I'm Looking for A Few Good U.S. Small Caps

Recs

December 22, 2011 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: RLI

I'm looking for U.S. smallcaps in boring industries that are generally overlooked by analysts but that are great (if non-spectacular) companies with long track records of reasonable success.

A prototypical company in this mold would be RLI Corp.  (RLI). 

If anyone has ideas, please post below.  Thanks!

MKL is always worth a look, although I would wait for a better entry price.

dumber,

 What do you think of STON, death industry is always boring :P

pays a solid dividend and can be seen as a monopoly in a way.

 

Also Scotts Miracle Grow. It's kind of getting away from small cap status though. 

 

MFI might be of interest

You might want to take a look at BBEP, great for income and can have a nice upside move now that a large shareholder (Quicksilver) finally sold out.

I know this is not a small cap but I like the list you have and follow almost all the companies you have picked but one I feel should be green thumbed at this time is LUK. I recently did it just today. 6.5 billion dollar market cap. Long history...... proven track record. You might be familiar with it.

I could have gave you some small cap stocks but don't feel comfortable recommending them. Personally I don't like the idea of an average investor taking a position in a company with a market cap of less than 1 billion. I myself try to avoid them.

Oh and I think LUK's return has been somewhere in the area of 40,000% return on your money since 1980.
