Tasked with choosing five stocks for Australia Day I first considered writing about blue-chip “mum and dad stocks” that millions of Australians own. Then, travel and leisure stocks that are benefiting from an inbound tourism boom that is just starting.
However, I settled on small- and mid-cap Australian industrial companies that are taking on the world and winning. Why? Because backing the underdog is as
Australian as its gets, and small caps that have a genuine, expanding international footprint are precious.
