What it does: Manufactures and sells flat-screen, high-definition televisions.

Why it's growing: We're all upgrading to hi-def. The Consumer Electronics Association projects 15.7 million HDTVs will be sold in 2007, up from 2.1 million in 2002. By manufacturing overseas, Vizio is able to offer high-quality TVs at low prices. This fall, the company will begin selling a 52-inch full HD LCD television for less than $2,000.
