RISING SMALL CAPS

Do you ever wish you could have discovered and purchased shares of Coca-Cola when it traded for less than $1 in the early 1980s? Finding small cap companies with great long-term growth potential can provide decades of above-market returns. While the high potential small cap companies on this list pay a dividend, many payments are modest to allow the company to continue reinvesting to fuel future growth. If you have a long investment horizon and are looking to significantly grow your nest egg, this list could be for you.
