Related to recombinant growth factor: EGF


The change in a company's or nation's earnings, revenue, GDP or some other measure from one period of time (usually a year) to the next. Growth shows by how much the measure has grown or shrunk in raw dollar amounts, but may be expressed as a percentage as well. It may or may not be adjusted for inflation.


Growth is an increase in the value of an investment over time. Unlike investments that produce income, those that are designed for growth don't necessarily provide you with a regular source of cash.

A growth company is more likely to reinvest its profits to build its business. If the company prospers, however, its stock typically increases in value.

Stocks, stock mutual funds, and real estate may all be classified as growth investments, but some stocks and mutual funds emphasize growth more than others.
