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 EPAM Systems, Inc.EPAM . This firm, which is in the Computers - IT Services industry, saw EPS growth of 29.1% last year, and is looking great for this year too.
