    Always be wary of comparisons in percentage changes when the raw data is not reported.

    For example, A may have gone from 1m to 1.25m (+25%), B may have gone from 500k to 650k (+30%), while C may have gone from 50k to 80k (+60%).

    On a percentage basis C is the winner.   On a volume basis A is the winner.   Relativity of the 'base number' is vital.
