NEW YORK, Dec. 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Sidoti & Co., LLC

Sidoti & Co., LLC ( will host its third Micro-Cap Conference on January 10, 2011 at New York City's Grand Hyatt Hotel.  These events are a key part of Sidoti's "mission of enlightenment" — in other words, to make even the most stubborn institutional investor admit that the micro-cap sector is worth keen scrutiny.  The conference will place in front of a savvy audience the best that the micro-cap sector has to offer, in terms of intriguing stories, astute managements, and prospects for significant success.  

Says Peter Sidoti, CEO of Sidoti & Company, LLC, "It has not been easy to allay investors' concerns about micro-cap liquidity and trading issues.  Yet we are making good progress in delivering the message that many micro-cap stocks have superior fundamentals and/or unique growth catalysts."  Mr. Sidoti's faith is bolstered by the feedback his firm's micro-cap conferences garner, and speedy sign-up of presenters and attendees alike for the upcoming event.  

The Sidoti Micro-Cap Conferences are getting bigger and better, reflecting their collaborative and informative nature.  The firm's first such conference last January attracted 50 presenters; that number is considerably larger for the January 10, 2011 event.  Just as encouraging is the swelling audience.  Sidoti Micro-Cap Conferences are now "must-attends" for most of the largest institutional investors, who realize that the micro-cap sector contains many hidden gems and also appreciate an opportunity for one-on-one meetings with many of the management teams.  Indeed, the January 10 conference will be one of the largest gatherings of institutional money managers and management teams focused on the sub-$250 million market cap sector ever held.  Like all Sidoti conferences, it will be well-organized, no-nonsense, and rife with opportunities for investors to glean valuable information and to network.  

Clearly, Sidoti & Co., LLC is the firm best-suited to enlighten the investment community about the merits of micro-cap equities.  Sidoti is by far the largest independent provider of institutional-quality research dedicated to the small-cap sector.  Nearly 60 Sidoti analysts cover more than 500 names in this arena, and a 35-person sales team is dedicated to distributing the research product.  Convinced it was smart to add micro-cap research, Sidoti mounted a swift and intense foray into the sector in early 2010, hiring five analysts to concentrate solely on this area.  Sidoti expects its micro-cap coverage to exceed 100 names by the January 10 conference.

For its conferences, Sidoti only seeks presenters that have sound fundamentals and intriguing stories, show fast growth and profitability, or otherwise hold great promise.  The January 10 event will feature some companies that came up with new and unusual ways of making money, as well as others that figured out a profitable formula and stuck with it.  All presenters, however, are completely off investors' radar screen.  Those companies will gain a priceless opportunity to boost their visibility.  Sidoti's Micro-Cap Conference is their chance to declare to a savvy group of institutional investors what makes them tick, why they are different, and what makes them a worthy investment.  Sidoti & Co. is confident that presenters and investors alike will consider the January 10, 2011 Micro-Cap Conference well worth their precious time.
