Summary

  • Small-cap stocks have historically outperformed large-cap stocks.

  • Whispir and Alcidion are a few small-cap stocks to consider.

Small-cap stocks belong to companies that have a low market capitalisation (m-cap).  A small-cap is a company with a m-cap between AU$50 and AU$500 million.

Small-cap stocks have historically outperformed large-cap stocks.  However, these carry higher risks compared to large-caps and mid-cap stocks. Thus, investors must be careful while picking up these stocks owing to their volatile nature.

The small-cap tech share Whispir is a software-as-a-service communications workflow platform provider. The stock has performed on a strong note in the past few years, including 2021. In the last one year, the stock gave a return of just over 32%.

However, it was still slightly short of its total addressable market (TAM) opportunity. The company’s management projects that it has a TAM of US$4.7 billion in just US.

Whispir recently raised capital raising significant capital and is expected to execute its growth strategy and capture a sizeable share of the growing market.

On 18 June 2021, the stock closed 2.90% higher at AU$2.84, compared to the previous closing on 17 June 2021.
