Top Small Cap Stocks

The top 10 stocks for both the long and the short position were included in the 14 day forecast from (7/10/15) that was part of the Small Cap Stocks to Buy package.

Exellixis Inc. (EXEL), a US based biopharmaceutical company that develops and sells small molecule therapies for the treatment of cancer, saw its share soar on July 20th by more than 50% following news of the release of positive phase 3 trial data from a test of its cancer drug cabozantinib (Cometriq) against everolimus (Afinitor), which shows the former significantly improved patients’ chances of survival or prevented their cancer from worsening compared to the latter.

For the short position, CLF offered the largest returns to investors who shorted the stock during the predicted time period with a negative return of 24.77%. Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (CLF), a mining and natural resources company, produces iron ore and metallurgical coal. Shares of CLF plunged to a 12-year low on July 22nd after BHP Billiton (BHP) said that iron-ore production would increase during its fiscal 2016 year –just what the market for iron ore does not need.

The average returns for the long and short positions were 4.95% and 6.74%, both of which easily beat the S&P 500 average return of 1.38% during the same time period.
