A great investment opportunity doesn't have to come from a cutting-edge or undiscovered company - some of the best investments right now are global brand names right on the cusp of profitable breakouts.
Today, we're looking at two well-known small-cap stocks with breakout potential that Wall Street is overlooking.
You see, small-cap stocks - those with market caps between $300 million and $2 billion - have a serious advantage over larger companies.
Small-cap stocks have significant growth potential that outpaces companies with larger capitalization.
In fact, according to investment consulting firm Ibbotson Associates, small-cap stocks have averaged better returns than large caps going back to 1927. That trend isn't going to change anytime soon, either.
One reason for that is Wall Street and the media tend to overlook small-cap stocks in favor of the larger companies with higher trading volumes. That means you can own excellent, profitable companies without paying a premium for the hype around them.
