Calavo Growers Inc. (NASDAQ: CVGW) is one company many investors do not know, and it trades just over 100,000 shares per day.

Its stock even hit a new high this week, up 2.4% over the past week and up over 4% in the past month, ahead of Wednesday’s gains.
Shares of Calavo Growers were up 4.5% at $58.09. The consensus analyst price target is $60.67, and the 52-week trading range is $37.50 to $58.12. The company has a market cap of $1 billion.
Neos Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: NEOS) is a small-cap stock and a recent IPO, and it is focused on treating ADHD. Still, one has to wonder, because it hit a post-IPO high on Wednesday. It recently was given big upside by its analysts. Because it only recently became a public company, no color is being added. Ahead of Wednesday, its stock was up over 6.5% in the past week and up almost 20% in the past month.
Shares were last seen up 3.5% at $24.70 on Wednesday, in a post-IPO trading range of $17.10 to $25.17. The company has a total market cap of $358 million. This was a mere 4.8 million share IPO at $15.00 per share.
