Factors to Consider Before Investing in Small-Cap Stocks
It is good news for investors that small-cap stocks are less affected by the global economic and geopolitical conditions. They are, generally, domestically driven companies and stocks that do not come under the radar of the Fed and other regulatory bodies.
Therefore, small-cap stocks follow a high-reward low-risk profile. Additionally, according to Russell 2000, the index for small-cap companies, the small-cap stocks are currently undervalued and offer attractive value for investors to invest in them.
However, investors must also consider that small-cap stocks are risky investments. The small-cap companies are at the beginning of the growth curve and may or may not become successful. Therefore, investments in small-cap stocks hold strong chances of failing completely and are highly volatile.
