In our continued effort to identify individual equities that fit within our larger Macro thesis, we recently rolled out our latest bottoms-up scan: “The Minor Leaguers.”
We’ve already had some great trades come out of this column and couldn’t be happier about the early feedback.
Moving forward, we’ll be rotating this column with “Under The Hood” each week.
In order to make it onto our Minor League list, you must have a market cap between $1 and $2B. There are also price and liquidity filters.
Then, we simply sort the stocks by their percentage from new highs. Easy done.
The idea is to catch the strongest names while they’re still small and have serious upside potential. If any of these stocks ever climb up the ranks to the big-leagues, just imagine the returns. We’re looking at 5-10x moves just to break into large-cap status!
And what better time than now to launch a small-cap focused column? We’ve seen very strong evidence of a structural rotation down the market cap scale, suggesting a new period of outperformance from small-caps in the coming months and quarters.
This column is a great way to take advantage of that trend.
Let’s dive in and check out this week’s list of the hottest stocks in the Minor Leagues.
Considering the swift rally back to new record highs for small-caps this week, we again sorted the table by proximity to all-time highs.
All of the names above made new all-time closing highs Friday… And there were actually plenty more as the S&P 600 just registered its most amount of new highs since December 2016.
Now let’s take a look at the best setups we could find within our universe of top-performing small-caps.Lost Password?
