- Mid-cap stocks have huge growth prospects, with lower intensity to market volatility.

Mid-cap stocks are medium-sized companies having a market capitalisation between NZ$2 billion and NZ$10 billion.
These companies mostly outgrow their small-cap origins and are fast-growing. They have the potential to enhance their profitability and are less risky, unlike the small-cap stocks which are marked with high volatility, plus the slow-growing nature of the large-cap stocks.
That said, this article focuses on the five NZX mid-cap stocks having a tremendous possibility of becoming large-cap stocks.
