Finally, we have Capstone. The microturbine maker saw its shares soar 12% last week. The move wasn't in anticipation of a blowout quarter this week; Capstone announced a new order earlier in the week to kick off the rally.
I singled out Capstone in my "5 Stocks Under $10" column four months ago, and shares have climbed 25% since then. Revenue is growing, gross margins are improving, and losses are narrowing. Capstone is finally expected to break even in the new fiscal year that began in April, and that's the easiest path to earning respect on Wall Street.
Cross those fingers, but know the fundamentals
Investors in these five stocks have a right to be excited. They are all improving their financial situations. They are worthy of the gains that the market rally has bestowed upon them over the past year.
I wouldn't be uncomfortable owning any of these companies. They're doing the right thing, regardless of Mr. Market's mood swings.
The expectations may be high, but these five stocks wouldn't have it any other way.
