INVESTING FOR GROWTH


The Small-Cap 50

To select the best-performing companies in the Standard & Poor's SmallCap
600 index, we first ranked all the stocks in the index by one- and three-
year stock market performance (as of Feb. 15). We then added the two rank-
ings and came up with our list. When companies have the same total score,
we give them equal ranking.
