One such company that might be well-positioned for future earnings growth is Korea Electric Power Corp.KEP . This firm, which is in the Utility - Electric Power industry, saw significant EPS growth last year, and is looking great for this year too.

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