Topic: Finding High-Growth Small-Cap Stocks All Around the World
Speaker: Jim Oberweis, CFA, President, Oberweis Asset Management
Jim Oberweis, president of Oberweis Asset Management, will present a global perspective on small-cap growth investing. For nearly 20 years, Oberweis and his team have scoured the globe in pursuit of undervalued and misunderstood growth stocks at the inflection point of change. Oberweis’ firm invests around the world in high-growth small-cap stocks, with particular emphasis in the U.S. and China. Rooted in behavioral finance, Oberweis’ process seeks to take advantage of the human tendency to underestimate the power of change. Oberweis’ team applies an eight-step process known as the Oberweis Octagon to identify super growth stocks with parabolic growth potential, often stemming from innovative products, but also from evolving markets, niche dominance and changing regulations. Oberweis will give an overview on his current outlook and will share some of his favorite small-cap stocks to buy now.
