These 10 growth shares crushed the market over the last 3 months

If you’re like me, you’re probably over all the negativity surrounding the S&P/ASX 200 (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO).

All we hear about is bank shares crashing, the price of oil is plummeting, and our miners are getting pummeled. But, what if we’re not looking in the right places.

Instead of focusing on BHP Billiton Limited (ASX: BHP), Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO) and National Australia Bank Ltd. (ASX: NAB), why not focus on a whole bunch of good news stories about shares that have had an amazing growth spurt over the past 3 months.

Some of them you’ll recognise, and some you won’t, but take some time to read a little about them as you might just find some great value opportunities.

Here they are, 10 shares that have grown by a minimum of 15% to 148% in the past 3 months.
