Top Five Small-Cap Stocks


Rated a buy since February 2006, Multi-Color Corp. (LABL) supplies decorative label solutions and packaging services to consumer product and food and beverage companies, retailers and container manufacturers. It displays significantly increased net operating cash flow and notable stock price appreciation with good potential for further growth. The market expects EPS growth in Multi-Color's fiscal 2007.

These strengths outweigh the company's subpar net income growth.


Waste Industries USA (WWIN) provides solid waste collection, transfer, disposal and recycling services to commercial, industrial and residential customer locations in six states in the Southeast. It demonstrates improved operating margins due to company-wide pricing initiatives, higher productivity gains and increased internalization of waste into its landfills. The company also completed recent acquisitions in South Carolina and Georgia that will boost hauling revenues and strengthen its routes in desired markets.

Since the solid waste industry is very competitive and requires considerable labor and capital resources, and is subject to extensive federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations, any changes in the economic, legal and regulatory environment could have an unfavorable impact on its future financial performance.


Rated a buy since December 2005, American Software (AMSWA) develops, markets and offers support of software used in enterprise management and collaborative supply chain solutions. The company has displayed impressive stock price appreciation, a pattern of positive EPS growth over the past 12 months and no debt.

Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.


Cherokee (CHKE) markets, licenses and manages brand names and related trademarks. It has been rated a buy since May 2005.

The company's strengths include notable stock price appreciation, net income growth that has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and its industry, and improved return on equity. While no company is perfect, it does not currently show any significant weaknesses likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.
