    [$$] It’s Not All Tech. Small Stocks Are Powering the Market Higher.

    Technology giants get most of the credit for driving this year’s stock-market gains, but the quiet strength of smaller companies is a reason to keep betting on U.S. stocks. Signs of stock-market breadth are everywhere, investors and analysts say: Smaller-company stocks have climbed more than their larger counterparts this year. When all the companies in the S&P 500 are assigned an equal weighting, the index is still trading near records.

    Small caps could fall victim to trade wars, but one stock may weather the storm, strategist says

    Trade wars have already dinged multinationals, but tensions could make waves in an unexpected corner of the market.

    Small Stocks Hang On to Big Gains, for Now

    Soaring profits at smaller publicly traded companies are driving the Russell 2000 to new records as investors bet U.S. economic strength will boost smaller companies while trade frictions hit their multinational counterparts. The sweeping tax cut passed last year has driven corporate profits up across the country, especially at small businesses that get most of their sales from within the U.S. A resurgence in economic growth and consumer spending has brightened prospects for the stock market’s smaller cohorts, analysts say, while the shadow of a trade war has damped the returns of big, multinational stocks such as industrial manufacturers.
