So my two tranches have quite a few stocks with some very good prospects, then a few "dogs" that are just too cheap (aka Cigar Butts). With ten stocks all so cheap, I will have some flops but should have a reasonable chance at some out sized gains.

This tranche has been a rollercoaster. With these volatile stocks, when you buy can make a huge difference. If I had bought a month later, I'd have gains in excess of 20%. ONE has sold off a lot lately. They looked to be on their way to a double. They did have an announcement this evening (
|Higher One Holdings, Inc. Announces Sale of its Disbursements Business|
), it is difficult for me to tell if this is good news. The market basically has yawned. PERI has been the hot stock of late with purchase of Undertone (Perion Acquires Undertone).
This analyst thinks the PERI deal was great and has the stock poised to go past $6 (Analyst: Perion Shares More Compelling Following 'Shocking' Deal).

Obviously I like all five names. We'll see how it pans out a year from now. It is funny, even a relatively small investor like me has to be thoughtful (using limit orders) in buying these micro caps.
