Paylocity (NASDAQ: PCTY) returned 29.8% in August, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, by smashing analyst earnings estimates, then riding the momentum in smaller stocks and growth stocks in the back half of the month. The company reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.46, which was well above the $0.28 forecast by analysts. Paylocity is in a great spot right now, and it is taking advantage of it.
