Today's 5 Best Small Caps

|Includes: BOFI, BYD, CoreSite Realty Corporation (COR), DGII, UVE

Today I used Barchart to find what I think are the 5 best small cap technical buys. I sorted the S&P 600 Small Cap Index stocks first for technical buy signals of 80% or better and then for a Weighted Alpha of 50.00+ or more.

The 5 stocks that made the cut with the highest technical buy signals were Coresite Realty (NYSE:COR), Universal Insurance Holdings (NYSEMKT:UVE), BOFI Holdings (NASDAQ:BOFI), Digi International (NASDAQ:DGII), Boyd Gaming (NYSE:BYD).
