5 Persistent Small Cap Winners

Not only does Value Line provide analysis of 1700 larger more popular stocks but they also offer a Small & Mid Cap Survey offering analysis of 1800 smaller stocks. One of their screens sorts all those stocks into percentiles of price growth persistence over the last 10 year period. Today I used the Value Line screener to sort those smaller stocks by stocks that were in the 80 - 100 percentile range and then used Barchart to see which stock currently had upward momentum as indicated by Barchart's technical buy indicators.

The top 5 were Home Bancshares (NASDAQ:HOMB), Littelfuse (NASDAQ:LFUS), Primerica (NYSE:PRI), First Interstate Bancsystem (NASDAQ:FIBK) and Bank of the Ozarks(NASDAQ:OZRK).
