Small caps have had a volatile week, which we can blame on the CPI inflation report (Tuesday) and subsequent move in interest rates. That all said, if you just woke up from a two-week nap you wouldn’t notice much at all at the small-cap index level. Meanwhile, EverQuote (EVER) is our newest addition and continues to look fantastic, notes Tyler Laundon, editor of Cabot Small-Cap Confidential.
TransMedics Group (TMDX) is a small-cap MedTech company addressing the unmet market need for more and healthier organs for transplantation, specifically in the heart, lung, and liver markets. It’s not a stock for the faint of heart (no pun intended). But the reward versus risk profile is very attractive, counsels Tyler Laundon, editor of Cabot Small-Cap Confidential.
Crocs (CROX) is a Colorado-based footwear company that was founded in 2002 and has two well-known brands, Crocs and HEYDUDE. Analyst projections are conservative. But Crocs could do a lot better. If it does, the stock could be off to the races, shares Tyler Laundon, editor of Cabot Small-Cap Confidential.
Varonis Systems (VRNS) jumped after a solid Q3 earnings report and the stock has since seen continued momentum. It’s time to buy this seller of security software that’s used to protect enterprise data, counsels Tyler Laundon, editor of Cabot Early Opportunities.
