After the Perfect Storm in US Smaller-Cap Stocks

SMID-Caps: To Know Them Is to Love Them

by Bruce Aronow, James MacGregor

It’s an opportunity born of neglect. Small-cap stocks have historically been the star performers of equities, handily outpacing large-cap stocks. And because they can get lost so easily in the grand sweep of the markets, small companies are often misunderstood and mispriced. That makes them great sources of alpha potential, especially for investors who take the time to get to know them well.
