Description: Hot Topic (HOTT) sells music based clothing apparel to the younger crowd of today's generation (ages 15-22). Its popularity has increased greatly with its age group each year it has been in business.

Like its ticker, this stock is way HOTT! Why? Well, just look at the numbers. Sales are up 52.3% from one year ago, and employee growth has grown exactly 48.0%. Since this stock went public, both revenue and EPS has continued to grow steadily each and every year. This is due to the fact that Hot Topic opens an average of 50 new store locations every year. This is all based on a simple business concept that a lot of companies fail to use today. Hot Topic keeps their liabilities to a minimum, and their assets to a maximum. This stock is definitely a keeper for the long term.
