2022 Has Been Rough for Small-Cap Stocks, But That's Likely to Change Soon

·3 min read

Small-cap stocks are generally companies with market caps between $300 million and $2 billion -- which may not seem that small, but when you think about the number of companies worth hundreds of billions (and even trillions), you see why these companies are considered the small players in the stock market. As of August 16, the Russell 2000 is down over 11.5% YTD, while the S&P 500 is down just over 10%.
