As we approach the end of the year, a lot of people spend time reviewing their portfolios — what worked and what didn’t.
And while looking back is good, it’s just as important to look ahead.
To that end, I have two top Russell 2000 stocks set to dominate in 2022.
The Russell 2000 has been stagnant for most of the year. There’s been little trading action, but lots of volatility.
Now, with the Federal Reserve moving to aggressively end its bond purchases, we should see a big move in the Russell 2000.
That’s because it’s made up of smaller-cap stocks. Small caps typically have less correlation with the broader market, and react less to inflationary pressure since they typically don’t carry as much revolving debt as large caps.
And with the Russell 2000 oversold, now is a great time to look for some bargains.
Top Russell 2000 Stocks for 2022
The first name I’m looking at is a manufacturing company and provider of electrical, safety and infrastructure solutions: Atkore Inc. (NYSE: ATKR).
The company has a one-year return of 173%, five-year earnings growth of 1,196%, and its earnings per share growth versus the previous year is 283%.
Not only is its past performance stellar, but the future looks especially bright for Atkore.
The infrastructure spending bill passed last month, bringing with it $1 trillion worth of investment into U.S..
But Atkore also operates outside of the United States. The company has imported holdings in Europe, where other big infrastructure spending bills are also in the works.
ATKR is set to see a lot of growth, especially over the next quarter.
I have a 12-week profit target of $125 per share, representing a 13.64% gain from its current price near $110 per share.
The second top Russell 2000 stock is a commercial real estate advisory firm offering products and services such as investment sales, debt and structured financing.

P.S. There’s a trifecta system that’s made it possible to win in all three market climates — with a 633% average return!
It’s the Triple Threat synergy that helped Chuck Hughes earn seven figures last year alone in all three market types.
Chuck’s about to explain how it let a small group of traders earn 330%… 274%… 251%… and even 105% on their entire stimulated brokerage account in just three months!
And how it helped him personally grow one of his accounts 142% on average every month in 15 months.
