consider whether the growth rates are increasing or 
decreasing ? Wouldn't a decreasing growth rate indicate that these 
growth rates are not sustainable?

I just checked the growth rates of the companies that you had 
posted. I couldn't find data for all quarters for SINA. I have 
included OVTI in the list. This compares quarterly revenue growth yoy 
for the last 5 quarters. 1Q yoy growth is the most recent quarter, 2Q 
yoy is the previous quarter etc.

                  NTE(1)   OVTI(2)   SOHU(3)  UTSI(4)    NTES(5)
---------------------------------------------------------------       
1Q yoy growth      123       204       215       75       254
2Q yoy growth       72       206       218       80       393
3Q yoy growth       13        77       157       52       813
4Q yoy growth       -4        50       110       55       943
5Q yoy growth       -6        40       113       65       638

Though NTES has the best yoy growth rate in the list, its growth
rate has been falling for the past 4 quarters. A growth rate of 943%
probably was not sustainable. SOHU on the other hand, has an increasing
growth rate over the past 5 quarters.

So, for "rate of growth rate", NTE is on the top of the list followed 
by OVTI, SOHU, UTSI and NTES. 

Comments appreciated.
