What Financial Jitters? I'm Buying Lifelock

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- When I look at my individual holdings I get no jitters at all. I own about 100 different stocks spread out among four different portfolios. I also continue to find some great stocks using my Best Stocks Now app. Once my interest is piqued I check the stock chart to determine buy and sell points.

Well I just found another small-cap, U.S.-based stock out of the financial sector I like and added it to my aggressive growth accounts recently. The stock is Lifelock (LOCK - Get Report), headquartered in Tempe, Ariz.

Data from Best Stocks Now App

Lifelock is a company that we didn't need 10, maybe not even five years ago. But today it makes sense. LOCK provides proactive identity theft protection services for consumers and identity theft risk assessment as well as fraud protection.

The company went public in 2012 at $9 per share and today it's trading at $19. With current events in the world such as the Target (TGT) breach, this stock has the potential to go much further.

Performance

Data from Best Stocks Now App

LOCK's performance has been tremendous so far. Over the past 12 months Lifelock has returned106% to investors. It has the potential to go even higher as the stock just broke out again to new all-time highs.
