Small-cap stocks often become a preference among investors seeking large rewards against a relatively higher level of risk than other stocks. Small-cap companies, despite their smaller market capitalization, can grow immensely. This is what draws most investors towards them.
Readers should note that this growth potential comes with its own set of risks. Not every small-cap stock may turn out to be a success story. However, owning a small-cap stock is accompanied by a high level of volatility, which gives rise to price upswings and downswings.
