What is a Small Cap?

First, you may be wondering what exactly a small cap is. If you are a new investor, our investor guide is especially interested in you.

Small caps (as the term is used in English) represent shares of small companies, i.e. the smallest companies on the stock exchange. Thus, companies with market capitalization between $300 million and $2 billion fall under this definition.

However, even if a company has a low market capitalization, that is not necessarily a bad thing. After all, these companies have the greatest potential for growth and have even been on the market for a very short time. While $2 billion may seem like a fortune, that number is nothing more than "change" when compared to the market capitalization of capital giants like Google and Amazon.

As a result, these stocks have higher long-term growth expectations, even if the current situation puts these assets in jeopardy.
