DP: One big difference between GG and RB is in the area of hypergrowth.

The risk averse GG screens for the existance of hypergrowth as an investment condition.

RB looks for the potential of a Huge Growth Curve as an investment condition. This condition may be closer to what some investors use for GG Candidates.

Both have proven to be good investment approaches, but there are some differences. I believe we can all benefit from cross-screening potential investments using different approaches, e.g., GG, RB, MI, etc. Each approach has some subtle and some not so subtle differences they are looking for. Knowing these differences, we can learn more about our potential investment thru cross-screening.

However, please don't confuse cross-screening with melding of requirements. As with any compromise solution, we tend to settle on the lowest common denominator appraoch, leaving us with the worst of all possibilities.

Hope this helps with the screening processes.
