Five all-new small to mid-cap stocks for 2018

VASCO Data Security International (VDSI)

VASCO is a cybersecurity company, a pioneer in both the areas of thumbprint recognition and two-factor authentication. It’s two-factor authentication protocol is used by Apple’s App store and integrated with Salesforce.com. With bona fides like that, you might well wonder why this is a $500 million company and not a multi-billion-dollar company. Part of the reason is that oldest of problems: it’s losing money. But though VASCO lost $0.65 per share in the past quarter, it has positive operating income and its revenue is growing at 14% annually.
