100 High Performance Small Cap Stocks

By Hank Tucker, Antoine Gara and Eliza Haverstock

Ask just about any investor from Silicon Valley to Wall Street and they will tell you: We’re living in the age of the mega-corporation.

Zscaler shares surged 26% on Thursday. Splunk plunged 23%.

Both reported quarterly results late Wednesday and had very different-pandemic related stories to share with investors.

Zscaler, a security software vendor for the cloud, said revenue in the period ended October climbed 52% and the company raised its forecast for the year. Splunk, a provider of data analytics software, said revenue shrank 11% from a year earlier, missing estimates for a third straight period.

For Zscaler, momentum has picked up throughout the year as large enterprises seek ways to protect their increasingly disparate data and secure their networks now that employees are connecting from more places and devices. After Thursday’s rally, the stock is now up 298% for the year, the third-best performance among U.S. tech stocks behind only Zoom and Fastly.

Out on Wall Street, stocks are taking a breather from this month’s rally. Despite encouraging updates on a potential coronavirus vaccine, disappointing unemployment data and a spike in coronavirus cases have spooked investors.

Not helping investor sentiment, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that schools would return to remote learning to mitigate the virus’ spread.

“The market has really been in a celebratory mode since Election Day and rode through it again last week.
