NEW YORK, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- With its First 2010 Micro Cap Conference scheduled for January 11, 2010, Sidoti & Company, Wall Street's largest, fastest-growing small cap equity research provider, is empowering investors with its three keys for targeting micro cap stocks, while also announcing that Knight Capital Group (Nasdaq: NITE) is bringing its small cap market leadership to the event as a co-sponsor.

First 2010 Micro Cap Conference

According to Peter T. Sidoti, CEO of Sidoti & Company, LLC, micro cap equities should offer the educated investor a wealth of opportunity in 2010 as the turbulent markets over the past year have produced excellent values. To fully capitalize on this opportunity, Mr. Sidoti believes that investors must re-double their focus on three key investing fundamentals: P/E Ratio, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Strength.

"Micro cap and small cap stocks have the unfair reputation as being 'high risk'. However to the knowledgeable investor, there are thousands of companies that meet or exceed their large cap brethren in terms of favorable P/E ratio, strong cash flow and low debt. The challenge, of course, is identifying those companies," remarked Mr. Sidoti. "Our First 2010 Micro Cap Conference and ongoing small cap research are designed to provide investors with unparalleled resources for taking advantage of what remains a largely untapped, yet potentially lucrative investing sector; and one which could see substantial gains in 2010."
