Tickers Mentioned:

As we round out the year it’s time to take “stock” of our collective stock portfolios and tracking projects and see how they performed on the year. The largest, most in-depth of our projects has been the Small Cap Stars project, wherein our analytical team indexed the market's strongest small cap plays, based on sector-specific criteria.

The sectors across the board performed well, but in each sector there were some truly outstanding plays worth highlighting. As we close out 2013, here are the top plays from each sector in the Small Cap Stars project:
