Taking a Major Gamble with Microcap Stocks

Microcap StocksMicrocap stocks are companies with a market capitalization that is less than three hundred million dollars; though stocks that are less than fifty million are considered nano-cap. The level of fluctuation is what investors find attractive about smaller companies.  A small company can double in worth or go bankrupt in a short span of time; this turns the stock into a high risk gamble.  A portfolio builds stability through low risk stocks; it makes its money through smart investments in high risk stocks.  The largest gains (and losses) come from these small up and coming companies.

Using Microcap Stocks to Power a Portfolio

The wild fluctuation of price is what makes small companies appealing to investors; a great target for a day trader is microcap stocks that have reached a 52 week low, but have news of impending financial success.  The high risk microcap stock is not a stock that many people will hold onto for very long; this generally only occurs when a company has invented a new product and all signs point to the value to continue to skyrocket.  The larger well-known companies do not fluctuate nearly as much as smaller companies; the reason for this is because a few hundred million may only be a single percentage point to a multi-national conglomerate.

Diversity seems to be a constant piece of any stock market advice; this is because it is the most valuable of advice.  Horror stories of people losing their life savings in a single investment are commonplace.  Established Companies with a high market capitalization are the preferred low risk investment; these low risk investments are what is used to hedge the possible losses from the high risk investments.  Microcap stocks are a risky area of the stock market, due to the sheer volatility of their company’s worth.
