Hmm... I have no idea what to suggest. The links work for me. They simply lead to some old articles of ours. I can't imagine why they won't work for you -- though I believe you. Cyberspace is full of odd glitches.

Perhaps someone else can offer some insight??

Maybe try again tomorrow? Maybe try viewing them in a different browser??

I don't have anything to suggest about the blank screens. The links work for me. But, meanwhile, to help the OP:

"'CAGR' stands for Compound Annual Growth Rate. It is a measure of the rate of return on an investment."

This is the Compounded Annual Growth Rate. If a company had Sales of \$10 million in 2000 and \$25 million in 2004, one could say that Sales grew by a 150% or they could say it grew at a CAGR of 25.7% which is 25.7% a year for 4 years. The equation is (End Amount/Beg Amount)^(1/Years)-1 or (25/10)^(1/4)-1.
