The 5 Best Small Cap Stocks

|Includes:CMTL, HAYN, SXC, TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (THS), WST

When I say the BEST I'm speaking in current momentum terms. Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 600 Small Cap Index stocks for new high frequency, then eliminated those that did not have positive momentum for both the last week and month.

Today's list includes Treehouse Foods (NYSE:THS), West Pharmaceutical Services (NYSE:WST), Haynes International (NASDAQ:HAYN), Comtech Telecommunications (NASDAQ:CMTL), and Suncoke Energy (NYSE:SXC):
