Microcap stocks are an under-covered segment of the market. That also means that they offer some of the very best investment opportunities. It’s where Peter Lynch and Warren Buffett would go fishing if they only could. Alas, the size of their portfolios precludes them from doing just that. One I like is Lakeland Industries, Inc. (LAKE), highlights Nicholas Vardy, editor of Microcap Moonshots.
The tech-heavy Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) has continued to grind higher, notching fresh all-time peaks recently. Yet an ominous divergence has emerged as the underlying index scales new heights.

But each disruption also set off financial manias where average investors lost their shirts. This presentation will equip you with a historical perspective that will help you falling in to the same trap.
