Raising money has been good for the stock prices of the companies on our list today

SmallCapPower | September 26, 2016: When a company goes to the market to raise capital they are looking for funding to exploit growth opportunities that they have found but don’t have the cash flow on hand to capitalize on. One problem about going to the market is, however, you have to have people willing to buy your stock.

For that reason the companies on our list today were able to raise over $363 million, which resulted in the expansion of their market value by almost 100% on average.
