Investopedia explains 'Growth Investing'
Growth investors often call growth investing a capital growth strategy, since investors seek to maximize their capital gains.
Although it is often said that growth investing and value investing are diametrically opposed, a better way to view these two strategies is to consider a quote by Warren Buffett: "growth and value investing are joined at the hip". Another very famous investor, Peter Lynch, pioneered a hybrid of growth and value investing with what is now commonly referred to as a "growth at a reasonable price (GARP)" strategy.
