NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The market is showing some strength in September, and we're not even into third-quarter earnings season yet! And that means there is a lot to look forward to as we get ready for the next round of quarterly reports. Companies that top expectations tend to pop nicely after their numbers come out -- and if investors are already in a buying mood, all the better!
As a growth guy, I live for the four earnings seasons on Wall Street. They let me know which companies are posting growing sales and earnings and which stocks are falling behind. I never invest in a company that is not growing significantly -- and I don't fret about the latest market hiccup, consumer spending headline or other hang-ups. A company only succeeds by growing the bottom line, not making excuses.
To help you get your share this earnings season, here are five top small cap stocks October.
