Your Best Small and Midcap Stock Ideas?



May 14, 2011 – Comments (13)

I am looking for new ideas for stocks to put in my watchlist.  I am looking for companies that have big potential and I am not worried about their current valuation.  In the restaurant field I like Chipotle Mexigan Grill and Buffalo Wild Wings and PF Chang's China Bistro.  In retail I like Fossil and Joseph S Bank.  In technology I like the 3D printing industry with TDSC and SSYS.  I also am a big fan of the laser industry with IIVI, RSTI, IPGP, NEWP, and COHR.  Faro Technologies, Clean Energy Fuels, Tower Group Insurance and First Cash Financial are also on my list.  A123 systems makes lithium ion batteries and that has huge potential in the long run.  They are the technology leader in this field and they just got a new patent approved for a better technology. Any of the Bakken oil shale companies are on my list including OAS, CLR, WLL, EOG, SSN, KOG, and NOG.  If you have any great ideas I would love to hear from you(ALSTRY not included).

I'd offer the items on my watch list but I'm not sure any of them are good buys right now and I haven't figured out what is a good buy.  My most recent buy was PG primarily on the rationale that it pays good dividends and I can conserve value.

I'll watch this one and see what people say in the hope of having something worthwhile identified.

I don't own it yet but I follow this guy's ideas and he make's a compelling case. 

Petrobank and/or Petrobakken...the former is the parent company of Petrobakken and both trade on the pink sheets here in the US. 

More here for a pitch.

My best idea remains ATP Oil and Gas. I believe the risk has been declining for this play over the past few months. 

This weekend's news about the green light for leases in the Gulf should continue to assist.

LPHI, CNU, ACAS and PETS are some of my favorites, I own them in my real portfolio.

I own these, but not saying you should. They are mostly longer term investments.

I have been doing mostly shorter term trading since the first of the year, but am now moving into longer term. All have good upside potential. 

Buying at the right price is the key.





JMO and worth exactly what I am charging for it.

Yes, thanks Porte. I have always enjoyed reading his posts...aka Devon Shire. 

It sounds like he has tempered his bullishness on ATP recently due to the permitting nonsense.

How low do you guys think oil could go if the dollar keeps getting stronger?  I am trying to decide whether I should buy back into the oil shale stocks now or wait.

I mentioned DNN in a blog post - I think that all small cap uranium miners are promising here (risky, though). 

Given RAH and DF, I am constructive on my long suffering CQB position, too.
