BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- National Presto Industries (NPK - Get Report) has been transformed from an ugly duckling into a stock-market swan. The maker of small cooking appliances, a longtime "Under the Radar" favorite, is now being courted by individual and institutional investors.TheStreet.com recommended National Presto on July 9 and again Dec. 9. It delivered 68% and 36% gains since those articles, besting the Russell 2000, a small-cap barometer. The investment criteria: a deceptively large yield (due to special annual dividends unaccounted for in stock screeners), impressive growth rates and a peer-relative discount.
