Big Things Can Start Small

From 1926 to 2012, small-cap stocks generated an average annualized return of 11.9% vs. 9.8% for large-cap stocks.[1] Many of the largest corporations in the world started out with low-priced stocks that eventually provided early investors asustained longer-term return. Small-cap companies often start with a small market share in niche and faster-growing markets, giving them room to grow relative to their large-cap counterparts, although often with an accompanying higher level of risk. Additionally, they can have a greater potential for margin expansion since they generally operate well below peak levels in early stages – and they can benefit significantly from economies of scale.[2] This motif focuses on small-cap companies with demonstrated strong earnings growth and positive cash flows over the past five years.
