Best Small Cap Stocks

These small-cap stocks all have a market cap below $2 billion and are traded in the United States. They're ranked in order of biggest percentage gains year to date (YTD).

While these may be considered the "best" small-cap stocks because of their past performance, we don't recommend buying these stocks since they are so risky. Small-cap stocks, like the ones listed above, are not traded as frequently as well-known companies, so they are harder to sell if the price drops.

However, we do have a list of stocks to buy for mega profits in 2017…

One of the stocks is already up over 8% YTD largely due to the uncertainty and military aggression in Asia.

This company has billions in contracts with world governments to build defense systems. These contracts are likely to expand as the chaos increases.

Not only does it have multibillion-dollar contracts today, but the company is constantly innovating and developing new technology. After all, its current line of products is a far cry from the vacuum tube that allowed small appliances to be plugged directly into outlets. This allows the defense company to continue to grow in coming years.

Here's our top stock to buy, along with the massive profit opportunity, right now.
