While accurately predicting the direction the consumer goods market is headed may take nothing less than a crystal ball, a smart investor can mitigate their risks by finding well-positioned, well-run companies and focusing their investments there. The Small-Cap Stars system helps identify just such companies by looking at past small-cap consumer goods companies that offered big returns, creating a profile of those companies by plugging dozens of specific fundamental metrics into a complex statistical regression, and then identifying which companies in the current market most resemble those previous success stories prior to their big gains.
