© Reuters. 3 Under the Radar Small-Cap Stocks to Buy in December

Despite growing fears around the new COVID-19 omicron variant, fundamentally solid small-cap stocks are expected to benefit from robust macroeconomic growth and an anticipated mild impact from proposed corporate tax policy changes. So, we think it could be wise to bet on quality small-cap stocks Genesco (NYSE:GCO), Huttig Building Products (HBP), and Friedman Industries (FRD).

Also, record-high inflation data for October, reported last month, did little to improve market sentiment.

However, initial reports suggest that the fears related to the omicron coronavirus variant may have been exaggerated; the variant has so far been found to cause mild illness. Dr. Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, said, “Currently, there is no reason for panicking, as we don’t see severely ill patients.” Also, JP Morgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) expects the S&P 500 to surge beyond 5,000 in the first half of 2022.

(GCO), Huttig Building Products, Inc. (HBP), and Friedman Industries, Incorporated (FRD) may not be making headlines but have significant growth potential. So, we think it could be wise to scoop up their shares now.
