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.

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.
