This trio of small-caps is on the rise after a tough few months.
What is most fascinating in this index-investing based world is the amount of variability and inefficiency that still exists.
It's the kind of action that makes the markets interesting in a New Year.
When there is real market turmoil, the smaller names usually are damaged more than their large-cap cousins.
Those names in the green are not what one might expect, including some specialty retailers from my double-net value portfolio.
It was not a great year for this value portfolio, with only 5 stocks in positive territory for the year.
From boots to sneakers and jackets to jeans, leading investment pros offer their retail choices for your portfolio.
Earnings season is here and it has already moved into high gear.
Corning and Big 5 Sporting Goods both had big news Tuesday. Here is what it means for the companies, and how to play them.
This mix of 20 deep-value names was outperforming a couple Russell indices three months back but is trailing them now.
Dick's Sporting Goods and Foot Locker are among the specialty retailers that bounced back after a butt-whooping last summer.

Fossil Group has done most of the heavy lifting among the small stocks in the portfolio, though there are other winners, too.
Specialty retail is indeed a tough area, but in classic form, markets have overly punished a number of them.

FOSL is up 92% since I launched this group, while HIBB is ahead 27%.
It is always important see how such value screens perform in times of market stress.
While I am not typically a fan of retail in general, I do like 'fifty-cent dollars' no matter how ugly they are.
One month in, 15 out of 20 names are in positive territory, with Fossil Group soaring 39%.
The 20 companies in this portfolio could be of interest to deep-value investors.
It's hard to get excited about Tuesday Morning despite its efforts to improve its results.
Sharp drops in Foot Locker and Dick's Sporting Goods after awful earnings reports may -- or may not -- have created a short-term play in Hibbett.
Some names should do well regardless of who becomes the next president.
