What are small-cap companies, and why should you be watching them?


To understand small-caps, we need to look at what mid- and large-caps are. Mid-cap companies are those with a market capitalization of between $2 billion and $10 billion. Large-cap companies fall into the group of $10 billion and more. Small-caps are naturally the smallest, with market capitalization between $300 million and $2 billion.

A common misconception about small-cap companies is that they have just been founded or are still very small. The truth is that many of them have been on the market for years and have continuously proven their qualities- both product-wise and financially.


Their size might actually be attractive to potential investors. As they are smaller, their stock prices have a proportionally bigger chance to grow compared to large-scale enterprises. One should bear in mind though that with higher opportunities to grow, the risk and volatility also rises.
