Sniffing out a pick from Cabot Small-Cap Confidential

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, October 29, 2009

It seems like the folks at Cabot Heritage have been getting a lot of attention for the success of their China-focused newsletter lately, which has apparently led a lot of my readers to take some interest in them … which, in turn, means that when they spit out a wee teaser in one of their free email blasts, I get lots of questions about it.

So … not to spoil the surprise, but that’s the situation today. A recent issue of the free market letter from Cabot teased a stock that ran up quickly in October and then fell back, and the folks at Cabot Small-Cap Confidential think now’s a good opportunity to be buying more. Just to be clear, this is not the China letter that has done so well for Cabot in recent years, this is a letter that, you’ll be unsurprised to hear, looks for little-known small cap names — the editor, Tom Garrity, has recently said that he’s been focusing on technology, health care, and alternative energy ideas, and the stock that was teased for this letter just a week or two ago, our little friend the femtocell maker, was indeed in “technology.”
