Small Caps, Big Value

Henry Jackson of Banneker Capital Management relies on the strength of undervalued small firms

booming automated optical inspection industry could set growth on a 25% upward trajectory in 2004, pushing the company’s stock price to around $22.

Finally, Jackson thinks Laureate Education Inc.’s (Nasdaq: LAUR) business plan, which offers Internet degree programs backed by accredited universities, is on target for growth, particularly in Latin America. He sees an average profit increase of 20% or more next year and targets the stock to hit $44 in the next 12 months.
