•How do they compare with the actual growth rates that the company experienced over the period studied?
•What are the consequences faced by firms that grow at a rate that is not consistent with their sustainable rate?
•If the firm grew at a rate above or below the SGR, how did it finance its excessive growth or reward its stockholders for the underperformance?
