By Ironwood Investment Management The Ironwood SMID Cap Value portfolio had a strong February. The strategy advanced 6% for the month. The strategy’s materials and processing, producer durables, utility and energy stocks drove the strong performance. Within those sectors some of the better performing stocks were Platform Specialty Products (PAH), Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO), Weatherford International (WFT), Xylem (XYL), Zynga (ZNGA) and Dynegy (DYN).
