<< Read Part I: 10 Hot Small Caps Primed For A Winning Streak

Small cap stocks are looking very attractive right now. Year-to-date the Russell 2000 small-cap index is up over 8%. This is versus the S&P 500 which is up only 1.48%. “I just think there’s a general sentiment that is really strong, and it’s hard to turn the sentiment around, especially if we get a good Q2 reporting season which we’re looking for,” Jefferies analyst Steven DeSanctis said recently.
