The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.NEW YORK ( Zenpenny) -- Over the past few months I have mentioned a number of names that I thought would present opportunity for profit to investors over an intermediate to long-term time horizon. What I've rarely done is to pass on opportunities in my favorite area for investment: micro- and small-cap stocks. I go one step further in my research of these names and look for companies that are undergoing some type of distressed situation that forces old habits to disappear, being replaced by new ways of doing things that tends to bring out the value in a much more timely manner.
