BusinessWeek compiles the Hot Growth Companies list by sifting through a database of 2,200 publicly traded companies with revenues of $50 million to $1.5 billion a year. The companies are then ranked by sales and earnings growth, as well as return on capital over three years. Contenders must have a market cap of $25 million or more and a stock that trades for at least $5 per share.
