Sun Hydraulics (SNHY)
A supplier of hydraulic valves used in the U.S., Europe and Asia, Sun Hydraulics (No. 30), is an exceptionally well-run company that should rebound fast when the economy recovers. With the luxury of little debt and a strong balance sheet, Sun management has been able to avoid layoffs and is investing in employee training and more efficient equipment.

"This company is building for the long term," says Bob Becker, head of research at Keeley Funds. He sees the stock as a well-discounted pick.
