From Dana Lyons: Despite worries about rally participation, the micro-cap segment of the market is hitting all-time highs.
From Chris Kimble: Small cap stocks tend to offer a bit more risk and reward. That equates to higher beta, which in turn tends to mean stronger returns when the broader market is healthy, and weaker returns when the broader market is in the doldrums.
It’s not unusual for a particular segment to have a hot streak, but what’s been happening in the micro-cap space is remarkable by almost any standard.
From Chris Kimble: So far this year, Small & Micro Cap ETF’s are lagging the S&P 500. Over the past month the opposite is taking place, as small and micro caps have been stronger.
One of the biggest stories in the market last year was the tear that Small-Cap U.S. equities went on following the election of Donald Trump as president.
