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.
