Size matters - but money matters more. And unless you've taken a microscope to this market you probably stepped right over the one class of stock that's quietly beating the S&P.
We’re talking small cap and it's time to take a closer look at the tiny tickers that are topping the tape.
While the Big Board racked up nothing but big losses over the last 6 months the Russell 2000 - an index of companies that average a mere $1 billion in market cap - is up a whopping 6%!
And one lesser name that's been leading the way is Digi International.
With a grand total of 500 employees this little networking company turns outdated information systems such as checkout counters, factory floors, and even traffic lights into 100% wireless wonders, explains Pete Najarian.
It’s a small Minnesota based company with a great balance sheet, Najarian adds. They have little debt and a great cash position.
And insiders are all getting into this stock which is why it could be a smart buy right now, Najarian concludes.
