Small cap stocks typically bounce back faster than other investments
in an expanding economy. It is a consistent historical trend —
it happened after the 1975 recession as well as those in 1980, 1982,
and 1990. And it's happening again: Since 2002, small cap stocks in
the Russell 2000 Index have gained 140%, double the 70% gain for the
large cap Dow Jones Industrial Average.
And when you want
to invest in high-growth small cap stocks, there's only one place to
turn: The Oberweis Report.
Editor Jim Oberweis's
model portfolio was up a mind-boggling 95% in 2003, and has
averaged 19.1% a year compared to 8.8% for the overall
market! And for The Oberweis Report,
this isn’t out of the ordinary. Just look at these consistent
gains: If you had invested just $10,000 on September 27, 1976 (the first
date the newsletter was published) and followed The Oberweis
Report's recommendations, you could have cashed your $10,000
portfolio in December 2007 for $7.4 million!
For more than 30 years, The Oberweis Report
has specialized in identifying the small companies that combine the
best in both rapid growth and value investing. Jim and his team identify
extraordinarily high growth companies that can meet our tough investment
standards. Just look at some of their recent successes (as of 12/31/2007):
Central European Distribution -- up 4,437%!
ValueClick -- up 597%!
Carrizo Oil & Gas -- up 685%!
Focus Media Holding -- up 460%!
aQuantive -- gained 854%!
Let Jim and his team do the research. Start profiting from their growth
stock investing expertise now! Had you invested just $5,000 in the
Oberweis Model Portfolio back in 1976, your portfolio would now be worth
a whopping $3.7 million.
The Oberweis Report Model Portfolio was on the rise again in 2006, up
22.9%. The compound growth rate of the Oberweis Report Model Portfolio
is 23% since inception versus the single digits for the broader markets.
When you think about it, only small caps have the potential to generate
the big, quick gains that can help you build legacy-size wealth in a
hurry ... especially if setbacks from the crash of 2000 have delayed
achievement of your financial goals.
If you want to beat the S&P 500, you obviously can't do it by investing
in S&P 500 companies. As a recent article in Forbes observes, "As
an investment style, small-cap growth traditionally leads the market
as the economy and stock market recover from recession."
The numbers certainly bear that out... For the four years ending December
31, 2007, $100,000 invested in the Russell 2000 doubled to
$200,000. During that same period, $100,000 invested in the S&P
500 Index grew to just 167,000. Small caps are continuing to
outperform the market over the long-run.
How does this happen? It's relatively easy for a company with $20 million
earnings to reach the $30 million mark - and grow earnings 50% in a
year. When investors finally take notice of that kind of growth, they
start buying ... which in turn drives up the share price.
But what most brokers conveniently forget to tell you is this: if a
$1 billion company increases earnings by $10 million, that's only growth
of 1% ... even $100 million in added revenues is only 10% growth ...
and it's unlikely to boost the share price even a dime.
That's why Jim Oberweis only buys small caps with 30%
or higher growth in annual sales, pretax income,
and earnings per share.
No one explains Jim Oberweis's success in picking winning small cap
stocks better than Jim himself: "We buy profitable companies in
the early stages of earnings acceleration to capture gains in earnings
per share ... and an expansion of price/earnings multiples ... as investors
catch on to a company's growth and become willing to pay more for it."
