Smallcap investing is often preferred by high-risk investors aiming for significant gains resulting from high growth exposure. When implementing this investing approach, investors typically focus on companies with small market capitalization, ranging from C$ 300 million to C$ 2 billion, that could considerably grow their market size in future, supported by sound business operations.

Let's look at two TSX smallcap stocks -- Well Health Technologies (TSX: WELL) in the health sector and Sprott (TSX: SII) in the financial sector.

Well Health Technologies Corp (TSX: WELL)

Canadian healthcare service provider Well Health said its quarterly revenue grew by 395 per cent year-over-year (YoY) to C$ 126.5 million in the first quarter of FY2022. The health service company noted that its annualized revenue run-rate was over C$ 500 million while announcing its latest quarter results.

The WELL stock climbed by over six per cent quarter-to-date (QTD), while the S&P/TSX Capped Health Care Index rose by almost four per cent during this period. According to Refinitiv, Well Health has a Relative Strength Index (RSI) of 44.98, below the moderate level of 50. The RSI is considered an indicator of whether a stock is overbought or oversold.

Sprott Inc (TSX: SII)

Alternative asset management firm Sprott reported total net revenues of US$ 32.27 million in Q1 2022 compared to US$ 27.54 million in Q1 2021. The financial service firm also improved its profit substantially by posting a net profit of US$ 6.47 million in the latest quarter.

The SII stock slumped by over four per cent in 12 months. Refinitiv findings seem to show Sprott's stock to be on a bearish trend since its 52-week high of C$71.7 (April 19). Sprott’s RSI was 44.87 at the time of writing.

Bottomline

Smallcap stocks like Well and Sprott may diversify a portfolio to include the health and financial sector. Another important point is that both these companies hold a debt-to-equity ratio of less than one, which may mean lower risk. However, smallcap stocks can be volatile.
