Time for some new blood: Five all new small-cap stock picks

Greenhill & Company (GHL)

Greenhill is an investment bank, and something of a power hitter in the world of mergers and acquisitions despite its modest, $875 million market cap. Among other large deals, Greenhill arranged the 2008 merger of Delta and Northwest Air Lines, a deal valued at $17 billion. Greenhill has been in investment and expansion mode recently, and by that, I mean they are investing in personnel, adding to their headcount and, if whispers are to be believed, poaching a few M&A rock stars from other firms. EPS is likely to contract in the short term as a result of the spending, but the plan is bearing fruit: revenue jumped by more than 28% in 2016.
