Separating Small-Caps by Dividends and Growth

NEW YORK (BestCredit) -- When investors are looking to enter into the small-cap space, the primary consideration is usually an enhanced potential for growth relative to large-cap counterparts in a similar industry.  

There is certainly nothing wrong with this strategy but it should be remembered that there are small-cap stocks that offer substantial dividends from companies with stable payout histories, as well.  Here, we will look at three stock choices (one poised for growth, two offering elevated dividend payouts) for investors looking in areas other than the commonly traded blue-chips.

A Small-Cap for Growth

On the growth side, we look at SoupMan (SOUP), a stock that offers sustainable value, a diversified marketing strategy, and a growing product line.  The stock is trading at the lower end of its yearly range, and recent media moves capitalizing on Super Bowl advertising has helped to bring added attention to the company's expanding presence in casino restaurants and supermarket outlets.   

With a current market cap of $19.4 million, the company offers an attractive valuation and the potential for massive growth for long-term investors that are able to withstand market volatility.  The best arguments for potential in the stock can be seen in added sales numbers that are likely to come as a result of new strategic relationships with CCA Foods (CAW), Whole Foods (WFM), and Wegman's.  These deals will allow SoupMan to improve its positioning in a broad range of consumer outlets -- something that is not seen in most of SoupMan's industry counterparts.
