    Small-cap stocks are getting hammered — three experts debate what to do next

    Momentum Investors Need to Experience Some Pain

    The Reflex, as 1980s new wave and synth-pop band Duran Duran sang, is a door to finding treasure in the dark. Anyone who was long the market, or particularly momentum stocks, would have profited hugely from this dictum on Tuesday. Momentum itself, which is a style of investing that involves buying stocks that are trending higher and shedding losers, was a prime beneficiary of the broad rebound. MSCI’s US Momentum index, which had lost 10 percent in only seven trading days, clawed back more than a third of its losses.

    Why Sell-Off in Small Stocks Could Herald Big Trouble Ahead

    An outsize retreat in small and mid-cap stocks over recent weeks could be a possible sign of an upcoming deeper market correction, according to major asset managers, including London & Capital and JPMorgan Asset Management. Both in the U.S. and Europe, declines in small-cap stock indexes have been more pronounced than for blue-chip equivalents since the end of August. Back in 2007, the small-cap Russell 2000 Index peaked three months ahead of the large-cap index, giving some investors ample time to prepare for the nearly 60 percent stock market plunge that followed during the financial crisis.

    There were warning signs a big market sell-off was coming and investors believe there's more to go

    Investors may have been surprised by the steepness of Wednesday's stock market sell off, but the market has been sending clues of a pending pull back. The sell-off could continue into the earnings season, which begins Friday, but some analysts expect a positive end to the year, as the market often gains after mid-term elections. The biggest worries for stocks are rising interest rates and the potential impact of trade wars and tariffs on corporate profits and the global economy.

    Growth stocks like Amazon are getting slammed during this October rout, but value names see buyers

    Strategists credit the trend on rising interest rates, as the 10-year Treasury note yield this past week reached a high of 3.26 percent. The Dow was down 831 points, or 3.1 percent, as investors also sold off more cyclical names like Caterpillar and Boeing. Investors dumped technology and other growth stock winners Wednesday in favor of defensive and value names, a trend that has accelerated as interest rates rise.

    JPMorgan Says Dumping Small Stocks at Recessions a Huge Mistake

    While U.S. small-cap and midcap equities have historically underperformed large caps during recession-linked downturns, the gap pales in comparison with smaller stocks’ superior returns over a full economic cycle, according to a note from JPMorgan Chase & Co. strategists led by Eduardo Lecubarri. During the past five recessions, the Russell 2000’s average loss from peak to trough is 39.2 percent, compared with 34 percent for the S&P 500, according to JPMorgan’s calculations. “Avoiding SMid in hopes of timing a recession is a money-losing strategy,” the strategists wrote.

    Star Managers Giving Gains Back in Hottest Area of Stock Market

    The $5.4 billion Brown Capital Management Small Company Fund and the $1.5 billion Delaware SMID Cap Growth Fund, both of which beat 97 percent of their peers over past five years, sank 6.6 percent last week for their worst performance since January 2016. The $2.3 billion Alger Small Cap Focus Fund dropped 7 percent after beating its benchmark at an annualized rate of almost 10 percentage points in the past three years. All the three funds were invested in small-cap and growth stocks, groups that led the market gains for the year before buckling.

    Consider the Russell 2000 Index of small caps, which a month ago was on pace for its third consecutive double-digit year despite the fact that a third of its members don’t make any money. Drill down more and you can see how eight rate hikes from the Federal Reserve have altered the way investors view stocks. A basket of companies with stronger balance sheets compiled by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is up 13 percent since December, compared with 7.5 percent for the weaker group.

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.
