The Small Cap Recovery

Jay Pluimer, AIF® CIMA® Thursday, 03 December 2020

Small caps, which are public companies with market capitalizations under $2 billion, are up 23% in October and November due to a combination of three factors.

Small cap companies, which are public companies with market capitalizations under $2 billion - and as low as $300 million - make up a large portion of the U.S. stock market. The Russell 2000, which is the primary benchmark for small cap companies, is showing a strong recovery in Q4. The Russell is up 23% in October and November, as opposed to the S&P 500, which is up 8.5% thus far in Q4. Why the difference? In this episode, Jay Pluimer explains the three factors driving the uptick in small cap stocks in the current environment.
