Today's 5 Best Small Caps

|Includes: Biglari Holdings Inc. (BH-OLD), GPN, JACK, MEAS, SONC

Today I used Barchart to find the stocks in the S&P 600 Small Cap Index with the best technical indicators and charts. First I sorted the Index for stock having the most frequent new highs in the last month, then eliminated those that weren't a Trend Spotter buy or didn't have positive gains in the last week and month. Then I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts.

Today's list includes Biglari Holdings (NYSE:BH), Heartland Payment Systems (HPY), Sonic Corp (NASDAQ:SONC), Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ:MEAS) andJack in the Box (NASDAQ:JACK):
