2020 was a rollercoaster ride for investors and market players alike. The broad-based S&P500 witnessed a rapid shift towards bearish sentiment. However, the index recouped in no time, on the back of tech stocks that went skyrocketing. However, amid the mending market, many investors started shifting their interest towards small cap companies with high growth potential.

Small-cap stocks have market caps between US$300 million and US$2 billion. These stocks offer a substantial scope if you tap into their hidden potential. 

On that note, let us explore these three small-cap stocks and see how they have performed recently.
