Best Small Cap Stocks For 2019

The Q4 earnings report for small cap Take ‘N’ Bake pizza chain stock Papa Murphy’s Holdings (NASDAQ: FRSH) is scheduled for after the market closes on Wednesday (March 15th). In February, our Under the Radar Movers newsletter suggested shorting the stock by saying:

“For the longest time, Papa Murphy’s Holdings managed to make its way sideways in a pretty narrow trading range. As of today though, a support line at $4.16 has been broken, and a high-volume pullback that’s been developing since late last week has been unleashed. There’s not a lot left to prop the stock up, and there’s plenty of downside room to keep rolling.”

“What you can’t see on the chart is that, further back, FRSH had already developed a pretty significant long-term downtrend. We’re just trying to capture a brief leg of that bigger-picture pullback.”

Initially, investors seemed concerned about further trade tensions between the U.S. and China, but upon further reflection, they appeared to draw comfort from considerable fundamental strength from key sectors of the industrial economy.
