Mike Buckley:If, or after Tinker replies....wish you would answer your own questions....which should answer some nagging ones of mine as well.Tornado formation is a real obstacle for me to overcome for all the "obvious reasons". Having said that, it seems to turn on the E-word..earnings. Not to mention quantifying the dimensions of the earnings as well as the optimum observation interval of successive quarters of such hypergrowth.Assuming all other criteria are in place this should be easier than it seems to be for me. But, alas it's never that easy. Please comment on your guidelines re' your time interval before entry and whether earnings above 50% is the bright line?Seems to me a lot of my confusion, and perhaps that of others as well, (not referring to Tinker of course), occurs when any given company: suddenly, enjoys hypergrowth earnings for several quarters, with perhaps , even some proprietary technology....then becomes classified as a Gorilla, emerging-G, G-candidate, G-in the mist, etc. The usage of these newer categories becomes a confusing matter of semantics for me personally. It appears equally obvious the valuations for many such "undesignated" co.s with rapid growth become substantially discounted by the market in what I perceive to be premature fashion. Makes for a bit of a chaotic challenge to really follow the principles of "The Gorilla Game".Becomes a "tisket..a tasket..a bright yellow basket" instead of the intended basket protocol.I appreciate your ongoing efforts greatly, keith
