Sales have grown at an annualized rate of 106% from 2010 through 2016. In 2016, sales grew 30%. Operating margins have been widening year after year. Operating cash flow and free cash flow are steadily rising. Earnings exceeded estimates in each of the last four quarters.

The stock price increased 35% over the last 12 months. Despite the rapid growth, the company trades at 15.8 P/E, compared to 16.6 for the industry and 22.0 for the S&P 500. P/S and P/CF are high at 8.1 and 14.0, respectively. This risk is mitigated by the strong growth rate.
