Growth stocks can be some of the most exciting picks in the market, as these high-flyers can captivate investors' attention, and produce big gains as well. However, these can also lead on the downside when the growth story is over, so it is important to find companies which are still seeing strong growth prospects in their businesses.

One such company that might be well-positioned for future earnings growth is Constellation Brands Inc. ( STZ ). This firm, which is in consumer goods sector, saw EPS growth of 48.4% last year, and is looking great for this year too.

In fact, the current growth estimate for this year calls for earnings-per-share growth of 31.2%. Furthermore, the long-term growth rate is currently an impressive 17.3%, suggesting pretty good prospects for the long haul.

And if this wasn't enough, the stock has actually seen estimates rise over the past month for the current fiscal year by 3.4%. Thanks to this rise in earnings estimates, STZ has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) which further underscores the potential for outperformance in this company.

So if you are looking for a fast growing stock that is still seeing plenty of opportunities on the horizon, make sure to consider STZ. Not only does it have double digit earnings growth prospect, but its impressive Zacks Rank suggests that analysts believe better days are ahead for STZ as well.
