E Small Cap Stocks: Gainers And Losers In 2017

Looking for the next small cap winners, I used the "Momentum Value" ranking system offered by Portfolio123. The "Momentum Value" ranking system is quite complicated, and it is taking into account many factors like; Yield, price to book value, trailing P/E, price to sales, return on equity, sales growth, and relative strength. Back-testing over eighteen years has proved that this ranking system is advantageous.

The twenty top-ranked Russell 2000 companies according to the ranking system are shown in the table below.


The year 2017 has been good for investors in small cap stocks, but not as good as for investors in large cap stocks. The Russell 2000 index has appreciated 13.14%, besides approximately 1.33% in dividend yield. Since the economy is continuing to strengthen and the new companies tax reduction program could boost companies' earnings, I believe that small cap stocks will perform better in 2018.
