25 Small-Cap Stocks to Buy

Investment bank Goldman Sachs (GS) recently whipped out a list of 25 small-cap stocks it likes right now, leaning heavily toward consumer plays and tech stocks.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

“Goldman strategist David Kostin identified 25 small-cap stocks (companies with market capitalizations of less than $4 billion) that could offer at least a 25% upside to the Goldman price target over the next 12 months.”
