Our Deep Value Strategies
 
 

David Maley on the advantages, risks and misconceptions of investing in smaller-sized stocks


Investing in small/micro-cap stocks is more risky and more volatile than investing in large cap stocks. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which a portfolio invests may never be recognized by the broader market. Attempting to purchase with a margin of safety on price cannot protect investors from the volatility associated with stocks, incorrect assumptions or estimations on our part, declining fundamentals or external forces.
