Sparks Fly for These Small-Caps

There's no better way to dig up small-cap ideas than by going to a conference, and few of these are better than the Roth Conference for great small-cap growth stories. I made the quick drive down to Orange County for three days of nonstop presentations, 1x1s and informal discussion sessions. Since I have already christened LD Micro as the "Woodstock" of small-cap conferences, I will have to christen the Roth Conference as the "Coachella" in honor of its SoCal roots. The best description of the conference is that line from the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis song Thrift Shop, since they were the entertainment last night at the conference: "This is [redacted] awesome!"
